What is Dark Summoner?

Dark Summoner is one of the most popular online dark fantasy adventure games for smartphones.
Players assemble and command a custom army of Monsters to take on challenging Missions and defeat powerful Bosses. 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.
