Today Bandai Namco Entertainment reached out with a press release with a few tidbits of official information and a batch of screenshots of the upcoming JRPG Digimon Survive.
We learn that the story starts during a summer camp. The main character Takuma and his classmates Minoru and Aoi visit a famous local temple to investigate a mysterious legend, the story of Kemonogam.
As they explore the temple they encounter a monster, Koromon. Suddenly, they hear screaming. After running to the scene, Takuma and Koromon find a group of monsters that are attacking the boy’s classmates. Koromon turns into Agumon, and together, the two chase the monsters away. Despite the momentary respite, they discover that they aren’t yet safe, as they have been transported into a mysterious world.
Aoi Shibuya is a serious and calm girl, and she always keeps her cool. She is the class representative, and she is used to handling unreasonable requests from her classmates. She is also responsible for the food and the camp.
Minoru Hyuga is an optimistic boy, able to compound the group thanks to his friendly personality. Unfortunately, his carelessness often puts him in trouble.
Labromon looks like a dog and she goes straight to the point when she speaks. She and Aoi will support each other during the adventure.
Falcomon is a mountain monster with a strong and stern personality. While he supports Minoru, at times he can be even goofier than the boy.
Digimon Survive will release in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
