Drakengard 3’s Utautai “Three” Is The Laziest Sister In The Group

So far, we’ve been introduced to several of Drakengard 3’s eccentric sisters. Starting with Zero, the protagonist whose goal to kill all of her sisters. One’s goal is to stop her. Four who is more reserved, but she still as promiscuous as the rest of the Utatai and Five harbors a greed that knows no bounds. Famitsu updates us on the new sister “Three,” who is considered to be the laziest of the bunch.

 

Three

Three, the fourth Utautai sister, governs the forest country. According to Famitsu, the purple-haired Utautai also seems to have a following among the regular soldiers. She has a rather languid personality and is said to be quite lethargic, which could explain why some of the soldiers have found a likening to the easy-going sister.

 

Three doesn’t care about things she isn’t interested in. However, she displays an unusually deep sense of attachment towards things she likes. She’s a simple and phlegmatic girl, who appears to be indifferent towards her older sister Zero, who’s made it her goal to wipe out all of her sisters.

 

In our earlier report, we got a good look at two Drakengard 3 weapons in the combo-friendly sword and long-ranged spear, which can be seamlessly alternated in the middle of combos. The latest update gives us a look at two new weapons.

 

Battle Ring

Out of all the weapons in Drakengard 3, the Battle Ring boasts the most widespread attack-range. It can be used to simultaneously attack all the enemies in a circular area. This makes it a great weapon to handle crowds of enemies.

 

Fighting Gear

Unlike the Battle Ring and spear, the Fighting Gear has a very short attack-range. It makes up for it by being the fastest weapon and it deals the most amount of hits. Similar to the sword, the Fighting Gear will make it easy to connect combos.

 

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

  • Guest

    Battle Ring is like Octa’s weapon right?

  • AnimusVox

    It seems that being drop dead gorgeous is part of being an utautai in Drakengard 3.

    Oh the weapons ARE basically chakrams, that’s what I thought. Zero needs a scythe.

    • Go2hell66

      would be hella funny if one of them was fat & ugly

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 水木

      Are you getting this too?

      • AnimusVox

        Heck yes, even if it doesn’t get localized this is one of the few games I’d be willing to import.

        • ShadowDivz

          Um… IMport?

          • AnimusVox

            Stupid auto correct >:c

      • ShadowDivz

        I dunno. I heard the gameplay of the first 2 was bad but the their stories were amazingly dark.
        And i like dark stories. Such a refreshing change from all the “everything worked out for everybody everywhere” endings.

        • deadMastershiro

          YOU NEED TO GET THE FIRST 2 GAMES AND NIER THEY ARE ALL AWESOME!!!

    • KuroNathan

      wait, I thought by definition utautai had to be gorgeous?

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    “she is popular with the soldiers”
    harem detected

  • Warboss Aohd

    wait…..are dey based on da 7 sins?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I haven’t been following news on this series. You might be on to something!!

    • AnimusVox

      That’s what I think and other here on Siliconera have noticed the connection also, despite there only being 6 ladies. I think it goes;
      Zero – wrath
      One – pride
      Two – (not sure, possible glutton)
      Three – sloth
      Four – envy (?)
      Five – greed and lust

      • Mr_SP

        Five is greedy, but not really lustful. I mean, she has *one* boyfriend, compared to Zero (who has both several *and* steals Five’s), and apparently Four.

        • AnimusVox

          Yeah, I just didn’t know know who to put lust on but you make a valid point. Unless there turns out to be like a seventh sister I’d say Zero may be wrath and lust.

        • schwarzmasa

          I don’t know, it seems implied that Five has more than one as well. Deeto is referred to as her “favorite”.

          …but seriously, I’d say ALL of the sisters can be considered lustful.

        • puchinri

          Greed and lust are a borderline thing, so lust may fit; it doesn’t always revolve around sexuality. For instance, a lust for power (versus being greedy and wanting material things endlessly).
          I can’t remember which Five is though, so I can only guess which trait fits better.

      • ShadowDivz

        Do we have any info on 2 yet?

        • AnimusVox

          Aside from how she looks, at least the moe version, nothing yet. But from what I can tell she’s probably the Tom boy of the sisters.

          • Rayhan PromisedGallery

            don’t really judge from the moe version, though. Four and Three look pretty much different from what i imagined after seeing the moe one

          • AnimusVox

            Yeah I don’t either but that’s like the closest we got until her Fujisaka design is revealed.

      • Göran Isacson

        You might be on to something with four equaling envy- at least it’s a viable theory, since it is possible she might be envious of her sisters more “brutally honest” sides. Zero being wrath and five being greed and three being sloth seems like shoe-ins though, but why do you think One is pride?

  • AkuLord3

    I like Three, her types are the ones i like the most (and with the purple hair~) <3.

  • Tom

    Zero seems to be a human at first. How did she became one of the Utatais? And why would Zero want to kill someone like Three? :(

    I want a hard card print of all the Utatai’s drawn images, hey look really good!

  • Magus KilIer

    I am really liking the Utatai, i hope brutally murdering them isn’t required to complete the game

    • AnimusVox

      Ugh I know, I don’t want to kill any of them. :[

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        Feels like Nier Ending B all over again

        • Josué

          Or even worse, ending C and D again.

    • Vash bane

      i know what you mean they sound awesome.
      I would love to play with them…wait

  • Damarius Wingfield

    DANTE DISC WEAPON I SEE!

  • fyi1191

    I like her design.

  • Altin

    With so many good looking Utautai’s, I have a hard time deciding which one I like the most T__T

  • Thomaz Barros

    It’s going to be fun to cut down all these cute girls in the end

    • ShadowDivz

      Someone’s got issues….

      • Thomaz Barros

        Hey man
        You gotta do, what you gotta do

    “Three doesn’t care about things she isn’t interested in. However, she displays an unusually deep sense of attachment towards things she likes.”

    I couldn’t agree more lol. I am very much interested in her, and yes she is beautiful as the rest of her sisters are. I wonder how her personality will come into play in the story?

    Loving her style too. Did anyone else notice that shes holding two pairs of scissors? lol

    • Wappuli

      And they are quite weird scissors with outer sides being sharp instead of inner.

  • LegoBaka

    I get it. They’re the 7 deadly sins, and this one is Sloth.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/EnvyMizuhashi Garyuu of Spades

    The laziest is always the deadliest. You’ve dug yourself an early grave once you get someone motivated to kill you.

  • BenderIsGreat

    I’m sure the rest of the world gets overrun with a horde of something horrible at the end, no matter what you do. In several different flavors.

    You know, because hot babe murder isn’t enough.

    Oh Cavia…

  • Victoria [Rokuso3]

    Thanks a lot for the information, as always.

    Is it me, or both her arms and legs are entirely artificial?

    I hope this gets localized…

    • AnimusVox

      I don’t think they’re prosthetics, probably just armor. I noticed Fujisaka (character designer) likes to put pretty detailed armor on his designs.
      Though I could be wrong.

  • DyLaN

    Her scissors is giving me Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge flashback. *is reminded of the hair p0rn*

    • https://twitter.com/polaritymanx StarFang

      Those are nothing compared to Bobby’s giant scissors from Clock Tower.

  • Testsubject909

    If this was Soul Sacrifice, there’d be this odd chalice shaped thing encouraging her on and asking her to sacrifice what she cares for most in exchange for fulfilling her wishes and desires…

    Now I want to see them cameo in Soul Sacrifice…

    • Ferrick

      she’d transform into a sloth if it is SS

  • Kevin Schwarz

    That’s common, there are tons of lazy people everywhere, why are they so rare in games?

  • new_tradition

    Kind of don’t want to go on a dark route, but I wonder if Three’s a hit with the soldiers because she doesn’t fight back if they assault her? She’s lethargic, probably doesn’t get into the heat of the moment, er go doesn’t want it, but doesn’t care enough to stop anyone that tries? ;A;

    • Göran Isacson

      … Thaat is pretty much dark enough that Drakengard would go there, true. Not sure if they will go there though since it seems the Utautai seem to be so revered and obeyed, on the other hand.
