Mishaela's henchmen and evil army will not rest until they stop you.
Shining Force: Final Conflict was released in Japan in June of 1995. It was developed by Sonic! Software Planning. Although Shining Force: Final Conflict never left Japan, a complete English fan translation was released in 2006.
What makes Shining Force: Final Conflict special is that it's a love letter to anyone who's a fan of Shining Force 1 and 2. It includes familiar characters, scenes, and music from both games, in addition to tying together the stories. Some characters (even villains!) who are unplayable in the games join your army in Final Conflict.
The soundtrack consists of various remakes of familiar tracks from Shining Force 2. That is if you don’t mind Genesis tracks watered-down for Game Gear’s lesser quality audio driver. For Game Gear’s standards, the soundtrack is pretty good!
