Digimon Adventure RPG Announced For PSP

By Ishaan . August 17, 2012 . 8:30am

Namco Bandai are following Digimon World Re:Digitize up with another Digimon game for the PSP. The latest issue of V Jump magazine reveals Digimon Adventure, a new title based on the old Digimon anime series.


Taichi Kamiya from the Digimon Adventure series is shown in the scans, along with Agumon and other characters. V Jump say that the game will represent the anime series in full.


A release date for Digimon Adventure hasn’t been announced, but the game is part of Digimon’s 15th anniversary celebration.

    Now they’d better just give these a US release. Actually i wonder if the first seasons release on DVD might help if it sells well.

    • Christopher Nunes

      Is the DVD release the complete Season 1 of Digimon or parts of it? I would definitely get it if it’s the complete series!

      My little brother has been watching the VHS of the first few episodes recently and he likes it!

      • Sorrior

        Yep english dub only ENTIRE first season as well as a first part. Coming out in october. I have it ordered on rightstuf myself.

        • Christopher Nunes

          Nice! ^_^
          I don’t mind if it’s English dub only, I’m glad that the ENTIRE Season 1 of Digimon is included on the DVD!

          By the way, do they plan to release Digimon Season 2, 3, 4, and 5 on DVD? Entire seasons for each one?

          • Sorrior

            I honestly dunno. They’ve only announced season one for now.

          • Christopher Nunes

            Hopefully they’ll announce the others soon after! ^_^

    • Jason Ryer
      • Sorrior

        Yes to top no to bottom. Bottom one screams bootleg or at least import(one of MANY problems and reasons i try and avoid amazon these days). And as i said before i have my copy on order already at rightstuf. Haven’t heard about 02 there let alone at ANN and so yeah the second one kinda screams bootleg.

  • Seishunlihuen

    I’m getting 30 yrs but a gift like this will always be appreciated :)
    One of my favourite anime!

  • They should also put the 02 along with it, 02 is my fave followed by the original adventure

    • Spirit Macardi

      If they do, then they should definitely change the ending. I doubt talking MaloMyotismon to death would make for an exciting final boss.

      •  Final fight and then when you defeat it it appears the ending from the anime, think it would fit xD

        • Jason Ryer

          amazon has a 6 disc set for 80 but it would be interesting if the game went the anime route. it worked for yellow on pokemon.

  • Xapth

    Digimon, Digital Monsters, Digimon are the champions!
    I like Pokemon, but I was always someone who preferred Digimon, so this news has me extremely interested!

    Although, I’m a bit doubtful as to whether we’ll ever see this or Re:Digitize get an English localization since the PSP isn’t doing as well here… 
    Maybe if we see a Vita port of these titles one day…

    I’m still gonna keep my fingers crossed!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      sadly I don’t like the english dub opening..

  • Anime10121

    Want! SO MUCH WANT!!!

    Digimon Adventure was amazing and I always pictured it as an RPG, just sad that like Re:Digitize I wont be able to play it since the PSP is, basically ashes in the wind (in the US) :(

  • Rihawf

    Good thing they are going back to the roots and doing really good games!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    psp nooooooooooooooooooooooooo  why not port both to the 3DS/vita or something ugh if that happens then we might get it state side

    • LynxAmali

      Considering the fanbase is pretty much non-existent at this point….

      Also; Complaining about system of choice. -_-

      Development costs, people.

      And hey! PSN!

      • Spirit Macardi

        I’d argue that the Digimon fanbase isn’t non-existent, just dormant. I mean, there hasn’t been any attempt to bring new content over, so there’s nothing to base the level of interest off of.

        The series was in pretty good shape back when Saban held the rights. It was only when rights shifted to Disney that things started to slip up.

        • ShindoW

           Everything seems to be pointing towards a US reboot.

          Season 1 DVD official release is coming out.

          Digimon Xross Wars is getting a dub (for sub fans its on crunchyroll)

          Maybe we’ll still get this game. If not, I’ll import and use a guide. :)

          • LynxAmali

             I’ve heard that Xros is getting dub since it started airing, the original season that is.

            You wouldn’t happen to have a source, would you?

          • Christopher Nunes

            Where was this news on Digimon Xross Wars being dubbed? I’ve heard rumors, but is it really true?

          •  http://withthewill.net/index.php?topic=17232.0

      • Barrylocke89

        While I can understand not caring for people complaining about the system that a game comes out on, at the same time it’s true that at this point, “coming out on the PSP!” tends to also mean “Nope, no western release for you!”.

        I know the companies have to focus on their main fanbase in Japan, and the PSP is probably a much cheaper system to develop for…but it can still suck sometimes :/

        • sherimae1324

          just accept it oni-chan ^_^

  • d19xx

    Bamco must be happy with Digimon World Re:Digitize sales and I’m kinda sad that we’ll probably never see these games outside Japan. :(

    • MrRobbyM

      I like to believe this has a slightly better chance at getting localized even if the chances are still pretty much zero. If only because this focuses on the first season.

    • Xapth

      This is how I felt when Tales of Xillia 2 was first announced, 

      I was like “Ughh! They’re getting another and we don’t even have the first!”

      But then a month later, the first Xillia was announced for NA & EU.
      So maybe… sometime soon…

  • We want Re:Digitized!!!! Even if its just a PSN only will do!!! I just want english ver!! 

    Adventure as RPG, want too!

  • Strain42

    I would consider it an absolute miracle if we got Re: Digitize, this one just seems impossible for western release…

    …By the way, it would be a TOTALLY awesome miracle.

  • If they can make a game as good as World 3, I would insta-buy it immmediately.

    • MrRobbyM

      World 3 was amazing in every regard except combat. That part didn’t age well AT ALL.

      •  I kinda enjoyed the variety of Digimons you could have in your Team. The Combat was kind of a Hate/Love thing. I for myself liked it. Not the best, but not the worst.

      • The combat definitely needed improvements.

      • Renaldi Saputra

         world 3 only won at card battle system

    • Kitestwinblades

      They should really add Digimon World 3 to PSN. It has REALLY addictive music.

  • ToshiChan

    Well, that’s cool and all but when are we non-Japanese fans getting this

  • ChromeOrihara

    Is this a dream?I’m dreaming,right?This is wonderful news.Now if only Namco would bring it over to the States,it would be officially the best news ever.XD
    Although,technically that WOULD be a dream,I’m seriously hoping to play it in English.Digimon Adventures was my absolute favorite among all the seasons.

    • Why not 02? That was more awesome. >_>

      • LynxAmali


        I don’t have anything to say to that but “Opinions.”

        That final battle was a let down. Should’ve expanded on the Dark Ocean arc, etc.

        • Maybe I am being biased since that was the Digimon series I actually remember. I was so young when watching them.

          • LynxAmali

            Nah. It was fun. Wouldn’t say it was awesome though.

             It was fine up until the World Tour arc and the last one. Still wish they’d expanded on the Dark Ocean arc with Kairi and TK though.

          • Meh I still think it was awesome. However more so than 01 I may have to retract. And I really don’t remember a whole lot about the arcs and such so meh I can’t say that much.

      • ChromeOrihara

         To be honest,I think all the seasons were equally good,just that the first season brings back a lot of childhood memories.That’s why it is my favorite.

        • They were all decent. I didn’t like the… 4th? one. The one where they became the Digimon. Xros Wars seemed pretty good from what I actually watched (I got to the 2nd zone the beach one, I think they were about to leave to the 3rd zone (for reference)).

      • Renaldi Saputra

         since 02 was the sequel of adventure series, it’s awesome enough as the first IMO

  • That’s nice… Im not Japanese though. ¬_¬

  • Mister_Nep

    I choose you Gomamon! Use hyper beam! Wait. What’s that? You don’t know hyper beam? Fine just use a splash attack.

    Kidding aside, I totally want this game.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      he can summon magikarp(s) actually called marching fishes.. so multiple spash.. LOL

  • SirRichard

    I miss the original series so much, haven’t seen it in years, this could be absolutely incredible! The question is how it’s going to play; they have a foundation in Re:Digitize, but would that work with the way things worked in the show, or are we going to charge Devimon on the back of MetalGreymon?

    • ShindoW

       The US is getting the entire season one on DVD in a month or two.. you can preorder on Amazon. Note that its dub only, if you’re picky about that.. :)

      • SirRichard

        Not American, unfortunately, and I don’t have one of those region-free DVD players. Really need to get one of those at some point.

        Also, English dub is basically the only way to go for childhood animes, I find!

        • Yeah…. BTA I hadn watch the english dub but our local TV did hv a dub…. And I hv a cantonese dubbed DVD. No english dub DVD here lol.

  • LazuliteLiamz

    yet another awesome game that most likely will never get localized :(

  • kevinposta

    I am so getting this. It’s surprising how much nostalgia can affect me :’D

  • Tre W

    …Fascinating. Guess that’s what Taichi and Sora’s appearances in Re:D were hinting at.

    Hopefully, if 02 stands to get the same treatment, they’ll be able to give that series the “fix fic” treatment, as well. I don’t think anybody liked how that part of the story ended, much less the hanging plot threads.

  • TheSwordUser

    I thought it was Re: Digitize localization annoucement and for some reason this is the title.

    PS: Vita needs more love.

  • Steven Higgins

    YAY! Another AWESOME Digimon game that we will never see in the US. great.

  • Steven Hunt

    How about another Rumble Arena, Namdai? Preferably better than the second one :/

  • Tales_of_Master

    Can we get RE:Digitize here in the states first -_- And yay for Digimon Adventure, the first season is probably my favorite.

  •  http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b194/Rainmon3/79922d9b.jpg

    Least also that scap below doesn’t show stock arts in the dialogue.

    *Plays Wada Kouji’s Butterfly and head bangs for old times’ sake*

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Nice news! Digimon Adventures was definitly the best! its good that so far in time it still gets love!

    BTW: auch! right in the childhood!

  • hypergattairobo

    The best thing ever!!!!! I really need to have my PSP fixed. XDDD

  • konsama

    This are awesome news, and looking on the scans, it seems they are reusing the exact models of Re:digitize, which are beautifully made, just like the PS1 games re used models. And then add it’s the best Digimon series, damn now i want to watch it again. >_<

  • Heath Bunch

    Sweet digital lords, I’ve been waiting for this game since they started making Digimon video games! I never liked any of the other series as much as this one either.

    Even without a localization and my shakey Japanese knowledge, well…I know the story! I’ve seen it enough times! Hahahaha

    DAY 1..err..0…now ploxx!

  • Why does that guy look like Ryu from Dragon Quarter?

  • Ben Sylvia


  • Christopher Nunes

    It’s awesome they’re doing an RPG version of the Digimon Adventure series… think they’ll do all Digimon anime seasons per game? That would be interesting.

    Though I really want Digimon World Re:Digitize localized a lot… beat the game and loved it. We need more Digimon games like that!

    • Mister_Nep

      You beat Re:Digitize? How long did it take?

      • Renaldi Saputra

        sadly re:digitize has a short plot that didn’t follow the world 1’s..

      • Christopher Nunes

        Took me between 30 -40 hours to beat it, but it was mostly me raising my Digimon to Mega and maxing out their stats and trying to get the Digimon I want.

        The story is roughly around 10 – 20 hours, depending on how fast you clear the story plot and how strong your Digimon is, not to mention which skills your Digimon learned (as even a maxed out Mega Digimon will do low damage with low-level skills).

  • tha_Chiller

     no localization for both…now they’re just being disrespectful

    • PSP is dead on the west. Why would they localize it? Have you seen any new psp releases this month or the past aside from Growlanser IV?

      • tha_Chiller

         Thank God for Atlus & NIS America, yeah the PSP is dead here but its not like there isn’t any Digimon fans over here

      • There a thing called Vita & PSN if they don want to put it on PSP….

  • Mixkon

    Oh my god! Another Digimon game! Re:Digitize is amazing, and this probably will be as well! The scans makes the game look interesting enough! Though I am hoping it will be nothing like Digimon Medley on the Wonderswan. Hated that.

  • Unlimax

     Oh God Oh God OH GOD !!! … My jaw just dropped after hearing this news !

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I thought Digimon World Re:Digitize was only the representation of Digimon 15th anniversary bcos I’m not enjoying re:digitize that much bcos of some lack of epic aspects.. But aparrently, it has just begun.. Damn you Bamco for trolling us.. They were hiding a kind of surprise..

    • Christopher Nunes

      Re:Digitize may not be the best, but it’s definitely one of the better Digimon World games, if not (in my humble opinion) the BEST Digimon World game yet, and improved upon Digimon World 1’s mechanics even though it did lose something in return (and being somewhat too easy to raise Digimon and get Mega Digimon… it should only be easier after recruiting the Digimon that sell better items and the training gym has been upgraded).

      Though I am looking forward to this game!

  • *Cheers* I’m still waiting for RE:Digitize (got others in line first on my import list) but this will be yet another to look forward to!! 

  • Renaldi Saputra

    btw I’m still wondering whether Ryou’s plot will be included on this game or not..

    • Hey, it can as an optional side quest or scenario. Meet him (And probably a younger Ken Ichijouji too.) and have a super boss fight against Milleniumon in the end. (Something along the lines of Wonderswan Digimon Ryou game.)

  • Theofratus ‘Geese’ Lester

    But Digimon Adventure started out in 1999.  ‘Less they’re talkin’ about the digital device-thingy…
