Bandai Namco has released a new set of media and information for Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory, detailing new characters and the online functionality for the game.
Many different groups inhabit the Digital World. Jimmy Ken is the leader of a group known as the Demons, sporting black leather clothes and facepaint. We are also introduced to the mysterious hacker known as K. His motives are not fully clear, but he is seemingly chasing the criminal who is after Keisuke's account.
There are also a number of various Online battle options available, where the player can battle other players with their team of Digimon. The most common mode is Rank Battle, where teams of Digimon clash with a standard rules and points system. There also Event Battles, which will feature unique limitations on the battle and change every two weeks. For those just looking to play with friends, a Free Rule Battle option is available separately, allowing players to invite 8 others and set their own rules.
Both the Rank and Event Battle modes will earn the player coins, which can be used to outfit your favorite Digimon was hats and other accessories. You can also adjust the appearance of the player character in the Online Mode.
