Today Sega updated the official website of the upcoming Shining Resonance PS4 remaster Shining Resonance Refrain, including a ton of juicy screenshots.
We get to see artwork for all the members of the main cast, and a further look at the Refrain Mode that will allow us to deepen our relationship with Excela Noa Aura and Jenius Aeon.
On top of that, more screenshots show the action battles topped by the D-Tune system. We’ll be able to freely control a member of the party with combos, unique special attacks, and magic.
The hero Yuma can also change into a dragon at any time during combat, but if he strains his limits he can lose control of his powers, and go berserk.
Kirika can use the Sacred Song changing into a variety of costumes appropriate to each song, she will then keep them on for the rest of the battle.
The BAND system lets you select a member of the party as the “center” of your group. When using the sacred song after the BPM gauge grows, the effect will vary according to who is the center.
We also see the relationship diagram, that displays how close each character is depending on their personality. The longer they’re together, the deeper that relationship grows. This influences the “resonance” attacks that will occur randomly during battle, allowing characters to support each other.
The game will release in Japan on March 29th, 2018, exclusively for PS4. According to a recent interview, it might even come west.
