Shining Force 2 - Return to Grans

Hack of Shining Force II


Return to Grans is a more challenging version of the original game, which also features a better narrative as well as improved visuals.

  • Dialogue in the game has been vastly reworked - about 40% of all text passages have been altered, replacing the oftentimes bland writing of the original.
  • Most of the not so appealing graphics in vanilla SF2 have been improved/replaced, such as the battle sprites of the Vicars or the Archers.
  • Difficulty and balance have been reworked by tweaking enemies’ stats, skills and numbers on the battlefield. Battles will usually appear familiar due to mostly the same enemies and setups, but will often play out quite differently thanks to new abilities, magic spells and some surprises.

Gameplay-wise, the hack will require you to play more tactical; careful positioning and a well-thought-out composition of your party are more important than in the original game.

Please view the guide ( for more details.
