BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe reveals more information about the story of Digimon Survive - the new adventure/tactical RPG for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC Digital.
The story takes place during an extracurricular camp over the summer. The main character, Takuma, and his two high school friends, Aoi and Minoru, go to an infamous local shrine, to learn more about its mysterious legend: the tale of Kemonogami.
While exploring the shrine, Takuma meets a pink monster - Koromon. Before they can get acquainted, piercing screams fill the air. Rushing towards them, Takuma and Koromon come across a group of monsters attacking Takuma’s classmates. As Takuma tries to save them, Koromon transforms into Agumon; and together they manage to scare the monsters away. The immediate threat gone, they soon realise they are far from safe, finding themselves transported to a strange new world.
New characters revealed:
- Aoi Shibuya: Quiet, serious and discreet, she remains calm in any situation. As the class representative, she is used to coping with her classmates’ unreasonable requests. The eldest of the group, she is also in charge of the food and base camp.
- Minoru Hyuga: The light-hearted optimist, and joker of the class. He strengthens the group with his easy-going and cheerful personality. Unfortunately, his carelessness often gets him into trouble.
- Labromon: A beast-type, dog-like monster, Labromon gets straight to the point when she talks. Balancing each other personalities, she and Aoi will support each other through the adventure.
- Falcomon: A bird-type monster from the High Mountains. He is a strong and firm character and supports Minoru’s sloppiness. However, he can sometimes be even clumsier than Minoru himself.
