Prope-developed Digimon fighting game due out this fall.

Digimon All-Star Rumble

Bandai Namco has announced Digimon All-Star Rumble, a new Digimon fighting game coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11 in North America and this fall in Europe.

In development at Prope, which made the PSP Digimon Adventure game, All-Star Rumble is a party-arena multiplayer game. The story begins when the Digital World is in a time of restored peace after overcoming numerous wars and crises. However, as Digimon must battle to Digivolve, the Digimon propose a “Digimon Evolution Tournament” to determine the world’s strongest fighter.

The game features 12 playable base Digimon and a total of 32 Digimon forms after Digivolution, ranging from Digimon between Digimon Adventure to the more recent Digimon Fusion. There are 10 different battle arenas, and players can collect DigiCards to power-up their Digimon.

Eight base Digimon have currently been confirmed: Agumon, Biyomon, Dorulumon, Gabumon, Gatomon, Shoutmon, Tentomon, and Veemon.

Get the debut trailer and a fact sheet below. View the first screenshots at the gallery.

Summary

Jam-packed with an all-star cast from the Digimon Universe, Digimon All-Star Rumble throws down with immersive 3D battle arenas and high-impact, in-your-face fighting action.

After overcoming countless crises, the Digital World now exists peacefully once again. Although Digimon quarrel amongst themselves on occasion, the world as a whole is a peaceful place… perhaps too peaceful…

The incredible defenders of the Digital World have grown bored and peace brings no satisfaction. A world without chaos has extinguished the driving force behind their existence – to Digivolve. To pacify the growing unrest, a proposal was made… “Let us gather all Digimon who seek to Digivolve and hold a tournament to crown the strongest of them all!” And so began, the “Digimon Evolution Tournament.” A tournament of Digi-monumental proportions.

    WHAT??!!!
    FINALLY!!!
    NEW RUMBLE ARENA GAME!!

  • fyi1191

    Not the Digimon game we wanted. Oh well.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but it’s going to US
      seems a good hope for digimon games

    • Mnoz

      The problem is if this thing doesn’t sell well they’ll use that as an excuse for not localizing the handheld games (or any digimon game ever).

      • Renaldi Saputra

        that’s why we should support this

  • Renaldi Saputra

    DIRECTLY FOR US & EU!!!
    WHAT A SURPRISE!!!

  • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

    There’s a trailer for this – it’s 1.5 gigs, though. Taking a while to download.

    Edit: Never mind! Bandai Namco EU just uploaded it. In the post now.

  • OverlordZetta

    Only 12 playable characters? That’s a bit disappointing considering there are six shows to cover, and almost half of them look like they’re from one show.

    … On the other hand, they got two Xros Wars Digimon in, so I can live with whatever else they do so long as Guilmon gets in.

    Though I’m baffled as to why they’d advertise only having ten stages. That seems pretty low.

    • Mnoz

      DLC dude, DLC.

      • OverlordZetta

        I’d be okay with that.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      we should support this so that the rest digimon games can also be localized

      • OverlordZetta

        Oh, I’ll be supporting it. If I had the money I’d get ten for the Xros Wars Digimon alone.

      • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

        Indeed. Perhaps this game will be BAMCO’s marker to see if the franchise retains a strong backing in the US. If so and hopefully, that would convince them to localize Cyber-Sleuth in the future.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          http://bandainamcous.tumblr.com/post/93406282651/attention-digi-fans-there-are-few-fan-bases-as

          they mentioned our digimon campaign this far

          anw we should show them that digimon fanbase is still very strong in the west

          • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

            To refute also that earlier “Digimon is not the same as it was.” Prove that “Digimon is still the same as it is” in the West.

        • OverlordZetta

          I would actually worry if that’s the case.

          The RPGs have a ton of Digimon and are a bit more unique in that aspect.

          This is a party fighter releasing between two Smash Bros releases with a fraction of the cast size and is undoubtably going to be missing a few fan favorites given the 8/12 characters we have now. I can’t help but worry this won’t hit the mark they might be looking for.

          • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

            Yes. I think this game, perhaps would be better to dodge Smash’s release date. Something tells me… Which I do not want to happen, could be “eaten alive” by Smash Brothers.

            • Renaldi Saputra

              maybe this is created to compete with smash bro’s

              • OverlordZetta

                I sincerely doubt that.

                Maybe try to cash in on the hype, but never compete.

                • Renaldi Saputra

                  I see, hopefully not being killed by smash bro’s

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      There’s only four more characters left to be unveiled – so I’m hoping for Guilmon, at least. And Gumdramon, maybe. He was kind of cool.

      • OverlordZetta

        >And Gumdramon, maybe. He was kind of cool.
        Forgive the lack of a thumbs up image – the only reason I’m not posting one is that it would be redundant with my icon.

        That said, since I don’t think the dub’s gotten to him yet and this seems to be a “direct to/made for the West” game, I don’t think he’ll be there. I’d love it if he was though!

    • Jessi Cat

      Maybe they’ll add more character/stage stuff as dlc? XD with all the adventure mons (and no Gomamon :/) I’m wondering who the others will be. I’d guess Guilmon, Veemon and Renamon but who knows

      • OverlordZetta

        Veemon is already confirmed, I think, isn’t he?

        I wouldn’t mind Gomamon if there were room myself.

        • Jessi Cat

          Ah I hadn’t seen those other screenshots until now ^^;
          Have a feeling we won’t get Impmon (since he doesn’t really have an evolution line), which makes me sad since he’s one of my faves from Tamers

  • Rafael Martines

    Well… as a non Nintendo player… I need to get this :D

    • 罪罰

      ..?

      • Mnoz

        Translation: He can’t get smash, so he’ll get this.

        • Rafael Martines

          This :D

  • DarthBrian

    I guess I’m going to have to get this if I want any other Digimon games to be localized huh? >_>

    Okay. Sign me up!

    • Elvick

      They’ve played our hands. :p

  • articuzwolf

    where is mah GUILMON and RENAMON! they better fill 2 out of those 4 unannounced characters

    • Blarg

      Lets hope Guilmon is better in this than he was in 2. :l

  • http://shadious.tumblr.com/ Vince

    Now this is interesting. Perhaps the first Digimon game in the US after many years. Interesting also that the US gets this game first compared to Japan.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      this is a new hope for digimon games

  • Physics

    Support This! Show Bandai Namco that Digimon is not DEAD in the west!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, we must show that the fanbase is still strong

  • Anime10121

    Lol, so the west can get this, but not the games we’ve been begging for for the past 4 or so years (I mean, I can kinda understand why with the platforms they’re on but still)…

    Oh well, I’ll likely get it anyway, and its funny that this came before that Pokemon fighter teased in that anniversary Pokemon thing:P

    But at the least, I hope this aint no full $60 title, as it doesnt look all that polished..

    • Renaldi Saputra

      as long as it’s fun to play, I’m not bothered by that “not-that-polished” thing

      • Anime10121

        I’m not either…as long as its not a full $60 title. As the character count and stage count are REALLY miniscule and with it being an arena fighter, will likely have no story campaign to speak of, so I just dont know…

        I like Digimon, but I’m more a fan of the Adventure series and the old RPG’s for Psone, so I dont know if I can jump on this on the slight chance that they MAY localize the Vita/PSP games based on the success of it. If its not full priced, I’ll be a bit faster to support it, but I honestly dont know yet…

        • OverlordZetta

          It shouldn’t be less than $50 if you ask me – unless they’re making it a budget digital title, if this is intended to be a full console release it should be priced like one.

          • Anime10121

            It all depends on how fully featured the title actually is. As right now for a 4 on 4 party based game, a 12 count character roster (even with the Digivolutions added in) is kinda low.

            I’ll give it the benefit of doubt though and wait for more info which will assuredly come out of Gamescom in a couple weeks though…

            Like I said though, I’ll buy it one way or another just to throw my support in, but whether or not I pay full price for it is whats up for debate…

  • DarthBrian

    Any chance of Palmon? I want to pwn fools with Lillymon.

    • OverlordZetta

      I think any more Adventure Digimon would be overkill.

      • DarthBrian

        More like awesome-kill.

        • OverlordZetta

          When there are five other shows that don’t even have half that representation? Nah.

          • DarthBrian

            Why do you hate Lillymon? :(

            • OverlordZetta

              I don’t, but I don’t like one series out of six getting blatant favoritism when it means the others lose out. If there could only have been 12 characters, each series should have only gotten 2.

              • DarthBrian

                If it was up to you, what 2 digimon from each series would you pick?

                • OverlordZetta

                  What I would pick personally or what I would pick based on fairness and representation?

                  I’d say the two most major Digimon from each show. The Agumon and Gabumon of each, essentially.

                  • DarthBrian

                    fairness and representation.

                    • OverlordZetta

                      Then yeah, the “main” two of each show.

                    • Revorse

                      Agumon and Gabumon
                      Veemon and Wormmon
                      Guilmon and Terriormon
                      Takuya and Koji….
                      and I don’t know the rest.

                    • OverlordZetta

                      Agumon MK2 and Gaomon, then Shoutmon and Greymon/Damemon/Dorurumon/Balistamon/Gumdramon.

                      Terriermon could switch with Impmon I think.

            • Elvick

              I would’ve taken her over Tentomon. Even though Togemon is retarded. Lillymon makes up for it.

      • Elvick

        I want Kumamon!

        Frontier was great imo. (though the transformations were soooo tedious)

        • Renaldi Saputra

          what Kumamon? Bearmon or Chakmon?

          • Elvick

            I posted a picture, but you’d have to view the comment from a new page/refresh the page to see it. Since disqus is ghetto and won’t display pictures you upload when you click the ‘view new’ from the existing page for whatever reason… (same thing with edits)

            I digress. Chakmon. I don’t recall Bearmon being in Frontier. Then again, it’s been a bit since I’ve watched.

            • Renaldi Saputra

              Bearmon was in frontier, the movie one

        • JoJo_718

          Nope, it needs more Arbormon and “Dun, dun” remember to Brush your teeth after you wake up.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      let’s hope there is, because I believe there are still some unannounced update for it (mainly new characters)

  • http://twitter.com/M_Demolish Demolish

    What Digimon on ps3 this Fall in US&EU?

    Yes finally,please make limited Edition Bandai Namco :D

  • OverlordZetta

    Thinking on it, if anyone thinks 12 base Digimon into 32 total forms sounds weird, I have a theory.

    Some of these characters will probably share forms. If each character has three, then you would think there would be 36. However, if Gabumon and Agumon both go from their Megas to Omegamon, then that leaves us with 35. With the inclusion of more than one Xros Wars Digimon (from Taiki’s army anyway), it means anyone other than Shoutmon only has the option of… becoming Shoutmon. So there might be some xrosover there as well.

    If Wormmon gets in? They’ll both probably share Imperialdramon.

    Alternatively, some characters just might not evolve as much.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      I assume there will be some unannounced characters
      just keep an eye on it, there might be some upcoming updates

      • OverlordZetta

        I can’t see them going back on “there will be 12 base characters” – regardless, if they add more, the amount of evolutions would go up too I would think, so that’s neither here nor there in regards to what I’m pointing out (which is the fact that 32 total forms for 12 base Digimon is an odd number unless there’s crossover or suffering amount of forms between characters).

  • Ping92

    a digimon game? awesome!

  • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

    I feel a James Gordon’s Dark Knight quote -reworded- coming…

    Well, at least a Digimon game is coming over.

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

    Well this came outta nowhere

  • Wolf Star

    I wasn’t expecting a Digimon game to be localized… O__o I’m buying this since this is the closest Digimon game in years!! :D

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but this isn’t a localized one, it’s exclusive for US & EU

      • Wolf Star

        Really?? Woah

    • Anime10121

      As Renaldi said, this one aint localized, its actually being made for the west! And by Yuji Naka’s (Sonic’s creator) studio no less!

      • Renaldi Saputra

        I think this is the first ever digimon game exclusively for US & EU

        • Anime10121

          It’ll be released in Japan, guaranteed, at a later date…

          • Renaldi Saputra

            idk
            but IIRC for Rumble arena 2 (a.k.a. Digimon Battle Chronicle as they named it in japan) was the very first digimon game handled by US developer.
            and it’s the only digimon game that use “digivolve” with english narrator even in the JP version

        • OverlordZetta

          I’m expecting them to announce it for Japan during the anniversary stream.

      • Wolf Star

        That’s good, I just wish we got Digimon cyber slauth and the 3DS game :( Well this game is closest to a Digimon game in the states.

  • Matthew Zeng

    Yes! Digimon!!!

  • orzorzorz

    WHY BAMCO

    i’ll support this for the sake of re:digitize and cyber sleuth but i’m still upset

    • Renaldi Saputra

      hey dude, this might be the beginning of all
      a new hope for digimon games in general

      we should support to show that digimon fanbase is still big outside japan to them!!

  • metaliquid

    wargreymon too op

  • Bruno Cesar

    One day too early, dammit!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      yeah, tomorrow is the Odaiba Memorial day
      and digimon adventure 15th anniversary event will be held on niconico live streaming

  • Elle

    Uh I’m not entirely sure but it really looks like they are reusing assets from the ps2/gc game digimon rumble arena 2. I hope this sn’t $50-60.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Sounds, and looks, like a digital only release to me. I guess the recent One Piece titles have done well enough digital-only over here that Namco-Bandai has no problem doing more releases like that… and Digimon seems like a perfect IP with which to do so.

      So I’m gonna guess this is digital only for sure. And $30 or less (we don’t know how much content is in there, and Bandai-Namco likes to price things a little higher than they probably should, etc.)

      • Mnoz

        From the YouTube video description “DIGIMON All-Star Rumble is scheduled to arrive at RETAILRS in Europe and Australasia for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft in fall 2014.”

      • OverlordZetta

        I’m expecting $40-$50 myself.

    • OverlordZetta

      Does it? It might just be that they’re similar models.

  • Solomon_Kano

    This… this isn’t the Digimon I was looking for, but Prope is pretty awesome!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but this might be a nostalgia too for rumble arena players
      so this is not that bad

      • Solomon_Kano

        I didn’t bother with Rumble Arena, so that does nothing for me, but I guess I still get Prope either way.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          I see, well, at least Bamco still remember us

  • PrinceHeir

    The only digimon game i played is Rumble Arena from PS1 which is awesome as hell!!

    I’ll definitely try to get this!!

    Budgiecat Bamco US/EU is finally listening(at least)!!

    • Elvick

      I loved that game… someone stole my copy. ;_;

    • Budgiecat

      slowly but surely

      need Godzilla localized confirmation (but I know that’ll happen…..I hope)

  • Jesse

    I didn’t see before that it was being made just for overseas. XD I’m sure Japan will get it at a later date, though.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      well, I think this might be made exclusively just for outside japan digimon fans, since they won’t localize super xros wars series as their “representing anime games” for the ongoing series.
      this game features xros wars (fusion) digimon one, I believe this is made for it…

      I even saw Saban Brands on the last second, it proves

      • PrinceHeir

        Nope, it will be localize in later date just like Naruto games.

        No way the West will get something exclusive in a Japanese franchise.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          well, who knows, let’s just see

          the more important thing is Bamco finally don’t forget about us anymore

          • Budgiecat

            Except when Gundam, Idolm@ster, SRW OG and God Eater 2 are concerned…

      • OverlordZetta

        Super Xros Wars probably just missed the mark since they were DS games releasing on the end of the DS’ life in Japan – Fusion didn’t come out here until the DS was long dead.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          that’s what I meant, they won’t ever localize the already-dead DS digimon story super xros wars one for representing the ongoing series, so they then made a whole new game which will still representing the existence of the ongoing series, and this is the outcome

    • PrinceHeir

      It always happens with Namco games for some reason.

      Naruto Ultimate Burst 3 and Revolution came before Japan.

      Dragon Ball games as well.

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    I want more Power Stone-type games, and I like Digimon. Guess Digimon Fusion must be doing well on NickToons if Bandai’s bringing over a Digimon game once more… been a loooong time since Digimon released here. That’s awesome! Hope it’s good!

    But man, did Rodea the Sky Knight ever come out? Out of everything Prope has done so far, this game by far looked the most interesting:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoNwygEvr0w

    • Solomon_Kano

      Nah, Rodea never came out.

      I do believe Naka said it’s finished though, so we’re just waiting for Kadokawa to put it out. They filed a new trademark for it back in May, so hopefully it resurfaces at TGS.

    • Takeshi

      “Guess Digimon Fusion must be doing well on NickToons if Bandai’s bringing over a Digimon game once more”

      Digimon fusion is more or less a financial failure over here.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        they even brought Imperialdramon figure by SH Figuarts in comic-con few days ago

        • OverlordZetta

          I don’t think the figures aimed at banking on nostalgia really speak to that. Xros Wars never had much merch to begin with anyway.

  • Elvick

    Will buy… though it’s not my ideal Digimon game. :P

  • PrinceHeir

    Speaking of Monster games.

    Can we get a new Monster Rancher as well? :D

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emN6Vj_KwsE

    • Renaldi Saputra

      KOEI Tecmo is a super nice one, so if we ask together, they might listen to us

    • Nitraion

      They might create something like Pixie DLC costume first :V
      yeah joke aside i miss MR too
      too bad KT busy with their moe girl bussiness

      • Renaldi Saputra

        as long as the fans are asking, I’m sure KT will listen into it. They’re super nice guy

        • Nitraion

          I dunno i think most of us that remember MR is like 1988-1993 kids? i mean there is no new anime like pokemon and digimon unless they promote them again

          • Renaldi Saputra

            but, hey, even they can revive Deception (Darkness Princess) series, I heard it’s near dead but KT decided to brought it again. So I think nothing’s impossible for KT

        • Budgiecat

          Where’s muh Zill O’ll Infinite, Winback 3 and Seven Magic Mansions?

          • Renaldi Saputra

            idk, but maybe there hasn’t enough fans are asking about

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Yes! More like Monster Rancher 2.

    • desponent

      We need more monster raising sim in general, the genre has been dead since PS2, arguably since PSX (pokemon is an rpg). :/

  • Nitraion

    I hope its not like Rumble arena 2…
    Rumble arena 1 was a blast though

    • 黒竜崎

      You just stated my worst fear. A horrible childhood game indeed.

    • Jervaughn Stewart

      I’m confused, what was wrong with rumble arena 2? I actually liked it.

      • Blarg

        2 felt clunky and the characters had no weight. The movement was really unbalanced, their attacks were awful, and don’t even remind me about the special attacks. By itself it was an alright game but compared to 1 it was awful.

  • new_tradition

    I’m really reluctant about buying this. I wanted the two RPG games, not something like this. I like my solo campaign modes :/

    Well depending on price point I might cave…

    • Renaldi Saputra

      but this is the beginning of all
      if this sells well, we can even got the rest of digimon games
      so anyway we should support

    • Elvick

      But… we can’t not buy it… D:

      This is sort of a chance to do something other than a petition… and then hope that factors like different platforms, and the fact this is a spin-off that looks more low budget than both the games we want don’t go unnoticed by Bamco.

      • new_tradition

        Ugh, I know, I know, but I hate these kind of “maybe” tactics.

        “Oh, you want those T-Rated RPG Digimon games? Then buy the E rated multiplayer brawler game and we’ll think about it >:D”

        And no one from Bamco even said anything like that (yet?). We’re just all furiously praying this is the case.

        Anyways, like I said, I’ll probably cave, but I can’t help but feel a little grumpy over it >3>

          *Bamco laughs as they hold Digimon RPGs hostage with a knife*

        • Elvick

          They don’t have to say it, if this tanks hard that doesn’t bode well at all for other Digimon games. It’s just how it is, sadly.

          It doing okay or better can’t hurt, but it doing awful will hurt.

    Reminder for Digimon fans: Niconico will live broadcast the Digimon Adventure 15th Anniversary Event tomorrow morning from Odaiba at 5:30 a.m. ET (18:30 Japan time).

    Bandai is preparing both English and Japanese streams, though I’m not sure if there will be an actual English translation given that it’s live:

    English: http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv186621079
    Japanese: http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv185500568 (region-locked)

    There will be a screening of the Digimon Adventure: Our War Game movie (exclusive to the Japan stream), a special performance of theme song “Butter-Fly” by Koji Wada, and hopefully a surprise or two.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s August 1 here already in Indonesia, happy odaiba memorial day for digifans there

    • OverlordZetta

      Is it a live performance? I remember he got sick during Xros Wars (which is why Psychic Lover did Tagiru’s theme song instead of him I imagine), is he better now?

      • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

        I guess. Says it’s a live performance right there in the description. I dunno anything about him being sick, though. But I take it he’s all healed up if he’s performing.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        he’s been doing well since october 2013
        and he had done some digimon concert on thailand, macau, and some countries

        he’s awesome
        and after digi adv anniv event, he’ll go to hongkong

        • OverlordZetta

          That’s awesome! I was worried.

    • Elvick

      Awesome, thanks for the heads up!

  • Guardian Byakko

    “party-arena multiplayer game” so does that mean players can team-up against enemies as well or is it just 4 characters tops?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      we still don’t know, maybe let’s just keep an eye of it

      • Guardian Byakko

        Yeah I guess it is too soon to say, here’s hoping tgs shines light on it

  • Guardian Byakko

    Flamedramon and option to do 1v3, 2v2 or 2v1v1 and I’ll preorder:). Regardless I’m getting this game to support digimon localization and it looks interesting

  • Markrs

    There’s SOOO many Digimon we could’ve chosen from, yet they stick us with a mere 12? Agumon, Biyomon, Gabumon, Renamon, Guilmon, Veemon, Hawkmon, Gaomon, etc. So many from the main cast have been snubbed :( I would rather have a huge cast with one digivolution each and maybe the favorites get two.

  • Chigasumi

    Hopefully Bamco would localize Re:Digitize: Decode and Cyber Sleuth if this sells well.

  • Yo Bo

    I’m really pumped for this! I’ve been looking forward to the next iteration of Digimon Rumble Arena for years, and this is it! Hopefully the gameplay will be as fun as it used to b in the first and second Rumble Arena.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it uses a 360 degree brawling, not a linear one like rumble arena 1 & 2

      • Yo Bo

        Yep, kinda like the Nauto Storm series it seems. Knowing Bamco though, they can definitely make it work, so I’m still hopefull.

  • Yo Bo

    • Renaldi Saputra

      man, I was hoping tentomon will become heraklekabuterimon, not atlurkabuterimon one, it has its original ultimate(mega) form

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      I wasn’t aware that our post didn’t already have all that.

  • Budgiecat

    wow they beat Pokemon (Pokken) to the punch no pun intended.
    And Wii U skipped again…

  • xroxas

    this game bring back nostalgia and memories from rumble arena :)

  • Bitrip

    My life is complete.

  • Aldridge517

    I love the Digimon Rumble series, but if there’s no Impmon than I think I’ll pass.

    • Charlie

      So you’re going to dismiss a series you supposedly love because one particular character isn’t in it? That sounds pretty ridiculous to me.

      • Aldridge517

        Same reason why I pass on One Piece games with no Eneru :P

        • Charlie

          That’s lunacy!

  • Guest

    i guess Wii U APIs is a mess so 3rd parties doesnot even bother to port their games into it.

  • Charlie

    I’m beyond excited for this game. The Rumble Arena series was an integral part of my gaming life as a kid. In fact, I was replaying RA on the PS1 just yesterday and it’s still a blast to play. Not to mention the immensely underrated soundtrack. I could listen to that shit for days on end.

    • Blarg

      I wish they returned to RA 1 for sequel-material rather than 2 and whatever else they’re doing now. RA 1 just felt right with good controls and combat.

      • Charlie

        I agree. RA 2 was fun but NOT as fun. I don’t know if it’s the nostalgia blinding me or if it really isn’t as good as the original.

  • Tetsu

    – Really awesome that we are getting a Digimon game!

    Seriously, it’s about time!

    – I wish there were WAY more Digimon, the character count seems extremely low, especially for a party-style fighter.

    – Why is Metalgarurumon so freaking tiny? Look at him in comparison to Gatomon!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s always like that in many digimon games, the size were set

  • Hexodious

    This is the last time I actually believe whatever Bandai says.

    I´m going to skip it, we asked for Decode and Cybersleuth not for this.

    • Elvick

      That’ll sure prove Digimon is a viable series in the west!

      No one asked for this, because it didn’t exist to us before today, lol.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        but this is still not that bad
        it’s prope which is working
        and the trailer looks awesome

        • Elvick

          Game looks fun, though visually not that great and content wise it’s a bit lacking (unless it is a digital game).

          But yeah, it doesn’t look “bad”. Just nice to have a Digimon game to buy for once, rather than signing petitions and saying we want stuff.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            but this is the outcome of the digimon campaign by Operation Decode. Maybe this is not the right answer for us, but they definitely still care of us. And bringing a decent game is always welcome

            read it here

            • Elvick

              That wasn’t what I meant. I meant, it’s nice to put out money where our mouth is for once. There’s only so much you can do with a petition (sign it once, spam it) and spam that you want the games on social media.

              Having a game to buy, and play, is better.

              • Renaldi Saputra

                but it’s Bamco after all, they don’t want to bring a game with long translation progress first, it’s much risky. They still don’t believe in digimon games marketing bcos of digimon championship bad sales. This game is less risky, and fighting game contents are fewer. This is not KOEI Tecmo which directly listen to what fans want. But this is still acceptable and we should make them believe in us again

                • Elvick

                  I know… :

      • Hexodious

        Yeah, and next year they’re going to announce another game that people didn’t ask for, the cycle continues.

        • Elvick

          Doubt it

          • Hexodious

            Sure, whatever.

  • Some guy

    Power stone with digimon? I dig it.

  • 黒竜崎

    Guilmon? Terriermon? Renamon? Impmon? Don’t disappoint me Bandai -_-

  • Renaldi Saputra

    btw @salromano:disqus I wonder why my comments are getting moderation 1 day after I post it

    • http://twitter.com/kazumalynx Zero

      Looks like someone is mass flagging all your comments. I’m approving them all now. Be sure to get in touch with me if it keeps happening.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        roger

  • BSFsonic06

    Hopefully Patamon will make the playable list!

  • Vernauth

    12 characters seems too low for all star games… they should expanding rumble arena 2 characters

    Digimon Adventure

    Agumon
    Gabumon
    Biyomon
    Palmon
    Tentomon
    Gomamon

    • OverlordZetta

      This isn’t a direct sequel to Rumble Arena, so they would have to start from scratch.

      And that’s way too much of a bias for Adventure for my tastes.

  • http://jump-galaxy.com/ Theotanasia

    The hype is real for this game. Can’t wait, too excited!! :D

  • http://myanimelist.net/profile/Rukuroance MisterMukuro

    Want to know the characters so bad >.<

  • Blarg

    I’ve wanted another Rumble Arena game since I played the first one.

  • Blarg

    Also, why is the roster always so bizarre? Dunno if it’s just me but Biyomon and Tentomon? Really? They couldn’t of picked anyone better, maybe from the other shows?

    • zuuum

      I really really really hope it’s only the “starting” roster. Some unlockable characters would be cool.(even some DLC I guess…) but they can’t go under 23 playable character if you as me…

      • Blarg

        I really hope theres more from Tamers, I quite enjoyed the Rumble Arena 1 roster.

        • Elvick

          Tamers is really popular, so I’m confident that it’ll be represented. Unless it ends up being just Fusion and Adventure/02, which would be weird to me.

          Even the three ‘starters’ for Tamers are popular. Renamon and Terriermon ftw

          • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

            I feel like Fusion and Adventure sound about right to me; they’re current. But “legacy” and “favorites” like Tamers would probably be held as DLC. That seems likely for a small budget title. It’s only 12 fighters after all. This is an “arcade game” for sure, but they can expand it if it does well.

            This is Bandai Namco. This will have DLC :)

    • OverlordZetta

      I believe it’s to tie in with the Adventure anniversary.

      • Blarg

        Ah okay thanks, that makes much more sense.

  • Rainekos

    forget money this year. If this continues I am going to get broke haha

  • X Gen

    Digimon Games Are Becoming Too Nice Dis Got Too Much HYPE

  • Renaldi Saputra

    but, dude, we should give this game a support so that Re:Digitize Decode and Cyber Sleuth can get localized

    this is a new hope for digimon game, regardless how good/bad it is

    we must show that the fanbase is still strong

  • OverlordZetta

    I think the idea is they’re bringing all star Digimon together.

    The phrase existed long before PSASBR.

  • Charlie

    Digimon bewbs?
