Shining Resonance Refrain is only the latest in Sega’s long-running Shining franchise, stretching all the way back to 1991’s Shining in the Darkness.
After four years of Japanese exclusivity, Shining Resonance Refrain has finally made it to the west along with a bunch of new additions. Taking the role of the young and unassuming Yuma, within him lies the soul of the ancient Shining Dragon. In the war between the Kingdom of Astoria and the Lombardian Empire, you’ll find yourself neck deep in monsters from all over the game’s fictional world of Alfheim.
Without any autosave functionality, however, you might find you’ll have to take the initiative yourself if you’re wanting to take a break from all the action.
How to save your game
Unfortunately, you can’t save Shining Resonance Refrain whenever you feel like it. The game uses a manual save system, similar to many classic JRPGs, where you must first arrive at a save station.
These save points are characterised by a small blue floating orb. You’ll find many of them scattered across the globe during your adventure. Interact with one of them to save your progress so far.
