The DS seems to be the default platform of choice for Flight-Plan's Summon Night series now. In addition to the remakes of Summon Night 1 and 2, an original Summon Night spinoff, Twin Age, has been released on the handheld (and, of course, localized by Atlus). In the latest V-Jump, Namco Bandai ha...

The PS2's library is about to get a bit more toxic, as Atlus announced that it will localize Japan's Poison Pink in North America, calling the strategy RPG by the less interesting title, Eternal Poison. In typical Atlus fashion, the game looks decidedly niche, though if its promise of "a uniquely ...

RPGs, by definition, are immersive – hence the name "role-playing game." Yet, the existence of the fourth wall in video games is an obstacle when it comes to such follies, so the software must rely on a number of charms to keep the player engrossed. The story is often the driving force behin...

This week's release list looks pretty healthy, if you ask us. We've got some games for just about everyone, including an RPG, along with some action/adventure titles. Oh, and some licensed titles, for good measure. So, what will you be playing this weekend? New game, or something in your collectio...

No one told us it was licensed game week. Amidst all the movie property-influenced titles, try not to miss Summon Night: Twin Age if you're interested in it -- it'll be the one with fewer copies at your local gaming store, most likely. Gotta have space for Kung Fu Panda, after all. The Incredi...

The latest batch of screens from Summon Night: Twin Age reveal fifteen of the game's characters, including the protagonists Aldo and Reiha. The images depict humans, Kascuza (the human-like beast race of the RPG), and some summoned beasts that appear. They can be seen in the gallery below, so be sur...

We realized today that we don't know Japan as well as we thought we did. With our reasoning, a new Gundam game + the popularity of the DS = cha-ching. While the debuting Emblem of Gundam had decent sales for its first week, though, taking the twelfth spot isn't all that impressive -- especially sinc...

Not only did the PSP gain momentum with the hideous brown, er, we mean shiny bronze model that released in Japan last week, but the Wii also beat out its portable cousin, sending the DS to third place in hardware sales: PSP: 92,411 Wii: 48,796 Nintendo DS: 42,435 PlayStation 3: 9,107 ...

Summon Night: Twin Age may be coming out two weeks later than expected, but at least you can look at the new screenshots in our gallery. Looking at the brightly-colored action RPG will allow you to imagine what it will be like to play using the stylus-based controls. You can stare dreamily at the s...

Summoning Summon Night: Twin Age into North American stores is proving to take longer than expected for publisher Atlus. When the localization of the stylus-controlled ARPG spinoff was first announced, it was given a release date of May 20th. Atlus just sent a press release out stating that they'v...

They hooked us up with a bunch of new screens on the game to accompany the others in our gallery, as well as the title's boxart. It's pretty much the usual business her...

Ball lightning is 1) a mysterious meteorological phenomenon, and 2) a pretty neat ability you'll be able to unlock via skill tree in Summon Night: Twin Age! We believe this to be one of Reiha's magical Summoning techniques; more importantly, we believe this to look like something fun to do to bust u...

Atlus just dropped a further six screenshots of Summon Night: Twin Age in our laps, and we'll say this much for the game: when you're not busy gawking at some of the finest ARPG greenery around, you can rely on the title to keep the battlegrounds densely populated. Also in our PR package today w...

2D action RPGs often have it rough when it comes to making impressive graphics. Due to the perspective, about 90% of the in-game graphics consist of grass, with the rest being tiny character sprites. Sometimes there are trees or shrubs in the grass. So to wow us with the graphics in an ARPG, you hav...

Not to be confused with Summons Night, the vampiric lawyer adventure, Summon Night: Twin Age has finally escaped Japan with the aid of increasingly prolific publisher, Atlus USA. The DS action RPG tasks players with guiding summoner Reiha and summonee (?) Aldo through a "richly woven tale of adven...

No more than two weeks after we goaded you into importing a discounted copy of Summon Night: Twin Age, Atlus has announced its plans to translate and bring the ARPG stateside this May 20th. If you're one of those unfortunate kids who made the mistake of following our advice, you have our apologies....

Playing import games can be an expensive hobby, but online shops like Play Asia provide some relief for your wallet, hosting frequent sales for Japan-only titles normally priced at $50+. This latest deal is for Summon Night: Twin Age (or Twin Edge, depending on where you look), an ARPG from Banprest...

Yee-haw, we're rounding up some wild game trailers today! Courtesy of an even bigger trailer rodeo over on Dengeki, we've got new videos of some of the most interesting, most anticipated, and most not-in-either-of-those-categories games coming out of Japan. You'll recognize Fist of the North Star a...

We recently learned via scans that the first two Summon Night RPGs were being remade for the DS, joining other tandem series remakes like Dragon Quests IV, V, and VI, and the simultaneously (but separately) releasing Ys I and II. These two Summon Nights, rather than coming out on the same day, will ...

Further emphasizing the DS's status as the system that companies want to rerelease their old RPGs on, the latest issue of Shonen Jump revealed today that Summon Night 1 and 2, both originally PlayStation titles, are headed for the DS. We haven't been able to glean much information from the Japanese ...
