In addition to the main story, there are also individual original stories that depict communication between characters. By clearing these stories, their “Character Rank” will rise and they will learn new skills to use in battle.

—In the background of the quarreling Sting and Rogue, the Panther Lily and friends are having a friendly chat.

Bond Conversations

The bonds between comrades who fought in the same party will gradually deepen, and by doing so, “Bond Conversations” will occur, allowing players to see game original conversations. These are episodes that you can only see in the game that go beyond the boundaries of guild in character communication.

—Ichiya, who has his eyes on scouting Gray, invites him to the Blue Pegasus guild.

—Juvia takes notice of Mirajane, who has work trouble, and offers to help, but then tries to escape after hearing what it is.

—Speaking to the Laxus the Dragon Slayer, who does not have a cat, Gajeel stresses the wonder and cuteness of cats… the Exceed.

The official Japanese website for Digimon Story has been updated with new screens, art, and gameplay details. Check out the screens and art here, and read up on the game's story, along with the character Ryou and Kunemon, and info on Search Actions below.

■ Story

New Encounters and Imminent Crisis

Takuma and friends visited a shrine related to the “Beast Gods” (Kemonogami) legend. The shrine was covered in fog, and there was an otherworldly, suspicious air floating about it.

Takuma and friends separated and explored the shrine, and a suspicious monster appeared before him from the bushes.

The monster, who calls himself Koromon, told Takuma that he feels like he already knows Takuma. Takuma was perplexed by Koromon, but regains composure after hearing a scream from his friends.

When he arrived at the scene, he found his friends attacked by monsters different from Koromon. And the surrounding fog was engulfing the boys desperately trying to escape…

Takuma, surrounded by fog and separated from his friends, managed to repel the monsters that attacked him with the power of Agumon, who evolved from Koromon, and reunite with Minoru and Aoi to make their way back to the school building where the camp was located.

However, the appearance of the school building surprised Takuma and friends. As if several decades of time had passed, the school building was covered in vegetation and looked like it deteriorated over time. Is this really the school where they were staying? Or did they end up slipping through time? Or perhaps they ended up lost in another world? Those types of questions were raised in their minds.

And at that moment…. “Ahhhhhh!”

They heard Ryou’s scream from the school building. A new crisis swooped down on the children…!

“Where are we?”

The children lost in another world are perplexed…!

■ Characters

Ryou Tominaga (voiced by Yohei Azakami)

A third-year student from a different junior high school who also participated in the extracurricular activities camp. He is unable to accept the reality that he has ended up lost in another world, and is afraid and disgusted by Kunemon. To hide his anxiety, he tries to make himself look better. Though the more he does this, the more his cowardice begins to show.

Kunemon (voiced by Ryouhei Arai)

A larva-type monster with lightning shapes on its body. While it cannot speak human language, it can understand what Ryou and friends are saying.

■ Character Voice Actor Announcements

Takuma (voiced by Kouhei Amasaki) and Agumon (voiced by Chika Sakamoto)

Minoru Hinata (voiced by Atsushi Abe) and Falcomon (voiced by Hiromu Miyazaki)

Aoi Shibuya (voiced by Kaede Hondo) and Labramon (voiced by Yukiyo Fujii)

■ Game System

Search for a Way to Survive

In Digimon Survive, the game progresses through “Drama Parts,” which progresses through text adventure, and “Battle Parts,” where friendly monsters battle against enemies like pawns on a chess board.

Drama Parts have two situations that occur within a limited window of time: “Free Actions,” where you choose where to go and who to talk to, and “Search Actions,” where you search for a means to survive in a critical situation.

For Search Actions, you can freely visit areas from the map. By talking to friends and obtaining information in each area, and by uncovering hints and items by investigating suspicious places, the story will progress. Search for a means to survive!

Cooking party game 'Cannibal Cuisine' heading to Switch in early 2020

Feeling hungry?

The jungle is in an uproar for this action packed cooking game, as the Gods are hungry... for you! Though as all good cannibal cooks know, serving is better than being served. Luckily the ingredients these man-munching gods demand are readily available in the jungle, such as unwary selfie shooting tourists!

Free range organic food... mostly

The recipes for success are varied; find delicious fruits and vegetables, and combine them with freshly chopped and cooked tourists for a truly divine delicacy fit for the God Hoochooboo. Of course the tourists might not offer themselves up freely, the heathens, so you’ll need to master your arcade reflexes, voodoo magic and fire breathing, useful for baking as well, to persuade them without getting KO’d!

Claim your Michelin stars with 1 to 4 players

Ready, steady, cook your way through a full campaign alone or with up to 4 chefs or challenge each other to cooking battles in PvP. With so many chefs in the kitchen, chaos is sure to follow. Outsmart rival cannibals while chasing tourists or work together as a crew to serve up the most epic of mealtimes to your god.

Well-done not Overcooked

Developing a taste for cooking by games such as Overcooked, inspired Rocket Vulture to create their own unique cuisine, a cannibalistic one. A spicy homage to Overcooked can be seen in the trailer to show their gratitude.

Doug Bowser will be at The Game Awards 2019, position as an Advisory Board member reconfirmed

Dougie fresh

Reggie Fils-Aime is going to be at The Game Awards 2019 for some fun, but obviously not in the same capacity as last year. The good news is that Doug Bowser, who took over for Reggie when the big guy departed, will also be at the show. We don't know if he'll be presenting or making any announcements, but we do have another confirmation of Bowser's position as a member on the show's Advisory Board.

Game Awards Advisory Board members "help buide and advance the mission of the Game Awards." The Advisory Board is not involved in the selection of award nominees or winners, and learns of the results of voting at the same time as the general public.
