Dark Fantasy RPG Dark Summoner Game Update: New Features and Event!

Ranking Badges are items that can be obtained by participating in events and then traded for exclusive Monsters. To celebrate the new badge system, Yoko Tsukamoto, who has produced many of the game’s concept art and Monster designs, has created a new vision for one of the strongest Monsters. This Monster is the highest rarity and can be obtained through the new Ranking Badge system.

New Event: “Aphotic Zone”

Embalm Orbs to Unleash Monsters!

The “Aphotic Zone” takes place in a dark and eerie forest.

Unleash Monsters from Orbs

Players will progress through the stage, find mysterious orbs, and embalm them to unleash Monsters, get various points, rewards, and complete a Monster Archive. Players will also compete via rankings.

Complete Monster Archives

Each type of Orb corresponds to different types of Monsters. When these Monsters appear, they will be registered in a player’s Archive. The more Monsters a player collects, the better rewards they will receive. A special zone also awaits those who complete specific requirements. The final zone will drop “Corrupt Orbs” and provide players with even greater rewards.

New Species Skill Summon
Species Skills have greatly changed the battle environment for players. There will be a new Summon with 8 different types of species with big boosts in their stats. Furthermore, in response to core player feedback, there will be winged Monsters.

What is Dark Summoner?
Dark Summoner is one of the most popular online dark fantasy adventure games for smartphones.

When assembling their armies, players must Summon Monsters, raise them into more powerful creatures, and find the strongest Monster combinations to dominate their enemies. Player-versus-player battles and powerful Raid challenges are both featured in the game, allowing players to choose how they interact with fellow Summoners.
The game features more than 5,000 Monsters featuring original artwork created specifically for Dark Summoner by many internationally renowned artists.
