Although the latest installment in the Digimon franchise has been delayed to 2020, there’s still some good news: we can now watch the opening to Digimon Survive.
The video originally debuted at Anime Expo, and it has now been released to the public by publisher Bandai Namco. It’s beautifully animated, and it gives viewers a look at the game’s colorful cast.
Digimon Survive tells the story of a group of students who get lost during a camping trip and, as Digimon stories tend to go, are transported to a strange and unfamiliar world. The isolated setting and eerie tone of Survive looks like a departure from more recent games in the series, which were comparatively lighthearted.
The Digimon games series has had something of a renaissance lately. The popularity of the series had ostensibly been waning in the west in recent years, but that appears to have changed with the launches of the excellent Cyber Sleuth and Next Order. Here’s hoping Survive maintains its predecessors’ high standards.
Digimon Survive is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in 2020.
