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.
