E3 2018: SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy Combines King of Fighters with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Throughout the years two or three games have attempted to break the previously established inclinations related with battling games. Blameworthy Gear Isuka attempted to include four player battle the conventional set up, Power Stone was fundamentally a gathering game and SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy needs to bring the universe of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale to the standard one versus one setting.

The experience is really straightforward. Select a group, battle like you would regularly and afterward prepare for things and anarchy finishing with somebody losing to a super move. What makes it fun is several things.

First and foremost, items go a long way. Some are simple, like something falls and stuns your opponent, where as others negatively impact both sides, something I was told resonated more with players. Using these items is crucial to being successful, as they have such a strong impact on how the match plays out. Once players get closer to defeat, they’re also given a random item in hopes of turning the tides. Sometimes it will work, where as other times you’ll still lose.

The only downside is very similar to All-Stars, which is a super is required to actually win. Good players should be able to dodge it and regardless of how well you do, a single mistake can easily cost you the match. It isn’t all bad though. Matches are generally quick and to the point, making it easy to shake off a loss.

To further this, a good number of costumes are present, along with other things to enhance the experience. Every character in the demo had a joke costume based off the game, their traditional look and then a serious one based off the character itself. These will need to be unlocked, though they make for a more robust offering than different colors.

While I didn’t experience SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy extensively, it looks like the type of game that will be fun in a party setting or to those looking for a quick game to play. With easy controls, multiple costumes and easy to understand mechanics and items, it makes for an experience closer to Mario Kart than Street Fighter.
