SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy will also be headed to the PlayStation 4.
Both versions will get a special “Dream Diamond Edition” that will cost $119.99.
NIS America and SNK have announced that a new fighting game, called SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, will be headed to the Nintendo Switch.
There isn’t much known about the title beyond that it will be a 2v2 title and that it will feature the female characters from SNK-developed fighting games. However, based on the description provided by Nintendo, it appears that this won’t be a particularly serious fighting game, as there will be an extensive costume/accessory system and players will be able execute special attacks with a single button press.
Here’s more about the game from Nintendo:

SNK doesn’t have a particularly long history with Nintendo, as the last time it released a physical fighting game on one of its home consoles was Fatal Fury 2 back in 1994. Since then, the only times a SNK fighting game arrived on a Nintendo console was either in the form of a collection or as a stand-alone on the virtual console.
However, now it looks like things are changing and perhaps indicating that KOFXIV or future titles might head there as well.
