SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy review roundup - a mixed bag of accessible gameplay and a ton of fanservice

Posted by Dakota 'DarkHorse' Hills • September 10, 2018 at 4 p.m. PDT

SNK Heroines finally released late last week though it was likely overshadowed in the minds of many gamers by Marvel's Spider-Man releasing at the same time except for those deeper into the fighting game community.

The title features some of SNK's most recognizable female fighters — along with a female Terry Bogard — duking it out in a simplified crossover tag-team fighting game with a heavy focus on fanservice and character customization.

Reviews are also live all around the internet for the newest SNK fighter, but they aren't exactly glowing. SNK Heroines currently sits at a Metacritic score of 64 out of 100 while user reviews are a little higher at 70.

We've rounded up many of those reviews and more from other sites, and most of them agree that the core gameplay is at least fun and rewarding enough while you're playing with others in Versus Mode though there's not much else going for it.

The character customization tools are fairly in-depth, but the game lacks an Arcade Mode, the Story Mode is generally regarded as bad and the load times can also be quite poor on the Nintendo Switch version.

Most reviews refer to it as a party fighter that will likely not find much of a hardcore audience outside of a specific niche or those looking to play often with friends. You can find the review roundup after the jump.
