Sega has just put up a site announcing a sequel to the Shining Force Series, as of yet the details of platforms are unknown.
Not that it's a bad system, but I'd like the flagship of the series on a home console. I have all three, so it doesn't matter which. I'm very excited about this. I love this series ALMOST as much as Wild Arms - and that's saying a lot. What a great year to be a gamer!!!
Same here. I have a DS, but when a sequel to great franchises comes out, I'd rather have them on a next gen system. Although if it used the touch functionality of the DS correctly it could still be good i.e. Zelda Phantom Hourglass
there is a pretty good chance this is another handheld title, It could be for the psp too. We'll just have to wait and see.
Is Sega working on any other PS3 game right now? I guess they are localising Yakuza 3 and publishing End of Eternity, but I don't think they are developing anything for PS3 right now. So maybe it will be on PS3. Hope so, I don't care if it's multiplat, as long as it's a proper next-gen RPG.
Its so funny just the other day my friend was talking to me about how much he loved shining force. An I was like never heard of it but it seemed like something I would like. An I saw the new one Feather for the DS an was like dang I wish they would make one for PS3 an he was like hell yea. Now it might actually happen what are the chances.
As a longtime series fan I SINCERELY hope SEGA doesn't screw us over like Shining Force 3 on the Saturn. If you're going to bring such a huge game over from Japan, TRANSLATE ALL OF THE GAME, NOT JUST THE FIRST DISC!! Now that that's out of the way, I hope they're having Camelot Software develop it to bring back that classic sound and visual style, similar to the Golden Sun games if you're not sure what I'm talking about. And PLEASE, don't let Amusement Vision make it. They've neutered the series since it was on the Saturn. Also, please go back to the tried and true strategy combat, as slow as it can be for people these days. This is a Shining FORCE game, not some game in a series that seems to have no aim. There are standards that should be adhered to. I hope I'm not alone in thinking so.
I hope its a true sequel to the Shinning Force series (a strategy rpg). It would also be great if they could sign a deal with Camelot Software Planning (formerly Sonic Software Planning) to develop the game.
It will awesome if the game turn into PS3, I don't mind a multiplatform if the game is good.
I HOPE THIS GAME COME FOR PS3.... WHY THIS ALWAYS MAKING A SEGA PS3 GAME PRO AND SO LAST SEE AND VALKIRIA AND YAKUZA 3.
But wasn't there a Shining Force Gear game rumored for the wii? It was in famitsu and on the blog of the developer or something. Long time ago I believe. And this is just the teaser website.I hate it when they do that.Give us something.
I wonder if it could be a PSP game because so many have been bringing out PSP games as of late. Also Phantasy Star Portable sold really well for Sega on the PSP so I could see Sega wanting to get those kinds of sales again.
I don't think sega will make the same mistake as SE and launch their more popular japanese titles(Yakuza,valkarie chronicles) on the 360, so its likey to be one the PS3 in my opinion..
I must say Sega has been on a good role as of late.
Just give us Shenmue 3.
they better have some good voice actors
rpgs dont do well or play well on the x360 and sony has been kiiling in japan and wants to keep that momentum. thats why ff7 is on psn, thats why ff movie has a big demo and is packed with ps3. the time for the legend has come. this is ps3, this is living.
Be careful what you wish for i'd say . If it's of the same level of quality yea a ps3 shining force would rock . However i doubt it ... it will probably be another crappy game from the same guys ruining Shining force on PS2 ...
It's Shining Force Cross for Wii and it'll be a terrible mash X to win game, not a SRPG. Shining Force is dead, long live Valkyria, I hope.
Well i never thought it would be a SRPG after the awful DS , gba and PS2 games ... I remember that interview where basically the producer of the god awful shining force Neo said that SRPG werent "next gen" enough , and that SF had to evolve into another genre . And sadly even thought they are so wrong , decent but not great sales of pure jewels such as Valkyria chronicles makes him a bit right . They wouldnt dare use the established franchise for what it's mostly known , but instead use every last drop of it to milk crappy action games .
I really hope this is available for the PS3 and that it goes back to its roots as a SRPG. It would be sweet if they used a modified version of the engine used in VC.
Would be something special. Hope they have the same art style as the previous first 2. After this game hopefully a new Phantasy Star could begin development.
geez... i remember i played this still, i dont have a clue about it, can some1 tell me about this? thx :)
I'm the annoying mr negative here .. but dont hold you're breath . The old style phantasy star is dead . it never really was major , and the Online version had bigger success . The next PH Star will definitely be a mmo again . At least , last time they had a pretty decent story solo mode , one that is quite overlooked and was actually better than most current solo next gen jrpgs (wich isnt saying much but still...) And i dont see Shining going back to it's roots . hell those werent even roots to begin with , the franchise started as a pseudo king's field/wizardy , and quickly became the SRPG we love . The shining tears/wind serie , the less crappy of the ps2 bunch sold ok , mostly thanks to the rep of Tony taka , of hentai art cg fame . And indeed his work was quite beautiful and well used , but in a pretty subpar game , whose only work was the multi and Tka's designs . The Neo sold less , but still managed to fool SF fanatics and hopeful at first , but thankfully tanked outside of japan . I wouldnt mind SF evolving , if at least it remained good , like Phantasy Star ... but here it's not so much a genre clash , and us old geezers being annoying with our nostalgia .. but the fact that those new games arent even good .
