Arcana Heart 3 Is Out On PSN Today!

Arcana Heart 3 is now out on PSN! Hit the jump for the full press release.

TORRANCE, Calif. – April 19, 2011 – Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, is proud to announce the release of fighting game Arcana Heart 3 on the PlayStation®Network today. Arcana Heart 3 combines fast-paced aerial action with a unique cast for an extraordinary fighting experience never before seen in North America!

Chaos and disorder are threatening to rip apart the very fabric of Japanese society as planar rifts appear throughout the country. It is suspected that the Drexler Institute, the instigator of the Great War many years ago and creator of the Divine Celestial Weapon, is somehow involved.

In the midst of this confusion, a mysterious rumor arises, claiming the existence of wish-granting “Celestial Stones” within the chaotic planar rifts. As a result of these rumors, a number of individuals have converged on Japan in the hopes of obtaining one of these fabled stones – either to seal them away or to see for themselves if the rumor is true. Each person has their own reasons for seeking these rare and valuable stones, and they won’t let anyone stand in their way, be they foe…or friend.

    AH3 is NO MVC2. It’s a whole different monstrosity.

    I’d still love to see a “Marvel Vs Aksys” in the future. Both of these franchises have WAY TOO MANY cool characters to not do it.

    you can buy the European disc release version for cheaper than PSN version look for zavvi dot com, they got the normal edition for 17 euros, which translates roughly to around 24-28 dollars and free shipping.

    I think things should be worked out concerning an U.S. release on the Xbox. Why hurt the consumer? I wanna also tell MS to stop being pricks about the limmited sizes of their arcade games. I don’t care if its disk or download ARCANA HEART 3 on XBOX 360 IN THE U.S.

    <:( pleasze?
