Imageepoch's Arc Rise Fantasia is coming to the Wii in June courtesy of Ignition Entertainment, who's passed along this exclusive look at the characters and environments of the turn-based role-playing game.

The Meridian Empire is beset by flocks of Containment Dragons, strange creature filled with poison that can contaminate entire regions should they explode. L'Arc is a mercenary sent to help defeat the dragons before they reach the capital city of Diamant. Hijinks ensue, and soon L'Arc finds himself part of a RPG party, doing RPG things. There's summoning involved.

At least the beginning of the story is unique enough, I suppose, though it remains to be seen (by North American audiences at least) how far the game strays from standard JRPG mechanics and themes.

At least it's pretty, and there are experience levels involved, which fits my criteria for trying anything.
