PS Vita game with character designs by Suzuhito Yasuda slated for 2015

Japanese news website 4gamer revealed two new designs on Friday for the Digimonstory Cybersleuth PlayStation Vita game, including a creature designed by Air Gear and Tenjo Tenge manga artist Oh! great.

The monster (pictured above), is called "Eater." Eater is a bug that suddenly appears in cyberspace, exhausting the data of any human or Digimon that touches it. The new character (pictured below) is Arata Sanada, a mysterious boy dressed in white that the protagonist meets in a dungeon.

The two designs were first introduced in this year's 30th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump on June 23.

The game will involve an active turn-based battle system featuring combo attacks using multiple Digimon along with unique specialty attacks.

The game's story will follow either a female protagonist or a male one, depending on the player's choice. When strange phenomena begin occurring, the protagonist becomes a "Cybersleuth," and searches for the truth behind the mysteries along with his or her Digimon and other human allies: Arata Sanada and Nokia Shiromine. The "rule-of-virtue training RPG game" will take place over the course of four years and evolve.

As with the Digimon World Re:Digitize PSP game and its 3DS port Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode, artist and manga creator Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!!, Yozakura Quartet, Kamisama Kazoku) will once again provide the character designs for the game.

Bandai Namco Games is developing the game, and the company plans to release it in 2015.
