Later this year, Namco Bandai will release three new Digimon titles: Digimon World Dawn and Dusk for the Nintendo DS and Digimon World Data Squad for the not-dead-yet PS2.
The DS games look to follow the same format as the dual Pokemon releases we have all come to be familiar with, but with a certain twist: The pair of titles boast "parallel and interweaving storylines" told from two different sides, in this case a conflict spurred by a massive earthquake. There will be over 400 new monsters to collect, but if you really want to go all-out and land the super-rare Digimon, you'll need both versions (of course) to connect through WiFi.
The PS2 title, based on the upcoming Disney cartoon series of the same name, offers cel-shaded graphics in addition to an opportunity to keep from upgrading to a PS3 for just a little while longer.
Look for these new Digimon RPGs to land in in the fall of this year.
