Digimon games producer Kazumasu Habu is “positively considering” a port, remaster, or remake of the original Digimon World, he said during a Q&A at Digimon Con 2022.
“We have received many requests for a port or remake of the original Digimon World,” Habu said. “I’m positively considering it. But at the same time, I’m also thinking about which choice—port, remaster, or remake—is better.”
Habu continued, “If I choose port / remaster, then I think it will be highly feasible. If you want a remake, we need to think about how many additional elements you’d need to incorporate into the game. Digimon World has a very good balance between File Island—the stage—and the Digimon that appear. If we add a new field—for example, the Folder Continent—or new Digimon, then I think we should treat it as a new product rather than a remake.
“I would be grateful if you could continue to share your opinions with me. Please give us your opinions in the comments section or elsewhere. We’d love to hear from you.”
