Joymax announced that it will unleash the official Open Beta Test for Digimon Masters Tuesday, September 27th. Leap once more into the fantastic universe where our world and the Digital World are closer than anyone would have imagined – and unless stopped could collide and destroy both sides. To help players in selecting their initial Digital Data Squad member, here’s a short breakdown of each and their specific strength and starting partners.

Marcus is a hotheaded but very strong minded youth. When Marcus was just a young boy he was forced to take the lead role in the family after his father had left for the Digital World to never return. He bonded quickly with his partner, Agumon, who deeply trusts Marcus and thinks of him as a “Soul Brother.” This is the trainer with the most strength, so choose him if you want to see big damage numbers.

Thomas is a young genius, having already graduated university before returning to join the DATS team at the age of fourteen; he and Marcus often argue. His partner Gaomon serves as a voice of caution and the two make an excellent pair. Thomas’ biggest strength is his agility in the game, so this partnership will appeal to those who wish to dodge incoming attacks and abilities before launching counter-attacks.

Yoshino is the oldest member of the trio, and she often becomes frustrated with the behavior of the younger boys. Her low self-esteem can be crippling, but the journey to accept herself as she simply is has been a long one and is still ongoing. Yoshino’s partner, Lalamon who uses the “Nuts Shoot” skill, keeps a very strong relationship with Yoshino and often keeps the peace between Agumon and Gaomon, much like her human counterpart. Yoshino’s MP is the highest of the three tamers due to her extended training, so players looking to launch multiple special attacks should select this young lady as their character.

Hundreds of Digimon stretching from the first 5 anime series will be available for capture, including PawnChessmon (White), Gabumon, Veemon, Guilmon, and Biyomon alongside many others. Each Digimon will benefit from their DATS member’s strengths and weaknesses, so a Digimon trained by Marcus will differ from one raised by Yoshino.

A game for all players and all ages, Digimon Masters provides a simple interface coupled with an intuitive control scheme that is completely hassle-free. With more than 1,000 characters featured from seasons 1 through 5 of the Digimon anime, not only is it faithful to the series’ art design, Digimon Masters closely follows a story that will satisfy both loyal fans of the series as well as welcoming new gamers to the Digital World. Digimon Masters’ faithful recreation of the Digimon universe, as featured in the anime series Digimon Data Squad, is now being brought to the global market by Joymax.

Players can register on the Joymax portal at http://www.joymax.com/dmo/ to be part of the game’s exciting beginning.

      Yeah, what Reavstone said, it’s not as intense anymore if you’re doing nothing, just cheering on and telling what your digimon to do.
      It would’ve been great if it wasn’t a point and click, cause all you do is click and see your digimon moves toward the enemy and fight.

        Oops I replied to the wrong person

    I think is more like people wants to control the movement and actions of the digimon not watch at the sidelines like a trainer.

    This game wasn’t all I hope for it to be, it was mainly watching your pets (digimons) doing the battle and pressing skill buttons, almost like many other 3D MMOs where you send your pet out to battle and do nothing but watch.

      ……really?
