On This Day In Gaming History!: March 22nd, 2018

Shining Force CD was a 1994 strategy role-playing game developed by Sonic! Software Planning for the Sega CD, and a remake of the games Shining Force Gaiden and Shining Force Gaiden II that were originally for the Game Gear. It was released in North America on March 22nd, 1995.

The gameplay mechanics are identical to those of the Shining Force Gaiden games. The player progresses through a series of turn-based tactical battles interspersed with short cutscenes. Between cutscenes the player is allowed to save the game, promote characters, resurrect fallen characters, and sometimes buy and sell weapons and healing items.


On release, GamePro gave Shining Force CD a mixed review. They praised the quality of the strategic gameplay and graphic perspectives, but were critical of the fact that the game doesn’t significantly differ from its predecessors Shining Force and Shining Force II in either of those elements.
