I think that, in the very early days, localisers wanted something to distinguish it from POKÉMON, and settled on adding digi- to everything because, I dunno, branding. From there it unfortunately grew to become a driving force in the paradigm of DIGIMON localisation.The dub and its advertising overuse it, adding it to random words for no discernible reason. My best guess is that it's supposed to be one of the tacky pseudo-jokes so beloved of the dub.
I just hope they don't milk Adventure's list of Digimon to try to draw people in with nostalgia.
I guess I should have read your post before posting. It seems we had the same idea, where the final four would be Gaomon, and the Tamers Digimon. Also how do you know Hououmon is in? I only watched the trailer and have seen a few screenshots. Is there something I missed?Does this bother you?Well, it certainly uses "Digi-" enough.
Agreed. But I'm happy because I am not buying an XBox One or PS4looks interesting, but seriously it seems more like a cash-grab cheap party game, especially since don't even bother releasing it on current gen consoles
but man, you really notice it's an last last gen game when all the textures look like some kind of cheap plastic. All in all this just seemslike something released a few years too late...
The way I see it, we have 4 adventure, 2 Zero02, 2 Fusion.Well, it is at least something nice for the West
I just think it is a bit sad, that half of the character slots seem to be used up by Adventure Digimon. I wish they had decided to take two Digimon out of each generation.
One source says 12 base with a total of 32 after evolutions which is odd because it seems like some with get 2 evolutions and some will get just 1.
With only four base digimon to be revealed it's really hard to guess. We can probably rule out Gumdramon because Hunters has yet to make its western debut.
But we can probably expect at least one digimon each from Savers and Tamers because footage was used from the show. So my guess is:
That would mean 2 digimon from 4 seasons and 4 digimon from the first season with Frontier being the only not represented. My (plausible) hope is:
I agree. I appreciate Biyomon and Tentomon! And Gatomon (like in rumble arena) is probably being used more or less as an adventure 2 digimon.Well, this is unexpected...
It probably is a test of Western interest. Not the best way to do it, but not the worst.
Off the screenshots linked in that article, we can guess eight of the twelve: Agumon, Gabumon, Biyomon, Tentomon, Gatomon, Veemon, Shoutmon, and Dorulumon. Yes, that is a bit Adventure heavy, but consider the alternative. If the parameter was "two per series", history suggests it would have been Agumon, Veemon, Guilmon, Agnimon, the other Agumon, Shoutmon, Gabumon, Wolfmon, Gaomon, Dorulumon, either Renamon or Terriermon depending on who made the decision, and I have no clue who the twelfth would be. While "neither" would be better, given the choice of "mostly Adventure" or "mostly dragons and dogs", the former is a less-severe mistake.
Though I do hope Terriermon is among the unrevealed characters. There's no good reason not to include him.
And hey! Does anyone else find it strange that Hououmon is featured in this game? I'm surprised because it didn't make an anime appearance as Biyomon's evolution, Garudamon would've been much cooler, popular (in my opninion), and recognizable, and if Hououmon is in, why MegaKabuterimon instead of HerakleKabuterimon??
With the limited number of Wii U sales, combined with the historical fact that many people just stick to Nintendo games, they've likely decided it wasn't worth their money to port it.I really don't see why they can't end up on the WiiU. The graphics really don't look nice enough for the excuse that the system can't handle it.
