Video Spotlight: The First 7th Dragon III Trailer Has Gone Live

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

7thdragon3

The first trailer for 7th Dragon III: code:VFD has gone live. You can check it out below:

As we previously learned, the opening theme is called Annabel and it’s by Vocaloid artist sasakure.UK. What we failed to pick up on is the fact Yuzo Koshiro has signed on for the game’s soundtrack which is pretty exciting news for fans of his work.

7th Dragon III: code:VFD launches in Japan on the 15th of October exclusively for 3DS. There is no word on a Western release and it’ll be unlikely that we get one seeing as the previous games have all been Japan exclusive.

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.

Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Revealed

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

SEGA have revealed a new Sonic Boom game to be released later this year exclusively on 3DS. Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is a sequel to Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal and developed once again by Sanzaru Games. You can view the announcement trailer below:

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal were the worst selling Sonic games in the history of the franchise. I can only assume the reason for this follow-up is because SEGA has invested a lot in the cartoon and all the merchandising off-shoots that have followed. In all honesty I’m glad we’re getting a sequel to Shattered Crystal as it was the most playable of the two original Sonic Boom games. I would’ve preferred Streets of Rage 4 though.

7th Dragon and Stella Glow Developers Imageepoch File for Bankruptcy, CEO Goes Missing

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

stellaglow

Well this is an odd one: following the disappearance of Imageepoch’s CEO Ryoei Mikage last month, the company have now filed for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy is apparently unrelated to Mikage’s disappearance and is blamed on a fall in company’s profits due to a sales slump. This was made worse by the rising cost of development.

There is no mention as to what will happen to the release of Imageepoch’s upcoming game Stella Glow which SEGA Japan are due to publish in June. I’d hazard a guess that unless the game had already gone gold, Stella Glow is likely cancelled.

SEGADriven wish everyone affected by this news all the best in finding work. We also hope that Mikage is found safe in due course.

The latest trailer for Imageepoch’s Stella Glow has arrived and it features some of the most detailed gameplay footage of the game so far. The game plays similarly to the Nobunaga’s Ambition series which means the standard RPG combat is paired with strategy elements. Check out the 6 minute trailer below:

Stella Glow is released on the 4th of June on 3DS. The game is currently Japan exclusive but Atlus have confirmed a North American release for later this year. There is no word on a European version at this time.
