Summon Night Coming Soon

Earlier this week the official website for the Summon Night series teased an announcement with the image above. Today, Summon Night 6: Lost Borders was announced for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 through V-Jump Magazine. Interesting choice of platforms, especially considering the PlayStation 3’s absence. A handful of other prominent Japanese RPG franchises haven’t departed from the PlayStation 3 yet. There isn’t any media for the game available outside of scans, but screens and additional info are sure to come.


The mainline games are strategy RPG titles, and as a numbered title Summon Night 6 will follow this convention. There have been spinoff games that are more action oriented, like the Swordcraft Story subseries on Game Boy Advance (published by Atlus in the West.) But this is the first mainline title to appear on a console in the franchise’s 15 years of activity.

Coincidentally the Summon Night series has seen a modest amount of activity prior to this announcement. Gaijinworks is working hard to release the PlayStation Portable title Summon Night 5 for North America and Europe with a tentative 2015 release schedule. In addition, Aty from third and fifth Summon Night games is present as a Solo Unit in Project X Zone 2, under the Bandai Namco banner (Bandai Namco Entertainment often publishes the series in Japan.)

Summon Night 6: Lost Borders is set for release during the Spring of 2016 in Japan for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.

[Editor’s Note: Game Information Released]

Summon Night 6‘s female lead, Amu, attempts to stay out of trouble, but also has an adventurous side. Her weapon of choice is a sniper and she is followed by a familiar type creature named Kilt. The male lead is an adventurer named, Raju, who also has a familiar named Patch. Both these characters and their familiars are residence of Firuja. Battles will stay loyal to older games in the series where players will be able to summon beasts to fight in battle. The game’s story begins shortly after an item has fallen out of the sky only to be collected by Raju. The item contains a creature summoned by Lyndbaum giving Raju and Amu reason enough to embark on a journey with this and other creatures to explore the walls surrounding Firuja.
