Shining Resonance Refrain

Sega has released a new story trailer for Shining Resonance Refrain.

Here is an overview of the game’s story, via Sega:

It has been one thousand years since the great war of Ragnarok. Dragons are thought long extinct—their crystalized souls spread across the land. Ten years ago, the Empire of Lombardia declared war on the Kingdom of Astoria. The Empire invaded Alfheim, but Astoria has managed to hold its ground. The Empire of Lombardia, scheming to obtain the lost power of ancient dragons, assigned a special mission to the Church’s elite knight squad: Beowulf. Their sights were set on capturing Yuma Ilvern—a boy with a dragon’s soul entwined with his own… the Shining Dragon himself, the most powerful of all dragons. Imprisoned, tortured, and lost in despair, Yuma was trapped in darkness and in chains… until a gallant girl burst into his cell, determined to break him out. He could never have imagined the battles that lay in store…

Shining Resonance Refrain is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on July 10. In Japan, it is already available for PlayStation 4 and will launch for Switch on July 12. A demo is available now for consoles.
