Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Gets A Beefy Balance Update In Arcades

By Eugene . October 7, 2013 . 1:20pm

Arcade female fighter Arcana Heart 3 Love Max has just received a meaty update, rebalancing almost every character, arcana abilities and more.


Beyond that, though, is the addition of a new Time Attack mode—which has players racing not just health bars but also the clock. Almost all stages in the game also have new background music, with tweaks or changes to the old versions to give some freshness to the now three-year-old title.


If you’re somehow playing the arcade version and want to take a look at the full list of character tweaks, balances and changes, you can check out 4Gamer’s exhaustive breakdown here.


Arcana Heart 3 started out as an arcade game, headed to consoles in 2011 and then made its way back after several tweaks and changes to the arcade in 2013 as Love Max.

    I want this update for my PSN version :( I love this game’s fighting system. Its the true persona fighter, with the different type of arcanas being the persona.

      do people still play it on us psn? i never got this but thought of it b/c of the current promotions

  • I so wish this version would get localized.

  • Freakmasta

    I need that update! Scharlacrott + plant arcana need their dmg boost!


    I’m surprised no one’s mentioned that there will be a CS release of LM. It was mentioned a couple of weeks back.

      Huh. Maybe this revamped version is what’s prompted the release then, so console owners get the “optimal” version right from the get-go?

      Woah Love Max confirmed for consoles??!??! Zurui Siliconera, why didn’t you tell us? XD
      Anyone know if it’s been confirmed for US and EU as well, and how will this play out? DLC download or a re-release?

      • I sent them word here a couple weeks back.

        Guess they just don’t check their email…oh well.

  • Demeanor

    This reminds me, I still need to get Saki’s RP from 8 to 10 to platinum the game XD

  • KuroNathan

    Oh man I want I really wished this came over to the states, even as a PSN game

  • Keko

    Man, I love this game. Such an underrated fighting game…it needs more LOVE

  • Hound

    They didn’t change the Holy Arcana? O.o
    I guess easy infinites will continue to be possible.
