Two other human characters also unveiled.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth will have a female protagonist option in addition to the previously revealed male protagonist, this month’s V-Jump reveals.

Additionally, the first two non-Digimon characters outside the protagonist were also revealed:

  • Nokia Shiramine – She’s a friendly person who tries to put on a tough exterior, but is actually easily scared. She also holds a deep fascination towards Digimon and meets the protagonist in a chatroom.
  • Arata Sanada – A former big time hacker, he has a serious side, as well as a bit of a big brother personality. Like Nokia, he also meets the protagonist in a chat room.

The game’s battle system, specifically regarding how you’ll recruit new Digimon, also received some slight detail. This is done by scanning Digimon as you encounter them out on the field. Specifics on how the scanning mechanic works are sparse, but the process is said to commence automatically at the start of battles, and that Digimon whose scan levels exceed 100 percent will join your side.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is planned for release on PS Vita.

Thanks, My Game News Flash.

    yeah, the scanning system is more or less just like the previous digimon story series in NDS a.k.a. digimon world DS dawn dusk etc…
    joining sides? I think it means can be converted so you can have it
    exceeding 100% might also mean the converted digimon will have higher status than the standard one

    and I’ve just realized that the female protag had goggle too

  • AlphaSixNine

    Nice. I’ve always enjoyed having the option to choose a female protagonist since P3P did it. :3

    • Renaldi Saputra

      just FYI, since the first digimon story series, you’ve been able to choose gender

      • AlphaSixNine

        lol didn’t know. last digimon I played was Digimon World 2 on PS1. XD

        • Renaldi Saputra

          in case if you didn’t know, the first digimon story series was called Digimon World DS in english…
          and IIRC it’s the first digimon game you can choose gender

  • MrFinalgamer

    TBH, besides the slight bump in the chest, the male, and female protagonists are identical, even the male protagonists has curves that would make most women jealous…

    Nice to see that there’s more human characters, although Arata looks a lot like the MC of Devil Survivor 2. I’ve never played a Digimon game before, but I sure as hell would love to play this if it ever gets localized!

    This is some good news for me anyway. It’s just nice to be able to play as a girl. Though the difference between the male MC and the female MC are…small heh. I’m hoping for more non-Digimon character reveals too. Gotta have the feel of the anime and all that.

  • Lara Croft

    Hope they release a trailer soon. Want to see it in action.

  • fyi1191

    I’ll stick with Male MC unless we get a design like Nokia there.
    And that Female MC, is she secretly WarGreymon? Thanks to her color scheme.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I’ll stick with male MC too, though I bet most of ppl here want to use the female one

  • Ksatmata

    The Name Nokia

  • Wolf Star

    This is deffentely a badass picture from
    Devils surivior 2 director. It has Devils Suravior 1 and 2 feel. I can’t wait till this game gets 50/50 chance of localizing :D ish..

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Bamco Europe community manager Isshak had once said in playstation blog replying a comment asking whether there’s a chance for digimon cyber sleuth to be localized

      Isshak said that there’s one way to help, by signing certain petition


      • Wolf Star

        Damn it bamco!! >~< I love you guys but you guys don't take risks. (Not major risks but small ones at least)

        • Renaldi Saputra

          their cooperation with SCE had made them being more open-minded

          blessed them, now it’s just a problem for those multi-trademark or hard licensing games and those taboo simulation games

  • Somerandomperson

    2015 is still a long way.
    But this is definitely good news.

  • Duc PC-QB

    Localize this shit !!!!

  • Op. Cyber Sleuth

    A petition has been started to drive the localization of this game.

    Check it out if you are interested.


    • Renaldi Saputra

      signed, keep sharing dude!!!

  • LemonsArentForever

    so hyped for this game. need my digimon fix.

  • Samurai Don

    Please get localized, I so want to play this game.

  • 罪罰

    Would import, I liked Re:Digitize. Hopefully this one is in furigana as well.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      if it’s not CERO A, I doubt

      • Audie Bakerson

        Well it is being detailed in v-jump, so I’d say while it is “A New Title for Adult Digimon Fans” I’d say I’m pretty sure they aren’t making an effort to exclude that age-range.

        There’s a screenshot with a bit of dialog in this article, so we’ll know when better scans arise.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          well, inazuma eleven can be CERO B
          V-jump isn’t always for CERO A games, there’s some CERO B too, not sure about CERO C++

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    And suddenly my interest is piqued for this game!

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/chibuki chibuki

    Oh my god whoever bringing it here gets my money. Please!

  • Audie Bakerson

    Huh, for the artist, FeMC’s bust size is pretty small.

    Maybe he’s taken the criticism he gets to to heart… Or they just didn’t want to have to redo the hit boxes.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      maybe the smallest breast size Yasuda designed for this game

  • PrinceHeir


  • Elvick


  • new_tradition

    Oh, that’s nice. I wonder if it makes playing through both genders worth it for some variances beyond different grammar :P

    The story does sound interesting already. Guh…I really want this game over in English *_*

  • SOforever

    far as the “anime” goes I lost interest after season 3 ended

    • Renaldi Saputra

      watch savers, it’s much better than season 2 and season 4 anyway

  • Mikail

    OK guys, girls or in between, we need to sign a petition according to SCE guys, he said there is a possibility the game coming to the west….if we sign this petition https://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/bandai-namco-games-localization-of-the-playstation-vita-game-digimon-story-cyber-sleuth.
