Shining Resonance Refrain is a new 4K JRPG video game on Xbox One

Shining Resonance Refrain now available to play on Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles. The game is a Japanese roleplaying game (JRPG) that’s actually a re-release of the Japan-only original with new features and character options. Shining Resonance Refrain is also Xbox One X Enhanced and will play in 4K resolution when played on that console.

Here’s the full game description and trailer.

Play as Yuma Ilvern and stop the Empire from exploiting the power of the ancient dragons, including the soul of the Shining Dragon within you. With the help of your friends, realize your destiny, save Astoria, and unleash the strength you’ve always had locked away.

In the original game, previously released only in Japan, Imperial Princess Excella was an unplayable character, but in the new “Refrain Mode” in Shining Resonance Refrain, both she and Dragonslayer Jinas can be added as party members for a new experience – just be sure to save this for your second playthrough to avoid any spoilers!

Dragons were long thought to be extinct, and because Yuma holds the ability to transform into the Shining Dragon, he was taken as a captive of the Empire. With the help of the Dragoneers, Sonia, princess of Astoria, pleads with Yuma to aid them in their fight to save their land from the Empire’s dominion. Typically timid, will Yuma find the courage to realize the strength he has within him?
