The Digimon franchise is among the most nostalgic series that are still going strong. In fact, the franchise has only expanded onto other forms of media throughout the decennia. Digimon video games muster a huge fanbase that looks forward to every installment.
Digimon Survive is the latest endeavor of BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment which has been in the brewer for a long time. If you are unfamiliar, Digimon Survive is a team-based tactical RPG that also incorporates strategic and role-playing elements to create a nostalgic Digimon experience.
Player choices impact the direction of the story, including Digimon’s Digivolution process. Various playthroughs can lead to diverse paths and Digivolutions. The game will include multiple endings depending on choices made by players.
Digimon Survive has suffered through a plethora of delays that left players awaiting the anticipated title for years. The development cycle went through a series of issues that caused a sequence of broken vows by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, leaving players disappointed with the franchise.
However, the shutters are closing down on further postponing. Digimon Survive finally has a release date revealed in its latest release trailer. However, as we reported in April, the release date for the game had been leaked a couple of months ago in a V-Jump issue, which was unveiled to be July 28, 2022.
Recently, a new release date trailer for the game has revealed Digimon Survive’s release date to be July 29, 2022, which is only a day off from the proposed date. The story features a completely new bunch of teens, directed by Takuma Momozuka, who lose their bearings on a school camping trip. They find themselves transported to a bizarre new world in isekai fashion, full of monsters and danger.
The trailer description cites the following, “When Takuma Momozuka finds himself lost on a school camping trip, he’ll be transported to a mysterious and dangerous world full of creatures called Digimon. On his journey, he’ll meet many companions, Digimon, and humans alike! Join Takuma as he searches for a way back home in this visual novel with turn-based battles.”
After half a decade of being in development, players will finally get to dive into the tactical RPG just a couple of months from now. The community has loved the trailer and provided a positive reception in comments and on forums.
