SHINING FORCE 2 for GENESIS
Shining Force 2 is a strategy/RPG by Sega, released for the Sega
Genesis in 1994. It's very much like the original Shining Force. You
control your very own army across vast battlefields. The battles
take place on a flat terrain. Most of the time you fight on land and
other times you fight in temples or caves. Your job is to command
your army to defeat the enemy army. You start out with three
soldiers and by the end of the game you end up with 28. An awesome
cinematic sequence is displayed when you encounter an enemy. Your
army and enemy armies are made up of knights, wizards, warriors, and
archers. Not all of them are human; there are centaurs, birdmen,
wolf men, robots, half-breeds, and other strange looking creatures.
Each character has their strengths and weaknesses. Your characters
are able to be promoted, making them able to wield stronger weapons
and have stronger attacks. Also when they are promoted, they look different and attack in different ways.
SHINING FORCE 2 TRIBUTE for NINTENDO DS?
Shining Force 2 Tribute is a fan remake of Shining Force 2 for the Nintendo DS. The person behind this project is a Brazilian programmer, Renato Bittencourt. He's adding new graphics, music, characters, secrets, and more to the 1994 Mega Drive tactical RPG. Though he says this is purely a fan project, he has also talked with Ubisoft and Tectoy Digital about possibly releasing the game through Brazilís curious Zeebo console (I doubt Sega will allow this). Renato plans to release a demo ROM soon, and eventually hopes to put out the game as episodes in English. Heís still finishing the remakeís engine, but heís already spent all of 2009-2010 working on the game. I have screen shots here, and check out my Movie Clips section for a gameplay video.
