SEGA Announces Shining Resonance Refrain Coming This Summer To The West on Nintendo Switch

SEGA has revealed today that Shining Resonance Refrain is heading to the west this summer on the Nintendo Switch. The game tells the tale of sword-wielding Yuma and his friends as they fight the Empire. This marks the return of the Shining series to the West for the first time in a decade. Here’s all the details you need to know:

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

Those who pre-order Shining Resonance Refrain on PS4, Xbox One X, and Nintendo Switch, will receive the game in a collectible metal slipcase, featuring character artwork of Excella, Sonia, and Kirika.

  1. The last shining game I played was on Gameboy advance, loved that game even tho I checked on it today and it got really bad reviews lol I’m excited to play this one just for old times sake


    1. The 1st and last Shining game I played was Shining Force EXA on PS2 many years ago. Nearly beaten it in my 5 day rental time. lol It had great gameplay but the story and VA were meh at best. So Im going to keep my eyes on this title and see wht everyone thinks of it when it does release.


      1. Yea it looks like story isn’t a huge focus for these games. I’m doing the same I’ll see how I feel about it I looked at PS3 gameplay u can do that too if u don’t wanna wait
