New details on the release date of Bandai Namco's "Digimon World: Next Order" have surfaced and as per reports, the game is set to come out next year.

In a statement, as cited by PlayStation Lifestyle, the studio said that they would like to correct and confirm details about the platform availability and distribution methods for the game. According to the studio, the game is set to be available to players in the United States in the early part of 2017, and exclusively for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system in both digital and box-retail editions.

According to Bandai, mistakes had been done in the initial announcement for "Digimon World: Next Order" and they regretted any confusion the issue might have caused to fans. The studio said that it looked forward to sharing more details about the game in coming months as it headed towards the game's launch.

With regard to game details, "Digimon World: Next Door" is set to feature more than 200 Digimon from the animated series, Gematsu reports. Hence, it is assumed that players will be able to play Greymon, Garurumon, and Angewomon, among others. Also, players can choose between a male or female character and explore the Digital World with two Digimon partners, which deviates from the 1:1 ratio in the anime.

It is added that players can raise, train, feed, and discipline their Digimon, and these factors dictate the growth of their partners. Moreover, training their Digimon in AI battle will boost character-monster dynamics, and eventually, the success rates in battle.

Overall, "Digimon World: Next Order" is set to be released for the PlayStation 4 in early 2017.
