Digimon Survive – Release date, box art & more

Digimon has seen an incredible revival in the past couple of years, with the introduction of the Digimon Card Game, new anime and video games. One such video game that was first announced in 2018 was Digimon Survive, which got fans excited for a very different kind of Digimon adventure. Soon after, however, news of its production went radio silent. Now, after four long years, we finally have a release date for the Digimon Survive video game as well as the first official look at the box art.

Digimon Survive will begin with a group of classmates going on a historical studies trip during spring break. During this trip, some of the students come across an ancient temple where they discover a friendly Koromon. Unfortunately, some not so friendly Digimon also turn up and begin attacking the others. At this point, they realise they have inadvertently entered a new world full of Digital Monsters.

The choices a player makes within Digimon Survive will affect the gameplay, which will lead to multiple endings depending on your decisions. Not only does this game sport some stunning graphics, designed in a 2D anime, classic SRPG style, but also has an incredible soundtrack created by Tomoki Miyoshi, the video game composer behind the popular Japanese game ‘I am Setduna’. Digimon Survive will include classic, turn-based combat, as well as plenty of text-based gameplay. Overall, the game will include over 100 Digimon spanning several eras of the Digimon franchise.

It’s no secret that Digimon Survive has had its fair share of development issues over the last couple of years. Digimon Survive was announced in 2018 with developers Witchcraft taking the reigns of its production. After running into an array of problems, which included an engine change and delays caused by Covid, a development team called Hyde was drafted in to get the game over the finish line. 

During the Digimon Con 2022 live stream event, some fans were left disappointed to learn that much of the original concept for the game had been changed with the previously promised tactic-style gameplay being reduced significantly and replaced with more text-based gameplay. With that being said, this game will have several mechanics to keep players interested and will include a story much darker and more gripping than anything we have seen before in the franchise. Bandai has commented that Digimon Survive will take 40 hours to complete but will be more like 80 to 100 to complete absolutely everything. 

During the Digimon Con 2022 live stream, Bandai also announced that there is a new Digimon Story game in development, which will have the Olympos XII as the main focus of the game. This game was being developed alongside Digimon Survive but has no release dates as of yet. 

Digimon Survive will release on July 29th, 2022 and will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. During a short update, producer Kazumasa Habu has promised fans more information and footage in the coming weeks.
