You need a Genesis emulator in order to play "Shining Force: The Legacy of Great Intention" for Genesis and a GBA emulator to play "Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon" for GBA. Click here for my collection of emulators!

If you need assistance with any of the emulators offered in my site, check out my emulation help subsite: Video Game Emulation for Newbies.


For each hack I have two downloads:
• "Pre-patched" is a copy of Shining Force with the hack already patched onto it, so just download and play! :)
• "Patch" is only the patch. This is for people who prefer to patch the game themselves. If you need help with patching click here.

This exciting hack offers a whole new experience for Shining Force! There are many tweaks to the gameplay, story, dialogue, and spells. You'll notice new features in the animated battle sequences: battle backgrounds from Shining Force CD, new sprites for enemies and Force members, and new weapon designs. There are new spell effects for staffs and spell users such as the iconic Blast from Shining in the Darkness! New abilities and ranges for most non-magic users; even enemies use these. Force members have more presence/dialogue in select scenes. All icons have been updated.
There are new gauntlet-like battles to spice things up during those treks to other towns. Your goal is to reach the destination against a horde trying to stop you. Hurry up and reach Alterone, Maxine! The starting team includes a female Max and Varios! Check out these screenshots from it! Learn more at their homepage.
Important note: Use emulator save states to save your game. In-game saving doesn't work.
