Gaijinworks polling for interest in UMD games for PSP

by Nemoide Wed Jul 08, 2015 10:47 pm

So Gaijinworks (of "being run by Victor Ireland from Working Designs" fame) is looking to release Summon Night 5 for PSP on UMD. They have an online sign-up where you can register for a mailing list about updates but if they can't get 6,000 people to register, it sounds like they'll just release the game digital only.

I know very little about the Summon Night series; I think this will be the first main/numbered game to get an English release. And hey, I still want physical media for my PSP! They plan on doing a similar thing for Class of Heroes 3 eventually.
Of course, I have still yet to get around to actually playing Class of Heroes 2...

The main series games from what I recall are supposed to be SRPG's unlike the spin offs on gba which were more traditional rpg's with a battle system similar to Tales of Phantasia from what I recall, I wish they'd release a collection of the earlier games on say the vita or something since I'd heard about the originals but never had the time nor energy to learn another language like that...

My systems: NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, original gba, gba sp(001), ds lite, 3ds, vita, psp, PSone(101 model) ps2, ps3(320gb model), ps4, retron 5, and Dreamcast.

Same here :lol:

Also, I remember Victor mentioning that if the poll got to around 4500, it could be released physically but with a slightly increased price.

I've done my part and signed up. Now I guess we cross our fingers.

When did the poll go up? I'm curious because the page says it'll be up for 30 days to gauge interest and it's already at 4,000 of 6,000. So if it just went up recently, I'd say that's a good sign.

^I think it went up the beginning of June? Not sure but I know they extended the deadline because it was going kinda slow around E3. Not sure how long they extended it for though, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't extended by another month.

Not sure if I'll buy it. But I'll add a signature.

Maybe if I save a fiver each week?

Signed up for the mailing list.
I would have no idea about the possibility of a US Summon Night 5 if not for this thread.

Hoping for the Class of Heroes 3 as well (gots to have it as a trilogy).
...just another lost soul...

Just did a little digging on the Gaijinworks forum.

From July 5:

So polling should end this week, but it sounds like they're going to be going ahead and making those UMDs!

Apparently pre-sales start next week! :D

Also, sounds like there will be an extra thing going with it:

It's going to bump the cost another couple bucks, but when people see what it is, they will be astounded. (At least I hope they are, and I'm not just completely typing-delusional)

Not sure what it could be, but I'm excited for it either way haha.
