Gaijinworks is set to deliver Summon Night 5 and Class of Heroes 3 to Western audiences later this year. Both games were previously only released in Japan. The company will also hold a poll to determine the volume of physical copies for the games that will only be available through pre-sale. Those who buy a physical copy will also receive a digital version so they can preserve their mint collection or play on the Vita. The company is also exploring a Steam release of Summon Night 5 and a PS3 release of Class of Heroes 3. Finally, neither game will have a dub because it is too expensive.

Summon Night 5 is a strategy RPG that places players in the shoes of either Folth or Arca, rookie summoners tasked with preserving order among the disparate races of the Otherworlds as members of Eucross. The story will vary based on choice of protagonist and one of four possible partners called a "Cross."

Class of Heroes 3 is a dungeon crawling RPG. For the first time in the series players can choose from one of three different schools, and their choice will affect their uniform, difficulty, and supporting cast of characters. The player's relationship with the other characters is controlled by an affinity system that can result in either a loving or hateful relationship with their classmates. And finally, labyrinths will have background music to keep players motivated to explore.

Ninja Class

Gaijinworks hope to bring even more JRPGs over from Japan if these games sell well, so check them out later this year on PSP and PS Vita.
