7th Dragon Developers: Future Setting Was “Just as Planned”

In a recent interview, 7th Dragon producer Rieko Kodama and director Kazuya Niinou revealed some of the planning behind the series’ shift from fantasy to a future setting. As part of the jump from DS to PSP, the team felt rebuilding the game from scratch would work better with the new hardware.

More importantly, 7th Dragon was to be a multi-part installment from the beginning. Niinou indicated the original plan was for five installments, with four set in the fantasy environment and the fifth to be more of a side story set in near-future Tokyo. The transition to PSP saw the team shift gears and work on 2020 before developing the other titles.
