Sega has released a brand new story trailer for Shining Resonance Refrain, detailing more about the story leading up to the start of the game and the plight of the main character, Yuma.
The trailer gives us a bit of a lore drop to start with, before diving into some gameplay of town exploration and combat. Here’s a quick overview of the game via Sega, and you can watch the trailer down below.
“It has been one thousand years since the great war of Ragnarok. Dragons are thought long extinct—their crystalized souls spread across the land. Ten years ago, the Empire of Lombardia declared war on the Kingdom of Astoria. The Empire invaded Alfheim, but Astoria has managed to hold its ground. The Empire of Lombardia, scheming to obtain the lost power of ancient dragons, assigned a special mission to the Church’s elite knight squad: Beowulf. Their sights were set on capturing Yuma Ilvern—a boy with a dragon’s soul entwined with his own… the Shining Dragon himself, the most powerful of all dragons. Imprisoned, tortured, and lost in despair, Yuma was trapped in darkness and in chains… until a gallant girl burst into his cell, determined to break him out. He could never have imagined the battles that lay in store…”
Shining Resonance Refrain will launch on July 10 for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A demo of the game is currently available to download on all platforms.
