Get the details below.
About the Game
Million Arthur: Arcana Blood is a 2D fighting game first released for arcades in November 2017. Popular characters from the Million Arthur series like Arthur Kenjutsu no Shiro and Thief Arthur, as well as Lise from Seiken Densetsu 3 and more appear in 2D pixels graphics and participate in flashy battles.
Development is handled by Arcana Team, which developed the Arcana Heart series and Nitroplus Blasterz. Fighting game fans can of course enjoy it as a pure fighting game, but there is also a story supervised by Kazuma Kamachi, as well as familiar background music and productions implemented in various places. Additionally, there are other elements that only appear in this game, including the theme song “Die or Dice?” sung by Kotoko, theme background music for Nitou Arthur and Iai Arthur composed by Yoko Shimomura, and more.
Three New Characters
In addition to the 10 playable characters from the arcade version, the PlayStation 4 version of Million Arthur: Arcana Blood adds three new playable characters.
Joining the fray are Yamaneko Arthur (voiced by Ayana Taketatsu) from Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur, Other World-Style Koume Saiyama (voiced by Aoi Yuuki) from Lord of Vermillion IV, and Other-World Style Iori Yagami from The King of Fighters XIV.
Additionally, on August 28, the arcade version will add support knight Other World-Style Akira Oono from the anime High Score Girl. She will also be implemented in the PlayStation 4 version for a total of 13 playable characters and 31 support knights. Of course, every character, including Iai Arthur (voiced by Sumire Uesaka) and Thief Arthur (voiced by Ayane Sakura), will be voiced by a cast of wonderful actors.
New Story Mode, Online Battles, and More
In addition to the “Story Mode” implemented in the arcade version, the PlayStation 4 version of Million Arthur: Arcana Blood also has a new story mode called “Episode of Arcana Blood,” which leads to the true ending.
As for online battles, the game features both “Online Ranked Matches,” where players can fight against other players close in ability, as well as “Room Matches,” where up to six players can gather to fight and spectate.
There are also various other game modes, including a “Training Mode” where you can practice for various situations, link together combos and support knights, and so on; a “Gallery Mode” where you can collect character illustrations; and more.
Million Arthur: Arcana Blood is due out for PlayStation 4 on November 29 in Japan.
