If you grew up in the 90s then prepare to be overwhelmed with feelings of nostalgia because it has been announced that the Digimon franchise will be returning not as a 26 episode anime series but a six part movie series with the first film titled ‘Reunion’ due out on November 21st in Japan.
For those not old enough to remember Digimon was a popular virtual pet / monster battle handheld popular in the late 90s that also had its own anime series. The anime was localized by Fox Kids and ran in North America from March 1999 until March 2003.
Alongside the news that Digimon would be returning later this year a brief teaser trailer was also released. It gives you a good look at how the character designs for the original digi-destined have changed since we last saw them.
So which is better – Pokemon or Digimon? Get ready to relive some of the greatest schoolyard arguments of the 1990s.
