Road to Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Edit: "You might want to tell Wikipedia about that." Yeah, someone told Wikipedia about that.
The Digimon Story series began with the 2006 game on Nintedo DS, followed by Dawn and Dusk in 2007, Lost Evolution in 2010, and Super Xros Wars in 2011. In America, the former two installments were marketed as sequels to the Digimon World series (along with Digimon World Data Squad and Digimon World Championship), however, they are in name (and crappy localization) only.

Ironically, an actual installment of Digimon World, 2012's Re:Digitize for PlayStation Portable, was never released in America. In fact, I believe a Digimon game hasn't been localized since the release of Digimon Championship in 2008. Maybe because Pokemon was just too popular, maybe because Xros Wars/Fusion wasn't as popular as the other anime installments, maybe because Championship sucked so much. Who knows?

Last year's Digimon All-Star Rumble was the first game to be released in America in six years. I guess the announcement of Digimon Adventure tri, a new movie series featuring the cast from the original anime, or the fact that it had the word "Rumble" in it, caused a renewed interest. In any case, it's nice to see the franchise hasn't been totally abandoned stateside.
