Square Enix announced during a Million Arthur tournament event on Saturday that it will release a PlayStation 4 version of the Million Arthur: Arcana Blood arcade game in Japan on November 29. Pre-orders are available now.
The PS4 version will feature the same playable characters as the arcade game, along with the addition of Yamaneko Arthur, "spirit world type" Koume Sakiyama from Lord of Vermilion IV, and "spirit world type" Iori Yagami from King of Fighters XIV.
The arcade game launched in Japan on November 21.
Square Enix released its first mobile card game based on the folklore of King Arthur in Japan in 2012 as Kaku San Sei Million Arthur. South Korean publisher Gamevil brought the game to North America and Europe in 2015, after Square Enix closed the game's Japanese servers in March 2015.
The game inspired a live-action TV show in 2014, and it has also inspired the Jaku-San-Sei Million Arthur four-panel manga. An anime adaptation of the manga started streaming in fall of 2015. Square Enix also released a sequel game, titled Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur, in Japan in November of 2014.
The Operation Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur (Han-Gyaku-Sei Million Arthur) massively multi-player online role-playing game has not yet been scheduled for launch in Japan, but it launched in China on iOS and Android devices in March. The game is inspiring a television anime that will premiere in October.
The game franchise is also getting the Kō-Kyō-Sei Million Arthur action game for iOS and Android devices this year.
