▍Digimon World: Next Order Additional Characters
■ Rouch – CV: Sora Amamiya
Innocent and naive girl.
A mysterious girl who has lost her memory for some reason. However, her character is innocent, and she shows no sense of grief over the loss of her memory. She was found by the main characters when she collapsed in the server desert. She always carries a stuffed animal that looks like a Numemon, and her characteristic way of speaking is to use many unique onomatopoeic words such as “Bachikon” and “Derododoun”.
■ Mameo – CV: Kenichi Suzumura
A suspicious man shrouded in mystery.
A mysterious man with a black knit cap and yellow hoodie. He seems to be somehow involved in the anomalies occurring in the Digital World, as he was present at the scene of the “Cross-Construction”, a phenomenon in which Digimon suddenly transformed into Mugendramon and went on a rampage. He wears a Mamemon patch on his knit cap, which is why he is commonly called “Mameo” by the main characters.
■ Jijimon – CV: Bin Shimada
A Digimon who serves as the elder of Flotia. He has a strong sense of responsibility, but a somewhat indifferent personality. He is working to recall the scattered Digimon that were attacked by Mugendramon and to restore the town.
■ Taomon – CV: Daisuke Namikawa
An old friend of Jijimon. He is quiet and stubborn. He has now parted company with Jijimon and left the city. By someone’s will, he realizes that there is a problem in the Digital World.
▍Begin Your Adventure in Flotia
The adventure of Digimon World: Next Order begins in Flotia, a town that develops along with Digimon.
Flotia is a town with few facilities and inhabitants due to Mugendramon’s attack. As the number of residents increases and the town develops, new areas will be released, the range of places you can go will expand, and new buildings such as restaurants will be constructed and made available for use.
The construction of new facilities and the upgrading of existing facilities will make it easier to train stronger Digimon and have more adventures.
Under certain conditions, “ExE” Digi-evolution can be activated by using OP (Order Points).
The ExE evolution can be activated by using OP (Order Points) under certain conditions and allows two partner Digimon to combine and evolve into a more powerful form, making it possible for them to fight. When the battle is over, the ExE is canceled and the two Digimons return to their original two Digimons.
There are restrictions, such as the fact that it can only be activated once per day, so strategic use is key to finding the right moment to use it.
One of the conditions for activation is that both partner Digimon’s “Bond” and “Friendship” must be at their maximum value, so the bond that you have nurtured with your Digimon on a daily basis will be the power to reverse the situation.
