Shining Force FC

The last Game Gear Shining Force game, Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict takes place in between the mainline Genesis / Mega Drive titles Shining Force I and II and — as you'd expect — features many, many, fan-pleasing plot threads, characters and general references to the events in both of those games.

Why are we telling you this? Well, the game has just been released on the 3DS Virtual Console in Japan, and we've been putting it through its paces in preparation for a full Matters of Import write up, which is coming very soon. In the meantime, please enjoy the grid-tastic first half hour of this classic handheld adventure.
