This past week, 7th Dragon celebrated its tenth anniversary. Director Kazuya Ninou reflected on the occasion as well as his interest in continuing the series.

Ninou is open to a couple of things. He’d love to remake the first 7th Dragon game as well as create an entirely new title. In fact, he already has everything planned for what the new entry could be.

7th Dragon was made by the now-defunct developer Imageepoch. However, that may not actually be too much of a roadblock. Criminal Girls, another one of Imageepoch’s IPs, has already made a comeback, so Ninou is hoping something similar could happen with 7th Dragon.

The Art of Bravely Default finally came out in the west this week. Fans will be happy to hear that the next book, The Art of Bravely Second: End Layer, is also seeing a release overseas.

Dark Horse Books picked up The Art of Bravely Second: End Layer for English localization. The book is jam-packed with 250 pages of concept art and developer commentary.

When Persona Q2 heads west this summer, Atlus will be offering a “Showtime” Premium Edition. However, you should keep in mind that there is now “very limited quantity remaining”. Atlus has said that this edition “will not be restocked” once it sells out.

The Persona Q2 “Showtime” Premium Edition can be pre-ordered on Amazon here. It comes with the game, collector’s box, 5″ plush, art book, deck of playing cards, and a set of four buttons.
