A financial report for Toei Animation has revealed the delay of Digimon Survive, which has been hit with several postponements since being announced. Digimon Survive is now listed under the “Fiscal Year 2022 Q3 and Beyond,” moving the game from a 2021 window to sometime in 2022.
I’ve been excited for more Digimon since the reveal of Survive. Bandai Namco’s released some great RPGs based on the property and what’s not exciting about a strategy RPG with Digital Monsters? The opening movie is pretty great but it’s about all we’ve seen so far, I’d like to see some new gameplay especially considering Digimon Survive was announced back in 2019.
Following both Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth and Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory, Digimon Survive is said to be a darker take on the series, with more mature themes present. On a camping trip, a group of teenagers led by Takuma Momozuka find themselves transported to a strange world of monsters and danger. It’s up to the group to survive and find a way back to their world.
