We’ve seen companies like Atlus and Capcom release video guidelines for new games to prevent spoilers from ruining the fun for everyone, and now it’s Bandai Namco’s turn. The next Digimon game, Digimon Survive, launches this week, and Bandai Namco has released a special message via social media asking players to avoid posting certain content.
As explained on the official Digimon Games Twitter account, Bandai Namco doesn’t want players to post “anything” on social media that could potentially spoil the story from Chapter 5 onward for at least the “first two months” of the game’s release.
A follow-up tweet from the developer asks players to use “#DigimonSurviveSpoilers” as the go-to hashtag for posting spoilers.
“Digimon Survive tells a deeply personal story with many twists and turns. To keep the surprises special, we ask players to avoid posting anything on social media that may spoil the story from Chapter 5 onward for the first two months after Digimon Survive’s release.
“However, if you do post, please mark your content as a spoiler in a way that clearly indicates to others that spoilers are present. Let’s keep Digimon Survive a one-of-a-kind experience!”
Even if Digimon Survive players shared spoilers on Twitter in the first few months without the special hashtag, Bandai Namco probably wouldn’t be able to do much. However, it might be a bit different on other platforms like YouTube with video uploads.
