Arcana Heart, the fighting game series featuring an all female cast beating each other up for rather unclear reasons, has gained a bit of a cult following in the West. While the first title for the PlayStation 2 received a full, physical release, the English speaking world unfortunately missed out on the second title entirely, and the series debut on the PlayStation 3 was limited to a digital release in the States (although Europe got a snazzy physical special edition).
Because of this, many wondered if Arcana Heart 3’s enhanced edition, Arcana Heart 3: Love Max!!!!! (yes, that’s five exclamation points) would make it out of Japan. Well, fighting genre fanatics have to worry no longer–Aksys Games has announced that they will be bringing Love Max!!!!! westward this fall.
Love Max!!!!! has rebalanced characters and mechanics, as any good fighting game re-release would have, in addition to a brand new ‘hot springs’ storyline. There is also the addition of a few new modes, including a Trial Mode with challenges to complete.
Arcana Heat 3: Love Max!!!!! will be making it Stateside in Fall 2014 for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Aksys has confirmed that Love Max!!!!! will be getting physical editions for both system, but it’s still unknown if it’ll venture to Europe or other territories.
