Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory possibly coming to the Nintendo Switch

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory has been listed for the Nintendo Switch by two major Spanish retailers (1,2).

Both sites have now removed the listings, but a backup of the game’s cover art is still available (via). The game is listed for an October 30 release for later this year.

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory was released for the PS4 and PS Vita in January 2018, and was a “parallel campaign” to the original Cyber Sleuth game released back in 2016. Hacker’s Memory greatly improved upon Cyber Sleuth’s formula adding new features and implementing many QOL improvements.

This announcement could be the V-Jump tease that we posted about last month, that issue will go live later this month so expect to find out more soon.

As someone who has played most of the Digimon games that have made it stateside, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory in my opinion is one of the better games in series (read our review here). The game coming to Nintendo Switch should definitely be a treat.

In related news, for later this year we also have Digimon Survive, a Strategy RPG take on the franchise. A new Digimon Story game is also currently in development with PS4 as the lead platform, but that most like won’t release before 2020.

Update: For those wondering why the original Cyber Sleuth wasn’t ported before Hacker’s Memory, you’re not alone. Apparently the former is going through some sort of licensing issues and will most likely won’t be ported anytime soon. The game was removed from sale on the US PSN on both PS4 and PS Vita systems last year in December. Later in January 2019 Cyber Sleuth was delisted in Europe and South East Asia as well. The game is currently only available for purchase digitally in Japan. You can still get your hands on a physical copy, but don’t expect a re-release anytime soon.
