A Peek At Arcana Heart 3’s Detailed Player Cards


This movie starts out with Heart Aino introducing five more girls in Arcana Heart 3. In order, they are Petra, Elsa, Clarice, Eko, and Scharlachrot.


Heart also lists out modes available in the game – story, versus, score attack, training, network, and option. When you play online you get an extremely detailed card that keeps track of your matches, arcana type (after you pick a character you pick an arcana for a set of special moves), perfect matches, critical heart knockouts, and ratings for different characters.


One strange decision is it appears online mode doesn’t have double blind character selection. After player two picks Mei-Fang and her color, player one is still deciding between Akane and Kira.


Maybe now that Arcana Heart 3 is rumoured to be getting localized at least in one region, people that like the series can start paying attention to all the videos Arc System Works put out.


…wow, those animated borders really are something, aren’t they?
