Another Eccentric Lady Joins The Cast Of Drakengard 3

By Sato . June 27, 2013 . 1:50pm

Square Enix’s upcoming PlayStation 3 action RPG, Drakengard 3, will feature talented individuals known as the Utatai. We recently got a look at Drakengard 3 protagonist Zero’s tragic past, who will be siding with dragons on the battlefield. Zero also has a sister by the name of One, who aims to one day stand on top of the world. In the latest Famitsu report, Square reveal one of their other sisters, who goes by “Five”.

 

Five

 

Five is an Utatai who rules the Nation of the Sea. She is one of the six sisters, including Zero and One. She’s very confident in her abilities, and is also known to be quite the avaricious lady. Her greedy nature appears to be difficult to satisfy, as she is quick to lose interest after obtaining whatever she was originally after.

 

In addition to her constant desires, she seems to have a habit of discussing dissolute subjects during normal conversations, such as talking about one’s sex life with little to no regard for the situation.

 

Meanwhile, the protagonist, Zero, has a lazy personality, but she’s also very violent in nature. This would explain her constant arguments with One, who is a lot more serious. These arguments aren’t comparable to what you may consider everyday sibling disagreements, either. Over time, the disputes have led to something more serious, as the two share different beliefs. While One wishes rise on top of all the Utatai to bring peace to the world, Zero’s objective is to kill all the other Utatai in the world.

 

It has yet to be revealed how the Utatai are born, but they say that they’re dispatched by the “Church” of each nation. The above image is a look at one of the Churches.

 

Zero’s battle characteristics show off her violent side, as her tension rises after being drenched in the enemy’s blood, and in turn goes into an “Excited State”. When her excitement reaches a climax, she activates the “Utatai Mode,” which grants her an overwhelming power to further annihilate her opponents, in a much more violent style.

 

Drakengard 3 is slated for release on October 31 for PlayStation 3.

    want to see gameplay before I reserve the jp collectors edition

    • MrRobbyM

      I like how there’s a collector’s edition and the option of even pre-ordering it before we even know what the game ACTUALLY looks like.

      • Solomon_Kano

        “before we even know what the game ACTUALLY looks like in motion.”

        Because there are screens of the game already. We just haven’t seen it being played.

        • MrRobbyM

          Very few screenshots represent what games will really look like. Especially this gen.

    • Curan_Altea

      For a lot of people it’s about the story, but if you can’t understand Japanese well I suppose a pre-order would hinge on whether or not the gameplay is good.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    The creativity in the names is blowing my mind. /s

    But whatever, seems like Zero and One are on rocky terms now and shit will get more serious as Zero kills more Utatai. Hope at least the interactions between the women will be interesting before they come to clash.

    • Brimfyre

      Fun fact. I actually invented the /s for sarcasm back in the days of AOL, ICQ and Usenets then once it caught on I realized good sarcasm doesn’t need an identifier.

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        True that, but it was for nothing else but emphasis.

  • Bur

    Still banking on these ladies having something to do with the grotesqueries.

    • Fire.fire.kun

      O gawd, the room. O_O

  • Scipio

    Stop teasing us, it hurts too much.

    • Brimfyre

      It will come.

      • AnimusVox

        And so will others if they keep popping out these attractive women.
        *ba dum tss*

  • Pockystix

    well, we jumped from 1 to five, got a whole bunch of utati. . utaties. . ? Those girls to go~

  • NightzeroAX

    I like Five…. I like her alot.

    • AnimusVox

      Me too, helps that she has an awesome color scheme.

  • Prinnydoom

    Well she is one fine looking gal ain’t she. Really like the artist for these games.

    • AnimusVox

      Kimihiko Fujisaka. And I agree, he does create good looking characters.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Can’t wait to see the other 3. Was reading the little spin-off manga and didn’t consider that perhaps they were all actually in the game and not just One lol.

    After reading the actual prequel manga, I’m interested in seeing if a certain one of those kingdoms doesn’t lead us to… well, I won’t say that. But let’s just say Drakengard 3′s position in the mythology is interesting.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      Been reading the raw scans or is there a translation out there?

      • Solomon_Kano

        Just raws, sadly. At least the art’s pretty, because I can’t read a lick of Japanese lol.

      • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

        Just my raws at the moment I’m afraid. I’ve been waiting for my translator to do them but there’s been no response so far.

        So I may need to get another translator for it (I have already cleaned up all of the raws, but I haven’t uploaded my cleaned copies). I could give it a shot but the dialogue may not be 100% spot on which is why I was after a translator in the first place… >_<

        • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

          Oh cool, I didn’t know it was you who had released the raws. How long does a project like this usually take from once you get the raw scans to the final translated release? Was always interested in how the scanlation process works.

          • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

            Can depend. Some translators take a few minutes to hours on chapters. Cleaning can take anywhere from a few minutes to a day or two depending on the amount of effort, quality needed but it varies depending on the raw scans.

            Magazine based raws will only ever get to medium quality, raw scans from volumes will always be the best to use. It’s doubtful that there will be Drakengard manga volumes so I have been debinding magazine issues and storing them in a folder once I’ve scanned them in, sent the resized raws (which are what I’ve uploaded onto my site) to the translator, cleaned the raws and have prepared everything for typesetting.

            I’ve not gotten anything back from the translator though, so I’m not sure if I should message the translator (as he said he was working) or not as there wasn’t much of a specific timeframe given OR if I should start attempting to translate it all myself OR try and get another translator and quality control my own notes and differences (like Cult of Angels in the Japanese version is actually the Cult of Watchers in the English version due to censorship of the original Drakengard game).

            If I translate it myself, the text may not be 100% and it takes me a few days to do it as I would need to constantly reference the kanji used.

          • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

            Very cool. Have you been doing this stuff long? Website?

          • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

            Honestly put – I just started with these Drag-on Dragoon mangas. Otherwise I’ve cleaned some Clock Tower comics which are on my main site.

            crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com is my Drakengard/NieR dedicated section to my site.

            It’s still a work-in-progress and I need to put up a LOT of scans (hopefully I can scan The Materials & Memory of Blood books in without damaging them much because they were so expensive! >_<) and other things but if you check each category page you can see the general list of my Drakengard/NieR collection. ^^;

            I will be pre-ordering the 10th Anniversary box as well as a special 10th Anniversary Anthology Doujinshi (fan manga) as soon as I can.

            If they do another artwork with Father Nier, that will become Crimson Sky's new banner because the 10th Anniversary box's artwork is BEAUTIFUL.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      i’m interested if Taro will make a suprise by making Caim appear in the game, he appears in Shi ni Itaru Aka after all

      Also, hopefully Nero will also in. He’s too awesome haha

      • Solomon_Kano

        Yea, I didn’t want to mention Caim, in case he actually appears in the game. That’s be nice surprise. Sure as hell surprised me when he popped up in the manga.

        I want Nero in too! I wonder if all 6 sisters won’t have followers like Zero’s Apostles.

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    Yup. Definitely liking what I’m seeing. The visuals are looking fantastic, so this’ll give me something to look forward to.

  • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

    Milla Maxwell?? Uh… Did nobody tell her that Tales of Xillia is in the Namco block next street?

    • Ferrick

      i think that’s her overgrown sister, Milfy Maxwell

    • Solomon_Kano

      Shhh. This is the prequel!

  • SpectralRaiden

    The more news I hear about this game the more I can’t help but feel that the developers at Access Games are somewhat horny:-/ Could just be me though…

    • AnimusVox

      The same man who worked on the previous titles is helping with this title (writer) so it’s not just Access ‘being horny’ *finger quotes*

  • https://twitter.com/BinksFrost Binks5

    Looking more interesting let’s hope the final product delivers

  • SirRichard

    “Oh hai, Zero. How’s your sex life?”

    And then they fight to the death.

    Drakengard.

    • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

      In a nutshell lol

    • Taylor Davis

      That pretty much sums up Drakengard. *laughs*

    • Crimson_Cloud

      It’s gonna be a yuri finisher out there somewhere. ;)

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Oh shit! Didn’t see this coming! High “Five” Square-Enix, high “Five” =P

    So hyped for this game =^_^=

    EDIT: This intrigues me as there also might be a Two, Three, and Four lol

    • Aoshi00

      Yeah that’s what I thought, the rest of the Utautai (could we correct the term ウタ-ウタイ please its not utatai *.*) sisters would fill in the numbers, reminds me of Four Murasame from zeta Gundam :) so going to pre order the special edition if other stores carry it.. All these E stores only ship within Jpn :( it would cost like half of xbox one lol..

      Five s hot, really like Fujisaka s art… Everyone saying the graphics look bad, it might look simple but I think it’d be beautiful in motion just like Nier..

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        Agreed, and I also like the art style and character design, and the graphics haven’t really bothered me all that much either =)

      • Solomon_Kano

        The graphics have definitely improved, so I hope people don’t still have a problem with them. The original screens made the game look bad, though I was in either way. The original games on PS2 weren’t the prettiest either.

        • Aoshi00

          hm.. I thought it looked pretty good, not the Last of Us, but it’s a different kinda game.. I just remember some complained Nier looking ugly, aesthetically I thought it looked beautiful like Ico.. I loved Drakengard & Nier, so I’m sure I’d love this too, story or gameplay-wise.. also the Last Story wasn’t next gen either, but did Fujisaka’s art justice..

          • Solomon_Kano

            Interestingly, I never understood the complaints with Nier. Sure, it’s not the peak of production value, but it’s not an ugly game by ANY stretch. But Access turned in some PSP-quality textures in the first screens for this (though Mikhail’s model looked really good). To be fair, they were apparently rather early in development, and it showed. The screens here and the ones of the Apostles look much, much better.

            But I loved Drakengard as well, so I wouldn’t have been bothered if the final game had still looked like that. Nier… I still need to finish. Haven’t gotten far, though I’ve had it for a good year now. It’s not bad or anything, but the game’s just not pulling me in.

    • Solomon_Kano

      http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/projects/DoD_S5_Raws/00/DoD3_SF005-006.jpg

      Here’s a look at a moe-fied version of the Utautai 5. You can see 2-4.

      • Aoshi00

        “In the name of the dragon I’ll punish you!” :) So this Utahime Five is like a spoof :)?

        • z_merquise

          At least now, we got an idea how the rest will look like.

          • Aoshi00

            Yeah, we see I to V on their foreheads too, they all look great, and chibi Mikhail :) wonder if they’re all bosses or playable.. can’t wait for this game and them to reveal the seiyuu cast.. All hail Cavia & Fujiska! Need the soundtrack, and the 8-bit one from LE *.*;;

          • Solomon_Kano

            Is that a chibi Mikhail? It’s a different color, so I wasn’t sure, but you can apparently read Japanese so you’d know better than I lol.

            One’s also shown with another dragon though, unchibified.

            http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/projects/DoD_S5_Raws/01/DoD3_SF002-003.jpg

          • Aoshi00

            Dunno how many dragons are there, I just know about Mikhail lol, but he’s Zero’s right? How many chapters are in this thing? I want this manga.. it’s like a short from a magazine or something? So want the S-E Limited Edition.. this promo is very clever..

          • Solomon_Kano

            Yea, Mikhail’s the only dragon they revealed in the game, I thought, and he’s Zero’s. But then there’s this guy and the chibi one who’s also a different color. So… 3, maybe?

            So far there are 2 chapters to Utahime 5 (3 if you count the little intro) and there are 5 chapters to the actual prequel manga.

          • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

            Just going from the little blue chibi one on the Prologue chapter having rings on his talons and this one does too that it may be another blue/black one similar to Legna (or even possibly Legna but a redesign – not sure) but this one doesn’t have a name so far.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Yep. Though there’s a hilariously gruesome death in there, so it still retains that Drakengard touch lol.

          • Aoshi00

            chibi w/ gruesome death, damn Yokoo Tarou and his twisted mind *.*;;

          • Solomon_Kano

            It’s kinda funny because prior to that nobody dies or, at least, you can’t really tell they’re dead. And then BOOM! lol

      • Ferrick

        for a chibified version of her, she still retains her “bunker busters”, as said by vashyron

        • Solomon_Kano

          She’s the touchy-feely type, too. Wonder if that’ll carry over to the game lol.

          • Ferrick

            OHOHOHOHO, don’t be surprised when I return fire with my trusty magnum.

      • AnimusVox

        Dawwwww wittle Mikhail :3

        • Solomon_Kano

          I’m actually not sure that’s supposed to be him. I’m thinking he might be Two’s (the one with the gloves) dragon.

          While I wanted to think it was just because they’re chibi’s, One and Five are accurate to their normal designs from their clothes to the colors, so I figure Mikhail would be too.

          I posted a scan a bit further down that shows another dragon, so I’m thinking each of the sisters might have their own.

          • AnimusVox

            Oh yeah, you’re right he/she/it does look different.

      • fyi1191

        Great. Now I want Zero to be a guy and have all those ladies be the Apostles.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Hey, she might make them Apostles yet lol.

      • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

        Hey, does this game have the other two characters you showed me in that image yesterday?

        • Solomon_Kano

          The female was One, so she’s the one (lol) holding the sword in this image.

          The guy was Nero and it’s not clear if he’s in the game or not yet. They haven’t said he is, so I’m kinda expecting him to die in the manga. ;_;

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        at first i thought it’s just a spin-off with chibi style
        then, a page with corpses come out…

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        I gladly welcome this XD

      • ChiffonCake

        Damn, all this talk about prequel mangas and spinoffs and such is making me want to consume all Drakengard media asap. I guess I’ll at least read the stuff since there aren’t a lot of chapters out yet.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Somebody else mentioned them and got me sucked in lol. Do it! I can’t read a lick of Japanese, but it’s all so interesting.

  • Jordan Coleman

    I can’t believe there’s been no trailer for this game yet.

  • Victoria [Rokuso3]

    I’m loving this so far

  • Magnumsally

    I really dont think this game will be good. Hated the first too. But will give a shot

  • MrJechgo

    Zero, One, then Five…
    Ok, where are Two, Three and Four XD ?

    • neocatzon

      They.. lost count

  • mockturtle

    The wait for this to be confirmed for America is killing me.

  • Go2hell66

    The dialogue in this game will be pure gold

  • Sim

    Looks great so far, though that one girl looks alot like manah but it might not be her at all… same with Lumina & Serah i guess lol

    • Solomon_Kano

      I don’t want to spoil anything, but the prequel manga makes it clear that One isn’t Manah.

      • Sim

        thats good to know.. though they still do look alike. :)

  • AnimusVox

    Five looks like a piece of ‘GOOD GOD’, wrapped up in some ‘HAVE MERCY’, with a side of ‘MMM!’

  • Tim Lewis

    What they fail to mention is that the October 31st release date is the Japanese release. If we see it stateside, its not gonna be until at least February.

  • Slayven19

    5 is a fine piece of work, I really love the artwork and design of her.

  • https://twitter.com/GaleGlory89 KiQun

    Five’s smirk looks kinda twisted. Well, this is Drakengard alright.

    The latest batch of ss feel like some improvement in graphic.

    • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

      This I like =^_^=

    • Vash bane

      too bad zero gonna cut her up would love to use her…I like that sword

  • Fire.fire.kun

    Looks like we now know where all hot chicks in FF XV went.
    Dragengard 3 is sounding a lot like Iris Heart the Video game.

    This image of Zero is so mesmerizing beatiful, But i sensed fear in this image of One. 0_0

  • Chiupon

    I was quite worried about the other utahime’s designs because of how they appear in Utahime 5, but I’m relieved to see that they translated over into the main artstyle VERY well. 5′s really cute :D

  • Vash bane

    ““goes into a Excited State”. “When her excitement reaches a reaches a climax”
    omg :O

      Yeah…Zero has some issuesXD

      • AnimusVox

        That’s putting it lightly :L

  • Z3

    Isn’t it Utautai? not Utatai?

  • deadMastershiro

    I know five has clothes but i feel like im looking at a naked lady.

  • Göran Isacson

    … So Five is greedy, Zero is wrathful, and One is prideful enough that she believes she can bring peace to the whole world? I may, just MAY be noticing a theme here.

  • SoundMatch

    I need to see some gameplay. now would be a good time.

  • Alberto Maytorena

    Zero – Lust
    One – Pride (?)
    Two – ???
    Three – ???
    Four – ???
    Five – Greed
    Six – ???

    • AnimusVox

      Huh I never though of them as representing the deadly sins. Though I’d probably put Zero as ‘wrath’. Maybe.

    • Nitraion

      Umm i’m pretty sure that Five is Lust…
      Zero is either greed or wrath..

      • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

        These are the Utautai’s profiles from Utahime Five and my notes regarding Five’s profile I posted in response to discussion on GameFAQs. Just some general mixed ideas as well.

        One I –

        The actual leader of the sisters. She has sharp senses and strong physical abilities. She uses
        her body and her sword in battle.

        Two II -

        She has a bright personality and is full of energy. She can summon a giant fist for battle.

        Three III -

        She goes at her own pace, she has absolutely no motivation. She lacks physical strength,
        however she can create and use wires to manipulate humans.

        Four IV -

        A reliable person, she coordinates the sisters.
        She can create magic barriers, she excels in defense.

        Five V -

        The sexy other leader of the gang, she specializes in sex appeal.
        She can also unleash a powerful beam attack.

        (She also harasses/teases other Songstresses… Namely Four by groping
        her chest among other things so her speaking manner should be more or
        less the same as Utahime Five).

        Regarding Five though, her character profile is more along the lines of a joke.
        She’s pretty strong but given her odd way of talking and harassing the
        others it’s just to show that she’s fairly immature (same with the DoD 3
        site profile of her wanting everything). So I wouldn’t really take it
        seriously outside of that she’s the one out of all of the Songstress to
        be most likely to take cheap shots and given the reasoning of the
        Apostles and Zero’s backstory – it’s also possible to purposely counter
        her.

        Though thinking of the Songstresses and Zero’s backstory,
        perhaps “Blueish-Purple” is Three? She has purple looking eyes but that
        would depend on whether or how they’re connecting everything.

        So with that I had also thought of these weapon stories from Drakengard 2 as they seem similar to the Utautai (and given the names are all related to music/singing/dancing)…

        Though regarding the Songstresses – re-reading the weapon stories of
        Drakengard 2 does seem to further look like Three is “Blueish-Purple”…
        Weapon stories from here:

        http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/925725-drakengard-2/faqs/43206

        Sealknife: Calamitous Strings
        (Three can create and use wires/strings to manipulate others)

        Level 1.
        A master blacksmith, embittered
        by the god’s maltreatment of the
        world, vowed to forge a weapon
        with which to destroy them.

        Level 2.
        The power of the seal negates
        the power of the gods, and the
        seal derives its power from the
        goddess…

        So the blacksmith sealed the power
        of the goddess into his creation.

        Level 3.
        The goddess lived for her love. She
        gave her body for the sake of her
        beloved. She was a fiery goddess.

        Level 4.
        Sealed inside was the fire, the spirit
        that nurtures the life of the red
        earth…

        Sealblade: Calamitous Verse
        (This could be Zero).

        Level 1.
        A master blacksmith, embittered
        by the god’s maltreatment of the
        world, vowed to forge a weapon
        with which to destroy them.

        Level 2.
        So the power of the seal negated
        the power of the gods? …And the
        seal derived its power from the
        goddess?

        …and this master blacksmith sealed
        the power of the goddess into some
        kind of weapon?

        Level 3.
        A trainee blacksmith heard these
        rumors, and decided he could make
        a tidy profit if he made a weapon
        like the one in the legends.

        Level 4.
        After many months of hard work,
        the blacksmith finally completed
        the weapon, but no one knows what
        became of him after that.

        Some said he had been attacked
        by a thief who desired the sword,
        others said it was the curse of the
        goddess, but no one knew for sure.

        Sealspear: Calamitous Dance
        (I believe that this could be Two
        as her Utahime Five profile didn’t really list any faults for her, she’s
        determined and full of positive energy to just help get the job done).

        Level 1.
        A master blacksmith, embittered
        by the god’s maltreatment of the
        world, vowed to forge a weapon
        with which to destroy them.

        Level 2.
        The power of the seal negates
        the power of the gods, and the
        seal derives its power from the
        goddess…

        So the blacksmith sealed the power
        of the goddess into his creation.

        Level 3.
        The goddess was a noble knight,
        Determined to carry out her mission.
        She was a noble goddess.

        Level 4.
        Sealed inside was light,
        the power to illuminate.

        Sealstaff: Calamitous Sonnet
        (Depraved love, water seal and that she was to die suggests that this could be Five to me).

        Level 1.
        A master blacksmith, embittered
        by the god’s maltreatment of the
        world, vowed to forge a weapon

        So the blacksmith sealed the power
        of the goddess into his creation.

        Level 3.
        She was a goddess who lived for
        her depraved love, and was fated
        to die for it.

        She was a noble goddess.

        Level 4.
        Sealed inside was water,
        the power to make life.

        Sealblade: Calamitous Melody
        (Possibly Four for her defensive magic that protects life and that Five was constantly harassing her).

        Level 1.

        Level 3.
        She was a goddess whose heart
        concealed a forbidden love.
        She was a pure goddess.

        Level 4.
        Sealed inside was life.

        Sealaxe: Calamitous Rhythm
        (I
        think that this may be One as her ultimate goal was to save the world
        and to bring peace to it and given her body being “different” whereas
        One has prosthetics it could also be referring to time given the similar
        appearance to Manah/Seere as well as the factor that One uses her power
        to strengthen her body and she appears to be able to use multiple types
        of weapons).

        Level 3.
        She was a legendary goddess who
        held the seeds within her body and
        saved mankind from ruin.

        Level 4.
        Sealed inside was time,
        the conqueror of space and
        all dimensions.

        I don’t know, just an idea given that there’s six Seal weapons and six Utautai.

        As for the deadly sins that would make:

        Zero: Greed
        One: Wrath
        Two: Gluttony (could be switched with Four)
        Three: Sloth
        Four: Envy (could be switched with Two)
        Five: Lust
        Mikhail (the dragon – dragon’s being proud and seeing themselves higher than other species): Pride

          Lol I was right Five is lust… XD
          this thing need to localize…
          But “Drakengard 3″ is already a localize name hope this can be true…..
          also i like name “Drakengard” rather than “Drag-on-Dragoon” that name really like a draging a dragon lol

            I was going to post a response earlier, I’ve just been tweeting back and forth with Mr. Yoko Taro and checking out new pre-orders for DoD3. There’s already a guidebook pre-order up on Amazon Japan!

            All of the articles using “Drakengard 3″ have been using it instead of Drag-on Dragoon 3 to avoid confusion as that’s how the series has always been localized outside of Japan.

            But the original name, you can take it as “Dragon & Knight” or “Dragon & Dragon Knight” or “Dragon-Knight” or “Dragon-Guard” if that makes sense as it’s Drag-on… Dragon – Dragoon.

            Just how I’ve always understood the title and it’s English localization to try and get the same point across. >_<;

          • Nitraion

            Who is yoko taro is he in charge on localization or something?
            Although i dunno the means of dragengard but drag-on dragoon looks silly to me… i mean you drag on dragon?

          • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

            He’s the director/creative director of Drakengard, NieR and Drag-on Dragoon 3.

            Draken = Dragon, Gard can be referential to either “guard” or even to the Nordic term for “garden”, but given the context of the game – “guard” would be the more literal term for it. So, that means the game’s title is “Dragon-Guard” or “Dragon & Guard”

            And “Dragoon” would be a member of a European military unit formerly composed of heavily armed mounted troops.

            Which again, makes the title again “Dragon-Guard” but as Caim fights with Angel and often on her back, makes him a Dragoon.

            So the hyphen is joining the words more or less. In Japanese the title’s hyphen is actually a character used after a long vowel so it’s kind of combing the words.

            Either way, either title works for it as they have the same more or less meaning. Dragon and soldier mounted on dragon. >_<;

          • Nitraion

            Cool man director himself says that maybe there is a hope…
            also i just wanna know is story writer is horny when he write the story because every discription of the character is you know…. XD

          • http://crimsonsky.stalkinginsanity.com/ Enetirnel

            No, it’s more aimed at darker takes – such as child abuse and sexual abuse taking a mental toll on say Zero and her promiscuity due to her lack of care after being emotionally overwhelmed at a young age with sexual interaction.

            Probably based on case studies from around the world on child abuse and the eventual results in later life.

        “She’s very confident in her abilities, and is also known to be quite the
        avaricious lady. Her greedy nature appears to be difficult to satisfy,
        as she is quick to lose interest after obtaining whatever she was
        originally after”.

  • artemisthemp

    So the release date in the West was?

    Oh, we also have a petition for the international localization of Drag-on Dragoon 3 as Drakengard 3.

    https://www.change.org/petitions/international-localization-of-drag-on-dragoon-3-as-drakengard-3

    Yoko Taro has said that he hopes to see it released in foreign countries. :)

    (You can see his messages in this topic on GameFAQs as well as some other ways to get some messages to Square-Enix http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/707565-drakengard-3/66597628 ).

    The one with short hair looks extremely similar to Manah when she was a kid in Drakengard 1.
