Digimon World: Re:Digitize Promo with Anime Footage Posted
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for Shueisha's V Jump magazine began streaming a new promotional video for the Digimon World: Re:Digitize game on Wednesday. The four-minute video includes anime footage and introduces the PlayStation Portable game's scenario, characters, and basic gameplay.
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.
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 game's retail price will be 5,230 yen (about US$66).
