The Shining series has been going on for well over 20 years, and Sega recently announced the latest game in the series, Shining Resonance. The upcoming PlayStation 3 title will be the first game where the protagonist will be an actual dragon. Famitsu gives us a first look at the game, and some details behind the game’s story.


At the ancient continent, there exists a land of the god, called “Alfheim.” Long ago, dragons prospered in this world, but much time has gone by since then. The souls of the dragons have been crystallized and scattered across the world.


However, the existence of a dragon was confirmed. Its name, Shining Dragon Irvan” In order to acquire the lost dragon’s power, the imperial army, church forces, and those who stand against the scaled beasts, the Dragon Slayers, all began their movement.


A single maiden saved the dragon from the clutches of those who desired its power. Long before, there were those known as “Dragon Performers,” a group of soldiers who gathered around the dragons. This dragon retains memories of being treated for a would by a “maiden” when it was younger.


This would be a fateful reunion… of the beautiful story about a dragon and a maiden.


Shining Dragon Irvan:



Irvan is one of the remaining dragons in the world, an existence that should no longer be part of the world. Various people and groups are after Irvan to acquire its powers.
