Kazumasu Habu, who is the producer behind the Digimon games, has said during a question and answer session at Digimon Con 2022, that he is thinking carefully about reintroducing Digimon World in either the form of a port, a remaster, or even a full scale remake. Mr. Habu reiterated that he and the team have received many requests from fans around the world regarding either a port or a remake of the classic Digimon World. He said that because of this the team is thinking very carefully about how to approach it. Here’s what Mr. Habu had to say at the event:
“We have received many requests for a port or remake of the original Digimon World. “I’m positively considering it. But at the same time, I’m also thinking about which choice—port, remaster, or remake—is better.”
“If I choose port / remaster, then I think it will be highly feasible. If you want a remake, we need to think about how many additional elements you’d need to incorporate into the game. Digimon World has a very good balance between File Island—the stage—and the Digimon that appear. If we add a new field—for example, the Folder Continent—or new Digimon, then I think we should treat it as a new product rather than a remake.
“I would be grateful if you could continue to share your opinions with me. Please give us your opinions in the comments section or elsewhere. We’d love to hear from you.”
Port, remake, remaster I’d be happy just having another Digimon game. Im a huge fan of Digimon Cyber Sleuth and Hackers Memory. Haven’t played the older Digimon games, so it’d be nice if they ported Digimon World.
I would prefer a new game in the Digimon world series. But it would be nice to have some more story elements like cyber sleuth games.
Also, less blue data stuff that’s very rampant in cyber sleuth. Don’t really care too much for that type of design it just makes it seem lazy to me if it’s all just a blue background. But I do get it, it’s a digital world but I still believe they could make it more unique.
Digimon world 3 for me was the peak of the series. Didn’t like the newer ones after that.
