At EVO Japan 2018, SNK and NIS America unveiled their upcoming fighting title featuring the lovely ladies of SNK. The game, titled “SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy”, is a two-on-two fighting game coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Summer 2018 and a spiritual successor to SNK Gals’ Fighters which also featured female characters from various SNK titles. The battle takes place in a mansion where the girls awaken following a big tournament and they search for a way out. SNK Heroines features character customization where you can dress the girls in various outfits.
As you can clearly see (and may’ve guessed), the game is heavy on fan service. The above picture shows left to right: Athena Asamiya, Kula Diamond, Mai Shiranui and Leona Hiedern. Samurai Shodown’s cutesy kunoichi, Nakoruru was revealed to be next on the list at EVO Japan 2018.
Nakoruru trades in her familiar outfit for a sultry spellcaster look as she makes her SNK HEROINES debut! She originally appearing in Samurai Shodown in 1993, and most recently appeared as part of the Another World Team in 2016’s The King of Fighters XIV. With her lightning-quick attacks and loyal bird companion, Mamahama (who is now a bat familiar), she is looking to bring her brand of 18th century beatdown in SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy!
