Digimon Survive is scheduled to release on July 29, 2022 (July 28 in Japan and Asia) for the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
Kazumasa Habu, the producer for the upcoming game, shared the good news during a short producer update video. The game was originally supposed to release back in 2019, but a series of unfortunate incidents led to another, topped off by the pandemic that basically threw a wrench in everything.
Digimon Survive Overview
You can see a short overview of Digimon Survive:
We had no idea that ordinary life is so fragile and fleeting.
Digimon Survive is a text adventure and tactical battle game, featuring the dramatic adventures of the teenage protagonists and their monster allies, as well as tactical battles in which allied monsters are controlled in their clashes against enemy monsters.
Explore the story about the “bond” created between the teenagers and monsters that is tested amidst danger
Lost on a school camping trip, a group of teenagers are transported to an alternate dimension, and now face a different world where mysterious creatures and monsters are aplenty. The teenagers are forced to fight to survive terrible peril, while allying with some of the monsters they encounter.
Navigate the changes in the story that is dependent on the choices made, and determines the monsters’ evolution
The choices the players are forced to make throughout the game will impact both the evolution of their monster allies and the final ending of the story. Choices may appear in the middle of conversations, where each option will change the path of the story and affect the evolution of the player’s monster partner, Agumon.
Engage in battles that make full use of the monsters’ skills and evolution
Tactical battles with hostile monsters are fought in 2D, in classic SRPG style, using graphics with enhanced spatial rendering capabilities to portray the mystery and drama of the parallel world. These will occur occasionally in the story, where players can place up to 10 monster allies on the field to fight.
Monsters use up SP when they carry out their skills or evolve to the next stage. By utilising the abilities of each monster, players can devise a strategy and fight while taking into consideration the terrain and environment they are in.
DLC-limited additional monster, Guilmon, can be acquired as an early purchase bonus!
Players will be able to acquire the DLC-limited additional monster, Guilmon, as the early purchase bonus for the game. Guilmon can evolve into Gallantmon by training and will be a reliable ally during battles.
