Bandai Namco has released a new set of Summon Night 6: Lost Borders details and screenshots introducing recently confirmed characters Hayato, Aya, Natsumi, and others, as well as the game’s evening conversations and dual protagonists.
Get the information below.
One after the other, visitors from the world of Lyndbaum begin appearing in the cocoon world of Filujah.
Their encounter with Raj and Amu leads them on an adventure.
But it seems the visitors were summoned from a different time axis and parallel world…
Why is such a thing happening? What is its purpose?
In order to solve the mystery that is the the very key to the cocoon world’s existence, you’ll become entangled in the expectations of various characters while continuing forward on your journey.
■ Story 01
After meeting Magna and Aty, and continuing on your journey, Patch suddenly begins to feel frightened. Hastily, a young man emitting ominous magic power suddenly appeared for everyone present to witness.
This young man’s name is Hayato. Magna is apparently an acquaintance of his, but the Hayato Magna knew was supposed to be a hero, a ‘Linker’ who would protect Lyndbaum in secret.
Demon Lord Hayato was overwhelming the group, but a young girl named Aya rushes to the rescue.
Aya is the next in line of the legendary Linkers, and as an Elgo agent was a heroine who protected the order of Lyndbaum.
It appears they’ve come here from different parallel worlds—summoners from Lyndbaum—each on a different time axis. Now, everyone begins to understand there are those that come from parallel worlds…
Hayato Shindo (voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa)
A young boy summoned from modern day Japan to Lyndbaum, whose was possessed by the Demon Lord. The Demon Lord moved the gate which led to modern day Japan in order to devour Hayato’s world, but was summoned to the cocoon world midway. When he arrived he was starving, and his magic power was greatly reduced. So the usually reserved Hayato begins to act selfishly and cause trouble.
Sol Servolt (voiced by Junya Enoki)
A young boy who is a confident, high ranking summoner. In order to save his friend Hayato, who was captured by the Demon Lord, he chases the Demon Lord, jumping into a gate to a different world, but is summoned to the cocoon world, where he loses most of his magic power.
Aya Higuchi (voiced by Yuri Shiratori)
A young girl with a neat and fragile appearance, but who also has a fortitude to stick to her beliefs for what’s best. Unlike the others who were summoned from Lyndbaum, it seems she voluntarily came to this world. She gains courage doing daredevil things with a calm face. In a sense, she’s wicked.
Claret Servolt (voiced by Kaoru Sakura)
A polite summoner girl. She and Aya are best friends and share secrets with each other. Much of her magic power disappeared after coming to this world, and her summon arts and large-scale attacks have become unusable.
■ Story 02
Amu is a young girl living in the cocoon world. She was living quietly with her rare animal companion Quilt.
One day, Amu witnessed lights of unprecedented scale raining down one after the other.
Unable to control her curiosity, she goes to examine one at her own discretion, and comes upon Natsumi, a girl from the different world of Lyndbaum.
Having not come into contact with humans other than herself, Amu was awkward and didn’t know if it was okay to approach her.
Near Natsumi, another light fell. And where it fell, Natsumi’s friend Cassis was there.
The reunion was joyful, and Amu, seeing that these two people had a mutual and caring trust for each other, recalled a faint yearning, and a feeling that she wanted to change herself was born.
From there, Amu decides to go on a journey with Natsumi to help her find her friends…
Natsumi Hashimoto (voiced by Tomoe Hanba)
A girl summoned from modern day Japan to the different world of Lyndbaum. Just as she was beginning to get used to her daily life in a different world, she was summoned to the cocoon world. Unable to deal with the situational change, she is picked up by Amu, who finds her crying. In her bluntness, Natsumi tends to feel uneasy when receiving assistance. She was looking for her friend Cassis, from who she was separated.
Cassis Servolt (voiced by Megumi Toda)
Her magic power lowered after she was summoned to this world. No longer able to fight like she normally would, she is rescued and reunited with Natsumi after being attacked by a stray summon. She joins her friend and takes on the role of the cheery and soothing mood maker. As Natsumi’s taster of poison, she’ll do anything she says obediently and sniff out any hidden dangers.
■ Game System
Visit your allies during adventure parts increase your likability. The series’ familiar evening conversations return, as well.
The story progresses via adventure parts. Solve the world’s variety of occurring events together with your allies.
You can increase your likability with allies through sub-event conversations. With a higher likability, you can gain enhanced Summon Assist effects, an increased chance of co-op attacks, and other bonuses. Characters with high likability can be useful in various situations.
Choose Your Hero
Like previous games, you’ll get to choose between a male or female protagonist. Traditionally, the story would proceed in the point of view of the character you select, and the character you don’t select wouldn’t appear in the story. However, Summon Night 6 changes up this formula. You’ll proceed through the story from the point of view of the character you select, but no matter which hero you choose, both characters are involved and play important roles in the story. You’ll even be able to increase your likability with the character you don’t select through evening conversations.
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 western trademarks for “Lost Borders” have been filed.
