The Latest Digimon World: Next Order Trailer is Stunning

Bandai Namco has shared the latest trailer for Digimon World: Next Order at this year’s Tokyo Game Show.

Featured above, the new trailer shows off various aspects of the Digimon adventure PS Vita game, including proper care of your Digimon, the day and night cycle, dialogue, and of course – the battles.

Digimon World: Next Order is launching in Japan sometime next year, while Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is launching for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in North America and Europe sometime next year.

    Main reason there is a lack of post game content in the newer ones is because he’s pandering to the casual players that beat the elite four and never touch the optional content.

    Casual players never touch or beat Battle Frontier because it’s too hard/they don’t care? Better cut it, who cares about the large portion of the player base that wants it.


    This doesn’t even cover all the good improvements that BW/B2W2 had that they cut, like challenge mode and post game level re-scaling.

    You do know they usually add the things you mentioned in re-releases right?
    Plus they made the battle maison less painful than the Battle Tower in terms of the cost of prizes and the 6th gen added plenty of stuff for the hardcore breeder like the Friend Safari, Extra day care center. Hell, even the shape of the area is made for breeders.
    I do hope they do put more Battle Frontier style content in the Zygarde game or if they aren’t touching the Battle Frontier, add way more meat to the story. Episode Delta was OK, but something more integrated to the initial journey would be great.

    Your statement sounds really hyperbolic.

    “You do know they usually add the things you mentioned in re-releases right?”

    Apparently that’s not the case for OR/AS.

    I’ll wait to see how Z turns out. But it’s anything how X/Y/OR/AS turned out, I’ll just stick to PMD to get my pokemon fix.

    Well I’m guessing they wanted it to be like FRLG back in the third game, which didn’t add too much to the new game, but then they added a lot of content for Emerald.

  11. No_Good_Names_Ever

    They really need to make a WII U game that melds the 3 different types they made over the years but Gamefreak is either too lazy or thinks it wouldn’t be worth it. I wonder if the current head will force Gamefreak to pop something out to help sell consoles.

  15. Zombie_Barioth
    September 22, 2015 at 4:13 am

    Uh, they never made 3 different types, seeing as Game Freak doesn’t nor ever did make anything outside of the mainline series.

    No idea how the chain of command works for spin-offs, but I seriously doubt the new President of Nintendo can force them to do anything. Game Freak isn’t 2nd-party, they’re independent.

  16. No_Good_Names_Ever

    Battle Revolution
    XD or whatever the best of the story RPGs are
    All of their best aspects fused together.

    As far as I know, Nintendo owns the Pokemon IP so they should be able to push them towards whatever

    Yeeeeah… I want to say I hope Yokai Watch is good, but given that it’s clear some of the decisions made between Gen V and VI were inspired by Level-5 being taken more seriously as competition (you can see it in the character designs), I’m not so confident about that one.

    Maybe if SE or Capcom took their DQ/MH spinoffs more seriously.

  19. Misogynerd
    September 22, 2015 at 10:29 am

    Game Freak is a relatively small studio, they can’t handle anything bigger than the current size they have. Plus really them having to expand or outsource a game that will only sell around Colosseum numbers (2.5~ million approx) won’t really help the Wii U that much.
    I really don’t think Pokemon at home works at all, especially with how Japanese gamers are today, who want to have their game everywhere at any time.

  20. Nagato

    And a wonderful job they did with G6 being such a small size!
    Sounds like they made their money back and more.
    Doesn’t worldwide numbers dwarf Japanese?

  23. Misogynerd
    September 22, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    Yes. Game Freak aren’t the best programmers to be honest, remember the original Diamond and Pearl? They had to make a massive overhaul for the 6th gen what with making 721+ models for all the Pokemon and moving to a 3D engine. Plus they did that while releasing a yearly game since 2009.
    Still, Game Freak has 81 members, while games like Mario 3D world are made by at least a 100. That’s why I dislike all the angry people at Gen 6, there were plenty of real world limitations and I still think they delivered a great game.

    Pokemon still a lot of revenue in Japan, the movies make more than Studio Ghibli movies, the anime is still huge, and the trading feature is catered towards Japanese audiences and is emblematic. There is no reason for them to cater to the west and well, Gen 5 and 6 were made due to the American and French fans.

  24. No_Good_Names_Ever
    September 22, 2015 at 3:34 pm

    I would’ve thought the same about G6 if it wasn’t for the shit they did with ORAS. If they can’t handle it anymore, they should get more people on board instead of being lazy bastards. G6 was only a great game to the meta community, the story was shit, the world was uninteresting, the gym leaders were the worst they’ve ever made, there was no difficulty, the rivals were all yes men who fought like newborns, there was no real post game, they’re still scrapping good ideas, Megas and alt universe were major cop outs, Inverse battles were virtually non existent, Sky Battles excluded Pokemon that can Fly, if you don’t care about making strong Pokemon to battle other people, it was shiiiiiiiiiit.

  25. Misogynerd
    September 22, 2015 at 4:11 pm

    I don’t think Game Freak is lazy or should really grow to much more than 81-100 people. I don’t want every company to be a huge corporation making bland wide appealing games to justify their own existence.
    That being siad I do agree with the criticisms againt the characetrs and difficulty (Doesn’t help they give you 4 good pokemon in the story and 2 with mega forms) and lack of post game, but I still think Lumiose city, customization, Mega Evolutions, the new Pokemon, the battle rebalancing, and other new features far outweigh the negative, although I will admit I do like competitive Pokemon and didn’t care much for the Black and White story line.

  26. No_Good_Names_Ever
    September 22, 2015 at 5:24 pm

    “bland wide appealing games to justify their own existence.”
    …But that’s what they’re doing now and they are lazy, they’ve pretty much been recycling the same formula and never keeping stuff people enjoy around.

    Lumiose city was busted on arrival and wasn’t much of anything beyond what we already got in past mall cities, they took Customization out of ORAS and will likely never use it again outside of a G6 remake, Mega Evolutions shoulda just been evolutions and retuning stats instead of just popping in something that makes it even easier to be a heavy handed tank to win, I don’t use the new Pokemon against a gen unless I can’t find 3 or 5 of them I like, rebalancing did shit for the game like all the other meta community shit, none of that outweighs anything.

  27. Misogynerd
    September 22, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    I think Game Freak isn’t lazy, you mentioned tons of things they added, and sure they may not work or be all that important, but they keep tweaking and chaging enough things that even someone like me who started in the first generation can still find it fresh. That being said, I’m not as bothered as other people about iterative franchises (might be because I’m a programmer and well that’s how programs work, you never get it right at first).

    I do think they did fix many of the overpowered stuff from last gens like the weather wars and the Dragon type. Megas are more fit for double battles, which is the official standard. Some of them can still be pretty strong, but they are way more manageable.

    I did mention the new Pokemon, right? I like pretty much all of them, unlike Gen 3-5 where I like around half of them. They didn’t introduce that many because well, they already had a large task making new models for the old Pokemon.

    I still think people are too hasty to condemn the series for changing/not changing enough and that most of the gen 6 hate is due to not knowing how gen 7 is going to be, what new things will remain, etc.

    Still, again I do like Gen 6 over all the others because of the ease of breeding the best Pokemon possible and I liked stuff like the Friend Safari, Battle Chateau, Mega Evolutions, New Breeding Mechanics, Less Weather Wars, Less Dragon Domination, and some of the new ideas seem like great building points for improvement.

    Interesting you get two digimon now. A lot of features in digimon world 1 would clash (some wild digimon would run away based on your digimon’s type; data, virus or vaccine, and different Digimon sleep at different times).

    Still very curious about this title.

  29. No_Good_Names_Ever
    September 22, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    I started with the first gen too and they are lazy, shit got stale with G2, then I quit with G3, came back with G5, only got G6 to defend my cred. They never really invest much in a story the world doesn’t pull you in especially when everyone keeps saying the same recycled thing about how they love Pokemon or a bunch of tutorial crap. The hate isn’t tied to the future, most people these days only think in the here and now and right now it’s a weak entry whose only worth is towards competitive battling and G1ers who became cat ladies. The Battle Chateau and the Battle Subway are both inferior to the Battle Frontier, no soul and you have to worry about the game rigging the odds against you (if what I’ve heard is right though I have seen shit like it happen fist hand).

  30. Misogynerd
    September 22, 2015 at 11:22 pm

    So you don’t even like Pokemon that much, from what I can infer, since you thought Gen II was stale? I’m more concentrated on the game play and I think it’s gotten better and better in each installment, especially since Gen IV. I do find something more nostalgic and pretty exhilarating about having the same structure, only going and exploring with different Pokemon. It’s like rewatching a movie and noticing different details and touches the creators put in.

    I do find the story utterly unimportant in Pokemon. I don’t think X and Y really ended up serving people who liked Gen V and people who would rather ignore it couldn’t. Maybe make it more character focused? since they cant top themselves after Gen IV what with the God pokemon and the God of Time and God of Space.

    Plus the Battle Frontier was rigged, way more than the Battle Subway and Maison. There was a mode where you picked random Pokemon and there was one with a roulette that could screw you over easily the Brains had perfect IVs. I do think they could pretty up the current Maison and put more emphasis on the Battle modes since those are more fair than the random luck based affairs the Frontier had.

    That being said, I do think Game Freak should expand on the main quest and the capturing process, since that hasn’t really changed since Gen II and the special Pokeballs.

    Can see you preferring Digimon since they do tend to concentrate on their story lines and they go to darker places, but I still think it can come off as more childish than Pokemon.

    Still in the end, I find Gen VI the best for:
    – The improved graphics and the effort game Freak made to make over 721+ models (There’s the megas, alternate forms, gender differences).
    -More balanced gameplay, especially the nerfs towards Weather and Dragons.
    -Fun features like Poke-Amie, Super Training, Secret Bases, Wonder Trade, Soaring, Horde battles, O-Powers and DexNav.
    – Improvements to the IV and EV systems.
    – Made me like Hoenn as a region and plot line. Do hope the plot lines are more “intense” like the Delta episode except with less flying to a house, easy battle, moving on.
    – Some new great Pokemon like Aegislash, Greninja, and Hawlucha.

    So we’ll agree to disagree, I just feel that many people, especially Digimon fans, want Pokemon to be something it’s not. Plus they want a more mature version of it, which could work, but I’d think it come off as too tryhard.

  31. Zombie_Barioth
    September 23, 2015 at 3:59 am

    I got that, Game Freak never made any of them. You can thank HAL and Genius Sonority respectively.

    Nintendo only partly owns the IP, its split between them, Game Freak, Pokemon Co., and Creatures Inc. Game Freak has just as much say as they do in what goes on.

  32. timeking
    September 23, 2015 at 5:49 am

    got to disagree with the battle frontire.cant say it was rigged, each was diffcult in it own way. with the battle factory putting in a diffent situation than what you are use to by testing your skills a knowleged with diffecrt while i agree it can some be on luck it not that hard

    also perfect iv that a very wired complant you what them less difficult and more easy? in a day and age where people have played pokemon for years being on equal level and it just skill and tactics also it not that big of a deal a very good stargey can beat them.

    the battle frontire was really good at making people think and use other pokemon and tactics instead of brute forcing there way in a battle which is why pokemon need a chanllege mode for experience player

    also gen 6 had problems like it being way to easy even for a pokemon game. i can understand them wanting to keep it easy but the thing that a real slap to the face like being handed latias or latios

    i legit quit for a while because latias back thin in the original r/s/e was the first roaming pokemon i caught it was a real challege like a roaming pokemon used to be, there great stafaction in that .

    also about the challenge mode they did a great thing by giving it a hard which althought i think was still to easy for myself it was a step in the right dircention, instead of building on that they just tossed to the side

    also why aren’t you talking about the horriable slowdown in gen 6. now i can somewhat understand x/y slowdown they did a great job fully
    going into 3d but it is inexcusable in OR/AS they Are being lazy with one of the biggest problem in battle especially horde battle

    thought i got to agree on megas they really introduce something new to battle

    in the end while i did enjoy the 6th gen even x/y was good not great but that the thing, this gen is really just good and not great. hear hoping that z or what ever is really not great but a master piece

    Digimon: Cyber Sleuth looks better all the way, honestly. The protag designs are AWFUL here and the colors seem really faded instead of being as vibrant and cell-shaded like the last one. Also the combat doesn’t strike me well but that’s an aside. Visually this is poorer.

  34. GemDragonSlayer
    September 24, 2015 at 1:15 am

    I can see your point. But I gotta tell you, as somebody who played Cybersleuth (japanese import), the maps are pretty boring. The real world locations are tiny maps and aren’t connected through free roam, and everything in cyberspace looks the god dammed same. Because of that, I’m looking forward to going back to natural environment like in Digimon story redigitize, even if the animation is poorer.

    As far as the combat system, i find that there are merits to both turn based fighting, and this style (original digimon world style).
    What I’m hoping for is that they don’t include the life cycle like they did in redigitize. It’s annoying as hell to have your digimon die when you’re in a high level place and then have to wait forever to get your new Digimon strong enough to continue the story.

    That being said, I wasn’t a huge fan of cybersleuth’s stat system. There were no permanent stat gains from going back and forth between levels, like there were in the DS digimon world games.

    Ah, sorry if my negativity comes off the wrong way. :(

    Even if they did, you can’t compete with a massive thing like Pokemon which has been running around for almost two decades. Besides, let’s face it, the only reason Pokemon/ Yokai Watch managed to insert themselves so badly is because they are supported by the audience they cultivated through TV / movies / TCG~.

I would be a fool to waste my money on a console. Bandai Namco has been really good at supporting us PC gamers so I’m sure this game will come to PCs.

    I somehow ended up spotting this and while I don’t control the rules of Niche Gamer (or Siliconera) yet, he didn’t seem to be port begging by my personal standards.

    At worst, he has a platform preference and no interest in getting _____ platform. Better to encourage him with more good games on your side or alternatives that he can enjoy while you have all the Digimons.

  50. British_Otaku
    September 28, 2015 at 6:48 pm

    As a mod on another site, port begging tends to be repetitive and obnoxious cases of “Get it on PC!” while hating on other platforms. You haven’t been that bad. :P

    I don’t personally think this has a chance of coming to PC though since Bandai Namco seem to only release something on PC if they want it to release on PC in all regions (so they would have announced it for PC in Japan!). We only have a few cases of them porting games to the Xbox platform when not doing that elsewhere like One Piece Burning Blood (otherwise PlayStation exclusive – but first Xbox One Piece game ever).

    I got a post with an addendum saying “That said, Sony can fist themselves with a handgrenade for screwing the PSV on GR2” moderated for port-related crap. In comparison, posting “I hope this games comes to my platform of choice” is worse as an offense. I mean, really, what point is there in saying that? The article is about an X platform, chiming in to say “I hope that it’ll come to my platform” is along the lines of [passive] port begging, at least for my standards~.

  52. British_Otaku
    September 28, 2015 at 8:06 pm

    Interesting… I probably would have picked on it (not deleted it, but fired a response your way) for seeming aggressive while mentioning a preferred platform even if it warrants some discussion since the original game was on the Vita which isn’t dead yet even if everyone is a little concerned (I feel the same way about the Wii U but actually own one of those).

    I still think you should always go for more productive types of posts if possible, you could still say “That said, it is annoying that the PSV didn’t get this because ____ (probably stuff about how the controls worked on it or how the fanbase is there or something else relevant.

    Anyway, yes in retrospect… It is a worse offense if the poster only says things like “I wish it was on my system”, even if it isn’t capped off with something about a publisher and a handgrenade. I think I spotted this user doing the same thing in a Burning Blood thread which just popped up and I would get pretty bugged by that along with other mods.

    Passive port begging is fine as long as it isn’t hating on someone or a platform aside from being infrequent not only from the person but in the thread itself. We don’t need 100 comments from 100 people telling us about how a game should be on a platform, likewise one people doing it six times is too much if that is all they do. I think they should be redirecting their energy into a petition (hopefully not linking it too often) or to the correct social media page for the publisher.

    You are wrong actually. Bandai Namco usually never release PC games in japan. Bandai Namco has really been loving the PC platform so I believe that the Digimon games and One Piece Burning Blood are coming to PC too.

  54. British_Otaku
    September 29, 2015 at 11:55 am

    Bandai Namco rarely release PC games in Japan but Xenoverse, the Dark Souls games and the most recent Saint Seiya are examples of it happening. Just because they seem to have more PC releases doesn’t mean everything is possible, but if a game was confirmed for a PC release in Japan prior to localisation, it seems likely that it will get more platforms worldwide.

    Pirate Warriors 3 was on PC, so Burning Blood isn’t too out there but they only confirmed one extra platform (Xbox One). Digimon? Given that they just started localising Japan-first releases again, it seems too soon to expect them to make new ports out of nowhere.

    … I searched it and spotted this Neogaf thread: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1117892

    I suppose you are correct, but it seems to be a more long term plan and not something that they are forcing onto Bandai Namco who may not even let them develop for the NX (which they mentioned wanting to work on sooner than Steam) if they wanted to. Steam is probably a target for their in house titles or localisations for Japan.

    Thanks for bringing it to my attention anyway, I suppose we can expect more PC support from Spike Chunsoft whatever happens.

    But as I said this works out great for us PC gamers as they don’t have to force Bandai Namco to publish games for the PC as Bandai Namco is already in love with the PC platform. So I won’t be surprise to see One Piece: Burning Blood on PC or even Danganronpa.

    Cyber Sleuth vs Next Order… Its like the west gets a pudding cup while japan dines on chocolate cheesecake. Cyber Sleuth looks good but Next Order is better by far. The worst part is they are basically holding it hostage. If Cyber Sleuth doesn’t meet their sales expectations overseas, no cheesecake (Next Order) for us. Just pudding cups and bitter sweetness…
