According to Famitsu, Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict is going to visit Japanese 3DS eShop on January 15. This hidden Game Gear gem always interested me, since its story takes place between classic Shining Force and Shining Force II. If you ever wondered what happened to Max, Final Conflict is the game for you.
Unfortunately, Final Conflict never made it outside Japan and we probably won’t see an eShop release in North America or Europe anytime soon. Although, if you happen to have a Japanese 3DS, you can download this “missing link” of the Shining Force saga and enjoy it with the help of some fan translations.
