Summon Night 6 Game's 1st Promo Video, March 10 Release Date Revealed

posted on by Jabulani Blyden
PS4/PS Vita game to feature appearances from Summon Night 5, Summon Night 4 characters

Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming the first promotional video on Sunday for the Summon Night 6: Lost Borders PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game. The company also announced at the Jump Festa 2016 event in Chiba on Saturday that the game will ship on March 10 in Japan. The company also revealed the game's box art (pictured below right).

Characters from previous Summon Night games will make an appearance. Many returning characters, such as Ray from Summon Night 4 and Folth from Summon Night 5, make a cameo in the above new trailer.

Those who purchase the first copies of the game will receive a product code for a "Oyakata" summon. Bandai Namco Entertainment will also ship a 15th anniversary pack version of the game on March 10, which will include: an illustration collection from all six games in the franchise, a soundtrack CD, a product code for around 40 background music tracks from all six games in the series, a custom theme for the PS Vita, and two rubber straps. The 15th anniversary pack retails for 9,800 yen (about US$81).

Yui Ogura will star in the game as Amu, and Ryōta Asari will co-star as Rāju.

The game's female protagonist is Amu. As a rule, Amu doesn't want to be involved in anything troublesome, but at her core she has a meddlesome personality. She is an unsociable and aloof sniper. She travels together with her partner Kilt. The game's male protagonist is Rāju, who lives with his partner Patch in Firūja. He is an adventurer who makes his living by collecting items that fall from the sky.

The game will feature multi-leveled fields in its simulation battles, and those who hold the high ground will have an advantage in battle. As in previous games in the series, players will be able to summon beasts to fight with them in battle. The summons can damage enemies and also create special effects in battle.

The game will take place not in Lyndbaum, but in the cocoon world of Firūja. In the story, one day a meteor-like object falls in Firūja, and when Rāju rushes to collect it, he finds a being that was summoned from Lyndbaum. At the same time, Amu, who lives in a place far away from Rāju, also meets a being summoned from Lyndbaum. Amu and Rāju set out on their own journeys with these otherworldly creatures to achieve their own goals. Both head toward the threaded walls that enclose Firūja.

The game is commemorating the 15th anniversary of the Summon Night franchise.

Bandai Namco Games released Summon Night 5 on the PlayStation Portable in 2013 in Japan. Gaijinworks released the game in English on December 15 for the PSP and PS Vita.
