Digimon Survive had only recently been announced for release in Japan and luckily we haven’t had to wait too long for a western confirmation. The game will be released on the Switch (and the PS4 and Xbox One) in North America and Europe in 2019. There’s a new English language trailer to celebrate.
Namco Bandai are calling it a “survival strategy RPG” and it’s in both 2D and 3D.
Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Digimon Anime, Digimon Survive presents a brand-new adventure set in a mysterious world with characters designed by Uichi Ukumo, and music by the much-acclaimed Tomoki Miyoshi.
Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger.
As they fight their way back home through an animated world of difficult decisions and deadly battles, players’ choices throughout the game will impact the evolution of their monster allies, and the final ending. Battles in the game are fought in 2D, in a more classic SRPG style.
Further information about the game will be revealed soon.
