Toei Animation has launched the official Twitter account for Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters—its new cross-media project consisting of an anime, video game, and more—revealing the first artwork of the new series.

The Twitter banner showcases the protagonist and his new Digivice, as well as a number of new Digimon (the Digimon to his left looks similar to Gumdramon), and some “app” icons featuring more new Digimon.

The face of the Digimon Universe project, as seen in the teaser artwork and on the Twitter profile, is this still-to-be-named monster:
