Atlus Ships Shining Soul
September 18, 2003

Atlus U.S.A., Inc., a leading publisher of RPG's, shipped its much anticipated multiplayer action role-playing game "Shining Soul" for the Game Boy® Advance.


In ancient times, a great civilization was reduced to ashes by the Dark Dragon, the incarnation of destruction.  After hundreds of years, a new people settled the land.  But, the Dark Dragon arose to once again turn the towns into a sea of fire.

Only a small group of individuals knew of a means to confront the Dark Dragon.  They were the descendants of those whose homes were destroyed long ago.  This group, known as the "Shining Fleet," tried to extend a helping hand to the people, who were unfamiliar in the ways of war.  These descendants of the ancients went forth and challenged the Dark Dragon, equipped with weapons and knowledge handed down by their ancestors.  The desperate struggle between the Dark Dragon and these warriors dragged on, until they found themselves in the country of Runefaust, located in the southeast of the Rune Continent.  Now, the final stage of the war is about to begin.  Will the Shining Fleet, led by the strategist Noah, succeed in defeating the dragon's Five Generals as well as the Dark Dragon itself…?

"No RPG on the Game Boy Advance can compare with the thrilling multiplayer action of Shining Soul," said Bill Alexander, Project Lead, Atlus U.S.A., Inc. "The title showcases features such as character customization which are normally only present in more complex console RPGs.  It's a truly rewarding portable gaming experience!"


  • Real-time multiplayer action!!  (Up to 4 players simultaneously.)  Even exchange items and equipment!

  • 4 exciting character classes available! Choose the fighter, and wield a legendary weapon, cast devastating spells as the Wizard, rely on your speed and accuracy as the Archer, or display feats of impossible strength as the Dragonute.

  • Customize your character by selecting from various color schemes, weapons, and armor.

  •  Embark on an epic journey, explore dark labyrinths, and battle gigantic bosses!

Shining Soul has a suggested retail price of US $29.99 and has been rated by "E" for Everyone by the ESRB. For more information, visit the Official Atlus website at
