posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official YouTube channel for the 7th Dragon 2020 franchise began streaming two promotional videos on Thursday for the 7th Dragon 2020-II sequel game for PlayStation Portable. The first video highlights the game's Hacker class, and the second video highlights the game's character creation system.
The sequel game will take place in 2021, one year after the first game. Dragons have begun to invade Tokyo again after a brief respite of peace. Players will again form parties from members of the special force "Murakumo" to fight the dragons. In addition to singing the theme song, virtual idol Hatsune Miku will sing versions of all of the game's background music. Players will also be able to meet the virtual singer in the game.
The game will feature an improved character creation system that will include 40 different voice actors and actresses to choose from in addition to appearance and occupation. Dogs' Shirow Miwa will again handle character design, and Yūzō Koshiro will again handle the music.
The sequel is slated to ship for the PlayStation Portable on April 18. Those who pre-order will receive a 7th Dragon 2020-II Bibliography CD with a special remix of five background music tracks, the short version of Hatsune Miku's theme song, a collection of player character sample voices, and a booklet.
Sega released the first 7th Dragon 2020 game for the PSP in 2011. The 7th Dragon 2020 games are spinoffs of the original 7th Dragon video game that Sega released on the Nintendo DS in 2009.
