Namco Bandai Games began streaming two videos for its Digimon Adventure PSP game on Thursday. The first video shows how players can raise their Digimon's stats in training by leveling up experience in battles. A player can equip his or her Digimon with Digichips collected during adventures via a skill panel.
The second video previews battle encounters with enemies in Digital Dungeons. It also previews the final dungeon where Trainers and Digimon throughout the franchise's history appear.
Toshiko Fujita (Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibōken's Dai, Chihayafuru's Taeko) is once again playing Taichi Yagami (Tai in the English dub), and Chika Sakamoto (Fushigi Yugi's Nuriko, Heartcatch Precure!'s Kaoruko) also returns as Agumon. Other familiar characters include Piyomon/Biyomon (Katori Shigematsu), Sora Takenouchi (Yuko Mizutani), Yamato Ishida/Matt (Yuuto Kazama), Gabumon (Mayumi Yamaguchi), Tentomon (Takahiro Sakurai), Koushiro Izumi/Izzy (Umi Tenjin), Joe Kido (Masami Kikuchi), Gomamon (Junko Takeuchi), Palmon (Kinoko Yamada), Mimi Tachikawa (Ai Maeda), Takeru Takaishi/T.K. (Megumi Han), Patamon (Miwa Matsumoto), Hikari Yagami/Kari Kamiya (Kae Araki), and Tailmon/Gatamon (Yuka Tokumitsu).
The voices of Myotismon (Ryûzaburô Ôtomo), Wizardmon (Akira Ishida), Etemon (Yasunori Masutani), Puppetmon (Etsuko Kozakura), and Piedmon (Chikao Ohtsuka) are all reprising their roles, along with the narrator, Hiroaki Hirata. Hiroyuki Kakudō is returning as the game's voice recording director, and the voice audio for the game is over 70 hours long.
The game is the third phase of the 15th anniversary celebration of the Digimon franchise. Namco Bandai Games plans to release the game on January 17. The first copies will include a product code for a "Digivice Ver. Portable" download, and a serial code for obtaining a special combo card set for the social game Digimon Collectors on the GREE mobile platform.
