Arc Rise Fantasia, an RPG developed by Imageepoch and published by Marvelous for Wii, is nearing completion. Japan will see the game in stores on June 4 in Japan. Xseed and Marvelous USA will publish Arc Rise Fantasia in North America this year, but a specific date has not been announced.
When we spoke to Imageepoch President Ryoei Mikage he explained the story revolves around fallen dragons that contaminate the world and a mystical energy known as “Ray” that countries are fighting over. Arc Rise Fantasia uses a turn based combat system with a shared action point meter. You can expend all of your AP on L’Arc (he’s the sword wielding character wearing red) or split up AP between the three member party and set up combo attacks.
