There has been a lot of speculation regarding a potential Nintendo Direct on January 11. This has been made more interesting by 18 Amazon placeholders for Switch titles. Now, Emily (may or may not be Rogers), an admin on Resetera has confirmed in some capacity that SNK has a Switch game in development and that it is not KoFXIV, SamSho VII, or Metal Slug 8 (https://www.resetera.com/threads/amazon-lists-18-unannounced-nintendo-switch-game-skus-tba-at-nintendo-direct.13501/page-22#post-2708238).

It would not surprise me if SNK took advantage of the Switch's mobile architecture and ported Metal Slug Defense and/or Attack.

SamSho VII already exists so maybe its SamSho VIII !!

On a serious note, I doubt its anything major like that.

That’s awesome. They’ve picked up a lot of new fans on the switch who have supported the aca rereleases. It’s definitely a good idea to show those supporters some love with a new title.

I think heís referring to the taito type x2 release, Samurai showdown sen. Iíve seen people refer to it as part 7, but I guess technically itís not in the name...

This would definitely be awesome. Even ACA style rereleases of some of these titles would be perfect for the switch.

Sad but true. It would be great for the ngpc and the hng64 to see some kind of love these days. I know the hng64 game assets and code have been lost to time, but it would still be great if it somehow happened.

The ACA series seems to be selling quite well on Switch.

So it would be smart to create a new game for Switch (new Metal Slug, new Samurai Shodown ). Considering how well eertyhing is working on Switch, you can have profit and maybe resurrect an old franchise...

For exmaple, there are no fighting games (apart from the ACA series) on Switch...(Arms and Smash Bros are not "fighting games" for me) so a new Samurai Shodown would be awesome and a great market opportunity

An SNK Gal's Fighters spiritual successor is certainly better than a simple port of one of SNK's mobile based titles such as "You are the Hero" or "Metal Slug Defense" as some were expecting.

Looks interesting. The item customization certainly opens the door for some cool modes like the "Making" mode from kof R-2. The use of special and unique items in that game's character building mode made for some hilarious matches (Being able to have your character use a gun mid-match to shoot your opponent was just priceless lol).


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p6wvaDLoAM

Off topic: Since this new title appears to use assets from kof14, I wonder if a project like Garou 2 would be done in a similar fashion should SNK choose to revive that title.

With graphics being 3D across the board, a big part of what made SNK special to me has disappeared. If Garou came out looking like this or KOF I would be cool with it, but hardly overjoyed.

Starting to think that any future SNK fighters will just be KOF14 with different title screens and smaller rosters.

fakeXsound
01-11-2018, 11:05 AM
I'm pretty disappointed. I don't know who this is supposed to appeal to. Is there really any crossover between waifu fans and hardcore fighting game fans?

I would have really liked a super deformed, sprite-based, simplified fighter like an NGPC game. Maybe even something like KoF14 Mini or something like that with the roster and move sets of 14 but with the graphics of a high res NGPC.

Fygee
01-11-2018, 11:24 AM
The waifu is strong with this one.

Personally, while I'm not into the whole "waifu" thing, if the core game is fun to play, I'm down. Been a while since there's been a quality "silly fighter" as I call them. The world needs more Gals' Fighters, Matrimelees, and Waku Waku 7s. That and it'll hopefully be a great opportunity to play as some female characters we haven't seen in a while. Hoping Xiangfei, Shiki, Akari, Charlotte, and Cham Cham get some love.

neojedi
01-11-2018, 11:43 AM
lol fucking waifu fighter.
Heh... they should've called the game "Wai-Fu!"

I like seeing that SNK can actually create something original again, but definitely not what I was hoping for. Still suffering from 2D SamSho withdrawal. ;_;

Hoping that Shermie, Blue Mary, B. Jenet, and Iroha make a comeback too.

The cover to the artbook has some silhouettes of the cast. I think I see King and Sylvie Paula Paula, but with the characters not appearing in their standard/classic costumes in the art it's a little tough to identify them at a glance. Also, since the character pin set included with the special edition comes with 14 pins, perhaps we can assume that not all of the female fighters will make it in from kof14?

Is the world ready for the possible return of "Miss X"? :lolz:

I'm wondering whether the fan character design contest winner (http://www.siliconera.com/2017/11/05/snk-picks-saudi-arabian-fans-design-character-design-contest/) will show up in this game. It'd make a lot of sense because a fan-designed character could be a risk for a flagship release, but would be a neat PR plug for a game like this. However, I'm pretty sure that the fan design contest allowed both male and female entries, so it'd be kind of a raw deal if only a female entry had a chance to win.

Something about this makes me feel like KOF XIV is possibly going to come to the Switch someday in the future. Like they were maybe fiddling with the same engine and assets to see how well it'd run on there, and this is a test? Then again, it's coming out on the PS4 too, so who knows. I'll pick it up since it looks decent, plus any way to support SNK and motivate them to make new games is fine by me.

Probably a fair segment. Probably also hoping to rope in others who aren't.

That costume dress up and darkstalkers felicia cosplay kind of thing won't be by accident, and is probably like catnip [sorry] to some people. I always thought xiv looked a bit too much like cosplaying real dolls, rather than the very characterful xiii.

This seems to take it a bit further in the exploitative direction than cute or characterful. If nothing else I might have hoped they would take the opportunity to develop a more toony art style in game to match the ui and character approach. Instead the assessment of xiv, but less, but now with more dress up, might just be the basic direction here.

Not what I want. But might be a smart move, given where they seemed to be heading with their mascot etc.

For anyone concerned about possible censorship by NIS America, they released this statement on their twitter account:

ďThe content released globally will contain the same costumes and content. Nothing will be removed or replaced in the Western release. As for controls, it is more accessible for all players, and not just the hardcore fighting gamers :) You will use your entire controller.Ē

Their trailer says otherwise. Listen to people's actions & track record, not their PR statements. If any of you are Y's Fans you know what I'm referring to. NISA is not to be trusted with any game, japanese or otherwise. Odds are they're going to censor a bunch of things, or at the very least accidentally break the game with their shoddy coding.

Looks good. Would be a bummer if there is no physical copy on ps4. Will probably gran it for switch although I will need a switch first. Hopefully the costumes are more than variations of bikinis. With only what looks like 10 or so characters available, hopefully SNK doesn't rape us with DLC.

Fygee
01-12-2018, 02:24 PM
Looks like Fio to me. Also Sylvie on the bottom left. Probably King or Shiki in the center left. Leona on top. No clue on the others. The one holding the cross with a heart on it is probably new.

Hopefully the roster ends up being bigger than this.

Dr. Meat
01-12-2018, 02:55 PM
Yeah, it'd be really disappointing if that was it. Especially since KoFXIV had 50 characters in it. Dropping down to this few in a tag-team style game would be pretty sad, even if there was a decent amount of customization for each character.

I'm just glad the Japanese clip is there proving what has come out that the US version of the video was a puritanical pile of crap thanks to NOA being censor happy over offending anyone during a direct.

I really do like SNK Gals Fighters on my NGPC so this game is a definite pick up as is that Ys game too as I've enjoyed the franchise since the original TG CD in the 90s.

Supposedly reporting they aren't actually going to sensor it. Really hoping they are being honest, but we'll find out soon enough.

I could see them toning it down for the direct for the US, which while still crap, shouldn't be a surprise.

im a huge SNK groupy so I will be buying this for any platform it is released on. This new breath of life that SNK has since KOF XIV has me excited for anything they will release. My stupid theory is that Capcom Vs SNK 3 will be a thing, and it will be a 2v2 tag battle. Marvel vs Capcom Infinite + SNK Heroines - Marvel = CvS3. Plus lets be real, with the success of DBFZ and how its putting a hurt on Capcom, CvS3 has to be coming! Of course, this is just my opinion!

Heads up to anyone who pre-ordered from NIS or SNK Online between 1/23 and 2/26 or on 2/28: The order site was compromised during those times. Check your email to see if your credit card number got jacked.

Edit to prevent panic attacks: Even if you were not affected you'll receive a FYI mail no matter what, but you should have extra mail if you were affected.

Maybe Sony should respect small publishers more, keep pissing the little guy off they will take their ball to another playground. Triple A titles can kill a dev quickly if it's not good. Little devs and publishers can create a solid revenue stream and also take chances on creative properties.

But there are really only 14 characters? That's not a lot, huh?

I'm still pre-ordered, but the roster is turning out to be disappointingly like a riff on KOF XIV. Probably makes sense from a development point of view so they can re-use assets while building cash for a major release, but this game needed a few more characters to create its own identity. Rosa, Kisarah, Fio, and others would have worked. Well, maybe we'll get 1 more outsider.

DLC characters are a given, and I get a feeling they're purposefully holding some popular choices back in order to snag some of that sweet, sweet DLC moolah.

The lack of King and Eri or Fio is pretty alarming to me. King is technically the OG SNK fighting game woman since AOF came out before FF2. What gives? Sure, she's guaranteed to be a DLC character, but she deserves an original roster spot.

As a business, they should be appealing to their customer base. If we don't care about a throwaway pachislo character who got included in their mixed result attempt at a new KOF, why are we held accountable for "not supporting SNK?" That is the whole point, vote with your wallet and maybe they will try a little harder.

We definitely don't have to support their new stuff just to keep them alive; Ledo is already doing that. But this game seems to be directly aimed at an Asian audience so I don't think they have crazy sale expectations for the west.

the market is pushing in that direction. DBFZ is said to have sold millions and is leading the genre this year in the competition.
the more technical a fighting game and less inviting it is to casuals, the more its ignored if its not from the overrated top companies or brands.

http://www.siliconera.com/2018/08/02/snk-heroines-next-fighter-is-terry-bogard/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFC4M36IWSE

the roster picks are amusing, but what harms SNK Heroines profits is not the simplified aspects but the combat, but how they present the gameplay foundation as a whole.

in my opinion SNK Heroines should have been KOF with an all female roster. a Queen of Fighters basically. They don't need to crank the fanservice to 11 to make an all female fighting game appealing. the sex appeal takes care of itself, the game should focus on delivering a fighting game that rivals or surpasses KOFXIV.

its just messed up how their mindset is that "if its an all female fighting game, it has to have a smaller roster, it has to be pillow fisted combat presentation, it has to have a gimmicky tag team format instead of a proper 3 vs 3 elimination format. I mean heck, its just a wasted opportunity having it go in the direction of "fighting game for absolute perverts" angle.

they could have treated it as a serious competition. it could be fun and beautiful, without being trashy.
it can be otherworldly and have gender benders without presenting the game like a sex predator's mansion.

but the sexism culture in Japan is partially to blame. Women being belittled, ridiculed, and objectified to the extremes. they cant even consistently japanese games centered on female protagonists without it being marketed and designed like its exclusively intended for male perverts, while leaving female gamers out of the equation.

even with the low budget cap they have, they could have made a respectable all SNK womens fighting game. but they set the game up to be remembered as some kind of guilty pleasure for basement dwellers.

DOA5LR has a lot of optional fanservice material, but it still treats itself as a serious competitive tournament first.
even if it had an all female roster, its overall presentation makes it more inviting to all demographics.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIEhDbnu8vA

yea even though SNK Heroines is based on Gal Fighters, that doesnt mean it has to be treated like a sex show.

and of course, they shouldn't censor nor ruin the character designs like some western devs do to their female characters, being so conservative and making some of their female characters look masculine and ugly and wearing too modest clothing as if their company has been taken over by Iran. so terrible. thats the opposite extreme SNK should not do either.

SNK Heroines could have been more properly presented and balanced, which in turn could make it profit more and fund KOFXV even further.
its insane even Rumble Roses XX is generally more mature and serious than how SNK Heroines is presented.
you dont see some pervy dude behind the scenes kidnapping female wrestlers and force them to wear ridiculous outfits in Rumble Roses games.

even Pretty Fighter X is quite respectable and the girls are their own boss in a serious competition they CHOSE to participate in.

but its a tough call. SNK needs all the support it can get and its a crime KOFXIV didnt sell as much as it should have. its a total injustice that SFV sold more.
buying SNK Heroines may offend one's standards and principles for female representation, but at the sametime,
skipping it would betray the innocent side of the game, and turn one's back on the SNK fan favorites and the overall girl power and female glorification side of the game also represents. and even a simple game like this still has developers put a lot of hours and hard work to get it completed. and admittingly, it is the best graphics all female fighting game to date, with better textures and visuals than KOFXIV. and the game mechanics appear complex enough.
I think it could still be fun and worthwhile.

I wonder if Demetri used Midnight Bliss on Terry and never changed him back.

From a vampire's perspective, it wouldn't make sense to change them back. gameplay wise, they change back due to gameplay balance, but lore wise, Demitri doesn't change back women he seduced. they either are killed if he chooses to completely drain them, or keep them as servants.
SVC is its own reality, so it doesn't interfere with the Garou and KOF lore/timeline. Demitri wouldnt throw away a women he likes, whether they were born female or changed to female.

http://darkstalkers.wikia.com/wiki/Midnight_Bliss

http://darkstalkers.wikia.com/wiki/Demitri_Maximoff

In SVC dimension, would think someone as charismatic as Terry would be kept as a wife/servant. and Darkstalkers characters are tiered higher than SNK and Capcom characters. There's really no one canonically that can defeat Demitri in SVC except perhaps Goddess Athena.
Demitri currently has about 40 servants in his castle, there's no said cap on how many servants/concubines he would allow.

and anyways especially with an open ended genre like fighting games, any realities and outcomes are possible and branch out to their own reality timeline.
and something like CVS Chaos is even more open ended than KOF stories, so anything is possible.

You would think SNK could have gotten more for Iori. Not Tifa or Terra, but maybe a Quistis or Lulu. For an even trade, it should have at least been Thief Arthur plus a player to be named later.

Agreed. Perhaps there are other guest characters incoming from other franchises/companies. Characters from DOA or Senran Kagura would be appropriate considering the direction snk took with this game.

Anyone got this yet? I'm hoping my Switch copy will have been posted when I get home. From the reviews I've read it seems like it'll be a fun time, even if it doesn't have much longevity.

Quick comments:
- Love the Neo Geo jingle during bootup
- These characters seem large to me, game looks more like AOF than KOF
- This game plays like Smash Melee, though

I may have missed this in the previews, but there are no qcf/charge motions (so far) and everything is based on button and direction with buttons for throw, guard, tag, etc. This game seems to play like a 1v1 version of Smash Bros with a tag mechanic. I started out playing with a stick and had to switch to pad, this game seems built for pad play. The good news is that game has a clear identity and it is nothing like KOF. The bad news is that anyone who is really into KOF will probably hate on this game. I think SNK is shooting for a completely different demographic than the KOF heads with this release.

Game runs like hot garbage on the Switch. When. The particle effects hit (which is like almost every move because of a shadow, sparkle, hearts, pcbs) the game drops to like 15 fps. Makes juggles hard to achieve. I'd be interested in how this plays on PS4. I do kinda enjoy the system, as it feels like Evil Zone for PSone.

Oldschool fans aren't the target audience for this game but oldschoolers that enjoy the lore will find enough to amuse them. For oldschoolers looking for a super technical fighter, you aren't going to find it here. It's a budget title, and I don't think it's meant to be anything other than a fun distraction.

I don't think it's very good on a technical or mechanical level, but there is stuff to unlock.

I think the game looks pretty fucking ugly, though. Even the cutscenes are drawn poorly. Still, decent fanservice moments (and I don't just mean the sexy stuff, although there is more than a little of that) abound. Yuri's ending is especially amusing.

I agree with the point on the lore. Unless I'm mistaken, every possible 2-person team seems to have unique dialogs between the members at the start and end of the story mode which draw heavily on the character lore.

Edit: I'm not quite sure if SNK pulled this off or not yet. Leona and Shermie are clearly talking to each other in the pre-boss-fight dialog, while Athena and Terry seem to be shouting things at the boss which don't reference their teammate in any way and could be interchanged with other characters.

Not sure if this is the case with the Switch, but the PS4 lets you play while installing the game and doesn't tell you it's installing. Once the install finishes on the PS4, the performance glitches go away.

Yikes, here's hoping the Switch gets patched.

Overall impression: This is a nice, fun departure from the norm for SNK, but shouldn't have been treated as a major release. I think if it had been released as a $20 indy-like game it would get a decent reception for what it is, but for $50 it should have had a ton of modes a la Smash. This thread was mostly about the roster leading up to the release, but it is really the gameplay variety and not the roster that is going to be the problem.

Now that I've played the Switch version, a few thoughts...

The controls for this game are a complete mystery to me. I've got moves coming out all over the place, and just hoping they are timed correctly for a combo. It's weird to have all these KOF moves coming out without doing any of the motions for them.

You're supposed to press R or something to end the matches when the opponent is in the red, right? But that doesn't really seem to be working for me so far. I've been able to end some of the matches by mashing all the shoulder buttons and tagging like crazy in the process until finally a finishing move comes out. I gave up and quit after only winning 3-4 matches. A little help here please?

So Kukri, the villain, made all the characters dress in the pervy clothes? Wouldn't that make the villain an ally of the hentai player's wishes? So really the bad guy is the good guy to the target audience.

There's no way the Switch version is running in 1080p when docked, it's way too shimmery. It must be 720p, or at least lack any anti-aliasing. Looks pretty poor by today's standards.

MattBlah
09-08-2018, 02:48 AM
Alec, you have to end the match with a finisher using R on Switch, R1 on PS4. You need magic meter to do this though, which builds over time and as you take damage. If you press A (or Square) you do a special move, which uses magic meter, so if you keep pressing this you won't have enough meter to do your finish.

At least that's what I understand so far. I hope it helps.

I'm enjoying the game for what it is. It's not going to end up main eventing at Evo, but it's a fun little distraction.

neojedi
09-08-2018, 09:29 AM
One more thing is that the character who is tagged out automatically builds meter. So if your R1 finisher isn't working, use R2 (not sure what Switch control is) to tag in your other character and then try it. If it whiffs, then wait a little while for the tagged out character's meter to rebuild and then repeat. Also note that a lot (all?) of characters have more than 1 finisher, the command list will show the additional ones. (down+R1, etc)

On the topic of Kukri, this game may ruin him for everyone. I used to run him in one of my main KOFXIV teams, but it's hard to justify spending several hours perfecting combos for pervy-boy.

Didn't realize the face buttons straight up do specials. Thanks guys.

DecepticonZero
09-08-2018, 11:38 AM
The face buttons are punch, kick, throw, and special. The special button has 5 special moves tied to it. Either press it by itself or press a U,D,L or R direction with it for a different special. When your magic meter is full, you can use a super. You can use a super by pressing the R button. When your life bar is blinking and you have full meter you can press down and R for a stronger special.

I returned mine this morning. I'll grab it when it's $20 on PS4.

That is exactly what this is. a novelty or a distraction.

i completely forgot i preordered this and after the update downloaded i'm super underwhelmed. It has some moments, but its basically an excuse for scantily clad fighting girls. its a less good doa with one button combo/ specials/ finishes.

Wish I had read reviews of this game and cancelled my preorder... Overall I am completely disappointed with this game. I was thinking it would have the gameplay of KOF XIV but only have female characters. Instead we get a watered down button masher with no depth to the gameplay along with lame special effects with every attack and a storyline that makes no sense. I figured the game would be a little over the top and cheesy coming from NISA but I didn't think it would be this bad. Worst money I've spent on a game in a long time.

I may still buy this game IF SNK releases some nice fappable DLC costumes.

However, at this point I haven’t really felt compelled to rub one out yet, especially not when I have DOA 5 LR.

SNK could learn a thing or two from Team Ninja.

Since SNK is clearly into cross-dressing and crossovers, they should go the CAPCOM route.

Add some Darkstalkers and Street Fighter characters.
