Players can also chose to play Summon Night 3 and Summon Night 4 with in easy mode and experience the same story. A fortune teller tells you how compatible you are with each character, which should make it easier to earn a specific ending.

A new puppet system allows players to add guest characters and enemies into their team to make a dream party. These guest characters will have unique battle conversations too. You can also team up with other allies to use a Summon Assist, a skill that lets you summon stronger monsters.

Felistella is also developing Summon Night 5. We haven’t heard too much about the game, but here’s what the hero and heroine from Summon Night 5 wears. Launch copies of Summon Night 3 include a code for an extra costume based on the Summon Night 5 lead characters.

  • KotaroInugami

    Summon Night became a strategy game? Aww, I liked it’s ‘Tales of’ style combat.

    • :X It originally was a strategy game.

      The action RPG ones were the Swordcraft Story spin offs.

      • KotaroInugami

        Ohh I see. My mistake. :P

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Well all their main series have always had strategy rpg genre there. It is only for the spin-off there that they had action rpg style.^_^

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Bamco seems toreally gives a lot of love for this franchise here.^_ ^ Hope it can goes great there and comes here too.^_^

    Who knows, maybe many gamer outside of Japan would also love to taste Summon Night there?^_^

  • Ladius

    I love how Namco is resurrecting this series, even if they must know it won’t sell particularly great. It’s a good thing to do, and it shows they care even for their minor IPs and know they can manage them efficiently with low budget efforts, something most other big publisher aren’t able to do.

    Now, if only there was even a slim chance of the SN games being localized… :(

    • LynxAmali

      – even if they must know it won’t sell particularly great

      It wouldn’t have gotten fives games and a spinoff series if it wasn’t popular.

      • Ladius

        Summon Night was one niche franchise from a little developer (ex Flight Plan), it was “popular” in the same way as the Idea FactoryCompile Hearts or Sting games (low sales, but enough to build a zealous fanbase and to justify further development) but it wasn’t comparable to bigger series in terms of sales and relevance.

        That’s why I’m so happy to see Namco interested to resurrect the series even if it isn’t a big seller compared to their own franchise: it implies that they’re fine with having low key franchises in their lineup and that they won’t can anything that isn’t able to sell hundreds of thousands of copies.

  • loving the artwork!
    Never tried this series, but the disgaea feel of the battles looks interesting

  • Fidelis

    Summon Night

    Brings back bad memories..

  • Just Tim

    Wow, Namco Bandai, you just proved me wrong about you, euthanizing Summon Night for more Dragonball & Naruto.

    Now, with that said, if you can’t keep Summon Night alive on traditional systems, there’s always iTunes and Android; hey, last I checked, SE just sent the real FFIII to those two systems.

    Also, if you want to promote Summon Night more, please offer SN DLCs in your bigger franchises like Tekken.
