Lets be honest here.

Shining Blade looks pretty cool.

Another Japan-only modern Shining title for the PSP.

Julian was in Shining the Holy Ark as a child before Shining Force III as an adult, so that would still be a variance on the original storyline.

Or it could be that Shining blade take place few times before Shining Holy Ark, we can't be sure.


Sawada has said it himself that his games are a revision of the old series.

only for the design and gameplay, not the story.

I don't think he needs to say it for the story. It clearly doesn't match up.

No, it's match. Actually Shining Blade(and the precedent Shining made by sawada) could clearly be the sequel of the first Shining force

Don't forget Force Neo, Exa, Feather and Cross have not be made by Sawada. The producer of these games said they where brand new story in a different world. only them are a reimagination of the Saga.

the story of Sawada Shining fit very well to the genesis Shining.

Sawada said Shining Tears is part of the Shining universe as the old Shining. And all the Swada Shining are clearly part of the same universe.

And Tamaki even said he could do all he wanted on the first Shining Soul because it was asked to him to stay very true to the original games.

But I am talking about this in the Shining series topic.

That statement is the definition of irony, since the first Shining Soul butchered the story, horribly.

the First Shining Soul have not butchered anything, It was a prequel to every Shining, the game was set 1000 years before Shining force.

Guy 1: Let's have the player fight every boss from the previous Shining games.

Guy 2: Ok. Cool. How are we going to explain it, story-wise?

Guy 1: I don't know! Who cares!? Just shoe-horn them in there!

QFT. There were certainly conflicts and inconsistencies. The fact you have elected to ignore them is not our problem.

This is not an invitation for a debate, we WILL get back on, and stay on the topic being THIS game. Not revisionism of what Tsuyoshi Sawada has said, and done.

"All of Tony Taka's women look exactly the same apart from clothing and hairstyle. And even that gets some samey-ness since they're all apparently wearing fetish gear, or appear to be cosplaying [i]as themselves, in their own game"

"cosplaying themselves" haha good one XD
