Shining Force has historically been Sega's strategy RPG series, comparable to Fire Emblem, with most titles found on the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, or Sega Saturn. While there have been some Shining titles in the HD era, such as Shining Resonance, it has been a while since there has been a new entry specifically with the 'Shining Force' name - not since 2009's Shining Force Feather for Nintendo DS.
