imageNamco Bandai’s RPG countdown clock evaded an early Famitsu reveal, but may have been leaked another way.


Japanese blogs are reporting Digimon Story: Lost Evolution, a new Digimon RPG for the Nintendo DS is slated for 2010. Could this be the game Namco Bandai is teasing?


In addition to Digimon Story, Dragon Ball DS 2 Assault! Red Ribbon Army, a sequel to Dragon Ball DS is scheduled to ship on February 11 and it’s also for the DS.

    Oh, I hope it’s not Digimon. I was really looking forward to something else

    errrrrrrrr ok …….. this is still not oficial i wont abandon hope just yet …

      I…wouldn’t do that if I were you. The URL hinted at a Bandai property. This has to be it.

      • ElTopo

        lol thats just so sad. Is Digimon still big…anywhere?

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          You know, I don’t know. I never was a big Digimon fan and never paid attention to the games. I guess we’ll see what sales are like in Japan when this game releases…

          • MisterNiwa

            I am sad that it is Digimon.

          • http://www.siliconera.com Spencer

            To be fair, I’m not 100% sure it’s Digimon, I’m filling in the gaps here. But there is a Digimon RPG in the pipeline and as Ishaan notes the URL suggests the RPG is a Bandai property, not a Namco one.Digimon is a Bandai property so….

          • MisterNiwa

            Is this actually a RPG that anybody wants nowadays!?

  • jarrodand

    lol. First Keroro, now this… Bandai ruins everything.

    Seems like most people are quite disappointed, myself included.

    The last Digimon game I played on the GBA (a present from a friend) was a disappointment and even though it was a while ago, I can’t help but imagine this game will probably play more or less the same.

    I feel as if a million voices were crying in excitement, and then were suddenly disappointed.

  • Pichi

    Looking forward to Dragon Ball 2 DS. Had a feeling they’ll make a sequel.

    er, really? like, has any digimon games ever been treated like this? with teaser or countdown or stuff like that? i don’t think it’s digimon. it’s something else, though i’m not so sure it’s a big title we all expect. probably gonna revive old IP…

    Another shameful marketing ploy successfully executed. Hook, Line, and Sinker. I think we’ve been burned enough by our own vivid imaginations with countdowns. Why do we torture ourselves so much?! =) Well, hey, it may not be a popular series, but everyone around the world was talking about Namco Bandai for a bit, right? Guess that should make some PR people happy.

    I don’t believe this…

  • epy

    Dissapointing doesn’t quite cover it. As jarrodand said, first Keroro, now this. Feels like Bamco is just trolling us.

      It would be pretty funny if the countdown turned out to be a Rickroll.
      May as well be, it seems.

  • Saturnus

    rofl is this for real? All that hype for another Digimon RPG… For DS?

    well maybe there is a bit of hope that this is not the RPG they intended to reveal.

    “It’s just a little airborne! It’s still good, it’s still good!”.

    Well, here’s hoping it still might be Guadia Quest.

  • Ereek

    This. This is why I do not get myself excited over countdowns anymore.

    Especially from Bamco.

    Maybe KOS-MOS will make a cameo appearance.

    Something fishy is going on here.

    First, has Jump ever leaked this early?

    Second, the art on the website seemed something that would’ve been made for a console release, has Bandai ever made that kind of 3D art for a DS Digimon game before?

    And there were already two DS Digimon games, and Bandai’s site (and now Bandai Namco’s site) has lited a Digimon game for Wii for a long while.

    Why are they putting out a 3rd DS game while having released NONE for Wii even though they’ve been planning to for ages?

    I wouldn’t be surprised and am actually hoping that the leak is fake and it’s actually a Digimon game for Wii, I figured it was Digimon, but a Wii release after listing it for so long seemed far more logical than yet another DS release.

    It can’t be…
    Can it?

    nice! well i liked the digimon games though, the ds ones werent good, the digimon 3 was excellent

  • Tokyo Guy

    Wow…what a disappointment.

  • kupomogli

    There’s only one Digimon game I’ve played and it’s a PSX ripoff of Super Smash Bros. It’s not really good per se, but it’s pretty fun.

    That’s it, I give up on Namco Bandai.

  • Kuza21

    You gotta be kidding me…

  • PKMongoose

    Oh now come on. The Digimon RPGs for the DS are actually pretty decent. Everyone just bums on it for being similar to Pokemon.

    I DARE any of you to actually try one of the Digimon DS RPGs and say they’re horrible. I DARE YOU.
