Shining Soul II: shiny shots, too
1st May 2003 | 16:09
More classic RPG adventuring from Sega Japan, with bigger locations, new character classes, four-player battling and more. Oh yes, it's big, big in Japan, tonight. It's big in Japan, all right...
Shining Soul was a splendid wee action RPG in the first instance and now Sega is gearing up to release the sequel, Shining Soul II, in Japan in July.
According to sources in Japan, this is even better to play than the original, spanning a larger world, offering better visuals, a four-player link-up multiplayer facility and gameplay with plenty of chewy RPG meat.
There are eight characters with various jobs - from the usual swordsmaster and bow queen, to Ninja's and weird-looking necromancer-types - with names like Bloodstart and Raizen, to scary ones like Pamela and Alex...
We'll be pestering Sega on this and other items it has left off its yearly release shedule soon, and demand to know why. If you're into Import games and can handle the Japanese text in your conversations with NPCs, then keep a look out on July 3 when it's released.
