We’re here, people. Tokyo Game Show is happening as we speak and from the expo comes a whole bunch of news about some awesome upcoming Japanese video game titles, one of which just so happens to be my most anticipated; ‘Digimon All-Star Rumble’. The game, which was announced by Bandai Namco about a month or so ago, pits Digimon against Digimon in much the same style as the PlayStation 2 ‘Digimon’ fighting game ‘Digimon Rumble Arena’.
Featuring characters from the original season all the way up until the latest season, this game is the first from the ‘Digimon’ franchise in quite a while that WILL be getting a Western release. Bandai Namco Games today, at the Tokyo Game Show, released a whole new batch of screenshots and character models from the game that not only show us more of what it has to offer but also introduces us to the ‘Digicard’ system which is a gameplay mechanic that allows players to add special bonuses and upgrades to their digital partner.
Two ‘Digicards’ can be equipped before a match and can help to add devastating elemental effects to your combos. Some of the ‘Digicards’ may even unlock a ‘special evolution’ but those are the ones you stock up for a rainy day. ‘Digimon All-Star Rumble’ is set for a release on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 11th of November in North America and the 14th of November in Europe with Japan, obviously, getting it before us…those lucky ducks.
