The latest issue of V-Jump introduces two new characters and a new system set to appear in Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory.
The first character is Nokia Shiramine, who appeared in the original Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. She has a strong sense of justice and hates crooked things, and forms a group called the “Rebels” in order to protect Digimon. Her Digimon partners are Agumon and Gabumon, who came to the real world for an important reason, but their memory is unclear.
The second is a brand new character named Chitose Imai. The sub-leader of Hudíe, he is described as sociable and the mood maker of the team. His partner Digimon is Ankylomon, a Digimon whose body is covered with hardened skin and whose protuberances are also very tough.
The new system is called “Territory Battle Quests,” which are battles for power in the dungeon where the goal is to repaint the opposing team’s emblem and expand your territory, which having offers various support effects in battle. You’ll clear the quest by defeating the leader of the opposing team. You’ll receive a reward for doing so, and you can also take a guest character along.
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.
