The JRPG genre is one that is really lacking entries on Xbox One. Xbox has had a strange relationship with Japanese games ever since Microsoft launched their entry into the console space in 2001. Well, if you are a fan of the genre then you’ll already be excited about the impending release of Shining Resonance Refrain. If you are already looking forward to it, are on the fence about it, or have never heard of it, then you’ll be interested to know that there is a demo for the game coming on 12th June.
Here’s the official description of the game as well as the trailer –
