Yesterday, Bandai Namco released more info on Saki Kimishima, one of the humans who stumble into the alternate world with Digimon. While previously we’ve seen screenshots of her and her partner Floramon, we get to know her backstory, and why she meets Takuma and the others. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
The young girl’s boring camp turns into an unexpected trial!
Saki has always stood out in middle school thanks to her cute looks, and her straight way of speaking without any sugarcoating.
She decided to join the camp to make some memories with her friends, but every last one of them didn’t join. She found out that despite seeming popular, she’s been shunned as a troublesome person.
As if to ignore this hard truth, Saki meets Takuma and the others out of boredom. However, after stepping into the forbidden shrine out of curiosity, she and Takuma and the rest are sent into another world.
Even though she’s startled by the monsters they meet there, she decides to survive this alternate world with her trademark optimisim. However…
Saki Kimishima (CV: Minami Takahashi)
A young girl in the first year of middle school, who’s joined the extracurricular camp. She’s the straightforward type who stays true to herself and says what she wants to say.
For better or worse, she’s prone to acting based on her feelings, and even in another world, she’s still the same. Sometimes, she might cause conflicts due to saying what’s on her mind…
She isn’t really able to reconcile the reality that they might die, and believes that everything will go smoothly.
Floramon (CV: Shino Shimoji)
A monster that has evolved in a reptilian-like manner despite being classified as a plant. Floramon is friends with Saki, and due to its frank personality, the two work well together.
Digimon Survive will come to the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in Japan and the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in other regions. Recently, we talked to Digimon Survive producer Habu Kazumasa about partner Digimon, and how they each reflect the human partners’ ideal self. You can read more about that in our interview here.
