Sega’s Shining Force Revival
Sega has been starting a Shining Force revival of sorts, announcing Shining Force and Shining Tears for PS2, and releasing Shining Soul 2, and the Shining Force remake “SF: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon” on GBA. Now, Sega has announced that there will be yet another Shining Force released.
“The new history of the Shining series starts today,” Takezaki said. “We’ve also begun planning for the next-next game (the fourth release).” He explained that he hopes to see no long breaks between future releases in the series, so that fans can keep following it on a regular basis.
So Shining Force fans, you can expect to see a lot more of your favorite RPG series later this year. For those of you new to the series, Shining Force was a strategy RPG released for the Genesis, and later the Saturn and the Game Gear. There have also been several spin offs to the series, the latest being two action RPGs, Shining Soul and Shining Tears.
An interesting development that will certainly have its effect on the Shining fangame scene, but I guess we can only wait and see as to what its impact will be :).
Any large news will certainly be posted here in due time, but feel free to check the DcD site for the latest updates on this :).
