The new releases manages to offer up easy, pick-up-and-play gameplay that anyone in the family can enjoy in this new story that is packed full of action-packed fun!

DIGIMON All-Star Rumble features a slower-based combat than usual for fighting games and requires more accurate control movements in order to carry out moves which could be annoying to some players. However, DIGIMON All-Star Rumble, has managed to create a simpler, more engaged fighting experience that will allow a variety of players from all age groups to learn the moves and is geared more toward family-friendly gaming than hardcore. Gamers can strengthen their characters by equipping specialized Digicards which take gameplay to an all new level since this will not only increase your abilities but can also increase your luck for damaging your opponent during battle. Digicards can be collected throughout the game's story mode or purchased from the Collector's Menu.

The story mode of DIGIMON All-Star Rumble is very entertaining and allows the player to choose from Agumon, Gabumon, Shoutmon and Dorulumon in the beginning with the ability to unlock more as they play. Gamers will participate in stages inspired by the animated TV show in an entirely new story that centers around the new tournament and naming the ultimate Digimon champion.
