In the latest issue of V-Jump (via Gematsu and ShonenGamez), Bandai Namco has revealed Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker's Memory. The title is a follow-up to last year's Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth and is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Japan this year.
The game takes place in the same world as the previous title and will cover the backstory of Cyber Sleuth. Players take on the role of hacker Keisuke Amazawa, a young man who is accused of a crime he didn't commit. The game carries forward some of the same systems from the previous game, with 320 Digimon appearing. Bandai Namco knows a bunch of folks slept on Cyber Sleuth, so Hacker's Memory will include the first game as a pack-in.
There's currently no word of an English release for Hacker's Memory, but Cyber Sleuth producer Kazumasa Habu told PushSquare that the next game in the series might get a simultaneous release worldwide if the first took off.
"When Cyber Sleuth was developed, there was no plan to launch outside of Japan. But thanks to the overseas fans' enthusiasm and dedication to campaigning for a release, we can now release a Digimon game after so long. We are very thrilled," said Habu.
"The hardware market in Western territories drove us to decide on the PS4 addition overseas. We are very sorry that the launch is very much delayed compared to the Japanese version due to this. If this title becomes a success, we can hopefully consider a worldwide, simultaneous launch for the next title."
Fingers crossed that it is the case for Hacker's Memory. Update: Bandai Namco filed a trademark for Hacker's Memory in Europe.
