If you're a fan of the Summon Night series of strategy-RPGs, you'll be pleased to know that publisher Gaijinworks has announced that the latest game in the series, Summon Night 6: Lost Borders will be out in North America and Europe in February 2017, for PlayStation 4 and Vita. The game will be released via retail with a physical case and manual in North America, but digitally in South America and Europe. There's also a "Wonderful Edition" that will cost $149 USD and comes with:

summon night 6 special edition gaijinworks

  • PS4 Game with Multi-Sided Cover Sheet, Game Manual, and Disc Label

  • Dust-Jacketed, Hardcover Deluxe Art Book for the Summon Night Series

  • Summon Night 6: Lost Borders 32 Track Soundtrack with Disc Label

  • Exclusive 7" Plush (One of three possible sidekick characters from the game, Pink (shown), Blue, Grey, randomly inserted)

  • Exclusive Four PVC Molded Drink Coasters

  • Exclusive Huge 21" x 30" poster

You can preorder this edition from Gaijinwork's website. Doing so will net you a $20 discount. In addition, you can read an official synopsis from Gaijinworks below.


The game centers on three main characters living in isolation. Their solitary routines are upended when people literally begin falling from the sky into their world. At first, they struggle to learn who the visitors are and why they dropped in, but as they unravel the mystery they learn the power of friendship, eventually using that power to help them overcome a dark secret that cuts to the heart of their reality.

The gameplay is classic Summon Night, but turbocharged and streamlined. The usual strategy grid is displayed when you move, but the characters are free to run anywhere within their movement range without being limited to the squares. The Summon magic is represented here, as expected, as are assists, but there’s a new huge Summon Burst type of attack that unleashes crazy devastation on enemies.

Terrain is expressed in 3D beautifully, as are the characters. And the ever-popular night conversations are available with more characters than ever to help develop strong ties with allies at the end of every chapter. Summon Night 6 also supports cross save, allowing the game to be played on both PS4 and PS Vita. And players will need that edge because the game is a replay beast, with more than a dozen endings to see.

If you're curious as to what we thought of Summon Night 6, check out Colin Burns' preview from E3 2016, and stay tuned to RPGFan for more details.
