« Arcana Heart 3 Announced for European Release »

If you live in Europe and love you some Arcana Heart, I have good news for you: UK-based publisher Zen United has confirmed that Arcana Heart 3 is headed to Europe on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The news comes from Neo Empire's interview with Zen United Marketing Manager Geraint Evans, where he talks his love for BlazBlue and, of course, about bringing Arcana Heart 3 to Europe.

We were able to confirm the news with Zen United but were told there's currently no ETA on just when it's expected to ship. For more info on the announcement, head on over to Neo Empire's interview.

i don't like the presentation in this game, but good for people who wanna play this.

Nice! Hope it'll come out quickly and at a price like BBCS's (40€).

I would really like to see this come to the US. Not typically my kinda fighter but I have been intrigued by it since its arcade release.

is a US release all that necessary? wtf?
i buy US region games all the time and i'm EU.

PS3 is region free anyway, what about xbox?

PS3 is region free but 360 it's the game devs choice. I think ESRB would have a field day with the suggestive images in the game.

I'm glad, and hope it comes stateside. I imported the JP verison on a whim with some friends. I've hated on AH since day one mainly cause of it's appearance. But once I actually got it and learned the system, it became one of my more favored games already. Shit's too fun when you know what's up.

The stigma and appearance kind of just fades away as you really begin to play it. I'd still not want non-fighting friends I know to know I play it, but yeah :D

Honestly one of the most complicated and rewarding fighting games on the market right now. I really hope they bring it to the US; especially considering it's an arcade perfect port. I could really use more variety in fighting games than what is being provided at the moment.

I have a ps3, so I could import, but the only people that will be able to play are people in Japan and Europe which would probably result in bad connection and I'm not sure how many other people will import. I have more of a chance of find other players to play if it comes to the US.

This is good news, even if there's no solid date yet. Hopefully a US release follows soon after, though If not I suppose I could just import. Either way I'll get to play in English.

I'm with KRSJIN, when I first saw the original Arcana Heart, I hated it. But the 3rd game I think really nailed it and improved upon alot, after the lackluster first game and the horrendous port the 2nd game received.

A European release is all we need, really. If you're a PlayStation 3 owner, that is. Xbox 360 owners like myself are still screwed. At least it's better than nothing.

When I saw this article go up on Neo Empire, I got kinda worried that maybe Aksys wouldn't pick it up for U.S. release seeing as they have a UK office and would have to release it in one region without having the rights to it in another region, which might make them pass it over completely.

Then I remembered: this is Aksys. There are just too many crappy Japanese PSP titles for them to localize before they even so much as look at Arcana Heart 3, and I'm sure they'd much rather try to build on their success in localizing BlazBlue than attempt to possibly split their own userbase.
