Bandai Namco have announced a new Digimon game in the latest issue of V-Jump, titled Digimon World: Next Order for PlayStation Vita. Here are some of the first details on the game. [Thanks, Shonen Gamez.]
Takuto: A senior at high school who is at the end of his club activities. A love of Digimon from a young age, as a 5th grader he became the runner-up of a Japanese Digimon game competition.
Agumon: A low level Digimon. His special attack is known as “Heavy Flame” (a flame attack shot from his mouth.)
Gabumon: A low level Digimon that grows out his fur and becomes Garurumon.
The scan also has comments about how the “world will evolve” along with “travel the world, alongside your loveable Digimon!” so that might be a little clue as far as what kind of game it will be.
Additionally, it lists Taiki as the character designer, with the following description: the main illustrator for a lot of characters from Lord of Vermillion III has designed some characters for this latest Digimon adventure.
Along with a comment from the designer: “When I was in elementary school, I bought my first Digimon handheld, and it was the first time I fell in love with Digimon. As I was with my very own Digimon, I felt half of the pressure of my very own life.
Digimon World: Next Order will release in Japan in 2016 for PlayStation Vita.
