A tweet from Bandai America gives us some new updates on the US release of the Digimon X, with one or two potential surprises...
They mention 107 Digimon to train and battle. As I recall this doesn't quite line up with the Digimon X v1 Black/White from Japan, so whether this is a mistake or they are adding some Digimon, it'll be interesting to see (or just a fuzzy way of doing the math.)
The only other detail that 'might' be seen as curious is mention training 3 Digimon at the same time. The X series had the preserve system, where you could 'pause' two Digimon and swap them in or out as you want with an active Digimon, which is what this is likely referring to.
Pre-orders for the Digimon X are currently open with a scheduled release day of July 15th: (affiliate links)
Digimon X White & Blue
Digimon X Green & Blue
Digimon X Black & Red
Digimon X Purple & Red
Previous details can be found here, here, and here.
Update- From a press release...
The packaging is nice clear images, although doesn't appear to be different from what they showed at DigiNavi.
The actual press details don't 'quite' provide any new details, minus that the July date listed on Amazon is apparently wrong, and they intend to launch in October.
Based on the Original Digivice that started it all, this new device is back and equipped with tons of new features and evolutions that come in a variety of different colors. Users can now hatch, raise, feed, and train their digital monster for the ultimate monster match, a showdown between one Digimon and another! These devices connect to each other (and previous versions) to allow users to compete with whoever challenges! The Digimon X has a variety of new features like the Random Attack Generator, New Quest mode, Digimon facial expressions and so much more! Brace yourself for hours of fun and tons of Digimon to battle with!
Fans can be first to order Digimon X with pre-sales launching online on April 30 on Amazon, with product hitting store shelves in October 2021.
"We're so excited to bring this new device to the North American market!" said Cisco Maldonado, Senior Director – Brand Strategy, Bandai America. "Fans of Digimon have been asking for Digimon X (quite vigorously- I may add) for a while and I'm pleased we are able to make it happen."
