The plot of Shining Force III revolves around a conflict between the Republic of Aspinia and the Destonian Empire. At a peace comference, the Republic leader, Benetram, appears to kidnap Domaric, the Destonian Emperor, which leads to the outbreak of war. However, not all is as it seems...

In Scenario 1, you play the role of Synbios, a Republican general who must discover who is behind the war and protect the Republic from betrayal and invasion...

Released as Shining Force III : Scenario 1 in Japan, and as Shining Force III in North America and Europe. This is the only one of the Shining Force III scenarios to be released outside of Japan.

Why I cannot add a new game, always I get error "you cannot edit existing games.."

Here, add Shining Force 3 Premium Disc for Sega Saturn (strategy, japanese only, Raster/Polygon) say:
Shining Force III is a game that has managed to attract a large amount of attention ever since it was announced for the Sega Saturn. Not only has it turned out to be one of the greatest strategy-RPGs ever created, it was one of very few games that was released in successive multiple chapters (SFIII was released in three interconnected scenarios roughly 6 months apart). To add fuel to the fire, Sega of Japan announced that a special gift would be sent to everyone who had bought all three scenarios of SFIII. This gift turned out to be the fantastic Shining Force III Premium Disc.
