During the recent DigiFest event, a lot of updates are shared regarding upcoming Digimon anime projects. And to make things better Toei Animation announced a new TV anime titled Digimon Ghost Game and a Digimon Adventure 02 movie (via ANN).
For the TV anime, a poster is revealed showing three trainees along with their Digimon silhouettes behind them. The new Digimons will be known as Angoramon, Gammamon, and Jellymon. The show is scheduled to release in the fall.
As for the new movie, a teaser trailer is revealed. It showed an unknown person who even though have a Digivice but doesn’t have any Digimon. In the later part of the teaser, it is revealed that he is going to be the first person to ever partner with a Digimon.
Digimon Adventure 02 was a direct sequel to the original Digimon series, and though it featured a different cast, some of the original Digimon Adventure cast were also there. The show followed a similar formula to the original but it had a much darker storyline.
Even though the show was good and popular among fans, it didn’t get the spotlight like its predecessor. Its cast was absent from Digimon Tri movies also. But fortunately, the cast was given screentime in the final arc of Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna movie, and now they are getting their separate movie.
It is also revealed that director Tomoshisa Toguchi and writer Akatsuki Yamatoya will be coming together for this movie, and as the matter of fact they have also worked on Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna movie together. Producer Yosuke Kinoshita pointed out that Digimon Adventure 02’s cast has a different appeal from the original Digimon cast, and it is the reason they will be at the center of the spotlight.
Though further details like release date or other plot details are not yet revealed, Digimon fans are already excited.
