Here's our first look at King of Fighters For Girls... the King of Fighters game made especially for girls

Why fight Iori when you can date him?

We don't think it's quite a fighting game (we're not exactly sure what it is at this point) but an upcoming otome game from SNK titled "King of Fighters For Girls" is en route.

For those wondering, an otome title is essentially a story-based video game geared towards women that usually includes romantic relationship building. According to Dengeki Online via Game Revolution, players will assume the role of a female character who has run into a streak of bad luck and therefore taken a job as a manager for competitors in the King of Fighters tournament.

Coming along after SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, which is more or less just as much about the waifus as it is about the fighting, SNK seems to be looking to make a title with the aim of appeasing the ladies as opposed to men.

Here in the West such an approach may come off as socially antiquated and even a bit offensive, (the voyeuristic story plot for TTF stirred up a bit of controversy after the game's release last year) but it appears developers expect this will do just fine in Japan.

There's actually a full website and Twitter page already set up for King of Fighters For Girls, though most all the information is in Japanese. At this time it looks like the game will be on mobile devices, and we have no word as to whether or not it's planned for console or PC.

You can see a few screen shots featuring images from KOFFG, and then the reveal trailer below the gallery. We'd love to hear your reactions to this in the comments after you're done.
