It’s been recently announced that Media.Vision in cooperation with Felistella, will be spearheading development of Summon Night 6: Lost Borders, the next entry in the Summon Night series published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Media.Vision may not have the biggest name attached to them, but they also have a special development history. They are the developers behind the Wild Arms series, an RPG series often that often incorporates old Western aesthetics into its designs. Media.Vision is also the force behind Valkyria Chronicles III (which hasn’t been localized) and some of the recent Shining series of games including Shining Resonance (which hasn’t been localized.) Most recently, they worked on Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, the localization of which was announced this past summer. Suffice it to say, this team has been in the business for a while. Other development talents include Kouhaku Kuroboshi for character design (any Kino’s Journey fans?) and Shuu Mikayozuki on world and scenario planning.
Additionally, Famitsu published an article with some screenshots and basic story details for Summon Night 6. The game takes place in the world of Filuuja, which is enclosed in a barrier and is prone to strange things falling from the sky. One day, an entity from another world breaks through to Filuuja, which sets the plot into motion. The main protagonists, Raj and Am, are swept up in these events. Raj is described as a cheerful young man while Am is aloof.
The game reportedly is 50% complete, and the first promotional video is to be expected in September.
