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
, both originally PlayStation titles, are headed for the DS. We haven't been able to glean much information from the Japanese magazine's photographed page yet, but it looks like the two SRPGs
will be released separately and not as a collection, the first one slated for Spring 2008, its sequel planned for Summer.
Though the GBA and DS received several Summon Night
, the first two of which were eventually brought to the US by Atlus
, this will be the first time that entries from the main series see a handheld port. Neither Summon Night 1
ever made it stateside -- this seems like an excellent opportunity for a North American publisher to finally localize the games!
