Depends. It's been long enough since Shining Force Diablo that a 4p psp one wouldn't be a bad idea.
If it's one of those Shining Forces, then do no want. EXA was one of the worst rpgs I played on the PS2.


And yay half-minute hero 2!

Wasn't there a really poorly received pseudo-spiritual sequel to Half Minute Hero done by the developers recently?

Jikan de Phantasia. But it was a totally different kind of game.

I only played the first one for a few hours, but it was fun. I think shouta was a fan of both.

I mean an srpg would be rad, but sort of don't expect that anymore.

Probably I've read it wrong and it's a Shining Heart game and not Shining Force

I'm going to edit the OP

Okay, it was probably in the last Famitsu thread, but does anyone know what Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbaride Card Battle Taisen for the DS scored? Might be in this issue, not sure.

EDIT: Never mind. 7/8/8/7. Not horrible at all.

Shining Hearts.... lol I bet it's another Sega trap. I wonder what Musketeer is. I also see Last Story there as I expected, since it was in Jump.

OK thanks - didn't know what it was so I thought you already knew it was a Shining Force game. So the mystery continues...
Sega trademarked SHINING WIND but not Shining Heart, so maybe it's not even a Sega game?

1. Hardcore Gaming 101's going to do a short spot on Time Of Fantasia, meaning I can actually find out what it's like!

2. Half-Minute Hero 2 WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It's the best PSP game, people. It's science!

Time Of Fantasia, done without the help of the many collaborators who worked on Half-Minute Hero. This means we need information about helpers RIGHT NOW.

What is any good? Just assumed it had a chance to come out in North America since every other Shining series game ( that I know of anyway) after the Saturn era seemed to release here.

It was actually really good for a game that had Shining Force in it that wasn't developed by Neverland or Amusement Vision. It was a SRPG, but with only five controlled characters without block movement. I enjoyed it for what I played.

It's Shining Hearts. There's a scan out now. It's a traditional RPG, looks totally generic like all Shining games these days.

You sure that's Shining Hearts? It might just be the poor quality of the pic, but that looks like a &#12472; to me.

The scan is out. The logo says Shining Hearts in English.

Shouldn't the Sonic games have taught you that a long time ago?

There is nothing wrong with Sonic games, it's just fan perception that makes them seem bad!!!! :lol

Shining Hearts zzzzzzzzzzzz

Sega never learns anything

That is one awful logo - a heart with a key through it???
And graphics look very nondescript.

Danganronbo looks much more interesting to me.

That only applies to the two Adventure games, it doesn't account for everything after them.
