Aquapazza: Aquaplus Dream Match, the Examu-developed fighting game featuring characters from various Aquaplus titles, is finally hitting North America. Siliconera is reporting that Atlus will be bringing the game over to PlayStation 3 in the region this November. This news comes after a listing for an English version of the popular fighter was recently spotted on Play-Asia.

For those not familiar with the company, Aquaplus is known for publishing hit visual novels under their Leaf brand. Aquapazza takes the characters from some of Aquaplus’ most well-known titles and puts them together in a fighting game developed by Examu of Arcana Heart fame. Aquapazza has been a part of Japanese tournaments such as Tougeki SUPER BATTLE OPERA 2012 and GODSGARDEN #8 and saw its original console release in August of 2012.

UPDATE – While a concrete date has yet to be confirmed, a new Amazon listing for the title mentions a November 19 release.

UPDATE 2 – An email sent out by Atlus this morning says the game will be available at retail and on PlayStation Network for only $29.99.
