To give you an idea how it works, you can combine Appmon powers to power up. The more “Chips” you have, the more damage your Appmon’s attack will do. While choosing an Appli Skill you’ll be able to stack them by picking the same attributes, and the more you have, the more damage you can do. In the example shown, we have a combo of six stacks adding for an additional 65% damage, so this will certainly be a crucial part of the gameplay.

 

Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters will release in Japan sometime in fall 2016. The anime will premiere on TV Tokyo this October.
