V-Jump time!

Image Thumbnail (custom)

It's just about time for the September issue of V-Jump to come out and we have everything early!

This issue is mostly batches of news for things we got a couple weeks ago, but there are a few new things of interest....


First up, the initial 2 page spread is dedicated to Digimon Survive and Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition (Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory for Switch in Japan.)

Most of the information here is bits we've seen before (and generally recently) for both games, but we'll have them looked over for any new bits to translate shortly.

The main element that will be of interest to most will be the screenshots from the Digimon Survive animated intro, as shown at Anime Expo.



The Digimon section has been 2 pages recently in V-Jump, but this month it's expanded to a 3rd page due to the amount of things they are showing off...

The left portion is for Zillions of Enemy X since there isn't quite enough Digimon stuff to cover 4 pages.


The Digimon content on this spread begins with Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna, showing off a few promotional screenshots and images, along with showing various bits of information we got recently. With DigiFes next week, we can likely expect a bit more next month.


Next is a section featuring the 'end of Season 1' content for Digimon ReArise, including Rasenmon.


To the left of ReArise we get a section showing off some of the cards from the Digimon Card Premium Edition releases that will first be available at DigiFes next week. Featured are Taichi and Agumon from the Carddass set and Omegamon from the original Digimon card game set (more commonly known as Hyper Colosseum.)


At the bottom right we get a preview of Precious GEM Beelzebumon and Behemoth.


Last up, instead of the Digimon social art corner, which has appeared recently, we get new artwork for 3 new Digimon appeaing in the Digimon X2 V-Pet:
Agumon Black X is new artwork, but as expected is effectively just a recolor of Agumon X using black and red.
Vamdemon X shows us his new art and our first look at the new design. It appears to keep elements of his regal design, while adding emphasis to elements like his wings and collar. It makes me think Castlevania when I look at it.
MetalGreymon Virus X is the big surprise though. We were expecting a recolor, but he gets an entirely new design as opposed to being a recolor of MetalGreymon X. It appears almost every aspect has been redesigned for this new version of MetalGreymon X, from obvious elements like his energy cannon, to a new armor design and energy wings.



Hopefully we can get some cleaner images soon that doesn't crush the blacks quite so much so we can see more of these new designs.


Thanks to TechnicalSuwako for the images.

Whoa MetalGreymon (Virus) X isn't even recolored anymore. Now he got that GIANT RAILGUN ARM. That metal helmet resembles to GaiOumon's helmet instead of MetalGreymon X's. And BlackAgumon X looks very raptor-ish.

Surprisingly Vamdemon X got... Handsome chin? And that Kamina Glasses should belong to Rasenmon instead... lol But he look even more Dracula-ish which is great!

I expected MetalGreymon Virus X to have darker skin since his sprite has a black body (as opposed to the white body for the regular MetalGreymon Virus's sprite in the Digital Monster), but this is much better than I expected. It's a much "darker" design while still retaining the blue skin.

New Survive screenshots confirm Diatrymon, Biyomon and Gazimon to be in the game, shows a sort of abandonde mansion/castle area (Always nice to have environment variety)
Also gives us a closer look at the new UI for both battle and the VN part.
Aside from that it shows the new art from the posters at anime expo and I assume the screenshots of the animated cutscene means they''ll likely upload that soon.

I imagine that was not an accident given that Gaioumon itself was designed to be BlackWarGreymon X before it became its own thing.

This just means they decided official old artworks of x-antibody digimon can be redesigned....will be very interesting to see which other ones get a new official form

MetalGreymon Virus didn't have an X-Antibody counterpart in the first place, so it's technically a brand new X-Antibody, not a redesign of an old X-Antibody. I guess you can still say it's another X-Antibody redesign of the initial MetalGreymon design, since the original Vaccine and Virus MetalGreymons are just recolors of each other. But that doesn't mean pre-existing X-Antibodies like Kuwagamon X are getting new redesigns.

I always liked that Panjyamon X was different enough from Leomon X that it made them look like subspecies than recolours, so I'm really happy they did this with MetalGreymon.

I always wanted to see Digimon share similarities that they didn't really have before the X antibody, like if we got a Patamon X I always thought it'd be cool if it had a horn that resembled Rhinomon X's sword horn because there is limited X antibody Digimon. And so I really like that BlackAgumon has red stripes like DarkTyranomon because Agumon X had blue stripes from Greymon.

Now that you mention it I can definitely see a resemblance. Arguably, Gaioumon would've been a better fit for this instead of BlackWarGreymon X.

Anyway; MetalGreymon looks fantastic and I can't wait for the clean art. Vamdemon was well overdue for an X form and he looks pretty great too. BlackAgumon looks like a baby DarkTyrannomon which makes sense in context, and the red stripes are a nice contrast to regular Agumon X's blue stripes.

If only they could release the next new series of Digimon cards or like Crusaders/Collectors (Beelzebumon X drawn by As' Maria is so amazing), we'd get these amazing artworks but I cannot say for redesigns. But at least we can get all sweet artworks in the future...

*Mumbles* Why Panjyamon just got the staff not the whole appearance like MetalGreymon (Virus) X did.......

Now I wait super impatiently for official art of Vamdemon X
You are not alone. He looks amazing and I can definitely notice the Castlevania like elements. But I’m highly anticipating MetalGreymon (viral) X and BlackAgumon. The former getting a complete redesign is a huge surprise, while I’m a sucker for the latter.

Only Lady D is left?

Those waifus catch my eye more ;) lol

from that Survive pic, Diatrymon, Biyomon, and Gazimon are new for it. That boosts us to 14 known Digimon of the "around 100". I wonder how many of those characters will be important. That purple hair guy at least through the power of anime hair. that old guy must've seen someone get murdered or something, he seems pretty shocked.

as for the X forms, myotismon looks pretty cool and I'm pleasantly surprised they didnt just recolour

I hope they do more X-Antibody Digimon. Maybe they will finish the Adventure X-Antibody next issue. There are 3 rookies that have not shown in the form yet.

I like the updated version of the Survive key art with more characters added. Hope we get a nice big clean version of that.
