I'm sorry if there is already a thread like this about this game but I did a quick search and didn't see one.

So what are you hopes for the new Digimon survive game coming out next year (unless pushed back)?

Personally and as morbid as this might be I am hoping that the characters that can die if you mess up are or atleast include the human characters. Not just digimon ones given how it was advertised.

I also hope that all of the main characters digimon have split digivelutions not just your main character based on in game choices.

Story wise I hope that if there must be a villian then it is a human one or better yet find some way that the situation is caused by some event in nature rather than by someone on purpose.

Characters dying based on what choices you make has already been confirmed, though I'd assume the second a death happens youre no longer on the true ending route. I recall reading even the protag can die, though I assume that's a game over and you'd have to reload lol

I don't have any particular hopes for the game itself as I'm not sure what to expect.

The one thing I'm certainly hoping for is this leading to more Digimon games on the Switch.

I'm just hoping we get a good translation for once. I could deal with the translations in the CS games, but they weren't GOOD.

My main hope with Digimon Survive is that it has a good story and character development, similar to Hacker's Memory, a decent amount of Digimon and surprising choices, and being multiplatform (esp. Steam), that help Digimon videogames break the wall in the West once and for good. I mean, they need more recognition and despite having good games, Digimon is still a great unknown here.

By the way, when could we expect news on Digimon Survive? I'm kinda worried at this point...

after the last batch, Habu said we wouldn't get anything for a few months. maybe we'll get something around Jan/Feb

they announced too early

I'm kind of hoping what little I've seen from gameplay videos is still earlier development because while the art is lovely, I saw a video of non-battle game play and it looks like a cheaply made point and click PC game. The characters in the 'overworld' are just flat models and it feels really really gross. It's been bad enough to me that Next Order and Cyber Sleuth had most 'cut scenes' playing out with the actual world pretty much grayed out with the character's models emoting side by side like I'm playing a game like Harvest Moon, but at least they had 3D models for the characters and SOME action outside emoting at each other. What I saw so far it looks like you're walking up to emoting cardboard cutouts which is makes everything feel really creepy to me.

The flat card-board cutouts kind of work in the tactics-like combat, but it still looks and feels very cheap. In fact I just realized why it feels so annoyingly bad to me. This looks like a phone game. Everything about it looks like a phone game to me. The actual Digimon Phone games have beautiful 3D models considering the hardware they run on. Were it not for the fact the teaser trailer clearly states this is a console-focused game, I'd assume that this has to be another phone game. The battle sprites themselves look very pretty and detailed but the way they're animated feels like I'm watching clips from a unlicensed third party game using the Digimon characters and brand name.

It reminds me of the Disgaea 1 Complete artstyle compared to the sprites from the original version. Sure, it LOOKS better when everything's not animating but it just feels like cheaper flipbook animation at best and slightly off stop-motion at worst. It just looks and feels cheaper and the digimon in-battle feel lifeless somehow.

Though I'll not get my hopes up. This is apparently just the 'style' this genre of game apparently has now. I'll still get the game because I'm a total digimon nerd and I crave new digimon games like a starving dog craves a plate of t-bone steak, I'm probably still gonna shudder when I 'walk up' to an NPC to talk and their cutout non-seamlessly turns to face me. I've just.. I've always hated games with flat character models in even a pseudo-3D environment, even when I was younger. Games like DOOM, the earliest Elder Scrolls games, and games like that with flat sprites that constantly face you. Though if I went now and played a game like Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall I'd still not shudder as hard as Digimon Survive makes me feel like. Because those games were produced back before 3D models were too much more than sharp angles and flat textures.

TL;DR PinkIceFox is very salty that the aesthetic of this game seems to be point and click in 3D rooms while cardboard cutouts turn to face you at all times and do combat in what feels like someone's Totally-Not-Digimon-but-Yeah-this-is-Digimon phone game someone's gonna post a screenshot of online saying 'OmG SOMEONE'S STEALING BANDAI'S IP AND CHARACTERS FOR THEIR OWN PROFIT!!1! REPORT TO THE IPHONE APPS STORE'. But she'll buy it and play it anyway out of fear they won't give us Digimon Games outside of Japan again if she doesn't.

Something I am a little concerned about is the state of the Digital World in Survive.

I've noticed that from the screenshots of the DW looking just like a darker dilapidated version of the real world and the marketing avoiding calling the partners "Digimon" instead stuff like "Mysterious Monsters" leads me to believe they might be downplaying the Sci-Fi aspects which would be a shame if that does turn out to be the case as I really enjoy that part of Digimon.

I'm certainly open to being proven wrong.

Super excited for Digimon survive, not only because its new and fresh but because I like that the story of the game will be through a visual novel style telling. If you've ever played a visual novel game you probably know what I mean. Also the fact that they are FINALLY getting into the darker parts of Digimon, yes they had some dark moments in the animes and a few games. But never like how they are advertising it here.

This brings me to my hopes for the game. I hope that they don't skimp out on the dark part, and just make it "Digimon/ person dies because you lost this battle". I wan't detail and conflict. For example if you've made multiple friends in the game and some one dies because of YOU, the other characters will cry and possibly take there anger out on you blaming you. IF it was the human dying, their partner/s would have a conflict with you. Another thing is I hope the locations, story and battles of the game take some info of Digimon and use them to enchance the immersion. I'd love to have a arc in the game where you have to go through a forest that contains Cherrymon/Jyureimon and they attempt to display illusions and lure you into the forest so that they can absorb you as nutrients and you must battle your way out to survive.

Oh and also that there will be a variety of digimon, I saw some digimon I was unfamiliar with in the video showcasing 5 minutes of gameplay, so I hope that there will be a large roster. (Hoping for Veedramon - Ulforceveedramon!)

unfortunately the roster is just 100 + alpha. They said that they won't include digimon that looks sci-fi and doesn't fit the theme of the environment.

What do you mean by sci-fi Digimon? If they have to fit the environment, which I assume it's lika an island with different biomes similar to File Island, here's some Digimon that in my opinion are a must:
1. Elecmon > Aegiomon > Aegiochusmon > Jupitermon
2. V-mon > V-dramon > Aero V-dramon > Ulforce V-dramon
3. Alraumon > Fairymon > Shutumon > Ancient Irismon
4. Armadimon > Ankylomon > Triceramon > Spinomon
5. Coronamon > Firamon > Flaremon > Apollomon
6. Lunamon > Lekismon > Crescemon > Dianamon
7. Tentomon > Kabuterimon > Atlur Kabuterimon > Herakle Kabuterimon
8. Piyomon > Birdramon > Garudamon > Hououmon
9. Dracomon > Coredramon (Blue)/Coredramon (Green) > Wingdramon/Groundramon > Slayerdramon/Breakdramon
10. Hawkmon > Aquilamon > Yatagaramon (2006) > Ravemon
11. Renamon > Kyubimon > Taomon > Sakuyamon
12. Floramon > Kiwimon > Sirenmon > Ceresmon
13. Labramon > Siesamon > Cerberumon > Plutomon
14. Kamemon > Gawappamon > Shawujinmon > Jumbo Gamemon
15. Phascomon > Porcupamon > Astamon > Belphemon RM
16. Pico Devimon > Devimon > Vamdemon > Demon
17. DORUmon > DORUgamon > DORUguremon > DORUgoramon
18. Liamon > Liollmon > Loader Liomon > Bantyo Liomon
19. Falcomon > Diatrymon > Yatagaramon > Valdurmon
20. Dokunemon > Kuwagamon > Okuwamon > Grand Kuwagamon
21. Ryudamon > Ginryumon > Hisyaryumon > Ouryumon
22. Erismon > Filmon > Stefilmon > Erismon's Mega
23. Blucomon > Chackmon > Blizzarmon > Ancient Megatheriummon
24. Vorvomon > Lavorvomon > Lavogaritamon > Volcanicdramon
25. Palmon > Togemon > Lilimon > Rosemon
26. Gomamon > Ikkakumon > Zudomon > Vikemon
27. Impmon > Black Tailmon > Lady Devimon > Lilithmon
28. Dracumon > Sangloupmon > Matadrmon > Grand Dracumon
29. Funbeemon > Waspmon > Cannondramon > Tiger Vespamon
30. Otamamon > Ranamon > Mermaidmon > Ancient Mermaidmon
31. Swimmon > Rukamon > Whamon > Neptunemon
32. Gabumon > Garurumon > Were Garurumon > Mercurymon
33. Meicoomon > Tobucatmon > Skull Baluchimon > Dinotigermon
34. Mushmon > Arbormon > Petaldramon > Ancient Troiamon
35. Bearmon > Gryzmon > Grappu Leomon > Marsmon
36. Kudamon > Reppamon > Tyilinmon > Sleipmon
37. Plotmon > Tailmon > Angewomon > Junomon
38. Patamon > Angemon > Holy Angemon > Valkyrimon
39. Goburimon > Grottemon > Gigasmon > Ancient Volcamon
40. Agumon > Tyranomon > Master Tyranomon > Ancient Greymon

Among many others. Essentially Digimon that may ressemble mammals, birds, insects, plants or mythological creatures in the most organic possible way. Also the recolours from Digimon World 1 and most of the Armor Digimon would make great as enemies.

NO. Screw recolours. Since they said you can recruit the enemy Digimon to your side, if they put a recolour in, theyre taking a slot of the 100.

your list is missing the Gabumon line since we already saw Garurumon.

in fact, here are the already cofirmed digimon:

Koromon (prob just opening cutscene tho)

Agumon, Falcomon OG, Floramon, Labramon, Palmon

Garurumon, Greymon, Meramon, Numemon

MetalGreymon, Okuwamon

Logic indicates each of these would have an evolution line.

So:

Palmon adds Togemon, Lillymon and Rosemon

Numemon adds... Monzaemon? and ???? and would he have a Rookie stage? (if you can recruit it, the likleyhood is yes)

Garurumon adds the obvious.

Meramon would be Blue/Skull and Bolt? not sure what rookie? I'd say Impmon, but Cyber and Hackers don't have Imp - Mera (which upsets me) and Habu is doing this game, so it seems unlikely to be that.

Okuwamon means Kuwagamon and Gran. Rookie Kokuwamon maybe? or something else.

its possible numemon and meramon dont have rookie stages, and you get them as champions I suppose, but that would imply barely any rookies at all.

so yea, you need to substitute some of your lines with Mons that already confirmed.

also considering Habu, Ultra will prob be used too (Omnimon)

also why is meicoomon a rookie in your list?

By fitting the environment, I think it's more of the case of "Digimon you would encounter in the wild in a survival situation," rather than "Digimon that are thematic to niche biomes." Like, you could encounter a swarm of Okuwamons in the wilderness, or even a patrolling squad of Guardromons, but you won't just find a pack of Plutomons wandering around in the woods.

Also, given the small roster total of around 100 Digimon, I'm assuming there will be a lot of overlaps in evolutions, and/or not all Digimon will have a "complete" line.

I mean, the theme of Survive isn't sci-fi like Cyber Sleuth, it looks more into typical natural isekai, which might mean that we won't see digimon like full-body mechas, galaxy-themed digimon, futuristic digimon (like mastemon, ebemon, etc), or any digimon that doesn't fit the natural environment.

If that's the case, then I agree with you.

I put it, No. 32. Though I personally think Mercurymon would fit quite better the role as its Mega in tis kind of scnario more than Metal Garurumon.

In fact, here are the already cofirmed digimon:

Koromon (prob just opening cutscene tho)

Agumon, Falcomon OG, Floramon, Labramon, Palmon

Garurumon, Greymon, Meramon, Numemon

Considering how limitated s the roster this time, I would prefer some fun surprises instead of the obvious, but we will see! Now that I think of it, what if this hiatus on news on Survive is because of the team working on the game have decided to add more mons that what was announced in the first place? Seriously though, when was the last time we heard about something new on Survive?

Also why is meicoomon a rookie in your list?
You are right! I like so much the idea of Meicoomon evolving into Tobucatmon that I forget it was a Champion lol

I mean, the theme of Survive isn't sci-fi like Cyber Sleuth, it looks more into typical natural isekai, which might mean that we won't see digimon like full-body mechas, galaxy-themed digimon, futuristic digimon (like mastemon, ebemon, etc), or any digimon that doesn't fit the natural environment.
That makes total sense, and I'm personally into it, even that it wasn't the rule in Cyber Sleuth or Hacker's Memory.

That last news as far as I know is the tweet from Habu in September, stating that there will be an absence of information for a while, starting from next month, as they focus on development. After all, the game was only about 30% complete back in September, according to an interview. It's not like they can just publish an update for every 5% of work they complete, especially since there wouldn't be much info to update on, aside from spoiler-heavy content.

They could at least give us art of the final two humans (that we know of anyway) and their partner Digimon lol. that would tie people over for a month or two

heck we already know Saki and Floramon, so just give us an art of those two, and then tell us about the glasses guy and his partner Mon

I agree it wouldn't hurt to show the fans that the game is still developed instead of being cancelled. We know it's not (or I hope it's not), but showing something every now and then would be really nice.
