Summon Night Writer Miyakozuki Kei Hasn’t Heard of New Plans For the Series

Summon Night writer said there are no talks for more Summon Night games, plans to end the story of Lyndbaum with the final Summon Night U:X novel.

Miyakozuki Kei, the writer of the Summon Night series, said on Twitter he hasn’t been contacted regarding a new sequel in the series. He plans to end the series as a whole with a final novel.

As you already know, Felistella together with D3 Publisher announced it’s working on a brand new action RPG titled Maglam Lord. We detailed everything revealed on Maglam Lord so far in a separate article. When Felistella and D3 Publisher teased the game before its reveal, some fans expected something related to Summon Night. Miyakozuki Kei addressed those fans on Twitter on September 8, after the Maglam Lord reveal. Here’s the tweet and our translation:

Miyakozuki Kei: “I’ll use this opportunity to properly tell everyone. I know many are eagerly waiting for a sequel. It’s painful to say but at the moment I haven’t heard of any new plans”.

Miyakozuki Kei didn’t explicitly say the name, but he’s definitely speaking of Summon Night. He added in another tweet:

Miyakozuki Kei: “Just like when I decided when I started the novel series, the final volume of U:X will be the end of story of Lyndbum for me. I’m sorry I’m taking so long to finish it.”

“U:X” refers to the Summon Night U:X novel series, explaining the events between Summon Night 4 and 5, and featuring characters from all first four games. The series is illustrated by Iizuka Takeshi (Kuroboshi Kouhaku) and Watanuki Nao. U:X  is supposed to be three volumes. The first one, A Foreigner From The Boundary, released on May 21, 2013. The second one, The Visitors Of Twilight, released on December 19, 2013. However, the third novel hasn’t been released yet.

Many fans are expecting the next Summon Night game to adapt these novels, but it looks like it’s not happening. For now, the franchise as a whole will end once the final SN U:X volume is released. Miyakozuki Kei specified that “it’ll be the end for me” so perhaps future games can happen one day, but will be written by someone else.

Summon Night 6: Lost Borders first released on March 10, 2016 in Japan. It’s available on PlayStation Vita and PS4. We reviewed the game back when it released.

This week’s Famitsu magazine will have additional details on Maglam Lord we’ll be covering as soon as we can.
