Shining Hearts Delayed, Deftly Dodges Monster Hunter Portable 3rd

image Sega pushed Shining Hearts back from December 2nd to December 16. The two week delay keeps Shining Hearts away from Monster Hunter Portable 3rd’s maw. Capcom’s game is slated to rack up monster size sales numbers on December 1 in Japan.


The reason for the delay, according to Sega, wasn’t to avoid competing with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd. Sega plans to use the extra fourteen days to further improve the quality of Shining Hearts.

    And here I thought Sega learned their lesson after releasing Resonance of Fate a week after FFXIII and watched it get swallowed up by the more well known and popular game.

      They did, it’s why they have TWO weeks now =P

    The cover looks less like an RPG and more like a dating sim.

    Which will probably be true.

    I still want to try it, though.

    • It seems like a date sim. I doubt there’s going to be much substance behind the game — I have a feeling the main character isn’t even really related to his “sisters” and therefore dating them is “acceptable” or something gay like that. I hate what they’ve done to the Shining series. They might as well just add in H-Scenes.

        Actually, they aren’t his sisters. They are siblings of each other, but not of the main character. When they said he lives with the sisters, they meant exactly that, not that he lived with his sisters. It’s just a mistranslation that have been going on for a long time. I don’t think a game with potential incest would recieve just a Cero B.

    • lol i got the feeling of valkiria chronicles when i saw the cover O_o

    I just can’t decide if I love or hate Tony Taka’s art. Well, okay, his artwork is fantastic, so of course I love it! But at the same time, it just seems so out of place in what was once a respectable RPG series.

    “We didn’t delay it to avoid competition, we just wanted to improve it, really!”
