SNK Playmore has actually made a good decision, announcing that a port of the Neo Geo game SNK Vs Capcom: SVC Chaos is in the works for Xbox. Amazing news, given company president Koichi Sotoyama’s recent mission statement of: “We will focus our core business activities from games to pachinko and slot machines. Slot machines will be predominant, as at present the slots industry is growing in size and profitability…”.
Enough of the moaning. SVC for Xbox is slated to hit Japan in June, with a western release to follow shortly after.
As of this time, no Xbox Live functionality has been announced, though it’s likely Microsoft will heartily encourage online play, probably with some large bags of Yen.
Good news indeed. We'll bring you more soon, including an expected PlayStation 2 online announcement.
