It was confirmed today that Summon Night 6: Lost Borders from Gaijianworks & Bandai-Namco Games is releasing in both North America and in Europe February 2017. In addition, the limited edition for the title was announced, with the Limited Edition items being shown in the picture below.
The Limited Edition seems to be for the PS4 only but both the PS4 & Vita will be getting retail editions in stores when the game launches.
It turned out Summon Night 5 was only the warmup — Summon Night 6: Lost Borders would be the main attraction, and would be our very first multi-platform release on PS4 and PS Vita.
Even 9 months before the Japanese release, it was clear that this was a beautiful, fun strategy RPG — and a Summon Night game, through and through. And it was extra special because the game celebrated the 15th anniversary of Summon Night; it would bring together many key characters from the whole series for one grand, trope-free romp.
Okay, I lied about the “trope-free” part. There are as many JRPG tropes as you would expect in Summon Night 6: Lost Borders — maybe more. But they’re as fun and funny as you would hope. The game centers on three main characters living in isolation. Their solitary routines are upended when people literally begin falling from the sky into their world. At first, they struggle to learn who the visitors are and why they dropped in, but as they unravel the mystery they learn the power of friendship, eventually using that power to help them overcome a dark secret that cuts to the heart of their reality.
