The launch of Digimon Survive seems to be a step forward for the series in terms of timing.

Western fans may have expected a year-long wait, but that’s not the case at all.

In Digimon Survive, players are transported to a strange world filled with mysterious monsters. A dense fog surrounds the local area, and it’s down to you to figure out why that fog is there, and what it’s hiding. There are many choices to make that inform how the story plays out, as well as strategic turn-based battles involving every Digimon you can imagine.
