It seems the people want a new Digimon. On, an Italian fan of the monster-collecting-and-fighting game series started a petition, asking Namco-Bandai to localize the latest entry, Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode, overseas.

Calling itself Operation Decode, the petition has already amassed almost 4,500 signatures at the time of writing. There's a Facebook page, and the campaign also has a presence on Twitter, under the hashtag #OperationDecode.

The game in question is actually a remake of a 2012 PSP game, Digimon World Re:Digitize, which was never localized in the West due to the console's poor sales. Decode, an enhanced remake for the 3DS, has "new monsters, new evolutions, new characters, overhauled gameplay features and a brand new scenario with an exclusive female main character," which makes it an ideal candidate for localization, argues Francesco Haseo-san, the petition's creator.


The campaign hopes to attract enough people for 5,000, and later on, 10,000 signatures in total. If you want to be one of those people, you can check out the petition's page over here.

Seeing the Digimon getting fed and needing to poop and stuff brings back horrible memories of the godawful first PS1 Digimon World. (Shudder)

That said, if this was well reviewed I'd totally give it a shot because Digimon are the champions.
