Digimon World -next 0rder- Coming to Taiwan in June, No PS4 Port

April 15th, 2016. Bandai Namco Entertainment Taiwan announced that the PlayStation Vita game Digimon World -next 0rder- will be coming to the island country on June 9th, 2016. Like Cyber Sleuth, which Taiwan got a translation of ahead of western gamers in November 2015, the game currently appears to be in undubbed Japanese but with traditional Chinese subtitles and in-game text.  But unlike Sleuth, the game will exclusively be brought over on the PlayStation Vita, with no PlayStation 4 port having been announced. No word has been given as to whether or not -next 0rder- will be coming to English-speaking countries; previously Sleuth debuted in North America and Europe about 70 days after it did in Taiwan.

This is a key localization for Bandai, as it marks the first time in over seventeen years that a World game has been localized in Chinese. Initial screenshots already show successful implementation of Chinese text in gameplay, suggesting that progress on the translation has been ongoing for some time. Bandai Taiwan reuploaded one of the game's primary official trailers to YouTube, which is in Chinese-subtitled Japanese. Unlike Bandai of Japan, Taiwan has chosen to present the title as -Next Order- online, whereas other sources like @Digimon_game use -next 0rder-.

  2. Great news for Digimon! This can definitely mean something for us in the West :) Altough, I still hope they first localize the best entry of Digimon games so far imo: Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode and later Next Order as a "sequel in an alternative universe" (which is not entirely wrong).

    P.S. I love that giant ToyAgumon xD

  3. I bought Cyber sleuth at full price just for this one to be localized. Don't get me wrong Cyber sleuth is one killer game but I am a Digimon World fan than a Digimon story fan. Always will be.
