Digimon Survive review

System: Switch
Release Date: July 29, 2022
Developer: Hyde
Publisher: Bandai Namco

From the Digimon tri. films to the dark Cyber Sleuth games, Digimon has seen renewed life in recent years with its new focus and emphasis on more somber tones and older, relatable characters. It’s no surprise then that Digimon Survive would once again continue this new vision and provide what is interestingly its most thought-provoking entry yet. The game features a deep and rich story, and it’s all implemented within a tactical RPG that’s rewarding, engaging, and worthy of the Digimon name.

Nintendo Everything was at this year’s Tokyo Game Show! We had a low-key presence at the event, but we did manage to try out several upcoming Japanese 3DS titles. Look for our impressions in the coming days.

Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters Cyber Arena is a free-to-play preview version of the upcoming 3DS game Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters. It just came out yesterday – September 21 – on the Japanese eShop. The full product will be released December 1 in Japan, though we’ve given the new download a test drive.

If you’re a Digimon veteran, don’t expect past Digimon creatures like Agumon to appear here. This adventure takes place in a brand-new universe where current trending technology like smartphones and augmented reality are prevalent. The new Digimon are called Appli Monsters, or Appmon in short, and are based on smartphone apps. As of the Cyber Arena version, there are a total of 147 Appmon available.

Namco Bandai will announce a new Digimon game in the February 2014 issue of V-Jump, which releases on December 21. That’s according to a new teaser posted on the series’ portal site. Also on December 21, Namco Bandai is expected to show a debut trailer at its Jump Festa 2014 booth.


Digimon fans have been pushing Namco Bandai to localize Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode, the series’ latest video game entry. One particular petition has already been “signed” by over 16,000 people.

If nothing else, Namco Bandai is aware of the support fans have shown towards Decode thus far. UK PR executive Joseph Walsh wrote on Twitter earlier this week:

Namco Bandai would probably be the only hope for a localization of Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode at this point. XSEED, a company that tends to localize niche Japanese titles, previously said the company would be unlikely to pick up Decode for a North American release.
