imageThe Drakengard series turns ten this year and Square Enix plans to release a Drakengard 10th Anniversary Box item. Famitsu reports this will have a special illustration drawn by series artist Kimihiko Fujisaka that brings protagonists from all three titles and Nier together.


Caim and the dragon Angelus from Drakengard,  Nowe and his dragon Legna, Nier and Grimoire Weiss, and Zero from Drakengard 3 will be on the illustration. The Drakengard 10th Anniversary Box will be sold on Square Enix’s e-Shop.

    If only SE would release that box in North America and Europe.

    • Scipio

      If only they were releasing Drakengard 3 in the west.

      • Teh Blasterz

        They still might, chances are though if there is one planned, we won’t learn of it till shortly before or after the release, though. And hey, if everyone who wants Drakengard 3 contacts Square Enix about it, that might help increase its localization chances as well.

        Meh, I put them in the last article, I might as well put them here as well. Be polite if you choose to contact them.

    Art is good! This is a nice way to pick up some exposure, anyway.

  • Tom

    Square Enix e-shop? Sh*t… This means the only way to get it is through eBay for double the price at least… They should make a Nier Play Arts Kai line of figures as well.

    • Neophoton

      Could always use a shopping service to get a hold of one. There’s plenty around, if you would like me to suggest one.

      • Tom

        Please, tell me more. I tried to convince the e-shop to post to Hungary but they kindly said no…

        • Neophoton

          Sorry for the late response.

          Rinkya, Nippon-Yasan, Shopping Mall Japan, Mandarake, and this is a “new” one, but Japan Shopping Service. They’ve just opened up their site, but I’ve been using them since they’re a two-person team and tend to be more organized on things than most places.

          NCSX is another option, but they tend to jack up the prices on these releases.

          • Tom

            No worries, it’s not like the item went out of stock already :) Thanks for the info, I’ll keep an eye out.

  • Chiupon

    There’s also some manga stuff being translated, if you look for it O:

    There’s Utahime 5 (which is about One and the other songstress’) and then there’s this other one, also about One, called Shi Ni Ikaru Aka.

    I’m calling it now, One’s definitely got a connection to the watchers. And probably Manah. bobs/bowl cuts/fringes in Drakengard mean EVIL.

    • Ninastars

      I’ve been trying to find all the Drakengard 3 manga people keep talking about forever. Where have people read it?

      • Chiupon

        I dunno the rules on links like these, but. http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/projects/DoD_RUD_Raws/

        they’re all raws; the numbers indicate chapters, and then the next section has page number. The manga is /highly/ nsfw, and from what I can tell it’s dark as hell.

        SPOILER: One also has a male torso; i think from the reactions of who I think is Furiae, One has female sexual anatomy. http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/projects/DoD_S5_Raws/ here’s utahime 5 as well

        • Ninastars

          Thanks a lot. AFAIK sharing this shouldn’t be that much of an issue since Square released some of the manga on the official site. The reader there was glitched out and not working for me though.

  • Lazulis

    Wait. Which Nier? Bro or Papa? It’d be awesome if they did both Niers…

    • Tim Lewis

      little nier.

  • Nephroxous

    Would this include all four games, or just Drakengard 3 + art items? I recently had to move and sold my ps2/3 and the first three games. Wouldn’t mind reacquiring them as a bundle. :)

    I kept the artbook/guide of Drakengard 1-2.

  • Tim Lewis

    What about Mikhail? Is he getting the shaft in this?

  • Neophoton

    I take it’s not listed yet? I’m not seeing it on their e-shop at the moment.

  • Tim Lewis

    Saw a picture of this already, and what they dont mention is that Mikhail is in the backround as well.

  • Vash bane

    rumors huh

    im on the subject that says sisters

    and who is one?

  • Mazdian

    Aww, I understand it’s focused on the main characters, but I’d love for the party members to be included as well. They’re a big part of the charm for these games. Hopefully they’ll at least be featured in the background.

    EDIT: Saw the other article. Bit sad to exclude them.
