So far we’ve only been introduced to six classic or recent characters revealed for SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, but producer Yasuyuki Oda shared in a recent interview that there will be some surprises. [Thanks, Honey’s Anime.]
Here are some highlights from the interview:
With a title like SNK Heroines, is it fair to assume we will see a large cast of SNK Characters? Also, are there plans for original characters designed specifically for this new title?
Yasuyuki Oda, Producer: Yes. We plan to have some characters that will surprise people when joining the cast.
Director Kaito Soranaka answered a question about their motivation to have tag mechanics in SNK Heroines:
It feels like a lot of recent games have started to include tag mechanics. Was there a particular motivation to have tag mechanics in this game?
Kaito Soranaka, Director: There were many challenges in making this title. One challenge was displaying more than two characters on-screen at a time. In addition to that, because this game has such a big emphasis on characters, we wanted to include things like, “What would a conversation between this character and this character be like? How would they become allies?” That was our motivation.
And here’s a little bonus question:
Are you making plans for a sequel to Garou: Mark of the Wolves?
Yasuyuki Oda: I will continue to make them until the day I die.
