All Of The Dragon Riding You Need Is In Drakengard 3

By Spencer . December 18, 2013 . 11:32pm

Here’s a long look at Drakengard 3 which just came out in Japan. Since Cavia was merged into Marvelous AQL’s internal development team, Access Games took over development. Drakengard 3 has dragon riding and you can fight ground enemies by swooping in or swiping Mikhail’s tail. Zero also has the ability to quickly switch weapons and go from sword to chakram.


Square Enix will release Drakengard 3 in the West, but we have to wait until next year to get the PlayStation 3 game.

    I still think the first 2 need to be on PSN

  • Ugh, last minute. Zero seems to have her period…

      • Now that I think about it, how come whenever there’s an upskirt anything in anime, they never bump into catching a pad or tampon? Everything is always so perfect sexy and/or cutely embarassing (ie humiliating).

        There should be more subversions of that! (And certainly more aversions.)
        It’d be a lot funnier, certainly.

        • Arcana Wiz

          it would even more funny than the usual upskirt scene if they did this 10/10

  • Servant BerserCAR

    The trailer song, man, is so epic! I never heard a song so emo yet also so epic like that. Freaking amazing!

  • Scipio

    I’ve been playing it to the best of my ability (can’t read Japanese), so far, I’ve gotten past the first ending. Needless to say, it ain’t pretty.

    Surprisingly, there’s a lot of comedy, even for me who can’t understand most of what they say. I laughed more than a couple of times before everything became dark again. Drakengard 3 does not disappoint if you know what you are getting into, hell, the combat is a MAJOR improvement from the other two. I’ll definitely get it when it comes to the US, it’s really great.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      i can’t tell if i need to laugh or cry or afraid on the scene before Dito joins the party

      • Arcana Wiz

        i would be more scared from when is Octa joining….

      • Scipio

        Yeah that took me by surprise. At least they found a funny way to censor it. Hopefully they keep it for the US release.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    all you need is love…….. That Crushes Like A Mace

  • I can already tell this is going to be one of the best games ever =^_^=

  • MaximDualBlade

    That was amazing… I had already a list for games to play this summer: Ni no kuni, Tales of Xillia and maybe Xillia 2, depending on when it’s localized, but after watching this trailer this game has become a must buy.
    Nier is for me, the most underrated game on ps3 and probably my favorite game on ps3 next to Dark Souls.

    Drakengard 3 seems to have better combat than Nier, the music seems on par(at least the trailer one is more than A-OK), the story seems something on the level of Cavia(I know they don’t exist as such anymore, but you get me) with Yoko Taro personally torturing me. Did I mention the music? If al the OST is on par with the Nier one, it’s more than enough, I want something similar but different and as good as Grandma,Song of the Ancients(all versions), Ashes of Dreams(all versions), City of Commerce, all the OST.

    I’m sorry for my passion but I’m really happy that this is getting localized and that lots of the original Cavia is doing it and I’m just happy. Take care everyone

  • Arcana Wiz

    I. NEED. THIS.

    Can’t wait for this, the 2nd music that starts at 1:30 is sooo epic, srsly, guys any idea about the name and the artist?
    Edit: found it, it’s called “This Silence Is Mine”, too much epicness…

  • Next year isn’t too far anymore! SO many games I want to create a pool of all the games and swim in them ( O_ O)

  • Thrasher429

    Amazing trailer and that whispered silence is mine at the end gave major goosebumps.

  • mojack411

    God, every story driven trailer that is released for this game gets me so pumped up every single time. This one is no exception. I hope the US version comes out before summer.
