Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Heads West In 2017
Gaijinworks has announced it is localizing Summon Night 6: Lost Borders. The PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game will be released in North America, South America, and Europe in the first quarter of 2017. In North America, physical copies will be available, and it will be available digitally in all three regions.
Summon Night 6 is set in Fillujah, a cocoon world. Raj and Amu live on a quiet island with their respective companions, Patch and Quilt. However, the two aren’t alone for long. After a meteor falls into Fillujah, people from Lyndbaum begin appearing in this world. Characters from previous Summon Night games, like Summon Night 5’s Arca and Folth and their Crosses, appear in the game.
The latest Summon Night has many returning and new features. For example, there are over a dozen endings, which can be reached by taking part in conversations at night with allies. The fishing minigame from Summon Night 5 returns. You’re also able cook the fish you’ve caught in another mini-game. The battle system this time around will offer Summon Bursts, where two allies team up to for a combined summon magic attack, and Chain Attacks where your allies will automatically attack an enemy they’re surrounding with no repercussions. It also offers HD graphics.
Gaijinworks also announced English voice acting for Summon Night 6’s key scenes. The recording will begin sometime this month. The game itself has 50% more text than Summon Night 5.
This is the second Summon Night game Gaijinworks has picked up. It released the PlayStation Portable’s Summon Night 5 on the North American PlayStation Store on December 15, 2015.
