Bandai Announces 20th Anniversary Digimon Device

In celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary, Bandai Namco has announced that Digimon is going back to its roots with a brand new Digimon Device in Japan.

Based off the first model of the virtual pet released in 1997, the 20th anniversarry edition includes the ability to raise two Digimon at once, Digimon from the first five versions of the game, and a brand new Digimon for the 20th anniversary named Zubamon.

Other new features include uploading Digimon online, two on two Digimon battles, and increased speed when it comes to raising the monsters. The new virtual pet is available for pre-order now in Original Brown (which includes the exclusive Agumon Digitama) and Original Grey (with Gabumon) for 3,500 yen each.
