Sega JRPG coming to Americas this summer


For Nintendo 3DS

7th Dragon III Code: VFD is coming to the Americas this summer, Sega has announced.

Despite being the fourth entry in the 7th Dragon series, Code: VFD will be the first to release in the West, as the 2009 Nintendo DS original and PSP spin-offs never left Japan.

Considering this one's bonkers premise, that sounds like a shame -- we might have been missing out on something! Code: VFD involves saving the world (in 2100) from dragons by time-travelling to Atlantis, the futuristic capital of Eden, and modern-day Tokyo. And as if that weren't bizarre enough, the role-playing game involves rescuing stray cats from dungeons and sheltering them in a cat café.

Code: VFD was the best-selling console game the week it launched in Japan last October.

Previous entries in the franchise were developed by Imageepoch, the now-defunct studio behind Time & Eternity, Stella Glow, and Fate/Extra that declared bankruptcy and shuttered last spring.

Sega of America plans to release Code: VFD both at retail and via the Nintendo 3DS eShop. No plans to distribute the title in Europe or Oceania have been disclosed at this time.
