Atlus has been drinking the crazy water and is publishing the loony 2D fighter Aquapazza: Aquaplus Dream Match, as we recently reported. The previous "Holiday 2013" release window has now been narrowed down to November 19.
The fighter is a little like Atlus' own Persona 4: Arena, as it features an amalgam of 13 playable characters and partners from assorted Japanese RPGs and visual novels, like Tears to Tiara. It also boasts genre staples: online multiplayer, character-specific storylines, training modes, and so on.
Aquapazza is coming as both a retail and downloadable PS3 release for $30. Not bad. The 2D fighter resurgence is lovely. I just want to go play Skull Girls, Persona 4: Arena, and look up Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike gifs.
