But remember that when the V2 came out, there were 4 separate version of the VB, V1, V2, the Kamen Rider one and the Ultraman one. Neither the Kamen Rider nor Ultraman versions have English releases, and if this is the V2, than neither does the V1, so it makes sense they wouldn't be mentioned... Hrrrm. So it's amusing that the word 'Digimon' only appears in the copyright jargon. Wouldn't you want that on the box if you wanted fans to recognize it in the store? Even the extended 'Digital Monster' has been shoved into a corner on the front.
Everything about this feels oddly marketed specifically outside of the core fanbase. Seems like Bandai is hoping to draw in older fans who recognize the art and casual non-fans looking to try something new and who might otherwise dismiss it if 'Digimon' were on the box. They know the people who care most about the franchise are already aware of the VB/Digivice V. The tweet might state this is for Digimon fans, but it really just feels like it isn't.
And if this is V1... I mean... let's pray they at least had the brains to at least fix the sensor to work with more than one skin tone.
I agree, the removal of "digimon" is odd.
And it's a V1 Vital Bracelet. On the dim packaging you can see that the dims can only connect with one Vital Hero. Whereas in the case of the Digivice V dims could connect to 3 individual devices.
