Fans of Arc System Works are likely very well versed with their fighting series Guilty Gear and BlazBlue. However, the developer has created many types of games over the years, not just fighters. One of their latest projects is Magical Beat which is finally coming to North America.
Magical Beat is a puzzle and rhythm game mashup. It has a Tetris-like presentation but tasks players with matching the same color of blocks, ala Puyo Puyo or its many contemporaries. Music overlays each stage and plays a role in successful attempts which is a mechanic familiar to Lumines players.
The game will be available exclusively as a download on PSN for Vita. It will be up for purchase as soon as the regular Tuesday PSN downtime ends.
