With every new Digimon TV series announced, comes with it a new generation of Digivice. Bandai Namco recently announced the new series, called Digimon Ghost Game, which will air in fall. And alongside it is the new Digivice, called Vital Breath Digivice -V-.
As the images suggest, this new generation Digivice comes in the form of a wearable. In fact, it looks very similar to the one that came before it, called the Vital Breath Digital Monster. And according to Famitsu, it does come with a few of the more basic features that you’d expect from an actual wearable. A few examples include a built-in heart rate monitor and a pedometer.
It also has a companion smartphone app called Digital Monster Vital Breath Lab. And this is where you access Digimon battles with others, which is a far cry of having to have two Digivices come into contact with each other in the toy’s early days. There’s even a Raid Battle, where players help each other to defeat bosses. And as you’d expect from modern toys, the Vital Breath Digivice -V- has additional add-ons called Dim Cards which adds more Digimon into the pre-installed roster.
The Vital Breath Digivice -V- will be released in Japan on 2 October 2021 for JPY6490 (~RM250). International release dates to be announced at a later time. As for the Digimon Ghost Game TV series itself, chances are it will air at around the same time as the Digivice’s release.
