artstyle screams a bit of the original C'mon Digimon manga plus a mixture between Appmon and Legendz.
About that link - I saw a Twitter user point out that there’s an African triceratops cryptid called the Ngamba-namae.

If this is actually Gambamon that ties all three partners into one theme: Cryptids/Unidentified Mysterious Animals. Which further ties into the supernatural theme of the title and makes the whole series harken back to Legendz.

Going even crazier, if this was a series that retconed Legendz into Digimon by slapping “mon” on the end of the names of all the Legendz (Windragon becomes Windramon) I wonder how the fandoms would react, lol.

I'm so excited!! Finally a break from original Adventure stuff. The Digimon Ghost Game kinda remind me of protagonists from Digimon Next manga...

If anything, the English on the title is a giveaway this is fake-- usually when you have the title written both in Japanese and in latin characters, the primary version of the logo is written in Japanese, with the English title as a "subtitle". Usually you only see the reverse done for overseas logos, but naturally that is for overseas-advertising purposes, and this key visual is clearly supposed to be an announcement poster for the Japanese audience, since the air date etc were written in Japanese. So I find it super unlikely it's for real (also the logo just looks like poo poo garbage)

I will say tho, the art style totally looks like it was drawn by Yabuno Ten'ya, so I gotta give the fanartist who drew and posted the original points for replicating his art style so well 👏 It had me convinced for a good while
Really hope this isn't real. That's a really good point there that I didn't think of.

Somewhere else I read that this was a mini series lasting three months. Something is fishy here. I could see this as a mini series to promote the Bracelets and something else to be next series.

As for 02 movie I am uncertain. Looks interesting but we will see...

I’m excited for the potential 02 movie, since that’s something we need. Something that connects Tri and Kizuna to the 02 epilogue and gives the 02 kids some spotlight. Seeing Valkyriemon and Slashangemon (or some other mega for Armadimon) would be a sweet plus. I also like the tone the poster is trying to set up.

Ghost Game though... It looks pretty bad. The designs look underwhelming. If it’s real (it probably is) I hope it’s redeemed by it’s official art, their animation, and their evo end up looking awesome. Not a fan of Angoramon, mixed about Jellymon and Gammamon. I agree. Gammamon doesn’t need the scarf. There’s to much similarities with Hackmon. Overall not feeling it. Curious how the Digivice V will be?

I mean I wanted it to be real- not in the sense I'd want this specific series to be real (the Digimon designs aside from Gammamon don't speak to me, neither do the characters, and it gives me the feel it'd probably be another Hunters/Appmon-style series and I'm not into those, though if it WAS a miniseries I'd be all for it because at least if it wasn't great I'd be a short experience), I just want there to be another Digimon anime, especially if it had nothing to do with Adventure

But since it was appearently posted by a known fanartist, the likelyhood Ghost Game is legit is low

The Ghost Game digimon trio look good.
Jellymon looks a bit different in terms of design but it can convince me it is digimon.
Angoramon, as some of us expected, a long haired digimon. What I like much about it is it's a big boi. Hopefully it's a Child level. I love big Child digimon. Guilmon, Sparrowmon, you have company.
And Gammamon, our new dino boi? I can think it can branch evo into Monochromon, Triceramon, Vermillimon, and of course Dorbickmon!

They would have their own Dims. We'll see if they get many evolutions like Pulsemon.
A new series with only three protagonists I think is fine. It's best for screentime and character development. Maybe we'll get the additional member later?
The MC doesn't look like he has goggle, but let's wait.
The human characters look like they're designed by Tenya Yabuno.

I don't know what to react to the movie one, 02. Because I don't have any clue. Except, the digimon that look cute and the human character in Nakatsuru(?)'s style. Whatever it will be I hope it will be good.

Let's go Digifest!

I agree with most people here that Digimon Ghost Game looks real but that the 02 movie looks doubtful.

Really looking forward to Ghost Game! The Yabuno Tenya artstyle on the tamers is great and the new digimon are pretty lovely
I hope they get popular enough so we can have a biiiiiig Angoramon plushie... They look very fluffy and would make for a good pillow

The 02 movie has me intrigued! The first tamer in the adventure timeline + 02 kids (Im assuming its gonna be because the Adv cast will have already lost their diggles) sounds fun! Poster reminds me of some of Kenjis illustration for Adv 2020

They’ve done so much retconning with Kizuna I don’t think they care about continuity in any way but the broadest strokes.

They can easily find some way to slam it into 02’s story: like Hiroki kept meeting this “Turnipmon” secret because he didn’t want to make Oikawa jealous or because he’s worried he imagined it or some such justification like that.
Sure they can do it. They can do anything technically. That's why I called it a worst case scenario, and not an impossible scenario.
It's not that they wouldn't be capable of doing it, I'd just consider it pretty much indefensible from an artistic standpoint if they did.

Another thing to consider: The V-bracelet Dim-cards for these three Digimon are slated for later this year, according to pre-order websites. So, this might mean we'll see their full lines a bit quicker than usual. Especially if the Anime starts in september.
Or we could get a truly classic style Digimon opening that spoils all partner forms up to Perfect and maybe even silhouettes for the Ultimates.

The wording they used suggested that it would be connected to Adventure:. Remember that they called it a "Digimon Adventure: Follow up/successor" not a "new Digimon anime"
I think someone else already pointed out that they could have been talking in terms of time slots.
I guess it would help to know if that is a common perspective to take in more internal documents.

He’s got the same design philosophy as Renamon: mostly one color, too big, no asymmetry, looks halfway between Child and Adult.
If that was the intention it was terribly executed here. Renamon had far more than one color going on and far more detail in terms of general proportions as well as fur tufts, those shoulder fur spikes and the very prominent gloves.

This guy is clearly the comic relief so hopefully his bland design is because he’s going to be expressively animated and taking a bunch of pratfalls and cartoony exaggerated poses.
I don't see anything "clear" about this assumption so I'm also skeptical about all those conclusions drawn from said assumption.

Those belts probably are for a backpack though, given how backpacking ties in with the yeti/Bigfoot theme.
Again, I am not convinced of all those foregone conclusions here.
If those Digimon correspond to the DiM cards, this guy would imho be Angoramon, and that would mean his design is not based off bigfoot but on the Angora rabbit, which accounts for the fur color, the covered face, and the giant flappy ears shown in the sillhuette (and that we can also glimpse in the front view, held together behind its head by another belt) that are definitely not a feature of bigfoot.

My view on his design philosophy is that it's supposed to actually be the fat rabbit that people always mistake Galgomon for.

But since it was appearently posted by a known fanartist, the likelyhood Ghost Game is legit is low
Huh, now that would be big if confirmed... do we know which artist exactly?
From searching the chinese forum for the User ID used to post the images initially (as far as we know) I haven't really come across any fanart...

Could be just me but ghost game art style looking really similar to Vtamers.

I am... not impressed by any of the Ghost Game designs. We were having a pretty solid streak of good-to-great Digimon designs since at least tri I'd say, but these guys are pretty underwhelming to say the least. Like I know anime-first Digimon tend to have their own "look" to them compared to vpet-first, game-first, etc. Digimon; but nothing about these guys, except maybe "Gammamon's" eyes and "Angoramon's" random belts, looks like Digimon to me. "Jellymon" especially is disappointing, if real. Real life cnidarians are so cool and weird, why would you make a jellyfish monster that's just some girl with a silly hat? I don't know if I wanna say that they're definitely fake just because I don't like them though, I already made that mistake with Incineroar. But I won't be sad if they end up being hoaxes.

The 02 fella looks alright though, looks like a little sea angel. It'd be the first clione Digimon since Marine Angemon.

I can't deny I'm super-hyped, assuming this is not fake, but I don't like the designs of the new Digimon (If I didn't know, I wouldn't even guess they are Digimon). Though the tilte is intriguing.

Given how many places have jumped the gun and framed this news as Absolutely Real, Definitely, if it is just fanart then the fallout from that is going to be hilarious.

Going off of the appearance of the boy in the 02 poster, he could be Daisuke Motomiya's father or grandfather.

I am glad that something brand new is being done with the Digimon IP with Digimon: Ghost Game. Going off of "Ghost...?", the Digimon could function like JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's Stands and can only be seen by Chosen Children. Speculatively, the Chosen Children could fuse with their Partner Digimon in order for them evolve, in a similar way to Digimon Tamers' Biomerging.

I like Jellymon's design.

Admitedly my source on the fanartist thing isn't great but I had two friends (one of whom is super diligent when it comes to stuff like this) (also neither knew each other) say the same thing. Even if both of them were mistaken, as far as we know the source of these leaks is from a Chinese forum (and the posters have bizarre Japanese on them) so these "leaks" should be taken with a big grain of salt

Oh so Gammamon, Angoramon and Jellymon names are actually true?! I didn't realize that...

So... Angoramon is that yellow Yeti digimon? Uhhhh why this Yeti design?! What's this, Renamon/Galgomon hybrid form?

Interesting. I always wanted Jelly digimon. I didn't think it is that ocean version of Lilymon as Jellymon... I was hoping Jelly digimon design is supposed to be more menacing and nasty like Piranimon and Octmon combined.

Gammamon... I have to admit usually we get tons of meat eater digimons but it's pretty refreshing to have herbivore reptile/dino digimon as the main digimon partner. So "Gamma"... I bet it will be related to Alpha/Omega somehow. Or different meanings?

I honestly cant with jellymon design, i mean, i never liked digimons that look so out of place, i mean, if it was a random digimon from a dim card, like an adult in a water related dim card it would be ok, i would dislike it but its ok, i dislike tons of digimons, the thing is that its a fking partner, i cant see a digimon anime in wich one of the main characters has a loli as partner because yes.


Idk, it would be better to have angoramon and jellymon debuting in pendulumZ and Sunarizamon, Sangomon, Pomumon or Ghosmon replacing them in this new series, at least the pendulumZ child digis looks like real child level digis.

Eh?
Reactions to the new diggles are kinda weird to me
I was afraid people would say they are too generic, since they are all very standard digimon designs.
I really dont know where this "they dont look like digimon" stuff comes from.
I saw people say stuff like that about Terriermon in the past too, and I just dont get it.
