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.

SEGA on Sonic being linked to Nintendo and collaborating with the company
Posted on 1 year ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News | 35 Comments | 0 Likes
Nintendo and SEGA have formed a close relationship over the past several years through Sonic. The character appeared in Smash Bros., teamed up with Mario in multiple games based on the Olympics, and more.
Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka spoke about Sonic’s link to Nintendo in this week’s issue of MCV. Here’s what he had to say about that:
“When SEGA stopped making hardware and just started doing software, the first platform that we released Sonic on was a Nintendo console. We felt from the very beginning, that the Nintendo platforms were where the passionate Sonic fans were. Historically that is where our relationship started with Nintendo. Unfortunately, the Wii U didn’t manage to get as many gamers on the hardware as we would have liked. That was unfortunate for Sonic because we didn’t get the mass of people to enjoy the content. But Nintendo has always been a great partner, we have Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Sonic in Super Smash Bros… we really appreciate the work that they do.”
SEGA: “huge emphasis on quality” with Sonic, wants him to be “an entertainment icon”

Over the past year, SEGA has often spoken about wanting to ensure that the series returns to quality. This is something that Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka and Sonic chief brand officer Ivo Gerscovich reiterated in the latest issue of MCV.
First, Iizuka said: “We want to release good titles to all the players, and that is the challenge for us moving forward – making sure our games are great.”
Gerscovich spoke about the Sonic franchise as well, offering the following comments:
“SEGA is really – as of this last year – putting a huge emphasis on quality. One of the things about Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is that we held the title for a year, which is not something SEGA has traditionally done, but this focus on quality is really about trying to take Sonic back to where it used to be.”
“We are really focused on turning Sonic into an entertainment icon, not just a games icon. We want to go across all platforms and elevate his status even further, which explains why we are doing so much.”
Gerscovich also said that there are a “lot of new announcements” to come for Sonic.
