- Polygon Characters
In this section you are able to view all the characters (playable and non-playable) in their 3D battle poses. You are able to select their class and weapon type, before viewing their attack, evade and special attack motions in 3D. The 3D models can be zoomed into and rotated of course. Great fun!
Here you can view some original concept sketches for all the main characters, as well as some ideas that weren't included in the game. The pictures can be zoomed.
- Special Battles
This is the main part of the disc. I could go into the full gameplay details, but if you're reading about the Premium Disc, I'd assume you've at least played the other parts of Shining Force III, or read their reviews. If not, I recommend you do so! The battle mode basically uses the Shining Force III battle system, but allows you to select any of the characters you recruited while playing the three Scenarios. You can use a save file from any of the Scenarios, but you'll only be able to select characters who have joined so far. The battles pit you against great opponents from Shining history, including Iom, Darksol, Zeon and Bulzome, amongst many others. There are 9 battles in total, and by taking a mixture of characters from your three teams, you're able to build up friendships between characters who wouldn't normally fight together. Talk about incentive to play, you could make every single charactere soulmates with each other if you had the time!
- Save Game Creator
This one is useful for those of you who are missing Scenarios 1 or 2 - you can simulate the events of those two by answering a selection of questions, and these are then used to generate a save file, ready for use with Scenario 3.
- Movie Clips
This section is also quite enjoyable - you can view the intro movies for the three Scenarios, Shining Force III TV commercials, an interview about the making of the game, an extra movie of the Valkyrie and finally the videos from the end of Scenario 3. The two Scenario 3 endings are only available if you've got a completed Scenario 3 save.
- Sound Test
This allows you to listen to all the music and sound effects (including character voices) from all three Scenarios.
...and then, of course, there's the temptation of getting each and every character soulmated!
With the Premium Disc Sound Test, you have all the great music from all three Scenarios, and you can listen to any piece you want, on demand! Great stuff!
