“We want to make a truly fun game!” It was this simple desire that brought our team together. The things that we thought were important for a fun game were the ability to play with friends, easy-to-use controls, amazing graphics and the very best music!
We designed Grand Summoners so that you can take on quests with up to four friends, with each player controlling one character. The controls are new and refreshing, and we worked on the graphics and music together with those we liked to ensure they came out perfect. We hope that everyone who plays the game enjoys it as much as we do!

Please see the link below for the trailer released today.




Grand Summoners is directed by Hisatoshi Hayakashi from AIDIS Inc. (Shibuya, Tokyo).
Hisatoshi Hayakashi has been developing mobile games since 2001, and in 2013 created Brave Frontier as the game’s general director. After that, he was also involved with Final Fantasy Brave Exvius (Square Enix holdings Co., Ltd), and in 2016 stepped down from that position in order to found his own company, AIDIS.
After founding AIDIS, the essence of the Hayakashi-style of RPG was once again brought to life in Grand Summoners.

The game is developed by NextNinja (Shinagawa, Tokyo. CEO: Masayuki Yamagishi), a company with many years of experience in mobile game creation and management.
In addition, the music is composed by Noriyasu Agematsu of Elements Garden, joined by Tetsuya Kakihara, Saori Goto and Satoshi Hino on vocals for a majestic soundscape that brings the game’s world to life.

■Comment from GOOD SMILE COMPANY CEO Takanori Aki
It has already been a year since the release of Grand Summoners in Japan, but we finally managed to find time to put out an American release. We have released several games by ourselves and with other companies in the past, but this will be our first game to be released overseas. This is a really fun, GSC-like game, and I hope that everyone will enjoy supporting it. You’ll love it if you try it!

There will also be various other in-game items given as login bonuses. We will be updating this information regularly, so keep an eye out!
