Day One DLC grants some exclusive items and characters in February.

BAINDAI NAMCO have been in touch to finally let EU gamers know when they can get their hands on the eagerly anticipated Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, and we don’t have long to wait – it’ll be released on February 5th, three days after our North American readers.

Set somewhere in the future, the lines between real and digital worlds have become blurred and logging onto cyberspace is part of everyday life. A teenager encounters a mysterious hacker in a chance encounter, which leads to a “monumental adventure.”

Our press release tells us the you will be scanning, raising and training your faithful companions to battle by your side against many criminal hackers.

Buying the game on day one will get you some exclusive items: including the Agumon “Hero” Costumes and BlackGabumon, along with Beelzebumon and Cherubion.

It’s not clear in our EU press release whether the complete list of content is the same as indicated in Kyle’s post for NA gamers, and I’ve reached out to BANDAI NAMCO to clarify.

    Sure wish it wasn’t digital only. Oh well.

    I’m still mad about them not giving a retail release for Vita, the platform the game was originally made for. They are a big publisher, they sure as hell have the resources to give this game a proper retail release, they just don’t want to do it even though they could utilize a similar pre-order campaign that many other smaller publishers have done in recent years for their physical releases. I’m sure as hell that if they would hold such a campaign, it would be a success with flying colours seeing how active and supporting the Operation Decode participants have been.

    I’m so freaking angry and disappointed about this, and I want to channel all that frustration to try to make them understand how there’s a demand for a retail Vita release. Giving a proper retail release for a PS4 port, to a console with 500GB hard drive space at minimum right out of the box, versus Vita with its expensive as hell memory cards that are 64GB in size at maximum, the digital-only treatment for Vita isn’t just backwards and messed up, it’s flat out consumer-hostile.

    If any of you who are reading this agree, please, reach out to Namco Bandai’s social media channels and let them know. This is literally the only thing that’s missing from a fan-campaigned game localization dream come true.
