Bandai Namco’s long-delayed strategy RPG Digimon Survive finally has a release date for Japan. According to the latest issue of V-Jump, it releases on July 28th for Nintendo Switch and PS4. It’s slated to release worldwide in 2022 for the above platforms along with Xbox One and PC but how close this will be to the Japanese launch is unknown.
Announced in 2018, Digimon Survive is about Takuma Momozuka and his friends who visit a local temple to learn more about the Beast Gods. Eventually, they come across Koromon and other Digimon before being whisked away to an alternate world. Along with standard Digimon mechanics like digivolution, there are also different choices to be made and branching paths to discover (some leading to various character deaths).
With 12 chapters and three different routes, Digimon Survive is expected to offer 80 to 100 hours of gameplay. For more details on the various characters, head here. Stay tuned for more information and gameplay in the coming months.
