Digimon Adventure RPG on PSP
Namco Bandai Gamesrevealedmore information and screens for the upcoming Digimon Adventuregame for the PSP on Wednesday. The game will not only recreate every episode from the 1999 television anime series, but also the 2000 film Digimon Adventure – Bokura no War Game from director Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars,Wolf Children).
Toshiko Fujita (Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibōken‘s Dai, Chihayafuru‘s Taeko) is once again playing Taichi Yagami (Tai in the English dub), and Chika Sakamoto (Fushigi Yugi‘s Nuriko,Heartcatch Precure!‘s Kaoruko) also returns as Agumon. The director of the original anime, Hiroyuki Kakudō revealed on the game’s website that the staff has gathered together not only all of the original voice actors for the eight children and their eight corresponding Digimon, but that they have also assembled the voices of characters who were in more than one episode.
The voices of Myotismon (Ryûzaburô Ôtomo), Wizardmon (Akira Ishida), Etemon (Yasunori Masutani), Puppetmon (Etsuko Kozakura), and Piedmon (Chikao Ohtsuka) are all reprising their roles, along with the narrator,Hiroaki Hirata. Kakudō is returning as the game’s voice recording director, and the voice audio for the game is over 70 hours long.
Namco Bandai Games previously posted a teaser for the game in September. The game is the third phase of the 15th anniversary celebration of theDigimonfranchise. Namco Bandai Games plans to release the game in 2013.
Digimon Adventure’s TV series made me cry on its last episode. Specially hearing Wada Kouji’s Piano ver of Buuter-fly.
I’ve played every Digimon game on Playstation (except Re: Digitize since no English ver has been release yet ^^;;) starting from the Digimon World 1 up to the Savers: Another Mission on Playstation 2.
The picture Above reminds me of the gameplay on Playstation2 game of Digimon Savers. With a party of 3 characters on the field, player gets to command each Digimon to attack, guard, use item, run or Digivolve if the set requirements are filled.
What bugs me now is the evolution of Digimon. I hope that its not just limited to the series Digimon’s evolution and can go further such as having Omegamon’s X-antibody form just like on the Savers: another mission on Playstation2.
As a Digimon lover, I am really looking forward to this game.
