Digimon All-Star Rumble

14 minutes of footage from Bandai Namco and Prope’s newly announced Digimon All-Star Rumble for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 have surfaced.

The first video shows Agumon versus Gabumon. The second video shows Biyomon versus Gabumon, followed by Agumon versus Gomamon. Gomamon is newly confirmed, making for nine known base Digimon of the planned 12.

Watch the footage below. The game is due out on November 11 in North America and this fall in Europe.

  • Blackikun

    Just to many Adventure Digimon…

  • new_tradition

    I still have reservations, but the game looks fun, and it’s pretty enough.

    Just wish there was a larger roster, but that doesn’t seem like it’ll get changed. Hopefully the story mode will be meaty >3>

  • Hinataharem

    Gomamon goes to Plesiomon in this game. Neat.

    • Budgiecat

      why are you making that face…

      • Hinataharem

        Because this news fills me with happiness

        • Zackasaur

          “Happiness.”

        • Budgiecat

          But it looks like something else is filling you…

          • Hinataharem

            Ahhhh not this time

  • fyi1191

    Please be successful. We want Cyber Sleuth and Re:code over!

    • Pyrotek85

      I was hoping we’d get Digimon Adventure, though with the PSP dead in the West…

      • Budgiecat

        still coulda been a digital sale for PSP/Vita

  • DarthBrian

    Yup. I am buying this.

  • Elvick

    Biyomon should be able to fly a little. they should have had it so she flys low constantly instead of walking. :(

    Looks like a lot of fun.

    • Zackasaur

      You have my Digimon Rumble Arena 2!!!

      I almost forgot, and then Bruno reminded me. xD

  • http://www.truegamerrevolution.com.br/ Bruno Magalhães

    Looks fun. I’m looking forward for it since Rumble Arena, for Playstation One. I don’t had the oportunity to play Rumble Arena 2. ToT

    • Zackasaur

      I have Rumble Arena 2 and used to have a blast playing it. c:

      But I traded it… To Elvick. XD

  • http://wholesomegamer.com/ G.

    Ugh. It looks cool and all, but this just came out of nowhere. Why can’t we get some sort of confirmation on Digimon games that people have actually been demanding? ;(

    • Zackasaur

      This is a test… They’re going to see how many of us buy this to see if those wordier games are worth localising.

      So we’d better buy this in a feeding frenzy. >_>

      But we should also keep up the petitions, Twitter harassment, etc.!

      • Budgiecat

        pretty exorbitant test…O_o

        • Zackasaur

          That is true, but it’s not unusual. Companies look for ways to gauge interest and this is a way.

          It’s similar to how Aksys were unsure about the Senran Kagura IP in the US, so they did a discounted digital-only release to test the waters. It took off, so they’re treating the IP more properly now.

          Bandai Namco hear the interest in Digimon games for the west, and they know that they’re making some pretty damn good ones these days. But they can’t tell how many people are making the noise, so they’re using this as a test release to see just how large interest in the IP is.

          • Budgiecat

            but this is a whole different game

            it just seems absurd because the cost of making a whole new game is more than localizing an existing one..

            • Mnoz

              Did you Saban’s logo at the end of the trailer ? Those are the guys dubbing Xros Wars (fusion), they probably financed the game to have something to help them promote the show and sell more digimon merchandise to kids.

            • Zackasaur

              It’s not that this game only exists to test the market. They saw a potential for profit in the game, period. However, a bonus to that is that they can release this at limited risk and use it to gauge interest in the franchise as a whole and in more expensive localisation projects.

              Saban’s logo even shows up at the end of the trailer, suggesting that there is some partnership going on here.

      • Elle

        But I don’t want to buy something I don’t want AT ALL to get something else.

        • Zackasaur

          I’m not defending the practice. I’m just pointing it out.

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Probably just because this is a much lower-risk game for Namco-Bandai to localize. Also, a fighting game appeals to a broader audience than an RPG. Kids especially would rather beat up things in a game than wander around, talking to people, and selecting attacks from a menu.

      So y’know, try not to be too bummed out. Just remember the “it looks cool and all” part of your assessment and try not to look at this in relation to other Digimon games.

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    Looks nice! I like how slow the characters are, and how large the arenas are. The more deliberately paced action seems tailor made to keep 4-player matches from devolving into COMPLETELY random chaos ( ^ – ^ )

    That has always been a problem with these fully 3D Power Stone-type fighters in the past. So I bet this will manage to avoid that problem when it comes out.

    Looks fun! I’m onboard if the price is right!

  • Digidyne017

    wish this could go on the vita…

  • Ta’i Ngatokorua

    Please bring this to PS4 :O I don’t want to dig out my PS3 :/

    • Budgiecat

      but Godzilla is coming out for PS3
      As well as Xillia 2
      Zestiria
      Persona 5
      Shining Resonance
      Ar nosurge
      Super Robot Wars Original Generations Saga: the Lord of Elemental Final – Coffin of the End

      • fyi1191

        And PS4 has…what again?

    • Zackasaur

      You should keep your PS3 set up next to your PS4. :3

      We’re in that akward generational transitional stage where a lot of mid-budget and Japanese games are still hitting the PS3, while more and more of the industry moves to PS4.

      I’m probably buying PS4 games 3x more than I’m buying PS3 games, but I’m still buying for PS3 and will keep it next to my PS4 for a looong time.

      My top shelf is a PS3, a PS4, and a Wii U~

  • Ping92

    Looks fun. It would be better to show 4 digimons fight it out

  • PrinceHeir

    Looks fun, does it seem like it’s slowing down a bit?

    And it’s only two players on screen, i wonder what will happen if it’s 4 player now O__O

    • Renaldi Saputra

      It will be more fun

  • Renaldi Saputra

    Guys read this
    http://www.shonengamez.com/2014/08/03/namco-bandai-aware-digimon-world-redigitize-petition/

    It said that Bamco was nervous back then when they’re trying to announce all-star rumble

    Anw we still have a hope for seeing re:digitize decode getting localized
    Keep all your hopes up

  • Nitraion

    haha combo system looks satisfaying and a dick move at same time

  • Learii

    wait there no first or 2nd or 3rd evolution? they just skip to last evolution =(

    • Renaldi Saputra

      it’s like in the tamers battle evolution (rumble arena 1) mixing with tamers battle spirit series

  • Renaldi Saputra

    there’s also an interview video
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2Q1Qrc7VpU

  • Pyrotek85

    It sounds crazy yet plausible.

  • Elvick

    People seem relatively excited for it regardless. I think it’ll do okay. Unless it’s a $60 title, because the value proposition at that price seems very low. But it still seems like it could be a PSN/XBLA game.

    Whether Bamco take “okay” into context or not is another story. (But I’d think if Tales of Hearts R and SAO HF do good or better, that’ll raise Cyber Sleuths chances)

  • Guest

    I doubt that’s their plan.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    But, still, I saw a big hype for this game, too
    Just look the video trailer uploaded by Bamco Europe even got more than 100k views just in one day

  • OverlordZetta

    I would be shocked if it went less than $40. I’m expecting $50-$60.

  • Mnoz
  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    MAN!

    I expected this to be a $20 download for normal publishers, a $30 download for the same publisher that thinks you should pay for more fuel for your aircraft in their “freemium” Ace Combat game :P

    But $40 is even more than I figured they would go. That’s eh… there better be some more content to this to justify that price.

  • Zackasaur

    The plan is definitely to use this to test western interest in Digimon games.

    If this sells well enough, Cyber Sleuth is basically assured.

  • Guest

    They not holding it hostage; that’s just silly.

  • Wolf Star

    Don’t forget Hyperdimention Neptunia VII that’s a Ps4 game as well
