Battle Princess of Arcadias Gets Digital-Only PS3 Release Today

Side-scrolling action RPGs aren’t exactly in abundance, so when a promising one gets a digital-only release, it deserves some attention. Battle Princess of Arcadias is out now for $30. That gets you a fantasy-set action RPG where you, as a princess, set out to take back your kingdom from vicious monsters. Isn’t that always the way? You get things rolling and them BOOM, giant monsters come and screw up all your plans. You can slice and dice enemies up, and from the looks of things, you’ll be facing some screen-filling foes on a fairly regular basis. You’ll have access to over 900 weapons, and can enhance them, so there’s certainly a lot to do here. At only $30, this seems like a solid buy if you like side-scrolling action-RPGs like Muramasa and Odin Sphere.
