Nintendo vs. Capcom is a crossover fighting game, developed by Fusion Entertainment for the Hybrid Fusion. It features Nintendo and Capcom characters fighting each other in a large amount of stages. It was confirmed in summer 2011, expected to be released in early 2012.


The game features drawn, 2D characters, also fighting in 2D stages similar to other vs. Capcom games. It's best played with the Fusion Controller, which enables to battle and fight better, doing combos easier via quick button combinations.

The player has to choose two characters to battle, and then fight with them, with the power to change them in middle of the battle in multiple ways. When characters switch, the incoming one performs a special attack upon entry, and the previous one can regenerate health. Two characters can perform special moves together, called the Combinated Finisher's. When the two characters in a team are KO'd, the battle ends. In team battles, there can be two or three players in a team, but with only one or two on each team on the screen at once unless in Single player mode.

In battle, the player can use Light Middle and Strong attacks, and various combos such as the Inferno Storm.


The game has an Arcade Mode, in which the player faces computer-controlled AI characters repeatedly until facing a Rival and then, the final boss. Time attack and Survival modes are also available, and require the player to defeat every character in the game. One of the most popular modes in the game is the VS Mode, where players can fight other friends, and the Online Mode, where players can fight people all around the world and look for friends.

Playable characters

The game features 42 playable characters from Nintendo and Capcom games, fighting each other. The roster is evenly divided between them, with 26 characters in Nintendo's side and 26 characters in Capcom's. Some characters, such as Mallow, make cameos, such as following Geno and helping him in some attacks as a duo.
