Digimon wants to overshadow Pokémon
Don’t get me wrong, the Digimon license hadn’t completely disappeared from the radar in recent years, quite the contrary. ! Moreover, it has even managed to maintain a solid base of players since the series Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth has passed to a good number of copies ! Casually, Digimon Survive had a little pressure on the shoulders at the time of its development, especially since it was impacted by the global health crisis forcing it to undergo a series of postponements which ended today, and tomorrow on PC.
By sporting a unique formula that mixes visual novel, tinged with “anime” style graphics, and tactical role-playing game, Digimon Survive intends to challenge the hegemony that has been built around the Pokémon license., and this false air of a game halfway between Persona and Final Fantasy Tactics could well be a lifesaver for him. For its launch, this new production stamped Digimon has decided to highlight the heroes of this episode, before their daily life changes since they will be sucked into a strange world where they will meet digital monsters. Each of them will bond with a hero and take part in tactical combat which we quickly see in the trailer.
A formula never seen before for the license!
With this new formula which offers us an experience never seen before within the license, Digimon Survive wants to surprise its audience and convince a new one. Beyond relying on tactical combat and a strong role-playing component, it’s a much more mature story that innervates the whole adventure. This dark side is expressed in particular by the survival dimension of the title and the fact that your choices throughout the plot will have serious consequences and may lead to very difficult decisions to be made.
It will therefore be necessary to weigh the pros and cons before opting for a choice, the future of the various teenagers in the gang depends on it! If your actions have repercussions, the purpose of the various turn-based tactical clashes on a 2D board is also not to be taken lightly, but many species of Digimon — a hundred, more precisely — available to you to overcome the dangers and hope to return to the real world. Digimon Survive is therefore already available on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and will be tomorrow on computer through Steam.
