Sega will bring Shining Resonance: Refrain to US this Summer

The Shining series got its start all the way back in 1991, which is when Sega released Shining in the Darkness for its Genesis console. The publisher has since added more than a dozen new games to the franchise, but American audiences haven’t had a chance to play a new Shining game since 2007’s Shining Force EXA.

But that’ll all change this Summer, as Sega has announced that Shining Resonance: Refrain will be released in the US for the PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One this Summer.

Shining Resonance: Refrain is a real-time action game with music-based attacks that Sega punningly refers to as the B.A.N.D. System. Players will also need to help their team socialize during events and dates to attain “Resonance” on the battlefield for even more powerful attacks.

Yuma has the soul of the Shining Dragon within him, transforming into the ancient beast by unleashing the power conducted through his sword. Dragons, long thought to be extinct, make Yuma a target for the Empire. To use him against the kingdom of Astoria, The Empire captures Yuma. Sonia, princess of Astoria, launches a rescue mission with the help of the Dragoneers. Hearing about the plight of Astoria and their fight to save their land, Yuma decides to aid them. Typically timid, will he find the courage to realize the strength he has within him?

Shining Resonance was originally released for the PS3 in Japan in 2014, and Refrain will add a number of remastered options to the game, including English and Japanese voices, all previously-released DLC, and a Refrain Mode that adds new characters to the game.

Metal Gear Survive’s Launch Trailer is here

Metal Gear Survive launched today for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One tomorrow, and it’s the first game in the famed franchise since Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami in 2015.

But at the same time, it’s hard to look at Metar Gear Survive as a new entry in the series because Snake is nowhere to be seen, and players will instead take control of an unnamed soldier who battles interdimensional zombies while fortifying a military base.

Whichever side of the fence you fall on, the Launch Trailer for Metal Gear Survive is here, and it promises an action-packed adventure that might appeal to players who love the survival genre.

Burnout Paradise Remastered will race onto PS4, Xbox One in March; PC launch will hit the gas “later this year”

Electronic Arts want fans of the Burnout franchise to pack their bags, because they’ve got two tickets to paradise, and you can leave in just three weeks…

The publisher has announced that Burnout Paradise Remastered will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on March 16. The re-release will include all eight DLC packs (Big Surf Island, Cops & Robbers, Legendary Cars, Bikes, Toys, Party, Boost, and the Cagney Update), as well as support for 4K visuals at 60 frames per second on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.

In 2008, the original Burnout Paradise came roaring off the starting line ready to demolish the competition. Featuring breakneck racing, high-flying stunts, and — most importantly — shameless amounts of automotive destruction, Burnout Paradise set the bar for what an action racing game could be. And now, ten years later, it’s back and ready to show a new generation of consoles the true definition of a “smash hit.”

Burnout Paradise Remastered will also be released for the PC sometime later this year. But for now, everyone can watch the game’s first trailer, which has been embedded above.

THQ Nordic unveils a new gameplay trailer for Biomutant

THQ Nordic unveiled a brand new gameplay trailer for Biomutant this weekend, giving fans another look at the Action RPG’s futuristic setting.

In Biomutant, players will be able to select a series of “Mutant Powers, Bionics, and Weapons” to create their own unique character. As you can see from the trailer, these combinations can result in powerful climbers, ferocious warriors, or a bouncing feline wielding a pair of twin guns. It looks like players will also be able to pilot mechs, but you better watch out for a toothy swarm of blob monsters.

Biomutant is in development at Experiment 101, and it’ll be released later this year for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

New Retail Releases: Metal Gear Survive, Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, More

Just a handful of new games will be available on store shelves this week…

Konami will bring back the Metal Gear franchise (sort of) this week without Hideo Kojima in Metal Gear Survive for the PS4 and Xbox One. Snake is taking the day off, and instead, players will have to build up their defenses and attempt to survive an onslaught from a horde of interdimensional monsters.

Also set to launch this week is Bandai Namco’s Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet. The action RPG will be available for the PS4 and (for the first time) the Xbox One, and this time players will be able to engage in gunplay against the giant bosses.

Finally this week, PS4 and Xbox One owners will get to chance to purchase Rad Rodgers, a side-scrolling shooter about a 90s kid and a foul-mouthed game console, and Past Cure, a “dark psychological thriller that blurs the lines between dreams and reality.”

That’s it for now, but we’ll be back later this week with a look at every new addition to the digital storefronts on the PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
