Re:Digitize Decode's Mirei, Rina Appear in Digimonstory Cybersleuth Game

Also: Tower Records mascot character voiced by Ayana Taketatsu appears in special quest

The March issue of Shueisha's V-Jump magazine is revealing on Wednesday that Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode characters Mirei Mikagura (voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro) and Rina Shinomiya (Haruka Tomatsu) will appear in the upcoming Digimonstory Cybersleuth PlayStation Vita game. Both Mirei and her Mastimon, as well as Rina and her V-Mon will serve as allies to the protagonist who will save him/her in his/her time of need.

In addition, the magazine lists that as a collaboration with Japanese CD and media store Tower Records, a character named Reiko Tawa (a pun on the chain's nickname, 'Tawa Reko') voiced by Ayana Taketatsu (Oreimo, The [email protected] Cinderella Girls) will appear in the game as a guest character. In the quest she appears in, someone is pranking the Shibuya Tower Records building. The player must work with Reiko to save the store from Enamon, who has hijacked the store, and solve the mystery behind his actions.

The voice cast for the game is as follows:

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (The [email protected], 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 Ito (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.

The game will ship in Japan on March 12.
