Here’s a rundown on the game:


A big fight by a family of superheroes! A 2v2 tag-team battle action arena! Lemon or mayo for Karaage?

What is the end of the endless struggle between the families who have been divided into two sides with everyone having one firm choice… This is a 2v2 3D tag team battle action game that can be played online.


  • The tag team is divided into “attacker” and “support” roles, and must cooperate with each other to strategically carry out battles.
  • Attackers use melee weapons and fight opponents on the front lines to inflict damage.
  • In addition to the normal attack, the attacker can use two abilities that differ from character to character in order to corner the opponent and force them into a fold.
  • Supports use long-range weapons but cannot inflict damage on their opponents. However, by using a wide variety of skills, they can control the battle situation as they wish.
  • The support is the key to the game plan, sometimes protecting the attacker and sometimes paving the way for the attacker.
  • In this tag-team battle, it is difficult to win by one person’s strength alone. By cooperating and complementing each other, partners can enjoy exhilarating and strategic battles that cannot be achieved by a single player.
