The year 2020 took a heavy toll on a number of industries and new events and video game development was hardly immune from such impacts. The entire world has been a bit on hold due to coronavirus, and although some businesses thrived (retail, online shopping, etc.), others suffered greatly since they were neither deemed essential nor could they be operated effectively solely through online meetings. Numerous games saw a halt in development and few new games were released in 2020 as a result.
One of the games that is still awaiting its release is Digimon Survive, a promising and new tactical RPG that was set to revolutionize the world of Digimon itself. This was not the first delay the game had seen – it was originally slated to hit stores in 2019 before being pushed for undisclosed reasons. Game producer Kazumasa Habu noted in a press release: “We had originally planned to launch Digimon Survive in 2020, but current world events have shifted our development timing and we have made the difficult decision to push Digimon Survive’s launch to 2021.”
Accordingly, for the time being, this review will go over the speculative details of the game and ultimately what can be expected from its release.
Survive will be released as an entirely new series that stands alone from other entries. In it, you’ll be able to assume the role of Takuma Momozuka and a group of friends on spring break at a camp focused on historical research of the region. Though each game is focused on training and maintaining your team of Digimon, Survive sees these protagonists sent to another world where they must rely on their wit, strength, and cunning in order to make it out alive.
Of course, this will be done with the help of the roster of 100 Digimon slated to be in this title. For a Digimon game, this is a slightly smaller number to choose from, however, the other gameplay elements appear to offer a different experience entirely than previous games have.
One of the most prominent aspects of Survive is that the story will have various endings, choices, and methods of story progression that will constantly impact the flow of the game. Like many other games today, choices will play a large role in how your game plays out and it can have some serious impacts – even leading to the deaths of some characters if you chose ‘poorly’. I’m looking forward to seeing how well this system is implemented – games like Life is Strange or Detroit: Become Human were both able to capture the meaningfulness of each choice.
Others, like Mass Effect 3 (which pains me to say since everything up til the very end actually was meaningful, a lot of choices from the first game appeared in 3) were a bit lackluster when it came to the actual end.
Only time will tell, but the story and development path for this title looks promising and seems like it will have some impactful stories to tell.
While we’re still waiting for a full release, the game looks promising so far and should prove to be a milestone in the Digimon series.
