Bandai Namco has shared new details and screenshots for Digimon World: Next Order, introducing new characters Luce and Taomon, the possible partner Digimon Gallantmon: Crimson Mode, and more information about the game’s training elements.
Get the details below.
A young girl of many mysteries who lost most of her memories. She’s always holding a Numemon-like plush toy. In what way will the protagonist, Kouta, and Himari encounter Luce?
A close friend of Jijimon’s from the old days, who said goodbye after a certain opportunity presented itself. She is pessimistic and tries not to be concerned with others, and has a quiet and stubborn personality. In this world, Taomon notices someone’s intention to twist the truth, and intervenes.
Gallantmon: Crimson Mode
The highly demanded Gallantmon: Crimson Mode is finally here. For the first time in the series, the Digimon is available as a partner Digimon you can train.
Partner Digimon Training Elements
The unique partner training of the Digimon World series is, of course, present in this game. In addition to the “Care” element implemented in the series thus far, you can now take care of two Digimon at the same time.
Unlike the series so far, an important “discipline” element lets you select commands when needed. The level of “realism” has been significantly improved. If your Digimon win a battle, they might want you to praise them, or sometimes they’ll do whatever they want in the battle. Whether you praise or scold them is up to you. By displaying your Digimon partner’s feelings directly, the player’s behavior will be tested.
Although the city’s reconstruction was progressing smoothly after meeting Himari and Kouta, a way to counter the threat of Mugendramon is still unknown. In the midst of all that, the heroes head for Taomon, the leading sage of the Digital World, even more so than Jijimon, to learn the truth about what is currently happening to this world…
Digimon World: Next Order is due out for PS Vita in Japan in 2016.
