Square Enix Packing Drakengard 3 DLC With Strategy Guide

imageIt looks like Drakengard 3 is going to have a chunk of downloadable content. In addition to the Drakengard crossover costume bundled with the limited edition, the game’s strategy guide also has DLC code.


The news comes from an Amazon Japan product page for the Drakengard 3 Official Fast guide, but there weren’t any specifics about the kind of DLC.

    soooooo… does it depend on the previous games? (story wise).

    It really looks nice and I am looking forward to getting it :-)

    • Ferrick

      nah, this is a prequel of previous games

      • Mantiskilla

        Haha probably a good idea after the debacle of the 2nd one. Man that one was just well…not good. Heck actually both were kinda lackluster but this one is showing a little promise at least

        • Ferrick

          well the second one wasn’t really that bad… gameplay wise it was abit of an improvement from the first one, but story wise, and character wise, the first one was done better… i just hate nowe..

          • Rayhan PromisedGallery

            yeah that girly No-Way doesn’t deserve his harem happy ending.

            Although i must praise that the second game really make big improvement on gameplay, and storyTELLING got better (chapter 9 being the best)

    That idea is kinda cool. I could see this becoming standard. Bundle your extra purchases together. If someone’s invested enough into a game to get a guide, they’re invested enough to get DLC probably.

    • Mr_SP

      On the other hand, what if they’re invested enough to get DLC, but not invested enough to get a strategy guide? Previous Drakengard games (and Nier) have been pretty friendly about re-playability and acquisition of specific weapons and items.

  • I think this is a pretty good idea. Trying this way of selling DLC doesn’t seem to bad. As long as it’s not DLC that’s needed for the main plot of the story, then I can choose weather or not to get this if I want. Once again, good thinking Square. =^_^=

  • awww I miss the days when we could get totally kick ass looking strategy guides but i suppose its only a matter of time before they disappear for good

    • I’ll miss those too! I have a collection of them for the games I played. Bought them as bundles when I could.

  • Ephidiel

    “dlc” most will be costumes i don’t really consider that content

    • Bacon_n_Lettuce

      Then think of it as “DLC” = Downloadable costumes!
