Shueisha Publishes -next 0rder- V Jump Books Guide

March 16th, 2016. V Jump Books formally announced its next title, the official guide to Digimon World -next 0rder-. The guide was previously teased in an issue of V Jump magazine; VJB is an imprint of Shueisha, the publishing company which owns V Jump. The Digimon World -next 0rder- Official Guidebook is sponsored by Bandai Namco Entertainment, and touted as a "Tamers' Bible." It comes packaged with a product code that can be entered to download Black War Greymon and Metal Garurumon (Black) evolution items, in addition to stat-boosting items.

While the guide does provide a visual list of 216 of the game's Digimon, the evolution trees, names, descriptions and Tech lists are all in Japanese, requiring some level of literacy to read. The back of the guide features short section of pages featuring concept art of the core human cast, and the front contains a small foldout artwork of the adult Digimon World protagonist with Mugendramon.
