A small stack of updates for Friday...



A few more small theater additions for Kizuna in Japan...

Today they are adding 7 new theaters. On April 3rd they are adding 1 new theater, and another 1 on April 24th.

The movie has been quietly trucking along.



Next up, social media art!



The Digimon Web Twitter account put up some new art of Coronamon battling the Coronavirus, along with a message:
Coronamon gets mad and explodes against the virus spreading throughout the world 😡🔥 "What a huge load of trouble! 💢 I'll exterminate the virus all over the world with my Petit Prominence!! ☄ " Even Coronamon hopes for the situation to resolve and for peaceful life to return as soon as possible 😣




They followed that up with one featuring Lunamon:
When you return home, when you arrive at the room of your destination outside, or before meals and after work, it's important to diligently wash your hands and gargle. ⭕ Even Lunamon uses her special "Lop-eared Ripple" to make bubbles for hand-washing and get rid of the virus 💯 Don't forget to wash your hands and gargle, everyone




And 2 more from Volcano Ota, hero of all Digimon fans!




First up is one featuring Vritramon:
The technique name for this one was also pointed out to me...
Vritramon!
But the drawing looks similar to Beelzebub, so... maybe it's not that great 💧
Although I say that, I'll post it up anyway since it's drawn (^_^;)






And then one featuring Volcamon:
This was a request that I was already considering... As embarrassing as this is, here's Volcamon 💧
The Coronamon illust fired me up so I drew this in one go!
With a strong heart! Think for yourself! And don't grow complacent!
People of the world, let's all fight together ✊


Next up is a small reference book update!



Spadamon has been added to the reference book. The most notable thing is he has been formally given a level after existing for roughly 10 years. The reference book lists him as a child level.



And last up...



The Digimon Card Game Teaching App, announced a few days ago, has launched on the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store.



The official promo images being used to promote the app...






And thanks to Touya we already have some screenshots, along with some details.



Play modes are unlocked one by one via tutorials for the card game.
Colors appear to be matched in the app to which starter deck you are using.
Evolutions have quick cut in animations.
Clearing the tutorials get you half sized deck for free play against the CPU.



Nice handful of updates before the weekend!



Thanks to onkei for the translations of the social media messages.

all of the Covid-19 themed Digimon art has made me so happy to see this week as well as the fans themselves who readily gave positive comments.
If Digimon is weary of investing in putting a physical card game in retail outside of Japan, it could be an idea to localize the app to see how fan reception goes, and the app itself could help fund a physical release. In the meantime, I'm eager to see how the game develops in Japan and the new art and concepts it brings

Amazing art. Problem is that the app is obviously in Japanese and someone like me doesn't understand a word :(

Whoa they actually made the new digimon card into app? But since it's app... It means for more money to spend... Ugh but at least I finally got to see how it play.

It's just a tutorial app

Ha. I do enjoy these pictures. If only if it was this easy. But hey, nice to see the movie doing well.

This new art is super cute, and I'm especially pleased that they let Lunamon join in.
