Shortly after announcing the newest title in the Digimon video game franchise, Digimon Survive, Bandai Namco announced that the title will be coming to North America and Europe on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam.
Digimon Survive will feature dramatic story sections where players will be able to learn more about the characters and the world, much like a visual novel. However, additional gameplay elements have been added to feature large scale battles between Digital Monsters. These battles take place on a grid field resembling strategic gameplay features such as Final Fantasy Tactics and XCOM.
The trailer gives a brief overview of what players can expect from the upcoming release. Evidently, characters in the game found themselves traveling to a strange new where where they met the Digimon. This world is in trouble and the players will make choices to determine the right path to take and hopefully survive.
You can check out the announcement trailer and some screenshots below:
Author’s take: Digimon has always had a place in my heart. I enjoyed the Digimon Story games for many many hours and hopefully this new direction will breath new life into the franchise and expand it to a new crowd of gamers.
