  • Chogokin

    Digimon revival, here we go!

  • Kaitou

    I hope its for console this time around.

  • DreamDrop♥

    If it’s Adventure 02 I’m cutting people.

  • Fango

    it’s most likely for 3DS since most JP developers like to spend the least amount of development time as possible.

    • Chogokin

      And because the 3DS has a larger install base and is cheaper to develop for.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        Its an iphone game if thats the case


      i don’t want to remember that shitty hardware.

  • ShadowDivz

    I know im gonna get downvoted, but i hope it’s on vita.
    Re:digitize released on PSP. So it’s not completely farfetche’d.

    • Invisbin

      Up voting to be a dick

      • ShadowDivz

        Oh noes. =D

    • Zechs

      I’m positive the majority want it on Vita too. :P

  • Duc PC-QB

    Judging by the teaser font I bet this game will be on iPhone ~~~

    • Sal Romano

      I don’t see anything about the font that might signal what type of game it is.

      The teaser for Re: Digitize Decode wasn’t much diff. Just had a Digimon 15th anniversary thing attached to it because, well, it was Digimon’s 15th anniversary.

  • anfos121

    Non-Nintendo console, please. Region-lock is a curse.

  • Magnumsally

    gunna be 3ds

  • JonathanisPrimus

    I smell a phone or 3DS game destined for Japan-only status.

    • Alkhan

      Unfortunately, that’s what it’ll be.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        if that’s a big announcement, seems it won’t be..
        Crusader and Collectors were not their big announcement

        if 3ds, could be

  • Alkhan

    Vita please. I hate playing games on my 3DS because I don’t like the system design.

    Plus it’ll never get localized so at least on the Vita it’ll be region free.

    • Wolf Star

      I agree, there are couple of 3DS games from Japan I want to play but I cannot thanks to Nintendo and their region locked. For example Digimon Redigitized 3DS (never coming out) I have both PS Vita and 3DS, so I prefere playing on PS Vita because it will be awesome and it needs more game too :)


        yeah vita is awesome, that oled and higher res :)
        plus region free.

        • Wolf Star

          Ikr?? :D I love my Vita it’s amazing device :) that hi res :3 haha

    • Vernauth

      yeah thats kinda sad :(

      i agree for vita or PS3 because its region free.

  • carrebeannut

    i will buy it, if release on vita.

    • HighBrowDrifter

      Can I get a HELL YEAH?!


      region free FTW !!

  • Sevyne

    So many conclusions jumped to in the comments. I’m going to throw my own in the hat as well and say it’s definitely for the Commodore 64.

  • Aurizen

    Wont be localized.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      if it’s a Vita game, I wouldn’t mind if it won’t be localized..

      • Aurizen

        If its a vita game I would love for it to be localized.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          me too anw

  • new_tradition

    Ngh… *bites knuckle*

  • Elvick

    They really should go multiplatform at the very least. Then we can import the Vita version freely when it’s not localized at all.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      I don’t believe Namco Bandai’s ever done a 3DS/Vita multi-platform before. They’re kind of rare, and typically only happen with otaku titles.

      • Elvick

        There used to never be video games.

        There’s a time for everything, and Namco Bandai should start doing it.


      i hope it’s for Vita, region free, higher res and power than 3DS :)

      • Elvick

        Yes, because Digimon games push the boundaries of hardware. (they don’t)

        Let’s face it, licensed games aren’t going to need Vita’s hardware.

        Don’t get me wrong, of the two, I’d rather it be Vita exclusive. But, since that’s a bit “much” to ask, they may as well make it for both. Literal win/win.

  • Willgaea

    I like the real time co-op battling in Digimon World 4 so I hope it’s a long awaited sequel to that game.

  • Blackikun

    i love digimon but another game? come on when this is the BIG News that we digimon fans waiting for… -.-

    • 永次

      Digimon Adventure and Digimon Re:Digitize are awesome games, the games that every fan wants.

      • Blackikun

        Adventure sucks! The Game is more a kick in the ass for fans. To much Taichi and no really love.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          bcos it’s only for nostalgia due to its 15th anniv project

  • G.

    I would LOVE a Digimon World 3 type of game with fully supported online play. But alas, this is probably just a fool’s dream. D;

  • Pukar Rana

    Whatever it is, hope its for both Vita and 3DS.

  • Elken75

    Digimon Musou Game?
    whatever it is, i hope it will be multi platform :D

  • DarkLegacy

    Digimon will look awesome at Jump Festa. If this goes on Vita, then I’ll buy it

  • John Louis Smith

    Hope it’s not an Adventure 02 game; we don’t need any more of that season…

  • Renaldi Saputra

    was hoping for a new 50-ish episodes anime

  • kane

    maybe it wil be on psvita or 3ds but perhaps on psp cause i dont have vita and 3ds

  • Christopher Finnegan

    It would be cool if they made a digimon game that was similar to dragon ball raging blasts 2. Goku’s spirit bomb is similar to wargreymon’s terra force/destroyer. Some digimon are giant and others are small but sometimes their size are reverse. In tamers gallantmon was small but in data squad he was giant so basically make all if them about the same size. All those beams and rush attacks can be design to be similar to dragon ball attacks. Digivolving is the same as changing from super saiyan 1 to 2 or 3. But mainly their mega/ultimate forms have multiple moves so maybe only rookies and final transformation. Herculeskabuterimon was never in the anime but they could add him like they did with super saiyan 3 vegeta and broly. But other than that, their moves will have lots of similarities but the names and the way they use or fire them will be different. Instead of taking 2 fingers on the head and firing a special beam cannon like piccolo, it gets fired threw a cannon like imperialdramon. That to me would be cool. Plus constantly battling 1 vs 1 is really old, so instead they could add a 2 vs 2 coop/4 player mode as well. That’s my idea for 1 new game of digimon. There are several new digimon games that I will love for them to make cause all these failed dragon ball games and tekken games are boring and adventure games get beaten too quickly for me. I know it’s possible since they made raging blasts and tenkihaichi 3 with over 100 characters.

  • Willgaea

    Digimon world 4 was really fun if you had friends to play with. Also that game was insanely hard at the begining. On a side note the max lvl for that game is 999… I made it to lvl 191.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Considerably worse, but that’s to be expected of a port.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    but the gameplay is much better
