New Digimon Story Game Will Feature 12 Olympians as 'Central Characters'

Digimon Con 2022 kicked off with a Q&A session about the games, with Chief Producer Kazumasa Habu talking about a new Digimon Story. There wasn’t a full reveal about the title. However, Habu did offer a few details about what people can expect. Namely, it will feature the 12 Olympians, or Olympos XII, as its “central characters.” It will also take place in the Digital World.

As the name suggests the 12 Olympians are Digimon inspired by Greek gods. They consist of Apollomon, Bacchusmon, Ceresmon, Dianamon, Junomon, Jupitermon, Marsmon, Merukimon, Minervamon, Neptunemon, Venusmon, and Volcanusmon. Some of these characters have appeared in Digimon Story entries before. For example, Dianamon and Merukimon both showed up in the two Cyber Sleuth games ahead of this new Digimon Story.

Bandai Namco hasn’t announced any platforms for this title yet. There’s also no official reveal for it. The first time it came up was when Habu mentioned it back in 2018. At that time, he noted the team was using the PS4 as a base for it.

A new Digimon Story game is in development. The last Digimon Story entry was Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory, which appeared on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Vita, and PC.
