Update: Digimon Survivethe turn-based tactical visual novel mash-up, released today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
If you buy the game before August 30, you will get goodies: HP support gear, Guilmon DLC and bonus items. Check out the game’s launch trailer below:
Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Digimon Survive, showing off the game’s combat and exploration. The game is a visual novel crossover with an RPG and it will launch later this month on July 29th.
The game features a branching narrative system, to go along with its visual novel styles. But your decisions will also affect how certain Digimon evolve, which is a neat touch. (Imagine if being an absolute bastard for your Bulbasaur changed his evolutionary trajectory!)
Naturally, the game features combat. But it also allows you to recruit enemy Digimon to your team by negotiate with them. I have to applaud Bandai Namco’s efforts here; it has a psychological dimension that Pokémon doesn’t seem to have taken into account.
Digimon Survive has been subject to several delays. Bandai Namco announced this in 2018, and then the company struggled, as many have, with the global pandemic. He then insisted that the game would be released in 2020. Then there were reports that it could slip into 2021. And here we are, in 2022, with a firm release date. Digimon fans rejoice.
