Development and Shipping Status

Posted by EXAMU Inc. (Creator)


Hello Everyone,

We apologize for the lag since our last update. Here is a rundown of where we are at now. 

Pistrix and Beta Version 

The new character Pistrix was planned to be added this fall, however development has gotten behind schedule. We are on track to have the beta version up on Steam before the end of the year, so please look forward! Once we have definite schedules for both of these, we will have another announcement here on the updates. 

Pistrix Progress 

We are thankful to Shiori Izawa for doing the voicing for Pistrix. Below is a quick video with Shiori Izawa’s super cute voice during Pistrix’s victory celebration.

*All work is under development.

Reward Delivery

If there is anyone who has not yet received their rewards, please contact us through the Kickstarter messaging system. We will continue to send out rewards for those of you who have not filled out your surveys or have not given us your address until February 2019.  

If for some reason you were not able to pick up your rewards and a resend is necessary, please be aware that a resend fee will be charged before the reshipping. Rewards will now be sent from Japan, so the shipping fee may be higher than that of your original order.  

We apologize for the development delay. All of us here are working hard so you can enjoy the game as soon as possible. Your continued support is greatly appreciated!










Reward Shipping Report

Posted by EXAMU Inc. (Creator)


Dear Backers, 

We understand it has been a long wait for the physical rewards to go out, and would like to apologize and thank you for your patience. Physical rewards will soon be on their way, so here is the current progress. 

Reward merchandise is at the fulfillment center 

All merchandise has been sent from our office and has arrived at the fulfillment center. (While we had originally planned to use an overseas fulfillment company, we ended up going with a domestic shipper after some issues arose.) 

Currently, the pick and pack work is underway. We are experiencing a slight delay with the Obon holiday here in Japan, but we expect shipping to begin on the 27th. 

Postal tracking information 

Once shipping begins from the fulfillment center, a tracking number and information link for your delivery will be sent to your registered email address. From the link you will be able to check the status of your delivery. Below are the email details: 


Subject line English: 【Dispatch notice for your order】
Subject line Japanese: 【出庫のご連絡 オープンロジ】 

*Please note that tracking information will be updated depending on the tracking system, so there may be some delay with data uploading. 

Finalizing Addresses 

There are still a couple of days to get in address changes yet, so if you need a change in your address, we will try and get your address updated posthaste. If you had previously left out information or made a mistake, and we do not get your updated information by August 24th, it will take extra time to have your rewards delivered to you. 

For those of whom we have not received any address information or if you are late in getting back to us with your information, you can contact us by February of 2019 and we will make sure your rewards get sent to you. Please be aware that in this circumstance, there may be additional charges for storage and/or shipping. 

We again apologize for all the delays and hope we can count on your continued support.

Shipping Delay Apology & Dark Heart Progress

Posted by EXAMU Inc. (Creator)


Dear Backers, 

Rewards were previously scheduled to go out at the end of June, however a problem with the barcoding of items has arisen which will delay shipping. We are already taking care of the problem and are now looking to begin shipping in mid-August for backers both here in Japan and internationally. Once we have made further progress concerning shipping we will notify everyone through the updates. 

Reward production has been completed so we just need time for final prep and delivery. We deeply apologize for the distress these delays have caused.

Dark Heart Progress Report

We would like to announce that the in-game character art for Dark Heart is now complete.

Hiroyuki Mano, who is also in charge of the pixel art, did the drawing for Dark Heart’s visual.  

We again offer our apologies for the rounds of delays that have pushed back delivery. All of us are doing our best to get your rewards to you as soon as possible, and we ask for your continued support. Thank you very much.










Physical Reward Shipping & Pistrix Progress Report

Posted by EXAMU Inc. (Creator)


Dear Backers,

Physical reward shipping for international backers is about to begin. We are planning to ship the rewards to the warehouse in the US by the end of this month. This will also be the last week to change addresses, so please see below for details. Rewards are almost on the way and we ask for your cooperation as we gear up for delivery.

Address Finalization

Shipping addresses will be locked down on June 29th (Friday) at 10:00PM JST (9:00AM EDT). If you need to change your address, please go to your Backerkit survey and make any necessary changes by this time.

If you have lost your survey link, you can request a new one HERE , then enter your email address that you have registered with Kickstarter and hit "Get My Survey".

We would like to once again apologize for the delay and as always thank you for your continued support and kind patience.

Pistrix Progress Report

We are proud to present Pistrix’s character art that will be featured in the story mode.

Both Pistrix’s character art and sprites are the work of Mr. Hiroyuki Mano.

We are continuing to work on Dark Heart as well, and we hope to be able to report progress on her soon.

Again we would like to offer our apologies for all the delays. All of our staff members are working as hard as they can to make sure everyone will be able to enjoy the game as soon as possible. Until then we thank you once again for your continued support.

For backers living in Japan

The rewards for international backers are set to be shipped out at the end of this month but due to a deficiency in our item inventory meant to supply the rewards for Japan based backers, shipping of rewards bound for Japan will suffer a slight delay.

We have commenced production of additional items and we are expecting shipping for Japan bound rewards to commence mid-July.

We would like to offer backers our sincere apologies for these additional delays.



海外分については、今月末に発送を予定しておりますが、 国内発送分のいくつかの商品について、不足分が見つかり、現在、追加の生産を行っております。

そのため、国内の発送については少々遅れがでてしまい、現在のところ7月半ばからの発送を予定しております。 たびたび発送が遅れてしまい、大変申し訳ございません。


発送先住所の確定日につきまして 2018年6月29日金曜日 日本時間 22時に住所を確定させ、それ以降の変更ができなくなります。 引越しなどで住所が変わった方は再度住所の確認を期限内にお願い致します。

サーベイのリンクを失くされましたら、下記リンクをクリックし、「Kickstarter E-mail」 と記載されている記入欄にキックスターターで登録したメールアドレスを記入し、 「Get My Survey」ボタンをクリックしてください。サーベイが再発行されます。






Reward Shipping Delay Apology & β Version / Paracelsia Update

Posted by EXAMU Inc. (Creator)

Dear Backers,

We have finally solved our DVD problem that was holding up rewards shipping and have a target set to begin delivery at the end of June. 

We are sorry for the both the shipping delay and for the lack of an update concerning the delay. We understand the trouble it has caused and give our deepest apologies.

All the rewards are ready and preparations are under way for their safe delivery to you. We cannot thank you enough for your continued support and patience. 

16:9 Mode & β Version Release 

As stated in our last update, the battle screen will be only use the existing 16:9 aspect ratio from “Arcana Heart 3 LOVEMAX SIXSTARS!!!!!!” for the first β version.

For those of you who received a Steam key as a Kickstarter reward, you will see the “Arcana Heart 3 LOVEMAX SIXSTARS!!!!!! Crowdfunding Edition” appear in your Steam library within the coming days. Please give it a download and have fun playing in 16:9 mode!

Please understand that this β version will be an upload test. Further updates will include the new playable character, Pistrix and new Arcana, Paracelsia.

Dev BBS 

The Dev BBS will open with the first β version update after the original launch. We are still getting it ready, but are looking forward to your input! 

We are planning to have the Dev BBS on Discord. 

Paracelsia the Arcana of Life

With the past focus on Pistrix, we haven’t spent much time on the new Arcana, Paracelsia, so we would like to show a new video with her in action. 

With Extend Force, Paracelsia becomes a playable character with which you can use to attack your opponent. We know many a player had many a trial facing Paracelsia, but this time she is on your side to help you dish out the punishment.

We are working as hard as we can to get your rewards and the β version out to you so you can enjoy them as soon as possible! Thank you again for your support!






前回のアップデートでお知らせした通り、最初のβ版については既存の「Arcana Heart 3 LOVEMAX SIXSTARS!!!!!! 」のバトル画面を16:9にしただけのものになります。  

キックスターターより入手したkeyをSteamに登録した方でしたら、近日中にSteamのライブラリの中に「Arcana Heart 3 LOVEMAX SIXSTARS!!!!!! Crowdfunding Edition」が現れてダウンロードが可能になりますので、ぜひダウンロードして16:9モードを体感してみてください。  

ただ、今回のβ版公開はアップロードテストのようなものだと思ってください。 今後、アップロードを行い、新プレイアブルキャラクター「ピストリクス」や、新アルカナ「パラセルシア」なども追加していきます。
