The latest Weekly Famitsu Livestream showed some new gameplay footage for Bandai Namco’s forthcoming RPG Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. The game was developed by Media Vision as part of the 15th anniversary celebration for the series.
In the game, you control either Takumi (male) or Ami (female) Aiba, and it all starts when you wake up one day after investigating curious rumors of new and evolving computer viruses in cyberspace that are being called ‘digital monsters’ by hackers. Upon regaining consciousness, you discover that your brain and body have become altered in such a way that you can now jump between the real world and cyberspace as long as you can find a terminal that grants access to virtual reality. And thus the search to discover why this is all happening and who is responsible begins. Take a look at videos that have been posted so far. The first is a seven minute demonstration.
The second video is longer and even more revealing at thirteen minutes.
Here’s one that’s over sixteen minutes.
If these videos are any indication, fans of Digimon can expect to see a lot of what they love about the series as well as some new things that they can look forward to trying out. This is a PS Vita title, so people will be able to take their Digimon experiences on the road.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is scheduled for release in Japan on March 12th, 2015. There is no word yet of a western release for this title.
