Shining Resonance Refrain is coming to the Americas and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC this summer, Sega announced. It will cost 49.99 USD / $64.99 CAD.

In Japan, Shining Resonance Refrain is due out for PlayStation 4 on March 29.

Here is an overview of the game, via Sega:

Remastered with New Refrain Mode

Shining Resonance Refrain remasters the original Shining Resonance, previously released on PlayStation 3 only in Japan, and features dual audio with English and Japanese voices. In addition to all of the original’s DLC, now included as part of the base “Original Mode,” Shining Resonance Refrain packs a new “Refrain Mode,” unlocking the Imperial Princess Excella and Dragonslayer Jinas as party members for a new experience – just be sure to save this for your second playthrough to avoid any spoilers!

With real-time action combat, it will be important to utilize each party member’s unique abilities and strengths while deepening relationships with each character. Through events and dates, get to know your party members to unlock their full potential on the battlefield! Depending on the bonds of the characters, “Resonance” may occur between them, providing a new level of support, leading to victory.


Master the B.A.N.D. System

Dragoneers wield Armonics, ancient weapon-instruments, in order to perform mystical and powerful Rune Songs. Once you build enough BPM (Battle Performance Mana), your party will be able to perform a session through the B.A.N.D. system. Depending on which song you play and which character you set at the center, your party will be able to indulge in various beneficial effects. Certain characters may even perform the song in a special costume!


Draconic Launch Edition

I don't know, there's a history with nintendo that when they release multiplatform stuff on their consoles they bomb.

But I have to recognise that I would like to play this one on switch more than any other.

Also this is the first game they localize since the ones in ps2 right?

Knowing Sega, they lost all the source code for SF3 by now.

As for this game... i went on youtube to see gameplay and it's a pass for me. Looks incredibly boring.

Lately with the switch, ports have been doing extremely well. Super Meat Boy on the switch sold very well considering it's been out for years. Same with Disgaea 5.

Is Sega really that bad to keep their own IPs / source code? If Square Enix managed to release Secret of Mana remake, so can Sega. Not necessary Shining Force 1, 2, & 3, but also other classics Phantasy Star 1, 2, 3 & 4 as well.

If I recall correctly there were remakes for Phantasy Star I and II in the sega ages series back in the ps2. There were plans for a localisation and a remake for Phantasy Star IV in a trilogy package but was cancelled.

Would have been interesting that psiv remake.
