Anyone who knows me knows you could put shit in a box and as long as it says SNK on it I’m going to pre-order it. And as soon as I read that a game called SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy I got super hyped because SNK did a similar thing for the Neo Geo Pocket Color ages ago called SNK Gals Fighters is a really fun and awesome game.
But yeah these costumes. Seems like they’re going for the crowd that plays their mobile games with this so I’m not expecting much.
It’s a real letdown because, I know Mai Shiranui is of course the mascot female character of the company and all but I always liked that more than other fighting game companies SNK has a huge number of female characters that were all both unique and well designed. It’s been frustrating how as time has gone on and in more recent games, a lot of them have been softened and homogenized into “waifu material” designs and personalities which is really lame. This just seems like the culmination of that as I recognize some of the outfits from Metal Slug Advance which is SNK’s other “holy shit how do you even fit this many cheesecake characters into a single product” game. Kind of a shame since SNK created so many characters that are awesome enough to stand on their own.
I still don’t own a Switch yet, we’ll get one eventually, just right now there’s nothing totally exclusive to it that we need. I do want to say though that every Wii U port that’s coming out for it, all of those games are GREAT so if you missed out on the Wii U check them out. Hyrule Warriors especially, the DLC they made for that game is no joke, I put a lot of time into that game.
Have to echo Devour about Dragon Quest Builders though, the first game is fun (and the Dragon Quest aesthetic is amazing as usual) but is a bit restrictive and more linear than you might be lead to believe. I liked it but I’d still say to skip it and wait for the second one.
