Digimon Survive delayed to 2020

Opening movie shown at Anime Expo 2019 panel.

Digimon Survive

Bandai Namco has delayed Digimon Survive from its previously planned 2019 release window to 2020, the company announced during the “Future of Digimon” panel at Anime Expo 2019. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

An opening movie over five minutes in length was shown during the panel, but has yet to be uploaded online.

Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Digimon anime, Digimon Survive presents a brand-new adventure set in a mysterious world with characters designed by Uichi Ukumo, and music by the much-acclaimed Tomoki Miyoshi.

Digimon Survive sees a brand-new group of teenagers, led by Takuma Momozuka, get lost on a school camping trip, finding them transported to a strange new world of monsters and danger.

As they fight their way back home through an animated world of difficult decisions and deadly battles, players’ choices throughout the game will impact the evolution of their monster allies, and the final ending. Battles in the game are fought in 2D, in a more classic strategy RPG style.
