Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth is out today
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Digimon series, Bandai Namco has finally released Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth in North America. Available today on the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, GameStop will have physical copies, but only for the PS4 version. Meanwhile, the PS Vita version will only be available digitally.
Both versions of the game will be available on the PlayStation store. Those that pre-ordered the PlayStation 4 version from GameStop will receive black versions of Agumon and Gabumon, along with multiple attires for Agumon and two exclusive Digimon: Cherubimon and Beelzebumon. The game will release on February 5th in Europe.
Released earlier in Japan, fans were clamoring for a worldwide release due to the pleasantly surprising scores. Reviews in Japan have gone so far as to call it the best Digimon game that's released in a while. The game has classic turn-based combat, which old-school JRPG fans will no doubt enjoy. Players can also choose between a female or male protagonist, then progress through a story about saving the world from corrupt Digimon. Similar to Pokemon, Digimon can be recruited into the player's party by scanning them.
Overall, this looks like a solid pickup for PS Vita fans looking for a JRPG to tide them over until Persona 5 comes out later this year.
