By Ishaan . April 17, 2013 . 10:30pm

Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode was shown off during a Japanese Nintendo Direct earlier today, and Namco Bandai followed the presentation up with a brand new trailer for the game with new character, Rina Shinomiya, who is sucked into the Digital World. You can watch it below:



As previously reported, Decode has twice as much content on 3DS as its original release on PSP. Included are two new story scenarios and more than 160 Digimon to raise.


Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode will be released on June 27th in Japan.

    God I want this come to come out in the West. :(

  • Definitely a must localization.

    Man, Rina can indeed be “distracting” with her looks. @[email protected];;

    • ShadowDivz

      I find it funny digimon is made with kids in mind.

      • Prolly its target audience also expands to older pre-teens.

        • Definitely, considering the types of themes and/or Digimon that appear in it, and I’m not even looking at Season 6 here. (I’m looking at you, 1 and 3…)

      • G.

        I think you’re confusing that with the Western marketing of the Digimon franchise.

        • Suzaku

          It was pretty explicitly intended for a pre-teen audience in Japan, too. If you look at any of their old product sales sheets, the demographic they aimed primarily at was adolescents, with the anime and manga skewing a bit older.

          Of course, I think these newer games are also aimed at older fans of the franchise. Especially the Adventure game they did.

    • RIna *-*

  • Andrew Norris

    Everyone should tweet to @NintendoAmerica asking them to help get the game localized.

    • randominternetperson

      And then it fails to meet its sales expectations.

      • thelmas

        i don’t care if the brand even fail if i can get just this game in my hands

      • Renaldi Saputra

        nah this is what I afraid of
        re:digitize was sold very well about 85k sales in first week and about 30k in its second week..
        however I found that around 15% of ppl who bought it got disappointed with re:digitize and this is just a remake with twice contents.. that’s why on amazon it only got 3.6 out of 5 stars of 108 viewers..
        3ds might sell well but psp owner is still bigger
        I assume it only will be sold not higher than 50k in first week

  • Reki Honoo

    Please namco if you still care for your north american fans, please localize this.

  • XypherCode

    Please come stateside! Suzuhito Yasuda’s characters fits perfectly for this game. xD

  • Chiupon

    so happy that Rina is playable.

  • surakian

    Please Namco release this game ;A: We missed out on the PSP game so this should be our chance.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    Magnamon X, is that you?

  • Warboss Aohd

    dat artistic integrity.

  • TaintedSeraph

    I want this game so badly! UGH! If only there was a chance to localize it!

  • Ugh, I really need to invest in a 3DS. Everything on it right now is just everything I want.

    • ShadowDivz

      Probably not leaving japan.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        if it sells well around 50k++ in first week, probably the chance of localization is 50%

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. So she’s a female protagonist then? That’s cool- wonder if she will meet the others or if her story will be completely solo-run and separate from the main five team.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it seems we can only play with her after story

  • Asura

    Who the **** designed her outfit and how the **** did he not get fired?

    • It begins.jpg

    • komiko12

      His name is Suzihito Yasuda and he did not get fired because he is not an employee of the company in the first place. If you are wondering if why the outfit is there, it should be obvious – the team found it acceptable.

    • raitouniverse

      It really should join the list of impractical anime girl clothes. But heck, it’s already a pretty long list. Personally I hope this game comes out, Namco Bandai might be getting courageous if project X zone does well.

  • Can’t unheard Asuna voice coming out of Rina @[email protected] So she the playable character for the new arc/chapter?

    Wht the story for the X-antibody arc again?

    Hope this cross over the sea too. I think its time for a revival of Digimon.

  • Aisha Lee

    The artwork in this game looks very smiliar to devil surivior.

    • XiaomuArisu

      Its the same artist

    • Renaldi Saputra

      *you don’t say

  • http://25.media.tumblr.com/4e0e9b25911276313a17f361bc010bba/tumblr_mlg79pzqsm1rhgf3lo1_500.jpg

    Latest from V-Jump, a new Digimon— Specifically Mega/Ultimate for Tyrannomon, Rasuto Tyrannomon. Not sure if this’ll debut in this game.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      seems a new digimon
      wow, it’s entirely cyborg

      and hey… they show the dorumon evolution line
      so we’re finally able to play with dorumon

      • Yup. Likely a cyborg type. And covered in rust.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          oh about the name.. in romanization it’s LastTyrannomon

          • A friend of mine shared to me that it can also go for Rust Tyrannomon, as “Rasuto” can be a play to the english term “Last.”

          • Renaldi Saputra

            well, yeah.. possibly
            just bcos katakana is usually ambiguous

  • Spirit Macardi

    Definitely needs to come out here. Saban would have to be crazy to not ask for it, since unlike the Power Rangers games this doesn’t require that a new title be built from the ground up for the west.

    Bonus points if they were to get Jeff Nimoy to write for the translation.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Call me a perv but I like Rina ShinomiyaXD

  • Tsunamori Nanashi

    Yasuda = Tits everywhere

  • Raltrios

    Seems like a good time to get back into Digimon. I was faithful up until shortly into Savers, where I had to drop it due to time constraints.

  • Sergio Briceño

    I kind of want the next Digimon World game to be like Ni no Kuni. I mean, the gameplay is similar and the main difference is probably that you only control one character at a time in DW. It’d be cool if you could control a party of 3-6 like how it is with tamers/chosen children in the anime.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      u mean like the Digimon Adventure RPG?

      • Sergio Briceño

        Yes about the tamer part, no about the gameplay part.

        I mean DA is turn based while DW has always been a mix between both turn based and real time. There are few games that handle real time rpg battles with a party of more than 2 characters well, Ni no Kuni is one of them and since DW has a very little moves per Digimon, unlike DA, I think something like NNK’s battle system would be a good fit.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I see
          that would be interesting

  • Taylor Davis

    Please! Please! PLEASE! Let this come to the West (and don’t forgot our friends, Europe.) I know I could buy the psp version, but I want this version. I would love Namco Bandai, Nintendo, who ever, Forever! Plus I’m a huge Digimon fan, please come over to the west.

  • Yup, that’s our Yasuda lol. Seriously though I think Rina looks great, and really love his art style.

  • Brimfyre

    Has Digimon always been this sexy?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      since angewomon and rosemon, yea..

      • Plus there’s Mervamon and Lilithmon from Xros Wars.

    • They started emphasizing it somewhere along season 4, I t-…season 3, I think. Before it was just 1 or 2 per season, but after that…

  • ShadowDivz

    *looks at Rina’costume
    A world of filled with monsters….and she’s exposing her boobs. I’ve seen enough hentai to know how that ends.
    Seriously though, she looks nice and she uses Veemon! My favorite digimon ever!!!

    • I see more “unsafe” image results from Veemon than, say, Renamon. And with this “Rina” character owning one, I’d say that number will skyrocket even more!

      • ShadowDivz

        To infinity…and beyond.

  • Steven Higgins

    Does Namco Bandai have facebook/twitter? “cause if they do we should totally blow it up with requests to localize this. Maybe if they knew Digimon still has a loyal fan base with disposable income here in the states, they’d consider it.
    We should do it on Aug. 1st (Odaiba Day, the day Digimon Adventure began.) to show that at least some of their older fans remember it and want more.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      ahh obdaiba memorial day..
      when the summer camp started and 7 children fell into an unknown world

      • On that very day, the journey has began. Not only for those Chosen Children, but for us Digimon fans.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          and thus, every 1 August we digimon fans celebrate Odaiba Memorial Day..
          Hajimari wa ano natsu no hi kara

  • Please, bring this to America T___T!

  • Dietrich

    So, this is Underling when she grows up? I am…absolutely ok with that
