Digimon Survive

Digimon Survive producer Kazumasa Habu has suggested Bandai Namco will soon announce a delay for the survival strategy RPG, which is currently planned for release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2020.

“I apologize for worrying you,” Habu said on Twitter in response to a fan concerned about the lack of Digimon Survive news. “We’re currently reviewing the development team structure and refocusing the schedule for Digimon Survive. We’re coordinating with all parties concerned and plan to make an announcement on the situation in the near future. I apologize to everyone who has been looking forward to the game, but I ask that you please wait a while longer.”

Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:

About

This is a story of survival in a strange new world.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Digimon anime, Digimon Survive presents a brand-new adventure set in a mysterious world with characters designed by Uichi Ukumo, and music by the much-acclaimed Tomoki Miyoshi.

Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger.

As they fight their way back home through an animated world of difficult decisions and deadly battles, players’ choices throughout the game will impact the evolution of their monster allies, and the final ending. Battles in the game are fought in 2D, in a more classic strategy RPG style.

Key Features

  • Gorgeous anime-style graphics.
  • A darker tale about survival and friendship.
  • A story that evolves following the player’s choices and actions.
  • Enjoy tactical RPG combats with over 100 Digimon.
