Sega Makes A Silly Mistake With Shining Force Cross

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

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: shiningforcecross.net and sfc.net. Being this protective is quite unusual unless Sega […]

Shining Force: Feather Is Easy On The Eyes

By Spencer . January 19, 2009 . 2:09pm

Even if you’re not sold on Shining Force: Feather’s Xenogears meets Makai Kingdom strategy RPG combat system you still need to see this movie. It’s not game footage per se, but it is from the game. This is Shining Force: Feather’s animated intro video. Pre-order Shining Force: Feather in Japan and you get a bonus […]

A Glance At Combat In Shining Force: Feather

By Spencer . December 9, 2008 . 8:15am

Shining Force is returning to its strategy RPG roots, but plenty has changed since Shining Force was part of the SRPG genre. Instead of sticking to a standard isometric grid like many strategy RPGs on the DS, Shining Force: Feather has a free running system. A meter on top lets you know how far you […]

Shining Force Feather Falls Into February

By Spencer . November 17, 2008 . 4:43pm

The official page offers a vague 2009 spring release window for Shining Force Feather, but Sega is returning the Shining Force series to its roots before then. Japan is scheduled to get Shining Force Feather on February 19.   While Shining Force Feather is a tactical RPG it is far from classic Shining Force. First, […]

Illustrious Shining Force II And The Mysterious Madstone

By Spencer . October 6, 2008 . 6:45am

Despite Hudson’s announcement Gradius II won’t be available on the Virtual Console this week. Mario Golf 64 and Shining Force II are this week’s Virtual Console games for 1,000 Wii Points and 800 Wii Points respectively. You could spend $8 commanding humans, birdman, centaurs, and robots in tactical RPG battles. But, eight bucks also buys […]

Shining Force Feather blends tactical combat with flashy action

By Spencer . September 8, 2008 . 11:50am

Sega is blending Shining Force’s strategy RPG roots with the recent wave of Shining Force action RPGs on the PlayStation 2. Shining Force Feather contains elements of both styles in combat. You freely move units without worrying about a grid. During the attacking phase you hit the four face buttons to do different attacks which […]

Shining Force coming to the virtual console?

By Spencer . June 22, 2007 . 1:05pm

  Sega hasn’t officially announced it, but the ESRB has a rating up for Shining Force. Many years ago before strategy RPGs were a regular genre in North America, Sega released Shining Force on the Genesis. It’s a classic and well worth the 800 Wii Points a Sega Genesis title costs.   Also on the […]

Watch: Shining Force Exa trailer

By Spencer . March 1, 2007 . 7:10am

Sega is releasing Shining Force Exa in North America this month. It is a follow up to their other Shining Force action RPG, Shining Force Neo. While Sega has been taking the Shining Force series in “bold” new directions I’m hoping that Sega goes back to the drawing board and makes a strategy RPG. Or […]

Sega preps Shining Force EXA for Spring ‘07

By Spencer . December 5, 2006 . 8:16am

While the Shining Force series begun as the great, great, great, grandfather of the modern SRPG it evolved to become an action RPG series. In some ways Shining Force EXA goes back to the series roots with the “Fortress System”. In the latest Shining Force game you have to balance between defending your base and […]
