Gaijinworks Kicks Off Prize Summoner Promotion

Celebrating the Impending Debut of Summon Night 6: Lost Borders for PS4 and PS Vita

Redding, CA (October 16, 2017)—Just ahead of the Halloween release of its upcoming strategy/role-playing epic Summon Night 6: Lost Borders, independent game publisher GAIJINWORKS is gearing up for a unique “Prize Summoner” promotion that will put games, consoles and other exciting prizes into the hands of the company's biggest fans. Starting today, North American fans can qualify for weekly prize drawings by re-tweeting specific Tweets from GAIJINWORKS' official Twitter feed ( with the #SN6PS hashtag.

Among the many prizes to be won are PlayStation®TV consoles and copies of the Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Wonderful Edition, a sold-out run of lush, feature-packed box sets that include the game along with bonuses like a plush figure, hardcover art book, soundtrack CD and much more. Each week a Wonderful Edition winner and a runner-up PlayStation®TV winner will be chosen at random from all eligible retweets of the official tweet. At the end of the promotion, one lucky winner chosen from all eligible retweets during the promotion will receive a grand prize package that includes a 55-inch HDTV, a PlayStation®TV console, a copy of the rare Wonderful Edition box set and an assortment of savory snacks and sweet beverages. Anyone can get one prize entry weekly with just a retweet of the Prize Summoner tweet for that week.

GAIJINWORKS president Victor Ireland sees the weekly giveaways as a way to reward fans for keeping the faith as he and his dedicated staff labored to complete the English localization, voice recording, testing and production of the biggest game in the company's history. “If you missed the opportunity to lock down a Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Wonderful Edition before the presale window closed one year ago,” he adds, “the ‘Prize Summoner’ promotion is your last chance to score what is sure to be one of the world's most desirable video-game collectibles before it hits the secondary market.”

Anticipation for Summon Night 6: Lost Borders is at a high, with its North American trailer already the most-viewed YouTube video in GAIJINWORKS history by a large margin. “The Summon Night 6 Trailer has had more views in a few weeks than our previous most-viewed video had in two years! I'm happy to see it, and can't wait for the fans to experience all this game has to offer, and especially the rare and very cool cross-save option that lets you use one save for both the PS4 and PSVita versions that enables both home and on-the-go play.” says Ireland.

RPG fans will want to preorder the game at Amazon, GameStop, or their local game shops to take advantage of limited pre-order perks. Once the preorder perks (like the multiple art variants Amazon offers, for example) are gone, that's it, making it likely they will be sought after in coming years.

Originally published in Japan by Bandai Namco Entertainment, Inc, 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.

The game features well over a hundred Strategy RPG battles in the main scenario, the Endless Domain, and special RTS-like Dispatch Quests. With 60,000 lines, 20,000 of which are voiced, and over 60 characters, Summon Night 6 is packed with content and capped with over 35 possible endings. There's nothing else quite like it for PS4 and PSVita.

GAIJINWORKS is comprised of key award-winning ex-Working Designs staff who focus on continuing a tradition of quality localization and innovative fan service for games in both the digital and physical media markets. The company's current focus involves “rescuing” key Japanese role-playing games by bringing them to the English-speaking world before console manufacturers discontinue their support of the hardware that plays them, i.e. before the games become “trapped” in Japan forever.
