7th Dragon (セブンスドラゴン Sebunsu Doragon?) is a role-playing game for Nintendo DS developed by Imageepoch and published by SEGA in Japan on March 5, 2009.

Story[edit | edit source]

7th Dragon takes place in the world of Eden of which 80% is ruled by dragons, so the premise of the game is simple: Kill all the dragons, or the human race is going to be wiped out of existence.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

When players start their journey, they can create their own characters from the following classes: Mage, Princess, Rogue, Knight, Samurai, Fighter, or Healer. Outside of battle the characters will be viewed traveling the overworld from an overhead perspective, while the battles are viewed from a side perspective showing each character as they attack their foes.

Development[edit | edit source]

The game was produced by Rieko Kodama and the design team consists of composer Yuzo Koshiro, character designer Mota, as well as monster designer Akifumi Yamamoto. At the helm of the project is the director of the first entries in the Trauma Center and Etrian Odyssey series', Kazuya Niinou.
