    Well, V-Jump is leaking for other places, so I wouldn't be surprised if we got a little bit more context for these two being in the anniversary V-Pet really soon.

    I like how BlitzGreymon and CresGarurumon invert the traditional design paradigm for WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon subspecies in that Blitz shoots and Cres slashes. Usually its the opposite.

    i.e., KaiserGreymon and VictoryGreymon have a BFS. MagnaGarurumon and Z'dGarurumon have a BFG.

    I wonder if they have any unique evolution requirements outside of the usual MetalGreymon / WereGarurumon base forms.

    Hmm, when I first saw it, I immediately thought it was supposed to be an evolution for Zubamon.

    But regardless, I really like these designs and would like to see them in the next Story/World game.

    There’s no way クーレス is just Cres- with that long vowel, but the digimon is clearly crescent-themed. Hmmm. Maybe it’s supposed to be like cool, as in ice attacks? But this Garurumon is less ice-themed than most. Perhaps it’s an onomatopœia, maybe meant to evoke garu?

    You mean the only other beast knight digimon, from a line that was based on the Garurumon line? Yeah, it crossed my notice.

    I briefly had the same thought, then wondered if maybe he was wielding him as a weapon, but his profile would probably say as much. If these two are going to jogress into Alter-S though, it explains the gold on Alter-B. Interesting that Blitz Greymon is a virus-type: clearly another inversion of the usual (the Garurumon is still a data), but I would have thought that Alter-S would be a holy version of Alter-B, but he probably won’t be if he’s a virus. As it is, though, while the Next Order profile describes Alter-B as an Alter-S that lost its mind, the Linkz one describes him as an Alter-S with black digitron added, which should make him stronger — an evolution, in which case it seems the arc of the Alter-S line is to start nasty and end completely demonic.

    It reminds me a lot more to AncientGarurumon tbh.

    Thank goodness its not a new appmon

    Quite happy with the design and the principle. At least its not some recolor with altered backstory (looking at you black wargreymon!)

    Btw have you guys heard of the rumour about V-Jump going to tease a new Story game? Hoping it would be for the switch :3

    Seems like a reverse of the original versions. Instead of a slash'em warrior, BlitzGreymon is heavy artillery. Instead of heavy artillery, CresGarurumon is a slash'em warrior.

    How would that even have worked? Well, I guess a palæontology app would hardly be more improbable than Cometmon. Alternatively they could both be themed after tactical war game apps or something. Yeah, in retrospect, it would have been nice, though it seems they had already committed to this Alter-S thing, and it’s a good shtick: as much as the franchise is overloaded with clones of the Greymon and Garurumon lines, including of Omegamon, there have been relatively few expansions of the main line itself, especially of anything touching Omegamon specifically, and in this era of level inflation I feel that it’s worth doing. I think a lot of us sense this intuitively, which is why we haven’t gotten any ‘not another Greymon’ reactions yet: this particular use is actually not horribly overdone. Also giving back-channel routes to the same evolution is pretty interesting — at least when that final thing is a, what, fourth-tier ultimate? That gives them plenty of room for cool, elaborate designs even if they are retracing their evolutionary steps. It also helps that on the level of individual design, they’re pretty innovative: this is perhaps the first time we’ve had a fully robotic, fully humanoid dragon man, and while we’ve had a couple of doggo knights, CresGarurumon is the first one that retains the classical hunched werewolf body frame. He’s like if Mercurymon became a knight.

    Still, I wish we were at a point where anniversary digimon could be drawn from other well-known ones. Who wouldn’t like some more Imperial Dramon or Dukemon modes, zeta hybrids, or a fusion for Shine Greymon and Mirage Gaogamon? Maybe someday.

    Word, down to the ‘warrior of light’ æsthetic. LOL, come to think of it, the whole fire spirit line was preoccupied with blasting and the light spirit line was slashers … until they got to the zeta hybrids, and then it reversed so they could ape War Greymon and Metal Garurumon. That was probably incidental rather than intentional though. How undialectical, pure ideology. This is deliberate and self-conscious which makes it better.

    Could be, but with the virus typing, I’m guessing not. I think we’re going to get a super-Omegamon formed from all eight ultimates.

    that true. but at the same time, it feel like they could still introduce these two in the series
