Imageepoch’s sequel to 7th Dragon takes place in the not-so-distant future where Tokyo is overrun with deadly flowers. Shibuya’s famous scramble crossing (shown in contrast with The World Ends With You) is part of a dungeon in 7th Dragon 2020.
Rieko Kodama, producer, says they prepared dungeons based for the PSP game based on different areas of Tokyo, which she plans to share at a later date. Just like the previous game, players design a party – made of modern jobs like hacker and psychic. All of the characters are part of the Murakumo, a group focused on defeating dragons, that came from outerspace.
The Flowaro corrupted animals and turned ordinary rabbits to monsters. In the Nintendo DS game, 7th Dragon, stepping on Flowaro would damage your party. This time trampling on Flowaro, Kodama says, won’t damage your party.
7th Dragon 2020 is slated for a fall release on PSP.
