The February 2015 issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is revealing on Saturday that Bandai Namco Games' Digimonstory Cybersleuth PlayStation Vita game will be released in Japan on March 12 in Japan.

In addition, the magazine lists the voice cast for the game:

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (The IDOLM@STER, Sword Art Online) and Rumi Ookubo (Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, Galilei Donna) as the male and female protagonists, respectively

Megumi Han (Hunter × Hunter, Digimon Xros Wars: Toki o Kakeru Shōnen Hunter-tachi) as Nokia Shiromine

Daisuke Kishio (Mermaid Melody: Pichi Pichi Pitch, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal) as Arata Sanada

Maaya Sakamoto (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Persona 3 the Movie #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream) as Kyōko Kuremi

Kanae Itō (Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future, Wolf Girl & Black Prince) as Yūko Kamishiro

Ayumu Murase (Chaika - The Coffin Princess AVENGING BATTLE, Haikyu!!) as the mysterious boy

The game's story will follow either a female or male protagonist, 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 their other human allies, Arata Sanada and Nokia Shiromine.

Media Vision is developing the game and Masafumi Takada (Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc) is composing the music. 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. Manga artist Oh! great (Air Gear, Tenjho Tenge) will also design a monster for the game.

The game will involve an active turn-based battle system featuring combo attacks using multiple Digimon along with unique specialty attacks. The main character will have the “Connect Jump” ability, a power he/she obtained during an accident which allows him/her to travel to and from the local server of the digital world. After diving into the network dungeon which normal users cannot access, the player is able to hack through dense security by collecting Digimon.
