One day Freed sees a mysterious girl with one black wing. Panis has an innocent personality and the miraculous power to gather animals when she sings. Amazed, the islanders begin to call Panis an “angel.” However, when the moon shines the sky turns red and a gigantic thing is drawn towards her…
Shining Ark uses an active & command battle system for monster battles. You can move around the battlefield, guard, dash, and if you’re close to an enemy you can attack using one of your character’s commands. Each character has their own attacks and you can bring four party members into battle. Panis has a unique battle system that Sega will explain later on. When you’re not defending the village from pirates or fighting huge monsters, you do everyday island life stuff. Shining Ark has players tend to a vegetable garden, gather dairy products like eggs and milk, and bake bread. The scope sounds similar to Harvest Moon or Rune Factory, well if Natsume’s games had pirates.Shining Ark has a fishing mini-game, it’s like a RPG prerequisite.Players can also hunt monsters for materials.
