Still exclusive to SEGA’s Japanese arcades, this current trailer for Shining Force Cross Raid continues to show the improvements AM2 is hoping to bring in the way of new bosses that range from a giant black dragon to a large clunky robot. They also hint at a new area and costume items the players will be able to collect to further customise their characters. The trailer shows plenty of battling and platforming that the Shining Force Cross titles have come to be known for.
Shining Force Cross: Raid
SEGA has opened up a site portal to tease us on what to expect at AOU 2011. Of course, they won’t reveal their secret titles on their site, you have to be there! What we do know is that this year’s theme is “Real Entertainment.”
As for confirmed titles to be shown:
- SEGA Card-Gen MLB 2010
- Network Taisen Quiz Answer x Answer Live!
- Border Break: Air Burst
- Shining Force Cross: Raid
- Hatsune Miku Project Diva Arcade ver. A
- Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown
Issues? All of these titles are old. I assume all new titles will be revealed at the show. SEGA has debuted games like Project Diva and Block People at AOU so don’t be shocked to get some new games this year.
AOU 2011 will be held on February 18th and 19th. If anything sexy is announced we will have it on this blog, along with exclamation marks.
More of those tie-ins we all love, right? This time Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity will tie-in with Shining Force Cross Raid and Border Break Air Burst. Sorry for those thinking it would have been the original Shining Force.
The cross over content will be released as DLC, this will include costumes and weapons. Also Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity will have weapons, characters and costumes available for Border Break Air Burst and Shining Force Cross Raid. Now that is how you cross promote a game. Sadly, no screens of the cross over have been made public.
SEGA is beefing up their line up for JAMMA this year, they started it off by announcing 3 new titles. This one is one of those titles. Its a ‘expansion’ version of Shining Force Cross, only this one adds another word to the title. Raid!
This title is going to have more levels, more weapons, more items and new characters to play as. We won’t get to play it, so I guess it doesn’t matter.
