Brand new gameplay footage of Digimon Survive has appeared via RULICON 2022, a Korean convention. The depicted gameplay primarily comprises the strategical turn-based combat players will be encountering alongside a few of the visual novel dialogue interactions. Admittedly, it’s only a few minutes of footage, but it’s quite welcome after this title’s long absence. The reason for this title’s showcase at this Korean event, as stated by Chief Producer Kazumasa Habu, is because of the brand’s extensively growing popularity in the region.
Digimon Survive will focus heavily on the story of the characters and their relationships 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.
You can view the newly unveiled Digimon Survive gameplay below via a non-monetized video uploaded by a fan:
Digimon Survive is releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on July 29, 2022.
