    I think it is pulling a DBZ Kai and airing on two channels one airing it in July and the other this fall.
    That's really interesting, I haven't heard any other sources report this though so I'm going to go double check but hopefully this is right, I'd love to have my summer filled with Digimon.

    Hm, I'd expect some of it to get out before the end of the year. While the bulk of it probably will be in 2014 I can't see Bandai not trying to milk the tv series in some way.

    Why would they list a date on a trade sheet - meant specifically to convey information to retailers and potential promotional partners - if they themselves don't intend to follow it?

    It's not unusual for toys to be put up on shelves earlier then their release date. Power Rangers Megaforce for instance had some of its toys up in December 2012 despite the 2013 release date.

    Which doesn't mean you should expect it on the basis of "[you] can't see Bandai not trying to milk the tv series in some way".

    If anything, it makes more sense for them to hold back the toy line for the revival of a mercurial franchise like Digimon - if you launch the toys at the same time as the show and the show doesn't catch on, you've got the toys rotting away on shelves. Waiting allows them to better gauge the demand for the toy line.

    I never said I expected the toys as soon as the show launches, moreso I meant that since there's a precedence for toys coming out earlier before it may also happen in this case. Plus, having something to market along with the show is always nice since when the show finally settles in they'll have some revenue to gain, even if they don't give out every single toy they have.

    Also, if the July release is true then I'd figure it'd be better to ride those curtails earlier then spring 2014 since that's over 6 months without a toy to market.

    The Spring 2014 release might be referring to Digimon Fusion toys only. It's a Digimon Fusion ad, after all.

    More Promotional Posters:





    From the looks of it, Fusion's still on for Fall (in fact, it implies that it'll debut on Vortexx after Nick). Other then that, nothing much.

    Edit: Not done yet! Courtesy of WtW, here's some of the new toy line!

    Action figures of Greymon, Shoutmon, Ballistamon

    Respective close-ups of each: Shoutmon, Greymon, and Ballistamon

    AF of Shoutmon X4

    AF of Metalgreymon

    Plastic figurines (look like Chibis to me XD) of Ballistamon, Shoutmon, Dorulumon

    Shoutmon's mic

    Xros Loader (Apparently it's a card game? Wonder what happened to the other one).

    I really like that Metalgreymon.

    Oh, look. A new Digimon.




    Titamon, huh? Hey, isn't that skull one of the heads on Deltamon's arms?

    Orgemon finally has an ultimate? Took them long enough.

    Now we just need for this guy to go toe to toe with Bancholeomon and my childhood memories shall be complete.

    Edit: According to a translator, it's Orgemon's ultimate born from the hatred of the Olympus Twelve rather then from friendship, which makes sense but we'll have to wait until someone can clear it up.

    The Shadowed Digimon from earlier is revealed:

    It's Aegipanmon! ...Along with Aegiothysmon.

    Your link gives a 404 error. That, and searching via google yields nothing for both names.

    Fixed, and the names are a bit iffy because of the katakana being a bit more difficult to dicipher so it may be different then what I gave.

    The first season of Digimon would have been epic with this guy.

    Alright, Digimon Decode is out in Japan (or will be within the next day) so be on alert for story news related to it. Also, a list of the Digimon available is now out (with a couple missing here or there, like Gekomon) so check it out and see which favorite of yours managed to make it in:



    So from initial impression it looks like most of the main Digimon and their lines from Adventure, 02, Tamers and Savers got in. We also got the main villains from Adventure like the Dark Masters, Barbamon and Chaosdramon from Next.

    Edit: Oh, and I forgot to mention this earlier, the two new Digimon's names were Aegiomon and Aegiochusmon.

    Are those all official Vpet sprites? They look pretty good.

    Enough of my Digimon made it in for this to be a fun ride. Namely Victory Greymon, Ulforce V-Dramon, and Z'd Garurumon. Would've liked to see Terriermon though..

    nice, BlackGatomon and Chaosmon are in, I didn't expect that. Also, lol ChibiKamemon.


    What's the difference between blue box and yellow box, anyway?

    I'm assuming yellow means newly added playable Digimon while blue means the returning Digimon from the previous game.

    Glad to see the Dorumon line made it in, though I wonder why his Fresh and In-training forms weren't included.

    Dodomon is there...but it Digivolves into Wanyamon for some reason.

    Missed that. Maybe it's a mistake. Actually, didn't know Wanyamon could legitimately evolved from Dodomon.

    ^
    It's not just you, literally no one knows Dodomon could evolve into Wanyamon. Re: Digitize is the first instance where Dodomon evolves into Wanyamon instead.

    A new interview came out, here's the original (which includes the sketches mentioned in the translated one) along with the translated text courtesy of WtW's Garmmon.

    One of the things that really caught my eye with this one is that Titamon was originally conceptualized as Bacchusmon, you can even see the original design here:



    Also, here's an interview about the game courtesy of Siliconera.
