New Encounters and Imminent Crisis
(This section follows the previous story blurb.)
Takuma and friends visited a shrine related to the “Beast Gods” (Kemonogami) legend. The shrine was covered in fog, and there was an otherworldly, suspicious air floating about it.
Takuma and friends separated and explored the shrine, and a suspicious monster appeared before him from the bushes.
The monster, who calls himself Koromon, told Takuma that he feels like he already knows Takuma. Takuma was perplexed by Koromon, but regains composure after hearing a scream from his friends.
When he arrived at the scene, he found his friends attacked by monsters different from Koromon. And the surrounding fog was engulfing the boys desperately trying to escape…
Takuma, surrounded by fog and separated from his friends, managed to repel the monsters that attacked him with the power of Agumon, who evolved from Koromon, and reunite with Minoru and Aoi to make their way back to the school building where the camp was located.
However, the appearance of the school building surprised Takuma and friends. As if several decades of time had passed, the school building was covered in vegetation and looked like it deteriorated over time. Is this really the school where they were staying? Or did they end up slipping through time? Or perhaps they ended up lost in another world? Those types of questions were raised in their minds.
And at that moment…. “Ahhhhhh!”
They heard Ryou’s scream from the school building. A new crisis swooped down on the children…!
“Where are we?”
The children lost in another world are perplexed…!
Ryou Tominaga (voiced by Yohei Azakami)
A third-year student from a different junior high school who also participated in the extracurricular activities camp. He is unable to accept the reality that he has ended up lost in another world, and is afraid and disgusted by Kunemon. To hide his anxiety, he tries to make himself look better. Though the more he does this, the more his cowardice begins to show.
Kunemon (voiced by Ryouhei Arai)
A larva-type monster with lightning shapes on its body. While it cannot speak human language, it can understand what Ryou and friends are saying.

Search for a Way to Survive
In Digimon Survive, the game progresses through “Drama Parts,” which progresses through text adventure, and “Battle Parts,” where friendly monsters battle against enemies like pawns on a chess board.
Drama Parts have two situations that occur within a limited window of time: “Free Actions,” where you choose where to go and who to talk to, and “Search Action,” where you search for a means to survive in a critical situation.
During Search Action, you can freely visit areas from the map. By talking to friends and obtaining information in each area, and by uncovering hints and items by investigating suspicious places, the story will progress. Search for a means to survive!
Digimon Survive is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC worldwide in 2020. In Japan, it will only be released for PlayStation 4 and Switch.
