First look at Shining Resonance for PlayStation 3

New information on Media Vision's upcoming RPG.

Shining Resonance

Famitsu has gone up with its online preview for Shining Resonance, Sega’s newly announced PlayStation 3 RPG from Media Vision.

The preview offers first direct-feed screenshots and new details.

First, here’s the story outline:

In an ancient continent, a land of God known as “Alfheim” exists.

A long time has passed since the dragons who were once powerful in this world perished. Its souls were crystallized and scattered about the world.

However, a dragon survived. And its name is “Kouryuu Irvan.” Seeking the power of the lost dragon, the Imperial Army and Church powers, and now a “Dragon Slayer” who intends to harm the dragon, have begun to stir.

The one who saved the dragon from their clutches was a single “young girl.” And before long, warriors known as “Dragon Instrumentalists” began to gather under the dragon. The dragon recalled a childhood memory of a “young girl” who saved him when he was injured. It was a reunion of fate.

A beautiful and painful story about the girl and the dragon will be told.

Shining Resonance uses a real-time action battle system where players control a single character. There is a dragon in the party, and party members can fight by manipulating song.
