Play as Yuma Ilvern and stop the Empire from harnessing the power of the ancient dragons, as well as the soul of the shining dragon within you. With the help of your friends, fulfill your destiny, save Astoria and unleash the power you were meant to hold back.
In the original game, previously released only in Japan, it was impossible to play as the Imperial Princess Excella, but the new "Refrain Mode" in Shining Resonance Refrain allows you to add both your character and the dragon slayer Jinn to your party for a new experience. Better save that option for your second game, though, if you want to avoid any spoilers!
It has long been believed that the extinct dragons and Yuma, possessing the ability to transform into shining dragons, were taken captive by the Empire. With the help of the other Dragon Riders, Sonia, the Princess of Astoria, implores Yuma to help them in their fight to save their land from the Empire's domination. Will the shy Yuma have the courage to unleash the power he holds within?
