Back in January
, we announced that Arcana Heart 3
would be released in Europe this year, despite being available in arcades since 2009, and being released in Japan in January 2010. Zen United, the European publisher for the game, has now confirmed that the game will be released in June.Arcana Heart 3
is a 2D fighting game featuring an all-girl roster. The game will include 23 girls and 23 ‘Arcana’ (special elemental powers) that can be paired together for over 500 different character combinations.
Due to popular demand, a Limited Edition version of the game has been announced for the European market. This will include:
• The original, 144 page Japanese Arcana Heart 3 artbook containing production sketches and concept art.
• Arcana Heart 3 Official Soundtrack exclusive to this Limited Edition set.
• 12 character guide cards, featuring artwork and command listings for Arcana Heart’s extensive character and Arcana roster.
• All presented in a beautiful, iconic box.
According to the press release, Arcana Heart 3
is due to be released in Europe on June 30th, although this is actually a Thursday. Most retailers are listing the title for June 24th instead, so expect the game to release around this time.
