Dive Kicking Zero Brings More Drakengard 3 Screenshots

By Spencer . August 5, 2013 . 1:23am


Drakengard 3 follows Zero on her quest to dispatch her sisters. We’ve seen her use a sword and spear while fighting monsters. These screenshots show two more weapons.


The Claw is unparalleled when it comes to speed. This speedy weapon makes it easy to connect attacks and keep a combo going. While it’s excellent for one-on-one combat, it isn’t effective if Zero is surrounded by enemies.

That’s where the Chakram or Battle Ring comes in handy. This weapon has low attack power, but it is useful when Zero is surrounded because it hits all of the enemies around her.

It sounds like the key to Drakengard 3’s battle system is the weapon change system which lets Zero switch between two weapons on the fly. You can even change weapons in the middle of a combo.

Remember Three? She’s the lazy Utatai sister that governs the forest country. Drakengard 3 comes out on October 31 for PlayStation 3.

  • Are they all real siblings?

    • AnimusVox

      I’ve been questioning that for awhile. Maybe not biological or maybe they all have different dads or maybe they each have a different mom or maybe they’re all adopted.
      I don’t know :U

      • Ridho Siregar

        Maybe it’s something about them being “special girls” owned by the churches in each country?

    • MagisterXII

      I really doubt it. I figured they were just called sisters because they were all “Utatai” and all belonged to some group. I assume that’s how they learned to fight, and other things…

  • Changing weapons basically whenever I like is awesome =^_^=

  • Seriously. This game keeps giving a better impression the more I see of it.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Sounds pretty awesome to me. And tempting to import. (if it doesn’t come outside Japan)

  • AkuLord3

    I saw the title and almost that Zero was going be IN “DiveKick” lol but yeah more screenshots, more hype for the game <3

  • Thrasher429

    I wish I could import this but the highlight of Drakengard was always the story and I doubt I understand enough japanese to be able to make any sense of it if I did. Apart from being able to understand things like giant babies + red sky = BAD

    • Damarius Wingfield

      Just study the grammar piece by piece bro.

  • Kaitou21

    What can I say? Just another game that odds are, won’t be coming to the west…….

  • Monterossa

    This game stole all the women from Final Fantasy XV.

    • Mr_SP

      Considering the women in question, this might be a good thing for those FFXV guys.

  • Luis Camargo

    Want.Want.Want.Want.Want.Want.Want.Want.Want. ad infinitum.

    SquareEnix, localization ASAP!

  • Ferrick

    so there’s a claw weapon ? i kinda thought the claws are the ones you use during utautai mode, guess i was wrong

  • BenderIsGreat

    Whenever I see “Zero” in a headline, I think:


    Anybody else? Just me?

    • Just you

    • leingod

      Well, I do think about Megaman’s Zero, but not THAT one.

  • Wow he’s going to be using kicks too, this game is going to be great

  • karasuKumo

    I want an art-book for this game almost more than the game itself. The character art is amazing.

  • leingod

    The designs look better on paper than in the actual game :/

    • Thrasher429

      I think thats generally the case for a lot of games. Part of what makes art books so good I guess

  • Valtiel Ikari

    This is just beautiful! the art is amazing! I want and Art-book right now!

  • Alex

    I feel nitpicky saying this, but it still looks like a PS2 game.

  • 栗場 江理久

    OMGOSH Three be looking sexy with dem’ scissors :3 Her gauntlets made me think of the BRS series. I love gauntlets like those~

  • Tre W

    It’s going to be very interesting if Cavia and Drakengard 3 come literally out of nowhere, and become worthy contenders in the “stylish action” genre. Especially in light of the previous games (which, while fun, were definitely games you’d played more for the insane narrative than anything approaching engaging combat).

    At this point, I’m hoping that the other sisters may be possibly other characters you can unlock to play or what-have-you. Lots of replay value for a great gameplay system is always nice…

  • ShadowDivz

    I wish the models looked more liked the art.
    Whether i get the game or not… im definitely getting the artbook.

    • prometheus126

      Have you ever played any game where the character models actually look like the art?

      • ShadowDivz

        Hyperdimension neptunia. Persona 3 & 4.
        Ar tonelico. Catherine. Blazblue, Atelier series the list goes on…

  • AaqibRawat

    3 Is fine….
    damn 3 is fine

  • SoundMatch

    Now all we need are the chains from the Andromeda cloth and we are good to go.

    Wish Zero could dive kick into my life
