Shihing series! Memories…When I heard that a new “Shining” game is coming for the Sony’s portable machine, the first thing that came into my mind was the awesome “Shining the Holy Ark” Sega Saturn’s jRPG! The game is similar to the Harvest Moon (牧場物語) and Animal Crossing (どうぶつの森) titles meaning that it will feature some similar game mechanics. Japanese videogame journalists often call these titles like Life (生活系ゲームっぽい) or Life Simulation Role Playing games. The character design was directed by Tony Taka (田中 貴之), his work can be found in other “Shining” games and many eroge and doujinshi titles. Music by Hiroki kikuta (菊田 裕) Secret of Mana’s (Seiken Densetsu) well known game’s composer. Sadly I don’t know if an English version release will happen, but I will let you know.
