Square Enix have announced that its action role-playing game Drakengard 3 is set for release on the Playstation 3 internationally at an unspecified date in 2014. This will follow the games Japanese launch on the 19th December 2013. If you don’t count Nier, which was a spin-off, this will be the first time an installment in the Drakengard series has been released since “2” during 2005 which was exclusive to the Playstation 2.
A prequel to the original Drakengard, Drakengard 3 transports players to a medieval world where six goddess-like sisters known as “Intoners” have brought peace to the earth with their power to manipulate magic through song. Harmony is disrupted, however, when the eldest sister, Zero, attempts to murder her younger sisters with the help of her dragon companion Mikhail. As the story progresses, players find themselves in a battle to unravel the mystery of Zero and learn her true intentions.
Featuring the series’ signature brand of action Drakengard 3 pits players against hordes of fiends and foes in remorseless hack-and-slash combat. Quickly switch weapons to launch devastating combo attacks to vanquish enemies that can only be defeated with the correct weaponry. Plus harness the power of your dragon for combat, allowing you to charge, bite, trample your foes and even demolish buildings. Given how long it has been since the first two titles in series were released, can we expect a Playstation 2 Classics or HD re-release of Drakengard 1 / 2 on the table?
