For a minute while watching Digimon World: Next Order's new trailer, we were thinking that the monster-taming role-playing game was coming to PlayStation 4 - and then we remembered that it's currently a Vita exclusive. Indeed, the open world that's on display here seems to be of a scale we haven't quite seen before on Sony's handheld. The draw distance looks impressive, and all in all, the whole thing's just enjoyably vast.

In terms of gameplay, taking care of your Digimon will be just as important as training them, and a healthy measure of both love and discipline ensures that they'll digivolve into something suitably powerful. The game's set to release in Japan next year, and with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth coming West in 2016, there's hope of localisation for this one, too.
