Legend of Arcadia’s Universe (Source: Medium.com/@LegendofArcadia)
"The background story in the Arcadia Universe is pretty good and the anime references in the game’s lore anime make me happy. The sound effect and graphics are pretty decent and smooth at the same time. The gameplay is enjoyable but when you reach higher stages you can't do anything. The only thing that you can do is to wait a bit and then come back again after 5 hours and claim EXP, and upgrade or level up your stands." - (A.G.Taki)
