This week's Famitsu has reviewed Luminous Arc 3.

Triangle Plaza has photo evidence:

The story, the balance, the amount of content, the pacing... all got praised. That's really a surprisingly positive review.

The reviewers give LA3 four 8s, adding up to 32, which means LA3 qualifies as a Gold title, by Famitsu's standard. That's much better than previous LA games.

(Famitsu's award system ("Dendo", hall of fame) works like this:
30-31: Silver
32-34: Gold
35-40: Platinum)

For reference, Famitsu scores for other Imageepoch games:

Luminous Arc 28
Luminous Arc 2 Will 28
Sands of Destruction 31
Arc Rise Fantasia 32
7th Dragon 33

-There are weapons with different elements, and should be chosen according to the situation. (LA3 allows changing equipments before battle IIRC)
-The librarian sells secret info of characters, which can help with the intermissions.
-Glen gives important hints before each battle.
-A side quest example: Guardians of Rose.


If you haven't payed attention to the "pre-release info center" post, it has been updated with a lot of content recently. Take a look.
