New Shining game announcement coming tonight

Timing coincides with tonight's Nintendo direct.

Shining Blade

A new Shining game will be announced tomorrow morning (Japan time), series producer Tsuyoshi Sawada teased on Twitter.

“Tomorrow there will be a little announcement, so fans please look forward to it.,” said in a tweet. “You’ll know it when it becomes morning. We’re trying out a new genre with the Shining series. Starting with this, I’ll be doing a lot of things this year.”

Sawada added, “The project that will be announced tomorrow is not an RPG. I’ve changed our [Twitter] icon to a meaningful image.”

The Twitter icon mentioned was changed to artwork from Shining Blade, which launched in March for PSP in Japan.

Tonight’s Nintendo Direct is actually 7 a.m. tomorrow morning in Japan. The timing coincides nicely with the Sawada’s tease. Perhaps we’ll hear about the new game during the broadcast?

The latest entry in the series, Shining Ark, launched for PSP in Japan last February.
