Tekken's Lili Crosses Over in Digimon World Re:Digitize
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Namco Bandai Games will introduce a new but familiar character in the latest Digimon game installment Digimon World Re:Digitize. The challenger Lili, originally from Bandai's Tekken fighting series, has taken an interest in battling digital monsters. Within Digimon World Re:Digitize, she will fight players with her trained Numemon and Monzaemon. Her butler also gets in on the action with his trained Angemon.
The game's 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.
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.
The Digimon World Re:Digitize role-playing game will launch for the PlayStation Portable on July 19 as part of Namco Bandai Games' "Digital Monster 15th Anniversary" campaign. The game's retail price will be 5,230 yen (about US$66).
