Get to know these two troublemakers ahead of Digimon Survive's (eventual) release date.

It’s been a little while since we had any fresh Digimon Survive news, but Bandai Namco recently published another character snapshot (translated by Gematsu). This time, it’s all about the violent, headstrong delinquent Kaito Shinonome and his role in the tactical digital-monster spinoff.

Kaito is a ruffian with a heart. He has a strong sense of justice and will do anything for his little sister, including thrashing a group of kids who were relentlessly teasing her. Unfortunately for Kaito, his short temper often lands him into trouble, especially when he finds himself transported to a new world.

In an effort to stop his sister from exploring the mysterious shrine, he instead goes with the protagonist and a group of others. Kaito’s darker side often explodes to the surface thanks to the stress this new world causes, but he’s not alone.

Enter Dracmon. This trouble-loving Digimon helps cool Kaito down and encourages him to think things through, when Kaito is in danger of losing his temper. Even still, Dracmon tries to maintain a healthy distance from Kaito — just in case.

While we still don’t know when Digimon Survive‘s release date is for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, this latest character spotlight is helping round out what we do know so far. Last time, we met Shuuji and Lopmon, and before that, Bandai showed off Saki Kimijuma and her Digi-partner Floramon.

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Digimon Survive news as it develops.
