AquaPazza a 2D fighting game puts the characters from developer AquaPlus' previous titles, including Tears to Tiara, ToHeart and Utawarerumono. The game has 13 playable characters and 13 partners to choose from, plus an additional hidden character. AquaPazza's characters use flashy combos, partner attacks, and deadly chains to stay competitive. The Japanese voice track will be left completely intact for the North American release.
Altus has let their fans know of AquaPazza's features:
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 releases on November 19th, 2013 in North America for both digital download and retail. It will be available at a low price off $29.99.
