Here’s the official announcement. At the beginning of March 2023, Bandai Namco announced it was working on a patch that would let people switch between English and Japanese voice acting when playing Digimon World: Next Order. While the PC version and North American Switch one already offered the audio option, the European one lacked it at launch.

Digimon World: Next Order is a more traditional sort of entry in the series. Players work alongside two partner Digimon and care for them, to help them become stronger and evolve into over 200 different characters. It originally appeared on the Vita in Japan, though a PS4 version debuted in 2017 worldwide. The Switch and PC ports appeared in February 2023 everywhere.

Digimon World: Next Order is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC, and Japanese voice acting is available as an audio option in the Switch version worldwide now.
