Monster Hunter 3 (tri-) is the third console installment in the popular Monster Hunter franchise scheduled for release for the Wii. The title was initially scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 but was announced to have been moved to the Wii during Nintendo's Fall 2007 Conference "due to high development cost of titles for PS3". A trailer of the game was also shown during the same event.

It was also announced that a demo is being released only in Japan as an addition with the Monster Hunter G Pack on the 23rd of April 2009. Although there isn't any news on an exact release date of Monster Hunter 3, it is being released in Japan in Summer 2009. Capcom has also stated that it wishes to release its leading franchises (including Monster Hunter) into the western market.
  • According to a recent interview with game producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, while each weapon class will be updated with new moves and innovations, the number of weapon classes will be stripped down from ten to seven. Weapon classes included will be Sword and Shield, Great Sword, Hammer, Bowgun (Light, Medium & Heavy), Lance, Katana (Longsword), and the new Slash Axe (Polearm). This means that Hunting Horns, Gunlances, Longbows, and possibly Dual Swords will be omitted.

Arc Rise Fantasia is a fantasy role-playing game developed by imageepoch and published by Marvelous Entertainment for the Wii. It will be imageepoch's first game not developed for a handheld game console. Arc Rise Fantasia has been announced for release in Japan and North America in 2009. The game is a turn-based RPG. There will be three-character parties, with a single AP gauge being shared by the team, which empties as various actions are performed. Multiple attacks are possible, as well as massive attacks that will drain a lot of AP. If team members use the same skills, those skills will be increased. There are also summon beasts in the game called "Roguresu.

  • Arc Rise Fantasia is set in the Meridian Empire. Creatures called "Contaminant Dragons" are causing a lot of trouble as they pass the Meridian in flocks. If one is killed, the resulting explosion poisons the local area. When the empire receives word that a massive horde has its sights on the capital of Diamant, it immediately sends out an army to fight them, including L'Arc, a cool and collected novice mercenary, and his friend Arth, the beloved prince and second in line for the throne. L'Arc is severely injured during the battle, but is saved by a girl named Ryfia, who has secrets in her past and possesses the power to control "ley squalls," naturally-occurring storms of magic that usually take the form of luminous rain. A young woman named Adelle, who has been a friend of L'Arc since childhood, renders assistance to the party through use of her unique form of magic, Luminomancy.
  • Other characters include Sarge, an orange-haired dagger fighter, Lesley, a pink-haired gunslinger, Clyde, a general who wields an axe, and Nikol, a young redhead sharpshooter who follows L'Arc like a lost brother.
