Aksys picked Valentine’s Day as the date to officially announce Arcana Heart 3 for North America. The girls fighting game has 23 characters and 23 arcana, cards that grant special attacks, to mix and match. Eko, a girl who can breathes life into her drawings, the mysterious Schalachrot, and Weiss, the main character in Arcana Heart 3, are the three newcomers.
While Arcana Heart 3 was a multiplatform release in Japan, Aksys is only releasing the title for PlayStation 3. More specifically, as a PlayStation Network download. Like Battle Fantasia before it, Arcana Heart 3 is a full game with all of the single player stories, training mode, and online play. A digital copy of Arcana Heart 3 will cost $29.99 when it debuts in North America.
Update: While an earlier press release indicated the price for Arcana Heart 3 will be $29.99, an Aksys representative explained this price is not final. The price point is TBD. Apologies for the confusion.
