Illustrator Eisuke Ogura has been around as a graphic designer and illustrator for SNK since 1996 when he started with the Fatal Fury series, and he recently made an appearance to talk heroine designs at Anime Expo 2018.
Here’s an upload from the event courtesy NIS America:
Ogura starts out by talking about the origins of Athena, who was marketed like an idol which was a little different at the time. He then talks about designing character costumes and the ideas that went into their creation, and more.
SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy releases on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on September 7, 2018. Check out our previous report for a look at the latest character trailer with Terry Bogard (female).
