Japanese insider ryokutya has revealed via Famitsu that Digimon Survive has received a Japanese release date of July 28, 2022, for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. However, there is currently no word on whether this game will receive a simultaneous global release date. We’ll keep you updated if such a notable development occurs.
Digimon Survive will focus heavily on the characters’ story and their relationship with their Digimon. The team’s approach to this new title will utilize this generation’s hardware as much as possible in a blend of 2D illustration with 3D environments. During battles, Digimon will be able to Digivolve right on the maps. The matches’ battle flow will be as fluid as possible while retaining the strategic mechanics of taking advantage of enemy weaknesses.
Digimon Survive will feature dramatic story sections where players learn more about the characters and the world, much like a visual novel. In addition, however, additional gameplay elements have been added to feature large-scale battles between Digital Monsters. Still, there will be a heavier emphasis on the visual novel segments than the combat, with there being a 70% to 30% division.
