Agreed it's a great game and the soundtrack is amazing.


I've played all in the modern reboot with the exception of Shining Road and Shining Wind X what with them being Japan Mobile games.


They cover a lot of plot points.

That's neat. I presume you can read Japanese then?

You know sometimes I don't get why some Shining Forces fans hates modern series to the point of always bashing them in the SEGA Facebook or Twitter page whenever it mentioned.
Kinda like how some Shin Megami Tensei fans hates Persona series.
As for me, both series could co-exist together, like 3D Sonic and 2D Sonic.

Happy 30th Anniversary to Shining in the Darkness !



Quote
Shining in the Darkness, called Shining and the Darkness in Japan, is a 1991 game by Sega and Climax Entertainment for the Sega Mega Drive.
It is the first game in Sega's Shining series — but unlike most of the rest of the franchise, this one is a 3D dungeon-crawler RPG.

Shining Force Artist Mick McGinty Has Passed Away



Quote
Mick McGinty was an artist with unparalleled talent. Back when video games required enticing box art to sell, much like books often require captivating covers, Mick was one of the best around.
Mick created artwork for Street Fighter 2, Streets of Rage 2, Streets of Rage 3, Shining Force, Kid Chameleon, and more.
However, his talents weren’t even restricted to video game art, as he has a website dedicated to a whole host of other art, including breathtaking scenic landscapes.
