Examu's anime-styled fighter Arcana Heart 3 is getting a North American release, publisher Aksys Games has announced. While it was released on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Japan, it'll only be available to Americans as a PlayStation Network download.
The 2D fighter boasts a line-up of 23 characters, from a young girl who brings drawings to life to a demon nun, who can be paired with one of 23 "spirits" to augment their abilities. Single-player offerings come in the form of story, score attack and training modes. The online multiplayer side is built upon a system developed by BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger dev Arc System Works and packs goodies including lobbies, ranked matches and online replays.
Arcana Heart 3 is due to be released this spring. Aksys has yet to announce the price.
Nobody excited for anime. Sucks that it won't be released on the 360.
Oh no I'm not excited because it won't be on 360
An Aksys rep said on their forum that they will have something to say about the 360 version of AH3
