Nothing but dragon and weapon artwork for now, though.

Sega has opened the teaser website for Shining Resonance.

Shining Resonance

The upcoming PlayStation 3 RPG is developed by Media Vision, best known for handling the Wild Arms series (as well as the upcoming Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth). Tony Taka is handling character design, while Flight Unit is doing the in-game models.

The protagonist of the story is a dragon. Transitions between field and battle are said to be seamless, and the game uses a real-time action battle system. Traveling together with your comrades, you’ll fight and play melodies using dragon blade instruments that when played can trigger powerful techniques in resonance with the dragon.

If you missed yesterday’s update on the title, catch it here.

    Dragon and weapon artwork is as good as anything right now, so I’ll take it :p

  • DrForbidden

    I just noticed the dragon is ‘holding’ the broadsword… o_0

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

      That was the first thing I noticed when he was revealed, lol. I’m not sure how he will use it though. It could just be a conductor for magic, electricity, etc. instead though.

      • DrForbidden

        Headbutts? :P

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

          That would look silly, lol. He’s got all this weight, claws, and can probably breathe fire, ice, or something like that, and he wants to headbutt his enemy? XD

      The first thing I saw that sword on his head, I immediately starts to look for the dragon rider there.

  • Timberman

    I dont see no dragon “holding” the broadsword. I see the sword is more like a horn in the forehead.. cause you can see all four legs on the dragon. Or am I missing something?

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

      No, you’re right. I’m not sure why he chose the word “holding” either since it’s just stuck in his head, lol.

    • DrForbidden

      Well, I wrote ‘holding’, not holding. It’s just wordplay, like saying my cat likes ‘holding onto my controller’ even though he’s obviously just using it as a pillow.

  • EternaLBleedinG

    Hmm the horn looks like one of those weapons and maybe just maybeeee….. he can swap his horn with a different weapon.

      Watch him transform later in the game and he’s suddenly holding the hilt of the weapon :p

    Wow! Artwork is glorious! but it seems quite odd for the dragon using a sword that is embedded on his head. If at all, I’d use more of the human characters in combat than a dragon using his head for an attack. but who knows? it just might happen to change into a human character mid-way in game.

    7 confirmed playable characters?

    This sounds so good. ;_;

    Cool , need to bookmark

  • bloodiOS

    Sony should pull some strings and convince Sega to localize this.

    • DrForbidden

      Knowing Sega, Sony’ll need chains, not strings…

  • Aurizen

    English Release!

    >Sega

    This is the most interested I’ve been in a new game for quite some time – and it’s last gen.

    It’s looking great.
