20 years of the Shining Series

Well, it’s here – just :) March 29th, the anniversary of the Shining Series.

I’m just uploading the last couple of Campaign videos I received. Thanks so much to everyone who’s supported the Campaign over the past 6 months. It’s been a lot of work to organise but it’s all been worthwhile already, as I have had confirmation that the parcel has been delivered to Camelot. We know that our Bundle of Love has reached them intact and in time.  We can only hope that they enjoy reading the letters, like the gifts and perhaps even choose to respond.

We’ll see what today brings in terms of Shining news, as rumour has it that the Sega “Shining World” portal will be updated today with some news. I won’t hold my breath, but I’d be lying if I said my hopes aren’t already up for this!

Today is the day of our “big tweet” to Sega, to try to show them a bit of Shining love. If you have a twitter account, please tweet the following message today, which will go to Sega Japan, America and Europe!

@sega_feed @SEGA Happy 20th Anniversary to the Shining Series. Please Save our Series, make a Shining Force SRPG! #ShiningForceSOS Retweet!

Thanks to everyone, and happy Shining Day!

    Congradulations on your campaign. I have been a fan of the Shining Force game since I was 6 years old, it was also the first strategy game I ever played. My mom threw out my Sega Smash Pack game disk around that time (words can never describe how ticked off I was) 10 years later I find out I can get it downloaded to my Wii, excitement drove itself into my body like the Chaos Breaker into Dark Dragon. When I found out there was a second Shining Force, the excitement was even stronger. And when I found out about the Shining Series, I can’t possibly describe it. The Shining Series must live on like it used to, more than any other game series out there! Even more than any other classic game out there. I will support any way I can! (Can’t donate because I am only 16 and don’t have a credit card) I will do whatever I can to save the Shining Series! Even if it means having to knock some sense into those Cameot People!

    i too have been a fan of the Shining Force series, since my dad played it first time on the Sega Megadrive, i used to like playing it till i moved from home, lucky i found it on the wii and got there :)

    Any response from Camelot in regards to the campaign? Like a “thank you” or something?

    Unfortunatley nothing as yet :( I emailed them a few weeks ago, but no response to that either. I guess they’re pretty busy at the moment though, what with the rolling blackouts in Tokyo – business hours are probably cut back quite a lot at the moment. Still hoping!
