More Than 320 Digimon This Time Around
This May’s issue of Shueisha’s V Jump magazine announced that Bandai Namco Entertainment is developing a PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita game titled Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory due to come out this year.
Digimon Story: Cybersleuth Hacker’s Memory is a turn-based RPG and takes place in the real and digital worlds. The magazine teased a story about the other side of Cyber Sleuth, where at some point Dagomon (name not yet verified) will appear in Odaiba.
The protagonist, Keisuke Amazawa (changeable name) dives into the world of hackers after being branded a criminal for an incident he has no memory of. The magazine does not mention if the game will have the option of a female protagonist. Keisuke (pictured above) is accompanied with Tentomon, Gotsumon, and Betamon, which presumably are the starters this time. In total, the game will allow the player to raise more than 320 Digital Monsters.
Composer Masafumi Takada and character designer Suzuhito Yasuda might be returning as part of the project. This is just a rumor for now, so take it with a grain of salt. Nevertheless, this direct sequel comes as no surprise given the success of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. Is certainly interesting to see if Bandai Namco can take the series to new heights.
The original Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth released on PS Vita in Japan in March 2015. Bandai Namco localized this title later in the west in February 2016, together with an HD Remaster for PlayStation 4. You can read our review of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth right here.
