Drakengard 3 Gives Players More Allies Than A Dragon

By Spencer . May 14, 2013 . 2:51am

drak3Zero, the protagonist in Drakengard 3, has a dragon named Mikhail as a partner. A giant white dragon is probably the only friend you need on the battlefield, but Square Enix’s game will give adventurers two more allies on top of that. Male characters known as Apostles can fight alongside Zero.


Dengeki PlayStation revealed four apostles like Tito, a heinous character that is armed with a huge spear. Tito gets pleasure out when he hears shrieks of pain. Decato is an extreme masochist that gets pleasure from pain, Cent is a handsome cool kind of guy, and Octal are the other three apostles. Players can pick which two they characters they want to bring to battle.


Drakengard 3 is slated for release on PlayStation 3 later this year.

    well looks like we found our obligatory sadist character
    oh wow and a masochist and the handsome cool guy, what a trio

  • Victoria [Rokuso3]

    A sadist, an extreme masochist, and a cool guy who may end up really bad (this is Drakengard after all). I’m loving this!!

  • i am detecting a bit of harem here with all of those four are males. I’m just hoping they’re not “bishonen”, well at least they are all crazy sadist haha.

    can’t wait for this game

    • Mr_SP

      To get the Harem End, you need to get the other four romance endings… by convincing them to murder their competitors.

      Alternatively… Tito and Decato enjoy each other’s company a little too much.

        I sincerly hope this is all just sarcasm

        • Mr_SP

          It’s really more like extrapolation. If this is more like Drakengard 1 or Nier, then each additional ending involves increasing degrees of “DOES NOT END WELL”. A harem ending, most likely, would involve at least one apocalypse.

          • Soroth23

            So just dont want to think of that.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    I’m liking what I’m gearing, sounds very Drakengish!

    BTW; “Player can pick which two they characters they want to bring to battle” I think there is one extra “they” in the sentence.

  • Hope we get a demo

    • Same here. Dying to try this out =)

  • Kittymimiko

    So the brilliant choice I have is to choose between a S, a Do-M or a cool type. This gotta be hard to choose! :P

  • Crimson_Cloud

    A Sousage team? No thanks, I’ll just need a Dragon. Oh… wait…

  • awaiken

    Out with this game already. I need this

  • Solomon_Kano

    Handsome cool guy sounds suspiciously normal. Watch him turn out to be the worst of them all. I mean, this is Drakengard.

    • Vash bane

      lol inuart

      • Soroth23

        And Legna

  • komiko12

    Some kind of number naming theme here.
    Cent – 100
    Deca(to) – 10
    Octal – 8
    Dunno about Tito.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Makes sense. Our protagonist and her sister are named for numbers as well.

  • I can’t wait for this! Zero and her crew just sound so badass. So happy they decided to continue on with this series. =^_^=

  • Bur

    I think this crew will have no problem continuing this series’ trend of relentless child murder. Especially Cent. Handsome, cool guys are the worst.

    • Soroth23

      idk, I think Deito is the one to look out for. I mean they actually say that he is a beautiful man with an extremely harsh, cruel and violent personality.

  • new_tradition

    I can honestly say this is one of the most unique cast of characters I’ve heard about for a video game ♥

  • Kelohmello

    I wonder if they fight on their own, or if it’s like previous games where you switch between them on the fly.

  • Lemon

    I read an article about this on a Japanese site as well (Hachima Kikou), and apparently these male characters serve as an ‘outlet’ for sexual frustration for Zero, too. Leaves me to wonder if they’ll get a ‘T’ or ‘M’ rating in the end. Not that it matters to me anyway since I’ll probably still get it, but the reactions have been pretty amusing lol, but that’s to be expected.

    • Warboss Aohd

      if it’s anythin’ like da First, a M ratin’ is likely.

    • Anime10121

      All Drakengards have been rated M, and trust me, they need to be. The themes and some of the stuff that happens in the games…
      yeah totally M.

  • Chiupon

    it’s like reverse harem wow
    I do want more female characters but I can’t see myself using anyone other than Zero anyways…

    • Soroth23

      well Drakengard isnt known for having an abundance of female characters. Furiae and Arioch in number one, Manah and Eris in number two, and now Zero and One in number three

  • puchinri

    I think I’m getting this game. No matter what.

  • FierceOkami

    So happy to see that they continue the series, i loved playing Drakengard 1 and 2. I still remember that cutscene in DG1 with those giant babies floating down from the sky, scared the hell out of me back then.

    • Anime10121

      Yes, that ish was awesome! lparchive.org/Drakengard/Update 53/41-teeth52.jpg

    • Soroth23

      dude, scares the shit out of me NOW still. I hate those things, they look too much like porcelain dolls, and I HATE porcelain dolls.

  • Anime10121

    Cant wait for this! Been looking for my Drakengard fix since Nier and this is looking to freking scrape that itch :D

  • Joshua Myers

    Cant wait for this to release
