Shining Force III (シャイニング・フォースIII, Shainingu Fōsu III?) is a video game designed for the Sega Saturn by Camelot Software Planning. It is a continuation of the Shining series. Comprising three separate but overlapping storylines, the Japanese version of Shining Force III was released in three volumes, known as: Scenario 1 | "God Warrior of the Kingdom" Scenario 2 | "Target: Child of God", and Scenario 3 | "Bulzome Rising". For players who collected all three volumes, Camelot Soft also issued a Premium Disc featuring artwork, a character model viewer, and additional extras.
In the United States and Europe, only Scenario 1 was released. The real ending to the game can only be viewed by completing all the games in the series. This concept would later appear in Suikoden III as the "Trinity Sight System".
The game raised controversy when Sega started threatening legal action and banning YouTube users for uploading recorded footage of the game. This has led to several YouTube users boycotting all products and reviews of Sega games until the matter is resolved.

“In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well oiled in the closet, but unused.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
“An artist is only an ordinary man with a greater potentialitysame stuff, same make up, only more force. And the strong driving force usually finds his weak spot, and he goes cranked, or goes under.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
