Liberate the soul of the dragon within you this summer, as a remaster of the original Shining Resonance hits shelves! Shining Resonance Refrain will arrive this summer on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Originally only released in Japan, it features dual audio (English/Japanese) voices, and contains all of the original DLC, now included in the base “Original Mode”. It also includes a “Refrain mode” which unlocks the IMperial Princess Excella and Dragonslayer Jinas as party members for a brand new experience. It’s recommended you play this second to avoid spoilers for the Original Mode!
Featuring real-time action, it’s important to utilize each party members unique abilities while also deepening a relationship with them. Through events and dates, you’ll get to know party members to unlock their full potential on the battlefield. Depending on the bonds of your team, “Resonance” may occur, providing an all-new level of support, which can lead to outstanding victories. Dragoneers wield Armonics, ancient weapon-instruments, in order to perform mystical and powerful Rune Songs. Once you build enough BPM (Battle Performance Mana), your party will be able to perform a session through the B.A.N.D. system. Depending on which song you play and which character you set at the center, your party will be able to indulge in various beneficial effects. Certain characters may even perform the song in a special costume!
There is also the Draconic Launch edition for PS4/XB1/Switch in a collectible metal slipcase, featuring the artwork for Excella, Sonia, and Kirika.
