Look, making games is tough, especially with the way the last two years have been. So a lot of games naturally got delayed as developers struggled to make it into offices, and that’s fine. But when we say we need, and I mean need, Digimon Survive in our lives, well we’re just praying that it doesn’t get delayed again.
Bandai Namco originally announced Digimon Survive back in 2018, and it was likely in development for many years before that, this action-strategy twist on the monster-collecting franchise looks absolutely fantastic, which is why we’ve been so heartbroken to see it consistently get delayed, and its release date kicked further down the line. So, when is the Digimon Survive release date now?
But, there’s a glimmer of hope. It’s been several years now, and it’s starting to look like it’s actually a real thing that we’ll play on our Nintendo Switch soon. So we’re going to gather together all the information we have, some juicy trailers, and hope that this will tide you over just a few more months.
When is the Digimon Survive release date?

Is Digimon Survive coming to Switch?
Digimon Survive is currently listed as heading to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Bandai Namco did announce the game in 2018 though, so during the game’s many delays, it may shift over to the newer hardware. We won’t know for certain until we get new information, so for now it’s just the confirmed platforms listed above.
That’s everything we know about Digimon Survive right now, but we really hope that changes soon. If you are looking for even more monster-battling fun, be sure to check out our Pokémon Unite guides while you wait, including our Pokémon Unite Lucario build guide.
