A few Digimon Survive updates!

First up, is a new trailer. This is a relatively long one at over 6 minutes long. At the time of posting there isn't a translated version.

It's narrated by the Professor, and acts as a general game introduction, showing off basic game mechanics, characters, etc. It's probably the single biggest collection of new footage in 3ish years or so, showing off both the visual novel and SRPG gameplay & animations to a larger degree than has often been done (since most videos tended to be shorter and focus on specific mechanics.) Of not is what I think is the first look at the final version of the evolution tree screen.


Hopefully a translated version will go up without much of a wait.


The opening text screen is the folklore of the area that's been mentioned before, while the end text is about your choices deciding the evolution of 'the monster'.


In addition, we get two new characters introduced, who feature in the trailer heavily... (not to mention a new monster or two...)

Miyuki is played by Konomi Kohara, known for quite a few roles, some of the best known would be Chika from Kaguya-Sama, Cure Milky from Star Twinkle Precure, & Mina from Takagi-San.

Haru (or Hal, at a glance the spelling looks to be the same as Haru from Appmon) is played by Masami Suzuki, also known for many roles, with a few notable ones being Brass and Kikuhime in Medabots, Aisa in One Piece, & Ameria in the Slayers.


Plus...

Dengeki Online & Playstation Blog Japan put up an article with much of the same details as the video, but also showing the evo scene we've seen before, but with Tyranomon instead of Greymon.

It also mentions, that on top of the 3 evo paths with different Adult, Perfect, & Ultimate levels, there are some special evolutions that can be unlocked via secret paths.

Then, in the June 23, 2022 cover dated issue of Weekly Famitsu (which is out now in Japan) there is a look back at things introduced in the past including story, characters, game systems, and more. They will also go over new characters (the new ones from the video most likely), detail the early purchase bonus items we've heard about before, and more details.

We expect most, if not all of these, are covered by the video.



And last up...

Treasure Island Ichinomiya in Ichinomiya City has posted a photo on social media of their Digimon Survive display.

Nothing specifically new, just a nice display for the game.




Earlier we got a look at the US boxart and pre-order bonus items.


Digimon Survive is out July 28th in Japan and July 29th worldwide.

So awesome! The game actually looks incredible! The animations are really nice and cheerful and the background art is gorgeous. SO much to unpack here!

Okay, so first of all, new Digimon introduced:
Gomamon
Tyrannomon
Piyomon?
Patamon
Tyrannomon
Sanloupmon
Huanglongmon
Renamon
Mermaidiamon.

Next, not Digimon but still new:
Some weird futuristic orb thing. Looks fightable.
Weird man in Daemon-like Cloak. (I'm gonna call him G-san from now on. (Gobuki-san))

Nothing amazing, but still awesome. Also, that "Beast" they were feeding the girl to definetely looks like Huanglongmon. Same amount of glowing red eyes and Head shape. Plus, we have confirmation of one of the Holy Beasts. I'm betting it's Huanglongmon.

Now, the Old man seems to be holding onto a Fangmon. And we coincidentally see a Fangmon on the VN screen. And the mysterious Boy and Girl are accompanied by a Gaurumon and a Monzeamon (Omegamon anyone?). Maybe they are their partners, but don't evolve or have a set evolution path or something. After all, there's no indication of a Digivice of any kind. Who's to say anyone can't have a partner.

Also, again. Those Portraits are so gorgeous. I adore them so much. So much better than Pokemon models. (Yeah, I know it's not fair to compare things to Pokemon, but it's true.) And the Frog things are so creepy in VN portrait mode, holy shit.

Tyrannomon looks confident, smug and proud. I want him.

It also mentions, that on top of the 3 evo paths with different Adult, Perfect, & Ultimate levels, there are some special evolutions that can be unlocked via secret paths.
Okay, this is also interesting. We knew about the three paths, but the special evolutions are intersting. Maybe Agumon will evolve differently depending on if you meet certain conditions ala Digimon World. Maybe theres one special evolution per Digimon, and the rest get some too.

Okay, now bad things.

There's still no indication of Branching evo lines for others. I really hope this isn't the case, but I'm warming up to the concept

Secondly, that scene where Ryu is crouching next to Cyclonmon don't seem to have Kunemon in it. I swear, if you can kill the Digimon but not the human, I'll be insanely pissed. Chances are, the human will remind you of the fact that their partner is dead over and over again. It's like Juri, but more annoying.

Actually there is. You can see that Sangloupmon can evolve into two different ultimate Digimon

oh! Tyrannomon being an evolution is cool but way more surprising: Greymon is not a scripted required first evolution.
I was definitely not expecting that!

This has me pretty interested, since I was under the assumption branching evolutions were static (You unlock tyrannomon or greymon as champion, etc). I get the feeling the alternate ultimate level might be a maxing social link kind of thing, where you will get to choose between both in the late game while Agumon doesn't necesarily get all the lines available at once

Sounds like Huanglongmon could be the final boss in the game or one of since there multiple endings.

Made me really happy to see Tyrannomon there, not gonna lie. Was actually an idea I had tossing around on whether or not Agumon would have Greymon as a scripted evo. On one hand, it seeming to be relatively early in the game rose some questions on how influential your choices would be early on, and we had only seen Greymon shown in that scene up to that point. On the other hand, it's Greymon, and it'd naturally get first billing in all the trailers due to it's marketability, and it'd also be really cool to see that cutscene change based on your early choices, as it'd be a great highlight of one of Survive's big themes, being player choice, in action.

So yeah, neat to see that pan out well, plus it's always nice to see Tyrannomon show up as it's a personal favorite. Gonna hope Tuskmon ends up as the Virus Champion given that's a bit more interesting than defaulting to DarkTyrannomon.

Sounds like the main villain is the "Master". Now the question is if Master is that Huanglongmon or whatever in the painting, or if it's something else completely.

Judging by Haru and Miyuki's clothes, I think they might have been in the Digital World for decades without aging. Anyone here knows at what time period those clothes were common? I keep thinking 1950's or 1960's but I don't know exactly and I still get the feeling it could be even older than that. All I know for sure is this style can't be older than the Taishō era.

The text at the start of the trailer is said to be an excerpt of a book titled "The Kemonogami Legend" by Minase Akiharu (水無瀬 明春). That could be the Professor's real name.

So I see no one mentioned that screenshot in the PSN blog that shows the Professor is a playable character. As in, he actually fights during battle and s a Free attribute "Digimon".

Yes! Agumon becoming Tyrannomon as the Digigods intended!

If I don't get Tyrannomon by the time of Agumon's first evolution, I'm restarting the game.

That anime trailer we got years ago that they've reused a bunch of times since had Miyuki seem like a ghost with people referring to her as the Ghost Girl etc for years so tbh my guess is that she's a ghost and she and her brother died decades ago
