Cyber Sleuth Set for February Release Date

October 11th, 2015. At this year's New York Comic-Con, Bandai Namco US announced the final launch date for the English-language Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth; February 2nd, 2016. The JRPG will be available on the PlayStation 4, Vita, and PSTV systems for $59.99, supporting additional difficulty modes and a New Game Plus feature not found in the Japanese game. Cyber Sleuth has been designed with both adults and players completely new to the Digimon franchise in mind, creating a well-rounded RPG that stands on its own merits rather than merely being an extension of the formerly child-oriented brand.

Cyber Sleuth director Habu Kazumasa previously attributed the game's international launch to the Operation Decode petition, which in the lead-up to Sleuth's release announcement acquired more than sixty-five thousand signatures asking for the Digimon franchise to return to the west. The other game Operation Decode focused on--Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode on the 3DS--has not yet been announced for a western release, although a fan translation of the original Re:Digitize on PSP has partially filled the gaps. With -next 0rder- on the horizon as the next major Digimon game, Cyber Sleuth's international sales will likely determine whether future entries in the Digimon World and Digimon Story series reach the west.
