Age of dragons. Lots of them.
The age of dragons is here! 7th Dragon III Code: VFD is coming out on the 12th of July 2016 for 3DS and there is a full trailer to enjoy if you need to be convinced to pick up this exciting new JRPG.
For those who are already pumped for the release or have been mystified by the trailer and simply can’t wait a couple of days to pick up the game, there is a demo you can download and play in the Ninendo eShop right now!
If you prefer to read all about it rather than play the demo, you can read a rundown of what 7th Dragon III Code: VFD has to offer here. Also featured: drooling over the awesome art book for the game.
So by now you should know that 7th Dragon is offering some excellent timetravelling, dragon-slaying action through three different eras (present-day Tokyo, ancient Atlantis and futuristic Eden). You will also be aware that you are able to fully customise your party – a team of professional dragon hunters – with 96 appearance variations to choose from and eight unique classes to utilise.
On top of that, players will have to maintain party synergies and manage a cat cafe, so all in a day’s work for dragon hunters…I guess?
Coffee and a calico for one, sir?
But hey, the title said there was a special offer up for grabs and I’m nothing if not an honest game journalist.
All upcoming DLC quests will be free for the week following their release – that’s everything from the XP and gold boosting quests to the party character recruitment and end-game quests. All of the above will be free for the first week after their release only.
