Examu to Crowdfund English PC Version of Arcana Heart 3 Love Max Six Stars!!!!!!

Independent Japanese developer Examu has announced a crowdfunding campaign to publish Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!!! on PC.

The new release for the crossover 2D fighting game will be localized in English, and if the Kickstarter for the game is successful, they’ll consider making a new character and making a “collected edition” follow up, including stories and characters from earlier games in the franchise,

The Kickstarter isn’t up yet, however you can sign up to be notified when it goes live hereArcana Heart 3 features a unique “Arcana” mechanic, allowing you to pick a spirit-like Arcana alongside your physical combatant. This Arcana will enhance and specialize your fighter, which combined with the “Homing” command, enables you to react quickly and strategically.

Arcana Heart 3 has been localized and published in the west in its “LOVE MAX!!!!!” version for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. The game’s later version, “LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!!!”, was released in Japanese arcades back in December of 2014. Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX SIX STARS!!!!!! brings with it a new character, Minori, as well as the new Blood Arcana type.

    Also, is this going to be released as a separate title, or as an update DLC for Love Max? Cause it does seem a little much to buy a whole new game just for some balance tweaks and a new character.

    They should just work on AH4 tbh

  • CRES

    This might be to help fund AH4. And possibly to gauge Western interest in the series.

    It’s pretty sad when a company has to crowdfund a specific platform version, are they really strapped for cash?

  • James Hewitson

    totally not worth it if you already have Love Max, Don’t waste your money mate.

    I’ve sick of crowd funding, go to a bank assholes.

    I think it’s also to see whether or not there’s still interest in Arcana Heart in the States. No use bringing it over if there’s not enough profit coming out of the investment (a sad, but hard pill we have to swallow).

  • Miguel Angel Opazo Arancibia

    Ok, ill fund it

  • Professor_Icepick

    I’d consider funding this. I was holding off on Love MAX on Steam because I was worried we’d see this version on there.

  • Mr0303

    I guess it’s good that they want to bring the game over, but I hope crowdfunding a localisation doesn’t become a trend.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    It’ll at least make our desire to cut out the censorship much easier to convey when it’s not a meme game which will be over loaded by the casual market.

  • Mr0303

    I don’t know about that. Crowdfunding doesn’t really give any control of these matters to the backers.

  • No_Good_Names_Ever

    Don’t they have comment sections for the funders of whatever is getting funded?

  • Mr0303

    They do, but they are free to ignore your comment after they get your money.
