Recently SNK revealed their upcoming 2.5D fighting game SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game will feature notable characters from the SNK library of female characters in a 2 vs 2 tournament-style fighting game.
With the game having been announced just recently, little is known about the modes that will be offered. DualShockers had the chance to sit down with producer Yasuyuki Oda and designer Kaito Soranaka to learn about the game’s Story Mode. Oda-san confirmed that a story mode will be included and that it’ll offer different dialogue depending on the pair of heroines you select.
“There will be a Story Mode offered in the game, but depending on the characters you chose, the conversations will change.”
For example, the Story between Mai and Nakoruru will be different than the story between Mai and Yuri.
At the moment of this writing, only six characters have been announced but even just with those, the possible story outcomes are already rather large. However, it remains to be seen if these stories will carry any weight behind them or if they will stick to the lighthearted tone shared with the game’s theme.
SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy has players choose two characters to take with them into a fight. During gameplay, they’ll be able to switch the heroines with the press of a button to extend combos or unleash powerful finishing moves. Coincidentally, connecting a finishing move is the only way to end the battle.
In case you missed it, from the same interview, we learned that the team plans to release a full game at launch with no current DLC character announcements.
SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy is coming to PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in 2018.
Our full interview with Oda-san and Soranaka-san will be published soon. Today we also got another trailer showing the inevitable costumes.
