Here’s Drakengard 3’s Leading Lady Dressed As Kaine From Nier

By Spencer . September 16, 2013 . 11:49pm

Drakengard 3 has a crossover with Nier. No, we’re not talking about how the two series connect chronologically either. The Drakengard 10th anniversary box includes the PlayStation 3 game, a bunch of items to celebrate the Drakengard series, and a Kaine costume for Zero.




This limited edition item will only be sold from Square Enix’s online store and it costs 19,800 yen ($200). Drakengard 3 comes out on December 19.

    really looks like it took them 10 seconds to make that costume…

    • brian

      Why does reaction seem negative about this so far?
      It fits, since they’re very similar in design and they probably couldn’t have done much else to add on without making it look overdesigned or out of place.

  • Kazuma Kazzie Kaz Kaz

    Love Nier, but this costume is so shit haha.

    • AnimusVox

      Ahaha yeah… kinda is.

    • Brimfyre

      Yeah people voted for their favorite character and not the best costume. That or it could be the fact you can see part of her nipple in that costume.

  • Ryan Chiu

    Tch. Wanted them to pick Caim…

    • Ouryu

      Caim is the best drakengard character.

  • Mazdian

    Looks kind of “off,” perhaps it’s the hair. Still, it’s sweet that there’s a NIER costume for D3. Maybe they’ll add in more later on, like an Angelus skin for Mikhail!

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      i prefer Jet Fighter skin for Mikhail

  • Tom

    If this game gets a western release date I’d pre-order in an instant! Sometimes I feel I want this game more than Bravely Default or Final Fantasy Type-0.

  • SoundMatch

    I bought the 10th anniversary edition (had to order it through a jap mailing site). Honestly they should make a costume for all the main characters. 1600 is too much (HKD btw).

  • Chiupon

    For anyone saying anything negative about the costume, please look at the source material. Kaine’s outfit is exactly like that. Please remember that art doesn’t always translate well over into 3D modeling — if people are upset, they should’ve just voted for a diff costume. Personally, I think it looks gr8 and it’s gonna look better in actual gameplay instead of a sample pose.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      to be fair, the poll was opened in japanese website and dominated by mostly japanese people (and they like waifu stuff). Not all western people vote for Kaine Costume, i hear in most forum they want Caim mostly because they want to see Caim in HD, and for nostalgia. They vote for other characters, but upset they didn’t win.

      Yes, they look similar, but even many Kaine’s fans think her costume looks horrible.

      • Chiupon

        i’m actually just assuming they’re basing their opinions on Zero’s pose. the outfit textures and composition aren’t bad at all, it’s just that zero’s model is posing REALLY awkwardly.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    “Cavia, you dumbass! Start making sense, you rotten company, or you’re gonna be sorry! Maybe I’ll rip your staff out, one-by-one! Or maybe I’ll absorb you into AQ interactive! How can a company with such a unique,
    strange story get disbanded like a little bi***h?! Huh!? Oh, Squat Enix! I love you, Squat Enix! Come over here and gather Yoko Taro Team, Squat Enix!! Now pull your head out of your goddamn ass and START MAKING DRAKENGARD 3!”

    • Rashid Al Rabah

      *Cliche Slow Clap* Impressive…

    • Tom

      Wow, that was sweet, I could almost hear Laura Bailey.

    • XiaomuArisu

      Best intro ever!

  • Alexander Aubert

    i will say the same thing again…. western release please…..

  • DyLaN

    Looks OK to me :/

  • regreto

    wow lingerie cloth :D

  • Brimfyre

    Does the costume also come with a penis?

    • KuroNathan

      did they ever bring that up in Nier? I keep telling myself I should play it but other stuff gets in the way.

      • awaiken

        Yes as soon you start the second playthrough

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        they only give a hint like “Kaine has strange body, and got abused by other kids when she’s still small” in start of second playthrough

        • Mr_SP

          Plus, if you look very, very closely, especially with her DLC outfit, you can see that Kaine has an unusually pronounced bulge.

  • Jack Frazee

    I am more excited about this game than any other game currently in production, and than I have been with any other game that has released within the last several years.

    I need this freaking game.

  • Zero can dress however she wants. I’d still want her either way =^_^=

  • leingod

    I loved Kaine, even with her… issue of sorts. Nier was a great game in fact – even if it followed Drakengard’s worst ending. It just needed a tad more production values.

    Totally getting this if it’s available in the west.

  • For only $300

  • artemisthemp

    Square Enix where is Western release announcement?

  • Vash bane
