Summon Night 5 Hero Shows Off His Fist Shooting Gun

By Spencer . July 25, 2012 . 4:49pm


Felistella, the developer behind Record of Agarest War: Marriage, is working on Summon Night 5. While the game is technically handled by a different company, many staff members who worked on other Summon Night titles are creating Summon Night 5.


Kouhaku Kuroboshi is handling character designs and made two leads for Summon Night 5. You can play as either Force is the male protagonist with a gun arm that shoots energy hands or Alca who uses a polearm.

Summon Night 5 will be a strategy RPG just like other core games in the series. To prepare players for Summon Night 5, Namco Bandai is porting PS2 games Summon Night 3 and Summon Night 4 to the PSP. First print copies of Summon Night 3 and 4 includes a code to get a Summon Night 3 costume for the main characters in Summon Night 5.

  • This new art is sure changed lots from predecessors. Less Chibi hmm…guess art updates are to be expected. Have to admit the Guy character looks a bit cooler than the girl.  

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohh.^_^ SO the male gets weapon like BlackRockShooter there.^_^ While the female is….kinda like Sakura from Cardcaptor Sakura?^_^

  • rebecasunao

    That miniskirt looks kinda ridiculous. >_> Not sure why she has to wear that, except the obvious reason: to be eye candy. 

    • Chiupon

      or maybe she’s supposed to be fashionable and cute?

      • Asura

         Didn’t realize fashionable and cute = 3 inch miniskirt. I didn’t realize it because those two things don’t actually equal each other.

      • rebecasunao

        Her male counterpart is fully clothed, fashionable, cute (for girls at least) and has a weapon that looks pretty efficient. Girls don’t need to wear short outfits that expose them a lot to look cute or fashionable.

        Giving the girl a 3 inch miniskirt, like Asura said below, surely isn’t fashionable – it doesn’t make any sense, it would get in her way when fighting, it would show her panties to everyone all the time.

        I don’t know if you’re a boy or a girl, but if you ever tried wearing one you would realize you aren’t able to even move your legs properly without risking showing your panties every 2 seconds.
        Then again, 5 females are wearing a miniskirt or short dress in the picture above. And that demon girl… no comments.

        Anyway, my point isn’t “miniskirts suck”, it is “her outfit doesn’t make sense and it seems to be like that only to make her be eye candy”.

    The design look great, but the fact the Force gets a giant fist firing cannon while Alca gets a simple pole arm seems rather questionable. .__.

    It’s a shame that it’s PSP. Low to Zero chance for localization.

  • YES, YES, YES!

    I love ridiculous weapon designs. A giant fist taser… why haven’t I thought of that before?!

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Interesting. The guy looks like he has some huge ass taser, while the girl is flailing around a metallic oar. Need to see more until I’m convinced.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Now that’s a cool weapon!

  • James Smith

    The polearm is magical right? It must transform and shoots beams or something.
    How else could it compare to a big energy arm gun thing?

    •  it’s magically not-overcompensating for something!

  • French

    It’s 2.36am here and I just woke my brother up to show him that hand gun thing lol, maybe a little over the top, but yeah that weapons awesome

  • yeah, Alca just looks better

    plus, her weapon is a lot more badass in my opinion. The hero’s giant taser of doom is funny though.

    Now if we can only confirm a US release, and yuri romance lol

  •  Battler Ushiromiya :O

    • Anesia Hunter

      thank you for seeing the resemblance too. xD

  • Chiupon

    the female is pretty sassy and fashionable~ I love how she doesn’t look bland!
    Dem heels

  • Ronald Bixler

    His weapon… it reminds me of something…

  • Love the character designs. Can’t wait to get more details on the other playable characters. I really hope 5 and the ports of 3 & 4 will get localised.. totally about time some of the main series SN titles get English releases!

  • Hero: I’m going to punch you with bullets.. Or is it bullets that punch you… Either way you are dead evil foe!

  • neetyneety

    Between an awesome cannon that shoots energy fists and a polearm, I think I’ll go with the cannon.

  • komiko12

    Maybe the girl would be mage-like. The contrast between their weapons is weird.

  • Z3

    He’s gonna tase someone’s butthole I guess

  • Gives new meaning to the act of fisting…

  • Syn

    Giant iron arm of taser fist energy bullet  Awesomeness (with a chibi robot to go) or girl with steel pole and a really really reeeaaally short skirt……………………..SO hard to choose

  • Göran Isacson

    My arm is a fist-shooting cannon taser, your argument is invalid.
    Oh Japan. Never stop with your delightfully crazy designs.
