Arcana Heart 3: Love Max Heading To Akihabara Arcades Next Week

By Spencer . January 15, 2013 . 12:03am


Arcana Heart 3 went from arcades to consoles in 2011. Examu is bringing the gals fighting game back to arcades as Arcana Heart 3: Love Max. The game will be tested in Akihabara’s Hey! arcade on January 19 and January 20.


Arcana Heart 3: Love Max supports online play and profiles through Taito’s NESiCAxLive. This version will have system tweaks too, but Examu hasn’t said what those are. It appears there are VP, LP, and trophy meters next to a player profile. Perhaps, those are some kind of versus mode scoring system?

      I will give Arcana Hearts this, it does have a variety in it’s casts chest-sizes. So no, not ALL flat chests. Plenty of them, but there’s a pretty nice variety.

    if chaos code can make it can make it to consoles i’m pretty sure this can as well

    not even worried…

    • Considering the original AH3 made it to consoles and then stateside via PSN, you’re probably right.

      Only thing is I don’t know if the game really stood the test of time or not. AH1 and AH3 made the cut. AH2 didn’t (probably because of lag reasons). It often gets overshadowed on PSN as well as a fighting game so timing of its release would be wise if it does make a CS release stateside.

      But we’ll talk about that in 18 months if that’s going to be a thing or not.

  • good. I just need more ara ara~ maa maa~ <3

  • I love the Arcana Heart series.I hope this Love Max version makes it out of Japan somehow.

    I like all the blue and I hope that this will lead to good character viability once again
