Digimon World: Next Order is a role-playing video game in the Digimon franchise and the sixth game in the Digimon World series. The game is developed by B.B. Studio and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game was released for PlayStation Vita in Japan on March 17, 2016. The game would later release for PlayStation 4 in North America and PAL regions in January 2017, and in Japan on February 26, 2017 as Digimon World: Next Order International Edition. Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows versions were released on February 22, 2023.

In DIGIMON WORLD: NEXT ORDER, players will step into the role of a DigiDestined as either Shiki or Takuto, embarking on a quest to solve a perplexing Digi-mystery and restore the Digital World to its natural order. The world of Digimon has spiraled into a state of utter chaos as Machinedramon rampages through the city. Along their journey, players will need to explore the world and strengthen their bonds with their Digimon companions to stop the world’s complete destruction.

DIGIMON WORLD: NEXT ORDER boasts an expansive roster of over 200 Digimon to collect and befriend, from which players can select two to accompany them on their adventures as partners. Players can strengthen the bonds with their Digimon by training, feeding, and Digivolving them to unlock their full potential, making them even stronger in battle. During their adventures, DigiDestined will also meet a colorful cast of characters, and they will have the opportunity to expand and manage the town of Floatia that serves as a home base between their travels. New to the Nintendo Switch and PC via STEAM versions is a new Beginner Mode difficulty level, making it easier for new players to join in the fun. A new running ability allows players to move at 1.4x the normal speed, making traversing the large maps even smoother.

I have just gotten my hands on a review key so stay tuned here for more coverage soon. With Pokemon on the fore-front of gamers minds there is still a strong audience that loves Digimon, will I feel the same way? Only time will tell.

blank Kevin Austin has been in gaming journalism in one way or another since the launch of the Nintendo Gamecube. Married and father of 3 children he has been gaming since the ripe age of 6 when he got his first NES system and over 30 years later he is still gaming almost daily. Kevin is also co-founder of the Play Some Video Games (PSVG) Podcast network which was founded over five years ago and is still going strong. Some of his favorite gaming series includes Fallout and Far Cry, he is a sucker for single player adventure games (hence his big reviews for Playstation), and can frequently be found getting down in one battle royale or another. If it's an oddball game, odds are he's all about it.
