If you’re in North America, you can now download a demo for 7th Dragon III Code: VFD. SEGA is giving fans a taste of the game before it launches in a couple of weeks. 2,039 blocks (254.875MB) of space are needed for the download.
The 7th Dragon III Code: VFD demo “provides players with a streamlined pre-made group with a character cap of level 10”. Best of all, demo saves transfer over to the main game. Doing so allows you to “refund all the skill points and customize the group any way you want.” It also appears that there’s some sort of reward for transferring saves.
7th Dragon III Code: VFD releases on July 12.

Zero Time Dilemma director shares Twitter message for fans
With Zero Time Dilemma releasing, series director Kotaro Uchikoshi has sent a message to the fans via Twitter. The full message, spread out over multiple tweets, reads:
Zero Time Dilemma was made by a small number of staff. I have seen them working very hard day after day within a limited time and asset. I am proud of them. And of course, I am proud of all the fans of ZE series. If there was no passionate action by all the fans, “June 28 in 2016” would become entirely different day from this timeline. I will say over and over again. You guys realized ZTD. The person who made ZTD is you. I really appreciate you. Thank you very much! Now, it’s time to decide. Will you play ZTD or not? The choice is yours.
