Thread: Digimon Survive from Thanksgiving Stream, Plus a Digimon Story Tidbit

  1. #1

    Digimon Survive from Thanksgiving Stream, Plus a Digimon Story Tidbit

    Thought splitting this into it's own thread now that we have more information wouldn't be a bad idea.



    We got some decent information for Digimon Survive from Digimon Thanksgiving, so let's go over what we have.


    So first up, we have the debut trailer for Digimon Survive.

    It features a little bit of everything. We see some of the scenery, and a handful of gameplay scenes.

    We also get a preview of what is apparently the games theme song, which has a very soft and beautiful flow to it.






    A slightly extended look at the games battle system.

    It looks to be a relatively standard strategy RPG (perhaps saving some surprises for later.)

    One small surprise is certainly seeing Agumon evolve straight to MetalGreymon.





    We also got a look at the drama scenes. These play out roughly akin to a visual novel, but you can also look around the environment looking for items and information. Choices made here will affect not only the games story, but even who your Digimon can evolve into.

    We also get introduced to Saki and her partner, a Floramon, in the drama scene video.


    From the trailer above, a few of the other characters...

    First we have Minoru, who has popped up in early Survive promotion. Then in an image with Saki is Shuji. Last up is Aoi.


    As we previously found out, one of the key elements of the game is the choices you make. There will be multiple endings, and evolutions will change based on these choices, and they also tease that characters may die based on these choices also.

    According to producer Habu, the evolution system in the game is based on him wanting to incorporate Digimon Adventure's 'evolution via character development.'



    Digimon evolve by not only conditions from the overall game, but consuming energy during battle. You gain energy by attacking enemies, and also talking to your Digimon during the battle (talking can also extend evolution time.)


    Story is a big emphasis in Digimon Survive, as opposed to 'collecting Digimon.' There will be about 100 playable Digimon in the game (this is purely playable Digimon, it does not include side characters or enemies.)



    Looking at what we have, on top of Habu's comments, it appears a large amount of inspiration from Survive was taken from Digimon Adventure in general.

    The game adds some interesting elements which will hopefully make it interesting to play.


    In addition, Habu does state a new Digimon Story game is also in development, confirming that Survive is an entirely separate project.



    Thanks to Gematsu for various details.


    The Digimon Thanksgiving thread has some of the game details from the Digimon Thanksgiving stream also, but all that information should be in this thread also.

    This is the most beautiful visuals plus gameplay I've seen in a while. Appealing, interesting and somewhat obscure it's just what I expected from a Digimon game right now. The gameplay and plotline seem quite alluring, so I'm totally in. To be honest, I'm not bothered at all by the 100 playable Digimon, as long as there are interesting choices and hey, this game is purely experimental after all and we have a brand-new Digimon Story game right next to the corner with a presumably huge amount of them (the one involving the Olympos XII I assume). As always Habu is hands down the best that has happened to Digimon in recent times, so my hopes are up high. Looking forward to know more and patiently waiting for an official International release date (if not I'll probably get the PS4 Japanese version).

    The kana definitely says Shuuji if that helps.

    The trailer with the song is just so beautiful and kinda sad. It makes me wonder just what this story is going to deliver. I think the atmosphere is a great choice and the music really compliments all of images we’ve seen so far in terms of tone.

    I'm really liking the look of this game. I'm a huge fan of strategy RPGs and the whole decision based story is also right up my alley.

    The character designs all look varied and interesting. The music is also sounding really good.

    Just overall this is shaping up to be a really appealing game to me and the new Story game will have to step up in order to match this.

    Yeah, I've removed the mention of Jouji.

    I wasn't sure, as I had translated it as Shuji, someone else told me that was wrong and it was Jouji.

    I've had a few different people tell me in the last minute it's definitely Shuji.

    It looks really clean. Not sure if I'm sold on it yet. Kinda looks like an indie game

    I had a feeling the idea of survive was inspired heavily from digimon adventure ever since they mentioned it would start with Takuma at summer camp. I can't wait to see just how inspired by adventure he was and how he's going to twist the inspiration around. And man, that song. I can't express my love for it. Very final fantasy-escue. I've literally been listening to it on repeat ever since this morning. I hope we get the full version soon. The gameplay looks great too. I love fire emblem and devil survivor so everything about this game is right up my alley.

    Overall it looks great, sounds great, and I'm sure it'll play great.

    Bless Habu sama. Where would we be without you?

    Characters may die depends on those choices?! Oh my god, Digimon sure is way on Grimdark path from Hacker's Memory and Cyber Sleuth.

    Now I better save money for this. Those sprites look amazing.

    This looks like a breakthrough for the franchise, honestly. Delivering gameplay and mechanics that is reminiscent of what was great about the anime series and serving the best visuals of all digimon video games so far. I cannot even describe how happy I feel about this.

    Is anyone else getting serious Shin Megami Tensei vibes? It keeps feeling like they're bringing over the mechanics from those games (or at least the few games I've played of it) and modifying/adding them to Digimon as a whole. Rather darker-and-edgier, almost. Not that its a particularly bad thing. Just... not what I remember and am nostalgic for. (Yes, I'm still going to get this game if it makes it to the US.)
