During the first 'Digimon Con' earlier today, the Digimon games producer Kazumasu Habu was queried about the possibility of the team porting, remastering, or remaking the original Digimon World game, originally released on the PlayStation in 1999.

The good news is he's "positively considering it", but he's not entirely sure how to go about it just yet, or what way would be best. Here's exactly what he had to say, courtesy of Gematsu:

“We have received many requests for a port or remake of the original Digimon World. I’m positively considering it. But at the same time, I’m also thinking about which choice—port, remaster, or remake—is better.”

“If I choose port / remaster, then I think it will be highly feasible. If you want a remake, we need to think about how many additional elements you’d need to incorporate into the game. Digimon World has a very good balance between File Island—the stage—and the Digimon that appear. If we add a new field—for example, the Folder Continent—or new Digimon, then I think we should treat it as a new product rather than a remake."

The producer finished this segment by asking fans to share their own opinions and said Bandai would "love to hear" what everyone thinks would be the best option.

“I would be grateful if you could continue to share your opinions with me. Please give us your opinions in the comments section or elsewhere. We’d love to hear from you.”
