Digimon Tamers' Digivice Returns After 15 Years
posted on by Eric Stimson
About 15 years after the culmination of the third Digimon series, Digimon Tamers, that series' Digivice, the D-Power (or D-Ark in Japan), will make a comeback.
The D-Power will be available in two varieties: Takato's and Rika's (Ruki's). They will include new Digimon: Megidramon, Sakuyamon's miko mode, and Kuzuhamon's miko mode.
When "certain conditions are met," Leomon and Cyberdramon will also become available to use.
The Digivices also come with three plastic plug-in cards to modify your Digimon, along with the Red Card and the Blue Card.
The card game that was sold along with the D-Powers will also be revived. There are a total of 65 different cards, including holographic cards, all-new cards, and 3-D cards with images that change depending on the angle that the card is held. They will be packaged in a box that resembles Takato's card box from the anime.
Finally, if the player clears each area, they can access Calumon's hidden mode, which lets them battle 10 different Mega-leval Digimon. What happens after this remains a secret.
The D-Powers cost 9,990 yen ($93.75); the card set costs 6,480 yen ($60.80). They can be reserved at Premium Bandai and are expected to ship in January.

The original Digivice from Digimon Adventure and the D-3 Digivice from Digimon Adventure 02 have also made comebacks, and will be compatible with the D-Power. Digimon Adventure tri. also has its own Digivice.
