Digimon World: Re:Digitize's New Promo Streamed
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Sony's official Play.Community blog began streaming an 83-second promotional video for the Digimon World: Re:Digitize game on Tuesday. Bandai Namco Games will release the "digital monster-raising role-playing game" as the first Digimon title for the PSP system on July 19.
The evolution of Digimon partners will depend on how players raise the monsters in the game. Players will also be able to compete against friends' Digimon or team up for cooperative battles. Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Yozakura Quartet) is returning to create the game's character designs.
The protagonist 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. 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.
