Prominent Japanese reporter Ryokutya2089 says that Digimon World: Next Order International Edition will be coming to the Nintendo Switch on February 22nd, 2023.
The game was originally released for the PS4 in 2017. Here is a trailer for the original game:
The game is a revival of the Digimon World series which sees a Digimon Tamer raise various Digimon and train them to fight in combat in real-time battles. Here is an overview of the game from the PlayStation store:
“Welcome back to the Digital World! An all-new adventure & story awaits! The Digital world is in despair. Machinedramons are running rampant and causing utter chaos… the Digital World needs your help! Recruit faithful Digimon companions and meet friends along the way to help you on this epic journey.”
- Over 200 Digimon from the animated series!
- For the first time ever in the series, explore the Digital World with not one, but TWO Digimon partners!
- Your success in battles & the growth 0of your partners is totally dependent on you: raise, train, feed, etc. in real-time to form strong bonds with your companions. Every interaction & activity matters!
- Evolved AI Battle System: strong bonds with your partners is key – train your Digimon to excel in AI battles on their own. Cooperation & synchronization between your partners and their feelings will increase your chances of winning. Shout commands and cheer them to victory!
According to Ryokutya2089, this new port of the game will include a new beginner mode and a ‘run function’. These seem like quality-of-life features to make the game a little less frustrating for newcomers.
This will be the latest Digimon game following the visual novel Digimon Survive, which was released this summer. Digimon Survive while highly regarded overall, initially received review bombs for being a visual novel as opposed to a full RPG akin to the Digimon World games. With that in mind, perhaps those that couldn’t get into Survive will be more at home with Digimon World: Next Order.
Digimon World: Next Order International Edition for Nintendo Switch will release in Japan on February 22nd, 2023. It is currently not confirmed if or when the game will release in international markets.
