Thread: More Digimon Survive Story Information

  1. #1

    More Digimon Survive Story Information

    A bit of an update...

    Image Thumbnail (custom)

    Now that Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition is out, we're hopefully at the beginning of getting more and more Survive details.


    Today we have some story updates that ties into both recent info from Famitsu, along with the intro animation.



    The intro animation for anyone who wants to re-watch it before reading.



    The story info expands and clarifies various details that we've gotten going back a year or so, but has an especially heavy focus on the more recent details:
    The group in the intro are part of a multi-school extracurricular camping trip that studies history. Takuma Momozuka's group consists of his friend Minoru Hyuuga and Aoi Shibuya, who is one year older than the boys and from a different school.

    They decide their project will be on "Kemonogami" (Beast God), which is a local-based-only religion, and visit the shrine that holds its rituals. The legend of the Beast God goes as far as the Kamakura period (as early as 1185). A powerful clan that lived back in those days borrowed the power of a god, who lived in the mountains and was similar in appearance to a beast, to gain wealth, which earned its wrath so the clan was annihilated.

    The locals were so afraid of the Beast God's anger that they gave their children to it as a ritual peace offering. Although this all happened long ago, whenever children enter the shrine that was used for this ritual even to this day, it's said that those children are spirited away.

    On the morning of the 2nd day at their camp, the phenomenon approaches and Takuma, Minoru, and Aoi end up wandering into the world of this fading legend...

    Nothing super different than what we've seen previously, but it does expand on various things and also puts a few pieces together.

    The Gamer article that gives the expanded story details also reiterates things we knew about the battle system (using 'energy' to evolve, evolving giving you advantages in fighting, etc.)


    Thanks to onkei for the translation.

    Oh I thought it's random wild Digimon took children for Digital adventure but I seriously doubt it's a digimon that destroyed the whole clan but it could be Virus type who loves to manipulate but the news said it got angry for unknown reasons maybe it's Data type. Or so... Yggdrasil? Or "Beast god" probably was long gone.

    Yup nothing comes to my mind. But that's pretty dark legend. I think Survive's legend story will be just nothing but tiny incident in the past which I don't want that... Suspiciously that legend have so many theories I can think up of. Glad Survive news are still continuing instead of waiting for every month. It pleases me well

    Itís still so weird how they retconned Digimon from being programs invented by humans accidentally in the 1980s and 1990s into literal ancient gods and demons. Whereas years ago Lucemon was merely data on Lucifer that came to life, now heís literally Satan.

    It definitely feels a bit different, connecting Digimon to the worship of Kami.

    I wonder how deep this is going to go... :O

    I hope the secondary charactersí partners, like obscure Labramon and classic Falcomon, will be other forgotten Digimon from the same era: Leormon, Commandramon, Kokabuterimon, Swimmon, Bearmon , Koemon, Kotemon and the like.

    I wonder how many new Digimons this game will introduce. Will it be usual 4 (Rookie to Mega), or maybe more? Or maybe none?
    Speedy like wind, gradually like forest, aggressively like fire, immovably like mountain, secretly like shadow, actively like thunder.

    Huh I think Aoi being from a different school is new info. Cool they were able to make friends with someone like that. Or maybe it's just me who can't lol. I guess it explains about Saki, she's from a different school too I guess.

    HM only added one new Mon.

    Habu has said before though he likes making new dudes for new games, so we'll get at least one I assume.

    Yeah, Hudiemon.

    Most likely that Kemonogami will become a Kemonogamimon. So maybe that 100 available Digimons won't be that sad if he will add some new dudes and evolution lines.

    Just looked, yes they are new screenshots.

    So new Digimon confirmed:

    Monzaemon
    Deramon (Floramon? prob not since it's an enemy mon)
    Dobermon (Assuming this is Labramon's Champion form based on the context of the image)

    That brings us to 21 Digimon
