Played the switch demo, and short as it was it made me glad that I went a head and preordered the PS4 version way back when it was first announced. I love Tony Taka's art. So many cute girls to romance.

If you can call this generic hack and slash waifu crap a "Shining" game. The real "Shining" franchise died years ago

Truthfully, I agree with you on that front. The problem is Camelot no longer develops the series since they strictly work on Mario sports games. And there was one last good strategy Shining that came out in 2009 that had the flavor of the old series, Shining Force Feather, but sadly it wasn't localized and was vastly ignored by the Japanese audience too. But you're right; ever since Shining switched to Diablo style hack and slash + loot grabbing and added choose your waifu as a primary gameplay element, it has made the series lose its once sterling reputation. I didn't mind the hack and slash, since Tears and EXA were immensely enjoyable titles, but the waifu crap needs to go.
