Impression Movie

The 6/9 official site update includes mostly old screenshots from the last two weeks, but also has an impression movie:

Transition to 3D seems a little odd at first, but I’m hoping the gameplay movies will be more impressive.

But hey, English subtitles!!!

西暦2020年
“A.D. 2020.”

東京
“Tokyo.”

ドラゴン来襲。 (Dragon invasion.)
“Dragons came out of nowhere.”

“Human was defeated.”

残された最後の希望 (Our remaining, final hope)
“However,”
“There is an only hope.”

異能力者(ムラクモ) (Espers [read: Murakumo])
“People called them Murakumo.”

それは、ドラゴンを狩る物語(RPG) (This is the Dragon Hunting RPG:)
“Hunt all dragons, or die.”

7th Dragon 2020
セブンスドラゴン2020

And the staff as previously listed.

Random encounters

“6/2 Weekly update”:http://jrpg.jp/news/?nid=113

Notes from this week’s post

* Random encounters like before
* Large Dragon symbols, similar to previous installment
* Chibichara attacks, now in 3D!

* Battle result screen is showing a character design I don’t think we’ve seen before
* Item drops: Nanomedica, “iron gigamouse”?. Instead of cash, there are “materials” of 0 Et, 0 Me, and 13 Cb … which looks awfully like periodic table element abbreviations, but I don’t believe there is an Et or a Cb…
* Gather materials and bring them back to base to strengthen your party, sounds like the old system from 7D and EO (loot = money + unlocks weapons, though no specific confirmation)
* Video coming Soon™ – 6/9 now
* Chara creation details coming soon
