Practically a whole new world
This might be the most upbeat graphical comparison video I’ve ever seen. Alongside the happy-go-lucky tune, we’re shown how next year’s PlayStation 4 version of Digimon World: Next Order sizes up against the original PlayStation Vita release. In the side-by-sides, the differences are staggering.
Rainbows are wider. Smoke exists. Scenes that had hazy or otherwise ill-defined backgrounds on PS Vita are now far more detailed. In some cases, like the fortified bridge area shown above or the spooky church with a gargantuan moon shown in the video (at 1:06), the world feels more fleshed out across the board. While there are new textures and other minor but appreciated visual upgrades as well, these sweeping environmental changes are what really help sell the sense of place and atmosphere.
Next Order is out for PS4 on January 27 in Europe and January 31 in North America.
