Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – PS4, Vita
Digimon in general has a a bit in common with Persona, and Cyber Sleuth is clearly inspired by the popular JRPG series. With a bright and vibrant art style, you assume the role of an amateur hacker who discovers the ability to battle and capture Digimon.
Throughout the game you have to hop between the real world and the Digital world, exploring dungeons in a similar manner to something like Persona 4. Additionally, there’s a deep and complex system for capturing and evolving Digimon, letting you craft your team from a selection of monsters from the beginning of the series. It’s through this blend of real world exploration and sidequesting, and Digital world battling and dungeon crawling that Cyber Sleuth evokes Persona. However, it doesn’t contain the same level of character development and time management that Atlus’ series does. Still, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is a great game to pick up if you want another expansive and colorful world to explore for hours on end.
