Drakengard 3 Coming To North America Next Year

Another RPG is finding its home here, with the announcement that Drakengard 3 is coming to North America. The PS3 exclusive, which is due out in Japan this December, will be arriving our way at an unspecified date in 2014.

To mark the news, Square Enix has released a batch of new screens and a trailer for the game. There's a lot of footage of characters reacting dramatically to one another, as well as an impressive amount of blood. 

Drakengard 3 is a prequel to the first Drakengard game, which came out a decade ago on the PlayStation 2.

  • No dragon quest in US means I am still bitter

  • Was that a music video or a video game trailer?
  • I'm actually happy to see Drakengard 3 coming over to North America. The more RPG's, the better!

  • Crossing my fingers and hoping for more demonic babies

  • Loved Drakengard very excited about this release
  • Yay another crap games

  • Drakengard was soo metal! And why didn't the subs say "EREN" and "the world is cruel"?
  • Awesome! I never thought I'd see another Drakengard game.

  • I hope the first two come out on PSN. I never got the chance to get them when I was in middle school even though I had a copy of the first one in my hand but I never got it becaue I got Jak 2 and Need for Speed Underground 1 at the time...I still remember that night at Toys R Us.

  • There was a part 2?
  • YES! I played the first two and when I played NIER (awesome game by the way) and figured out that it was an alternate sequel to the first, my mind was blown. I can't wait for this... wait, it is a Square-Enix game that's not a flagship franchise, get ready for some delays, sub-par graphics, and almost zero advertisement, and budget cuts that will reduce any awesomeness the game will have. I have no doubt that DG3 will be a good game (a good cult classic anyways) but Square isn't really known for handling non-final fantasy/Kingdom Hearts games well. Hell, depending on how you like your FF, they can't even get FF right. I loved the other three despite their mountain of flaws, so I'm sure I'll love this one too. I just can't shake this feeling of dread however...
  • Never heard of it, but I do love my RPGs. Can't really tell how good it is from that trailer though...
  • Mod

    This is being developed by Access Games? It's on my radar now.

  • Is this release part of Square's "We Still Don't Get Why We're Failing" campaign?
  • Are you supposed to pronounce it like Draakengard or Draykengard?

  • Im very pleased that Square Enix is bringing back Drakenguard series. I love part 1&2. Now we need a new Parasite Eve

  • I've never heard of Drakengard, but after seeing the trailer and screenshots, I'm very intrigued by it now. Looks like a lot of fun! So, could someone tell me if the previous games are any good? The Metacritic scores look okay, but I'd love to see someone else's take on them.
  • So does this entry still include all the really screwed up characters I've heard about? I mean, we're talking all manner of perverts and mentally unstable individuals, plus a friend said one of the characters was something like The Omen, if memory serves me right.

    No, seriously, this is what I was told.

  • Looks weird and Japanese, maybe I'll give it a try.
