Hopefully we’ll get to play it someday
Outside the realm of Super Smash Bros. and Project X Zone, we haven’t had many opportunities to see Capcom and Sega characters go head to head, but there’s plenty of fans out there of both developers who would like to see that changed.
One such person has been attempting to make that an unofficial reality with madxruler recently showing off the progress being made in their Sega vs. Capcom: The Next Level fan project.
Although it’s not exactly a bombastic trailer, the new update footage for Sega vs. Capcom is looking pretty promising with showing off some new menus and UI as well as a cool training stage out in space.
The new video focuses on quite a few nice looking attacks from Sonic the Hedgehog comboing off on Mega Man X, as well as other animations for Morrigan, Alien vs. Predator’s Linn Kurosawa, Streets of Rage’s Axel, Skies of Arcadia’s Vyse, Virtua Fighter’s Akira, and Rival Schools’ Batsu.

First teased back in early 2021, Sega vs. Capcom is being built in the Ikemen-Go open source fighting game engine and has been making steady progress the past few years including the use of some fairly impressive original sprites / models.
As far as we can tell right now, there’s no real way for the public to try out the fan fighting game, but hopefully we’ll get to someday in the near future.

Capcom themselves do have an unannounced major project coming in the next few months, but we kinda doubt it’d be a dream fighter like this.
