Digimon Survive is part text, part strategy, new storylines
Digimon Survive Set in a world where Digimon are not yet digital but are actually awesome monsters.

There are 12 chapters in Digimon Survive, and each is split between Free Exploration and Exploration. Free Expedition allows you to select destinations on the map and your time is limited. Every time you talk to someone or trigger an event, time will pass, like in many ADV games and similar combo games like Sakura Taisen. It is quite similar to Social Link in Persona for a prime example.
During Free Exploration, you can increase Intimacy with characters, and gain new items and Specifications. Friends with a high degree of intimacy will also help you in the Free Battles.
Finally, you can also look through your phone’s camera to see things that are invisible to the naked eye.
Lines branching out in the story and the secret ending

Digimon Survive tactical RPG gameplay explained
Digimon Survive uses a tactical RPG system similar to Goblin Tactics, Final Fantasy Tacticsand coming Triangle Strategy. This means that the direction your character is facing is just as important as the altitude of the terrain.
You can choose up to ten units to deploy in each battle. Battles are turn-based, with the order determined by unit speed.
Each Digimon has different mobility and can only overcome certain heights up to a limit. Each Technique they can use has a different scope. Damage dealt varies depending on whether it’s a side or rear attack, height, etc. That’s typical. Goblin Tactics small items.
Your monster can use SP to Digivolve in battle into previously unlocked forms. When a monster is decomposed, it will continuously consume SP each turn. They will regenerate SP every turn if they are in their base form. You can also recover SP by talking to friends or using items. SP management is vital.
Difficult Mode in Digimon Survive
There are four different difficulty levels that you can choose in battle: Hard, Normal, Easy, Very Easy.
How long does it take to beat Digimon Survive, official answer from the manufacturer Kazumasa Habu
Kazumasa Habu explains that it will take about 40 hours to complete a route and 80 to 100 hours to complete all routes and remove all of the optional, challenging content of Digimon Survive. Those estimates will change if you skip dialogues or use the turbo feature in battle.

The destination of the spins depends on the Karmic point, depending on the choices you make in the dialogues with the characters. You won’t be able to unlock all the changes in one playthrough.
