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.
