September 16th, 2015. This month's issue of V Jump magazine has followed up on Tuesday's -next 0rder- commercial leak, confirming that the player will be permitted the use of two partners simultaneously. According to V Jump, -next 0rder-'s partner system allows two Digimon to fight at once, with the way they battle changing depending on their compatibility and the strength of their bond to one another. This game features an evolve AI battle system from what was seen in past Digimon World games; although the Digimon will think, move, and attack on their own, the player can encourage and support them from the back. The Digimon will become stronger in response to their cheers.

The issue introduces a new human character, Oofuchi Himari (大淵ヒマリ), whose surname is written with the kanji for "great depths" (alternatively "great pool" or "great abyss.") Himari's partner is Plotmon, a mammal-type Digimon with a spoiled personality. Unlike her Digimon, Himari is an outgoing and energetic girl. In the digital world the protagonist is guided by Jijimon, the elder of "a certain village." -next 0rder- is listed in the magazine as a raising simulation, but no fixed price or release date has been decided as of yet.

The storyline follows the protagonist as they wander the digital world, where they encounter Mugendramon. Somehow getting away from Mugendramon's attack, they witness the Village of Beginnings destroyed before them, and choose to assist both Himari and Jijimon in the reconstruction. The two partners featured in the magazine, War Greymon and Metal Garurumon, are shown battling Mugendramon as part of the storyline. An assortment of direct translations from the magazine are provided below.

(Note that in the original English localization of Digimon World, the Village of Beginnings was called "File City." No other game, anime, or manga since has called it this.)

The issue also details the upcoming 2015 smartphone game Digimon Linkz. Linkz introduces the Digigarden, where tamers raise a Digimon from its egg form to adulthood. These Digimon can then be leveled up in dungeons, and battled. Those that preregister for the game will be rewarded with a special V-mon at launch. Linkz will be available on both iOS and Android devices. In addition, V Jump's website updated today with new screenshots featuring protagonists Shiki and Takuto, giving us our first look at Shiki using both of her partners simultaneously.
