Bandai Namco Entertainment America has recently released an announcement for their plan to bring Digimon World: Next Order to the West. According to the announcement, North America will get a Playstation 4 release of the game in early 2017. Sadly, collectors might feel left out as the PS4 release will be digital-only.
Digimon World: Next Order originally came out for the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan back in March. A Vita version for the west is notably absent in the announcement, but fans may still find a way around this hurdle as the Vita release offers both Japanese and English dub.
The official press release:
Digimon World: Next Order begins when players are sucked into the Digital World to discover it is under siege by Machinedramons. Rescued by two Digimon from impending doom, players must forge forward with their Digimon partners and journey through the Digital World to discover the origins of the Machinedramon scourge and find a way back to the real world. Along the way, players will nurture and train their Digimon partners for battle as they progress through the game. Digimon World: Next Order contains over 200 Digimon for players to meet, recruit, and interact with throughout their adventure. Digimon World: Next Order will also give players the choice of playing as either a male or female protagonist and enable players to explore the Digital World with two Digimon partners for the first time in franchise history. The key to finding a way back to the real world and stopping the Digital World from total destruction at the hands of Machinedramons will lie in building strong bonds and providing effective training for each Digimon.
