The game’s “dense story” revolves around two protagonists, Ryuga and Pairon, and intertwines with the characters of the Shining series.
Battles are tag-based. Players select a primary character, as well as a second character. You can only switch between the two amid rounds, but you can also call on your partner for help using Link Attacks.
First-print copies of Blade Arcus from Shining EX will include Shining Resonance‘s Sonia as a playable character.
Blade Arcus from Shining EX will launch for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan on November 26.
