There is a nostalgia factor, but they will also try to attract kids (it's likely one of the main factors).Was this ever confirmed or is that just everyone's speculation? For me, all signs point to this being purely a nostalgia grab project. No kids are going to care who these characters are. If it were really Digimon for a new audience, they'd have no issue with going the Tokusatsu/Precure route with new characters every season. Like, is there even a toy line?
In the case of kids, it wouldn't be different that they use Adventure characters or new characters. So, Adventure 2020 isn't so different from a first season in a Tokusatsu or Precure route.
If I'm not mistaken, most anime toy lines for kids are released after the anime started.That's a fair point, but with most other kids' franchises, like Tokusatsu/Precure/Pokemon, we still have (role-play) toys for kids and the "adult" versions of toys that are online exclusives. The fact that there doesn't seem to be any toy line is rather disconcerting. Stickers, jigsaw puzzles and other things don't really seem like something for a core demographic.
So, maybe it is too soon to say it won't be toys for kids.
PS: One question, how much a Digivice V-Pet cost in Japan in 1999?
