“Sorry to keep you waiting for updates on Digimon Survive. But today I would like to provide you with this exciting news!” explains Digimon Survive producer Kazumasa Habu. “The release date of Digimon Survive has finally been fixed for July 29th 2022! The Digimon Survive team is planning to deliver more exciting news to you in all forms. Please look forward to it and stay tuned. We are almost there!
In the upcoming “hybrid visual novel and tactical RPG,” you play as Takuma Momozuka – a second-year middle school student that becomes lost in a parallel world while on a school camping trip.
Soon having the chance to team up with Agumon, they must work together to survive against the ferocious creatures that infest the parallel world as Takuma works out how to return to his own world.
The game, which will have around 100 Digimon species and celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Digimon anime, will see Digimon evolve when their Digivolve requirements have been fulfilled.
This will see them consume EP (Energy Points), and, once their EP runs out, they will devolve back to their original form. And, their EP can be restored whenever they attack enemies or talk to their partner in battle.
Digimon Survive will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 29th July 2022.
