Update- Both are confirmed

They each have their own thread for the announcements:
Ghost Game
02


The original post is below.




We don't often post rumors or things we can't verify, but with DigiFes about to happen, a few things popping out as they often do wouldn't be a surprise.

While for the time these appear real, it's always worth mentioning they very well may not be.

02movie_july30_2021.jpg


First up is a poster for a new movie, showing a boy, a new Digimon hatching from a digitama, and the boy was apparently doing some gardening. The artstyle is in an almost pencil style.

There is no title given on the poster, but the 4 bits of text certainly suggest various things.

Digimon New Movie
02
I am the first person in the world to partner with a Digimon.
The gate to adventure is now open.

Nothing more on this one for now, minus that according to onkeikun the Japanese on the poster seems a bit odd and awkward. So take that as you will.



And then we have images for a new show...

Digimon: Ghost Game (currently inactive web address listed on the poster) would be the newest Digimon TV series, planned to premiere this fall on Fuji TV, meant to take over the slot when Adventure: ends.

The poster shows the logo, with the series title in both Japanese and much larger in English. There is a digital effect in both Gs, along with a new Digimon eye for the O (in the style we've been seeing since the 20th anniversary of Adventure.)

We see three new kids, with the silhouettes of 3 Digimon. The 3 Digimon we also have what appears to be Toei profile art of: Gammamon, Angoramon, and Jellymon.

The text on the poster is just "Hologram? Ghost?"



With DigiFes under 2 days away, we'll likely know pretty quickly whether these are real or fake, so we will see.


Thanks to various people for images and info (it appears the original info was a user on a forum in China.)

Iiiinteresting. I mean, if this is a fake, it's impressive work, I guess we'll find out in the next few days.

I don't have much to say about a 02 movie except I hope they don't try to cram too much into 90 minutes. The original Adventure movie worked because it was so small scale and hopefully this movie is as good.

"Ghost Game" though, that came out of left field. Gives me "Hunters" vibes where kids are hunting what they think are ghosts but turn out to be Digimon.

If that’s real, I didn’t peg Angoramon as a yeti, but got the rest right (and am hyped Triceramon’s gotten a bespoke Child).

The series one is a lot more convincing than the movie on in all honesty. The Digimon there even match the names Jellymon and Angoramon. So I think the series is probably real. The humans looks bland, and really the only thing that would excite me is that Jellymon works really well for Ranamon and that the poster seems to indicate that Jellymon is the silver hair dude's partner? would be nice to finally have a a major male character with a female Digimon. Only one I can think of really is that one episode guy in Hunters with a Witchmon who had 15 seconds screen time. So yeah, Jellymon and her possible male partner is what intrigues me the most. Also, none of those Tamers have goggles.

The movie seems less real with less reason to think it exists. Is it meant to be an 02 movie and I guess that's Davis? but then, saying Davis is the first ever Tamer? that'd be quite the retcon if it's meant to the be OG, so maybe it's a prequel to 2020 I guess? or it's own standalone thing? for now I believe the series but not the movie.

I haven't watched 02 in a while, I wonder if it would be too much of a retcon to have a young Oikawa get a Digimon and then lose his memories (maybe similar to what happens in LEK?). Fairly common fantasy trope, but would play well here.

Ghost Game sounds like they're trying to rip off Yo-Kai watch (not that I know anything about that series) but as long as there aren't too many gimmicks like the past few seasons, I'll be more into it. The character designs aren't great though... but maybe they'll look better animated.

For a Yokai Watch: Imagine Digimon with no fights, much more humor, and the main mechanisms is possession (for both the good and bad guys) and you’re not far off. It’s compared a lot to pokemon, but the Yokai are sentient so the world is closer to Digimon. Or heck, Appmon was Yokai Watch with more fights and evolutions.

It does seem like this could be going by the Survive/Story Digital World where Digimon are ancient magical creatures coincidentally summoned with digital technology instead of being artificial life.

If this is real, it’s a crime they didn’t save Ghosmon to be the main character of Digimon Ghost Game.

Gammamon, Angoramon, and Jellymon
Quick question: where do these names come from? I didn't see them mentioned in any of the leak sources.

From an electronics website allowing pre orders for DIMs.

Villainmon was in there as the fourth partner too.

Gammamon looks amazing, it looks like there’s finally a rookie for Triceramon.

Somewhere.
One thing i find interesting if the movie thing is legit is it almost seems contradictory... i mean it could totally be some set up where the group meets some older guy in his 40s or so who sees their digimon and starts to remember his youth, placing him before team Daigo (assuming they don't want to retcon tri out of existance since they were so insistant that Kizuna didn ot clash with existing stuff at all... which i mean theres still like 17 years between kizuna and 25 years later so maybe?)

Would it be set in adventure verse? would it be set in : verse? would it be some total stand alone... new movie 02 is an odd working title for sure definitely hints at being somehow connected to Zero Two.

But yeah old man telling about some pre team Daigo adventure would be ok.

The series one is a lot more convincing than the movie on in all honesty. The Digimon there even match the names Jellymon and Angoramon. So I think the series is probably real. The humans looks bland, and really the only thing that would excite me is that Jellymon works really well for Ranamon and that the poster seems to indicate that Jellymon is the silver hair dude's partner? would be nice to finally have a a major male character with a female Digimon.

On the topic of Ghost game i would love if Jellymon was not paired with the girl. I know when i saw her art at first i wasl ike- if its legit I'm happy we now hav a decent candidate for a Ranamon rookie. lets see we have tinker, jelly, strabi, fla, kokabuteri, guess that leaves dark, ice, Wood, and metal without plausible rookies off the top of my head. Also could work with stuff like Mermai and A mermai even giving us something other than Swimmon or the recent Sangomon for female water lines.

Please be real! Please be real! I'd take anything instead of adventure: getting a second season.

Two first kids on the left kinda look like Rika and Takato, at least a bit..

I like all three of those new Digimon, images look official enough, so who knows.



What if the 02 movie kid is Iori's dad, Hiroki?

I’m hyped for the new Digimon but wait why isn’t Pulsemon included.

This is my main theory. Was waiting to see if anyone else came to the same conclusion . . . assuming it’s part of the original series continuity of course.

If this is a 2020 “02” they could make up any story, of course.

Sadly he’s already old news.

If this is real, is very contradictory to the Bandai product tease that suggested an Adventure: continuation. Unless that one referred to the 02 movie.

Same!! God, out of all digimon seasons, adventure: is the one deserves a sequel the least.

Ghost Game looks pretty legit and with digifes just two days it makes sense things would start leaking. Heres hoping the writers for this one hasve an actual story to tell and it isn't just aimless side quest galore like some other season...

Assumedly because Pulsemon wasn't created for this anime.

It would also leave the current card game without its TV ad.

But hasn’t been a year since the VB came out months back, now I feel disappointed.
