posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a promotional video for the Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game on Thursday. The video centers on the new protagonist, as well as the new environments featured in the game.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has also posted the same video.
The new game will ship in Japan this year, and will be available in the West in early 2018. The release will feature the original Japanese dub and English and German subtitles. The game will be available physically and digitally for the PS4 and digitally for the PS Vita.
Like the first Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth game, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory will be a "raising RPG" that takes place in the real and digital worlds. The game will tell the story about the "other side of Cyber Sleuth," set in the same setting as the first game, and where at some point Dagomon will appear in Odaiba. There will be more than 320 Digimon that can be raised in the game.
The game features a new protagonist (seen right) who dives into the world of hackers after he is branded a criminal for an incident he has no memory of. His name, which can be changed, is Keisuke Amasawa.
The new game will share some maps from the previous game, but will add 30 new maps for a total of 90 maps. The game will ship with the original Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth game included, which will be the first time the game will be released on the PS4 in Japan.
Bandai Namco Entertainment originally released Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on PS Vita in Japan in March 2015, and then released the game for PS4 and PS Vita in the Americas in February 2016.
Update: Embedded video from Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe.
