The official Twitter account for the Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters multimedia project launched on Wednesday, and its background and icon offer the first full look at the characters. The background features the apparent human protagonist with a Digivice, and the background and the icon feature new monsters.
The television anime series will premiere this fall, and the Dengeki Online website describes the anime:
The key to the anime's story are smartphone apps that many people around the globe are using. Inside these apps, AI life forms called "app monsters" or nicknamed "appmon" are hiding.
The project is aimed at young boys, and it is also getting a "digital kids card game," toys, a game, and a magazine, among other products.
The International Tokyo Toy Show 2016 will reveal more information about the project on Thursday.
Update: The Twitter account confirms that the anime will air on TV Tokyo starting in October. Thanks, ChibiGoku
