Kenji Watanabe, a designer responsible for creating a variety of Digimon, has designed a new Digimon for Digimon World: Next Order called the “Black Knight,” the latest issue of V Jump reveals.
Dubbed the “Enforcer,” the Black Knight is a Digimon similar in appearance to Omnimon Zwart, and is shrouded in mystery.
The magazine also reveals a new character, whose name is currently unknown, who wears a knitted hat and carries a Digi-Egg. The protagonist and friends will meet him on their journey. (He totally looks like the protagonist of Digimon World 1.)
There’s also information on a new system called “EXE-Volution” that lets your two partner Digimon revive and “evolve” through the power of friendship when the Digimon are in a pinch.
Digimon World: Next Order is due out for PS Vita in Japan in 2016.
Update 10:20 p.m.: The Digimon World: Next Order official website was updated with a direct-feed image and short description of the new character.
“A man with a black knitted hat and firing a sharp eye, everything about this character is shrouded in mystery. What is the significance of the Digi-Egg he holds in his hand?”
