HOLY SHIT!!! O_O MEGA?!!! Like, I knew we’d get Wargreymon and Metalgarurumon, BUT EVERYONE ELSE?!! HOUOUMON?!! HERCULESKABUTERIMON?!! ROSEMON?!!!
BAMCO, BRING THIS GAME OVER TO THE U.S. THIS INSTANT!! PLEASE!!! Seeing everyone else’s Digimon reach Mega has been my dream ever since I first finished watching Digimon Adventure all those years ago. ;_;
There are two Digimon games for the PSP, namely: Digimon World Re:Digitize and Digimon Adventure RPG
I’m making these text posts for those peeps out there who want to play these games but don’t know how. This is just substitute while we don’t have an English release for the games. If ever the games get out of Japan please buy them. Support the digimon franchise!
Digimon Adventure (the PSP game) will cover all of the anime as well as the movie “Our War Game”. In addition, it will also include original content, referred to as “Sub-episode quests”.
The game can be split into three sections—adventure, battle, and raising. Not much is known about the “raising” aspect yet, but some specifics about the adventure and battle sections have been released.
Between each episode, you can choose which episode you want to see (rather than where you want to go) from a menu. Then you select the three children and Digimon you want on your team.
For the most part, it seems like every episode will take place in a single field as you explore the area and experience the events in the anime. Digimon appear on the field similar to how they do in Digimon World; however, the battle seems to be popular RPG fare, with a turn gauge (similar to those seen in the Ateliergames or even in Final Fantasy X) and action choices such as Attack, Guard, Item, and Escape. It also looks like you can evolve in battle to use stronger attacks.
Finally, in addition to Kuwagamon and Shellmon, other enemy Digimon that have been announced are Seadramon, Andromon, and Mushmon.
Food for thought:
1. It’s a shame and no surprise, but it doesn’t look like they’ll be using the movie art anywhere in the game.
2. It looks like the “episode” titles in the game are exactly the same as the anime episode titles.
3. So far, all of the characters have retained their original voices.
Toshiko Fujita (Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibōken’s Dai, Chihayafuru’s Taeko) is once again playing Taichi Yagami (Tai Kamiya in the English dub), and Chika Sakamoto (Fushigi Yugi’s Nuriko, Heartcatch Precure!’s Kaoruko) also returns as Agumon. The director of the original anime, Hiroyuki Kakudō revealed on the game’s website that the staff has gathered together not only all of the original voice actors for the eight children and their eight corresponding Digimon, but that they have also assembled the voices of characters who were in more than one episode.
Namco Bandai Games previously posted a teaser for the game in September. The game is the third phase of the 15th anniversary celebration of the Digimon franchise. Namco Bandai Games plans to release the game in 2013.
Sort of a prototype to a promo of sorts I was thinking of doing involving Past Dan and Betamon hosting segments of the Adventure RPG, while Modern Dan is among the crew stuck inside the DigiDungeon with Gankuumon.
I have been watching gameplay videos of the new Digimon Adventure RPG for the past three days now. I’m really grateful that I know enough Japanese to read and understand what’s happening. I’m almost to the part where this happens.
So I started playing the new Digimon Adventure RPG this past weekend.
It was a nice reward for me for making it through my first full week of teaching since winter break. Somewhat unrelated, but one of my first thoughts was: Wow the menus and some of the game mechanics kinda remind me of Tales of Xillia. And then I remembered Bandai Namco.
Ahaha it’s funny because they own my soul. Or at least my wallet.
I like the game! I think it’s everything the fandom could have asked for and more so far. I’m pretty flabbergasted.
You play by choosing specific episodes from the anime. As far as I can tell they go in order, but I get the feeling there may be chances to skip some of them or mix them up as time goes along (?). There are also extra sub-episodes of stuff that wasn’t in the show. I’ve only played one of them so far, and it was about Gomamon wanting to get a present for his marching fishes. So he has the gang help him look for shells or food or something on the beach (…I was too lazy to look up the word of what it actually was in my dictionary ;=_=) where Taichi and Yamato start a competition. Then when it’s over, they get into an argument over size vs. quantity (…heh) and it’s up to Jou to break it up by deciding who won. You can choose to agree with Taichi (making Taichi like Jou more I’m assuming), Yamato (making Yamato like Jou more I’m assuming), or call it a draw (making Takeru like Jou more - this was what I picked). There are all sorts of choices like this, for example, in 蒼き狼! ガルルモン you can also choose whether or not Yamato apologizes to Taichi after he gets on Taichi’s case about teasing Gabumon. Depending on how strong your characters’ bonds are their Digimon can make dual attacks. It’s a pretty awesome touch. Yamato and Takeru seem to start off with a stronger bond than the other characters so theirs is the only one I’ve seen so far.
