Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Namco Bandai has shared the first two screenshots of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, its recently announced RPG for PS Vita.

If you missed it at Jump Festa, catch the game’s teaser trailer here.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is due out in Japan in 2015.

View the screenshots at the gallery.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    such graphic
    very very wow

  • TheExile285

    Doesn’t show much but it looks great graphic-wise so far.

  • Elvick

    This looks so good.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    They’re making great efforts to hide the main character’s face. I need to see it if the character designs are done by Yasuda or not!
    It seems to be a lot more traditional. Re:Digitize was really annoying to play.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      what annoying?

    • rekka_zan

      What? Re:Digitize was as traditional as a Digimon game could get.

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        I prefer something like Digimon World 3 (in structure). Yeah you took care of your Digimon by making t hem stronger and feeding them but nothing on the level of Re:Digitize. It was like 90% worry about your digimon needing to sleep, use the bathroom or eat and 10% actual fun and exploring. Way too much babying.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          true, but in decode, they fixed it, and making battle have more meanings than just train and train

        • rekka_zan

          Hmm, that’s weird. I found Re:Digitize really fun in the exploring part, and the caretaking part very easy. Food was abundant, especially if you use the farm sidequest, and you can buy portable potty for a low price. There are many vending machines, too. It’s a lot easier than Digimon World 1, but maybe it depends on the player.

          Digimon World 3 was quite good, but it became a grindfest quickly.

    • Budgiecat

      Yeah honestly I didnt really like it either. I actually liked the PSP Digimon Adventure game more and that was more simplified….

  • icecoffemix

    Looks super nice.

    Probably bullshot though, I’d like to be proven wrong but those looks like heavily AA-ed (or rendered at significantly higher resolution).

    • bloodiOS

      *LOL* Yeah, as far I remember, not many Vita games run at 960×544 while sporting AA. To be fair though, if a game is rendered natively at 960×544 on the Vita screen, it’ll look very nice even without AA.

      • icecoffemix

        Yeah, I hope that at least they get it to native. Non intensive-action game should aim for native IMHO.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Best bullshot evar

    • jujubee88

      lol If all these are bullshots I’d be pissed! :O

      Considering that GR looked good in cell shading and this game comes out in 2015, I’d be willing to bet this game will run smooth and look good.

  • crimsonidol

    I WANT THIS!

  • bloodiOS

    Bullshot quality aside, I like how the game looks, nice and vibrant. Man, I want it to be localized!

  • jujubee88

    It really does look fantastic!

    I’m not just saying that! The art direction is very visually crisp! ^^

  • HighBrowDrifter

    I beg and plead…..localize this Bamco! I gladly do things I may regret later on…..(; ̄Д ̄)

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I know that feel
      why Namdai have to doubt to localize such something that is still Jump related series

      • HighBrowDrifter

        Yeah, considering that they localized other games that were considerably weaker in regards to quality. Digimon World Re:Digitize did quite well in Japan….but was never localized either.

        It’s quite saddening….I always preferred Digimon over Pokemon simply because the story-line felt more unique, the characters were more interesting, and the Digimons themselves looked much cooler than Pokemans.

        I raise my glass….in hopes that this will get localized….

        • Charlie

          I thought I was the only one who preferred Digimon over Pokemanz.

  • Charlie

    This has to be one of the best looking anime-inspired games I have ever seen.

  • Hinataharem

    Looks like it could play like world 2, if that is a battle screen

  • Adol Christin

    Very impressive graphics :) Hope this gets localized at least.

  • Xmortal

    Digimon Story Saga was of Nintendo. Digimon Story DS (NA:Digimon World DS), Digimon Story DS Sunburst/Moonlight (NA:Digimon World DS Dawn/Dusk), Digimon Story DS Lost Evolution (Only Japan) and Digimon Story Xros Wars Red/Blue (Only Japan). His style game is similar to Pokemon, Random Battle. Scan Data Digimon.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    seems 3DS isn’t capable for this kind of graphic

  • TheExile285

    Why would there be a 3DS version? Namco has shown that they keep their 3DS & Vita games sepetate.

  • icecoffemix

    Probably redigitize didn’t sell that well on 3DS to warrant for it.

    Or maybe they keep it for the future to maximize profit (NEW CHARACTER GAIZZZ).

  • Renaldi Saputra

    but for extetra and conception II, I see the graphic on Vita weren’t that amazing

  • icecoffemix

    Yes but you can render at very high res and downscale it to get that kind of AA.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    re:digitize decode didn’t sell well bcos many ppl thought it’s just a port, like one piece romance dawn, then some ppl disappointed with psp one, so they didn’t wanna buy anymore if it got something new
    also many digimon fans had psp more than 3DS it seems
