Brave Frontier and The Alchemist Code publisher gumi Inc. has announced that a new game will soon join the Brave Frontier universe. Brave Frontier: The Last Summoner is an upcoming standalone RPG that will launch later this year.
Not to be confused with Brave Frontier 2, which is only available in Japan at this time, The Last Summoner will be a spin-off set in the extended Brave Frontier universe. The game will leave behind the series’ central characters in favor of a new cast and a new story. It will also opt for more detailed 2D sprites rather than the original game’s pixel-art graphics.
Set a thousand years after the events of Brave Frontier, the game will tell the story of Brook, a young crystal harvester that will go on a quest that will delve into the tales of the last summoner. From a gameplay standpoint, the new Brave Frontier title will feature an army mechanic that will have a large number of characters fighting in each battle.
Brave Frontier: The Last Summoner is scheduled to be released this summer on Android and iOS devices. Look for a pre-registration campaign to begin in the near future.
gumi Inc. and its subsidiary Alim Co are responsible for the releases of Brave Frontier, The Alchemist Code, and Phantom of the Kill. Alim Co also developed one of Square Enix’s flagship mobile titles, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius.
Brave Frontier: The Last Summoner will be free to play and contain in app purchases.
