Well apparently the beastmen are able to summon entities to fight for them, but whether or not these are the traditional summons, who can say.
Personally I'd kind of like to see a summon system more like FF8. Many Final Fantasies are absent a summoner "class," in lieu of everyone being able to summon a single avatar. I think it'd be cool if we could all build affinities with an avatar and once in a while summon them for a nifty effect.
Ok, now we're going to get slash fiction of Wint x Kachi somehere... rule 34 and all...
Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.
Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
