The legendary TV anime returns.

Namco Bandai is preparing a new Digimon RPG for PSP based on the season that started it all. Revealed in the October issue of V-Jump is Digimon Adventure.

The game revives the legendary TV anime, which sees seven kids taken to the Digital World after what they thought would be an ordinary summer away at camp, and aims to fully reproduce the anime to completeness. You’ll see Tai, Agumon, and the rest of the Adventure cast. The beach battle between Greymon and Shellmon, as seen in episode two of the anime, is showcased in the scan.

Also, Digimon Crusader, a new mobile game where players build an army of Digimon and battle, was also announced:

A release date has not been set.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.

       I wish I could import it, but I will not buy an RPG that I cant understand.  Looking at guides online for every.single.word and attack and stuff is too much work for something that’s supposed to be fun :(

    Gosh darnit Japan, stop making awesome games for a system that’ll never get them localized for the west!  HUFF HUFF PUFF PUFF

    (Calms down) Alright please at least port it or let XSEED have it, the only two Digimon games (the other being Re:Digitize) I’ve wanted since the original Digimon World games on PSOne and I cant have either :(

    I don’t care what people say, Digimon will always be more superior than Pokemon in my eyes!

  • DarthBrian

    All these games being announced that we’ll never get is really depressing the crap out of me. :(

      I couldn’t agree more.

      I really wanted to play the recent Digimon World game as well.

      I think I might want to play this game even more, I remember watching the anime when I was a kid. Good memories.

    Maybe we could even get a remake of the original series in high defenition and better animation (But bring back the original voice actors and don’t change the plot to much)

  • Aldridge517

    I’ve got to play this. Childhood nostalgia demands it Lol

    Updated the post with a better scan.

    I hope they pay attention to the human elements as well as the monsters… and maybe allow you to change the group dynamics a bit.

    This isn’t all that important for 01, but if they decide to continue on with later seasons, I’d definitely want to change the story.

    Digimon Adventure and Digimon Crusader …
    it’ll be good to change the story as @facebook-544707094:disqus said. I love DIGIMON so much!!
