updated the Pittsburgh Digimon Celebration event page today, encouraging tamers to bring their Digimon virtual pets and Digivices to the event. The Celebration will take place on February 6th, 2016, just four days after the North American launch of Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on the PlayStation 4 and Vita. Fans will be able to play a collection of Digimon games on-site, including the Rumble series, and demos of Cyber Sleuth. World Tour is setting up several giveaways at the event and asking fans of all types to attend, whether they're cosplayers, gamers, or anime fans. Structured over Facebook, currently just over 40 persons have committed to going, while 90 have expressed "interest," and 268 others have been invited.
Although not originally planned as part of the event, fans began discussing the possibility of organizing an impromptu Digivice and/or virtual pet tournament soon after the page went up, as well as a separate competition for those that will have already bought Cyber Sleuth. Thus far, World Tour has been unable to make any absolute promises. More details about the Celebration can be viewed here.
Those looking to purchase a virtual pet or Digivice prior to the event should consult File Island's connectivity charts to see which are compatible beforehand, and our recent price guide. At present the Digivice iC, Xros Wars Mini, and Digimon Neo are the least expensive toys on the market, ranging for between $18 and $30.
