Four years after its initial release, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition will be making its way to the PC and Switch on October 16. Bandai Namco

Contrary to its earlier announcement that Digimon Survive would be seeing a release later this year, Bandai Namco has now revealed that Survive will be delayed and won’t be arriving for the Switch, or any platforms for that matter, until next year. This surprising announcement was made in the midst of Anime Expo 2019 during the publisher’s “Future of Digimon” panel.

The announcement did have some good news though, as it was also revealed that Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition will be launching on the Nintendo Switch on October 18. An announcement trailer for the October launch date has also been released.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth tells the story of a group of teens pulled into a hacker-mystery adventure, involving multiple plot lines and game changing choices to be made.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition should play the same as its previous iterations on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. A solid RPG with great gameplay mechanics, it currently enjoys a 73 out of 100 rating on Metacritic. To be honest, this seems more like a band-aid solution for whatever untimely demise Digimon Survive faced while in development, but there’s nothing wrong with relying on a solid game release to buy time to perfect the one you’re currently working on.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, from developer Media.Vision, was originally released for the PlayStation Vita and the PS4 throughout 2015 and 2016. A sequel, titled Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory, was released for Japan in 2017 and for the western market in early 2018 for the same platforms in the PlayStation family. The October 18, 2019 release of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition will include both games, and will be available on the Nintendo Switch and on Windows PC via Steam.

Bandai Namco has been on an undeniable tear during the three-day run of the Anime Expo 2019, with announcements and releases for highly anticipated games such as Souls-like RPG Code Vein and more updates being released for their mysterious upcoming MMORPG in Blue Protocol. It might have been asking too much to see more of Elden Ring, but I guess that doesn’t fit with the anime aesthetic at all.
