Bandai Namco Entertainment America and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe revealed on Monday that the Digimon Survive role-playing game will get a release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in the West in 2019. The companies also began streaming an English version of the game's teaser trailer that debuted on Sunday.
The game is slated for release on the PlayStation 4 and Switch in Japan in 2019.
In the game's story, Takuma Momotsuka is suddenly transported to a dangerous other world where brutal creatures lurk. Takuma is a second-year junior high school student, and his partner is Agumon.
The conversational parts of the game will be like anime scenes and will feature 2D illustrations. The development of the story and evolution during battle will vary depending on players' choices. In the exploration parts of the game, the keys to the story are scattered around the field, and players will investigate various points of interest.
In the battle parts of the game, players will participate in strategy game-style Digimon battles on grid-based fields. Actions will require energy, and players will need to manage its use to win.
Bandai Namco Entertainment producer Kazumasa Habu revealed in a December interview that a new Digimon Story game was in the works for PlayStation 4. The latest game in the series, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory, shipped in Japan in December 2017 and in the West in January. The game is available for PS4 and PlayStation Vita, but was developed for PS Vita using the previous Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth game as a base.
