Drakengard 3 coming to PS3

Square Enix today announced that its action role-playing game, Drakengard 3, will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 in 2014.

A prequel to the original Drakengard, Drakengard 3 sees players transport 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.

Drakengard 3 pits players against hordes of fiends and foes in hack-and-slash combat, allowing them to quickly switch weapons to launch combo attacks on enemies that can only be defeated with the correct weaponry. Players will also be able to harness the power of their dragon for combat, allowing players to charge, bite and trample foes and even demolish buildings.

Drakengard 3 is the third title in the Drakengard series and is slated for digital release next year on PS3.

Only played a little of Drakengard but Nier, what a fantastic game that was. Sad to see it's digital only but at least we are getting a localisation.

I've been looking forward to this game for a while and have even considered importing the collectors edition that comes with Kaine's costume from Nier. I'm a little disappointed with there being no retail release though.

There's a collectors edition being released in Japan that comes with a Kaine outfit dlc for Zero. If you look at the boxart too your'll notice Brother Nier and Grimoire Weiss along with previous Drakengard characters.

Great news. Hopefully emotionally and story wise on the same level as Nier, or at least close.

I really hope Square Enix change their mind and give EU a Psychical version with Japanese audio, since its currently impossible to import it from NA
