SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy joins an already stuffed September release schedule

Don’t you, forget about it

Normally, when we’re talking about gaming, November is the month to beat. This is when most, if not all, of the heavy hitters of the industry release, trying to get as much of that holiday cash as possible. That’s a normal year, but the second half of 2018 is anything but normal because of Red Dead Redemption 2. The oft-delayed western is an absolute monster. It already scared this year’s Call of Duty out of its normal release period and now I can’t help but think more titles are trying to get out the door before it drops at the end of the October.

Maybe that’s why September is turning into the hottest month in gaming. Over the past week or so we’ve seen confirmations for the releases of Dragon Quest XI, Spider-Man, and the long-rumored/recently confirmed Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Those three huge titles join another behemoth in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Now, yet another game is staking its claim in the September calendar.

Announced during its PAX East panel, NIS America confirmed SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy will drop on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on September 7, aka Spider-Man day. Daring release date if you ask me, one that harkens back to January 26, 2010 when Capcom thought it best to release Tatsunoko vs. Capcom on the same day as Mass Effect 2 and MAG.

Here’s to hoping people don’t forget about it because I had a lot of fun with the game when I played a preview of it earlier this year. Consider me a day-one purchase, but if you’re not on board yet, perhaps this trailer featuring new addition to the roster Shermie from The King of Fighters will change your mind.
