Digimon All-Star Rumble Boosts Fighters With Digicards
Publisher Bandai Namco has announced a new feature for its upcoming title, Digimon All-Star Rumble. It will include a card system to assist in combat.
Digicards can be equipped to your favorite Digimon, before the match starts. These items will provide an edge in attributes that triggers at the end of combos.
Aside from boosts, these Digicards can also transform your Digimon into rare Super Forms, much greater in size than their regular counterpart. There will be 200 cards in total, which can be unlocked during the game.
Digimon All-Star Rumble features a cast of monsters from throughout the series. You’ll be able to choose between the likes of Agumon or Gabumon.
During combat, Digimon will be able to Digivolve, which is their version of evolving, into the higher tier of fighters. Gameplay is seen in 3D and takes place in arenas like Toy Town, Native Forest or Coela Beach.
It’s not exactly Super Smash Bros, but there is at least a resemblance of using notable characters from a beloved franchise and letting them duke it out. We’re not entirely certain if the show is still as popular as it was over a decade ago though.
It’s likely that Digimon All-Star Rumble is just Bandai Namco trying to make use of the license as much as it can. It will release on older consoles, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, on November 11, 2014 for North America and a few days later in Europe.
Previously, the franchise was mostly available on handheld. It hasn’t seen a console release since Digimon World 4 on Xbox, Playstation 2 and GameCube in 2005.
