This month’s V-Jump magazine has revealed new details about Bandai Namco Games’ upcoming PlayStation Vita Digimon title – Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth.

First on the reveals docket is the fact that Omnimon will be appearing in the game as a prominent figure. The mega level digivolution combination of Agumon and Gabumon’s final forms (WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon), Omnimon appears in dialogue scenes alongside the protagonist Nokia – a sign that her pals are going to have to make that evolutionary jump sometime during the game.

Also revealed is a new character by the name of Goro Matayoshi. Goro is a detective who is persued by malevolent hacker groups – two of which are revealed to be “Zakurin” and “Demons” by name. The leaders of these groups (Fay and Jimmy KEN, respectively) appear in the game as part of side quests that the player can choose to complete.

Lastly, it has been noted that the Digi-Farm and Digi-Lab options are set to return from previous games, and will be working “more or less” as they have before. The Digi-Farm is where Digimon can be deposited to bolster their stats with specialized training, and the Digi-Lab is a place where players can swap out their partners or control their evolution/de-evolution (or digivolution, as it’s called in-game). The lab is also hinted to be home to a familiar character, though just who it is hasn’t been revealed.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is set to release in Japan during the Spring of 2015, keep checking TVL for all your Digi-news. 🙂

    I sure hope they didn’t use that terrible Digimon battle game in a ‘testing the waters’ way to decide upon this games localization.
    Also, I read Omnimon as Om-nom-mon, and had to re-read it carefully before I got it right.

      Same here, it would be really dumb if they actually did that since they’re totally different games. Still hopeful for this coming to the states.

      it certainly feel so tho. the game is western exclusive for some reason. which also means, no Cyber Sleuth for us.
