As for what was changed in the PC release of Million Arthur: Arcana Blood, the original game that released for arcades and PS4 in Japan featured a move from support character Elle who would dash out to grab the opposing character’s crotch. Against female characters she says something along the lines of “That’s what you get!” while against male characters she says “Nice chinchin!” (Nice penis!).
The “Nice chinchin!” part originated from the Jaku-San-Sei Million Arthur comic, when Elle asked the new Arthur about his gender. Since then it’s been a pretty well-known meme among fans of the series, and it certainly stood out when they added it as her support character move in Million Arthur: Arcana Blood.
However, while the PlayStation 4 and arcade version still remains unchanged in Japan, the PC version changed it so that Elle punches the opponent’s upper body and says the “That’s what you get!” line against both male and female characters. You can check out a clip here.
Million Arthur: Arcana Blood is now available worldwide on PC via Steam. The game is available in Japan for PlayStation 4 and arcades as well.
