SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy launches this summer. Similar to other fighting titles, leading up to release, we’ll hear more about the game’s roster.

In an interview with Honey’s Anime, producer Yasuyuki Oda indicated that SNK Heroines will include a few surprising characters. When asked if the cast will be large and whether there are plans for original characters, Oda said:

As part of a new collaboration with NIS America, a brand new fighting game from SNK is coming to Switch. SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is launching on Nintendo’s console this summer.

Recently, producer Yasuyuki Oda and director Kaito Soranaka were kind enough to field some questions about the game from Nintendo Everything. The two developers spoke about Switch, confirmed different game modes that will be present, and more.

You can read our full interview with Oda and Soranaka below.

Last week, Hey Poor Player conducted an interview with the director of SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, Kaito Soranaka, and the game’s producer, Yasuyuki Oda, to discuss SNK’s upcoming fighting game. During the interview, Oda explained that the development team is working to ensure that there are “no differences” between the Switch and PS4 versions of the game, but that they have had some “growing pains” while developing for Nintendo’s console.

Oda: First off, we’d like to state that we are working hard to make sure that there is no difference between the two platforms the game will be released on. We will say that there are growing pains while developing on the Switch because it’s our first time working with the hardware. That being said, everything we encountered we’ve anticipated beforehand because of those growing pains.
