SEGA's 7th Dragon III Code: VFD releases next month in North America, so in anticipation of the release the publisher has released the full trailer for the game, along with some new news about their DLC plans for the game.
In the year 2100, dragons have descended upon earth and humanity is at the mercy of these terrifying beasts. However, not all is lost. As the protagonist, the player will team up with Nodens Enterprises-a video game company dedicated to stopping the dragon menace-to become a dragon hunter and eventual savior of the universe. Although times are bleak, Nodens Enterprises has found a way to tip the scales in favor of mankind: By traveling through time to three different eras, the protagonist can upset the balance of the dragons' power. This will give them the edge to defeat the True Dragons, and stand a chance against the most powerful one of them all... the 7th Dragon: VFD.
We detailed the DLC release schedule prior in this news post, but SEGA has now announce that all upcoming DLC quests will be free for the week following their release. Everything from the XP and gold boost quests to the party character recruitment and end-game quests will be free for the first week after they release.
7th Dragon III Code: VFD will be released on July 12 in North America in stores and digitally via the Nintendo eShop for $39.99/CA$54.99, and there's a special demo version available now on the Nintendo eShop with bonuses that carry over into the full version of the game.. All pre-order and day-one launch copies of the game will include a 28-page art book that's full of design work including that of character designer Miwa Shirow, showcasing the game's numerous character classes, enemies, and environments.
For Europeans, thanks to Atlus and Deep Silver's new publishing agreement, this game will be released both physically and digitally in that territory. There's no date currently set, although more information was noted to be forthcoming in the coming months.
