Website Counts Down to "Digimon" Virtual Pet’s 20th Anniversary
We’re creeping up on the 20th anniversary of the Digimon franchise, which first began with Bandai’s release of the Digital Monster virtual pet in 1997. Digital Monsters added an action wrinkle to the existing Virtual Pet craze, allowing owners to train their Digimon and link up with others to engage in battle mode.
Bandai Namco is clearly cooking up something special for the occasion, but we’ll have to wait to find out what that is. For now they have an anniversary website counting down to January 6, 2017, with more to be revealed on that date and in an upcoming issue of V-Jump magazine.
