Upon the announcement of 20 DLC characters in a 40 character cast, many players were quick to decry Arc System Works for their choices in BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle. Fortunately for SNK fans, the company have been keeping an eye on community complaints for their upcoming fighter.
In a recent interview with DualShockers, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy producer Kaito Soranaka stated that SNK “really needs to think about how we are going to approach future announcements”, following the negative feedback to BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle‘s character roster reveal. Clearly the backlash has echoed around the Japanese games industry, with other companies hopefully learning a valuable lesson.
NISA’s Senior Product Marketing Manager Travis Shrodes followed up this answer with his own response, stating that Tag Team Frenzy will launch as “a ‘full game'” later this year — suggesting that there will be no day one DLC characters like with BBTAG.
SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy launches for both Nintendo Switch and PS4 in 2018.
