UPDATE (2/23): Sega announced that all first print copies of Sega’s 7th Dragon III Code: VFD will include a gorgeous 28 page art book. The book will give fans “a closer look at the design work that went in to creating the game’s esoteric character classes, ferocious dragons, vile monsters, and the environments that span three time periods.” The bundle will come packaged in a vibrant box illustrating the game’s design.


Sega just announced that 7th Dragon III Code: VFD is headed to North American retailers and the 3DS eShop this summer. While the 7th Dragon series has several titles overseas, this is the first game that’s receiving an American release. And if you’re wondering whether or not this will affect your experience playing the game, you can rest easy: Sega made sure to state that this title will not require previous gameplay or knowledge from the series to enjoy VFD.

Here’s what to expect from VFD, according to Sega:

In 7th Dragon III Code: VFD, the world is engulfed in a time of darkness and great peril. 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.
