The latest issue of Weekly Jump revealed Digimon Survive, a survival simulation RPG centered on story and choices for PlayStation 4 and Switch. And now that we’ve got the scan translated, I’m all for this new Digimon game.
According to Gematsu:
The protagonist of Digimon Survive is a boy named Takuma Momotsuka, a second-year middle school student who is suddenly transported from camp to a dangerous world where life-threatening monsters wander about. Together with his partner Digimon Agumon, he will boldly face his severe situation and embark on a survival adventure in order to return home.
Here are some details:
- Your Choices Affect Digivolution and the Story – The choices you make during your adventure will change the development of the story, as well as the monsters you can Digivolve during battle. There are various possibilities. While conversation scenes use 2D illustrations, they are depicted with 3D-esque spatial presentation.
- Explore Another World – The keys to the story are hidden at various points on the field. Point and click at locations of interest to investigate.
- Simulation Battles Where Choice Determines Victory – Move your Digimon partners around the field and fight against enemies. During battle, “Energy” is used to perform actions, including Digivolution. Skillfully utilizing your Energy is the key to victory.
That concept alone is already sounding amazing. This might actually be the Digimon game I’ve been waiting for to be honest. Like, I’m fan of the Digimon series but I could never get in to the Cyber sleuth series for some reason. Of course I ain’t slandering that series at all as those game put the Digimon franchise back on the map in my opinion.
And with this game coming to the Nintendo Switch as well, a very popular console at the moment, the expansion and reach is going to be great for the game. Looking at the game itself, I feel like the game is going to be right at home on the platform. the choices you make during your adventure will change the development of the story, as well as the monsters you can Digivolve during battle. One can make the assumption that there’a going to be multiple endings, maybe with good and bad endings.
This game also seems like the type of game that will be great to watch as well. With how games like Detroit: Become Human draw people in to see what choices they’ve made, it’s only going to further game this game sale more in my opinion.
