Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

The latest Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth media blast details character Rie Kishibe, the Royal Knight Digimon Crusadermon, and how players will be able to Digivolve their Digimon.

Get the details below.

Rie Kishibe

The Operating Officer of Kamishiro Enterprise, which oversees the EDEN project. Though she has a mellow, yet magnanimous disposition and puts on a considerate air towards other people’s thoughts and feelings, deep down she has complete confidence in her decisions and therefore rarely actually listens to anybody else’s suggestions.


A holy knight-type Digimon and “Royal Knights” member who is king of all Knightmon. It’s deeply involved in the incidents occurring in the real world, but its goal is unknown. Rather than categorize Crusadermon as good or evil, it is true to its own thinking of the word “justice,” and as such is not labeled. That said, if “rule by force” brings peace, then Crusadermon finds value in it. But there is also an unparalleled ruthlessness to the execution of its missions, and it has no mercy for the weak.

Scan, Collect, and Convert Digimon

When you encounter a Digimon in the field, the Digimon Scanner will automatically begin and scan the Digimon. If you accumulate over 100 percent of the Digimon’s data, it is possible to convert that data in the Digi-Lab, and watch it go from a Digi-Egg to Digimon. The larger the percentage you scan, the more that will be added to the converted Digimon’s base abilities.


As Digimon get stronger, they will Digivolve. Their levels and skill points will increase as you win battles, allowing them to Digivolve into a variety of other Digimon. Digivolution for each Digimon is possible by meeting certain conditions. For example, Greymon can evolve into MetalGreymon, MetalGreymon (Virus), Megadramon, or SkullGreymon, and each has their own conditions the player must meet.

Rare Digivolution

Typically, a Digimon Digivolves simply by leveling up and reaching that point naturally as a matter of consequence. However, there are rare digivolutions that can occur through other methods, such as repeated Digivolving and de-Digivolving to break through level caps, as well as by training up latent skill points. Some evolutions require a particular item.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is due out for PS Vita in Japan in spring 2015.
