Digimon World Re:Digitize To See Manga Adaptation This June

By Ishaan . May 19, 2012 . 12:00pm

Namco Bandai’s Digimon World Re:Digitize game on PSP is also getting a manga adaptation, revealed in a recent issue of Japan’s V Jump magazine. Fujino Kouhei, assistant artist on the Eyeshield 21 manga, will be providing the illustrations, and the series will begin serialization in June.

 

Digimon World Re:Digitize is slated for release on July 19th. The game begins with the player’s character getting lost in the Digital World. There, he runs into other players that are also trapped in the Digital World, as well as characters like Tekken’s Lili, who happens to be playing the game as a regular player.

 

Thanks to DrakosAmatras for the heads up!

      maybe to make an anime adaption is still long, but manga adaption is still great enough

      Umm.. Japanese language lesson?

    • MrRobbyM

      In your defense, learning a different language is a long and expensive process.

    I would like to get this, just because my waifu Lili…I mean Lily is in this game.

      But she won’t appear much….. She IRL playing the MMORPG.

      • Renaldi Saputra

            Don’t mind us.

  • Crowlevel8

    This is so cool ヽ(*≧ω≦)ノ ! Hopefully they’ll make it into an anime. After the 4 season of Digimon, I haven’t lost myself in the Digital World for a while now, It’s about time i do again.

    • http://www.facebook.com/alwaysbored.andrade Jonathan Andrade

      Only 4 seasons? You missed Savers, and Xros Wars!

      • Masengan

        I’m still an avid watcher, to this day I have seen all of the seasons including Xros Wars “2″ and sure some are better than other but it’s the nostalgia that keeps me watching.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Damn, wish they got the artist for the game to do it.

    • MrRobbyM

      I would be all over that if they did.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      Yeah…. is Suzuhito busy or wht? Or he can’t draw digimon……
      Sama case with the soon to be out (?) Devil Survivor manga.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        maybe he (yasuda-san) is only specialized in making human characters not the mystical (DSV) or digital (digimon) creatures..

  • http://www.facebook.com/djalmalves Djalma Alves

    Unbelievable!

    We did it!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      HIP HIP HORRAY!!!!

  • Altoire

    Hopefully this will raise people’s awareness for the game until they are able to decide to localize the game for us..

  • Renaldi Saputra

    F*CK TO THE YES!!!!!!

  • Klaus00

    ooh artist of Eyeshield 21′s manga? Could they make a Hiruma cameo possible then? :O

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q6NXXGMO5XNSMJ64NIHYHFP56A Vince

       Dang, he’d make a compatible partner for Beelzemon.

      YAHAAAAAAAAA~!!!

      • Klaus00

        actually I was thinking more of Myotismon. Beelzemon would work too , but I doubt those 2 will be granted to a cameo character. XP YA-HA!

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Q6NXXGMO5XNSMJ64NIHYHFP56A Vince

           Ahhhh. I thought it was Beelzemon because they both wield guns. >XD
