Digimon Adventure 02: Tag Tamers is a Digimon themed JRPG released in 2000. It is the second in the WonderSwan series, the sequel to Digimon Adventure: Anode/Cathode Tamer and continues the story of Ryo Akiyama, this time bringing in Ken from Digimon 02. A rather important bit of character backstory, that managed to avoid an English release in any form whatsoever.
In the second season of Digimon, viewers were given a brief flashback of how Ken Ichijouji became the cruel Digimon Emperor. Like several other parts of Season 2, they didn’t elaborate any further on it. Fortunately, a series of games were released that gave the full story, in ways that are both confirmed and contradicted by the show itself.
Unfortunately these games came out on the WonderSwan, which never left the islands of Japan, so English speaking fans missed out on the adventures of Ken and and the game’s hero Ryo Akiyama… until now!
Years in the making, this is the author’s largest project to date. In addition to the translation itself, screen layouts and the game’s code have been altered to better accommodate the longer English names. Several visual glitches from the original game have also been fixed to improve the experience.
Get ready to purify evil Digimon, fuse your Digimon partners together for more power (seriously, you’ll be doing that a lot), and save TWO Digital Worlds! Now you have the opportunity to ponder the question that has stumped fans for over 20 years:
How does the timeline between the games, the anime, and the movie even work!?
