Bandai Namco has announced that Digimon World: Next Order will be coming West in 2017 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.  Here is a bit about the game straight from the press release:

Digimon World: Next Order begins when players are sucked into the Digital World to discover it is under siege by Machinedramons. Rescued by two Digimon from impending doom, players must forge forward with their Digimon partners and journey through the Digital World to discover the origins of the Machinedramon scourge and find a way back to the real world. Along the way, players will nurture and train their Digimon partners for battle as they progress through the game. Digimon World: Next Order contains over 200 Digimon for players to meet, recruit, and interact with throughout their adventure. Digimon World: Next Order will also give players the choice of playing as either a male or female protagonist and enable players to explore the Digital World with two Digimon partners for the first time in franchise history. The key to finding a way back to the real world and stopping the Digital World from total destruction at the hands of Machinedramons will lie in building strong bonds and providing effective training for each Digimon.

“The Digimon franchise is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and we’re excited to deliver a new Digimon adventure to fans; fueling the flames of their enthusiasm.” said Jason Enos, Director of Brand & Latin America Marketing at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. “With Digimon World: Next Order we’re taking the concept of raising and nurturing Digimon to a new level. Only the best and most diligent Digimon Tamers will be able to save the Digital World from its eminent destruction.”

Here are some of the game’s features:

• Over 200 Digimon from the animated series!
• Choose between a male or female protagonist
• For the fi rst time ever in the series, explore the Digital World with not one, but TWO Digimon partners!
• Your success in battles & the growth of your partners is totally dependent on you: Raise, train, feed, discipline, etc. in real-time to form strong bonds with your Digimon companions. Every interaction & activity matters!
• Evolved AI Battle System: Strong bonds with your partners is key – train your Digimon to excel in AI battles on their own. Cooperation & synchronization between your partners and their feelings will increase your chances of winning. Shout commands and cheer them to victory!
• Recruit and integrate new Digimon into the village to expand & evolve it.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.

    I really enjoyed Cyber Sleuth and I’m happy this one is coming to the West. That being said the lack of a Vita version mentioned there is a bit disturbing. My guess is that the best case scenario would be for them to release a physical PS4 version and a digital only Vita like Cyber Sleuth.

    • Panpopo

      Yeah that is probably what is going happen (digital version for Vita). There may be a physical version like Cyber Sleuth to import, hopefully.

  • MusouTensei

    And I still havn’t played Cyber Sleuth :/
    I wasn’t expecting to spend over 120 hours with Trails of Cold Steel.

    • Panpopo

      Yeah, Trails of Cold Steel can take a long time. Especially if you want to talk to everyone and complete all tasks.
