imageAt GDC, Tenchu developer Acquire was meeting with publishers behind closed doors. One of the projects they were showing off was Alpha Arcanus.


Details have not been leaked, but we heard the game will be released for PlayStation 3 and its an action title with online play. Alpha Arcanus is still in development and planned as a PlayStation Network game.


Right now, the studio is also working on Akiba’s Trip (pictured), an original action/adventure game for PSP.

    GDC, so it being on the US PSN is high I suppose.

    Action game from Acquire with online play? Color me interested!
    Seems like I’ll definitely have to keep tabs on a title like this one.

  • HarryHodd

    Action/adventure I hope. I’ll buy pretty much any Acclaim made game on the PS3.

    Dangit I came in thinking the PS3 game was going to have that Akiba art style… :(

    Here’s some more info about Acquire’s upcoming games from GDC:

    I’m confused now.
    So Acquire is working on 3 console games? Alpha Arcanus, one unannounced PS3/360 action-RPG, and ANOTHER unannounced PS3/360/PC action game? Or is Alpha Arcanus the unannounced PS3/360/PC action game? But then why is it stated to be an “Online Action” game that’s implied to be PS3 only in one place, and just “Action” for 3 platforms in another? Doesn’t match up.

    • They are working on 4 console games, excluding handhelds.

      The three you mentioned, plus a Kinect party game.

      • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

        That’s a lot their hands. These small time Japanese devs are really taking it upon themselves. Ambitious…

    • HarryHodd

      Maybe because Arcanus is a PSN title.

  • damn it Acquire you promised me another Tenchu this isn’t Tenchu

  • Ok. This is interesting, I’ll bite.
