February 18th, 2016. This month's issue of V Jump magazine has been leaked by several different fans acting independently on Twitter. The latest issue reveals that Shinomiya Rina of Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode will be reappearing in -next 0rder- as part of the second of two downloadable scenarios. The first scenario "Maicoomon's Mystery" will have the player help a Maicoomon who came from another world recover her lost members, while the second scenario "The Super First-Class Great Beautiful Girl Tamer Appears!!" has the protagonist become Rina's "disciple."

According to Jump, after starting the game tamers can use their internet connection to download these scenarios free of charge. Rina had previously appeared as part of a crossover with Cyber Sleuth, and Mikagura Mirei--also of the Re:Digitize universe--has been confirmed to be joining the cast of -next 0rder-.

The issue confirms the appearances of Omega Shoutmon and Arresterdramon as possible evolutions for Shoutmon and Gumdramon in -next 0rder-. Profiles for several new antagonists seen in the most recent trailer were also shown.

Metal Etemon and Titamon are said to be assisting Tsuzuki Shouma, along with his partners Kuzuhamon and Gaioumon. Metal Etemon is voiced by Matsutani Yasunori (増谷康紀) who previously portrayed both Etemon and Metal Etemon in Digimon Adventure.

Titamon is voiced by Egawa Hisao (江川央生) who voiced Ogremon and Mugendramon in Adventure. One screenshot shows Metal Etemon conversing with a Nanomon, a possible allusion to Etemon and Nanomon's rivalry in Adventure.

The information on Maicoomon, Rina, and the Xros series Digimon was simultaneously published in Weekly Jump. Neither magazine clarifies how Omega Shoutmon and Arresterdramon are treated in terms of level. This will be the first Digimon game to include them in a non-Xros specific setting, as in their home universes the two have no level.

V Jump also states that the official V Jump Books guide for -next 0rder- will launch soon, possibly simultaneous to the game itself.

Last month's issue focused on Shoutmon and Gumdramo's presence in the game, as well as the layout of Flowtier, the new town replacing the Village of Beginnings/File City.

Digimon World -next 0rder- will launch in Japan March 17th, 2016, on the PlayStation Vita for 6,980 yen (7,539 JPY after tax). It is the latest entry in the World series, succeeding directly from Re:Digitize Decode on the 3DS, Re:Digitize on the PSP, and World on the PSX. Tying into Digimon Adventure tri., the game will feature Maicoomon as free downloadable content.

Those that preorder the game will get access to five special DLC Digimon, a remastered copy of the 1999 Digimon World soundtrack, and two original Vita themes, "ver. Nostalgic" and "ver. Dot." Theme ver. Dot features a montage of original Digimon LCD sprites, while theme ver. Nostalgic turns the screen into the layout of a Digital Monster virtual pet.
