Namco Bandai tease was for Digimon, not Xenosaga

Namco Bandai tease was for Digimon, not Xenosaga photo



A short while back, Namco Bandai had teased that an RPG will be making a big comeback, and fans excitedly crossed their fingers for a new Xenosaga or other such venerable franchise. If you're a fan of the Xenosaga series, you are to be disappointed bitterly. If you're a fan of the poor man's Pokemon, you are to be thrilled.

Yep, Digimon is coming back.

The big RPG tease was to herald the return of Digimon, Scamco's male-centric Tamagotchi franchise that eventually got its own TV series and became quite a popular Japanese fixture toward the end of the nineties. There is to be no Xenosaga, and no Baiten Kaitos. We should have seen this coming, really.

The new game appears to be called Digimon Story, and it's due for arrival on the Nintendo DS. Yeah I know, this sucks.

[Thanks, Miles]

Dark Souls II's current-gen re-release Scholar of the First Sin found an opening in the Japanese sales charts and struck at an opportune moment. Most weeks, it would barely make a dent, but on this particular week, it wa...more
