Bandai Namco has officially confirmed that the upcoming sequel to Digimon Story: Cyber Slueth will hit western shores later this year.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory was officially announced last month for Japan, but it has been up in the air about whether the game would hit western shores. Today, Bandai Namco has confirmed that it will indeed be released in North America, and it looks like we won’t have to wait long to get it.
Hacker’s Memory follows Keisuke Amazawa who has been accused of crimes he did not commit. Forced to dive into the digital world, Keisuke must find a way to clear his name, and protect those he loves. To do this, he’ll need to can, raise, train, and battle alongside 320 Digimon, which is a notable increase from the original’s 240 Digimon.
“The passion from Digimon fans requesting more Digimon titles in the Americas has been heard loud and clear,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “We are very excited to have players re-digitize into the Digital World for another Digi-adventure on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita later this year.”
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory will launch later in 2017 on PS4 and PS Vita. The PS Vita version will be a digital only release, and the PS4 version will be both digital and retail.
