Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe and WITCHCRAFT have announced a brand-new adventure/tactical RPG for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC Digital – Digimon Survive.
Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Digimon Anime, Digimon Survive presents a brand-new adventure set in a mysterious world with characters designed by Uichi Ukumo, and music by the much-acclaimed Tomoki Miyoshi.
Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger.
As they fight their way back home through an animated world of difficult decisions and deadly battles, players’ choices throughout the game will impact the evolution of their monster allies and the final ending. Battles in the game are fought in 2D, in a more classic SRPG style.
This is a great way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the much-beloved anime. I myself was a huge fan of Digimon (my favourite was Dark WarGreymon). It’s also great to see the series make such an impressive aesthetic choice with the graphics. The manga stylings of Digimon Survive are charming and seem to be in the keeping of games Bandai Namco are a part of. With the Naruto: Ultimate franchise, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and now Digimon Survive manga and anime fans have a bevy of manga themed video games to choose from.
What has got me intrigued about Digimon Survive is that the trailer seems to allude to the fact that players can make decisions that can alter the flow of the events of the game. What this means for the player and the Digital World in this particular iteration of the game has yet to be seen but it has me excited and after the slightly lacklustre previous titles in the Digimon gaming franchise (looking at you Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth). Stay tuned to the digital space that is GamEir for more news about Digimon Survive 🙂
