This weekend at EVO Japan, the SNK booth was packed with activity. Between the announcement of the latest DLC addition to King of Fighters XIV, Oswald, as well as the hype for SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, there was plenty to do for long-time fans of SNK's games. Over the course of the weekend, attendees reported seeing Nakoruru among the cosplay models that were taking photos with fans at the booth, leading several to believe that the character would be the next announcement for SNK Heroines. Well, it looks like those guesses were correct: SNK has officially confirmed that Nakoruru will be available as part of the roster, presumably at launch.

SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy is a pretty self-explanatory title, pulling heroines from various video game franchises under the SNK banner together in a 3-on-3 fighting game that involves weird costumes and classic combos. Nakoruru, who originally appeared in Samurai Showdown, later made her way to other fighting game titles like King of Fighters, similar to other heroines like Mai Shiranui from Fatal Fury and Leona from Psycho Soldier.

SNK has released an official summary for the game, as well as new gameplay, which you can check out below:

Play online or with friends as 14 of SNK's iconic heroines in the brand-new 2 vs 2 fighting game, SNK HEROINES Tag Team Frenzy!
