Ever since SEGA announced 7th Dragon III Code: VFD would be making its way across the pond, fans of the series have been clamoring to know just when they could get their hands on the game.
Thankfully, SEGA kinda confirmed its release date in a tweet last week. The Imageepoch developed game will release in the Americas on July 12, and will also be available in digital and physical form for $39.99 on the Nintendo 3DS.

In 7th Dragon III Code: VFD, the world is engulfed in a time of darkness and great peril. In the year 2100, dragons have descended upon Earth and humanity is at the mercy of these terrifying beasts. However, not all is lost. As the protagonist, the player will team up with Nodens Enterprises — a video game company dedicated to stopping the dragon menace — to become a dragon hunter and eventual savior of the universe, according to SEGA.
Although times are bleak, Nodens Enterprises has found a way to tip the scales in favor of mankind: By traveling through time to three different eras, the protagonist can upset the balance of the dragons’ power. This will give them the edge to defeat the True Dragons, and stand a chance against the most powerful one of them all… the 7th Dragon: VFD.
Players will explore numerous dungeons in the mythical kingdom of Atlantis, futuristic capital of the land of Eden and present-day Tokyo. The main character can be joined by two squad members in the field and have up to nine characters in their party. There are eight classes to choose from, with 40 voice options and 96 appearance variation to customize your team.
