Shining Blade's Promo Movie
And some playable character tidbits.
01.08.12 - 12:17 AM

SEGA's next installment in the Shining series is the PSP title Shining Blade, an action RPG whose battle system has already been compared to that of Valkyria Chronicles. You might have read a bit on the main character Rage already, but the game is supposed to have a pretty big playable cast. In fact, according to the game's official Twitter feed, you're not forced to keep him in the party at all times. Sometimes you'll require certain characters in your party for story reasons though. However there'll be some kind of system in place so that if you neglect certain characters, they won't end up too far behind the characters that you do use more.

Below is the game's promotional video.

Shining Blade hits Japanese shelves on March 15th.
