Bandai Namco Entertainment has released the first Digimon Survive trailer, teasing what’s to come in the survival strategy RPG where your choices in conversation will redirect the story as it unfolds and how your Digimon will evolve in battle.
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.
With characters designed by Uichi Ukumo and music from I Am Setsuna and Lost Sphear composer Tomoki Miyoshi, you will be faced with difficult decisions and deadly battles as you fight your way back home.
The choices that you make will not only impact how your Digimon will evolve, but the final ending that you will eventually reach.
Digimon Survive will release for Nintendo Switch in Europe, North America and Japan in 2019.
