AquaPazza Making Its Way To North America

AquaPazza Making Its Way To North America


Yesterday, ATLUS made the announcement that it would be bringing the 2D fighting title, AquaPazza, to North America. AquaPazza features characters from AquaPlus’ previous titles such as Tears to Tiara, ToHeart, and Utawarerumomo. There will be 13 characters along with 13 partners to choose from as well as a mystery character.

Those who like having the option of being able to use the original Japanese voice track will be pleased to know that ATLUS will be leaving it within the game untouched. The North American version will also contain the content such as new characters and improvements that are available from the current Japanese arcade spec (version 2.01). Other features included are listed below:

  • Eclectic cast of characters: The combatants in AquaPazza are a diverse bunch – from the studious bookworm Manaka who — no kidding — attacks with a bookshelf to the lance-wielding, shield-carrying Sasara.
  • Partner system: Players select from one of the thirteen partners to accompany them. Partners assist players as one of three classes with one of four different actions. Players get rewarded for aggressive play styles and the partners add an additional skill element to help break defensive play.
  • Tournament-level competition: Developed by Examu and Aquaplus, AquaPazza has a strong backbone of fighting game mechanics with twitch response times and super attacks.
  • Variety of gameplay modes: Each character has a storyline of their own, which unlocks the “another story” mode and an alternate ending. There’s also a time-attack mode, training mode, and a gallery mode.
  • Online play: Take to the internet to challenge players in ranked, unranked, and friends-only matches.

AquaPazza will be exclusive to the PS3 and will retail at $29.99 when it is released later this year. Stay tuned as we keep you up to date on more AquaPazza news.
