Because of the PSN crash interfering with the success of the first one, that's even more reason to think this would be successful, because the "original" third one wasn't successful to the point that this would be upsetting - it would be welcome, if anything. People can get on this one with the early hype and not be concerned with months of no online and new games coming out causing interest loss. Not to mention the original never had a Vita version.


I dunno if welcome considering most people in the fighting scene aren't even aware of Arcana Heart 3.

Well it depends on the timing, if Aksys can get this localized next month, it could be the center of attention,
but May or later, Ultra SFIV and others are going to be dominating the genre charts of hype and anticipation,
those things most people are going to save for this summer.

but still, from a business standpoint, Love Max won't make Aksys decent sales like Arcana Heart 4 would.

Even if there wasn't the PSN crash, Arcana Heart 3 still has a lot of conservative ignorance going against it.
It's not a western trend like My Little Pony Fighting is Magic is to even veteran fighting fans.

Even despite having tons of greater qualities than Skullgirls, the way its marketing and stuff, it's just too niche to compete in the western market. Especially with momentum building for upcoming fighting games,
and Love Max not nearly adding as much as Ultra is. And it doesn't fill the request of fans wanting NEW characters and NEW arcana.

but yea it is very risky. I would rather Aksys hold out for a Arcana Heart 4,
than investing in Love Max, Love Max bombing in the west, then they write off the series entirely,
no matter how epic and expanded AH4 is. So then people end up missing out on the game that matters more (Arcana Heart 4)

That's it, nutshell time. All Arc Sys needs to do is to release this game as a digital game and/or make the patch for the vanilla game. That's all.

@affinity
See, you keep mentioning AH4, but you seem to be forgetting a crucial detail about it: It doesn't exist. There's no indication one way or the other it even ever will.

Why should a localization base their business on a hypothetical? It's not like Capcom skipping MH4 since they knew MH4G was on the way. What if there is never another game in the series? They should skip this one because fans might want something more that might not come out for years, if at all?

That's silly.

@Leon
It's been said already that this is too much of an update for that to be realistic, and if Japan didn't do it, Aksys sure doesn't have the power to.

Then just a regular DD. Hopefully the price is just about right if Arc Sys actually does localize it.

Oh come on, I know their DLC prices is bad but really? Their DD prices are also bad?

No, I'm saying you keep saying the name of the wrong company. :lol: This is the fourth time I've corrected you in this thread alone.

Full name is Arc System Works and I'm use to calling them by Arc Sys so doesn't really matter. ;)

... Leon, Arc System Works and Aksys have nothing to do with each other except Aksys happens to localize some ArcSys games. Arcana Heart has nothing to do with ArcSys.

ASW helped port Arcana Heart 3 (also the reason it has the best netcode, rivals GGPO.) Examu owns Arcana Heart. Aksys localized Arcana Heart 3 (Atlus localized Arcana Heart 1).

Yeah, ArcSys did the console ports for AH3 and AH3LM. And they also have a western publishing branch, so they could very well publish LM, too. (I'd say it would more likely be Aksys, though.)

Localization has been leaked for this by Amazon - keep fingers crossed!

Considering this happened before with BlazBlue Chronophantasma and Xblaze, it's likely legit.
I just hope that date is a placeholder; four months would be quite a wait.

Maybe they want to let the communities for BlazBlue die down a little, else a lot of people will just stay there?
