Shining Soul, Sega's new Game Boy Advance RPG, is set for a March 28, 2002 release
in Japan. Little is known at this time about how the game relates to the series. Past Shining
games have been consistently connected by a common world and mythos, though characters rarely make direct
Shining Soul utilizes a 3/4 overhead perspective with colorful hand-drawn backgrounds and sprites.
This edition most closely resembles Shining Wisdom in its perspective and use of real-time battles.
The game allows four players to collaborate simultaneously by linking GBAs.
Shining Soul will retail for 5800 yen, or approximately $47.00 U.S. No announcement of a North American release
has been made, but hopefully Sega will not disappoint fans this time around.
