Raj’s adventure begins as he sets out to help Magna and his friend return to their world..
■ Magna and Hasaha
Magna (voiced by Daisuke Kishio)
A young man who fell into the cocoon world from a different world called Lyndbaum. He is a hero who once defeated the demon king Melgitos during the “Puppet War” in Lyndbaum. He is separated from an important friend when he falls to the cocoon world, and together with his guardian beast Hasaha, meets Raj during his search. He has an easygoing and somewhat leisurerly personality, and sets off with the good and understanding Raj.
Hasaha (voiced by Yukana)
A kitsune from the yokai world. She is very quiet and shy, refers to Magna as “onii-chan,” and always keeps close to him. Using the gem she carries, she can see the true colors of a person’s heart. She specializes in black magic, but lost her abilities in a big way when she came to the cocoon world.
■ The Red-Headed Female Swordsman
During their journey, Raj and company sense a powerful magical power, and when they cautiously make their way towards that location, they end up in a quarrel against a red-headed female swordsman donned in armor. Surprisingly, this dreadful magic oozed out from within the red-headed woman. Her name is Aty. She harbors a mysterious magic sword called “Shartos” within her. When a knight suddenly appears out of no where and summons soldiers to launch an attack, Raj and company unite with Aty out of necessity to intercept it.
Aty (voiced by Ayako Kawasumi)
When Raj and company sense a powerful magical power during their journey, they come across the red-headed female swordsman. She has also been wandering the cocoon world from Lyndbaum, looking for a way to return home. She ends up traveling with Raj, and with the help of her hidden power, helps destroy the barriers standing in their way. She worked as a tutor in Lyndbaum, so as a teacher and someone who cares about the children, offers advice to troubled youth.
■ Game System
In Summon Night‘s basic battles, strategy is of the essence. Up to eight character units will be able to participate in battle. And because you can summon up to four additional characters, it’s possible to have a total of 12 characters on the field.
The weapons you can use vary depending on the character’s type. You’ll want to proceed into battle considering the position of both yourself and the enemy, the unit’s attack characteristics, and taking advantage of the field’s height difference and terrain.
The series’ familiar summoning skills, as well as “Summon Assists,” which strengthen the summoning skills of your surrounding allies, will return in Summon Night 6. There’s also a “Connect” skill that lets you take along a comrade within your range of movement.
Summon Night 6: Lost Borders is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan in spring 2016. A western release has yet to be announced, but a trademark for “Lost Borders” was filed in Europe.
