Battle Season 1′s Taichi And Sora In Digimon World Re:Digitize

By Laura . June 13, 2012 . 5:12pm

Digimon World Re:Digitize supports wireless battle, which uses the PSP ad hoc connection to link up to four players together. The option is selected from the title menu, and from there, you can select to play Cooperative mode or Versus mode. Cooperative mode places all players against enemies, and there’s a special mode called Boss Raid that pits you against a boss from the game.

 

In contrast, Versus mode places all players in a free-for-all against each other. Fighting the wireless battles may get you rare items and titles upon victory, as well as unlock new evolutions. You can store up to ten Digimon in the DigiStorage to choose from for wireless battles. These can be selected and saved from Digimon you’ve raised and DigiMemories.

 

Guest characters will appear during the wireless battles, too. You can fight Taichi Yagami and Sora Takenouchi, protagonists from the first season of the anime, in battle against their partner Digimon. Only after you’ve defeated Taichi’s WarGreymon can you get a WarGreymon of your own.

 

(Interestingly, their appearance matches their appearance from the anime despite the supposed time lapse.)

There’s also new information available about a few locations on File Island. Powdery Cliffs (below) is an area with ever-falling snow, surrounded by ruins, sunken ships, and mountains.

 

 

Meanwhile, Binary Castle (above) is a strange area revered as a holy area, with arching ceilings and pillars covered with monitors. It’s said to be where all the data in File Island is calculated.

 

More information has been released about the DigiTower, too. The DigiTower, where the Coliseum and the training facilities are, is actually what was once Infinity Mountain. Enormous amounts of data constantly flow in and out of the tower between the Real World and the Digital World, and it can be said to be a pillar that supports and links both worlds.

 

Several more Digimon in the game have also been released. These include Omegamon, Rosemon, Vamdemon, DORUmon, MegaSeadramon, and MegaDramon. Most appear as enemies, though you can almost certainly raise them as well. DORUmon also manages the wireless battle menu for you.

 

Finally, there’s some more information about the plot involving GIGO Co. and the blackened Digimon. Digimon of this form are composed entirely of data crystals, which gives off a high energy but also constantly leaks data, causing the Digimon’s body to deteriorate. Someone who may hold the key to the secret behind these new Digimon may be Prof. Petrov, Nick’s father, who works at GIGO. (This information is available from this blog.)

    It would be awesome to battle Takuya, Davis or Ken, they are my favs. Then again, it might be weird to have a standard Digimon and its tamer fighting Takuya with an armour spirit lol.

    • LunarKnite

      I’d prefer some Tamers love. But this is good enough for me. Well, not quite, still needs to get brought over.

      • Mixkon

        I was thinking about this as well today… it’s really hard I guess for them to introduce Frontier characters in any game as ‘normal’ digimon due to their unique evolution from Human to Digimon… Wish they appeared in this game though!

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

        Include Puppet Girl or the Serious Girl!!! (Sry forgot their name)

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

      Maybe have Takuya appear as Agunimon. After the fight, Taiga will express surprise and shock as he sees the latter reverting back into a human.

    • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

      Well… they’ve already got Lili, a completely unrelated Tekken character in there. At this point, I wouldn’t think Agnimon would be that farfetched for a Digimon game that retreads the old times.

  • KotaroInugami

    Wish they’d match the art style. I feel like it was just copy a pasted. But I know that’s asking for a lot.

    • http://amc9988.deviantart.com/ amc99

       Yeah, it feel weird looking at those screenshot actually.

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

         Stock art, yep. Though you have to wonder what the anime characters look like in the game’s artstyle.

        • Barrylocke89

          Seeing as the artist is the same person that did the art for DeSu, I’d imagine they’d find an excuse to make Sora grow about 8 cupsizes bigger.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            8 cupsizes bigger IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN *MR.BEAN.JPG*

            Teenage Sora > Kid Sora.

  • xavier axol

    i really like the first apperance of digimon (season 1,2, and 3) were awesome. yup the good old times.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Just toss in the ability to fight Tagiru and Gumdramon/Arresterdramon and you’ll have my money. I don’t care that I can’t understand Japanese, I’ll find a way to play this.

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

      I also go for the two Young Hunters main human character and Digimon.

      Heck, throw in as well Takato with Guilmon, Agunimon (Takuya), Masaru with Savers Agumon and Taiki with Shoutmon since it’s 15th anniversary of the franchise.

    • http://www.facebook.com/FERCS Fer Carlo

      Man I hope Tagiru is the one fighting you I’d really have a laugh when I beat his whiny a**. For those who say Takato is the worst character. Sorry but Tagiru is the worst

      • Spirit Macardi

        I liked Tagiru. He was so insanely energetic that he was always fun to watch.

        Plus, he had his share of awesome moments. When FlameWizardmon stole his essence, he created more through sheer force of will. There was also the wake-up punch he delivered to Gumdramon, which gave me flashbacks to Gurren Lagann. Not to mention powering up Arresterdramon to Superior Mode, even though Super Evolution is supposed to be the most powerful that a Digimon can ever be.

        Plus his main Digimon shares a voice with Klonoa XD

  • Strain42

    Okay, I confess…if this doesn’t get localized, I think I am going to cry. There, I said it.

  • poisui

    I am happy to see that Siliconera is informed. Yes, their proper names are Taichi, Yamato, Koushiro, and Takeru, not their silly westernized names.

    • LunarKnite

      Does it matter which names they use? Neither is more proper than the other. The westernized names are pretty close to the originals. Honestly, they’re more like nicknames than anything “silly”. Tai, Matt, TK?

      • AuraGuyChris

        Oh yes, I actually like the Westernized names over the Japanese ones.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          but in my country, Tai means poop and Kari means curry. It’s so annoying so I stand with the original one…

      • Exkaiser

        Well, they are nicknames! Everyone’s full name was the same (Taichi’s surname got changed for some reason), but they just referred to them by the nicknames.

        Works for me.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          except koushiro (izzy).. and changing surname is same as changing the whole name..

      • Renaldi Saputra

        izzy, yolei, cody, and henry don’t seem resemble to the original one.. Their real names are koushiro, miyako, iori, and li jian liang (chinese name).. Pretty close, huh?? I don’t think so..

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000301072427 Mark Shaver

      Yeah, you’re right. I led cursed childhood by not knowing that Tai was a renaming of..*blech*…TaiCHI! Oh god, my whole life is a lie!!!

    Calling it.. Nico’s dad maybe just mind controlled by a greater threat in this game.

    • Renaldi Saputra

       maybe that black mechanized dinosaur thing would be same as D-Reaper and isn’t a digimon..

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000301072427 Mark Shaver

    Throw Rika in there and a localization and consider me interested.

    • AuraGuyChris

      And Takato to beat the living crap out of him. Most horrible Digimon male lead ever.

      • LunarKnite

        I wouldn’t go that far. Takato was always supposed to be a plain kid with a Digimon fascination. Sure the others may have been more extraordinary in their leadership roles, but Takato always felt more relatable, which was their main goal with him.

        • AuraGuyChris

          But he felt like a fanboy to me, and I hate fanboys. So there.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000301072427 Mark Shaver

        Marcus from Savers is WAY Worse. HE doesn’t even wear goggles! Blasphemy.

        Plus, I love Takato (Rukato4life), so I can’t agree with your statement. I’d be fine with putting him in for other reasons, though.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          way worse?? well, not wearing google doesn’t mean worse.. anw I can learn many positive things from him.. especially the manliness..

          conclusion: every leader have their own personality.. not all leaders are same in general.. they all have positive and negavite sides even though different

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000301072427 Mark Shaver

            The not wearing Goggles thing is a joke. I’ve been watching Savers for the past couple of weeks and, honestly, I feel that, overall, it’s the weakest of the 5 so far. None of the main 3 are likeable (They’re all stupid, Marcus is always yelling, Yoshi is always complaining and being useless, and Thomas is the least unlikeable out of the three, but there’s nothing really to like about him either because he’s at the point where he’s beginning to stagnate (I’m on episode 30, I think)) and Kenan is aggravating as all get out (Me digimon, no wait, me humon, no wait, me hate humon but no have place to go! Me hate humon but hate digimon, but love digimon and love humon, oh wait!) and speaks in a stupid caveman dialect that makes no sense for him to be using.

            The only thing I like about Savers is Kristy and that’s mainly because she’s voiced by Melissa Fahn and is incredibly sassy.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            idk maybe you watch the dub.. maybe a bit or more different than the japanese ones (with eng sub that i watched)…

            Well, you maybe right that Masaru is kind of stubborn guy, always solves something with his fist, never calm down.. even though so, he really loves his family. He even promised to Sayuri (his mother) to bring his father (Suguru) back. He kept struggling hard to find and bring his father (whose body was being possessed by Yggdrasil) back until the most touching things… Suguru (whose the real soul was in Banchouleomon’s body) sacrifice himself to save the world and give Masaru a responsibility to take care the family. I love the words that Suguru said..

            “There will come a time when a man must accomplish something at the risk of his life.”

            And from that, manly tears is inevitable for me..

            Masaru is stupid indeed, but after learning something important, he has grown up and become a real man.. And idk about Touma, Yoshino and Ikuto..

            I think it’s all reasonable for characters to be stupid at first, but be grown up after it..

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000301072427 Mark Shaver

            Wow, thanks for that spoiler, Jerk. I said I was only at episode 30. 

            And I don’t care if he “grew up”, he’s the most annoying protagonist I’ve faced so far and his entire crew is stupid. The writing is also annoying, with the characters constantly pointing out and repeating obvious things for no reason. 

            Basically, Savers sucks and screw you for spoiling it.

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        That’s because Takato’s character was supposed to experience the realistic consequences of having a dangerous monster partner; it’s also why he’s written as 10 years old – so that he can show emotions about it. Give the boy a break. You may not like him for any reason, but his character had a lot of purpose and meaning within the story.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        dude, every main characters have their own unique personality. Don’t assume that every main characters (a.k.a. the leaders) should have the same personality and have a leadership.. you’re totally wrong

        • AuraGuyChris

          Firstly, I didn’t even say anything about the leaders being the same in personality. Don’t make things up.

          Secondly, even though all characters have their own unique personality, it’s still not an excuse to like them.

          People, I have opinions. Respect them.

  • Code

    Awww… I kind of hoped they would match this game’s art style o~o; Can’t help but feel like it’s a little cheapened with them pretty much being copy/paste from the original promo artwork T3T; That being said I still think the game sounds great owo’

    • Renaldi Saputra

       i feel the same thing.. but if they change the art style, then the circumstances will be different, seems no nostalgia anymore..

      But renewing the characters (from the 1999 style into the 2012 style) will be better i guess

  • boundries_san

    It is a good thing to see that old classic digimon anime get some love there.

    GIMMEEH!!!! D:

  • Anime10121

    I shed a tear every time I see news for this game, because I know we will never get it :(

  • Christopher Nunes

    Wait… wireless? o_0
    Do I have to be online or something to fight Tai and Sora? Can’t I do a plain Versus mode with enemy AI at will? Correct me if I’m wrong, I’ve pre-ordered the game and I would LOVE to fight my favorite Digimon heroes!

    By the way, you mean the WarGreymon evolution is locked until Tai is beaten? Or beaten Tai gives you a WarGreymon? I mean, fighting special cameo characters are cool and all but if the content is locked due to wireless connect battle… I’m kinda screwed. ^_^;

    Also I wonder who else will join Tai and Sora? I mean, Marcus, Yoshika, and Thomas from Digimon Data Squad appeared in the Digimon World DS games as special cameo characters to fight… I wonder if ALL lead characters from series 1 -5 will appear in the game? Think how awesome it is to have characters (even if it’s not everyone) from each season to appear in this game and fight them? Best Digimon fan service ever!

    Anyway this news excites me! I know for definitely Dorumon is going to be a Digimon partner to have, they have in past Digimon World games and Dorumon’s baby form is shown to be the MC’s partner in a screenshot or video IIRC.

    Truly, this is going to be the best Digimon World game ever. *sniff*
    Please Namco Bandai, you HAVE to localize this game! >_<

      “After much consideration, we’ve decided to pour our resources into localizing the Power Rangers and Dragon Ball Kinect games instead.”

      • Christopher Nunes

        How can you localize Dragon Ball Kinect games when Japan doesn’t like the 360?

        Seriously… well it’s a good thing I’m pre-ordering this bad boy!

    • http://www.falgram.com/ Falmung

      I’m pretty sure like in most games you can start the versus mode in offline mode. However if the bosses are designed to be beaten as a team it might be harder by yourself. Still lets not assume stuff based on lack of information. I’m sure there is some sort of offline mode. 

  • Solomon_Kano

    This game keeps sounding better by the day. It’s a pity that both this franchise AND the PSP are dead over here, otherwise there might have been some glimmer of hope that we could see this. I guess I’ll just have to hope that there are fans out there of a like mind willing to translate it when it comes out.

    I would buy this game just a beat Tai’s face in. 

    Never liked that guy.  Would love to wreck whatever digimon he throws at me.

    I hope to see Taiki, Nene and Kiriha. I also notice the Agumons in the screen have no red bracers and GeoGreymon is not there. I hope to see Greymon(99), GeoGreymon, and Greymon(Xros Wars).

    • Renaldi Saputra

      sorry dude but there will be no xros digimon in here.. if that so, the leveling settings would be confusing… you know that in xros there’s no levelings (child, adult, perfect, ultimate). And about the agumon u mentioned, this game only use the original agumon, not the raptor-1 version. Even though so, it can evolve into geogreymon besides of greymon..

  • Renaldi Saputra

    ugghh i must calm down myself, just 1 month left

  • Reno Evangelista

    The protag next to Taichi and Sora pretty much just draws attention to how ill fitting the protag’s design is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/thalles.regis Thalles Regis

       Isn’t it the other way around? Tai and Sora are drawn exactly like in the anime, while the rest of the game have it’s own artstyle.

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

    Taichi and Sora design should be redraw by the artist….They looks so out of place.(Or is it the intended effect?)

    (Interestingly, their appearance matches their appearance from the anime despite the supposed time lapse.) 

    Does this mean they r in the same continuity!?

    So Digitowers are the same thing as those pink beams in Tamers? (Lol I though we hv a Tartarus grinding ground). And Blackened Digimon disrupts the normal digimons data? GIGO is the company evil? Wonder wht other cameo are they going to throw us? Will this get out of Japan?
