Sega Makes A Silly Mistake With Shining Force Cross

By Spencer . January 28, 2009 . 7:27am

sfc Thanks to the Japanese Trademark database we’re clued into another Shining Force game from Sega. Shining Force Cross was registered on December 10 along with the pictured logo.


In addition to registering a possible video game title Sega trademarked two related website names: and Being this protective is quite unusual unless Sega has plans to build an online community for Shining Force Cross. If that’s the case Sega better move quickly and register As of now that name is up for grabs. Whoops!

  • The more the better!

    I’m looking forward to more info.

    Please, God, be a true follow-up to classic Shining Force–I love EXA, etc., as much as the next fan, but enough already–the gaming Luddite in me wants some classic SRPG action (no, Feather is not ‘classic’ SF)!

  • MadMirko

    Turn based strategy, please.

    Yeah, not going to happen, but … :(

    • jj984jj

      Shining Force Feather is turn based strategy…

      • MadMirko

        Right, but it also has those Valkyrie Profile-esque combat sequences. Nothing wrong with that (will definitely buy, most likely enjoy), but this old fart longs for the classic gameplay and presentation of SF I or II.

    So Cross may be say, a PC/Online Digital Download game?

    Doesn’t matter that much to me, as Shining Force Gear is very likely Neverland’s next game after Rune Factory Frontier and will also be on the Wii. Released this year even!

    Can’t have two Wii Shining Force games in a year now can we?

    • lostinblue

      hmm? is there one already?

      I’m only aware of Shining Force Feather (and I’m aware of one shining force wii rumor, but nothing came of it)

      Anyway! what I really want is Skies of Arcadia 2!

  • Mazen

    I cant wait to hear more news.

    I hope this is a next-gen title I would love to see the Shining series return with PS3/360 visuals especially with a few gameplay ques taken from Valkyria Chronicles. I just hope it’s not another DS RPG…….
