shininga4Sega is giving a bunch of goodies to fans that reserve their next RPG, Shining Ark. The most interesting item is a crossover character from Shining Wind.


Reserve the game and you get Rouna Murasame as a playable character. Rouna won’t show up in the story, but she can join the Shining Ark party in battle. Sega has not said if players will be able to purchase Rouna  or any other Shining Hearts characters after the game launches.


Shining Ark is slated for release on PSP on February 28, 2013.

    pls bring this to the west.

  • MrTyrant

    Man, she looks better than the main girls.

  • DanteJones

    Katana-wielding cat fox maid as a party member? …very well. Proceed.

    • MrTyrant

      Cat maid? she is a fox. One of the main heroines in Hearts, her ending was pretty <3

      • DanteJones

        Really? Dang, the ears threw me off. Corrected!

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        Most ending in Hearts is pretty though.^_^

  • Bobthegreat

    I am pretty sure that she only appeared in Shining Hearts, not Shining Wind. Maybe you are mixing her up with Rana, who shares the same voice actress and has been in almost all Tony Taka Shining games.

    She’s from Shining Hearts, but that blade of hers from Shining Wind?

    • MrTyrant

      No, “her blade” was also in Shining Hearts. Most of her sidequest involves her fighting for her blade. That same blade with personality was giving a more deep story in Shining Blade but this time her owner will be the main character, Rage.

      Also the Blade has a romantic ending lol

        I see, thanks for the correction.

        It’s pretty messy when the title for all “Shining” series are almost identical.

        • MrTyrant

          It’s really more messy than you think because they are all related in the same world. Shining Heart from what I understand it’s a “dream world” that happen after blade but I doesn’t actually happen anywhere because it’s like a dream.

          Shining Blade is a direct secuel of Wind and they share same characters. Rage the main character in blade is Seena’s little brother. (Seena was one of the main girls in Wind)

  • Stranger On The Road

    wait, I thought the PSP didn’t support DLCs. Which means you either get her on the UMD or you don’t. Or did the PSP support DLCs, and I somehow have missed it?

    • Z3

      It did on Dissidia FF

    • s07195

      It does I think, because they did it with Taiko no Tatsujin DX.

    • fyi1191

      Busou Shinki Battle Masters 1 n 2 have tons of DLCs.
