Now here is something really cool. YouTube’s ‘Digicore’ is working on Digimon World Remake and has released a new video showcasing the progress he has made so far. As the title suggests, Digimon World Remake is a fangame game in Unreal Engine 4 that is based on the Playstation original game that came out in 1999.
So far, Digicore has created a big world that players can wonder with the main character. Players can have a Digimon and they can interact with other Digimons, and fight some of them. In short, this fan remake is at a state that can be actually played and is not just a tech/concept demo.
However, I do have to say that its creator will have to improve and polish the battle system. Right now, the battles appear to be way too slow. Now some may say that the original game has similar battles but they look boring so I believe that this fan game would benefit from a faster-paced battle system. Moreover, the attacks and hit reaction need a lot of work (and I’m pretty sure that newer versions will look better than what is being displayed here).
Still, we have to really appreciate what Digicore has achieved so far. Keep in mind that, as with most fan remakes, this is made by a single person and that it may never see the light of day. Ironically, this fan remake seems to have more potential than the official upcoming Digimon game, Digimon Survive. And while there isn’t any demo link yet, you can at least take a look at its current state in the following video!
