on September 14, 2016 9:01 PM

Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that Digimon World: Next Order is coming west, with a caveat. The game was originally released in Japan for PS Vita, but in the west it’s making the jump to PS4, and skipping the Vita altogether.

The game will launch in early 2017, and it will be released in North America exclusively in digital form.

Below you can read an official description if you’re unfamiliar with the title:

Digimon World: Next Order begins when players are sucked into the Digital World to discover it is under siege by Machinedramons. Rescued by two Digimon from impending doom, players must forge forward with their Digimon partners and journey through the Digital World to discover the origins of the Machinedramon scourge and find a way back to the real world. Along the way, players will nurture and train their Digimon partners for battle as they progress through the game. Digimon World: Next Order contains over 200 Digimon for players to meet, recruit, and interact with throughout their adventure. Digimon World: Next Order will also give players the choice of playing as either a male or female protagonist and enable players to explore the Digital World with two Digimon partners for the first time in franchise history. The key to finding a way back to the real world and stopping the Digital World from total destruction at the hands of Machinedramons will lie in building strong bonds and providing effective training for each Digimon.

Below you can also enjoy the announcement trailer, the key and box art, and the very first 1080p screenshots.
