The RPG Where "S-Rank" Charisma Is Your Most Powerful Parameter

By Spencer . November 21, 2012 . 5:00pm

Yeah, we know charm matters in Persona games, but how is charisma going to help you in a post-apocalyptic world taken over by poisonous flowers? We’re about to find out because the new Idol class in 7th Dragon 2020-II has "S-rank" charisma. They have a unique ability called Order and support skills.

7th Dragon 2020-II takes place one year after the events in 7th Dragon 2020… so the year is 2021. By the skin of their teeth, the Murakumo defeated the dragons from outer space. Life was peaceful and we assume everyone celebrated by going to idol concerts. Now the dragons are back and attacking Tokyo again. That’s where you and a group of psychics and samurai come.


7th Dragon 2020-II is slated for release on PSP in spring 2013.

  • So the dragons are just back, because why not? Okay~

    Anyway, the idol class looks fun, I especially like the boy and his fabulous pose~

    • Andres Pena

       same i really wish that 2020 was released in the US

      • KuroNathan

         Sega has given up on the PSP unfortunately =/

      • neocatzon

        it will, in 2020 maybe

    • Kibbitz

      Well, maybe this time, instead of being from outer space, they’ll be from another dimension or time or dimension/time/space! =P

      And I wonder whether I can get by somehow on a full idol team =P I doubt it, but it would be hilarious, especially if they can get any set of VA fro [email protected] =P

    The day idols enchanted Dragon into their allies……… DECULTUREEEEEE!!!!^_^

  • shion16

    Which one is the girl?

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      ?The left one of course?

    • Clearly its the one on the right because they are…..

      • Göran Isacson

         … Is that an actual sub, or is it an image manipulation? Because if it is the former, I want to know what anime this is.

        • Robert Leonardi

          anime name is Code Breaker

        • The anime is Code Breaker, but no, I photo shopped it myself lol

    • Syn

      Its the one right!!! The one on the left is clearly just some cross dressing weirdo T_T

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    The story is continuous? Time to start playing the first one. Was planning on jumping straight into this but I don’t wanna feel lost.

  • Crosses fingers for 7th Dragon 2020 localization release for PSP/Vita =^_^=

  • Yuriangels

     Mmmmmmmmmmmm. the girl idol looks moe yummy. tee-hee and the boy cute too. ;)

  • Phlo

    She appears to have lost a stocking.

    • Syn

      Judging from her expression she probably gave to a homeless guy then procceeded to break out into random song to………….ummmmm help him forget his troubles???………..or may be she wants to make a new trend(Idols *sigh* they do the darnedest things) 

    • Nah its a relatively normal clothing trend in video game land. 

  • Is it me or Idol-kun looks like a saner/happier Shusei Kagari frm Psycho-Pass? And their outfits looks like its from TWEWY and it looks quite nice.

    Idol-chan and Idol-kun: Screw dragon invasion, I am wearing fashionable stuff and being a *ss kicking idol XD

    Me want in english >.<

    To those thinking “Oh, maybe I should give the first game a try now,” here is an extensive translation on character stats and skills. Nothing about the story is translated, but it has things on the quests too so it’s quite useful. Don’t think it contains spoilers.

  • Hm. On one hand, I want another member slot, to make a 4-man party. On the other hand, the 3-man party in 2020 was actually kinda balanced for the available classes.

    Eh, I’ll just wait and see what sort of changes Imageepoch will implement, now that Niinou Kazuya has left them for Square Enix. ………With my fingers crossed.

    Shirow Miwa is still doing the character art for this game? (*^*)
