They insist the skimpy outfits are vital to the plot
[Update: Love Heart has received her own trailer. You can catch it below.]
SNK have dropped a new Japanese trailer for their upcoming all-girl fighting title SNK Heorines: Tag Team Frenzy, which is headed to PS4 and Nintendo Switch later this year.
The video focuses on the game’s customisation mechanic, in which players can apply certain gear, taunts and costumes to their rumble ladies to give them added advantage in battle. We also get to see brief clips of the sky buccaneer, Love Heart, who has recently been added to the game’s roster, rocking a badass Stetson/moustache combo.
Speaking of Love Heart, the super-OP fighter also got her own gameplay trailer, which sees her, in her all-new Five-O outfit, cutting down the opposition with her powerful sword-attacks from KoF XIV. Now with added playing cards!
I’m looking forward to checking this out, having been a dedicated SNK fan for some decades, but I am disappointed that the game appears to be playing it safe with its KoF-based roster, which thus far excludes characters from SNK classics such as Metal Slug and Last Blade. There’s still plenty of time to go before launch though, so fingers crossed.
SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy launches September 7 on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. An arcade version of the game is also in production.
