Digimon World: Next Order is a monster-collecting and raising RPG set in the beloved Digital World of Digimon.

In Digimon World: Next Order, players will step into the role of a DigiDestined as either Shiki or Takuto and embark on a quest to solve a perplexing Digi-mystery and restore the Digital World to its natural order after having spiraled into a state of utter chaos due to the Machinedramon that have taken over. As a DigiDestined, players will encounter an array of Digimon and recruit them as companions in an effort to rebuild the Digital World.

Players can strengthen the bonds of 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 have the opportunity to expand and manage the town of Floatia that serves as a home base between their travels.
