Retro Wrap-Up - The Shining Edition | oprainfall

Another week is behind us, ladies and gentlemen. And this week’s Retro Wrap-Up is another instance in which commercials exclusively from North America just aren’t going to cut it. This week celebrates Shining Resonance, the latest entry in the Shining series that was just announced a few days back. And just because I can, I’m going to throw in an old commercial for my favorite Wild Arms game—since Media Vision is involved in the project. Do any of you have fond memories of the Shining series? Anyone try to import some of the games that were never localized here in the West? My interest is piqued; please do share your stories.

In the spirit of finding a shining light in the darkness, the oprainfall Retro Commercial Research Team—me—brings you a handful of the Shining games’ greatest TV moments from across the pond, plus a little something extra. I’m sure we have more than a few fans of Wild Arms among us.

Here are the highlights from this past week:
