One of the main additions in Arcana Heart 3: Love Max is the After Story, a new storyline written by Toru Sakurai. A TV program filmed at a a hot springs resort shows a pretty stone, which is the reason all of the Arcana Heart girls are gathering there. This set up was really created so Examu could add in events where players can rub steam away away to get a better look at event scenes.
Arcana Heart 3: Love Max also has new gameplay modes like Survival Score Attack where you gain a little bit of life back after each fight and keep battling for points until you get knocked out. Time Attack mode and Trials, challenges in matches with unlockable bronze, silver, and gold medals are also new.
Arcana Heart 3: Love Max is slated for release on May 29 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
