“Set in the near future, the line between the real and digital worlds is blurred. Logging into cyberspace is part of everyday life. A harmless on-line chat spawns a chance encounter with a mysterious hacker for one teenager. Little did this teen know, this brief meeting would lead to a monumental adventure. In Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth scan, raise, and train your faithful Digimon companions to battle by your side against a group of hacker criminals. Do you have what it takes to solve this mystery?

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth delivers classic turn-based JRPG gameplay set within a brand-new Digimon adventure. Mysterious events have caused the digital world to merge with the real word, opening portals for dangerous Digimon to enter our reality intent on destroying it. Players will become cyber detectives as they cross-over between the two realities in a race to solve this diabolical digi-mystery. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth enables players to interact with over 200 Digimon: including fans favorites such as Agumon, Patamon, Gaomon. Players will scan, raise, train, and digivolve their all-star Digimon team to take on their digital adversaries as well as battle other digi-destined players online.”

Ever since the release of Digimon World on the original Playstation I’ve had a soft spot for Digimon games. They have an undeniable charm which appeals to both younger and mature audiences. I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth – we’ll have a review up for the game sometime next week. For now, you can grab it from today on Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.
