Bandai Namco announced a brand-new Digimon game called Digimon Survive, and it’s a survival strategy RPG that’s 2D and 3D, with adventure game and upbringing elements, and plenty more. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]
The conversational parts are shown with 2D illustrations but with graphics that will make it look like a scene from the anime. The choices you make will also affect story development or even evolutions in the midst of battle.
The exploration parts will have you search around the field to look for areas of interest that are key to the story.
As for the battle parts, it’s in strategy RPG fashion with square grids, and you’ll be moving around your partners and have them fight enemies. Energy is consumed during battle, and knowing how to use it properly will be key to victory.
Not much is known about the story, but the main characters were out camping when they suddenly get thrown into another world. Their lives are in dangers as they find themselves in a merciless world filled by ferocious creatures. This marks the beginning of a new survival adventure.
The protagonist is named Takuya Momotsuka (subject to change), a second-year middle school student (8th grade) who find himself in another world. His partner is Agumon.
Update: You can get a first look from V-Jump scans in our follow-up report.
Digimon Survive releases in 2019 in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
