The nearly twenty-year-old Shining series from Sega may be best known for its turn-based strategy roots, but the publisher has focused on more action RPG oriented entries recently like the brand new Shining Force Cross.

The newest issue of Famitsu reveals Sega's latest entry, announcing Shining Force Cross for arcades. The game, due to hit Japanese arcades this Winter, supports up to four players on cabinets linked via Sega's ALL.Net platform. We'd expect this one to stay only in Japan, hence the "only in japan" tag, but wouldn't put it past Sega to bring it to home consoles at some point in the future.

The game's official web site is not yet live, but we'd expect it to be later this week, when Famitsu hits newsstands proper.
