Time for another preview of the new issue of V-Jump!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

First up, an official reveal that AtlurKabuterimon is Digivolving Spirits #06!

Because of a photo of a box on display, we found this out a bit early.


Nothing super interesting in the text from what I can make out, mostly various facts about Tentomon and AtlurKabuterimon. The photos of both forms appear to be the same images from the early image we have in fact.

Most interesting here is an image of the figure in the middle of it's transformation. It looks decently complex and I look forward to more images of it transforming.


We can also see just a touch of Digimon ReArise stuff above the figure.



Update- Tamashii has put up a promotional photo of AtlurKabuterimon!

A better image like this lets us see some of the details up close and is our best look at the figure yet.

At least at the moment they haven't posted any additional photos or details about the figure.

We also have another image of the same portion of V-Jump...

And then we have them teasing a 3rd series of Digital Monster Capsule Mascot Collection figures. We know about these already, and know a bit more than V-Jump is teasing. V-Jump is teasing a release.... someday! Prior information tells us these will show up in July!


To the side of this we can't really tell what it is to be honest. Based on the photo I'd guess showing off the re-release DigiColle figures.

Omegamon Merciful Mode will be appearing in Digimon Linkz!

The newest version of Omegamon showing up soon in the game isn't that big of a surprise with all of the tri. Part 6 marketing going around, but it's still nice.

And he will be showing up in early May. Perhaps around the 5th? Hopefully it won't be a long wait for those who play Digimon Links outside of Japan.



Last up is a preview we saw earlier today!

Previews of artwork from the 2 upcoming Battle Spirits sets!

These images are generally better than what we initially had, although we updated with these earlier.

I've already commented on these in their own thread, so I'll leave my thoughts to there.



Hopefully some more V-Jump updates soon (with more images!)


Thanks to kabuto_w and A_n_ochan for the images.



Update- The ReArise has posted silhouettes of the player character.

They mention the full visual of the player can be seen in the new V-Jump and they'll share it soon on Twitter.



Update- The protagonists from V-Jump!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

Thanks to Muur for the image, although at the moment we aren't sure where it originally came from.



Update- Better quality images of everything (thanks to a Baidu user, which is where the ReArise protagonist image came from.)

MM being added is interesting. Means we have a model for future games, or HM, provided they touch it up a bit. Wondering how we'd get it outside of links as that just uses Mega with no Ultra and balance doesn't matter there. Maybe just a mode change on HM focusing on defence like Dragon Mode vs Figther. Can't see it being more powerful unless the original is nerfed.

V-Jump is not where the artwork has shown up. It's been in various Animedia and Animedia-related magazines. The most recent one was posted a week ago in another thread.

That explains a lot of how Tentomon would work. Thanks for these. Can't wait to see it when it's out.

Where did you find this promo image for Megakabuterimon? I looked on the tamashii web and couldn’t find where they posted it

Updated the news with the image of the protagonist characters.

generic lol
I'm not sure what you were expecting.
Yeah, I dissapointed myself lol. I thought they'd at least be colourful and stuff, especially after they hyped it up with the blacked out pics. I Thought the girl at least would be really cute but instead we had blandy mcblandface.

At least I know they wouldn't have designs like this, outside of NPCs, for a real protagonist.

See, I disagree a bit.

The colors of the clothes are a bit different than expected, and their faces are drawn a bit differently than I'd expect. The facial structure seems a bit tweaked than I would have expected based on the other designs with a slightly different smile.


The overall designs are roughly what I'd expect for an RPG type protagonist, but with a few design tweaks here and there in regards to certain bits of the outfits (more on the girl than the boy.)



While I don't believe the designs are fresh, they also aren't 'exactly' the designs you'd expect as the player character for a Digimon game.

They look like I might think they do. Much like a Pokemon MC, you can probably name them yourselves though they might have names for reasons.

I think it's the face that does it for me tbh, whilst their hair styles+colour are a copy paste from every anime in existence. I think I'd like it better if their hair was green/pink or something

and yeah, usually the girl is a lot more flashy with the guy generic. If the guy was the only one and he was there, then it'd be as you expect but the girl being almost the exact same, it's just way too bland for me to care.

But I guess they did say you play in first person, so you probably don't even see them outside of the selection screen.

I really dislike the outfit too, though that's because of the colour they chose.

I think the Michi girl would've been a good female lead, with the Dorumon guy being a good option for the dude lead.

Added better quality V-Jump images.

For now I tossed them at the bottom since there is nothing significantly new and of note (and I'm about to be out for a bit.) I may reformulate the article later.
