posted on 2017-04-22 02:00 EDT
The game will feature the new character Erika Mishima and the returning character Fei. Erika is "is a genius hacker who has the special power to link her brain with the EDEN server (a next-gen web service) and the ability to hack the EDEN network."
Fei is "a violent leader of the hacker group called Zaxon. She is a remorseless leader who enjoys ruining other people's lives."
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 (Bandai Namco Entertainment also spells his last name as Amazawa).
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.
