Arcana Heart Fans, Do You Want That Hello Kitty Rhythm Game With Saki In It?

By Spencer . April 18, 2014 . 2:35am

imagepQube looks like they are gauging initial interest in a title we covered, Hello Kitty & Apron of Magic: Rhythm Cooking. The Nintendo 3DS game features Hello Kitty and other Sanrio characters plus some of the fighters from the Arcana Heart series. Why the cameos? Because Examu developed this game.


Just to be clear this isn’t a fighting game. It’s a rhythm game.


Geraint Evans, Head of Marketing at pQube, says this is a game he has been looking forward to playing, which is why he’s gauging interest in the title.


"I really like the look of Hello Kitty and the Magic Apron. Cute, pink, moe and it has Arcana Heart characters in it  – which pretty much seals it for me.  Last Christmas I was watching the videos you posted of Saki frying up steak and onions  – and it’s been in the back of my mind ever since. What I personally like and what people want to buy are often quite different – though I’ve always been open to hearing what our fans would like to see brought over," replied Evans.

    I sure want to. But it probably will be an uphill battle to localize it.

    • I dunno about that. It’s a Rhythm game. Even if there is a story mode – which I highly doubt – it’s a Hello Kitty title. It’s not like the prose will be college-level stuff ;)

      …but how great would it be to see Hello Kitty characters perform Hamlet or something? Hmmm. lol.

      This would probably be an easy localization project, if I had to guess.

    It doesn’t seem like that bad of a choice, actually. Hello Kitty’s still popular enough, right? I think? Could be potential there for a safe bet, maybe. If they can get the licence, of course.

    Sounds like a April fool title but that’s 2 weeks before

  • ForteWily

    Sure, why not… at this point, I can’t see the harm in doing that.

    girls will enjoy this game so why not?

    They should put Hello Kitty as a playable character in the next arcana heart, she would be a perfect training dummy

    So rhythm cooking games are a thing now?

  • leingod
