NIS America announced on Thursday that a gender-swapped female Terry Bogard will be a playable character for the SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy fighting game. The company began streaming a trailer on Thursday:
The original male Terry Bogard is from the Fatal Fury fighting game series. He last appeared in SNK Playmore's King of Fighters XIV fighting game for PlayStation 4.
The game will ship for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on September 6. The limited edition will include one of 27 acrylic character figures, and the first copies of the game will include a soundtrack CD. People who pre-order through SNK Online Shop will receive a reproduction signed paper board.
NIS America is partnering with SNK to release the game on both consoles in North America and Europe on September 7. NIS America will release the game physically and digitally on both consoles, but the PS4 retail version will only be available as a limited edition on the official SNK Online Store.
The limited Diamond Dream Edition for both Nintendo Switch and PS4 retails for US$119.99 and includes the game, a deluxe hardcover artbook, a two-disc original soundtrack, a lapel pin set, a large sleeveless shirt, a "fatal cutie" cap, a 12" x 42" workout towel, a wrist sweatband, and the deluxe collector's box.
The two-on-two tag-team fighting game will feature characters from the SNK universe, including Athena Asamiya, Kula Diamond, Leona Heidern, Mai Shiranui, Yuri Sakazaki, Nakoruru, Sylvie, Zarina, Love Heart, Luong, Mian, and Mui Mui. The game will also include special Dream Finish techniques and character customization with up to 100 accessories.
