Bandai Namco has (finally!) announced that Digimon World: Next Order English version will get a western release! This will be the next Digimon game that got official English localization after Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. However, Next Order was previously released for PS Vita in Japan while the westerner will get this game for PS4 in digital form only.
Check out the announcement trailer below.
Below is the official description for the game, in case you didn’t know.
Digimon World: Next Order begins when players are sucked into the Digital World to discover it is under siege by Machinedramons. Rescued by two Digimon from impending doom, players must forge forward with their Digimon partners and journey through the Digital World to discover the origins of the Machinedramon scourge and find a way back to the real world. Along the way, players will nurture and train their Digimon partners for battle as they progress through the game.
Digimon World: Next Order contains over 200 Digimon for players to meet, recruit, and interact with throughout their adventure. Digimon World: Next Order will also give players the choice of playing as either a male or female protagonist and enable players to explore the Digital World with two Digimon partners for the first time in franchise history.
The key to finding a way back to the real world and stopping the Digital World from total destruction at the hands of Machinedramons will lie in building strong bonds and providing effective training for each Digimon.
According to a press release (thanks, Gematsu), the game will be distributed via digital AND physical release in US. This was also confirmed through the game’s listing in Amazon (and they even place the game’s release date as March 31, 2017. However, this should be considered as a placeholder date first since no official information from Bandai Namco, yet).
