Super Sized Shining Hearts Art

By Spencer . August 6, 2010 . 12:52am

Sega formally announced Shining Hearts, a traditional RPG where you help an islander girl regain her heart. Tony Taka who did the artwork for Shining Wind will reprise his role for Shining Hearts.




Hiroki Kikuta known for his work on Secret of Mana is composing the music for Shining Wind. Lia (this Lia, I think) is attached to sing the game’s theme song.


Sega’s “RPG that reaches the heart” is scheduled for release this winter.

    Well, looks like one more artbook to buy along the line. I do hope the game is at least good enough such that I’ll own the game as well. Lia doing the song though? Not really my thing, but it should be decent. Hiroki Kikuta though, well, I didn’t feel much for Secret of Mana, but I really loved his work for 3.

    Keep the news coming, Spencer!

  • Are offical artists allowed to draw ero-doujin based on games they have been involved with?

    • landlock

      Don’t know for sure but he did aload of ero stuff for Shining Tears and Shining Wind so they must not care if there working together again on Shining Hearts.

      So i’m gonna say yes.

    • Ereek

      Yes.I suggest looking up Satoshi Urushihara. In gaming, he’s best known for Growlanser and Langrisser, but also did things like Plastic Little.

        er… I think you meant Kenichi Sonoda when you mentioned Bubblegum Crisis.

        • Ereek

          Yeah, my mistake. Edited now for fixing. Seriously, how the hell did I do that? Remind me never to post while sleepy.

    • goronyan

      yeah it’s just a doujin, but some artists tend to have 1 or more nicknames in order to not harm or affect his/her works. tenkla/sakazaki doi is an example of it.

    If this is anything like Shining in the Darkness, it will be mine.

    But I’m afraid it might be a very standard RPG instead.

  • It is “that Lia”, Spencer. She’s also a former member of I’ve Sound.

  • Cloud_ST

    Maybe I’m nitpicking but the “light” armor of the male protagonist kinda disturbs me.

  • No elf girl in the main party? Do not like it D:

    This RPG should be better than Shining Wind….at least I expect that.

  • Help her regain her heart, and lose her virginity, right?

  • karasuKumo

    I love his art style :D
