The anticipated survival strategy RPG Digimon Survive recently received its opening movie at the Future of Digimon panel at Anime Expo 2019. This movie sets up the story for the game that’ll contain branching narratives leading to different digivolutions and endings.
The story takes place during an extracurricular camp over the summer. The main character, Takuma, and his two high school friends, Aoi and Minoru, go to an infamous local shrine, to learn more about its mysterious legend: the tale of Kemonogami.
While exploring the shrine, Takuma meets a pink monster – Koromon. Before they can get acquainted, piercing screams fill the air. Rushing towards them, Takuma and Koromon come across a group of monsters attacking Takuma’s classmates. As Takuma tries to save them, Koromon transforms into Agumon; and together they manage to scare the monsters away. The immediate threat gone, they soon realise they are far from safe, finding themselves transported to a strange new world.
Digimon Survive will be released worldwide in 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. For more information, visit the official website.
