GFB: "Nintendo Wii gamers have had a rough ride when it comes to getting quality games that don’t carry the Nintendo publishing logo. Their strife is nothing compared to fans of the classic JRPG, which has been slowly abandoned by developers as the western RPG continues to gain popularity. Thankfully for fans of both the Wii and the dying JRPG, we have Arc Rise Fantasia from developer Image Epoch and publisher Ignition. Every element fans of the genre love is here and represented well. It’s almost as if Image Epoch sat down and during the brainstorming session, wrote down every well-known fixture of popular Japanese role-playing games and made sure to include every last one."
