Namco Bandai have started to talk about Digimon World Re:Digitize on their Digimon game blog. Along with the first blog entry come the first screenshots of the game. The concept for Re: Digitize, according to the blog, is a “return to the starting point”.
This refers to the original Digimon World, released in 1999. Namco say that the original game is still the one that is most praised by fans, and Re:Digitize will inherit certain systems from that game.
Digimon World Re:Digitize follows a 14-year-old boy who travels between the real and digital worlds. Suzuhito Yasuda, known for his work on Durarara!! and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor’s characters, is creating the characters for this game as well. Namco Bandai say they’ll reveal the game’s developer in their next blog post.
