Well, a bit of a surprise...

A new English DigiNavi has been put up in the lead-up to Anime Expo.


This goes over various recent and upcoming Digimon products, with a focus being on things that will be previews at Anime Expo and otherwise coming out soon, it's functionally meant to be a primer/teaser for Anime Expo and the Digimon booth.

The official descriptions for the video...

Youtube
This is a special program to commemorate our exhibit at Anime Expo 2022 and to bring you the latest information on Digimon Toys. We’ve got new info on Vital Heroes and Digimon Cards, plus more news on the Digimon Ghost Game anime!

Twitter
AX-Anime Expo 2022 will be finally held tomorrow! The Digimon merchandise information program “DIGIMON NAVI” will be streamed at the venue!


Minimal screencaps since it's all in English and easy to follow, and much of it is catch-up, although there is some new stuff. Consider this a cliff notes, and the stream is embedded above for easy viewing...

They start showing off Digimon Project, to show off the Vital Hero at the end.

Hosted by Matthew Masaru Barron, along with Gammamon and others from throughout Bandai to help present items.


For the Vital Hero...

The Vital Bracelet Lab appears to be keeping the name for now at least.

They reconfirm, and clarify, that Dim Cards are swappable between Vital Bracelet and Vital Hero.

The Vital Hero uses Digivice V programming, has a better sensor, and has an adjustable band for better sizing.

The Online Battle Championship will be in October.

I'm pretty sure there were a few wrong details mixed in there also?




English Card Game previews...

They go over EX-02, the Adventure Box, BT-09, & tease BT-10.

25th anniversary cards will be purchase bonus' for BT-10.

They restate the BT-11 vote cards will be out with that set.



They preview various figures and model kits, while also showing off Anime Heroes Omegamon, WarGreymon, & Beelzebumon again. All will be at the $19.99 price point.


They show off the DigiColle rerelease. They remind everyone Survive will be playable at Anime Expo, along with various things being shown during DigiNavi (like DigiColle) will be sold at ANime Expo also.



They also do a small segment for Ghost Game, where they confusingly 'announce' it, while also point out it's been airing since last year. Nothing new, just a "the show is currently streaming on Crunchyroll."


They finish showing the full Digimon Project 2021 music video.



Anime Expo 2022 is July 1-4, and Bandai's booth with Digimon content is #2211.

"There you have it folks, if you have a Digimon card, you don't need your passport."

Never change, Barron.

Interesting to hear about the online tournament, although it's presumably for the new app they're developing, so wonder when we'll see that. And the Vital Hero commercial was pretty cool. They did say all of the Vital Hero cards that came with the devices would have new lines, but I guess that doesn't apply to poor Pulsemon.

And nice to see the Anime Heroes figures in more detail too. Not entirely sold on them yet, but that could change, and the $20 price point ain't half bad.
