THQ has today released the first information on Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon for the Game Boy Advance. Currently in development at Sega, the game is the latest in the long-running Shining Force series of role-playing games that debuted on the Sega Genesis back in 1992.
Resurrection of the Dark Dragon features a story that was written by staff that worked on the original Shining Force and will boast a number of improvements over previous games in the series. Battles in the game will be even more tactical than those in previous titles and will employ a new Unique Card System. Resurrection of the Dark Dragon will also feature three characters that have never appeared in a Shining Force title before.
THQ plans to release Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon in Europe in April. No North American release date has been announced at this time. We'll bring you more information on the game as soon as it becomes available.
