    Bandai Namco's Summon Night 5 and Acquire's Class of Heroes 3 will be getting a localization courtesy of Gaijinworks and Monkey Paw. While Sommon Night 5 is planned to be released sometime this year in 2015, there is still no release window for Class of Heroes 3 yet.

    Full Story Here: http://www.siliconera.com/2015/04/23/summon-night-5-class-heroes-3-coming-west/

    While I may not be a fan of both these titles, it is still great news that there are still some PSP games that will be getting a localization.

    I still think they should have choosen the 3rd one, even with possible postgame spoilers (not like we'd get an official localization anyway).

    That'll depend on the sales of the game but PSP is literally the den of pirating (including me, of course. I have moved on to other consoles though)
    There's even a 6.61 Downgrader to go back to 6.60 for people who screwed up on Updating.

    It will be available on vita, so I hope the sales are decent enough.

    Awesome. I'll definitely order both games if they manage to secure physical releases. Really cool getting official PSP releases in 2015.

    Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono 3 isn't a surprise. :huh: I wonder if Gaijinworks will be picking spin-offs in the future like Shin Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono: Toki no Gakuen (released almost 2 years after the 3rd one).

    Now, Summon Night 5... THIS was a surprise, a good surprise. :creep:

    Well, it technically takes place a long time after the fourth one, so it is kinda stand alone, though it still has some ties to the third one.

    Thanks, I had almost forgotten about this one. Hope they can get enough interest in it. Would be awesome with one final UMD release.

    Well I hope they reach their goal. I can already imagine on how this game would turn into quite a rare collector's item in the next 10 or 15 years.

    If you like turn based battles, you will enjoy this one. Swordcraft story is a spin-off, this one is the main series, which has a special focus in summoning (it has crafting elements too).

    Awesome. The Canadian dollar sucks right now so it's gonna cost me a little more than I had planned but I can live off cup noodles for a week for one final UMD release.

    Gameplay trailer released:



    It covers the rpg aspect of the game, next one should have the conversations and minigames.

    Long gameplay teaser up:

    Remember, you can play it in psp/psvita.

    Btw, the swordcraft story reference is sweet as hell.

    Looks really nice. It's a shame most people seem to have moved on from legit PSP releases at this point.
