“Official site update 5/19″:http://jrpg.jp/news/?eid=16&nid=107
Tokyo in the near future has suddenly been swarmed by a countless number of dragons.
The dragons’ territory is hidden in a swath of Flowaro…
Reads like something out of a kaiju movie doesn’t it? Anyway, more screenshots today, some map screens, some monster screens, and a few backdrops we’ve seen before.
Some screenshots of Shibuya. Of note, again, it is pointed out that flowaro do NOT cause damage if you walk on them.
Then a screenshot, again, of the Tokyo Government Office in Shinjuku. You can see a Murakumo flag flying outside. Apparently this is one of the last holdouts of humanity, and used to be a Murakumo base at some point. Things aren’t looking so great at the moment!
The Office has been threatened by Dragons.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the Office?
(But that’s it for now and next update will explain what the Government Office is all about.)
They’re also working on a First Impression Movie which will have chibicharas moving around. Looking forward to it
*AD 2020. Tokyo. A dragon hunting story (RPG).*
Out of the blue, Earth has been assaulted by dragons.
Opposing the dragons is only Murakumo, a group of espers.
Appearance, job, skill, voice….
Every aspect of your party can be arranged to your liking.
Make a party, and hunt down every last one of the dragons!
* 異能力者 means something like “supernatural ability users” so, “espers” for now
* “すべてのドラゴンを狩り尽くせ” is the slogan from the previous 7D.
Looking forward to the new game.
More news for today:
On Twitter, Niinou has mentioned that Flowaro won’t be doing damage anymore — which is great, seeing as the damage tiles were one of the major complaints of the last game.
Imageepoch is working on a new 7D game scheduled for fall, apparently.

… Sounds OK to me. Except maybe that last part. We’ll see?
I’ll probably be updating as I find out more news.
