Players can choose between a male or female protagonist. The game's protagonist is a senior high school student who has loved Digimon since he/she was young. In fifth grade, he/she was the runner up of a Japanese Digimon game tournament.
Other previously revealed characters include: Kōta Hirose and Himari Ōfuchi, two third-year high school students who are in the same year as the protagonist. Kōta's partner Digimon is Yukimura, a Guilmon, and Himari's partner Digimon is Rikka, a Plotmon (Salamon). Other characters and Digimon include: the amnesiac girl Luce, a mysterious cap-wearing unnamed young man, a boy named Shōma, Taomon, Gaioumon (Samudramon), Jijimon, as well as the new Digimon character, The Executioner.
