Game Gear RPG, Shining Force: Sword of Hajya, Headed To 3DS Virtual Console


The Australian Classifications board have published a rating for Shining Force: Sword of Hajya, filed by Sega. Why is this interesting? Because Sword of Hajya is a Game Gear title, which means this is likely a listing for the 3DS Virtual Console.


Along with this listing, Sega also filed one for Defenders of  Oasis, a Game Gear RPG inspired by the Arabian Knights stories.


Sega haven’t announced either game officially yet. The only Game Gear titles available on the eShop at present are: G.G. Shinobi, Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble and Dragon Crystal.
