Digimon Adventure Videos Show Story And Battle System

By Laura . December 9, 2012 . 9:30am

Two new gameplay videos for the Digimon Adventure PSP game have been released. The first is titled “Adventure Part,” which shows the PSP version of the story events from the first two episodes of the anime:



It looks like every now and then, the characters will set up camp, where you can talk to other characters and form deeper bonds with them through conversation.


The second is titled “Battle Part,” which shows the party battling a Guardromon in the episode 5 map:



Battles aren’t random. Additionally, it looks like you can either set Digimon to AI or manual command. All attacks consume some amount of SP, although you can also use it to evolve in battle. Increasing bonds between characters power-up Digimon attacks.


Interestingly enough, the background music for the Battle Part trailer is from Digimon World 1.

    Oh. It is glorious.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Sweet jibijesus I can’t wait for this game.

  • Oh, how I would love for this to come over to the west!

  • Reiko_Chan

    This is what America needs.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      unfortunately that notorious bamco seems don’t like to..

      • Just Tim

        I’m old enough to remember that Tamagochi, which pre-merger Bandai owns, was the basis for Digimon; with that said, it would be just proper to release this game or re-release Adventure Season 1 as a complete series with a translated version of this game as a bonus.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          and they should release Re:digitize too then..

  • Jesse Torres

    i want this game to get localized, please bandai!!!!! localize just a small amount of copies!!!!! to the us.

  • ragingmerifes

    Hoping we get to punch Matt in the face, at some point.

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      Sadly, Matt is the ultimate winner regardless of how much you punch him because in Digimon 02…


      • Renaldi Saputra

        scumbag Yamato LOL

      • Just Tim

        But didn’t he and Sora end up divorced?

        • Renaldi Saputra

          nope, Yamato married with Sora and have around 2 children IIRC.. just look a the last episode of DA 02

          • Steven Higgins

            Well it was only the English version that made it seem that Tai liked Sora. The original version gives no such hints. Same thing with Joe and Mimi

  • Keyanf

    Too bad they already showed everyone fully clothed in episode 8’s ending.

  • ign0z

    Both videos use music from Digimon World 1 actually.

  • Lazulis

    Right in the childhood. Digimon <3.

  • Margaret Chan

    This. is. glorious.

    I keep reading these articles hoping Bandai was giving in to a niche market and localizing it for NA. I die a little inside but seeing these are still worth it.

  • This game seems to reek double serving of nostalgia.. Not only its reliving the 01 anime, but the BGM especially that of the battle demo’s is from the first Digimon World game. Definitely a must have for faithful Digimon fans~!

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      That BGM was also reused for Digital Card Battle for the PS1 which was kind of a spiritual sequel to Digimon World.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        oh the battle song right?
        technically Digital Card Arena

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      That BGM was also reused for Digital Card Battle for the PS1 which was kind of a spiritual sequel to Digimon World.

  • Göran Isacson

    Nnnghrlglgwant so much. Did anyone catch what kind of “cut in combo” Sora and Matt did at the end of the battle video? Garurumons attack seemed to increase in damage, but Garudamon didn’t do anything special…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      garudamon?? only birdramon is seen in the vid

      • Göran Isacson

        Aaah right, mixed them up there for a bit. I was thinking “giant battle bird digimon” and Garudamon was the first thing that came to mind.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          Garudamon is more like “giant man-bird digimon” for me bcos it has a body of human

  • Hinataharem

    Digivolving mid battle? Not enough want can be expressed in one post

  • Elvick

    Gah… why did Digimon have to fall off? I really want the two latest games on PSP. This one even more so than Re: Digitize. It looks so good. ):

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    That Digimon Trading Card Game BGM.T_T

    What’s is happening with Trading Card game genre here. I remember during PS1 and GBA era, there are lots of trading card game like Pokemon TCG, Digimon TCG, Monster Rancher TCG and even Super Robot Taisen TCG.
    We need more TCG game.T_T

    • Renaldi Saputra

      why not try digimon crusader?? it’s a card RPG game..

      and don’t forget about Yugi-Oh

  • No BRAVE HEART confirmed yet?

  • Renaldi Saputra

    those songs…

    so this is the reason why they have to spend 70 hours for voice recording

  • FireDragon_1321

    The graphics look absolutely stupid. It bothers me that they didn’t do what they did for the Tales series and have certain scenes in animation (i.e.- the famous scene in Home Away from Home…I blew a fan-gasket when I saw they were using those ugly polygons). And they really could nix the original story. Other than that, this game looks really epic and I will import if I have to! I can’t even speak Japanese, but I will import.

    PS- Lawl at the Taiorians who want to punch Matt in the face. *ducks to dodge flying brick* I don’t support either side in the Love Triangle Debate, but I still find it ridiculously funny how people can still hate on the poor guy years later. (and Matt’s my second favorite; my top favorite is and always will be Tai) *prepares for flame war*

    PPS- Just saw the import price- eighty bucks. My heart and wallet are crying…but I gotta pay up because it’s unlikely that Bamco will localize something like this in America…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s exactly won’t be localized.. because any anime related bandai namco games won’t have a chance to get localized..

      well, dude, Tales Series are usually for PS 3 so the graphic absolutely look different..

      • Just Tim

        Yet ironically, Namco Bandai has no qualms gratuitously spamming Naruto AND Dragonball.

        Even then, this is not a licensed franchise like Naruto AND Dragonball, while Namdai owns Digimon outright, even during the pre-merger days.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          is One Piece the same as Naruto and DB??

          • Just Tim

            Depending on which market its game renditions are released.

    • Göran Isacson

      Hold on a second here, was there actually ship-wars between Sora/Tai and Sora/Matt? Maybe it’s just because it’s been a while since I saw the show, but I never really picked up any vibes between Sora and Matt… did I just miss them, or were people just being dumb and seeing things that weren’t there?

      • Renaldi Saputra

        Taiora (Taichi & Sora) vs Sorato (Sora & Yamato)..
        Many digi-fans usually debate about it even in Japan..

        well, triangle love problems, I have no idea of it.. personally I, too have no problem with it..

      • FireDragon_1321

        “Hold on a second here, was there actually ship-wars between Sora/Tai and Sora/Matt?”

        Yes. There still are. Welcome to the Internet.

        “Maybe it’s just because it’s been a while since I saw the show, but I never really picked up any vibes between Sora and Matt… did I just miss them, or were people just being dumb and seeing things that weren’t there?”

        Yes and no. Matt and Sora were made canon in Season 2, even though there was very little shown on screen to support it (to be fair, a lot of Tai/Sora “evidence” was invented for the dub, so its canonicity is debatable). One of many, many things about 02 people were thrown into a tizzy about.

        I just found it funny and sad that people want to be able to punch Matt in the face in this game just because he “stole” Sora from Tai. As for where I stand…I’m not really on either side.

        (Man, this thing grew fast.)

        • Göran Isacson

          “Welcome to the Internet.”

          I feel both enlightened and soiled. It’s a strange feeling.

          I will also admit that I only saw bits and pieces of the second season- I lost the channel Digimon aired on, to much wailing of teeth. Heck, I can barely even recall there being much romance to begin with, save from Mimi having cute moments of… I dunno, chemistry, I guess, with both Joe and Izzy. Still, thanks for the reminder! Now I know, which is half the battle. The other half will consist of playing DDR until the flashing lights erase this knowledge from my mind and I can go on safe and happy in ignorance.

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      I have no problems with love triangles unless the writers just don’t care. I remember that back in school everybody noted the hints of Sora & Tai in Digimon 01 to the point the Diaboromon movie focused a bit on them. Then in Digimon 02 out of nowhere we learn about Sora & Matt without a single hint (the epilogue sealed the deal if you look close). Well, they say that Digimon 02’s writers had several argument with each others so this could be the result.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        technically the writers of DA and DA 02 are the same one IIRC

  • Raze

    At last….

    After digging my memories…

    I remember the music that play in the first vid…

    Isn’t that the music that play in Digimon World 1 when we got into savanna??

    • Renaldi Saputra

      gear savanna (night)

  • Nitraion

    gameplay seems like digimon world 2 ps1
    only the attacks animation is way buff out and that battle song lol
    Digimon 1 song XD

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      I have bad memories with Digimon World 2. Not only everybody took their time to fight but progression was too slow (you need to fuse two Digimon to level up further, need to buy parts for a machine, etc)

      • Renaldi Saputra

        yep, Digimon World 2 surely need hard work..

  • NTaiyokun

    For once, I am actually excited for a Digimon game. Especially with no BS mechanics like random forms.

    I’m lookin at you PS2 Data Squad.

  • FFmax

    Xseed we need your help!

  • Wow those graphics…..

    SO MUCH WANT…… All my childhood….. Bamco, plz let some1 else handle the digimon game if you r too lazy for it….

  • I wish they will import this to the USA :( Digimon World 1, 2, 3, Card Battle, they’re all amazing! Also the BGM is the Boss battle BGM for Digimon World as well as certain arenas in Digimon Card Battle. The 1st trailer has Gear Savannah’s BGM (from Digimon World) at night time! It brings back memories!

  • Joey Kim

    Does anybody know a good site to import this game from that’s reasonably priced
