    No and that's a good thing.

    The only way we can get the proper Tamers sequel is if Digimon becomes as obscure as possible. Otherwise we will have mobs of morons trying to cancel the franchise.

      PSP adventure was just your average cash-in anime RPG. It was as good as you'd expect it to be, but I never bothered with it so I can't speak much on it other than that. I never bothered with the anime-based games in general.

      Re:digitize does a lot better than world 1, but it also drops the ball on monster choices heavy to save money, a lot are human-shape just to reuse the same wireframe animations and while it does encourage you to follow the plot, considering I'm illiterate I wasn't actually able to so I just stumbled on next events while exploring anyway. It didn't feel any more locked up than world 1 where you have to do certain tasks to progress through the island map. You just had two directions to go in.
      Way better than next order overall. Next order's plot and characters are a lot worse and the way stat growth from combat vs training is makes the game a time consuming mob grindfest unlike the other two but at least due to that you get more time using champion/ultimates than re:digitize even if it's braindead to get megas in.

      De:code = world 1 based on taste > Base Redigitize > next order.

    bandai literally just doesn't have faith in digimon but it every single time does better than expected
    cyber sleuth and hackers memory? far outsold expectations
    the tcg that they thought would failed, stopped supporting for years, short printed most sets globally and kept on life support? was their most popular tcg, smashed bss, only one piece which came out far more recently and is a massive IP pulling in non tcg players is beating it, and its close.
    survive? they shit the bed on this so hard and it still blew out their expectations, so many people trashed it and didn't play it and it STILL crushed their sales goals

    digimon literally always does beyond expectation and the reality is that bandai just has low fricking expectations for it and low support when it could do SO SO much better
    genuinely have no fricking idea why they keep doing this, there are so many more examples than the ones I pointed out as well.

        It’s because you didn’t get to managing skills and skill inheritance via evolutions.

        I felt the same, that the combat was thin. It wasn’t until I started actually managing digimon skills that the combat really started to shine.
        You basically start building custom classes based on the move pools you have and start thinking about how to navigate evolution trees.

        It’s extremely good, but takes time to reach as it only starts to rear it’s head at Megas and Ultimates.

            It being young isn't really the issue, it just isn't the right place to do a new game reveal. I don't see why any Digimon fan would even Want them to do a game reveal there (instead of at an actual gaming event). But the sentiment is very popular for some reason. The problem is no one will see the event except dedicated hardcore digimon fans. Those types of people, like you and me, will end up buying the game either way.

            To put this into perspective, imagine if Dark Souls or Persona 5 had their initial reveal at a dedicated demon souls or persona event. Wouldn't that be fricking moronic? Let's advertise to the choir. It's just frustrating because most people don't know Next Order or Survive even exist, or found out extremely late. Hell most people don't even realize Digimon's still alive, even if they grew up with it and loved it as a kid. It's ridiculous how much the series is kept contained in a bubble.

The specific reason I mentioned dark souls and persona 5 in the first place is because those were take-off points. They exploded, and it was in part due to stellar marketing and getting many eyes on it.

                Dark Souls 1 and Persona 5 are not comparable. Persona was already a "big name" by 4. The announcement of 5 would have spread like wildfire no matter where it came from.
                Either way, let's not deviate from the actual topic.

                It's all a matter of statistics and having as many snowballs rolling as possible. A twitter/news wildfire isn't guaranteed like you guys think it is (didn't happen for Survive/Next order). Think of it from the perspective of a huge Twitter user- are you more likely to retweet some random digimon fan account that's talking about the new Digimon game revealed at digicon (which would require the popular user to go out of their way to go watch the trailer themselves, when there's no proof it's even worth watching the trailer), or for a twitter user to casually comment on digimon after they see it at a gaming event that they're already going to be watching anyway. The commitment to spend that 2 minutes to watch something unproven is extremely unlikely on average. At a gaming event though they're sitting through the trailer either way. It's sad I gotta explain all of this, it's really common sense. Even just stopping at "it's statistics" is enough really.

                I don’t care for game reveals at Digicon, I’d prefer they just talk about development aspects and show their thought process.

                Digimon game reveals have been all over. Vjump, anime cons, that’s why no one rules out Digicon.

                From a numbers perspective, if you had game reveals, would that not boost numbers of con? Digimon’s big, so it’s not a bad idea to have every announcement centralised.

    Bandai just frick up all the time. If they settle with digimon story and digimon world1/digitize/next order types of games first and make them popular, the games franchise could be saved. They should make anime where children actually grow and change along digimon, like adventure 1, 2 and 3, that's what I think was the appeal of the anime and what separated it from other anime. Even though it looked good, I couldn't watch ghost game with episodic shit. The vital bracelet was a good idea but was so fricking bad implemented. About TCG.... I've heard is good but I just don't care about gacha shit. Being a digimon fan is pure suffering

      >actually grow and change along digimon
      what's this growing up bullshit? I liked the wacky adventures in the digital world, going from town to town, hunting down the source of the dark gears and shit in a world that has telephone booths on the fricking beach and an onsen house in the middle of a jungle.

        Gets boring fast. There is a bond between digimon and tamer and the mental state of the tamer influence their digivolution routes. That's why I just could keep with pokemon, I dropped it when Johto finished. There are plenty of other anime where character goes to place, fight, gets ass kicked, power up, beat bad guy, then next place

          but pokemon are dumb creatures that stay in their fricking balls 99% of the time and and are put in a PC when you need better ones, like ash did with 99% of his pokemon (without paying a penny to prof. Oak).
          then there's the whole battling aspect which was ruined by dumb cop outs like "dodge it." hell, trainers are completely superfluous in pokemon considering the mons do 100% of the work.
          and finally, there's the fact that pokemon itself doesn't make sense
          >creatures that get stronger via wienerfighting to death and seek out human coaches is absolutely moronic
          >pokemon not preying on humans is moronic
          >criminals engaging in wienerfights instead of just shooting trainers is moronic
          >free healthcare is moronic
          >10 year-olds wandering on their own is moronic and apprehending criminals while the police can't a lay finger on them is moronic
          all the uncomfortable bits under the rug. and then there's the fact that the series got turned into the blandest, safest crap possible. but they can't go back because if they try to dispell the lies, it will all fall apart at the seams.

          very few have grungy talking monsters each paired with 1 person, and human-monster shenanigans. mon shows usually take themselves too seriously

              I wish we could hang moronic xilennials at the plaza.
              early cartoons were were full of jokes for adult audiences, unlike today's sanitized garbage

                If you can’t process why a cartoon’s world is setup so as to be easy for children to digest, then you’re genuinely stupid.

                nice moronic strawman.
                the powerpuff girls, a show for literal kids, was not afraid to lampoon the topics viewers might wonder about for comedy: it has episodes on the collateral damage the girls cause, an episode parodying stupid hippie activists, concern trolls, and SJWs (complete with the villain crying "I'm being oppressed"), and an episode where the girls move to another town and are stopped from saving the town by bureaucrats.
                pokemon's entire world is coated in saccharine but at the same time is undermined by its very essence: wienerfighting good, but hey whipping them bad.
                hell, RBY had lavender down showing people that pokemon die and implied your rival's Raticate died on the way to a pokecenter, yet from 2nd gen onwards you never hear about death ever, ever again.

              Is there no depth digikeks wont sink too?

              Digimon was never good.

              Based. Digishit somehow makes snorebots look good. Closest digimon was to kino was when they just copied pokemon

    Kid shows should take themselves seriously and try to make a good and consistent, they should use heavy themes but in a way a kid can process so when they grow up they can have standards

      Digimon is the gold standard of this alongside Ghibli movies.

      But if you can’t process that a kid transforming his dinosaur into a mecha Godzilla is designed for kids, then forget about it. Immaturity is being unable to realise when something is not for you.

        The story and the characters were better than what was shown in the anime since savers, honestly might be worth it to look it up on youtube.
