DSDigimon World Dawn/DuskBECSequels to Digimon World DS, play similarly, exclusive Digimon to each version (as is tradition)
DSDigimon World DSBECTechnically the first game in the Digimon Story series rather than a Digimon World game, very Pokemon-esque in gameplay
GameCubeDigimon World 4BECMuch maligned for adopting an ARPG format - why would you give Agumon a sword?
JP PSPDigimon AdventurePropeTells the story of the first anime series through 3-on-3 Digimon battles, also features a relationship system
JP PSPDigimon World Re: DigitizeTri-CrescendoPlays like the first Digimon World game, but also has an overarching storyline to follow
