Sega Jokes About A 7th Dragon Movie

By Spencer . April 1, 2009 . 5:50am

Looks like Sega’s is having fun with April Fool’s Day by posting an “announcement” about a live action film based on the Nintendo DS game 7th Dragon. The movie (that doesn’t exist) is being filmed in England and has a theme song called “The Young Power”. The blog post jokes that Sega betting a fortune on developing the movie. Funny, but also sad when you think about a different video game company that bet the farm on a film.

 

Here’s a look at part of the “storyboard.”

    Hey, I’d pay to see Harukara in action! Game or film!

    …Wait, WHICH other company? Between Super Mario Bros., the Street Fighter movies, Double Dragon, and the dozen or so I’m forgetting, it’s impossible to pick out just one video game flick that the source material’s company was overly cocky about.

      Not sure if was Square (who hadn’t merged with Enix, yet), but I know the animation studio, Square USA (based in Honolulu) that worked on Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within went under when the film underperformed.

    I tiied this game out on my flashcart and now I think that Sega should release it north america so I can buy! I like its style a lot! (I use my flash cart to demo new DS games only, though I do use it to play old gameboy games to completion. My friends think Its weird that I buy all of the games that I liked trying out on the flashcart even though I could play them for free…but that’s just wrong.)

    I will love to watch if they bring out the animation movie..

    Sega isn’t going to do this, after all they were just fooling.
