Shining Series Gets Its Fighting Game On
So you have played inserts from Sega's tactical role-playing series Shining. But have you ever considered duking it out in a 2D fighting environment with some of your favorite characters from the franchise? If not, then consider Sega's newest fighting game experience Blade Arcus. Expecting to hit Japanese arcades later this summer, players will be able to do fight each other on-screen, pitting familiar and new Shining characters not only against one another but also in a new light of battle.
Notably, character designer of the Shining series, Tony Taka, will reprise his role in character creation. The trailer also suggests that there will be at least ten characters in Blade Arcus. Let's hope, however, that the roster gets extended so that Kureha from Shining Wind and Kaguya from Shining Hearts are accounted for.
