The long-awaited RPG Digimon Survive was recently rated after a series of ongoing delays, so hopefully, we'll get an update, or maybe even a date for this upcoming Switch release.

To see the broadcast, you'll be able to tune in via the official Bandai Japan YouTube channel. The event will also be streamed in both English and Japanese, with a portion of the content swapping between the two languages.
