Sega have introduced two new 7th Dragon 2020-II characters from a special unit forces SECT11. We also got a closer look at the Hacker class and a peek at a mighty dragon that has been wrecking havoc in Tokyo.

 

006 005

In the year 2020, dragons terrorized the entire world, including the United States. After serving as an assistant for the President of the United States, Emel became the president of the dragon fighting organization, Murakumo. In order to help with the fight against Dragons in Japan, Emel was granted help from a special unit forces, known as SECT11.

 

007

Similar to Murakumo, SECT11 consists of talented individuals that have the potential to stand up against Dragons. However, SECT11 have more experience and have proven strategies that were utilized in a great war, which will greatly help their allies on the other side of the Pacific.

 

008

The President of the United States is seen wishing SECT11 the best of luck. He also reminds them to not forget their primary objective, which is still unknown.

 

Shouji Sakuraba

001 002

Brother of fellow SECT11’s Izumi. He is currently the leader of the special forces group. What relation will he have with the main character and Murakumo?

 

Izumi Sakuraba

003 004

A valuable member of SECT11, along with her brother Shouji. Her philosophy of combat is that power beats everything else. She has an extremely competitive nature, which can cause trouble to Shouji at times.

 

010 011

Shouji specializes in guns while Izumi is seen using a Katana. It is said that their skills match the abilities of Trickster and Samurai classes of Murakumo.

 

012

Here’s Shouji gathering the group to get started on task given by the United States Government. However, it seems as though he has some plans of his own.

 

013

Izumi is a citizen of the United States, but her name and personality shows that she has some sort of Japanese background.

 

In a recent report, we got a brief look at the Hacker class. Here’s a closer look:

 

Hacker Class

014 015 017 016

Hacker class consist of talented youths with an S rank in informational skills. Their main roles are to support allies using their abilities such as heals and buffs. They tend to be huge mecha-enthusiasts.

 

018 019 020

The ‘Hacking’ ability is the go-to move for Hackers. When used successfully, it can perform powerful attacks such as hacking a laser satellite to shoot a beam for massive damage.

 

021 022

The ‘TROY’ ability has a wide variety of offensive and supportive uses. For example, an ice attributed TROY can be set on an enemy. After doing an ice based attack to that enemy, the trap will do additional damage. The cure based TROY will cure an ally the moment they take any damage.

 

025 026 027 028

With 14 different appearances and 3 color types, you can make up to 42 different Hacker variations in terms of looks.

 

The main enemies of 7th Dragon 2020-II are Dragons, but we haven’t seen too many of them yet. Here’s a look at one of the more powerful Dragons, who also happens to be a commander of the scaled beasts.

 

Tiamat

名称未設定-1

Tiamat is considered the ‘Emperor Dragon’, as he is several times more powerful than your average Dragons. Using its powerful Crystal Breath ability, it has captured Tokyo’s commercial district, Marunouchi, and made it its own domain.

 

030 031

The entire area of Marunouchi has become a nesting ground for the Dragons, where you’ll see many different types of their kind spread around the area.

 

032 033

What was once a bustling shopping district is now in ruins and a dungeon you’ll be exploring in 7th Dragon 2020-II. Recapturing Marunouchi will play a crucial role in saving humanity.

 

7th Dragon 2020-II will be released on April 18th for PSP.

    Did the US President lose some weight? His face looks thinner than 7D2020…

    The Sakuraba (Lol I though of Neku 1st when i saw tht name) siblings looks pretty cool…. But they looks like the bad guy here….

    Somehow the 3D model of Hacker-kun looks more terrifying than his character art lol.

    Me want the game ;A;

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Well, just like the RL, where President get more white hair due to stress, games makes President looks thinner because of stress lol.^_^

    US President Wishes the games to come out in the west

    • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

      Damn, beat me to it lol. Ah screw it:

      Perhaps the U.S. president wishes for a localization as well =^_^=

    • fireemblembeast

      That was how I interpreted it at first. I was like 0-0 Obama you like this stuff? :3

  • komiko12

    I really like the designs for the Hacker class (both genders).

    • http://steamcommunity.com/id/noumi_kud Kudryavka

      I like how they kept the same clothes so the chibi version in-game looks pretty much the same in battle sequences, but they spiced up the style of the portrait versions :)

    “It is said that their skills match the abilities of Trickster and Samurai classes of Murakumo”

    Given in the prequel, Neko and Takehaya from SKY had that combination ability where they essentially enchanted his blade with ice magic before attacking your party AND you only get a similar imitation of that skill which relies on the Samurai waiting for the Psychic to lead and attack first before it triggered a follow-up elemental slash by said Samurai… I think SECT11 may well end up being a bunch of OP badasses, and that would be cool with me!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      OH YEAH! Except when they are the one OPing us.

      • http://steamcommunity.com/id/noumi_kud Kudryavka

        Haha! I liked it when they had that though, it made me feel like they were ‘actually bosses’ since they had such a special skill, especially when all the boss battles were 2 turns for every turn your party gets.
        But I’m still jelly, I want cooler skills like that too! :p

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    God, I need to play 7th Dragon 2020 soon. Love those designs.

  • Lilith

    Izumi is delicious.

  • https://twitter.com/Ni_Go_Zero_Ichi Project 2501

    Oh… so much for an anime Obama caricature. WAY TO BE RACIST, JAPAN.

  • Göran Isacson

    Kinda hilarious that even when they include an american team in their game, the characters are still Japanese. But hey, it’s a PSP-game, they might not have the RAM to include any other skintones but pale in their game ;)

  • fireemblembeast

    I’m gonna have to remember to check if the president looks like that in 2020!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    “Huge mecha mecha-enthusiasts.”
    Where is Gundam when they are needed?^_^
