Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is an upcoming PlayStation Vita RPG with artwork by Devil Survivor and Durarara!! character designer Suzuhito Yasuda. This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shares a little more on the game.
According to the magazine report, Cyber Sleuth will be developed by Media.Vision, known for their work on the Wild Arms series and Valkyria Chronicles III.
The game is set in the near future of Japan, where internet technology has created a “Cyberspace,” which became something like a second world for mankind; however, this also meant an increase in the number of hackers.
The hackers then created a virus that began to characteristically evolve on its own. This special virus had become known as the “Digital Monster”…
One day, the protagonist acquired a device from someone he met online, that allows him to capture Digimon, called the “Digimon Capture”. With this in hand, he logged into Cyberspace and went to the bottom layer where the Digimon dwelled. However, due to a certain incident, his body had turned into a status of a half-digital being.
Shortly after, data from Cyberspace began to materialize and show up in his town. This is the start of the protagonist’s journey to find the truth behind what caused this mysterious incident to occur.
While details on the game’s battle system are scant, the magazine report indicates that speed will be a big part in combat, as it’ll be using a “Wait Turn-System,” where speed will determine the order attacks. The size of Digimon will also vary from small to extra large.
The magazine also lists the game as multiplayer (up to two players via Ad-hoc,) so we can expect to hear more about that in the near future.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is currently in development for PlayStation Vita.
