Digimon Story: Lost Evolution (Japanese: デジモンストーリー ロストエボリューション, Hepburn: Dejimon Sutōrī Rosuto Eboryūshon) is a role-playing video game published by Bandai Namco Games for the Nintendo DS. It is the fifth Digimon game for the handheld, and the third game in the Digimon Story sub-series. The title was released exclusively in Japan on July 1, 2010, and features 314 unique Digimon species.


Players assume the role of either Shu (シュウ) or Kizuna (キズナ), male and female Japanese fifth-graders respectively, who have just moved to a new district.[1] After witnessing a luminous object falling into the mountains during a fireworks ceremony, they are transported to the Digital World, where they meet their Digimon partners. They are joined by classmates Hiroyuki (ヒロユキ), a curious troublemaker, and Asuka (アスカ), a caring, older-sister type, along with Hiroyuki's second-grade younger sister Yui (ユイ) and her friend, a first-grader named Takuto (タクト).[2] Together, they must aid their Digimon companions while thwarting a group of villains named Uno, Dos, and Tres.[3]


In November 2009, Bandai Namco Games launched a teaser website with a countdown to the reveal of a new title referred to only as "RPG_LOST" and "The RPG that will return".[4] On November 20, the timer reached zero and officially revealed Digimon Story: Lost Evolution, along with a release date set for the following year.[5] The game received a final release date the following April, along with an official website that revealed additional content as visitors completed minigames.[6]
