Summon Night 5 Slated to Release Digitally on December 15
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Video game publisher Gaijinworks announced on Tuesday that it will release the Summon Night 5 PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita game digitally via the PlayStation Store on December 15. Gaijinworks noted that the UMDs are still being produced for the game's pre-order only physical version, and did not provide a date for its release.
Gaijinworks describes the game:
When worlds collide and everything is turned upside-down, a new order must be created to keep chaos at bay. BandaiNamco's Summon Night 5 is the continuing story of that order-keeping society, the Eucross, and the adventures their Summoners have keeping their world and the disparate races from the Otherworlds in balance. Players can choose to experience the story as rookie Summoners Folth or Arca, and one of four possible partners (their “Cross”), giving the game's dialogue and feel a unique flavor on up to eight different playthroughs. What players see, and how the characters react depends on what characters are chosen at the beginning of each playthrough. But whatever choices a player makes, they're in for a charming and sometimes tense Strategy-RPG adventure as they gradually unravel a plot that threatens the balance the Eucross is sworn to protect. The game features beautiful 2D and 3D art with battles presented in user-adjustable isometric perspective, and gorgeous animation that is a hallmark of Bandai Namco productions.
Gaijinworks previously streamed a 25-minute English gameplay video for the game.
The anime studio ufotable (Fate/Zero, The Garden of Sinners) animated the game's anime sequences. Emiko Bleu performed the game's opening theme song produced by Sing Like Talking band member Chiaki Fujita, and Japanese game developer Felistella planned and developed the game with staff members from the previous entries in the series, including Takeshi Iitsuka and Kei Miyakozuki. Namco Bandai Games shipped the game in Japan in May 2013.
Bandai Namco Entertainment is developing Summon Night 6: Lost Borders, the newest entry in the Summon Night series of tactical role-playing games. Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the game in Japan in spring 2016. The game will commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Summon Night franchise.
