SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is definitely an interesting choice for SNK’s first non-King of Fighters fighting game in years. As such, many fans are bound to have more than a few questions about it; now, SNK’s Yasuyuki Oda answers some of these questions in a recent interview by Honey’s Anime, covering a lot of ground.

Some of it cover topics that Oda and other SNK staff have already talked about in other interviews. One of these — one of the most popular topics about the game, in fact — covers the game’s characters. Previously, Oda hinted that SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy would have characters not normally seen in King of Fighters games. In this new interview, Oda seems to reiterate that, stating that they “have some characters that will surprise people”.

Additionally, when asked about it, Oda also mentioned that  they are looking into possibly having DLC characters to expand the cast in the future. This, of course, will not be surprising to most fans, considering that SNK has been fairly generous with DLC characters for The King of Fighters XIV.

Now, while the rest of the questions in the interview are still mostly covering the same topics we’ve seen previous interviews, Honey’s Anime does bring up on important question: are they working on a sequel to Garou: Mark of the Wolves? To this, Oda gave the very vague answer of “I will continue to make them until the day I die.” Garou fans, take that as you will.
