  • Story

It’s been a long time… your heart flutters in your chest as you start up the Digivice. In an instant, your entire body is covered in a pure white light.

When you wake up, you’re in a mysterious world with no entrance or exit.

Shattering your confusion, an unknown threat attacks. And your dear partners come rushing to your dilemma. The bonds that were almost broken are connected, and a path is formed.

It’s the last summer vacation of high school. From a miraculous light, the gate to a new adventure opens.

  •  Characters

Shiki

Digimon World: Next Order

 

The female protagonist (players can choose between Shiki and the male protagonist Takuto). Shiki wanders from the real world into the Digital World by means of a certain “opportunity.” It seems that this “opportunity” has some sort of connection to the “Digital Monster” toy she wears on her wrist…

Kouta Hirose

Digimon World: Next Order

 

A third-year student, same as the protagonist. He’s so-called “good person” with a kind personality that can read the room. It’s not like he’s not popular, but people often say he’s missing something. Just like the hero, he wanders into the Digital World. His partner is a Guilmon named Yukimura. He’s polite to everyone and has a stoic attitude.

Himari Obuchi

Digimon World: Next Order

 

A third-year student, same as the protagonist. Level-headed and resolute, but sometimes mistaken as self-centered since she tends to act as soon as she makes up her mind. On the contrary, she’ll work hard to help someone else even if it means suppressing her own feelings. She ends up in the Digital World like Kouta. Every now and then she looks like something tough is on her mind… Her partner is a Salamon named Rikka. She has a needy personality and is always with Himari.

  • Digimon Expressions

Digimon World: Next Order

Your Digimon will display a variety of facial expressions, so be sure to check on him/her every now and then.
