Rumor: Arcana Heart 3 Shares The Love With Europe

By Spencer . December 8, 2010 . 6:32pm


If you’re in Europe and own BlazBlue you know pQube. The European publisher has been snapping up games with the help of Zen United. Arcana Heart 3 has only been announced for Japan, but trade publication MCV has the all gals fighting game on their release calendar for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.


Unofficial, but believable. PQube publishes most Arc System Works games, even niche titles like Castle of Shikigami III and Theresia. Since Arc System Works and Aksys have a tight relationship, I wonder if they’ll be the ones to release Arcana Heart 3 in North America.


A hearty handshake and tip of the hat to Sheentaku for sending us the tip!

    I’ve never played an Arcana Heart game before. This will be the entry to change that fact.

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    Arcana Heart 3? It looks cool! Ive been looking to broaden my horizons with the fighting genre, I guess this looks like the next step.

    (Speaking of Castle of Shikigami III, is that game just out of Print in the US? I was intrigued by it but cant find a single store selling it, it looked like an awesome RPG)

    • honorless

      Not an RPG. Worth owning if you like shooters, though.

    • PurpleDoom

      If you’re willing to order online, Amazon has new copies for somewhere around 10 bucks.

  • PrinceHeir

    please localize this Aksys. more 2D fighting games are always a welcome addition :)

    *still waiting for Guilty Gear 3 and a New The King of Fighters Dream Match

    • Loli Desu

      IIRC, GG3 is not for another gen and keep waiting for another dream match, it’s 2 games away…

  • Hiryuu

    Aksys. Waiting on you.

  • PurpleDoom

    Keeping my fingers crossed for a U.S. release.

  • JB2X

    This is by far my most favorite iteration of the series. It’s the smoothest flowing of them all. I usually end up playing that a few times at the arcade when I get a chance, along with Melty Blood Actress Again -Current Code- and DoDonPachi Resurrection.

    GODS I love my local arcade… SO MUCH!

  • Michael Schaub

    One step closer to a NA release. The AH community will be feeling hype.

  • Gabriel May

    Is it wrong for me to want the Arcana Heart 2 arcade stick just because it’s cute looking :D In comparison, the Arcana Heart 3 arcade stick is more hot-blooded, which isn’t a bad thing :D

  • krokounleashed

    That’s quite possible since Zen United (Publisher of BB in Europe) asked on their Facebook Site if we want AH3.

  • Ujn Hunter

    North American Xbox 360 version please. Thank you.

  • JustaGenericUser

    A US release would be awesome! But I wonder if anybody in the US will ask why 2 got skipped…
