Aksys Announces Arcana Heart 3
If Brad dreams it, a weeabu fighting game full of scantily clad little girls will come. It will come, Brad. It will most definitely come. Arcana Heart 3 is making it’s way to the North American PlayStation Network this spring and we’ve got a whole bunch of screens to show it off. But first, a trailer:
The storyline is based on different characters searching for wish-granting “Celestial Stones” within chaotic planar rifts. 3 more characters have been added to Arcana Heart mix, making for a total of 23 playable fighters. There are also 23 different “Unique Arcana Types”, which are spirits that modify your characters fighting style… I think.
The game promises to be extremely technical, but it features a “Simple Mode” control scheme designed with noobs in mind.
The game’s online multiplayer system was developed by Arc System Works, creators of BlazBlue, which, I can tell you from first hand experience, has outstanding netcode. In addition to online lobbies and ranked matches, Arcana Heart 3 also includes a comprehensive ranking system and online replays. As per usual with Aksys games, the art is off the hook. I’m sure it’ll look even better in action. It’ll be out sometime this spring; stay tuned for more info.
