The press release that came with SEGA's latest video for 7th Dragon III Code: VFD goes to considerable length to emphasize that dragons are vile, deadly beasts. It's almost like they want to get the message out before something comes along saying that dragons can be our allies or something. Like what do they think we're going to do? Marry one?
In the world of 7th Dragon, at least, dragons really do seem to be a big threat to humanity, yet not one that can't be fought. The battles also look like they might be taken through time, from the past to the future of the story.
7th Dragon III Code: VFD is currently slated for release in North America this summer.
