7th Dragon III Code: VFD is set in three time periods: the past, the present, and the future. 4Gamer’s latest update on the game shares more details on the setting behind the three eras.
Tokyo (Present/Year UE77 – United Era):
This is a look at the progressed Tokyo, 80 years after the arrival of the Shinryu Dragon in the year 2020 and 2021. The Japanese Government had virtually lost all of its power, and an international self-defense force called ISDF is managing the peace and order.
The people are doing their best to revive the country that was in ruins after the fight with the dragon, but it hasn’t been enough. However, they’re still doing their best to go back to the way things were before the invasion.
The setting takes place about 12,000 years prior, in a world that exists in a different timeline. An underwater kingdom was established using a special ore called “Star Crystal” that’s found under the Atlantic Ocean.
The people living there are from a special race called the Rushe, and they established what was considered a high plane of civilization at the time.
Eden is a world that takes place in a different timeline that takes place 5,000 years in the future. It’s a world that shows a different kind of progress had science, technology, and lifestyles took a different twist.
This is also where the first 7th Dragon game takes place, where 80% of the world is ruled by dragons.
Here’s a look at some of the classes and their appearances in different eras:

7th Dragon III Code: VFD will release in Japan on October 15, 2015 for Nintendo 3DS.
