This time around we hear about a key concept for the game, the “Beast Gods Tradition” based on the ancient rites to sacrifice children to the beast gods in the setting of the game.

The children were “spirited away” while the beast gods were worshipped within shrines. This tradition was lost with time and is long gone.

We meet the “Professor” an expert on that tradition and a teacher of folklore at a private university. He believes in the paranormal and in undiscovered phenomena that can’t be explained by science, thinking that the key to interpreting them lies within legends and literature.

Another interesting concept is that you have a “Karma value” that changes with your choices in the game across parameters like “morality,” “harmony,” and “passion.” By making choices in the first eight chapters (of 12), the story will branch into three routes associated with these parameters. A further route will also be revealed at a later time.

The hero’s partner, Agumon, will evolve according to your choices and the Karma value. There are three different evolutions, mature, complete, and ultimate, and special evolutions unlocked through the additional route.


Digimon Survive is coming for PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC via Steam, and Nintendo Switch on July 29, 2022.

A long time has passed since the announcement of the game, but after an extensive series of delays, it appears that it’s finally almost ready to release.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, below you can read an official description, directly from Bandai Namco:

“Celebrating the franchise’s 20th anniversary, Digimon Survive is a tactical RPG with a focus on storytelling and turn-based battles. Takuma Momozuka goes on a school camping trip only to find himself transported to a mysterious world full of monsters and danger. Join Takuma and Agumon as you craft your story and fight your way back home in Digimon Survive.”

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
