See A Subtitled 7th Dragon 2020 Trailer

By Spencer . June 16, 2011 . 3:09pm

Before your hopes rise like a blooming Flowaro, Sega has not announced 7th Dragon or its PSP sequel 7th Dragon 2020 for North America or Europe.


… and that’s why we’re a bit surprised to see a trailer for the game with English subtitles. Developer Imageepoch did something like this before when they asked "is JRPG old fashioned?" Perhaps, Imageepoch added English subtitles?



If it wasn’t clear from the video, 7th Dragon 2020 takes place in modern Tokyo where players have to defeat dragons from space. You lead a team of Murakumo (made out of hackers, psychics, and samurai) throughout Japan. Imageepoch recreated landmarks, like the famous scramble crossing in Shibuya, for the PSP game.


7th Dragon 2020 is slated for release this fall.

  • They haven´t even announced VC3 or PS Portable Infinity, i find that more strange T.T

    • Fonic

      Heard they were deleting comments about VC3 on their facebook page too. Pretty disappointing.

    • DanteJones

      I know!! I want VC3 so bad. :(

      • Crimson_Cloud

        You and half of the world. ;)

      There was a post in PSO World regarding Infinity and VC 3. One of SOA’s representative mentioned that there was no plans for the two title to be localized due to poor sales of the previous games and rampant piracy.

      This was just a post from an individual. How reliable it is, well….

        And the reason why I hate pirates.  Siliconera even did a news post about the piracy on the PSP, the one with over Dissidia being pirated over five million times, and before the US release of PSO, it was pirated over two million times. 

        It’s sad, because Duodecim’s current lifetime sales doesn’t even equal the original Dissidia’s week one sales.


  • Human was defeated.

    • All your bases are belong to us.

    “Human was defeated…There is an only hope”
    I LIKE it! <-Read like guy from Robocop.

  • NetscapePizza

    chances of a western release are next to none, but DO WANT :(

    • Ryos

      Why must Sega come out with so many awesome games that will never see the light of day here?

    • How about a Japanese release with English subtitles?

      • CleruTesh

        If they go as far as an Asian English release so I can read the menus, sure, I’ll shell out the extra coin & import.

  • Code

    rar, I know it’s just a trailer with no gameplay footage but it’s just kind of sharp visually >w<' 

  • kroufonz

    lots of nice and interesting jrpg released in this end of psp lifecycle , and since psp pretty much dead outside japan we JRPG fan overseas pretty much screwed

  • I love and want this… but i found it a bit pathetic and really climax killer when the chibi characters appeared xDD

    • badmoogle

      What??That was the best part for me!I thought the combination with a real world setting made the scene look very interesting.:)

      • Haha, but it was like… EVERYTHING DEPENDS ON….. (after all the super serious scenes), and some ‘yaaay’ chibis appear xD, it felt like “o.O mindblow”

        • badmoogle

          Exactly!I thought it was kinda funny how they went from the serious melodramatic stuff to the chibi characters!:)If instead they used real actors it would have been boring for me.:p

          • It could had been just some eyes in the dark or a sword shining or something xD, haha oh well, its not bad anyway, it just felt climax breaker for me :0

  • I smell troll…
    Anyways I wish they brought over 7th dragon (ds). Too bad the ds is gone and I’ll never play it (in English of course).

    • Hraesvelgr

      I just want people to stop using the word “troll” for every little thing companies do.

      • The word “troll” ended up exactly like “epic” did, too overused in almost any sentence and people forgot what the words actually stand for..

  • TenRX

    I’ll look forward for this, it doesn’t matter if it’s all Japanese. Always you can figure out stuff. And others well, try your translator or some Jap teachings :P

  • Lordphantomhive

    Eh no gameplay but okay trailer. The game looks to be good but too bad it will mostly not come outside of Japan.T_T
