Arcana Heart 3 - PS3
NCS Product Synopsis. Update: January 13, 2011 «©NCSX» From Examu's eX-BOARD hardware to Playstation 3, Arcana Heart 3 goes home this week. The storyline in AH3 takes place 2 months after the events in Arcana Heart 2 and dire events have been set in motion by an organization named the "Drexler Institution" which threatens the destruction of Japan. The fighting ginger named Aino Heart is back but she's not the focal point of the third Arcana Heart game. The lead heroine in Arcana Heart 3 is a blonde girl named Weiss who appears to be a humorless 14-year old student. She's really an operative working for Valkyria which is an arm of the Drexler Institute. The rest of the cast of the Arcana Hearts game also return such as Saki Tsuzura, Angelia Avallone, Kamui Tokinomiya, Maori Kasuga, and Mei-Fang. Each girl is accompanied by a unique "Arcana" which is a powerful being who supplements the girl's fighting skills with a repertoire of special attacks and powers. New to AH3 is the "Force Gauge" which allows for the use of a move called "Extend Force" which is a close cousin of the "Arcana Burst" move. The best news of all? Arc System handled the game conversion themselves from Examu kit to PS3. The home conversions of Arcana Heart 3 are based on v3.01 of the arcade game and includes a new Story Mode, a Training Mode, Online Network Play for up to 6 fighters, and two screen aspect modes (4:3 and 16:9).
