UPDATE: Turns out SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is coming to PS4 as well, along with a special Diamond Dream Edition. This collector’s edition comes with a two-disc OST, an artbook, a special lapel pin set, a special collector’s box, as well as a Fatal Cutie cap, a sleeveless Mai Shiranui shirt, a SNK sweatband and even a themed workout towel. If you’re really into your SNK heroines, you can pre-order this collector’s edition over on the NISA online store for $119.99.
Original story: Revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, SNK and NIS America have revealed a brand new 2v2 fighter, which has all of SNK’s leading ladies battling it out. Titled SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, this tag fighter can have up to four players clashing in either local play or online — with a fighting system that a little more chaotic when compared other SNK games.
Along with simplified special moves which can be performed with a single button, players can utilize items that spawn on screen to turn the tide of a fight. It’s not enough just to reduce your opponent’s health to zero though, as you can only finish off an opponent in SNK Heroines by using a Dream Finish — a character-specific super move.
So far, Athena Asamiya, Kula Diamond, Mai Shiranui, Leona Heidern and Yuri Sakazaki have been confirmed as playable fighters — with more to be announced in the future. Every character in SNK Heroines can be customized with different outfits, accessories and even voice clips, so you can really make your favorite fighters stand out.
Acting as a spiritual successor to SNK Gals’ Fighters back on the Neo Geo Pocket Color, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is scheduled to launch on Nintendo Switch this summer.
