Having headed to Taomon, the protagonists will the learn truth of what's happening in this world...
Players can choose between a male or female protagonist. The game's protagonist is a senior high school student who has loved Digimon since he/she was young. In fifth grade, he/she was the runner up of a Japanese Digimon game tournament.
Other previously revealed characters include: Kōta Hirose and Himari Ōfuchi, two third-year high school students who are in the same year as the protagonist. Kōta's partner Digimon is Yukimura, a Guilmon, and Himari's partner Digimon is Rikka, a Plotmon (Salamon). Other characters and Digimon include: the amnesiac girl Luce, a mysterious cap-wearing unnamed young man, a boy named Shōma, Taomon, Gaioumon (Samudramon), Jijimon, as well as the new Digimon character, The Executioner.
Japanese illustrator Taiki (Lord of Vermilion III) designed the characters for the game. Kenji Watanabe designed The Executioner.
The game will allow for players to use two partner Digimon simultaneously to help in battles. When in a pinch, the two partner Digimon can combine in a new "'EXE'-Volution."
