Bandai Launches Digimon Game Community Website
If you're a Digimon fan that wants to better interact with the worldwide Digimon community, you're in luck. Publisher Bandai Namco has opened a Japanese community website complete with a bulletin board where members can interact with others in the community. On top of that, there is a Q&A section of the website where fans can directly ask developers questions and make requests for future games.
Registration for the Digimon Community website is free, although most pages are restricted to registered users (Note that registration for an account is in English, but the website itself is in Japanese). Those interested in joining must set their region to Asia and country to Japan when registering if they want access to all of the members-only pages. Once logged in, users can even hatch their own Digimon partner from a Digi-egg by gaining experience points by interacting with the community.
The website also features an exclusive interview with Kenji Watanabe, a Digimon designer who has been in charge of character design since the release of the original Digimon virtual pet toy in 1997. It is currently unknown if the website will support other languages in the future.
The latest Digimon video game, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory will release in Japan on PlayStation 4 and Vita on December 14 before coming to North America and Europe sometime in early 2018.
