It seems that SEGA isn’t done with the Shining IP, at least not for now. SEGA is still working on and promoting their Shining fighting arcade game and now they revealed that they are working on a Shining RPG for the Playstation 3. The game is called ‘Shining Resonance‘ and is being developed by Media Vision (Wild Arms series, Shining Ark and Valkyria Chronicles III). Tony Taka is also being confirmed as returning for the game’s character designs.
After the break we take a look at the first character announced, Kirika Towa Alma.
Kirika Towa Alma
“A girl who learns the ancient song magic.”
Class: Song Maiden
Magic: Sacred Magic
Kirika is an elf who learns the song of magic which allows her to freely change the power of nature. However, she is a better healer than a damage dealer. She may seem withdrawn at first, but she is generally known to be a kind person.
Other information revealed included how playing music in the game will harmonize dragons, which will enable you to unleash spells and techniques. Also confirmed no transition between play fields and battles, so no pesky loading screen between.
No release date has been announced.Ad:
