    Man, I’m mad jealous of you, Japan. :3 You’ve kept the Summon Night series all to yourself, when I’ve been starving for tactics games for aaaggeeesss.

      bcos it’s Namco Bandai and PSP most likely

    Wasn’t there an article about how Namco Bandai had set up a new framework for localizing their games faster? I think it probably applied mostly to the Tales games, though. And considering this game is on the PSP, there is probably a pretty narrow chance of it getting a US release short of a small miracle.

      None of the Main Series Summon Night tactical games (disregarding spin-offs and even then not all of them) were localized.
      I heard the main series was similar somewhat to Call of Duty, shamelessly reusing the engine between sequels with next to none additions (unlike the third GBA game :'( ), with the only new content being plot and maps.
      If you stick to one installment however, i’s not a bad simpler Tactics Ogre clone. It’d be fine if even one single installment was localized (like Popolocrois), maybe plus the second DS game and Granthese (a 2010 A-RPG PS2 game) to enjoy the series.

      • Gangrelion

        Well, most people that don’t like a certain series will probably see like it is all the same game because they will only see the game for a minute at best or they really will have discrimination for the game. This happens a lot. I played all the games and , at least in my opnion, the Summon Night series have more significant changes to its system than, for example, the Disgaea series, and I love Disgaea! I know that Disgaea games are not all the same, I’m just saying Summon Night have more changes per game (except the PSP remakes, they have pretty the same system).

    Oh no, I forgot about SN5! ;A;
    I’m not sure if I’ll even be able to save up the money to buy it now. But, I will strive to attain it some time this year. ;u;

  • Kamakuma

    Ugh… This has really hurt my heart today. I never knew anything past Summon knight 2 was made… Mark my words I WILL translate this one day even if a partial patch this has just brought me to tears. T.T

      I will be rooting for you.
