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.

Not quite a sequel, Hacker’s Memory is asaid to follow the events of the original Cyber Sleuth game from the perspective of Keisuke Amazawa. Accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he enters the digital world and joins a group of hackers in order to clear his name, while befriending Digimon and tackling the problems facing the strange dimension.

Though it doesn’t look like playing a female protagonist is an option this time around, I am looking forward to more Digimon RPG action with a Persona flair.

Here’s a very quiet bit of footage released in Japan.

Digimon Story: Cyber Slueth - Hacker’s Memory has been announced for European release in early 2018, with Japanese voices and English and German subtitles. A North American release is inevitable.

I was mildly curious about the first game at the time, but didn’t look into it too much. My main interest in RPGs is the story above all else. Does this game have a genuinely good story? I don’t mean passable, or serviceable, or anything like that. Specifically if you took the games script and read it on its own in a book, would it be interesting and good or would you give up after a couple pages?

As a frame of reference, games like Pokemon and Final Fantasy Worlds have absolutely terrible stories to me which are two other popular ‘catch them all’ games that I couldn’t complete due to how horrible I found the stories.
