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.

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.

Some new characters have been revealed for Project X Zone 2, the crossover strategy RPG from Bandai Namco, Capcom and SEGA.

New to the series is Phoenix Wright and Maya Fey from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Aty from Summon Night 3 and Nana Kazuki and Ciel Alencon from God Eater 2.

The news that will excite SEGA fans is the inclusion of Axel Stone from Streets of Rage. This marks the character’s first new appearance in a video game since Streets of Rage 3 in 1994. Axel joins Gemini Sunrise and Sakura Shinguji from Sakura Wars as the currently confirmed SEGA characters for Project X Zone 2.

Release Dates for Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth Trilogy Confirmed

Nep_ReBirth1_logo_us

The Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth trilogy is coming to PC and while the first game is currently available, the second and third haven’t had their release dates set… until now. Well sort of; one of them has a solid date and the other has a projected date.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation is released on the 19th of May while Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3: V Generation is set for an Autumn release. These games are HD ports of the PS Vita games and now feature the option to choose Japanese or English voice overs.

If you are unfamiliar with the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise then you can expect an action RPG which features a fantasy world themed around video game consoles. The game takes its moniker from the cancelled SEGA Neptune console and various SEGA characters cameo in the series. The Re;Birth games take place in an alternate world based on the video games of the 1980s. While the games are not published by SEGA, they are made in collaboration with the company.
