Bandai Namco has released information and screenshots of new characters Jimmy Ken and K, and the online battles mode in the upcoming Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory.

Get the details below.

Jimmy Ken and K

Hackers in the Digital World are divided into groups with different objectives. Some of them will cooperate, other ones will fight against each other in order to destroy the dimensional barriers and invade the real world. For example, the largest hacker group named “Zaxon” will strongly fight to protect the Digital World.

But one member, Jimmy Ken, is unsatisfied with the management of the group so he decided to create his own group called “Demons.” An active member of an indie band, this rock-and-roll hacker uses the Digimon Boltmon.

Confusion reigns in the Digital World especially with this mysterious hacker named K who wants to chase the criminal who is hunting for your account. K is a mysterious figure who offers the player their help throughout the game and uses the Digimon SkullSatamon. K is so veiled in mystery that we don’t know his or her true purpose.
