Like many JRPGs, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth doesn’t have to end once you beat the game. Someone could go on to complete a few post-game challenges or head into a new game plus save while. Which someone chooses is up to them, what you’ll get to do is largely the same either way.
There are still things to do, but when is up to the player. In the post-game, there will be Royal Knights quests waiting for a player, as well as the Master and Legendary Cups in the Nakano Broadway’s Coliseum. The battles experienced in both require the strongest Digimon you could possibly train, and you’ll want to either do these after beating Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth or after beginning a new game plus file. Bandai Namco also has DLC missions for the game, which provide ample reason for coming back.
People who do decide to go through everything again, rather than leaving things be and returning to that completed save for other excursions, will find everything waiting in a new game plus save file. All of your Digimon remain, as well as any non-key items, your money, your total accrued memory. your sleuth rank, scan percentages, and all of your Digifarm progress. If you completed the Royal Knights quests prior to starting over, you keep that information for easy digivolving too.
The only things that don’t carry over again are related to the story. You can’t skip anything. The event segments proceed as normal, you need to get locations, hacking skills, and key words as usual, and you’ll re-discover mirror dungeons. This also means you’ll get memory upgrades for story events again. It’s also a means of going over memory limits. In a new game plus file, it’s possible to go over the 255 memory mark.
Really, it feels like the point of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth’s new game plus is to help people who enjoy collecting every trophy or might have missed something through normal play. Collecting every medal can be difficult in one run, since you might miss some of them as you play. These carry over to a new game, so you’ll still have all the ones you missed. It’s also a great way to get the farm fully upgraded, in case you don’t have all the islands or items.
People who wanted to go through Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth feeling like some sort of god will get that chance with the new game plus. You can completely own the game, if you go through again after mastering everything. There isn’t any new content to pull someone in otherwise, so whether you go back and do it all again or maintain a mastered post-game save is up to you.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is immediately available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
