First look at Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth
posted on 12.19.13 at 03:53 AM EDT by (@salromano)
Namco Bandai's new Digimon game is really pretty.

First scans of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, misreported as Digimon Story: Cyber Truth earlier this week, have surfaced online from this month’s issue of V-Jump.

As previously reported, the game is a rule of right RPG set in near future Japan. In the screenshots, you’ll see our yellow pants hero walking with Agumon, Terriermon, and Angewomon throughout several real world locations.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is due out in 2015. A teaser trailer will be shown at Jump Festa 2014 in Chiba this weekeend.

Thanks, Game Jouhou.

    Petition for localization of game incoming in 3… 2… 1…

    • Zuhri69

      LOCALISE THIS!!!!!!

      • ayb_91

        Localize*. And yeah, please do.

        • Zuhri69

          Dick. But, yeah, LOCALIZE THIS!!!

    • Wolf Star

      I want both games (Redigitize decode for 3DS) and especially this PS Vita game!! It looks sick!! :D I hope it gets localized, it will be a day one purchase for me.

      • ayb_91

        I’m right behind you !!

        • Altin

          AND MY AXE!

  • JonathanisPrimus

    I’ve already sent my tweet to @giocorsi and @shahidkamal

    • icecoffemix

      Thanks, the only thing they could do to (hopefully) save Vita now is to saturate the market with game and more game (and not shovelwares, not implying indies are).

  • icecoffemix

    Looks like DW3 style, interesting.

    • Youko

      Yeah, the three Digimon following you reminds me of that.

      Haaaaaaaaaaaannngh, it looks so beautiful, but I want it localized! C’mon, Bamco!

      • Renaldi Saputra

        the trademark is still being active, there’s still hope indeed

  • new_tradition

    I read “sleuth” and thought it was something related to detective work, haha

  • Elvick

    Ugg, I need it

  • rekka_zan

    Is this being made by tri-crescendo?

  • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

    This game is the (spiritual) successor to Digimon World 3!? Namco Bandai, please… This game’s localization is all I ask from you….

    • Vernauth

      i think this game is sequel of NDS digimon story (Digimon World DS, dawn/dusk, lost evolution)

      • http://twitter.com/RaiuLyn Raiu

        I was referring to the DW3’s game mechanics and all but not the story…

        I’ve edited my comment for my clarification (hopefully)…

        • Renaldi Saputra

          well, digimon story series in DS also used this thing..
          that’s why they called it digimon story too.. only now it’s on full 3D from what I see

  • Pukar Rana

    Looks promising.

  • http://www.japanesetease.net/ JapaneseTease

    Really glad this one comes for the Vita. All this “real-life shop inspired” talk makes me want to buy this game.

  • Budgiecat

    2015???

    • MrKappa

      Yeah that’s insane, Namco must have the skeleton crew working on this game.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        it means a long project..
        they seem tend to be serious in reviving digimon saga and bringing old fans back

        • Budgiecat

          Well this is the third attempt lately (fourth actually if you count the revised port).

          • Renaldi Saputra

            do u mean the digimon 15th anniversary project?
            first re:digitize, second digimon crusader, third digimon adventure, fourth re:digitize decode, fifth this game..

            for the model character, seems they didn’t use re:digitize one like adventure game using re:digitize’s model.. this is maybe why it will be a long project for sure, whole new modelling and so on

  • Renaldi Saputra

    wow
    such game
    very digimon
    much interesting
    instant buy

    • jujubee88

      Not to encourage your habbits of meme posting (and not making a smart or discussion piece comment).. but I like this meme.

      Not always, but I like the meme.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        lol

  • Daniel Whitmer

    Pleeeease come to the US

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it has a low chance, but that doesn’t mean it will never be localized.
      The digimon trademark in US is still active

    • Wolf Star

      If Fusion got dubbed then why not localizing the game?? hmm

      • Renaldi Saputra

        there’s been a digimon trademark in US, Namdai filled it in 2012 and now its status has been being registered.. so, we just wait for their decision or waiting for time.. chance isn’t 0

        • Wolf Star

          Awesome, I didn’t know they filed a new Digimon trademark in 2012. Well the petition for 3DS game that people made few months ago got one of the employes interested. So that’s good :)

  • fyi1191

    It’s not even 2014 yet, and 2015 is already draining my wallet.

  • cloudcaelum

    Can’t wait for 2016, will be localized, i believe, want to believe…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      hopefully

    • jujubee88

      2015. If it was in 2016 I’d have my flying car and not give a crap about anything or anyone!

  • MrRobbyM

    I will buy a Vita for this if it gets localized. I’ve been dying for a new Digimon RPG.

    • Bob

      But this is for Vita…

      • MrRobbyM

        That’s what I meant. Had 3DS on the mind lol.

        • Budgiecat

          But the Vita means life! And the Vita is on life support! So it needs all the support it can get! So support the Vita! Support Life!

          • MrRobbyM

            I plan to buy a Vita either way. I just meant I’d buy one solely for this :)

            • cloudcaelum

              Actually you need to buy Vita for Gravith Rush and Persona 4 Golden, then think about Digimon.

              • HighBrowDrifter

                There better be some YS and Tearaway in your post next time…..

                • cloudcaelum

                  Eu still waitting for YS. :(

            • Wolf Star

              I got Ps Vita for Persona 4 Golden and Gravity Rush but 2014.. oh boy it’s going to change :3
              Now I’m getting those games
              Danganrompa happy trigger Hovic, Gravity Rush 2, Digimon (2015) game and well more. (I can’t think of top of my head)

              • MrFinalgamer

                FFX|X-2! and there’s Demon Gaze if you want a dungeon crawler

                • Wolf Star

                  Yeah that too ^^

                  • TheExile285

                    Conception II too :V

                    • Wolf Star

                      Yep :)

          • HighBrowDrifter

            Good one Bud!…..Puss lol’d and shed tears at the same time…

    • shogunknight

      Its…..a ……vita game

  • TheExile285

    Hopefully there is a trailer at Jump Festa

    • Renaldi Saputra

      and hopefully the rumour of new digimon series become real

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      The scan says we’ll get a teaser trailer. =)

      I’ll add that to the post, actually. Should’ve been there to begin with.

  • HighBrowDrifter

    …..In localization.

  • DarthBrian

    “Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, misreported as Digimon Story: Cyber Truth”

    Does this mean Slay in Tales of Zestiria could be named ‘Tray’ now? :p

    • Renaldi Saputra

      katakana usually have multiple meaning.. like ラスト can be “rust” or “last” according to rusttyrannomon’s name

      for スレイ is slay, tray is トレイ

      • DarthBrian

        Cool. Thanks for info. :)

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Nah, the Japanese blogs originally misspelled it as トゥルース (Turuusu), where it’s actually スルース (Suruusu). I guess that’s what happens when a magazine leaks four days before it’s supposed to.

      Slay (Surei) could be Threi or Thray, though.

      • DarthBrian

        I totally need to learn Japanese. :(

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Woo! Cool. Look at all those games aren’t getting in English.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, we can still import it

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        You understand Japanese? Because I don’t. I don’t import because I can’t fucking understand the game it is pointless.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I understand a bit and can read some kanji after all..
          but for RPG game, it’s kinda troublesome bcos much texts

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            So why import? You wouldn’t truly understand the game. It would be no fun.

            • Renaldi Saputra

              as a loyal digifan, it’s a must even though helpless
              and I can still improve my Japanese

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                Ah. I can understand that. I just can’t bring myself to bringing $60 or more for a game I won’t be able to truly enjoy.

        • FitzpatrickPhillips

          Then learn

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            Cause it is so easy to learn another language. It isn’t. In case you didn’t know.

            • FitzpatrickPhillips

              Its not. But if you started learning right now, by the time this game came out, you’d be fine. And no longer have to cross your fingers and resort to wishful thinking every time a game is announced.

    • DarthBrian

      I am optimistic!!! T_T

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Please don’t be. Keep expectations low, and you won’t end up destroyed inside.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I know that feel of a person that had been supporting for times and eventually lost hope at all

          • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

            It is all Square Enix’s fault too. But really it is Digimon, those don’t get localized often.

            • Renaldi Saputra

              even though some ppl have lost hope, I’ll keep believing it will be localized sometime..
              until I see that the digimon trademark has been expired, from that I’ll lose all hope for real

              • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                If we got this and Re:Digitize I’d be happy. The game retelling Digimon S1 would be nice too, but it is for PSP and well if you watched S1 it is probably very similar.

                • Renaldi Saputra

                  do u mean re:digitize decode?
                  for the PSP games I’m sure there’s no hope at all, even though the trademark.. PSP just doesn’t do..

                  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                    Yes I mean Decode.

  • ShinGundam

    Wow, looks great :o

  • jujubee88

    It even comes with a trading card, like back in the day when the TCG for kids was popular. Cool! ^_^

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia

      I even remember Nintendo doing that for a few Pokemon games and Konami did that with their Yugioh games as well before GX came out.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but digimon TCG wasn’t popular outside japan like other Bandai TCG such as battle spirit

  • Ivan Junior

    Digimon is back to its roots. Cool!

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Can’t tell if Yasuda is doing the designs again. I hope he is.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      the main character looks like a 14-17 yrs old boy..
      not a kid anymore like previous digimon story

      well, that goggle, as always

      I wonder who is the artist too, anyway

  • uchiha victor

    Yesssssss!!!!!

  • JonathanisPrimus

    How many Vita games have been ported to 3DS? The answer rhymes with hero.

  • icecoffemix

    Realistically if redigitize was a success on 3DS this game would have been there. Considering it’s on Vita…

  • tubers

    If it bombs on the VITA, I can see them port it to the 3DS.

    Downscale the graphics (internal resolution, texture quality and dynamic shadows) and it’s probably easily done.

  • disqus_bEugtcOSbp

    Totally agree… If this game really use the Vita features then it will be impossible to port it to 3DS cause hardware is highly inferior.

  • Wolf Star

    Does this count?? I can’t tell if it’s going to be a same game or not by looking at the trailers. I can’t tell about graphics either. I tried looking up 3DS ver instead I get trailers for Ps
    vita and 3DS.

  • jujubee88

    I bet NB could release this next year. They are just waiting to see how the install base is like.

    And, no, I don’t think they would port it to 3DS. They would just can it and use the Digimon name to make some other game. No need to cut bone in a porting process.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Not really. That game was always multi-platform, and never looked like it was pushing Vita.

  • Wolf Star

    Oh ok.. anyway can’t wait :)
