New 'Shining' Game In The Works

And no, we're not talking about the movie starring Jack Nicholson, based on the book of the same name (although that would be awesome), we're talking, of course, about SEGA's premier RPG series. As reported by Japanese rag Famitsu, Tsuyoshi Sawada has confirmed that a new entry into the series will be announced soon.

"It's been 10 years since the Shining series was re-invented," said Sawada. "Currently, we're preparing a title that sums up the whole series and should provide an answer to users' curiosity. I can't give details yet, but I'd like to reveal it before we go too far into the future."

The Shining series was give ye olde reboot with Shining Soul in 2002, but it's been relatively quiet on that front since then. We're looking forward to seeing what direction the franchise heads in.

New Shining Game Announcement Coming Soon [1up]


    "The Shining series was give ye olde reboot with Shining Soul in 2002, but it’s been all quite on that front since then."

    Except for:
    - Shining Soul II
    - Shining Tears
    - Shining Force Neo and EXA
    - Shining Wind
    - Shining Force Feather
    - Shining Hearts

    Hell, Shining Wind even got an anime tie-in a few years back. It was pretty awful though.

    Shining series degenerated into typical JRPG bullshit after the third game. No sleep will be lost after the next one hits.

    They should at least have a character named Johnny with axe specialisation and war cry "Heeeere's Johnny!!!" that gives +3 door destruction.

    Ahhh. I stil crack out Shining Force 2 for a run through every year or so.

    Browser based social game.

    I'd say I'm looking forward to this but I don't want to be disappointed like with FF13.
