Drakengard 3 Announced

Drakengard 3 returns with more hack-and-slash, dragon riding action.

10 years ago this year, the first Drakengard was released. And for the anniversary, Square Enix brings us the latest installment in the dragon riding adventure, Drakengard 3. Drakengard 3 is set to be a prequel to the first game. According to Square Enix’s official website:

Players play as Zero, the eldest of six “Intoner” sisters who wield special magical abilities. Zero is on a quest to murder her five sisters with the help of her dragon companion, Mikhail.

Seems like she’s quite upset with her family.

With Drakengard 3 being a prequel, it’ll be a treat for old fans to pick up, as well as newcomers, like myself, who haven’t played the first two installments. I’m personally a big fan of hack-and-slash games so can’t wait to pick this one up.

Drakengard 3 will be released exclusively as a digital title for the PS3 in 2014.
