Aksys is bringing Arcana Heart 3 over, here's a trailer


Fancy some 2D fighters that don't feature characters from filthy gaijin comic books or old man Guile? Aksys has a new option for you. The folks behind 999 and Record of Agarest War have just announced that they're handling the North American release of Arcana Heart 3, the most moe fighter this side of Bridget's panties.

Twenty-three girls from all shades of the fetish spectrum (schoolgirl swordswomen, nuns, lolis floating in a ball of jello, girls wearing Chun-li hair buns, and magical girls, even)  beat the snot out of each other this spring on the PlayStation Network.

Yeah, this one's a PS3 download exclusive, like Agarest War was when it was first announced. The game is a multiplatform title in Japan, though, so there's always a chance for that to change, and perhaps even a disc release as some of you folks prefer.

Arcana Heart 3 will, as ever, feature Arcana Cards that can modify your chosen character's fighting style. There'll be a story mode, training mode, and score attack modes, in addition to the now-customary online multiplayer.

No word on price point yet, but we do have a trailer below and a buttload of screenshots in the gallery. Check 'em out!
