SEGA reveals Blade Arcus from Shining arcade fighting game

This isn’t what Shining Force fans were expecting.

Freshly announced at the Japan Amusement Expo is Blade Arcus from Shining, a new arcade fighting games from SEGA. Now I’m not too familiar with the Shining Force franchise, due to me siding with Nintendo during the console wars of the 90’s, but I have heard some great things about the game and not to mention the controversy with SEGA ordering take downs of anything related to the series so that their new trailer for a new iOS game could be the top searched video on You Tube. Regardless, the series is highly regarded as one of the best turn based tactics RPG ever made on the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis. Fans have been asking for a new game in the franchise for years, and now SEGA has answered that call….sort of. Here is the trailer for the upcoming arcade fighter:

I don’t think this is what fans expected SEGA to give them. Personally as a fighter it looks pretty good. I like the art style and the fighting looks really flashy. Hopefully the game will be able to stand up to all of the other anime style fighters that are out right now. But I predict that by having Shining Force in the title will bring in fans on that alone. The game will be releasing in Japanese arcades in the Spring and I predict that there will be a home release on the PS3 afterwards.
