Examu has a new version of Arcana Heart 3 in development and its coming to arcades this winter. Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!! is rebalanced plus has new techniques and systems added to the game. Want to learn how to play Arcana Heart 3? There’s a tutorial mode now designed for solo play.


Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!! keeps track of your win/loss record and rank through NESiCAxLive. The game also supports widescreen displays with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

    I liked arcana heart 3 but I was BAD. I’m usually bad at 2-D fighters but that had to be a new level of bad. I can’t remember if AH3 had a tutorial mode mode but i welcome all the help lol.

    • The same. I am terrible at most fighting games with deep mechanics (give me a Naturo fighting game any time). No, AH3 didn’t have a tutorial mode, just a practice mode. I might have to get this; looks awesome!

    • Demeanor

      I was an ABSOLUTE beginner at not only AH3, but fighting games in general, I basically did not know what they meant AT ALL.
      I fell in love with AH3 and played it A LOT (despite my endless game queues) while looking up the theory on the internet, and after a lot of practice and online rapes to my chars I got the hang of it, and have an about 50% win rate now.
      So long story short: if you like the game you can definitely improve if you play it smart and keep at it, it’s such a great satisfaction!
      (this sparked my interest for other fighting series too btw)

  • Linhua

    … wow… o.o … I wonder just how much has changed with this…

    … no matter… Heart’s in it and so is my money.

  • ivanchu77

    I rather have a arcana heart 4 honestly but this is still great news! i hope it gets localized too like the vanilla version

    The balance in the vanilla version was pretty good already, so i´m kinda curious about the rebalances of this version

    The inclusión of a tutorial mode is great , but i don´t like the fact that the game doesn´t have any new characters

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Once again, who can said no to my favorite moe moe fighting game.^_^

  • Zonic505

    I seriously wish the PSN version would go on sale. I played it and it seemed fun enough, but $30 is outside my price range for download only games.

    In any case, rather neat to see them made another version of this after some time. Hopefully, there’ll be some way the US will get the update.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Teach me Weiss sensei!

  • Yuriangels

    Ahhhhh my girls, this moe  delicious.

  • ThatAzure

    It’d make me happy if this somehow gets ported to PSVita xD!~ I love playing fighting games on handhelds for some reason.

  • Luna Kazemaru

    AH3 is going to be at gods garden so yeah saw this coming lol.

    And lol SRK comments.

    • Just Tim

      Looks like the SRK crowd doesn’t have the balls to play this game.

      Meanwhile, I do have the balls to main Roll in Cross Generation of Heroes, to the point I beat a Karas on a one-on-one for the win!

      • Luna Kazemaru

        People on SRK always have to come up with crappy reasons not to play a game lol. Apparently I should have been put in Jail for streaming/playing this game let alone should have met Chris Hanson.

        Oh SRK stay the joke that you are.

        • Just Tim

          They want that MAHVEL Money shot, BAYBEE!! xD  That, or they’re closet necros for Hsien-ko.

    • SolidusSnake

      “How could anyone play this crap? It’s just a bunch of GIRLZ. Where are Wolverine and Cable? I can’t play a fighter unless it has Cable’s manly body to fa– I mean beam spam with. Girls are gross.” — some US fighting fan

      • Luna Kazemaru

         Haha that was good.

  • drproton


  • Arizato

    Parace L’Sia as a playable character, please!

  • SupaPhly

    speaking of AH3, is it even humanly possible to get that “Atatatatatatata” Trophy without turbo buttons?

    • Astrotrain

      Yes, it is possible, just remember to press all five buttons simultaneously and as fast as you can.

    • Demeanor

      I had to buy a turbo controller AND enlist the help of a grown man… XD

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    I want my Arcana Heart 4, but for the hell of it, fine, Examu. Nerf Elsa in all angles then we’ll talk.
    Also, lolSRK. They shoot down this game but like Skullgirls. Everyone in there should go die in a fire.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      Lol they hate skullgirls to

      • z_merquise

        So basically, they hate and whine on everything.

  • SLick123456789111

    Could not stop getting my a** handed to me & my Kamui & Kira on a weekly in the first AH3 , but I might still check this out since SkullGirls has slowed down in terms of . . . everything.
    Just as long as AH3LM doesn’t cost $30.
    $15 is a reasonable price imo.

  • Neppygear

    I must say, I really do like the changed aesthetic. I really would like it if this were released as a patch or DLC or something, since it’d give me a nice excuse to dig up my copy of AH3.
