Ignition today announced that Arc Rise Fantasia for the Wii will ship to stores on July 20.
"Arc Rise Fantasia truly fills a gap in the Nintendo Wii library," said Nigel Fox, European Head of Publishing for UTV Ignition Entertainment. "It offers a solid JRPG experience for longtime fans of the genre, but also serves as a perfect way to introduce Wii owners to deeper, more engrossing video games. So many people bought Wii so they could work out, but are missing out on games like Arc Rise Fantasia, which offers the drama of a soap opera and imaginative settings of a great film."
Arc Rise Fantasia delivers a traditional Japanese RPG (JRPG) 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.
