Log Into A Lengthy Digimon World Re:Digitize Trailer

By Ishaan . May 23, 2012 . 5:31pm

Digimon World Re:Digitize’s release is still a couple of months away, but Namco Bandai are ramping up the promotions well in advance. A manga is scheduled to begin serializing in V Jump magazine in June, and today, they released a new trailer for the game as well. It’s a little low-res, but you can watch it below:




The trailer indicates that almost all the popular Digimon from the anime series, including seasons 3 and 5, will make it into the game. Digimon World Re:Digitize is slated for release on July 19th on the PSP.

  • MrKappa

    I want this game but Bamco is so notorious for NOT localizing their games.

    • MrRobbyM

      You can’t blame them, really. It’s for the PSP.

      • LynxAmali

         I think he’s reffering to localizing games period.


        • MrRobbyM



      •  Won’t this game also be available as a compatible DL for Vita? I mean, it’s an alternative if they cannot afford or risk a marketing flaw with PSP UMD version for an overseas port…

        • MrRobbyM

          Possible, I guess. I just don’t know how well Digimon, digital download, Bamco and PSP would fare in the states, you know?

        • Yeah, it’s gonna be on the JP playstation network so it’s playable on the Vita. 

  • Is it me, or is it the same Seiyuu Trio from most modern Anime Shows?

    • Shiraishi Ryoko (Voiced Akari, Mervamon, Opposumon from Xros Wars) – Main Character/Taiga

      Hino Satoshi (Voiced Sai from Naruto) – Nicolai “Nico” Petrov

      Satou Satomi (Voiced Wendy from Fairy Tail) – Rindou Akiho

      • Taiga!? MC name is Taiga!? 

        • Renaldi Saputra

          yes, u can see the name written in katakana

        • Renaldi Saputra

          but it’s somewhat funny that his name is Taiga.. well, the girl from toradora was named Taiga too, that’s why. LOL

          • I am actually thinking of Fujimura Taiga lol.

  • I just wish there was some way to use a non-Japanese credit card rather than ordering Japanese PSN point cards which are crazy expensive for reasons beyond me.

    • Exkaiser

       I’ve only seen Japanese PSN points go for the converted Yen cost.

      Are you sure it’s not just because of the strong Yen?

  • aw-HELL yeah! freaking Beelzemon and Doru-line! damn yes!

  • Guest

    That blonde boy with the glasses sounds a lot like Natsu from Fairy Tail and Amaimon from Ao no Exorcist. o.o

    • Sorry, its not them…… Shiage frm Index 2 is in Digimon!? He also the MC frm Shana.

      • Renaldi Saputra


      • boundries_san

        To THE XANADU!!!!!

  • sherimae1324

    I Want iT now!!!!!!!!! i said NoW!!!!


  • Localization would be nice :(

    • It is for PSP… so… unlikely.

      • Hey hey hey, if Corpse Party and (soon to the released) Black Rock Shooter: The Game got localized why not this too? 

        • Whatever happened to BRS? lol I haven’t heard from whoever is localizing it for like ever. But I suppose you got me with Corpse Party. But that is a completely different game.

          • Raharu95

            NISA is localizing black rock shooter. But they have made not mention of it since they asked if people wanted a special edition or to localize it with the original opening song

          • That is what I thought.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Still they can mention SOMETHING about, like say that they still plan to localize. Right now, it’s getting a little uncertain at this point if the game will localize and be canceled like Grand Knights History (however this was due to Vanillaware’s end who were tied up with Dragon’s Crown or something).

  • Wow!!! All of my fav. digimon are in this!!! Especially the Leomon family (BanchoLeomon!?) and Beelzemon!!! (and to think beelzebub is a fly monster in DeSu lol)

    Talking MC!! Not complaining. We have DeSu protag as MC, pink haired Yuzu, blond Masaomi/Daichi, Tico and kid Izaya as teammates!? This is fun!! (spotting lookalike tht is)

    Someone plz localised this game….. even if it sub only…..

    • boundries_san

      Being Leomon is sad.T_T i believe we will some Leomon dying too for this game lol.

      • Christopher Nunes

        Could be the first that a Leomon doesn’t die? You never know and a a nice surprise too for long time fans!

        • boundries_san

          Leomon not dying?? Blasphemy!!! It is like saying Lancer will not die lol.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            in xros wars leomon didn’t die, he revived from being madleomon

          • boundries_san

            Well at least he did die once from being madleomon.

          • Weeell, Lancer technically DIDN”T die……. I would go out of my way to save Leomon, even if it means destroy the world or be the overlord.

          • boundries_san

            Lancer didn’t die????? Final Death Lancer???

  • Nitraion

    If only it’s still Digimon golden days or somehow released by atlus/NISA
    MC seiuyu lots like Mahiro from nyaratohotep lol

  • I see Lilamon

    But where is Lilymon??

    • Renaldi Saputra

      definitely exist in the game

  • Trying to not get my hopes up for Ranamon and Kazemon. But there is hope for Renamon *shakes fists in the air*

  • Spirit Macardi

    I wish Digimon was still a series worth localizing. I miss the days of Saban and Fox Kids where the anime was not only broadcast, but it was a strong contender with Poke’Mon. Hell, the dub itself was fantastic, having talented voice actors like Steve Blum (who was also one of the writers), Crispin Freeman, and eventually even Kyle Hebert!

    I wish that was still the case, especially since Saban has made a sudden return with the latest Power Rangers series. It wouldn’t even need to be them though. Funimation certainly has a great relationship with Toei, and I could name several of their voice actors who would be great fits for Xros Wars characters.

    Maybe I’m just being hopeful though…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      probably they won’t do dubbing for xros wars bcos there’re some ecchi scenes. And IIRC they also cut some scenes in the previous dubbed series right??

      • boundries_san

        ecchi scenes???………well i do know one episode on those stupid dance episode but other than that, i don’t think so.

        • Spirit Macardi

          I’m thinking he’s referring to Mervamon’s jiggle physics, as well as Lilithmon’s Digixros form where she gains a talking crotch x3

          •  Vilemon crotch and bewbs.

        • LynxAmali

          Any scene involving Mervamon and/or Lilithmon.

          • Wow….digimon has gone…..kinky. Maybe I should watch this……..

      • Spirit Macardi

        To an extent. Digimon Tamers practically kept everything though, even the utterly nightmarish imagery.

      • Ecchi scenes!? In Digimon? I thought the target age group is lower….. (Then again we have Tamers…..)

        • Renaldi Saputra

          IIRC, tamers didn’t have any ecchi scenes, only the tone was darker so the targeted group were likely teens++… and about xros wars, well i heard that the targeted group was lower indeed bcos the tone wasn’t too dark. But as you can see, anime now are using fan-services in order to satisfy the viewers.. and so are digimon. That’s why..

    • MrRobbyM

      The first 4 Digimon seasons are all great parts of my childhood. The anime was SO much better than Pokemon. Pokemon was more charming while Digimon was cool. A million times cooler.

      • boundries_san

        If u ask me, both of them had their own appeal here. Pokemon and its whole world is always very appealing to me as it put me on the trainer shoes and makes me wanted to be one.

        While Digimon, i can said that the digimon and the story is much better compared to Pokemon. It is just that the inconsistency especially on the game series, makes me sad lol especially……. “Agumon Burst mode” anyone?

        • MrRobbyM

          True. My main gripe with the Pokemon anime is that they never had a clear path. Almost every episode was some different, out-of-nowhere problem that they HAD to deal with. Throw in Team Rocket trying to stir up some trouble and you got yourself an episode of Pokemon. Not that it’s necessarily a bad thing.

          Digimon(the first few seasons, haven’t watched recent ones) on the other hand, felt more like a continuous adventure. There was a main goal and nearly every episode was related to it. Sure there were filler episodes but not nearly as many as Pokemon. I could go on and on about why Digimon is a more solid anime but I’d be here forever. But both are good in different ways.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            pokemon anime was totally sucks (except the movies, they’re epic, definitely would be very epic if there wasn’t Ash in them)

          • boundries_san

            Read the manga. Pokemon Adventures is the true pokemon there.^^

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    whats the point in getting all hyped  I ready know this isnt going to see the light of day out of japan

    • sherimae1324

       because someone like me is……ummmmm …. can understand nippon    

       oni-chan ^_^

      • Renaldi Saputra

        even though this game gets high pre-orders at amazon.co.jp


    • boundries_san

      Umm there are people who will import this game?(Like me???)

  • Kitestwinblades

    Never ceases to amaze me with the stuff they put on PSP.  I wonder if they could put the first 4 dot hack games on PSP with networking(like fragment) r.r; Or maybe that and GU on Vita. I would play that to no end.

    In any case, This is looking great! Free roam is pretty much what I love most about the Digimon world games, and they nail the scenery every single time XD

  • icecoffemix

    Whoah Omnimon get around by hovering and Megakabuterimon too but his method… rocket ass?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      alturkabuterimon moves with the rocket from its bottom indeed, just like in adventure 1

      • icecoffemix

        Wow really? I completely forgot about that little tidbit, maybe deliberately. :p

      • at least it’s not Teddie new persona….. DAT SMILE

    • Lol I found this –> http://wikimon.net/images/2/2a/Atlurkabuterimon_art_mini.gif

  • Renaldi Saputra

    please man, why Bamco Japan don’t make it overseas?? it would be very great.. C’mon, this game gets the best seller PSP game recently on amazon.co.jp. Bringing it overseas wouldn’t be a bad choice for sure… http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/bestsellers/videogames/13305031/ref=zg_bs_nav_vg_1_vg

  • TheSwordUser

    If this won’t get localized, or at very least, menu-translated by fans, this will probably break my heart. Don’t be cheap on this title Namdai, *please*.

  • Please localize this, and I hope Xros Wars gets dubbed too. We desperately need Digimon to make a come back here in states.

  • boundries_san

    I am soooo going to pre-order this game lol. It seems now most of my game is becoming psp here lol.

  • Localization please! I wanted a Lost Evolution localization, but this took it’s place as soon as screenshots to be released! I WANT THIS!
    I’m also happy Agumon doesn’t have the red hand straps, I like the original better.

  • Yuzh

    where i type RE••• DIGITIZE to enter the digiworld?

    • Maybe u need to bribe purple hair. /me throw money on screen. Not working.

      • Goggles. Mostly the human main characters of the franchise wear Goggles.

        Though an exception to the tradition is Digimon Saver’s Masaru Daimon anime-wise.

        • Yuzh

          ok guys i got the googles for us, lets get going!


    It’s so unbearable to even read the PSP section on here because 99% of it is Japan only with zero chance of localization…

    • boundries_san

      Tips for u.^^ Avoid PSP!!!

  • Christopher Nunes

    Day One purchase baby! I don’t care if it’s in Japanese, I want it!
    It will be the BEST Digimon World, no Digimon GAME, ever!

  • After further analysis of the vid (been busy)….. DigiTower=Tartarus!? 
    The way they “drop” into the “Digital World” is strangely similar to those of Digimon Adventure.
    Is the digivolve permanent or lk those of anime series?
    Wht happen when the digimon dies? I not really understand the digimemory stuff.
    The battle system look as random if not more than those of fate/EXTRA…..

    Also, Kidzaya don’t sound like a kid at all lol. And I just notic PinkYuzu sounds lk Wendy…. 

    • In my experience of the first Digimon World game, your partner keeps his evolved/Digivolved form post Evolution/Digivolution.

      After your partner reaches at the end of its lifespan, IIRC, this game will let choose to either transfer or carry over your deceased Digimon’s parameters into the new one who will hatch from a Digi-Egg. Or, you can convert their data into Digi-Memories.

      Digi-Memories here function similarly to its anime counterparts in the first season of Xros Wars; Which are Summon attacks.

    • Renaldi Saputra

       yes, as Vince said before.. you can either revive it into a new born digi or convert into digi-memories. Digi-memories things would be the only xros’ term that is used in this game

  • Ridho Siregar

    I’m still thinking the protagonist’s arms are too short, makes his body unproportional.

  • Abel.exe

    A digimon game + Devil Survivor art style = I need this localized so much!!

  • alexsteward

    Well I know what this year’s Xmas gift to myself will be. :)
