Arcana Heart And Hello Kitty Join Forces In A 3DS Game

By Eugene . December 13, 2013 . 2:00pm


Oh man. This… This might destroy the world with cute guys. Developers Examu are collaborating with Sanrio – you probably know their most famous line of characters like Hello Kitty and My Melody – to put their Arcana Heart fighting game characters into a Hello Kitty game for the Nintendo 3DS. And that Hello Kitty game is called… Hello Kitty & Apron of Magic: Rhythm Cooking.



The Arcana Heart crossover characters are hidden in the game, but you can unlock them by standing in front of the fountain in Apron Town and pressing this secret code: L, R, (with the D-pad) left, right, down, up, A, and  B. Successfully putting in the code will unlock access to Arcana Heart characters Heart Aino, Lieselotte Achenbach, Saki Tsuzuru and Kamui Tokinomiya. Yes, they’ll bob their heads gently while cooking, and then eating, a dish they’ve prepared with you.

  • ‘Arcana Heart and Hello Kitty joins forces in a–WHAT!?’

  • Roberto

    i dont have words for this

  • Sentsuizan_93

    I first thought this would be a crossover fighting game…. ._.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      A Hello Kitty fighter?

      • Sentsuizan_93

        With a ridiculous amount of cuteness XD

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        10/10 would play…for 30 min

        • Slayven19

          Longer than I’d play it for.

      • LKArtillery

        I would play that in a heartbeat. Sanrio characters beating the stuffing out of each other P:

  • Matenshi

    I see Kuromi, so color me interested.

  • ReidHershel

    OMG, the Kawaiiness

  • ivanchu77

    …..what? seriously, what?

  • Rumor: There were generous amounts of hammering involved in the conception of this idea.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething


  • Demeanor

    Saki is so cute!!! Btw, isn’t it time for AH4 news yet? :P

  • Freakmasta

    The lyrics are so awful…they don’t even rhyme! And what would little girls know about Arcana Heart?!

    • You’d be surprised.

    • Hound

      My little sisters enjoy Arcana Heart much more than I would. They don’t understand any of the innuendo, but that’s because the characters aren’t having panty shots like Sakura in Street Fighter or half the characters in Skull Girls or doing off-color poses (outside of the robot maybe.)

      They really like the character choices because they’re tough but put out a familiar to life appeal. Girl A is dressed for school, girl B is dressed for swimming, girl C is dressed like Alice in Wonderland, girl D is ready to go roller skate and ditches school like a delinquent, girl E has a cat monster as her staff, girl F attacks with drawings, girl G is a dark mysterious girl that uses a doll to attack, one’s a puppy ninja, one’s a fox, one’s an angel, one rides a wolf and owns a bird, etc. And they all kick butt.
      Since there are no boyXgirl relationships and almost all of the character designs are tasteful and show nothing that wouldn’t be seen in public, the only thing seriously off-color about the game is the player’s imagination.

      • Theob Vious Choice

        Haha, that is a good explanation; it’s really just cute is all, I mean it can be made erotic and it can definitely seem to pander to it at times, but it’s a fun fighting game with colorful characters and that’s really all it has to be.
        But damn, this crossover is a cute overload.

  • Eder García

    WHAT… THE…

  • Suicunesol

    Is that Miku singing? That really puts the frosting on the cake.

  • It looks so cute and fun~! I want this so bad. >u<

  • Daverost

    Is this just a 3DS port of the “Hello Kitty and the Magical Apron” game Siliconera reported on last year? Sequel? It had Heart and Saki, too.


    Surely this is part of their master plan to raise funds for AH4, right?

  • What the…? Um, sorry. I love Arcana Heart, but I seriously think I’ll pass on this.

  • TalesOfBS

    Game science.

  • megaten666

    So, to unlock Arcana Heart characters, I need to input a secret code at the fountain. A SECRET code that is not a secret anymore. So what’s the secret then?

  • Istillduno

    Eh, the target audiences just seem so different, who the hell is this actually meant to be aimed at.

    It’s like putting DOA characters into another game aimed at little girls, just doesn’t quite make sense.

    • FlyingPony

      Perhaps for female gamer like our mod puchinri ?

  • Linhua

    … as if Heart was not adorable enough as it is… =//=;; … they obviously knew what components it took to create a Diabolical Mobile Moe Device that prints money… or steals it on the fly… =

  • I would totally buy the soundtrack to this game.

  • see if this stuff came to the US i woulda kept my DS…
