SEGA has released a new story trailer for Shining Resonance Refrain, the remaster of 2014’s JRPG Shining Resonance, that introduces us to the ancient story of the holy island of Alfheim. In addition, a playable demo is now available on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Shining Resonance Refrain tells the tale of sword-wielding Yuma and his friends as they fight the Empire. Yuma has the soul of the Shining Dragon within him, transforming into the ancient beast by unleashing the power conducted through his sword. Dragons, long thought to be extinct, make Yuma a target for the Empire. To use him against the kingdom of Astoria, The Empire captures Yuma. Sonia, princess of Astoria, launches a rescue mission with the help of the Dragoneers. Hearing about the plight of Astoria and their fight to save their land, Yuma decides to aid them.
Previously released on PS3 only in Japan, Shining Resonance Refrain features dual audio with English and Japanese voices. In addition to all of the original’s DLC, now included as part of the base “Original Mode”, Shining Resonance Refrain packs a new “Refrain Mode”, unlocking the Imperial Princess Excella and Dragonslayer Jinas as party members for a new experience.
Shining Resonance Refrain releases on the 10th of July on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch, and will be available for $49.99. Those who purchase the launch edition of Shining Resonance Refrain will receive the game in a collectible metal slipcase, featuring character artwork of Excella, Sonia, and Kirika.
