Once again, it seems Europe will be getting a new game in the Shining series before North America (Shining Soul was released in Europe well before it was here). This time however, it's in the form of the Genesis classic Shining Force.
Much like their deal in North America, THQ will be co-publishing upcoming Sega GBA titles. While most have been announced previously such as a handful of Sonic titles and Shining Soul II (which may make it to NA if Atlus is pleased with sales of the first), this marks the first time Shining Force has been mentioned on the GBA.
No specific date was mentioned, though the publishing deal is to begin this winter, so Shining Force could be released as early as January or February 2004. Of course, THQ has yet to announce anything regarding a North American release, but we'll keep you updated if and when they do.
