Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Famitsu - Shining Force coming to Wii

Hopefully it will happen.
If so, that is a Day 0 buy for me ... so long as it resembles the SF of old and not the SF of PS2.

Day 0 = pre-buy
Day -1 = getting a copy before released

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

Cry-On is Mistwalker's next game. Mistwalker isn't Nibris, when they announce titles they actually release them. Magna Carta 2 is defiinitey the sketchier of the two though, I'll concede that. Calling Cry-On vaporware though is complete and utter BS though.

 


Even the most reputable companies will sometimes announce titles and then quietly cancel them. It's all part of the business.

Either way, hearing nothing at all about a game for 2+ years isn't just "sketchy;" 90% of the time, it's proof positive that the game will never be released.

EDIT: Also, I just checked Mistwalker's website just to be sure. Cry-On isn't even listed on its developer's official website. If that, in combination with the fact that it was announced nearly three years ago, isn't proof of the game's vaporware status, then I don't know what is.



"'Casual games' are something the 'Game Industry' invented to explain away the Wii success instead of actually listening or looking at what Nintendo did. There is no 'casual strategy' from Nintendo. 'Accessible strategy', yes, but ‘casual gamers’ is just the 'Game Industry''s polite way of saying what they feel: 'retarded gamers'."

Meh. The Shining Force games suck.

 

Just in case you didn't know, the PS2 Force games aren't true Shining Force games. Normally the SRPGs got the Force title. Everything else in the Shining Universe didn't. They messed up on the last two PS2 games by giving them Force titles.

Naa they didn't, well for us maybe but not for them since it probably made the game sell alot more then would without the "Force" word.

 

Yeah, thats what I think too. They made it a Force title to try to draw the old crowd back. It might have helped to sell more, but it might have ruined the Force brand. Lots of PS2 players don't know what a true Shining Force game is. If the game isn't to their liking, they might stay away from all future Force games and it's not even what Shining Force is really like.

 

This is me. 



Camelot should just work on Golden Sun Wii



MikeB predicts that the PS3 will sell about 140 million units by the end of 2016 and triple the amount of 360s in the long run.

I believe Sega still owns the rights to the "Shining" series, so it's likely that they are.

Sorry, I read the whole thing and there s NO MENTION of a Wii version.

It's all about DS version...

I couldn't find any mention of an unannounced Wii Shining Force game either.

Yup, thats pretty much my case, That NEO game left a bad taste in my mouth and i am not touching anything That series has to offer.

 

They say this series was SEGA's answer to Nintendo's Fire Emblem, Wow how is this a big insult to FE >:(.
