What do you hope for in the new Digimon Story game?

I think a new feature for the game is in order; the Digimon Hopper. It works like Pokémon’s transfer features from the past, allowing you to bring over your Digimon from Cyber Sleuth and Hackers Memory. Multiple difficulty settings and rewards for playing on hard would tie into this; playing on the hard mode allows you to import older Digimon right away.

Again, more species would be appreciated.
wouldn't transferring them over make more sense on easy than hard?

Any difficulty can transfer them over. Hard just has more difficult wild encounters and bosses to make up for the ability to transfer them over from the start. I’d also like to see some more optional post-game bosses to encounter, even without much story relevance.

Some kind of retrocompatibility would be nice. Transfering digimon from CS/HM and such.

Actual variation of scenery and a decent trip to the Digital World. EDEN's blue squares got boring fast in Cyber Sleuth.

Something that didn't click with me in both CS/HM was the whole "having to scan Digimon multiple times in order to get them". While it could have been worse (i.e a Negotiation mechanic like SMT), I still would've preferred a more simplistic gotta catch 'em all sorta thing.

Meanwhile, I was re-watching some Digimon Hunters recently and I noticed that the whole "Hunting" aspect was poorly explored (among other things) and it made me think, what if they tried to incorporate that idea into a Story game proper? Have a bunch of kids end up in the Digital World and they treat it like a game of Pokémon where they try to catch all the Digimon at first, something goes horribly wrong and they learn some life lessons and become true "Hunters" that help protect the Digital World by tracking down bad guys.

Just a little something I was mulling over, trying to better integrate story and gameplay mechanics.

I can act more modest about it but to be blunt, an Olympos XII focused plot 👀
Also, unite the entire Bancho team!

What I wouldn't mind seeing is....
1) Choose male or female character
2) A simple character creator with different faces and hairstyles and colors.
3) Clothing stores
4) All spirit Digimon available really want Fairymon.
5) Keep the adult tone of Cyber Sleuth.
6) Would like to visit the Digital World more like Sewers , Snowy mountains , Jungles , Digimon Villages and so on.
7) All Armour Digimon
8) Player choices that slightly effect missions and story rewards.
9) Some Mini games
10) When attacks hit the enemy Id actually like to see it properly not just a tiny hit spark.

What I think would be fun is a X-Antibody mechanic, where the antibody itself is a collectable item, and it can be used to side evolve a digimon to his X counterpart or during evolution. This would include an X-Eraser for the reverse effect.

A version of this could be used for the Spirits, perheaps with each element being a singular item with levels, so it could go 1->2->3 for Human->Beast->Fusion, being lv3 in the five corresponding elements for each Transcedent form and on all ten for Susanoomon. It would also allow both Ultimates forms to be used at the first Ultimate tier (unless the system supported 3 Ultimate tiers, then this could be a straight line).

Been reading up on some of the other factions involved in the Digital World and both the D-Brigade and the Crack Team both sound like they could make very interesting antagonistic groups in a Story game. Plus you've already got most of the involved Digimon in game as of Hacker's Memory so I say go for it. :)
