After letting fans play a role in deciding what its UMD artwork would look like, Gaijinworks is now giving them a chance to help dictate the price of Summon Night 5.

For the next two weeks, the more retweets the tweet below gets, the cheaper the game will be. Its PlayStation Network release was set to be priced at $35, but every time it hits a milestone, it'll drop in price by $1, going as low as $29.

  • 250 Retweets: $33.99
  • 500 Retweets: $32.99
  • 1,000 Retweets: $31.99
  • 2,000 Retweets: $30.99
  • 4,000 Retweets: $29.99
  • 5,000 Retweets: $28.99

With 825 retweets as of this writing, it's currently slated to be priced at $33.

It's a fairly unusual approach to promoting a game, but the same could be said for the release itself. Summon Night 5 is a PSP game from 2013, and is the fifth entry in a series that has never been launched outside of Japan. That it's being released in English is seemingly a miracle, but Gaijinworks has made a name for itself by localizing niche Japanese games for western markets.

Gaijinworks also today released a 1080p version of the game's opening video, marking the first time it's been seen at such a high resolution. You can watch it above.

Summon Night 5 is getting both a digital and limited physical release. The former will be available on PSN for PSP and Vita sometime this fall, while the latter was only available for preorder earlier this year.
