Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Gets New Screenshots

By Ishaan . March 12, 2014 . 9:51am

Famitsu have shared screenshots of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth in a new report on the game. As previously reported, the game’s protagonist will be able to travel between real world and digital world using a “Connect Jump” ability. In order to make the jump, you’ll make use of terminals set up in the real world.

 

Cyber Sleuth will once again feature artwork by Suzuhito Yasuda, the character designer for Devil Survivor, Durarara!! and Digimon World Re:Digitize.

 

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is in development for PlayStation Vita.

    Now, I’ve never been into Digimon before… But dang, this looks good. I’m not sure what the gameplay entails though. Are there videos yet?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      there is, but only an intro to the game

  • fireguardiancoty

    Beautiful.

    Day 1 import.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    if it gets LE, instant preorder

  • konsama

    This looks as awesome as i was hoping, im so getting this.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    This is being developed by Media.Vision.

    • Duc PC-QB

      You mean Wild Arms developer ?
      Hoooorayy

      • MyBodyIsReady

        And Valkyria Chronicles 3, apparently. I have a feeling this game will be a proper quality Digimon title and a big deal for the Vita when it comes out next year. I hope so anyway, Digimon has so much potential

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Digimon visiting Summer Wars

    • Renaldi Saputra

      summer wars is a reinforced version of Digimon Movie: Bokura no War Game with same director Hosoda Mamoru

      so, well

    • Suzaku

      Summer Wars was practically a shot-for-shot remake of Digimon Adventure: Our Wargame by the same director, Mamoru Hosoda.

      • MaximDualBlade

        Oh yeeeeeea. That explains why I liked that movie so much. Also the grandma was lovely :)

    • http://terracannon876.livejournal.com Laura

      Still… Interesting that they seem to be taking so much from Hosoda’s vision of the internet and technology. Summer Wars was basically a re-imaged / expanded version of what the Digital World internet in Our War Game should’ve been had he had the ideas then, so… Hm. If he was on the staff, we would’ve heard by now, I know that at least ^^;;;

  • MaximDualBlade

    I hope the digital world has a mix of fantasy setting and tecnology setting. Like the anime. I wish for a gameplay video, but some wishes are not meant to be granted this week!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I think before the release date being revealed, we won’t get some gameplay videos, but for the gameplay screenshots, still possible

  • Kaetsu

    Designer of DeSu and Durarara? This game will probably have a good looking city.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      http://digimonstory-cs.bngames.net/
      look at the background image

      • Kaetsu

        Awesome! Reminds me a lot of Ikebukoro in Durarara.

    • DyLaN

      Yasuda only did the character design for them though. You have to thank DRRR! anime crew and Atlus for the backgrounds.

  • artemisthemp

    Change of this been localized is?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      0-5%
      Bamco western hate PS Vita and think it as a being forgotten console..
      well, they still give a chance to one piece unlimited world but only being digital. I don’t know how it will be in the future

      • Skeptika Crediblus

        Aw :(
        But… but I NEED this game.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          well, seems that’s not helped

          *sigh

      • artemisthemp

        One Piee Unlimited World for PS Vita is psychical

        • Renaldi Saputra

          not in USA

          • fireguardiancoty

            And yet it’s getting a digital release on it in NA.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            that’s why Bamco seem don’t give much efforts to PS Vita

          • fireguardiancoty

            I do find it strange how only 2 versions are getting physical releases. One being on PS3 is making me think it’ll be dubbed.

      • MaximDualBlade

        you are death set on this no localization thing. Expect nothing and expect the unexpected man

  • subsamuel01

    Really hope they bring this over to Europe and North America, looks amazing on the Vita.

  • AlteisenX

    Love Digimon but I’m being realistic. We aren’t going to get this from Bandai. Not even a chance. We haven’t had a Digimon game since Dawn and Dusk or World Championship, whichever was most recent. Since then there’s been 4 or 5 new releases? Yeah, I just don’t see it happening sadly, especially with Bandai’s track record with Vita.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but there’s still a hope for Re:Digitize Decode for 3DS

      • AlteisenX

        I just don’t see it happening. I’m more surprised we get junk like Beyblade games still making it here.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          you just don’t see..
          localization isn’t that fast
          not seeing it happened doesn’t always mean it will never happen, we’re still struggling through it until now

          • AlteisenX

            Final Fantasy Type-0.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            it’s a PSP game, PSP is already dead

            Re:Digitize Decode is a 3DS game
            3DS does very well in the west until now

          • AlteisenX

            PSP is indeed over now, but back when FF:Type-0 was announced and released it was just at the end of the life cycle, it still would’ve done well. It would definitely have done more than Digimon in the West. You’re just grasping at straws. Next you’re going to tell me there’s a petition… *sigh* I’m done.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            you’re wrong, the next I wanna tell you is Bamco had replied my e-mail that they fully acknowledge the re:digitize decode localization campaign, and will keep an eye on it

          • AlteisenX

            Most companies will do this thing =/. If they told you they weren’t going to bring it over, they would be basically screwing themselves out of a possible future project. If they said they were bringing it over, they would have just committed to something.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            they said that bcos we haven’t reached the number they want..
            if they won’t bring it over, they just can say like Natsume who didn’t bring Medarot overseas

          • AlteisenX

            That’s true for any company. If sales were outstanding of course they would bring it… that’s common sense. However Medabots hasn’t been a Western thing for many years, bringing a game over now probably wouldn’t do well.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            bcos there aren’t any medarot anime now
            for digimon? there’s digimon fusion, they released toys even iOS game. many fans had returned into it and it did quite well. they had filled digimon world trademark and had completed registration on October 2013, means it’s ready now, just wait for Bamco to launch it
            http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=85729696&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch

          • Nanaki

            Honestly, I feel our hope for any type of localization will come from how well the anime is doing currently.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            amen bro

          • AlteisenX

            You’re definitely right. It would have the biggest impact. Its how we got those awful Beyblade games on DS and 3DS most likely.

    • MyBodyIsReady

      The new one piece game was announced for Vita and the Vita version of Dragon Ball Z did really well last month. Theres a chance, if Demon Gaze, Akibas trip 2 and Monster monpiece can find an audience with western vita owners then surely Digimon stands a chance lol

      • Renaldi Saputra

        it has nothing to do with 3rd parties that localize niche games

        big developer won’t think the same, except Atlus

        • MyBodyIsReady

          Says who? Like i just said, new one piece game has a vita version.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            you just said akiba’s trip, demon gaze, etc

            for one piece game, well, just like dragon ball one, they will only release it digital only in US, means they don’t give much efforts to PS Vita somehow

      • AlteisenX

        Atlus, NISA, XSEED bring games for specific audiences and know their sales. Big companies like Bandai akin to Square-Enix don’t care about how well a smaller title does.

        • MyBodyIsReady

          My point is even the most niche games can make a profit. A digimon game actually has a known name to it and with vitas attach rate its not out of the question

          • Renaldi Saputra

            even if there’s profits, they big companies want big profits from it

          • AlteisenX

            Oh I know they can, but look at Tomb Raider. It did fine but it still didn’t “exceed expectations” until they brought it to PS4/Xbox One. Its how the big name companies play. They play big or go home style.

          • MyBodyIsReady

            That’s true, can’t argue with that. But surely the recently announced One piece game isn’t gonna sell much at all on Vita but they still saw enough money to be made to bring THAT over. Just trying to be optimistic is all

          • AlteisenX

            I know man, I wish I could be optimistic with Bandai. They’re one of those companies who have the potential to make great things happen for NA and EU, they just never take the risks like Atlus, XSEED, or NIS do. Them bringing over the Vita and Wii-U as digital only while two others get retail is the business decision that bothers me. Not the fact that its digital but because they split it… It just showed they have little faith in Wii-U or Vita currently.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            registering a digimon world trademark and not using it is also just taking a big risk
            hopefully Bamco know really well how to use registered trademark

    • Abysswalker90

      Learning Japanese + Investing in region free consoles = Profit.

      • AlteisenX

        Not everyone wants to learn another language or has the patience. It also costs a lot of money to import.

        • Abysswalker90

          It literally costs 10-20 US dollars more, at max, to import.
          If they don’t have the patience to invest in something that is highly beneficial to their hobby, maybe they shouldn’t complain. It is honestly not as hard or out there as it sounds.
          I started playing games in Japanese when I was 15, if you never start doing so, and always complain, you won’t get anywhere.

          • AlteisenX

            Maybe for you it might cost 10-20 more, but I live in Canada where local game prices have increased by $5 already. (Yoshi’s Island is $44.99 here, so is PL6, LR:FF was $64.99) Add in customs, yeah… I can’t afford that. I have similar experience in learning a different language, I’m a computer programmer, not the same thing but definitely similar.

            Starting now, it would cost money for proper teaching of Japanese or a lot of reading. It would require patience which I lack, free time which I lack because I would rather spend it playing localized games or doing other things like programming, etc. It really isn’t as easy as people seem to think it is. It’s all about cost, efficiency, effort, and time.

          • Abysswalker90

            Where I live, games cost somewhere between 40 to 100 USD. So, technically I import almost all of my games, 90% of them come from online stores, and I pay about half of what I would from a local store.

            Look, you just have to start somewhere. You don’t have to put so much time and effort into it, it may take a few months, or a couple of years, but eventually you’ll be able to tell your way around a game that’s in Japanese.
            Knowing Katakana alone is enough to play a Digimon game in Japanese without much trouble.

          • Hound

            The “dive in head first” approach works surprisingly well, to be honest. Like the other person said, learn Katakana (and hiragana) first.

            From there, move onto a game where text isn’t very important so that you get used to a simple menu. If you want to play a game that’s free and features a lot of katakana, it’s rather easy to play Phantasy Star Online 2 with very little knowledge of Japanese.

            I used to use this a lot for Kanji:
            http://jisho.org/kanji/radicals/

          • Hinataharem

            Lets say you get this from Ami Ami, where you are paying in yen anyway. Would it really be that different?

          • http://geekouts.blogspot.com/ miruki

            Wait, what? Games are usually much more pricey in Japan… unless you wait for price drops importing is pretty expensive, even compared to our European standard prices for games, which are already higher than US price tags. A game that cost $60 in the US usually costs $80 right after release in Japan, add around $15 of shipping and another $15 for custom taxes and you’re far over $100. That’s more than $40 more than a regular, localised game….

            Unless you have friends in Japan, importing from there is definitely not cheap.

            PS: Properly learning Japanese takes around 10 years, you should spend at least 1 year in Japan and you have to learn your Kanji every day or else you won’t stand much of a chance – that’s what my friends who have been studying the language at university keep telling me since years, I can read Hiragana/Katakana and a few Kanji, I understand enough of the voiced dialogue to navigate myself through a game but boy, to be able to play a game and fully understand it you need to invest at least 3 years of intensive learning – I don’t even have enough time to even play any games most of the week (work, being a mum, having somewhat of a social life and all that shit takes time) and you tell me it’s a matter of patience? XD Dude, seriously.

      • Hound

        Lies. Your money runs dry and your free time is consumed entirely.

        I guess the same could be said about investing in MMOs or starting a collection of something..

  • DyLaN

    Character art for the MC.

    The visual are gorgeous. But I would like to see R;D Decode come over first.

    • Nanaki

      Dat metabolism. They get skinnier and skinner.

      • Abysswalker90

        Makes me feel buff.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Its a dude? XD

      • Renaldi Saputra

        what did you expect? a transgender?
        actually we’re getting a female MC soon

    • Ricardo C

      I guess Taiga (re:Digitized protag) dyed his hair red lol

      • Captain Levi

        Nah, it’s just Hibiki from Devil Survivor 2.

  • Alexandra Cordes

    Gosh, Vita games are just so gorgeous. *huggles Vita*
    If they let me have a Lopmon in this game… I am importing it.

    • Cheesy04

      I too want my Lopmon :D

  • notpathetic

    That Digital World…Too beautiful…. The athmosphere of the game is urban and edgy, it’s cool. (Sci-fi and modern setting lover in me is happy, as well as fantasy hater) So sad nobody would localize it… At this rate, guys, it beats Kalos region in terms of beauty.

  • D. Collins

    This looks fun!

  • Souffrir

    Why is “author of Yozakura Quartet” never brought up in references to Suzuhito Yasuda’s notable works? I know it’s not a manga that gets much attention, but it should still be mentioned. It’s awesome.

  • AlphaSixNine

    Looking good. I miss my Digimons
    If only you weren’t owned by BamCo. D:
    I just don’t get why BamCo haven’t given this series a chance.

    • Abysswalker90

      Are you kidding? Bandai have been going out of their way to keep this franchise alive.

      And it’s owned by Bamco, because it was created by Bandai.

      • AlphaSixNine

        Sure…
        In Japan.

        Was referring to the west and the English speaking side of the world but I guess that wasn’t obvious huh?

        • Abysswalker90

          Oh. I’m not a native English speaker, and I don’t care about Digimon in the west one bit.

  • CozyAndWarm

    when will Re:Digitize Decode get localized already

    • Renaldi Saputra

      we even haven’t reached 25-30k petition numbers
      I suggest to wait a little more

  • Unlimax

    I expect this is the first Digimon PS Handheld game specifically will gets localized to NA and EU , just mark my words next year
    It really shows the true power of the VITA ~

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but Bamco now hates PS Vita, they don’t give much efforts to it

      • Unlimax

        Not if Sony Self-publish the game and force Bamco to do it in order to expand their VITA library on the foreign side :]
        I’m expecting both Digimon and PSO2 will see the light in 2015 on other regions .

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I don’t know
          but if SCE is even pushing Bamco, I doubt they’ll hear and do it
          Bamco western isn’t something that’s easy to touch

  • Ricardo C

    Day 1 import for me! I’ll support the English version as well if it ever gets localized. Im getting a VITA just for this game on its own (with Danganronpa on the side).

  • Hinataharem

    Digimon garlic champions

  • Lemski07

    another one that would only stay on its homeland.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      well, Bamco western hate PS Vita, unfortunately
      so yeah, importing is a best way

      • Mr_SP

        Bamco hates Vita in the West -> Ports One Piece UW Red to Vita in the West.
        o_0?

        • Renaldi Saputra

          but the fact that they only give digital release in US means they don’t give much efforts to PS Vita

          • Arcana Drill

            maybe isnt a case of effort, but cause it simply doesnt generate profit?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            bcos it doesn’t generate profits so that they don’t give much efforts to it

          • Mr_SP

            I don’t believe that’s a matter of effort. That they’re getting it translated and released in the west is the vast majority of the required effort. Digital and physical release comes down to console and audience distribution. It’s a legitimate distribution method.

  • Kazekage Gaara

    Fun Fact:Suzuhito Yasuda does the designs for the characters in this which is why they look like Devil Survivor characters :P

    • Renaldi Saputra

      *you don’t say

  • Jonas Bern

    I just wished for Re:digitize in english. It would be awesome. but no, Bandai sucks the big one when it ones to not translating awesome games…. next one on the list imo is Sega.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      don’t lose hope now
      there’s still a hope for Re:Digitize Decode for 3DS

    • fireguardiancoty

      So I guess all those Tales games, One Piece games, Project X Zone, Dragon Ball, Naruto, and Saint Seiya games don’t matter. Yeah, they definitely dont bring anything over ever.

  • http://www.midnightgaming.blogspot.com MidnightScott

    That shit looks awesome. I hope Bandai Namco brings over Re: Digitize Decode for 3DS, but also hope they are planning on bringing this game over too! They have been localizing almost everything lately… :D

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah almost everything except Vita games and some other niche series

  • http://www.midnightgaming.blogspot.com MidnightScott

    The company probably wants 50-60k signatures before they will consider it.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      25-30k to be exact

  • soulz

    This may come out here in NA (or the previous digimon on 3ds) because the anime is now airing again. Keep in mind that One Piece is now airing and were getting those games now.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      series like one piece dragon ball and naruto had done a contract with Bamco to always bring their games overseas, so no need to do licensing again..
      IIRC

  • Vash bane

    lol so many localizing request here XD we don’t even know how this thing even plays or what the story is about ( well I don’t)

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I’m not saying no chance at all, just being very low chance about 0-5% bcos it’s only PS Vita exclusive
