Drakengard 3 coming to N. America and Europe in 2014

Drakengard 3 will come to North America and Europe in 2014, exclusively for PlayStation 3. Square Enix today announced that the hack-and-slash/aerial combat game will release outside of Japan seven years after Drakengard 2.

Drakengard 3 is a prequel to the original Drakengard. It tells the story of six Intoner sisters whose peaceful reign is shattered when the oldest tries to destroy her younger siblings. The game retains the series' classic mix of action combat on foot and in the sky on the backs of dragon companions.

The game will cost $50 at retail and on PlayStation Network, and is available for pre-order as of today on the Square Enix Online Store. It's set to hit Japan in Dec. 2013.

    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure coming stateside, Sleeping Dogs getting a sequel, and now THIS?! GET FREAKING HYPED, I LOVE GAMING! Now I just hope they don't botch up the good and mature plot with a bad localization. Oh, and that the actual game is good too.

    Woah, what kind of game is this? I really dug that trailer.

    Looks pretty interesting. I beat the first Drakengard, but missed out on the second one. Hoping for more fucked up endings with giant cannibalistic babies! I would've thought the sister murdering the others would've been the villain but she's the only one with a dragon in the trailer and she shows up most often, so she might be the player character? That would be neat.

    Yeah! you play as her, zero, i think her name is. Who knows if they'll keep that for the localization though, having all the sisters be named as numbers is neat, but maybe two weird for the translators :p

    Square buttons everywhere will be mashed to death.

    II am definitely going to be giving this game a shot, I've been following the details about it since it was first revealed and it just seems like such a dark, twisted and utterly unique experience.

    Interesting... Drakenguard is one of those franchises that I got excited at the idea of it when it was announced, but then passed on it because of the middling reviews, then forgot about it almost completely up until it was brought back into my mind thanks to a certain GamesRadar article that talked about the most fucked up video game endings... And boy did it earn it's place on that list. Now, I admit I'm mostly curious about this game solely on the fact that the two games apparently had fantastically bizarre and messed up plots, and seeing the trailer and character design of this one... doesn't seem like it will disappoint in that regard. If the gameplay turns out to be competent this time around, I might finally give the series a chance.

    Oh yeah, I remember that. That was one the most disturbing thing in a game I've ever seen.
