Digimon World Re: Digitize Decode has double the story

3DS enhanced port currently 80 percent complete.

The story volume of Digimon World Re: Digitize Decode, Namco Bandai’s upcoming 3DS port, will be twice the size of last year’s PSP original, this week’s Famitsu reveals. 

The 3DS game will include two new story chapters, the previously revealed “Lamentable X-Antibody” and “Scheming Demon King.”

The game will add a large number of popular Digimon after tallying up a survey from people who bought the PSP version. It will feature over 160 Digimon. And if the bosses are included, the total is above 200.

Two new systems are also being added:

  • Decode Level: Train your Digimon to draw out their max potential.
  • Degitta: Quickly access news from the Digimon world.

Additional changes in the 3DS version include game balance revisions and dual-screen support.

Decode is currently 80 percent complete. It’s due out for 3DS this summer in Japan.

Thanks, Sinobi.

    large number of popular digimons? that’s freaking awesome! I hope my SkullGreymon full of awesomeness will be in that game! BAMCO, don’t disappoint me!

      nice but honestly I liked the gameplay in Digimon Adventure for PSP better

      • Renaldi Saputra

        digimon adventure have less and less gameplay.. it only focus on the storyline.. the RPG system itself was more or less generic (except for the kizuna combo system).. that’s why it didn’t sell as well as re:digitize

    I just hate when this happen. I was going do import de psp one today but i just give up now ._.

    • Ivan Junior

      better chances to localise it? I hope that happens.

      • Elvick

        I really doubt it. If we get a Digimon game ever again, I will be extremely shocked.

        • Budgiecat

          I never thought we’d get a Monster Rancher game again but we got one for Nintendo DS two years after it’s Japanese release..

        • Renaldi Saputra

          well, it’s kind of weird that digimon action figures got localized meanwhile the game didn’t

  • xMCXx

    And then they make another version for Vita or what?!

      If they do so, then chances of localization will be even higher :P

      LOL WTF is with the downvote.

    2x the story, 2x the reason to localize this puppy.
    Come on, Bamco, you know you want to…

  • Budgiecat

    okay Nintendo, you said you’d help localize 3rd party games so get on this one. No bias for Pokemon either please..

  • TuxedoMoroboshi

    So the new Digimon for this game were selected from a survey taken by people that purchased the original Re:Digitize? Hmmm… does anyone happen to know what the results of this survey were? The fact that the new Digimon were fan selected does give me hope of possibly seeing some long-forgotten fan favorites.

    And ugh, this game NEEDS to get localized! Seriously.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    yea, they’re missing so much important digimon..
    like when there’s no metalseadramon for seadramon line, it’s so shocking.. how could a sea snake dragon monster can only evolve into a little sea fairy??
    also no hi-andromon for andromon line, that’s kind of disappointing..
    and then they miss LOT of DMW 1 original digimon like mamemon, metalmamemon, giromon, panjamon, skullgreymon, monochromon, etc which are ’97-’99s digimon.. too much overrated digimon in re:digitize yet missing the original ones
    they should add it
