The Shining series evolved from a strategy RPG, to action RPG, and now to something like Valkyria Chronicles. Shining Blade for PSP has an action based battle system where players can move on the battlefield while Rage, the a swordsman from another world, selects attacks from command windows. Players can switch between five party members and team up with allies for combo attacks.
Divas are at the heart of Shining Blade’s story and in battle this class can sing Force Songs. Similar to the Bard’s abilities from the Final Fantasy series, Elmina’s Force Songs can buff your party by creating a damage reducing force field or regenerating HP.
Shining Blade comes out on March 15.
