Digimon Survive (デジモンサヴァイブ Dejimon Savaibu?) is a survival role-playing video game developed by Witchcraft and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Originally scheduled for 2019[3], Survive was instead delayed into 2020.[4]


The game does not take place in the Digital World, and will instead take place in a completely different world.[5]

Takuma Momozuka, Minoru Hyuuga, Aoi Shibuya, Saki, and Shuuji are on a historical studies extracurricular activities camp during spring break. On the second day Takuma, Minoru and Aoi visit a famous local temple to investigate the legend of the "Beast Gods" (Kemonogam) where a festival to celebrate them will take place. As they explore, they come across Koromon, then hear screaming. Koromon and the group run to the source and find their class mates being attacked by other Digimon. Koromon digivolves to Agumon and scares the Digimon away. It is at this point, that Takuma and the others discover they are in another world.[6][7]


The inspiration for the game was taken from the bonds between characters and their Digimon partners from the various Digimon anime series. The staff wanted players to experience this for themselves by making choices that would effect the Digimon's growth. In addition, game producer Kazumasa Habu talked to Digimon Adventure director, Hiroyuki Kakudo about his interpretation of the origins of Digimon, that being that Digimon were not born as a result of humans creating computers, and instead always existed, living alongside humans, though in another dimension, becoming visible to humans once they created computers and digital technology. Digimon may have been manifested through magic or sorcery, through the ancient art of Onmyōdō, subjugating them as shikigami, yōkai, or demons, but is now accomplished digitally, making them Digital Monsters. This inspired Habu to make Digimon Survive.[5]

The western version of Digimon Survive has English, German, French, Spanish and Italian subtitles.[8]


Digimon Survive is a Survival RPG.[1] Player choices influence the direction of the story, including the Digimon's digivolution process. Multiple playthroughs can result in different paths and different digivolutions. The game will feature multiple endings and should wrong choices be made, characters will be killed.[9]
