Arc Rise Fantasia (アークライズファンタジア, Āku Raizu Fantajia?) is a fantasy role-playing game developed by Image Epoch and published by Marvelous Entertainment for the Wii. It is Image Epoch's first game not developed for a handheld game console. Arc Rise Fantasia was released in Japan on June 4, 2009, and in North America on July 20, 2010.
Relationship to Luminous Arc Edit
Arc Rise Fantasia is generally considered to be within the same universe as the Luminous Arc series. This is evidenced in game by the existence of Kopins, the cameos of Saki, Vanessa and Lucia and the use of Rico as currency.
The game is a turn-based role-playing game. The player and the enemy both move and fight during the same phase of battle, but the turn order is determined by the actions taken. Parties consist of three characters who each share a single AP gauge, which empties as various actions are performed. During certain parts of the game, the active team may be made up of four members instead of three, though the fourth can only be controlled by the AI.
