Digimon World DS ("Digimon Story" in Japan) was the first Digimon game on the Nintendo DS, released in Japan and North America. A European release, entitled Digimon Story, was supposedly planned, but its supposed release date was repeatedly pushed back and it did not arrive in Europe.
The player begins by sneaking into a school computer room. After searching the Internet for information on Digital Monsters, the player is quickly transported to the Digital World. There, they get a Digivice and encounter several Digimon, including the first of the Observers which give Tamers their mission instructions, Azulongmon. After helping Gabumon recover a weapon, the player meets a pair of evil tamers who are swiftly defeated by a friendly tamer. The player is then challenged by BlackAgumon, and after defeating him, the player meets the second Observer, Ebonwumon, who sends them to track down the Digimon researcher, Phil. After rescuing his sister, the player fights the Digivolved BlackAgumon, DarkTyrannomon, and with help from Pandamon eventually works out Phil's location and rescues him. In the process, the player is confronted by Machinedramon, who explains that he is working for a character named Unknown-D. After defeating DarkTyrannomon, he is tricked into dedigivolving and defeated by the player.
The player is given their next mission from the third Observer, Baihumon. They are tasked to raise a Pagumon, which gets the player into several misadventures - along with a meeting with Alphamon - before the player visits the ruins of File Island. Jijimon and Babamon explain that the Island was attacked and ravaged by Kimeramon, and it is finally revealed that Pagumon is BlackAgumon, having degenerated after being defeated by Machinedramon. It asks the player to help it become Antylamon again so it can take on Kimeramon, which defeated it earlier. The player hunts down Kimeramon and confronts it in a factory, where they fight it. Upon returning, the player is met by the fourth Observer, Zhuqiaomon. At this point, a virus captures the other Observers and the player tracks down the first two, defeating them in their brainwashed state. Following an emergency Tamers' meeting, the player returns to the factory where they fought against Kimeramon to fight members of an evil group suspected of being behind the Observers' virus. After this, the player tracks down and defeats Baihumon, along with the leader of the evil tamers. He then captures Zhuqiaomon and the player follows and defeats the fourth Observer.
Unknown-D appears and reveals himself to be Alphamon, and announces his plan. The player chases him to the Core Field, where his armies of brainwashed tamers are defeated by the player. After a battle with Armageddemon, the player catches up with Alphamon as he prepares to use the leader of the Bad Tamers to unleash the Ultra Digimon, Chronomon. Alphamon realises his mistake, but is unable to stop Chronomon quickly. The player destroys the energy pods supplying the Ultra Digimon's energy, but Chronomon awakens and fights the player. The defeated Chronomon transforms into his more benevolent form and the Digital World is saved again.
