With the Rise of Cyberspace Comes a New Generation of Hackers that Use Digimon
Near future Japan. Because of technology that makes it possible to visually and sensibly access the Internet, cyberspace has become another everyday world among people.
Cyberspace was protected by strong security. However, as cyberspace became more inseparable from people’s daily lives, the crimes that occur there were also increasing.
Among them are hackers who use special virus programs and cause serious damage to the cyber world. The virus programs have artificial intelligence, absorb all information, and have the ability to perform a great variety of evolutions based on their surroundings.
Those special virus programs used by hackers are called “Digital Monsters.”
A girl who is a member of the hacker team “Hudíe.” She lost her parents in a traffic accident several years ago, and is living with her older brother. She is extremely shy, and shuts herself inside the V.I.P. Room “Erika’s Room” within the “Net Cafe Hudíe,” which is the hacker team’s base. As the result of a head injury from the traffic accident, a special server within the EDEN network was linked with her brain, and does processing to disperse brain functions and suppress the load. Since the EDEN server and her brain are always linked, she possesses genius hacking abilities.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2017 in Japan, and in early 2018 in North America and Europe.
