Bandai Namco just released a new Digimon game that is available today for the PS4 and the PS Vita. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth-Hacker’s memory is a follow up on 2016’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. The game features protagonist Keisuke Amazawa, and several other characters from the franchise, as Keisuke gets falsely accused of a hacking related crime.
The newly released Digimon game will also revolve around Arukadhimon, a demonic creature that was created from an “amalgamation of data taken from other Digimon and can Digivolve through absorbing its opponent’s data.” Players will also be able to travel between the real world and the cyberspace as they journey and encounter several hacker groups including Erika Mishima, Chitose Imai, and Nokia Shiramine. The game is focused on Keisuke’s journey and help him uncover the mystery of the game. Hacker’s Memory will also allow the game to scan, raise, and train over 300 Digimon and create teams that will fight with their rivals in a turn based strategy gameplay.
Kasumi Yogi, the Associate Brand Manager at Bandai Namco said in a press release that fans of the Digimon franchise, and Japanese RPG’s in general will be in for a treat as they solve the mysteries of the game and embark on adventures as they re-enter the Digimon World. Furthermore, Yogi noted that: “Together with the game’s new storyline, and its classic turn-based battle system, players will find a highly engaging and rewarding experience awaiting them.”
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker’s Memory is available for purchase for the PS4 for $59.99. The Vita version of the game will be slightly more cheaper for $39.99. The game will also support Sony’s Cross-save feature, allowing players to transfer save files between their PS4, and PS Vita Systems.
