This afternoon I was now taking some time to check out the Japanese Nintendo Direct Mini aired yesterday because let’s be fair, the Japanese people are more fun. About halfway through it, a thing jumped into my eyes: the Western trailer showcased for SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy is completely different by the one revealed in the North American and European broadcasts.
The speaker immediately sets the tone of this Japanese trailer by mentioning that this game is really a “gathering of SNK’so sexy and cute heroines. ” In English, “hot and cute” turns into “fan-favorite. ”
All the way through the preview, the heroines showcased at the Japanese model wear much sexier outfits compared to the ones contained from the English one, on the point that the tone of the 2 movies is nothing alike.
It’s worth mentioning, however, that the pictures of this English version of the game published by NIS America (which will release the game at the west) via press release do comprise the hot outfits. It seems that we aren’t looking at real cuts or change to the game as much as a different approach to promote the game to the western marketplace in contrast to the Western market.
In addition, we don’t understand whether the decision to present such a different trailer came from Nintendo, NIS America, or even SNK itself. We contacted NIS America looking for a clarification on those points, and we’ll let you know whether we hear.
At the meanwhile, you can have a look at the 2 variants of the trailer below. Simply play with them both at precisely the identical time to find the level of the changes.
SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy will launch on Nintendo Switch and PS4 in summer 2018.
