1st Digimon PSP Game's Rival, Heroine Revealed
posted on by Egan Loo
The December issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine revealed the protagonist's rival and the heroine of the upcoming Digimon World: Re:Digitize game on Friday. Bandai Namco Games will ship the "digital monster-raising role-playing game" as the franchise's first PSP game next year.
Nicolai "Nico" Petrov is both a good friend of the nameless protagonist and his rival. He is passionate with a strong sense of justice, and his Digimon is the silent, stoic Mirage Gaogamon. Akiho Rindō is a cheerful and curious girl whose Digimon is the gentle Garudamon.
The main character is a 14-year-old boy whose hobby is riding road bikes. Thanks to a certain incident, he is lost in the Digital World — the world where the data creatures known as Digimon live. Suzuhito Yasuda, the illustrator of Durarara!!, is designing the characters.
