Digimon received a bunch of news at this year’s Anime Expo. First up, it was announced that Tomohisa Taguchi will be directing the Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna anime movie. Taguchi is best known for directing the four-part Persona 3 movie series, Kino’s Journey-The Beautiful World, and Twin Star Exorcists.

Toei Animation released a teaser video for the movie which you can see below. A release date for the film has not yet been set.


Next up, Bandai Namco announced that Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition, will be released on October 18, 2020. The game will be released on the Nintendo Switch and the PC via Steam.

Wikipedia describes the plot of the game as follows:

The premise is that the player assumes the role of either Takumi Aiba (相羽 タクミ Aiba Takumi) (male) or Ami Aiba (相羽 アミ Aiba Ami) (female), a Japanese amateur hacker. While Aiba is hanging out in a chatroom, a hacker infiltrates it and leaves a message telling the members within to log into Cyberspace EDEN, a popular physical-interaction cyberspace network, to receive a “wonderful present.” Although most of the room members declare it to be too suspicious to involve in, Aiba, along with users “Akkino” and “Blue Box” decide to look into it. Aiba meets them the next day as arranged in Kowloon, a hacker-infested area of EDEN, where they introduce themselves as Nokia Shiramine and Arata Sanada; shortly after, the three of them are given the “Digimon Capture” by the unknown hacker and locked into Kowloon. While searching for an exit, Aiba runs into a hacker named Yuugo, the leader of the hacker team Zaxon who resembles a rumored “white boy ghost” said to have been sighted around EDEN, who teaches them how to use their Digimon Capture and reveals that Arata is, in fact, a skilled hacker. Shortly afterward, Aiba, Nokia, and Arata run into a mysterious creature that attacks them, and although Arata manages to hack open a way out for them, the creature grabs onto Aiba’s leg and corrupts their logout process.

A trailer for the game was shown at the panel which you can view below:


Finally, as a bit of a quick tidbit announcement, it was announced by Bandai Namco that the Digimon Survive RPG game has, unfortunately, been delayed until an unknown date in 2020. The game is still slated to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
