During this morning's Nintendo Direct Mini, a new fighting game for the Switch was unveiled. SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy allows players to select fan-favorite female fighters from the company's IPs and engage in 2v2 battles.

The gameplay and graphics style are reminiscent of SNK's most recent fighting title, King of Fighters 14. The trailer makes note that players can activate moves in battle using "just one button."

Unlike the latest installment in the KOF series, SNK Heroines gives competitors the ability to switch between characters mid-round. We see a combo that begins with Kula, activates a switch, and ends with Athena.

So far, five characters have been revealed. Kula and Athena, as previously mentioned, as well as Yuri, Leona, and Mai will all be playable.

Another feature that makes this game different than KOF14 is its implementation of items. Players can utilize a huge variety of items in battle to gain the upper-hand.

According to the trailer, simply bring down your opponent's health won't win you the match. When their health is low, you'll have to land the "ultra special move" called Dream Finish to score the KO.
