Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Getting a Western Release
Bandai Namco Entertainment has recently announced that their latest entry in their Digimon franchise, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth , will be making its way to western audiences next year for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. This will be the first World series title to be released outside of Japan since the 2008 title, Digimon World Adventure, as well as the first Digimon game to be released on the Vita outside of Japan. Here is the official synopsis for the game in Western regions:
“Set in the near future, the line between the real and digital worlds is blurred. Logging into cyberspace is part of everyday life. For one teenager, a harmless on-line chat spawns a chance encounter with a mysterious hacker. Little did this teen know, this brief meeting would lead to a digi-monumental adventure.”
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth will return to a traditional turn based style, with new elements added to the RPG. Digi-Lab allows players to digivolve their digital creatures, and because each Digimon can branch out into multiple forms, de-evolve will also be possible to obtain other digivolutions. Players can also scan the data of most Digimon they find in the wild, which will build up a percentage that caps out at 200%. Once this happens, players can summon the Digimon at the Digi-Lab, and can raise them for battle.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth will be available in both physical and digital formats fo PlayStation 4, while the PlayStation Vita will receive digital versions only. Europe will also receive the game next year, but no specific date has been given for either regions. More news and updates to come as the year goes by.
