Unlike Pepsi, Aksys Games knows what it means to take things to the MAX by announcing a North American release of Arcana Heart 3: LOVE MAX!!!!! for PS3 and Vita not in shame, but with pride. Nevermind that Amazon already spoiled the surprise as is becoming the norm with etailers these days.
Scheduled to hit our shores this fall (a suggested date of September 30th was leaked earlier), LOVE MAX!!!!! is developer Examu's official update to the original Arcana Heart 3 fighting game featuring rebalanced gameplay and system changes, new moves and modes, and a new "After Story" scenario which will surely take us to five-exclamation-mark levels of the MAX.
Like the original Arcana Heart 3, which Aksys Games also proudly localized for PSN digital download three years ago, LOVE MAX!!!!! features an all-female cast of 23 "excrutiatingly cute" brawlers who do battle with the help of spirits called Arcana to stop Japan from being sunk beneath the waves at the hands of a mysterious organization.
With 23 selectable Arcana to pair with this colorful cast of femme fatales, Arcana Heart covers a breadth of fighting styles (and personal tastes) to appeal to fighting game and anime fans alike, all in artistically adventurous 2D with original Japanese voice acting for a discerning audience unwilling to acccept 3D soulmates in mainstream 1080p. Aksys does confirm that LOVE MAX!!!!! will run at 60fps though.
And if anyone has a problem with your waifu, you can let your love bloom on the PSN battlefield through ranked online versus matches complete with spectator modes if you're the sort who prefers to watch.
