Digimon Survive's Kaito Shinonome and Dracmon fully detailed, new screens and art released

A dynamic duo

Not that long ago, we had a few details to share on Digimon Survive's Kaito Shinonome and Dracmon. Now we have the full rundown, thanks to an update on the game's official Japanese site. You can check out the full batch of screens and art here, as well as the new details below.

■ A Boy’s Inner Rage Stirs Up Violence in Another World

Kaito Shinonome is a local boy with a delinquent aura, who lives in the area where the extracurricular activities camp is being held.

The Shinonome family moved to the area several years ago, and Kaito was in charge of taking care of his younger sister in place of his parents, who tend to be away.

When they first moved, he was targeted and teased by bullies, but when they went as far as to tease his little sister who was with him, Kaito’s rage exploded and he gave them a beating.

Since then, Kaito is quieter and glares at others with sharp eyes, isolated from those around him and obsessive about protecting his sister.

“I have to protect my little sister!”

Those feelings become even stronger when he ends up lost in a dangerous new world, as he becomes violent and hurts those around him…

To survive in a dangerous world, a boy’s violent side will be revealed!

■ Kaito Shinonome and Dracmon

A boy who lives in the area where the extracurricular camp is being held. To stop his younger sister from going to the shrine on the forbidden grounds, he accompanies Takuma and company and ends up in another world. He has a strong sense of duty and dislikes wrongdoing, but because he can also be quick to get into fights and hates relying on others, he occasionally acts without the consultation of others. While he is always worrying over his his younger sister, he often causes misunderstandings due to his character.


A mischievous monster that fears nothing. While keeping a moderate distance from Kaito, who tends to instinctively lose control, he maintains a good relationship with Kaito by encouraging him to calm down and think things over.

The adventure deepens

Along with the batch of new screens and art that we shared earlier, a whole new wave of details for Digimon Survive has popped up. Check out the info on story, two more characters, and the Free Action system below.

■ Story

A camp that is boring for a girl suddenly changes and becomes an unexpected trial!

Saki is a middle school girl known for her lovely appearance and outspoken conduct.

While she participated in the camp to make memories with friends, none of her friends joined. While she looks popular, her friends see her as bothersome and cast her aside.

As if to get her mind off of that fact, she approaches Takuma and his friends. They step foot into the off-limits shrine out of curiosity, but end up wandering into another world together.

With her everyday life striped away, the strength of the girl’s heart will be challenged!

With her normal life a thing of the past, a girl’s strength will be tested!

■ Characters

Saki Kimijima (voiced by Minami Takahoshi)

A first-year middle school girl who participates in the extracurricular camp. She has a freewheeling and honest personality in that she clearly says whatever it is she wants to say. A girl who stresses her feelings for better or worse, her personality remains unchanged even when she wanders into another world, and saying exactly what is on her mind may lead to friction against others… She is unable to accept death as a reality, and believes everything is going to be alright.

Floramon (voiced by Shino Shimoji)

While categorized as a Plant-type, she is an unusual Digimon that evolved like a reptile. She is a friend to Saki, and her refreshing personality is an excellent match for the middle schooler.

Deepen Your Bonds with Friends through “Free Action”

During “Drama Parts,” which progress as a text adventure and tell the game’s story, two situations will occur: “Search Action,” where you search for a way to survive in a crisis situation, and “Free Action,” where you will choose where to go and who to talk to within a limited window of time.

During Free Action, your group of friends will disperse and act individually. By choosing an area from the map and talking to your friends in that area, you can learn new information and the problems your friends are dealing with, which will deepen your bonds.

There are also places where you can go during Free Action where you can enter “Free Battle” to train your Digimon and collect items.

“DigiNavi: Digimon News Navigation” live stream set for Jan. 24th, 2020

The latest Digimon news report

Digimon Web has announced a “DigiNavi: Digimon News Navigation” live-stream set for January 24th, 2020. The live-stream will feature news on all things Digimon, including upcoming games. The producer of the Digimon game franchise will be on-hand to answer fan questions, which can be submitted until January 6th, 2020.

Digimon Survive producer talks about the decisions players will have to make

Decisions, decisions...

Yes, Digimon Survive will have plenty of Digimon battling for you to take on, but that's not the only aspect of gameplay to look forward to. In an interview with Siliconera, Producer Habu Kazumasa talks about the various choices players will have to make throughout the experience.

There are plenty of opportunities to make decisions such as dialogue options, Digimon evolution trees, and more. Players can evolve their Digimon by gaining “intimacy points,” which can be accumulated through choosing certain dialogue options. Also, players can choose certain actions during battle, and “karma points” will be accumulated depending on their choice. As a result, the player’s monster revolution diverges and the story route changes depending on “karma points.”
