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 utilizing the abilities of each monster, players can devise a strategy and fight while taking into consideration the terrain and environment they are in.
