The best Digimon game in ages is getting a follow-up, because that’s how successful games work. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker’s Memory is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita in Japan later this year, with a Western release in early 2018.
Last year Bandai Namco gave us Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, a Persona-flavored RPG that let players decide how much time they wanted to dedicate to breeding the perfect Digimon. Released this week, Digimon World: Next Order throws players into the deep end within the first 20 minutes.
A countdown site for Digimon’s 20th anniversary has launched. It has forty five days to go, so sit tight.
The Digimon game featuring a breeding system so complex Richard Eisenbeis had to make a spreadsheet is coming to the Americas, but not in its original portable form. Digimon World: Next Order arrives on PlayStation 4 in early 2017.
By the time Digimon Tamers aired, I was growing out of cartoons, or so I thought. Tamers was an impressive feat for an after-school cartoon, a surprisingly mature, more grounded take on the Digimon series, and that’s thanks in a large part to the show’s best character: Rika Nonaka.
Mike Fahey is my role model, and he wrote this review of Digimon Cyber Sleuth, and it’s great, and you should read it, but in case you wanted someone else’s take on an excellent Digimon game, here’s mine: “Finally! A JRPG worth playing!”
I started working at Gawker.com in April of last year, and ever since, I’ve received a constant barrage of always furious, often antisemitic, and rarely coherent emails to my inbox. Reading these is, truthfully, the single best part of my day.
If you’ve seen anime, then you’ve probably come across Yuko Mizutani’s voice work.
Did your favorite Digimon make the cut? Let’s find out.
While a bit time consuming, it was relatively easy for me to get the digimon I wanted in Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. In the new game, Digimon World: Next 0rder, it’s a whole lot more complicated. Like, “get your spreadsheets ready” complicated.
When I was seven years old, I kept a Greymon alive for thirty days. This was a big deal for both myself and the rest of the schoolyard, because back then, successful Digimon-rearing came down to sheer unadulterated blind luck (as opposed to actual motherly care and/or strategy). The sparsely-populated desert wasteland…
It’s a scary moment when you realize just how dangerous the world really is, especially if your day-to-day life involves battling against giant monsters, like the teens in Digimon Tri’s second film.
In appreciation for all the fans that picked up copies of the excellent Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Bandai Namco is releasing seven new trainable Digimon for free on March 10. New additions include Rosemon and six less important ones.
Cyber Sleuth is the most fun I’ve had with Digimon in a long time, though my idea of ‘fun with Digimon’ is quite specific.
A teenager is granted the ability to move freely between physical and digital worlds and befriend colorful monsters made of code, but that’s not important right now. We’ve got to solve the case of the broken air conditioner!
It’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth day, at least for folks able to grab a PS4 or Vita copy. I’ve not gotten the chance yet, so in the meantime might I direct you to Richard Eisenbeis’ excellent impressions of the Japanese version. It’s the same thing, only with squiggles.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth arrives on the PlayStation 4 and Vita this week, and it sounds like the game digital monster fans have been waiting for. Digimon Heroes, released this past week for iOS and Android? Not so much.
Welcome to the story of how the DigiDestined grew up.
Digimon. Digital Monsters. Digimon are the champions.
