EU Arcana Heart 3 boxed for PS3/360

Not a PSN-only release like in the US.

Colourful 2D fighting game Arcana Heart 3 will travel to Europe. And when it does, it will be as a boxed game for both PS3 and Xbox 360, Eurogamer can reveal.

Arcana Heart 3 was confirmed overnight as a PlayStation Network download release.

A spokesperson for Zen United (Ark System Works' European arm) told Eurogamer: "No confirmed date as yet - but we are handling it. The plan is to release on both PS3 and Xbox 360 as a boxed product."

Arcana Hearts 3 has an all female cast, each aligned with an Arcana or elemental that determines their special powers. The classic side-on presentation comes adorned with intricate, vivid, 2D hand-drawn sprites.

Arcana Hearts is a series made by developer Examu. The third instalment was published in Japan by Arc System Works of Guilty Gear and BlazBlue fame.
