Over the weekend, Bandai Namco held an event at Anime Expo. We learned that Digimon Survive, the newest game in the series was originally planned for release this year. At Anime Expo, we learned that isn’t the case and instead now launches next year.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Digimon anime, Digimon Survive presents a brand-new adventure set in a mysterious world with characters designed by Uichi Ukumo, and music by the much-acclaimed Tomoki Miyoshi.
Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger.
As they fight their way back home through an animated world of difficult decisions and deadly battles, players’ choices throughout the game will impact the evolution of their monster allies, and the final ending. Battles in the game are fought in 2D, in a more classic strategy RPG style.
That’s all the information we have right now, as the video show at the event isn’t yet available online (but features around 5 minutes of footage).
