7thdragon3

The 7th Dragon series returns to Japan for its third installment, 7th Dragon III: code:VFD for the 3DS.

The RPG series has stayed Japan exclusive for its entirety but it’s notable for being produced by Rieko Kodama, creator of the Phantasy Star franchise.

Not much is known about 7th Dragon III outside what is currently displayed on the official website. The main theme will be produced by famed vocaloid artist sasakure.UK.

Cancelled Vectorman 3 Concept Art Discovered

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

vectorman3

Unseen 64 have unearthed concept art for a planned (but ultimately scrapped) third Vectorman game. The working title for the game was Vectorman 3: Ultra and it was in development for the SEGA Saturn by the original Blue Sky development team.

You can view the full gallery of concept art over at Unseen 64.

It’s also worth noting that this is a different Vectorman game than the one SEGA would later try and revive the franchise with. That game was a PS2 game that was being developed by Pseudo Interactive but this was eventually cancelled as well.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax North American Release Date Confirmed

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

dengeki

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax will release in North America on August the 25th.

A European release date has yet to be set in stone but the North American release date allows us to ballpark the EU one. Keep your eyes set on the 28th of August as EU games are generally released on a Friday. Those lucky Americans also get a physical release of the game on PS3 and Vita while us Europeans only get a digital release.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is a 2D one-on-one fighter based on various manga franchises like Sword Art Online and Accel World. SEGA cameos are also included by way of Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter and Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles.
