Sega’s Tsuyoshi Sawada has teased a new entry in the publisher’s acclaimed role-playing game series, Shining. Speaking with the latest Famitsu, Sawada mentioned an upcoming title in the franchise that ‘sums up the series as a whole’.
“It’s been ten years since the Shining series was re-invented,” Sawada commented. “Currently, we’re preparing a title that sums up the whole series and should provide an answer to users’ curiosity. I can’t give details yet, but I’d like to reveal it before we go too far into the future.
“Shining is a long-running series, but development work largely stopped on it for a period of time,” he added. “We redeveloped and resurrected the name as Sega shifted from hardware to software, and the goal for the games I’ve worked on is to target a large swath of the userbase and do something that hasn’t been done before with the series. That’s still the direction I take today.”
