Shining Force 3 - Synbios team by maiyeng Shining Force 3 - Synbios team by maiyeng
I wanted to title it "Synbios Battalion", but ran out of space. ^-^; Oh well.
Shining Force 3 - Disk 1 fanart! XD Characters from
L-R: Grace, Dantares, Synbios, Masqurin.
Synbios is the hero of the first disk from the SF3 senario. =3

Wonder if anyone else knows of this Sega RPG?

COMMENT - Jan 2013: My brother was googling images for SF3 and came across my fan art. Looking back on this now, I can see flaws in this old fan pic of mines and things that could have been improved (The faces. Oh deary...). Perhaps, in future, I can make up for this by drawing a better piece of SF3 fan art.

hehe, I know what you mean, I bought a Saturn off ebay 3 months ago, but it was broken >_<.... got a refund, but luckily I was able to fix my OLD Saturn with parts from this new broken Saturn, lol.

The 2 last scenarios games are still totally worth playing even to this day, and theirs even an online english script translation of the entire 2 last games. So you can follow along with the plot even if the games are in Japanese.

That's good! I wish we had our old Saturn but my brother gave it away. Brought one from ebay, but it doesn't save any game data at all. =( But it works at least. Now, if I can find SF3 and at a reasonable price...

Oh yes! I have heard about the English patches! I watched a few videos on youtube too. Very impressed that fans have gone so far to get a work English translation for the last 2 scenarios.

your Saturn can't save? that just means it needs a new battery (back of the saturn by the cables), just replace it with a brand new one, you can find those CP batteries anywhere.

yeah! they did! but it's only partially done tho, they still have TONS of more to go, but I'm glad fans go to that length for the series ^_^... right now, the Shining fans are trying to get Camelot back on the franchise by buying an ad space in a UK magazine bassically saying to rescue the shining series(Camelot is what the shining series needs so bad right now).

CP batteries, huh. I'll check it out!

Having read your comment about Camelot, I was wondering what they've been up to. I know they're working on the new Golden Sun game, but I thought they made more Shining games since 3. Turns out I'm wrong. I didn't know they stop making the Shining series, though that would explain a lot in regards to the other Shining games after 3, which were kind of... different.

Yes! the CP batteries (same ones the Dreamcast VMU's used, think it's CP32024 or something like that) on the back of the Saturn keeps the games saved, think they last 2 years on the Saturn. Always good to have a back up memory card. ^_^

yeah, Camelot and Sega had a terrible fallout after SF3 was finished which resulted in Camelot abandoning the Shining Series. =(… I don’t even want to play any shining game after SF3… to me they’re not true shining games.

I am currently playing the new Golden Sun game, which I’m enjoy very much ^_^ but that’s the only RPG series Camelot has done since the Shining series.

I'm not sure if you posted this pic at Shinign Force Central at all, or if I just remember it from random Shining Force fanart searches, but that's a great pic you've done there. Grace and Dantares look excellent, and my only quibble is that Synbios and Masqurin look a little too long-faced (though that may just be me being far too used to drawing shorter faces). :)

(Plus, for the record, Grace is a dog-girl, not a lion-girl. ;) )

Hi! And yes, I have posted this pic long ago at the Shining Force Central site. :nod:
Yes, and I can see what you mean about the faces (which irriates me every time I look at the picture now. You can only see the mistakes months or years later, but not at the time. ^^; )

I didn't realize that Grace was a dog-girl. O.O

Aww, man I wish I still had the game (Brother gave away the console & games years ago).
But I'm glad there are people out there who still love the game! =D

I've played Shining Force II on Genesis/Megadrive. That game was renowned round here for being one of the few Megadrive RPGs that made their way to spanish market. That was back in 1994 and I bet a lot of spanish gamers know about it.

I wish I had a Saturn to play SFIII... I guess I'm too late. By the way, nice pic ^^

Really? Here I think Phantasy Star was pretty popular.

Awww. Only the first disk of Shining Force 3 got translated into English, which is a shame as there are 2 other disks that were released in Japan.
Hehe, thank you! ^^
