Over on their Facebook, Bandai-Namco Play put up a decent bit of information that answers a bit about the Vital Hero (the same info was on Twitter, but heavily abridged), but does bring up a few new questions...
Digimon Fans are you ready for the US version of Vital Bracelet?!
This new band is programed based on Digivice V, comes equipped with sleep mode, sensor improvement, multiple Digimon storage in band, is compatible with the app, has exclusive Dim card in blue band, and all the Dim card sets have different evolution patterns that you can't find in the Japan Dim cards.
Pre-order Vital Hero on Amazon today and get ready to train and battle your Digimon like never before!
Vital Hero is exclusive to the US and compatible with your Japan Vital Bracelet Dim cards, but the language will show up in Japanese vs English in our US bands and Dim cards. Your digital monster joins you as you complete missions and physical activities using a vital monitor link, allowing you to evolve, earn trophies, and battle your opponents. Two colors are launching now: Black and Blue, with Pulsemon in the black band and Gabumon in the blue band. We know you’ve been asking for the next evolution of play for Digimon, and this is it! Battle, evolve, train, and compete against your friends with Vital Hero.
But wait, there is more 6 additional Dim cards in sets of 2 are up for grabs to round out your Vital Hero Digimon collection
So the Hero itself uses the Digivice V programming with the quality of life improvements, which is what everyone hoped.
The mention of all Dim sets having different evolution paths will be interesting to see if that is accurate, or if they meant the 'new' Dim Cards, rather than the rerelease of the Japanese ones.
It also reiterates what had been mentioned by staff on social media, Japanese Dim Cards will work.
It also confirms a third color won't pop up immediately with the Dinosaur Roar Dim Card, so we'll see where that pops up.
The Vital Hero and 3 first Dim Card sets is scheduled to release on July 21st.
More to come!
