Bandai Namco announced the release date of Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters Cyber Arena. It will launch in Japan on September 21 as a digital free-to-play title for 3DS. The game will also serve as a demo for the full version later.
The free-to-play version will let you play the opening stages of the story. It’ll also feature competitive play with friends, and a chance to get items by playing everyday. The data can be carried over to the retail version of the game. This version also allows for Appmon Chip functions.
You’ll play as second-year middle school students at Hifumigaoka Middle, and can be a little hot-blooded. Your partner, Appmon, is based of online game apps, named Onmon. Besides Onmon, there are several kinds of different Appmon that come in their own varieties, such as “Game-type,” “Social-type,” “Entertainment-type,” “System-type,” “Navigation-type,” “Tool-type,” and “Life-type.” Each one of them are based on smartphone apps. You can also encounter various Appmon by using Appli Drive, fight, and grow together as part of the game’s story.
In the previous news, we are given information about fusion between Appmon. This time, the trailer below shows combination of various Appmon to fight enemies. Fusion between two Appmon to create an even more powerful one that shares characteristics from both is available.
