News From December 1997:
Shining Force III Official in US - 12/22/97 - 5:07:24 PM
Capcom To Bring 4Meg Cart To US - 12/18/97 - 7:22:20 PM
Winter Heat, AM3's latest sporting game will be coming to the US. In the past, there has been a question as to whether or not it would be released in the US. At this time a February release is probable, as that is when the game will ship in Japan and Europe...to coincide with the start of the '98 Winter Olympics.
I reported yesterday that Shining Force 3 would be coming to the US for the Saturn. Today, SoA has sent out the official press release concerning the game. It will be out in May. No word on Grandia yet...but one can bet that it will also be coming to the US. Here's the PR for SFIII:
What: Shining Force III
Shining Force III is a strategic role-playing game (RPG) that takes players on an adventure through an ancient civilization where they encounter multiple enemies in a battle to the death. Continuing the popular Shining video game series, Shining Force III offers players immersive role-playing technology with a segmented, turn-based battle system and more than 50 hours of gameplay.
The header states it all. Capcom of America has decided to purchase 4Meg carts from Capcom of Japan and sell them in the US. The method of distribution has been undetermined. If retailer interest is high enough, we can expect to see the carts with games in stores. Otherwise, Capcom may opt to sell the 4Meg carts direct. Either way, its great that they are coming. Can't wait to see an official US version of X-Men vs. SF in its full glory.
