Game Profile

Arc Rise Fantasia delivers a traditional Japanese RPG experience unlike anything currently available on the Nintendo Wii.

The game features everything fans of the JRPG genre want out of a classic gaming experience. As the mercenary L’Arc, players must gather friends and allies to defend the peaceful Meridian Empire from a mysterious enemy. But what starts as a struggle to save an empire quickly unravels into a desperate fight to save the face of the planet. Filled with memorable characters, pulse-pounding combat and a sweeping storyline, Arc Rise Fantasia distills more than a decade of gaming tradition into one unforgettable journey.
