Hit rhythm game Arcaea finds a new groove in version 4.0

Two anime characters from Arcaea version 4.0. The one on the left has long blonde hair, a brown jacked, and numerous red bows down her front. The one on the left has black hair with blue ribbons, and a black and pink dress.

Arcaea, the successful rhythm game from Lowiro Limited, is finally closing out its main storyline with update 4.0, which also includes brand new songs and a new game mode. It’s sure been a long ride since release all the way back in 2017, but we made it.

From its wide cast of characters to its unique take on the rhythm genre, Arcaea version 4.0 is set to wrap everything up in a ‘momentous finale.’ You can learn a lot more about it reaching its crescendo in our Arcaea interview, where we chatted with Lowiro’s studio head Anton Prydatko to discuss the game’s journey.

There isn’t just story content on the way, however, as Arcaea version 4.0 brings four new songs – three of which are free to unlock – and a brand new course mode. This mode works a bit like a boss rush, seeing how long the player can endure on a series of courses.
