Summon Night 6 Variants, Voice Casts Announced!

"Borders be found this May 23!"

As work continues feverishly on the English-language localization of Summon Night 6: Lost Borders, now set for a North American release on May 23, GAIJINWORKS is releasing new details about the innovative player-selectable variant packaging of the PlayStation®4 version of the game. The company is also pleased to announce that the recording of the English audio tracks has been completed; a list of the game’s voice actors can be found below.

Three different package designs will be offered for the standard retail version of Summon Night 6 for PlayStation®4. Each variant features one of three characters (Raj, Amu or Ist) on the back of the box and on the game disc label. A fourth variant is being produced exclusively for the Wonderful Edition box set that was only available by preorder placed prior to December of 2016.

As an additional bonus for day-one purchasers, the initial print run of Summon Night 6 physical copies for the PS4 and PlayStation®Vita will include a special voucher that can be mailed in (along with a $3.95 shipping/handling fee) to obtain a free copy of the game’s original soundtrack on CD (a $29.99 retail value). The free CD includes all of the music from the game and comes complete with a case and full-color disc art, both of which are different from the soundtrack CD included with the Wonderful Edition box set. Only the initial shipment of games will have this bonus item.

With the English-language studio recording sessions completed, the veteran cast of game, anime and movie voice actors who lent their talents to Summon Night 6: Lost Borders is now being revealed. The main characters, Raj and Amu, are played by newcomer Micah Duclos and Kathy Emma, a veteran of several Working Designs games who also sings the English version of the game’s theme song. John Truitt (best known as the voice of Ghaleon in the LUNAR series) voices their compatriot, Ist.
