We learn from Producers Kazumasa Habu and Katsuaki Tsuzuki that the game includes a “drama part” in which the story unfolds and a “battle part” in which there is plenty of combat against monsters.
In the drama part, it’s possible to make choices in order to survive, and to explore the environment around the plater. In the battle part, the combat happens with traditional turns, and energy can be spent to evolve the Digimon.
The videos below show both parts from the PS4 version. First, we see the drama part, and then we move on to battle. You can also check out the slides showcased during the presentation, including a few images.
The game will be released in Japan for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in 2019.
