Digimon World: Digital Card Battle (デジモンワールド デジタルカードバトル, Dejimon Wārudo Dejitaru Kādo Batoru) is a video game.


Similar to Digimon World, the plot is centered around the Player, who is called to File Island and given a Digivice by Babamon. The island is in trouble because a dangerous card known as the Bug Card was excavated from the Ancient Dino Region, which is able to cause bugs within the Digital World, from minor bugs to major errors. Soon after the excavation, Ancient Dino Region's Card Leader Brachimon contacted Babamon in order to keep the card safe, but before Babamon was able to reach Brachiomon, someone had stolen the Bug Card. As the Bug Card continues to go missing, its effects start to show slowly to Digimon around the island. Babamon is one such Digimon, now incapable of leaving the Village of Beginnings in its current form. This is the reason why the player is summoned to save the Digital World.

The player's goal is to meet the seven Card Leaders around File Island and take from them the "7s" cards, which are required to reach Infinity Mountain, where all the data of the Digital World is processed, as well as to find the one who stole the Bug Card and bring it to the mountain, in order to revert the damage it caused and to prevent it from causing any further damage.


The gameplay is heavily based on Digital Monster Card Game, except there is Hit Points system implemented on each Digimon Card. There are 159 cards of total in this game, which can be classified into three categories: Digimon Card, Option Card, and Evolution Card. Digimon Cards can be divided into five specialties: Fire, Ice, Nature, Darkness, and Rarity. These cards can be bought or sold at Card Shop. There are also 7 rare "7s" cards, each of them having a powerful effect.

Preparation Phase[edit]

Both players should have a deck with 30 cards that is placed face down. The player can only create 3 decks at a time. A deck can consist of maximum 4 identical cards. To decide who battles first at the beginning of the game, it is determined by the player picking either the Agumon coin or the Betamon coin, with one of the coins chosen randomly. The deck will be shuffled automatically, then both players draw from their respective deck up to 4 cards in hand. The players may discard the cards and draw 4 cards again if necessary.

Both players should select a Digimon Card from their hand and place it on their Digimon Slot; in this case Level III (Child) Digimon is usually preferred. If Level IV (Adult) or Level 完 (Perfect) is selected instead, their HP and attack points are halved or quartered, respectively. If there is no Digimon card in hand, the player must discard their hand until a Digimon is selected.

Evolution Phase[edit]

After that, the player may use a Digimon Card to increase the Evolution Points (POW) as the evolution requirements, which is useful to make the Digimon stronger. The requirement is determined by the POW required on Level IV or Level 完 Digimon cards (Level III does not have POW requirement). Normally, the evolution can be done if the Digimon's specialty and its evolution's specialty are the same. The player may also use an Evolution Card, such as Speed Evolution, to make it easier for his Digimon to evolve.

Battle Phase[edit]

At this point, both players select either Circle, Triangle, or Cross as their attack. Circle attacks usually have the highest damage, Triangle attacks usually have mediocre damage, and Cross attacks usually have the lowest damage, but generally have special effects, such as lowering the enemy's Circle attack to 0. The player may then select a card from his hand or the top of his deck as his Support Card or Option Card. After his Support or Option effects are resolved, the battle begins and the damage are calculated to the Digimon's HP.

The player is a winner if he defeats three of his opponent's Digimon, or the opponent is unable to select its next Digimon before the rounds ended. The player may receive one of the three cards offered and Bits (money) as reward.
