Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Game's N. American Release Slated for October 31
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Publisher Gaijinworks announced on Tuesday that its new North American release date for Bandai Namco Entertainment's Summon Night 6: Lost Borders PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game is slated for October 31. The European release will "follow shortly," but Gaijinworks did not reveal an exact date.
The company is currently hosting a prize campaign for the game.
Gaijinworks earlier delayed the game from its original May 23 release date without specifying an exact release date. Gaijinworks founder Victor Ireland explained that the delay was because the ROM Gaijinworks had received was missing content and a new play test was required for the new ROM.
Gaijinworks will offer three different packaging options in addition to the "Wonderful Edition" box set that was available for early preorders. The initial print run will include a voucher that can be mailed in for a soundtrack CD. Gaijinworks will also release the game digitally in North America, South America, and Europe.
The game shipped for PS4 and PS Vita in Japan in March 2016 as a celebration of the game series' 15th anniversary.
Gaijinworks describes the story:
Summon Night 6: Lost Borders weaves an emotional tale of friendship and discovery that begins in the sparsely populated “cocoon world” of Fillujah, where the three main characters (Raj, Amu and Ist) live in virtual isolation. Each has a single companion, a flying sidekick with an amazing special power, and they are all surprised when dozens of strangers begin to suddenly appear—literally falling out of the clear, blue sky. Lost Borders can be played and enjoyed without any knowledge of the previous games in the series, but fans will recognize that the mysterious strangers are actually returning characters from all of the mainline Summon Night games.
Bandai Namco Games released Summon Night 5 on the PlayStation Portable in 2013 in Japan. Gaijinworks released the game in English in December 2015 for the PSP and PS Vita.
