7th Dragon III Code: VFD will take you through its three time periods of the past, the present, and the future. Sega’s latest trailer for the upcoming Nintendo 3DS title takes us on a short tour of the game’s three settings.
The first part of the video shows us 7th Dragon III Code: VFD’s present world, or Tokyo in the year UE77—United Era. It takes place 80 years after the arrival of the Shinryu Dragon in the year 2020 and 2021, where the Japanese Government lost control, and the nation has been managed by an international self-defense force.
In the present, the people are doing their best to revive the country after it was sent to ruins in the fight with the dragon, but things haven’t been easy.
Next is the past world of 7th Dragon III, better known as “Atlantis.” This setting takes place approximately 12,000 years prior to the present, in a world that exists in a different timeline in an underwater kingdom that was established using a special ore power source called the “Star Crystal” that’s found on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
The people living in Atlantis are known as the “Rushe,” and they’ve established was was considered the pinnacle of civilization at the time.
Finally, Eden is the name of the future that takes place 5,000 years after the events in the present time. It’s an alternate world that shows a different what the world would have looked like had science, technology, and lifestyles took a different twist.
The future in 7th Dragon III also happens to be where the first 7th Dragon game takes place, in a world that is ruled by dragons.
