Summon Night 6 Wonderful Edition Unveiled

GAIJINWORKS Goes Beyond Limited and Collector’s Editions With Fan-Pleasing Extras

Independent game publisher GAIJINWORKS has officially revealed the Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Wonderful Edition, a deluxe premium box set of its upcoming strategy/role-playing game for the PlayStation 4. Starting today, fans can purchase digital reservation voucher codes that entitle them to physical copies of the Wonderful Edition when it is released in February 2017. Weighing in at nearly four pounds, each Wonderful Edition box includes:

  • Summon Night 6: Lost Borders PS4 Game with multi-sided artwork coversheet, full-color instruction manual and full-color disc label 
  • Dust-jacketed, hardcover 200+ page Premium Art Book that chronicles the Summon Night series
  • Summon Night 6: Lost Borders complete soundtrack CD (32 tracks) with full-color disc label 
  • Exclusive 7" plush figure of one of the three sidekick characters from the game (Patch, Quilt or Linen), randomly inserted 
  • Four exclusive PVC-molded drink coasters, one for each of the main characters and one of the game logo 
  • Exclusive 21" x 30" Summon Night 6: Lost Borders wall poster
  • All contents will be enclosed in an exclusive collector's box labeled with a serial-numbered hologram

GAIJINWORKS president Victor Ireland is a pioneer of value-added video-game packaging; his previous company, Working Designs, was known for publishing games with such lavish gaming firsts as pack-in jewelry, soundtracks, cloth maps and “making of” DVDs. “The Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Wonderful Edition is the result of 25 years of experience in creating new and exciting physical video game packaging and extras that surprise and delight our fans,” says Ireland. “I don’t think there’s been a better Collector’s Edition package of any game in the last ten years...definitely not for the price point we’re setting. This was too novel to be simply a Collector’s Edition or something new, and that’s why I’ve called it the Wonderful Edition.

Available exclusively through the Web site, the Summon Night 6: Lost Borders Wonderful Edition can be reserved for a discounted price of $129 between now and September 15th. After that date, reservation vouchers will sell for the full price of $149 until the end of October, when the presale window closes. Shipping charges are additional and will vary by region. After October 31st, no more copies of the Wonderful Edition will be available for purchase. This is a strictly limited, serial- numbered edition of the game—GAIJINWORKS will only manufacture enough copies of the Wonderful Edition to fulfill the preorders that are placed before the October 31st deadline.

Fans who miss the Wonderful Edition presale window will still be able to score standard physical retail copies of Summon Night 6 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in North America, but they will not include any of the bountiful Wonderful Edition extras. Digital (PSN) versions of the game will also be downloadable in North America, South America and Europe.

Originally published in Japan by Bandai Namco, Summon Night 6: Lost Borders weaves an emotional tale of friendship and discovery that begins in the sparsely populated “cocoon world” of Fillujah, where the three main characters (Raj, Amu and Ist) live in virtual isolation. Each has a single companion, a flying sidekick with an amazing special power, and they are all surprised when dozens of strangers begin to suddenly appear—literally falling out of the clear, blue sky. Lost Borders can be played and enjoyed without any knowledge of the previous games in the series, but fans will recognize that the mysterious strangers are actually returning characters from all of the mainline Summon Night games.
