Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode Has Twice As Much Content On 3DS

By Laura . March 15, 2013 . 2:00pm

As previously reported, Digimon World Re:Digitize is making the hop over to the Nintendo 3DS in the form of Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode. This version is said to contain at least twice as much content as its previous incarnation, with more Digimon making appearances, two new story arcs, and added features. The balance of the game has also been readjusted.


The two story arcs are “Lament of the X-Antibody” and “Scheme of the Demon Lords”. Only information on the first has been released thus far. A report in Famitsu magazine reveals the general story is that the host computer, Yggdrasil, has started disseminating the X-Antibody to counter the foreign AI Vitium (also the main enemies in this game) that is destabilizing the Digital World.


In previous material, the X-Antibody serves to make the Digimon stronger than their previous forms. In Digimon World  Re:Digitize, some X-Antibody Digimon have already appeared like Yuuya’s BlackWarGreymon X, the WarGreymon X you can raise, and DORUmon, who appears at the Coliseum counter. New X-Antibody Digimon uncovered are Omegamon X and Dukemon X.


As for new features, two have been covered thus far. One is the Decode Level, which is a percentage that appears on your Digimon partner’s status screen. The higher the percent is, the greater a stat boost your Digimon gets. It is unclear if this value is reset when your Digimon reincarnates.


Another new feature is the Digitter, which allows you to know the happenings in the Digital World quickly from other Digimon, as well as the current status of your (human) friends and their partners.


Based on votes from buyers of the PSP game, a large number of Digimon were added, Famitsu reports. You can raise more than 160 Digimon, and including bosses, more than 200 unique Digimon appear in the game. The only new Digimon revealed so far is SaberLeomon.


Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode is set to release in 2013 on the Nintendo 3DS. The game is currently 80% complete. According to Famitsu’s figures, the game has sold sold 160,000 copies (download and hard copies) on the PSP to date.

    …Can we in the West have this please?

    • I wanna know where the Hell has the good times gone when Digimon showed up on PlayStation? I want this as an exclusive to PlayStation, not being a fanboy but sorry Nintendo already has a good Train, Capture, Battle RPG.

      Sony needs to reach out to Namco and make this game theirs because Invizimals didn’t do it for me….in fact it pushed me off a cliff.

      • Samurai Don

        Just because Nintendo has a the Pokémon series on the handheld does not mean other company can’t develop monster raising game.

        As for why the series isn’t a Playstation exclusive is because by doing that you end up making less money, hence why exclusive are becoming less common as time goes on.

      • You not having the system it’s being developed for doesn’t make for a good enough reason to make it an exclusive for a system you do have.

    • James Todd

      it might since the new anime season is coming out this year

  • Localization, please. :)

    The Digimon Adventure PSP game would also be nice for nostalgia, but I doubt that’s coming.

  • JMaster3000

    Now is ur chance to get some money in Europe and USA Bandai!
    Release the game! Make it happen!

  • Stuart444

    This won’t come due to Digimon being dead more or less in the west (We didn’t get the last DS Digimon games for a reason). Nintendo would need to literally fund a localization for it to happen and a miracle would need to happen for both Nintendo America and Nintendo Europe to agree to bring them out in both territories.

    And with the 3DS being region locked, I can’t even import it which I consider a kick in the balls :(

    • LynxAmali

      Actually, the reason we didn’t get the last DS game was because we didn’t get Xros Wars until fairly recently, like this year or next. (even then, I can’t remember which station’s airing it.)

      • NIckolodeon is airing Xros Wars.

        • Steven Higgins

          I hear this a lot but no one seems to want to provide a link to the site that says Nickolodeon will be airing it. nick.com Isn’t mentioning it yet so where is this info coming from? I’m asking this on all the forums I belong to so I’m not doubting you or anything. Nvm. found it.

          • lol If you couldn’t find it I could have dug it up for you. lol

  • riceisnice

    Evil people are monochrome.

    • JustThisOne

      That’s too bad, really, as they usually are the snappiest dressers. :'<

    • Nah you must be seeing things. There no way such a cute kid is evil :P Even though he have the lzaya smile

      I’ve seen other villain who dresses in colourful/weird outfit though.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Famitsu doesn’t track digital copies, unless they actually said they did in this article? They track the sales of digital redemption cards for games, but Re: Digitize didn’t get one.

    • Guest

      You are right, both Famitsu numbers and Media Create number track retail sales which most likely include Digital Redemption cards. Downloadable numbers are only available from Sony and Famitsu and MC do not have access to those numbers (outside of PR pieces from Sony or the publisher of the game )

    • Famitsu did provide download numbers in this case. Why else would we report them? We take our sales stuff seriously. :P

  • Rokubato

    terriermon pleaseeeee

  • Melvin Kwan

    I bought it on PSN. It was okay. Not something I’d really play again, but it wasn’t bad.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I hope we get this!

    • Renaldi Saputra


  • Jesse Torres

    I am really hoping for a localization in the U.S.
    Bandai is going to be surprised on how many digimon fans there are in the U.S

    • Claud12

      Me included :)

  • Spirit Macardi

    Hey Namco Bandai, do you want to stop making bad decisions for a little bit and bring this over? Maybe get Jeff Nimoy on the translation team as well to truly capitalize on the nostalgia factor.

    • Fenrir

      Bad decisions? Might I ask what bad decisions are you referring to? Localizing more Tales is certainly a good decision, and I’m sure for PXZ fans, getting the game in English is a godsend.

      What would be a bad decision is localizing a game that likely won’t bring in much cash. I’m a fan of Digimon myself but I’ve accepted that these games are unlikely to be localized. Now granted, they could go the PXZ route and only handle the text. However, that still requires programmers, translators, testers and so on. Those people need to be paid of course and again, I doubt a localized Digimon game would have enough profit to ensure Namco Bandai doesn’t lose money on it.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        hey but re:digitize sold pretty well for a PSP game..
        ooh maybe it’s bcos there aren’t many digi-fans on the west..

        • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

          Oh, and the PSP is basically dead XD

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s weird that Digimon D-Arts figure got localized in the U.S. (dukemon and beelzebumon, idk bout wargreymon & omegamon) but the recent games didn’t

  • konsama

    Time to revive digimon in the occident dammit!!!

  • porkiewpyne

    Here’s to hoping that Gaiomon and/or ChaosGallantmon make the cut :)

    • Renaldi Saputra

      since Gaiomon is one of the digimon who possesses X-Antibody, maybe it will be uncovered also besides of Omega X and Duke X..
      idk about ChaosDukemon, seems it won’t

  • Steven Higgins

    Also, we need an official translation for the Super-Ultimate level. Or is “Ultra” the official one?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      actually in digimon reference book there isn’t “super ultimate” or in japan “chou-kyuukyokutai” although it’s ever been used in v-tamer 01 manga, but that level isn’t official..
      for more info: http://wikimon.net/Super_Ultimate

      • Steven Higgins

        That’s because there are only 5 Digimon that have reached that level. Chronomon was refered to as the “Ultra-Level Digimon” in Digimon World DS and is one of those 5.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          only 5?
          hmm let me remember:
          Demon Super Ultimate
          Arkadimon Super Ultimate
          UlforceVdramon Future Mode
          Chronomon (both destroyer and holy mode)

  • kaizin

    i really hope this comes to the west I bought the psp one and loved it but if we can get this i will buy it on the spot.

  • Beta

    Please localize this! But keep Butterfly and Braveheart instead of the crappy opening and “Hey, Digimon!” which doesn’t feel like a battle theme at all… -_-

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, original theme songs are much much better..
      better give it to NISA if they want for localizing

    • LynxAmali

      -But keep Butterfly and Braveheart instead of the crappy opening and “Hey, Digimon!”

      You….you realize this doesn’t have any vocal themes in it, right?

      • Beta

        Wait, what? I am pretty sure I heard that both of those themes are in the game… 0.0 I guess I misinterpreted what I heard/ read… -_-

        • LynxAmali

          Wrong game. That’s the Adventure game.

          • Beta

            Oh, got confused, my bad… >.<

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wut? it only sold 160k until this day??
    I thought it had been sold for more than 200k (download + hard copy)

  • Do want! Plz localize…..

  • Lester Paredes

    I’d love to download the original PSP game. but, if they bring over the 3DS one, I’ll take it too. Seriously, I miss Digimon. sure, it was often silly, but I liked it.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    new female character has been revealed.. her name is Shinomiya Rina
    her partner is v-mon.. and they’re making a manga called Digimon World Re:Digitize Encode.. the game will be released on 27th June 2013

    • JustThisOne

      She looks really cool!

      But w…why would they make a shirt like that. Isn’t it cold?

      • Renaldi Saputra

        idk, maybe fanservice again??
        well, but for me it doesn’t matter, just like what they did to Black Rock Shooter or any anime based game..
        btw, looks like she (Rina) has a goggle too, the same as the Shujinko’s (Taiga’s)

        • JustThisOne

          Well, it doesn’t really bother me that much either. It just seems like a weird design.

    • I won the imaginary bet XD And wow, you guys who said it was V-mon was right :O

      Unbuttoned jacket….. its Yasuda alright. Since when non MC get the right to wear goggles ^w^;

      Hmm… is the manga another one shot like the Re:Digitized prequel manga or serialized one?

      • Renaldi Saputra

        most likely is one shot manga..
        but hey, this girl seems like a tomboy one by appearance..
        now it’s perfect.. 3 males and 3 females, this is the first time digimon making equality in gender..

      • Gotta hand it indeed to Yasuda, he definitely knows how to design female characters. Imagine the fanarts of her that would be dished out in the future….

    • Pedro Tavares

      Fuck Yeah Veemon got it rigth :D

  • Reki Honoo

    Please let this be localized.. it would be perfect since xros wars anime is getting an english release this year thanks to saban brands

  • Vash bane

    ” You can raise more than 160 Digimon, and including bosses, more than 200 unique Digimon appear in the game. The only new Digimon revealed so far is SaberLeomon”

    saw saberleomon and squeled XD

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I know what u feel XD

  • Claud12

    West Namco you know you want to:)
    and hurry up with Xilia :~)

  • They really need to release this on Usa and europe , even if is a Digital title

  • I do hope Black WarGreymon and the X-Antibody version that Yuuya has would be amongst the playable and obtainable new Digimon in Decode.

    Saw the recent V-Jump scans— I too, feel that the Seven Demon Lords are somewhat starting to get overused…

  • Wonder if they can make an anime from this :P
    Still yet to complete the game on PSP.
    (Played the Gundam AGE L5 game halfway then played Re:Digitize then left it halfway and played G Gen Overworld then left it halfway :P)

  • tha_Chiller

    *paces around the room* localization…

  • Salvador’ Spinoso

    The Main Character looks like the one from Devil Survivor… well, the same designer, but still…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      you’re late realizing it for a year..

  • Man, at times like this, I wish I had a 3DS. Since 3DS games are more likely to get localized than PSP ones at this point. :c

  • TheExile285

    localize this Nintendo

  • Nintendo please be gentle my wallet can’t take it anymore

  • Surprise me! Bandai!
