The women of SNK’s fighting game franchises are coming together for a brand-new, stand-alone title: SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy. The two-on-two fighting game is coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 this summer, SNK and publisher NIS America announced today.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy will feature 14 playable characters plucked from the King of Fighters and Art of Fighting franchises. Confirmed characters include Athena Asamiya, Kula Diamond, Leona Heidern, Mai Shiranui and Yuri Sakazaki.

The game will feature a one-button fighting mechanic and a special finishing move known as the Dream Finish. The game’s official description says players will make use of special items in combat “to turn the tide of battle.”

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy will support online battles, as well as a spectator mode where players can bet on matches using an in-game currency. Those winnings can be spent to buy voice clips and other cosmetic accessories that will let players customize their characters.

SNK and NIS America will release SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy on Switch this summer. Here’s a sparkly logo to whet your appetite.
