While everyone is busy getting their ARG on and catching cute little monsters with their smartphones, Bandai Namco is getting ready to give people yet another dose of their own cute little fighting monsters, this time in a more traditional format via the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters. For people who want to see it in action first before deciding if it’s worth their time (spoilers: it is!), Bamco has released a promo video that serves as a sneak peek and teaser to the upcoming “deck battle RPG:”
Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters takes its name from the special chips given to players in the game, which can be scanned in order to receive “Appmon” that are then “Applinked” with other Appmon in order to trigger the franchise’s famed Digivolutions. The game is supported by a multiplatform campaign that will see an anime series and special toy device released as well.
