Namco Bandai and Prope’s upcoming Digimon Adventure RPG will launch in Japan on January 17, 2013, this week’s Jump reveals. And it won’t just cover the first season and Our War Game movie. It will have original stories, as well.

Upon clearing the game, players will gain access to an original story that brings together the anime’s six protagonists (Tai, Davis, Takato, Takuya, Marcus, and Taiki [or Gerry, as he's named in Digimon Xros Wars' upcoming 2013 localization Digimon Fusion Battle]) in a mysterious airspace interlacing time. Screenshots show Digimon Xros Wars‘ OmegaShoutmon lending his strength to Tai and Wargreymon.

The magazine also reveals the game’s first run bonus. Jump aboard early, and you’ll get a download code for Digivice Ver. PSP. A single screenshot shows a pixelized Agumon displayed on Tai’s classic Digivice.

Other shots in this week’s issue show Izzy with Tai in his apartment during Our War Game, and the battle with Greymon and Kabuterimon against the deadly virus Digimon Infermon. You’ll also see Digi-Pieces, which you can combine with your Digimon to heighten their attributes, so long as the pieces fit!

      I wouldn’t expect. At least not from Namco Bandai.

      Maybe someone like Xseed, NIS, Aksys, or Rising Star can convince Namco Bandai to let them use the license and localize the game. But I doubt it. I can’t remember a Digimon game not published by Bandai.
