The D-Ark and card set pre-order are open at the Bandai Premium shop, so we have the last bits of early information that Bandai is giving out. Pre-order information will be at the bottom.

Lots of bits of info for Tamer's fans looking forward to this.

Some of these we knew before, but Bandai has put them all together to show what this new D-Ark will do, so I figured I'd post them all up.



They decided to start off with a trailer showing it all off.


Good looking trailer for this stuff.

The first bit is they reconfirm 5 cards will come with the D-Ark and be made of plastic.



The second bit is they show off the graphics a bit more that they are adding based on the anime.

They then show off Kuzuhamon, Sakuyamon Miko Mode, and Megidramon, who are now possible evolutions.


Image Thumbnail (custom)

Leomon and Cyberdramon can be your partner Digimon now!

You'll be able to get Grani to evolve to Dukemon Crimson Mode.

The game map has been updated to make it an adventure similar to the show. Devidramon will appear in Shinjuku, Beelzebumon will show up in the Digital World. They make a point of saying you will follow a world much like that in the anime. A secret area will appear with Mephismon, GrandLocomon, and Gulfmon. (Edit- We had previously listed the wrong Digimon due to a mistake.)


Image Thumbnail (custom)

The mighty Culu-Battle mode! You will fight 10 strong Ultimate level Digimon at random. It hints that if you beat them all you will get Culumon.


Image Thumbnail (custom)

Compatibility with other Digimon LCDs will be robust. The 15th Digivice, 15th D-3, original Digivice, original D-3, original D-Ark, and the Pendulums.


And last but not least...

Image Thumbnail (custom)

With your order you will recieve a new drawing (based on which you buy) of Dukemon or Sakuyamon by long time Digimon designer and artist Watanabe Kenji. They plan to reveal a bit more about these on August 24t.



And now on to the cards...

The Tamers card set will come with all the cards we found out about, and we finally have nice clear images of the 2 completely new cards.

And here are the previously seen cards.

And of course it also comes with Takato's tin, and a booklet.

That's a lot, and I'm sure I missed a few bits, if necessarily I will update later.

For pre-orders...

The 15th Tamers D-Ark Premium Bandai Shop Page

The 15th Tamers Cart Set Premium Bandai Shop Page

Pre-orders are open right now. 9,990 yen for the D-Ark, 6,480 yen for the card set.

Both items close pre-orders when Bandai sells out, and if they don't, they will close pre-orders on October 7th at 11pm JST.



You'll want to contact an intermediary to get these items sent to you. WtW is not affiliated with any, but here are a selection of intermediaries that have worked well for various WtWers and their friends in the past:
From Japan
Rider Proxy
Nippon-Yasan
Japan Hero


You'll want to provide your chosen intermediary with the link to the item. Just copy paste the links to the product pages for what you want and send them a message about it and they'll take care of it after they discuss pricing and their policies with you. The links embedded throughout the news article for the product items are exactly what you'll need to send them.

Some of the intermediaries have a full store front and may have the item listed, so you may want to check that first.



Some prior threads with info on the Tamers 15th products.

I tried Rider Proxy when trying to secure some card sets last night and apparently they were down for maintenance.

Update: They still are.

Rider Proxy has had long term issues with their website, which is why I link to their Facebook and NOT their website.

You can also email them at riderproxy.order@gmail.com and they will get back to you in a day or two.

The card set is no longer available on Nippon-Yasan, what gives? It just went up not too long ago and I was about to place my order...

Maybe the amount they can get is only a few and they sold out of slots?

Sigh... Now the big question: Wait for them to restock, or pre-order from elsewhere. (^.^;)

Restocking is questionable, but possible.

Addresses can only get a delivery of a limited number, so intermediaries can only get a limited amount, because (in theory) these aren't being sold to stores.

I wish I had advice on what choice to make.

Phew! It went back up for pre-order! Sadly, it looks like I'll only be able to get one D-Ark. While I love Ruki as a character, I'll have to stick to Takato's...

In addition to the wonderful new artwork for Dukemon and Sakuyamon, I must say that the new (?) art of Takato and Ruki for the 15th anniversary edition is quite nice. Might have to get one of these after all...

That would be my fault, since I placed my order at that time and noticed it changed to "Not available". But I'm very glad they got more and you were able to get it :) For the Digivice CSA, I was about to place my order it when it became unavailable the very next minute, so I know how frustrating that is.

Then we'll help you decide. What troubles you?

(And the term WtWers is awesome)

Awesome news. For me the major selling point of all the Ver.15th Digivices are the expanded maps and new enemies.

A secret area will appear with Belphemon, GrandLocomon, and maybe 'someone else'.
Didn't you mean Mephismon?

I can't read Japanese. I put up what our translator says. It was indeed late, so it's possible she misread, when I have time in a bit I'll go over it with them and double check.

Edit- Updated the post after checking.

I was telling someone else I did not have advice for them on what choice to make.

DenDenHobby still has the card set availible. If I get extra cash I'm tempted to grab one; already ordered Ruki's D-Arc, even if I'm not a Tamers fan. I have the other 2 Anniversary Digivices and it just feels wrong not to have them all XD

Oh my I'm in love with all I'm seeing (I need that poster of Sakuyamon...is absolutely gorgeous). Definitely my choice'll be Ruki's. Guys do you belive that we will have Jianlang's one at some point later? Terriermon and him have a lot of fans after all.

Now Looking forward for the D-Scanner Ver.15th (Izumi one's PLEASE! :eek:)

I'd love for the third version of the D-ark 15th to be Jian's since his is the one I'd really like to get. And it would only make sense. But I still think the third one will be Takato's gold D-ark.

As for the D-Scanner, we'll probably get Takuya and Koji's and then Kouichi's. Can't wait to find out.

They only remake some variations of digivices they've done before for the Japanese market (with the Anime colored D2 being the exception). They never made a D-Scanner with Izumi's color for the Japanese market. The closest thing you're gonna get is third version of Bandai Asia's D-Tector which had the styling of the 3rd version of the D-Scanner (though it's smaller than it's Japanese market counterpart) but did come in variations and color schemes similar to Izumi's and Tomoki's colors even though they never had it in the anime.

You've created a long explanation when there is a much shorter one, rather than making up some thing about them 'only' going with variations that have come out before (not to mention at this point, only 2 'series' of these have come out, one of which had a new design.)


They do the primary 2 pair for the initial release, and the best '3rd' they can come up with.

Frontier will likely be Takuya and Kouji for the initial 2, and if they do a 3rd later, most like Kouichi's (or Takuya's upgraded one.)


And just call it a Digivice, it isn't called a D2 that I'm aware of.
