Win A Drakengard 3 Japanese Limited Edition From Square Enix And Siliconera

By Spencer . May 8, 2014 . 3:30pm

Siliconera has a prize we think the readers here will appreciate. Square Enix gave us a Drag-on Dragoon 10th Anniversary Box from Japan to give away to our readers in North America. (Sorry, Europe—shipping this thing across the world would be extremely expensive.)



The Japanese limited edition includes a copy of Drag-on Dragoon 3 (the Japanese version of Drakengard 3), DLC code for Kaine’s costume, the Drakengard World Inside book, a Drakengard Chips Music CD & History Films Blu-ray disc, the Drakengard 3 novellas (in Japanese), copies of voice recording scripts, and a visual book with 32 illustrations from the Drakengard series.


Here’s a look at the World Inside book which also includes Nier since it’s part of the Drakengard universe:



This rare item was only sold through Square Enix e-Store in Japan. How can you win this prize? Send us fan art of Zero, Nier or any character from the Drakengard series to drakengard3contest (at) We’ll pick our five favorite entries and let readers vote on who will take the grand prize home.

  • ShindoW

    Is it limited to just 1 character or can it be a few?

      • TheRealMalek

    • Milewide


  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    i was making quick fan art, until i realized that it’s for NA only…

    btw : kidding, i already made this fan art long ago

    • Cheesy12

      I wonder if this is allowed but I think you should still try! Have someone(a friend if possible) enter in your stead, and then you can pay them the shipping costs to you or something. While shipping is probably expensive, you’d still save money…probs.

  • SirRamonTercero

    Mexico counts as North America right?

  • Oh snap yes. I think I’ll try to enter this

  • Aoshi00

    here’s my feeble attempt.. I know the clothes are totally wrong, and I was never that great at drawing females lol.. would need to study the costumes and armor a lot since Fujisaka’s very detailed on those *.*.. back to watching 47 Ronin :P should’ve drawn a crazed zero cutting down people..

    • Aoshi.,.. I swear you bought the limited edition version

      • Aoshi00

        I did lol..knowing what the us ver is getting now for $70, I would’ve saved the $270…

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      I remembered you saying how you used to draw. That’s pretty nice… guess this contest is an excuse to draw again? :v

      • Zero_Destiny

        Yeah man, I remember some of Aoshi’s older drawings from back in the day with like Goku. Good stuff. ^^

        • MrSirFeatherFang

          He did he told me he liked to draw in the style of Akira Toriyama, but I’ve never seen anything by him until now!

          • Aoshi00

            Yeah got me interested in giving zero a shot lol..I drew for whatever I was watching or reading back then. Toriyama is still my most revered artist, his latest Jaco manga is great. Later I incorporated togashi, Watsuki, and kishimoto s styles kinda ;) of course I love Fujisaka too

  • Yan Zhao

    I’d enter but my artistic talent is 0.

  • FTM

    Very cool. I’m not much of an artist (at all), but I’ll still enter. I remember 1Up did a contest once for Fire Emblem; here’s a look at my awesomely awful entry :P

  • Here’s my rough sketch. Nothing special or definite, but it’s a base.
    One of three possible entries for me. Another is a crazed zero In an action pose or Nier and Yonah together.
    I’ll have to decide which one I’m going to enter

  • Go2hell66

    Cant even draw T_T

  • harmonyworld

    I thought this game was already out~

  • That LE sold for around $200

  • Here’s my drawing for the contest; not to gloat or anything, but I think it’s pretty good stuff:

    • DesmaX

      WHOA MAN
      DO YOU WORK FOR DENGEKI!!!!11????/

      • Anime10121

        Shhh! Quiet Man!

    • UnderNight In-Seth

      Nice picture.
      I love your use of Google Image search, simply astounding.

    • Chris Smith

      needs more bouncing BOOBS

    • Pablo Sanchez


  • brian

    Does it need to be only one character in the picture?

  • I’m a disappointed its only for NA

    this sucks

  • I’m a big fan of Nier, and have been visiting here for a long time, so I will give it a shot!!

  • Ragnab

    I’d be upset the comp is NA only if it weren’t for the fact I am completely lacking in artistic talent.

  • fairysun

    Here’s my entry XD

    • zaidandzhadow

      OMG a grotesquery

  • Kevin Lor

    ohh this is nice

  • SomeLivingMusician

    Shoot! Im no good at drawing .-. Maybe one of these days we could get a contest for us musicians, something like recording your cover of a song from the game being given away or maybe a free copy of project diva f2nd for whoever can get the highest score on one of the harder songs on the original pdf, or something like that :P We still get to see some amazing art at the end of this though so it’s not all bad for us not artists :3

  • Mimi

    Serious question for Siliconera: Would cosplay count as art in this case? I’m genuinely interested and I consider cosplay to be my art.

  • Kiwi

    Does the image have to made for the contest?

  • Crevox

    I don’t draw

    I lose

  • Z3

    “Sorry Europe”

  • Abysswalker90

    What if I don’t live in NA and am willing to pay for shipment, in case I win?

  • Bobby Jennings

    Man. All these contests I can’t enter.
    I can’t draw, lol

  • Mikey Rose

    European gamers missing out on something again. SCEE planned this I bet.

  • Gael Summers

    Quick Question about the rules: Are we limited to drawing just one character or no?

  • Abysswalker90

    Everyone, I have the perfect solution:

    1. All the people from NA who can’t draw will switch places with all the people from around the world who want to participate.

    2. ????

    3. Profit.

  • Derinsleif

    I’m not that great with drawing but tbh I wouldn’t mind shipping out to europe if someone from EU wins. (As long as I can have the visual book anyways ^^” )

  • JustThisOne


    What are the rules around violence or gore? I mean, given some of the things that happen in Drakengard, I’m sure we’ll have some leeway, right? L-Like, it’s fine if I throw in a couple of detached limbs or something, right?

    • That’s what I did.
      It’s been two or so days since I entered my piece so I think it’s fine?

  • I’m actually curious, Spencer what is the approx cost to ship it out to let say the UK?

  • bluegarigari

    guess its time to start drawing again

  • JAR

    Just sent in my entry. Here is a preview. I hope you are all as excited as I am to see the other entries.

  • Unfortunately this is as far as i got. Maybe i should have went with Pencil line art. Well good luck to everyone else and thanks Siliconera for this opportunity.

  • Kiwi

    I sent something else in for this contest, but I did draw this dragon boy Mikhail the other day so I thought I’d share. Good luck to everyone who entered! I hope we get to see all the entries!
