The game developer Sega began streaming "Ver. A" of the opening anime movie for its Shining Blade role-playing game. Sega will release the latest entry in its Shining fantasy role-playing game franchise for the PSP handheld system next spring. The illustrator Tony is once again designing the characters, just as he did for last year's Shining Hearts game and several previous games.
Souichiro Hoshi is voicing the male lead Reiji, while Nana Mizuki will voice the female lead Sakuya. Sega announced 28 cast members so far, out of the full cast of over 30:

People can sample the voices on the official website. (The sample voices are listed in the same order as above.) Mizuki, Kuwashima, Tamura, Horie, Inoue, and Hayami are all contributing songs as their characters.
