There is a relevant tradition among Japanese developers, that compels them to provide original artwork for retailer-specific bonuses for their games. An important element of this tradition, is that the artwork is normally quite sexy, often much sexier than the game that inspired it. Since Shining Resonance Refrain is designed by Tony Taka, who is already known as an artist that doesn’t exactly shy away from alluring art, you can probably already imagine what you’ll see in the gallery below.
Today Sega released a nice batch of image showcasing the art Tony Taka has been working on for the store-specific bonuses, and as usual, it’s absolutely charming, showcasing the heroines in their swimwear.
It’ll be applied to tapestries, keychains, posters, smartphone wallpapers, mouse pads, microfiber cloths, and postcards, much to the joy of Japanese fans.
If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s a PS4 remaster of the 2014 PS3 JRPG Shining Resonance, with the addition of a few gameplay elements and improvements.
Shining Resonance Refrain will release in Japan on March 29th, 2018, exclusively for PS4. According to a recent interview, it might even come west.
