Wild Arms developer handling new Shining RPG.

Shining Resonance

Shining Resonance is in development for PlayStation 3, this week’s Famitsu reveals.

Wild Arms studio Media Vision is handling development, with Tony returning for character design and Flight Unit doing the game’s character models.

Here are the details we have so far:

Character: Kirika Towa Alma

The girl who inherits the ancient song.

“I’m sorry, but I have no interest in humans. I only want to understand the heart of dragons.”

Class: Song Maiden
Weapon: Dragon Wing Bow
Main Magic: Sacred Magic

An elf who inherits the song of magic to manipulate the spirit power of mother nature. She is a better healer than a fighter. While she is not good at communicating with humans, she is a generally kind person.

Other Information

  • When you play music, it resonates with the dragon, allowing you to use a powerful technique.
  • When playing, you can hear the music.
  • Field and battles transition seamlessly.

A release date was not announced.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.

Update: Another source of ours came through with more information, although as per usual lately, some of it is arbitrarily censored in places. These portions are marked with asterisks where appropriate. -Thomas James

Main Character: Kouryuu Ilban

The protagonist of the game is said to be an outright dragon and not merely someone who resembles a monster. Human allies can have him attack by way of a weapon that plays a melody known as the Dragonic * Vessel.

Character: *** Blanshe

A black-haired princess who’s also a magic knight, she has a strong-willed temperament even with respect to the protagonist.

Character: **** Bretthart

A red-haired young man who’s something of an older brother to the protagonist.

Character: **** Zalbard

A knight in the empire who goes after dragons, namely the protagonist.

Additional Information

  • Dragons will also show up as members of the opposition, with three of them being shown off in the magazine.
  • Battle parties consist of four characters.
  • Various effects can also occur beyond the previously-described interactions with dragons.
  • The music that’s played in battles and their corresponding effects can change depending on the party member designated as the “center character.”
  • Development is 5* percent complete.

Thanks, Sokuho@Hokanko.

  • Martian Wong

    What are the chance this is coming US?

    • AlphaSixNine

      Better than before I guess… being in PS3 and SEGA now owning ATLUS USA. Let’s hope.

      • Splinter

        It’s true. Fingers crossed.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        ATLUS USA even didn’t bring recent phantasy star series, I still doubt

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      It’s Sega, so…

      lol

      But in all fairness, they’ve been doing good with Miku. But Yakuza…

      • Martian Wong

        And pso 2…

      • Anime10121

        Miku aint really much to translate though is it (not a Miku fan)?

        • Nightcore34

          No not much, translate menu’s, costumes and items but that’s really it.

        • desponent

          But it’s way riskier than console JRPG which started to gain fanbase again in recent year.

          • Anime10121

            But how… they’re not translating much, dont have to worry about a dub, and know that its a VERY niche fanbase so they dont print many copies or even worry about marketing.

            • desponent

              It still cost money and it could be a total flop even with its limited budget, it paid off for them though even though last I heard the sales isn’t even that good (30K or so)

              • MrFinalgamer

                You gotta consider the budget these games have, which I bet is close incredibly low. Which is weird, since SOA doesn’t do much, besides Miku, and Sonic. So one has to wonder what the hell is the rest of the staff doing…

      • kaotron

        I always though that the shining series in general barely had a chance of being localized at all…

      • MrFinalgamer

        And Valkyria Chronicles…=(

    • kurosan9712

      Well, just consider that Shining series, as Shining series with Taka Tony in design(as main designer) has only ever had ONE localization – Shining Tears. All the subsequent games weren’t even considered, probably.
      That’s Shining Wind, Shining Hearts, Shining Blade and Shining Ark.

  • AlphaSixNine

    I can only hope and pray it gets localized. I miss Shining series, and with Tony Taka art, it’s even more painful we never got them. Hoping Sega let ATLUS USA pick it up.

  • MyBodyIsReady

    I thought these guys were working on that new Digimon game?

  • http://ryuz4ki57inenglish.wordpress.com/ Thomas FROEHLICHER

    Kinda expected Vita. Anyway it’s still a lot better than ending up with a 3DS game, so I won’t complain.

    • AlphaSixNine

      I can at least import it this way in case SEGA remains being SEGA.

  • Anime10121

    Sounds great, but Sega’s history localizing jrpgs aint all that strong… So not gonna get hype :(

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Very nice, I’ll grab this

    I want the fighting game too

  • Cant wait even though I never barely finish a shining game… due to most characters having the same faces. crappy reason huh? but I loved the gameplay and story.

  • Onodera Kosaki

    Finally PS3 game no another Ps Vita game
    Looks really interesting…fighting with using music? I like this!

  • kurosan9712

    HELL YEAH! Finally a new Shining game.

    Loved Hearts and Ark, though didn’t like Blade. Hope it’ll be as good as Ark, since it uses a similar battle system(judging by the pic).

    And Taka Tony never fails to get me hyped.

  • DarthBrian

    pfft…PS3? Even Compile Heart has moved on to PS4. Lazy SEGA. ::rolls eyes::

    (will get)

    • TheBlackRabbit

      Now darth,be nice to sega.

      • DarthBrian

        I will once they bring over Valkyria Chronicles 3. :p

        • TheBlackRabbit

          …..Q_Q. Why did you bring that up?….it hurts so much.

          • DarthBrian

            Sorry. T_T

            • TheBlackRabbit

              -dead-

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Genuinely surprised that it isn’t also for Vita given the last three being PSP games.

    • tubers

      Maybe they’ll port it later. :P

  • http://chaosraiden.blogspot.com/ Chaos Raiden

    Sincerely hope this will be translated in English.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      recently, sega only cares about miku and sonic, so I doubt

  • Ta23 Ta28

    Sega, don’t hire T2 so much, I want him to continue drawing ero doujin.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I actually have legitimate hope for this. We got all of the PS2 Shining games but one, then the series moved to PSP and that explains itself.

    Sega’s made some… odd localization choices of late, but between it being a PS3 game and Atlus being around now, I think this has a shot. Actually, Atlus could probably give this series the kind of push in the west Sega never would have on its own. They have a dedicated following and Shining has some recognition of its own, so I could see that working out pretty well for them.

    In short: I want to believe.

    • kurosan9712

      I kinda think that Force Exa/Force Neo aren’t related to this.
      Shining games with Taka Tony(T2) as designer are only Tears, Wind, Hearts, Blade, Ark and this one. Of which only Tears was localized. T2 was the second artist for Neo too, but I don’t think he was the main one(just look at the designs and compare them with Wind or Tears, which are on the same PS2. You’ll see they are VERY different).

      • Solomon_Kano

        I’m aware, but I’d imagine the Tony Taka Shining games not being localized has more to do with them being on PSP in 2010 and beyond than anything to do with Taka’s art

        • kurosan9712

          Then why was Wind not touched?
          That’s 2007. Only a year after PS3 was released in Japan.

          And a reverse question – why was Valkyria Chronicles 2 touched in 2010?
          And considering the’ve done VK2 in 2010 – why not Shining Hearts, which is also 2010?

          Of course it doesn’t have anything to do with T2 art, but it’s just games with his art(strangely enough. since Shining Force without his art on PS2 got localized, both of them) which got the awesome Japan only treatment.

          • Hikari Langley

            Due to declining success of the PSP, also adding insult to injury. Shining Tears was not received well outside of Japan. Due to Shining Wind, looking very similar to Tears. I’m sure that affected the decision, of it’s localization.

            VC2 got a translation due to VC’s slow but sudden increase in popularity, SEGA wanted to give it another try and well they did, but it bombed pretty badly. That’s why we aren’t seeing:

            Valkyria Chronicles 3
            Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity
            Shining Hearts

            The previous versions didn’t sell too hot, was it due to piracy, who knows.

            But like Kano said it has nothing to do with his art, it’s just that series didn’t sell. As for this one, who knows SEGA does seems to be trying in random areas for success, and it does use impressive 3D models and it’s on the PS3, so the plague of the PSP isn’t around. (Flight Plan is really working quite well, check GUST’s Ar nosurge, and Atelier Shallie)

            • kurosan9712

              Exactly the explanation I wanted the guy to understand(just I suck at explaining things).
              Of course, the art itself means nothing in a game localization questions.

              But about the PSP, you’re a bit wrong. Check out Shining Ark. Sega managed to make the best possible graphics PSP can output. And it’s one of the rare PSP games that actually looks good on VIta(bought it on Sega’s -70% sale on JPN PSN. Just 980 yen for that goodness. Also got Shining Hearts for 500 yen on Vita, even earlier than Ark. Sega is awesome with their discount sales). I would actually say it looks better on Vita than some Vita games.

              • Hikari Langley

                How am I wrong, the PSP had the stigma of not really selling any games, so SEGA investing time in any of those Shining games would not have turned out well.

                Especially if two of SEGA’s more popular titles have not even sold well.
                VC2 and Phantasy Star Portable 2

                • kurosan9712

                  Well, maybe in the west. I have a bad habit about only taking Japan when I think about bad or good.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      I can’t imagine the retail PS3 market will be so hot for what’s essentially a new IP in 2015 in the west.

      • Hikari Langley

        2015 is already having a long list of upcoming RPG’s so that’s not too creditable.

        Tales of Zesteria
        Atelier Shallie
        Persona 5

        Are prolly the only confirmed ones, but do remember in the console’s last years are often it’s best.

        • Anime10121

          Precisely, I dont understand how people still dont seem to get that new consoles being out does NOT mean the death of the old ones :/

          PS2 survived a LONG time after its successor reached the market, and so did the psone!

          • DesmaX

            But the PS3 was pretty shitty on release, so no wonder the PS2 survived more

            • Hikari Langley

              Which brings more reason to see why the PS3 is gonna still be supported, PS4 might be out, but everyone isn’t going to be jumping ship just right away.

              We still got the year 2015 to go through for games, before it’s time to focus on next gen. Even with that PS4 really doesn’t have too many JRPG’s (I think they got 3)

              • DesmaX

                Sure, at this point, there isn’t really a good reason to buy one (At least for me).

                But, by the end of 2015, the should be some Killer Apps for the platform.

                That doesn’t mean that everyone will make the jump, of course, but most people will draw their attention to the new platform

        • kurosan9712

          And how are these a NEW IP? None of these are part of any new IP.

          • Hikari Langley

            Where did you get NEW IP’s from? I never said any of the sort, I just said the PS3 still has JRPG’s that are coming out for it far into 2015. So the genre isn’t dead, and completely moved onto next gen yet.

            • kurosan9712

              The guy said “I can’t imagine the retail PS3 market will be so hot for what’s essentially a *new IP* in 2015 in the west.”, so it would be logical that a follow up comment about whatever is coming west in 2015 should contain some kind of a NEW IP to disprove of his post.
              Old IPs only prove his post.

              • Hikari Langley

                Yeah, in a way. But I wasn’t really focused on new IP’s Since Shining Resonance isn’t a new IP. Just going on the fact on everyone is jumping ship to next gen.

                • kurosan9712

                  Well, since the west hasn’t seen any Shining game since Shining Force…which was it? Exa? Neo? well, that was around 2006 or 2007 anyways, it is kinda a new IP, since it was dead for like 7 or 8 years. Only people who have played it then, or played the subsequent games in japanese, or people reading news sites would remember it, probably.
                  That’s however not the majority of western players, so…yeah.

                  • Hikari Langley

                    But older players, know well about the Shining series. Shining Force Exa was the last western release.

                    But Wild Arms has been dead for what 5 years, and people still remember that.

                    • kurosan9712

                      Different series, different people, different result.

                      You said it yourself, but Shining PS2 games weren’t received really well in the west, so not remembering it would be logical.

                    • Hikari Langley

                      Fans, is all that’s expected to remember it. Old Shining games had a lot of fans, new comers might not actually know of that.

                    • kurosan9712

                      Sadly for you or the other guys who want this in the west, most old Shining games fans are probably out of this game’s audience. Because Shining series in general(not Shining Force sub-series, or anything) started as a totally different thing from what we have now. They were Tactical RPG(TRPG), or Simulation RPG(SRPG), how that is called in Japan.
                      However current games are very different, and from the article, you can deduce this one moves even farther from old games that old fans would love.

                      It’s those newcomers that will form most of this(and current Shining series) game’s audience.

                      I myself am one of those people who NEVER liked old Shining games, but came to like the new ones, btw.

                    • Guest

                      I’m fairly certain he’s referring to Western fans of the PS2 games, not so much the Sega Mega Drive nor Saturn games. If we want to be super specific the actual Shining series started as a dungeon crawler.

                    • kurosan9712

                      Which one was it? I never played Shining & the Darkness(the actual first game for Sega Genesis), so it might have been a dungeon crawler, but I’ve never heard it was.

                    • Guest

                      Yep, that’s the one; the proceeding games, starting with the first Shining Force were SRPGs.

                    • kurosan9712

                      Well, I only played Shining Force of the old ones.
                      I knew there was that one game that started the series, but I was never interested enough to try it(especially since I didn’t like Shining Force games).

                    • Guest

                      Yeah, I wasn’t a big fan of any of the games on the Sega Consoles. I really never enjoyed anything on the PS2 either; Tears and Wind, if I recall correctly, felt like an incredibly gimped Ys. I found the PSP games to be at least somewhat enjoyable, though, dull in extended playing sessions. Anyway, hopefully the upcoming game will be somewhat decent.

                    • kurosan9712

                      Dunno. I really enjoyed Hearts and Ark.
                      Hearts were great story/lore/character-wise. I’ve played that game a lot on PSP, and even bought it on Vita too(on sale, yeah).
                      I’ve finished Ark once(since it’s one ending only game), but still bought it on Vita too(on sale, yeah). Loved the characters/battle system. Also awesome giant enemies battles. I was also surprised at what was the last boss. It was REALLY big(the first phase).

                      I didn’t like Blade, however, so I hope Resonance won’t be like it. That awful Senjou no Valkyria-like battle system is just wrong.

                      Tears and Wind were also never really like Ys, since they were more of an RPG than Action.
                      And they had a great story too.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Which is where Atlus’ potential involvement is key. They aren’t about to jump straight into PS4/X1/Wii U localizations — there won’t be much to localize there for a bit, I’d imagine. They found success localizing PS2 games well after the PS3 had dropped, so I don’t imagine the same won’t be possible this gen.

        There’s a sizeable install base on the PS3, particularly Atlus/Aksys/XSEED has done well in cultivating it as a platform friendly to niche gamers, so I’d imagine the audience that matters most here would still be interested in the PS3 come 2015. Tales of Zestiria alone guarantees people will still be looking to the PS3 for RPGs in 2015.

    • DesmaX

      The PS3 might be dead by the time they manage to release it here, so I dunno.

      I mean, this doesn’t look like it will be out by the end of this year in japan

      • Solomon_Kano

        If the game can manage a 2015 release, I don’t think that will be an issue.

        • DesmaX

          End of 2015 doesn’t sound too shabby for me.

          I guess the console can have some good games in 2016, but I don’t think it will really be profitable at that point

          • Solomon_Kano

            I think the games that will be in the most danger of losing sales will be in series that will have abandoned ship for current gen by then anyway.

            Right now, the sort of gamer who’s heavy into RPGs and Japanese games doesn’t really have a reason to jump to current gen. X might tempt some into a Wii U and XV, should it hit next year, would grab a large chunk for PS4/X1, but I think these smaller games face the least danger of getting damaged by these transitions.

            • DesmaX

              I guess. But this is Sega (The ones who didn’t localize Yakuza 5), so I’m pretty sure they would expect more sales than your regular Niche RPG

              • Hikari Langley

                You know SEGA didn’t localize Yakuza 5 due to Dead Souls horrible sales, they had extremely high expectations due from Yakuza 4. Sad, but that’s how they wore working at the time.

                But hey NamcoBandai is seeing new light in Japanese titles, so who knows if SEGA isn’t trying to craft their business plan around (fingers crossed)

                • DesmaX

                  Oh yeah, Dead Souls was a thing. I do have a feeling the just release that to kill the franchise here (But that’s kinda silly to think)

              • Solomon_Kano

                If they have the faith to localize it themselves, maybe. But, then, Miku tells us there’s some kinda of shift in expectations happening at the moment. A title like that never would have happened a few years ago, so who can say?

                Now, if they pass it off to Atlus, that in itself would be telling of their expectations.

                • DesmaX

                  That would be cool. But on the other hand Miku games were pretty easy to localize.

                  But I would like to be surprised too

                  • Solomon_Kano

                    Yea, that they didn’t need to do much to bring Miku over kinda makes it hard to apply elsewhere, but I’d like to think that them ignoring Miku for years even with the relative ease of localizing it means /something/ has changed.

                    But I guess time will tell, eh?

          • Samsara09

            By 2016,the PS3 will be 10 years old.I doubt the rpg genre will stick with it.SE already left it,Namco’s tales of and Atlus’s persona will probably leave it next year,once they release their last games for it.

  • Hikaru Lighthalzen

    before i see this article i m pretty sure next shining game will be released on vita…..
    yeah , sega got me a critical hit wrong guess this time

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    >Tony Taka drawing elves.

    This is my fetish.

    • Ta23 Ta28

      Since she’s an elf, I’m expecting some ____ doujins.

      Oh wait, it doesn’t count as ____ if it’s with an elf.

  • Six

    Oh man, a console JRPG that falls outside the realms of moe uguu~ and Linkin Park AMV material?!

    Day o… oh, it’s Sega. I should probably start forgetting this exists.

    • desponent

      Have you played any recent Shining game? And by recent I mean for the last 5-7 year.

      • Anime10121

        Probably not, because Sega hasnt localized them :/

        • desponent

          Ironically for the reason he was excited for this.

          And the irony of this all is that those games could actually gain a sizable fanbase on the west for the same reason, but it’s sega.

          Then again they also published PJDF on the west, so maybe this one has a chance.

          • MrFinalgamer

            We would already be enjoying Phantasty Star Online 2, VC3 (fuck you SEGA for not localizing this!), and Yakuza 5/Ishin if that was the case…

            • desponent

              VC3 is a lost cause since it’s on PSP late. PSO2 is a free MMORPG, Sega gave Yakuza some chance up to the fourth game and it seems it didn’t paid off at all.

              Modern Shining game could appeal to both JRPG fanbase and Anime (Neptune-like) fanbase. But I dunno what’s going on with SOA lately so I dunno.

              Worst thing about sega is that they’re anti cross publishing, those bastard.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            they only care of sonic and miku nowadays

        • Audie Bakerson

          Seriously. The artbook for Feather was translated, but not the game.

  • z_merquise

    Looks interesting.

    We’ll just wait and see how effective Sega’s acquisition of Atlus now.

    • desponent

      Meh Atlus and their sub par voice actors/actress, especially for this kind of game.

        He might turn into one. That’s usually how a tale conclude, lol.

      BoF’s MC ultimate dragon form is usually just as awesome though.

      I might be right there with you, depending on how this turns out. I eagerly await a more proper reveal at TGS.

      EDIT: Actually, scratch that TGS part. That damn asterisk screwed with my head, lol. I thought it meant it was only 5% complete, but that could be anywhere between 50 to 59. So yeah, this will definitely release before TGS since that’s in September.

      • Samsara09

        Man,when I saw that 5*%,my heart froze!Damn,great!

    • fyi1191

      They look awesome together in that shot.
      Oh dragon, please don’t turn into some sort of guy/hybrid.

      • desponent

        lol do you hate guys in your game so much?

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          I don’t think it’s so much that. It would just be kind of cheap if the dragon turned into a guy, lol. We’ve seen this sort of thing before, so it would be nice if it stayed as a dragon for a change instead of turning into a guy or a hybrid.

      True Ending : That Woman Married The Dragon

  • $61526767

    All of this sounds really interesting, I’m especially interested in the main protagonist mostly.

  • bloodiOS

    *cries*

    Wild Arms studio Media Vision is handling development

    Color me intrigued. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one for sure!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      they’re developing 2 games simultaneously, that must be really hard for them. None of the projects are minor one

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Yeah, but I don’t really care about Digimon X3

        • Kenny ケニー

          to me i care the digimon game much more than the new shining game lol

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            Well, I guess somebody has to =3=

            • Kenny ケニー

              lol yeah haha but that doesn’t mean i don’t like Shining series, since i am a hardcore Digimon fan so i will like almost everythings from Digimon xD

  • Samsara09

    I feel unworthy of this…I am almost crying…YES!One more rpg!
    Hope this one is good.

  • Chris Cruz

    So… where’s that new Wild ARMs game they were hinting at?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Buried underneath god knows how much paperwork at the office, lol. I haven’t heard that mentioned in yeeeeeeeeeeears. Who knows, they may actually bring it back up again after this is over.

      Now, whether or not we’ll see it on PS3 or PS4 is up in the air, but we haven’t seen the last of Wild Arms.

      • Hikari Langley

        Hopefully we’ll see something at TGS or who knows, E3? But I know we’ll hear about it before the end of this year.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          A new Wild Arms announced at E3? Very very doubtful, lol. TGS? Maybe, but I wouldn’t count on it. You don’t know that we’ll hear about it before the end of the year though :p

  • sub_o

    Hmm, I’m new to this. It seems like quite a number of games in the Shining series are not localized…

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Yep. We basically stopped showing support for them in the PS2 days. The last one we localized was Shining Force EXA in 2007, iirc.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    so now Media.Vision is working on 2 projects simultaneously
    wew

  • Northstar

    PS3 highlander!!!

  • Lightthrower

    Still not Shining Force 4…

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      I don’t think that will ever happen, honestly. I’m not even really sure where they would go beyond the third scenario in Shining Force III anyway. I mean, I guess they could make a new one, but eh… That game is so old now, I doubt many would even know what the hell it is if they just randomly released Shining Force IV out of nowhere, lol.

      As much as I hate to say it, spin offs are the best option to continue the Shining series at this point.

  • Eclipse

    Ah, considering that the previous games were on the PSP, I’m a bit surprised that this isn’t for the Vita. Oh well, I’ll definitely be importing this.

    I’m also really glad to see that they’re sticking with T2’s art.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if they do have one in the works for Vita. They are probably just wanting to get the bigger title out of the pipeline first.

  • Elvick

    Media.Vision <3

    We'll never get this though. </3

    *tears* (heh… get it?…)

    Ugh, fucking disqus work PROPERLY YOU POS

  • Walkingvirus

    Wow this game looks awesome! I think I’m going to import it. My last shining game was Shining Tears lol.

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    God, I hope we get this game. Not only because we haven’t seen a proper Shining series entry since the PS2 ear, but we haven’t seen a Media.Vision game in forever either (except for Chaos Rings, which I don’t play because I don’t buy games on my tablet).

    Media.Vision supposedly did a FANTASTIC job with Valkyria Chronicles 3. If they’re collaborating with Sega again, I want in! Also, it’s on PS3 instead of a handheld or something, so there’s definitely an audience for it here in the West. AND Sega owns Atlus now; bringing over rpgs is kind of their thing.

    I am so crossing my fingers for this! PLEASE don’t let me down, Sega x Atlus!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      even though, I haven’t seen ATLUS USA brought any recent phantasy star series or another sega game that aren’t miku and sonic

    • ddsfan2

      To be fair, Chaos Rings was ported to the Vita, with directional pad and button controls. I don’t know why they put it on PlayStation Mobile instead of the regular Vita, but it performs perfectly fine, especially considering the staggering RAM limitations that PSM has relative to Vita native software.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Totally random, I know, but I now realize what your new avatar is, lol. I just started watching Voyager recently. Sorry, just wanted to point that out XD

        • ddsfan2

          Haha, yeah, Tuvok and The Doctor are my personal favorite characters in that show, even though the cast is rather uneven.

          • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

            So far, those are my favorites as well actually (partly because I saw the actor for the doctor appear in Deep Space Nine prior to watching this). Anyway, sorry for going off topic there. Can’t wait to find out when this new Shining game is going to be released though.

            I haven’t played one in what seems like forever due to lack of interest.

  • Earthjolly

    Localization %?

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      2, lol.

      • Elvick

        I’m an optimist.

        2.5%

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s sega, you know what

    • LordKaiser

      SEGA OA is like the old Namdai before being Bamco. They rerely bring their games here. TBH SEGA of America needs it’s staff to be replaced.

  • LordKaiser

    I can see these clothes on PS02.

  • DarthBrian

    Now managed,be nice to compile heart.

  • Ta23 Ta28

    Ask Witchcraft and Sony, not Media.Vision.
