The latest issue of V-Jump has new information on Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory.
The game puts players in the role of protagonist Keisuke Amazawa, a young man who is falsely accused of account raiding that he knows nothing about, and who joins the hacker team “Hudíe” in order to find the criminal that tricked him. As part of the team, you’ll hone your skills as a hacker by taking on the various requests that the team receives.
Hudíe’s base of operations is an Internet cafe. You’ll receive requests via the PC, and can then either investigate the real world or log into cyberspace depending on the request. In dungeons, you’ll be able to make use of hacking skills, as well.
Two new characters are introduced in the magazine.
Erika Mishima is a member of Hudíe, and an extremely shy shut-in. She lives with her older brother. An incident that happened in the past resulted in her awakening as a genius. Erika’s partner Digimon Wormmon, who joined her after she saved him from a sticky situation, is the mascot of Hudíe. He’s a cowardly, clumsy, troublemaker full of curiosity. There will be times when Erika and Wormmon battle in the same party as the protagonist.
Fei is a member of Zaxon, and a violent girl who will go through any means necessary to achieve her goal. She uses the protagonist in order to take down opposing organizations. Her partner Digimon is TigerVespamon. Fei also appeared in Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, whose story runs parallel to this game’s.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2017 in Japan, and in early 2018 in North America and Europe.
