Magical Beat Released

Arc System Works brings the drop-down rhythm puzzle sensation featuring music by the Nico Nico celebrity and sound creator Kikuo to North America
Arc System Works announced today that Magical Beat, a rhythm/puzzle game developed for PlayStation Vita, is available for purchase now in North America as a digital download. Magical Beat remixes the puzzle genre by adding in a beat - you will drop colored blocks in a match-3 style to the background music's rhythm with perfect timing to send blocks to your opponent's screen. 8-bit characters and menus guide you through stages with different BPMs for unique challenges and combo possibilities. Magical Beat features an original Vocaloid soundtrack created by Nico Nico celebrity and prolific sound creator Kikuo.
Upcoming downloadable content features cameos and tunes from Arc System Works' flagship titles: XBlaze Code: Embryo, BlazBlue, and Guilty Gear. Pixelated versions of BlazBlue fighters like Ragna, Noel, and Taokaka and XBlaze Code: Embryo characters such as Es and Touya make special appearances in Magical Beat.
