Folks who missed out on the “Future of Digimon” panel at Anime Expo 2019 earlier this month now have the chance to see Digimon Survive’s opening movie. Bandai Namco released the video today, which was once exclusive to attendees of said event.

Looking back to Digimon Survive, the game in question follows Momozuka and a list of well known Digimon — alongside a list of new characters and digital monsters — in a story that you can alter with “life-changing decisions.”
