A Shining mobile game gets it's own dedicated site! For me, this is a good sign that Sega are gearing up the series, in addtion to publishing Feather.

Shining Wind Fan Festa:

Any idea what this is about? Some kind of fan service game? :confused:

The PC is mentioned, so perhaps it's a DVD-ROM of fan materials.

Is Shining Wind a direct sequel to Shining Tears? i.e. featuring the same characters / a continuation of the Shining Tears story (not that I know what that is), or is it just a game in the same style?

Also, has anyone who has played Shining Wind advise whether it is possible to play without being able to read Japanese - I played Shining Force 3 that way, even before all the translations were up here, but it was easy because of the 'Shiny' interface. Is Wind similarly intuitive?

Good news on the website though - at least it shows the series hasn't be forgotten!


*edit* also is Shining Wind X different to Shining Wind - or just it's actual name?

Shining Wind X is a new mobile phone game.

Shining Wind is a PS2 game that came out in 2007.


To answer your question, it's an action RPG so it's perfectly playable in Japanese, just like Shining Tears.

Here...

Shining Tears -> Shining Wind -> X/Festa

X continues the story after Wind for Souma and the former Tears squad in the fantasy world. Festa continues the story (or more like gives a better ending) for Kiriya, Kureha and Seena who went back to the real world and
WARNING: SPOILER!


Sigh, wish they port both to the NDS or PS2 as a compilation or something.... I have Festa and yes I enjoyed the epilouge, but no way I can get X and see how the others are doing, since Souma still has stuff to do and Zero's issues haven't really been resolved 100%.

Souma... I hope he's less depressed than in the original.

So... We got ANOTHER old style SF game.

Strategy with old style gameplay like everyone wanted.

It's just only available on Japanese phones.

Excuse me for a minute.

Old school gameplay don't sell, Shining force resurrection of Dark dragon didn't sell well. Out of Fire emblem, old school Tactical RPG don't sell.
The future of the Tactical RPG, it's modern tactical RPG like Valkyria Chronicles.
Shining blade had the best beginning of the saga in japan (and is already the 3rd most selling Shining game in japan after Hearts et Force 2)
