Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon is a 2004 handheld remake of the Megadrive/Genesis game Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention. It features an expanded plot, three new playable characters, three new battles and various other tweaks to the gameplay.
The game also features a new ‘ramping difficulty’ system, where every time a play-through is completed the player is awarded a star and enemies get a boost in stats for the next play-through.
Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon is one of the best turn-based tactical Role-Playing Games available for the Game Boy Advance and has been re-released a number of times, including for the Wii U and for iOS. It’s a classic GBA game that is still worth playing today.
The game was developed by Amusement Vision and published by Atlus in North America and Sega in Japan and Europe.
