With Digimon Survive finally dropping on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and Microsoft Windows worldwide on July 29, fans are having a great time trying Bandai Namco’s latest RPG (role-playing game).
The title combines “visual novel storytelling” with the role-playing style of gameplay, creating a sense of nostalgia among longtime veterans of Digimon games, as well as fans of manga and anime.
Players will get to experience a very complete narrative in the title, which has left many in the community wondering how long the game really is.
As a monster-collection RPG, the title comes with a significant amount of side quests and XP that can increase the total time taken to complete the title.
However, this guide will mainly talk about how extensive the narrative is in Digimon Survive and the least amount of time a player can expect to finish the story.
How long does Digimon live?
With the game leaving only a few hours before, it is very hard to ascertain the exact playtime to complete the game. However, Digimon Survive producer Kazumasa Habu has stated that the game requires approximately 40 hours to complete.
This information was provided in an interview with Gematsu, where Kazumasa also added:
“This can vary depending on the level of difficulty and the use of the fast-forward function of the lesson. It will take approximately 80 to 100 hours to complete all passages, including challenging elements and final material.
Similar to some of the previous Digimon games, players will be allowed to take multiple routes while trying to complete the game. Digimon Survive, in particular, will have three different routes that players can choose from as they progress through the story.
Therefore, 40 Hours mainly applies only to the original narrative; However, the game also comes with a fair amount of grindable material, and at least around 100 will be needed to complete all three routes.
Unlike some previous games such as Digimon Cyber Sleuth, Survive plays out like a visual novel, where players are able to make choices as they progress, which in turn will determine the relationships they will have with some of the key NPCs. . title.
This is why Digimon Survive feels more like a trick than a game. In addition, it is much slower than expected.
That said, using the difficulty settings, players will be able to breeze through the game by setting the battle to Very Easy. While it may not be a very enjoyable experience for RPG veterans, those who are playing it for the story will have a better time experiencing the game.
