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)
