Digimon Survive is not coming anytime soon, and that sucks.
From an early age, I’ve always connected more with the Digmon series than Pokemon in general. The games have consistently held a special that oozes of nostalgia and excitement. Even still to this day no matter what Digimon game comes out, I always give it a shot even if it’s awful; so I can enjoy the experience it provides.
In the latest line of Digmon games, Digimon Survive was supposed to come out this year but is facing a delay. And the worst part is that this isn’t the first time.
Digimon Survive…not again.
Earlier today, the Digimon Games Twitter account released a post citing that the upcoming Digimon Survive game would be pushing its launch date to 2021 due to the ongoing difficulties of the Covid-19 pandemic. The message itself seems to have come directly from the producer of the game, Habu Kazumasa.
In 2019, the game initially faced its first delay to 2020 when the unfortunate announcement came about at Anime Expo 2019. Now, here we are again, going through the same routine. Hopefully, this will be the last setback we’ll have to endure because I really want to play it for myself!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with what Digimon Survive is, its a 2D tactical RPG that uses turn-based mechanics and your decisions to give you a unique experience. Your choices not only plays a tremendous impact on the story and characters but as well the Digimon’s digivolution process.
The game will also emphasise on multiple endings with real consequences following every option made, so don’t be surprised when you get characters killed off during your playthrough.
In the meantime, all we can do is wait, but thankfully Kazuma also shared that additional updates will be coming in Spring 2021. So it’s best to keep an eye out for that.
