Features of the Digital Monster X

Unlike the 20th anniversary Digimon virtual pets, the Digital Monster X has a few key benefits:

  • Unique pixel art close-ups of Digimon during excellent attacks
  • ‘Pause’ the device by turning the lights off during the day
  • Adventure mode with about 30 areas
  • Roster of X-antibody Digimon
  • XAI system which affects the attack gauge’s speed which appears before battle

Difference from the Japanese devices

Because the shells are different, it is currently unknown what differences there will be (if any) between the US and Japanese releases. One issue that marred the original Digital Monster X devices in Japan were their dark screens and the limited roster of Digimon that could be raised. We expect the screen to be better with the US release.
