NIS America and SNK Corporation released a new trailer for SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy. The trailer covers the game’s general story and some of the gameplay features.
The story is attached to the game’s single-player campaign, which centers around the waifu-fighters from King of Fighters XIV being captured by a mysterious fellow who keeps them under duress until they do his bidding by battling through a special tournament event.
The trailer runs through the gist of the story along with outlining all the cosplay costumes you’ll be able to customize the lovely ladies with. Check it out below.
There’s so much plot.
The gameplay is probably what’s going to be its weakest draw. There are no command moves in SNK Heroines. Instead, all of the moves are carried out with single button presses, and you can combo just by rapidly tapping (read: mashing) the buttons to perform moves.
It’s obviously not designed to be a competitive fighter or an eSports entrant, but is instead looking to cash in on the cheesecake business that Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja are leaving behind in pursuits of the phantom audience with the experimental fighter known as Dead or Alive 6.
You can perform special moves with a simple button press to finish the match, or tag out when your meter is too low.
The game also boasts a rather significant number of customization parts. Each of the girls have three unique costumes, one of which is their original costume from the game they derived from. The other two costumes are other fantasy outfits, with one outfit usually being a sexy cosplay getup.
With the money you earn from winning fights, you can head into the customization mode and modify the head, face, face paint, back, hips, hands, and legs. Each girl also has access to four different voices.
You can also save your creations and use them during the match.
Oh yeah… and there’s also a gravure photo mode. So after you customize their outfits you can pose the girls and snap photos.
SNK is literally muscling in on Team Ninja’s territory… well, they would have been muscling in if Team Ninja hadn’t wimped out and removed the gravure mode from Dead or Alive 6. But anyway, SNK is picking up where Team Ninja left off, and you’ll be able to enjoy the new modes and customization features when the game launches on September 7th for PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
