Attention Digimon Masters: Your Massively Multiplayer Online Game is Ready

The real world and the Digital World collide once more (in English!) as Joymax officially launches Digimon Masters, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game in which 38-year-old game journalists can live out their secret Digimon fantasies.

Well now, that was a bit more specific than I planned.

What I meant to say is anyone capable of signing up for a free Joymax account can now download and play Digimon Masters, crafting a character from one of four heroes from season five of the cartoon series, picking a partner Digimon (Gaomon!), and then watching the bonds of strengthening friendship take on physical form through Digimon evolution. It's the English language port of a two-year-old Korean game, but it's new to us, and it's free-to-play, with plenty of stuff to buy for those folks that would rather drop some cash.

As the adult owner of a Digimon pillowcase and the theatrical movie on DVD I might be a little excited, but I wouldn't tell you that.
