A prequel to the original 2004 installment, Drakengard 3 transports players to a medieval world where six goddess-like sisters, known as “Intoners,” have brought peace to the earth using the power of magic manipulation through song. However, harmony is disrupted when eldest sister Zero attempts to murder her younger sisters with the help of her dragon companion, Mikhail. With the story progressing through many twists and turns, players will find themselves unraveling the mystery of Zero and her true intentions. Drakengard 3 comes filled with high-octane hack-and-slash ground combat, as well as aerial battle stages alongside Mikhail, as players take on hordes of enemies and monsters alike.
Drakengard 3 Standard Edition for the PlayStation®3 system is available for $49.99, as well as a digital download on the PlayStation®Network and Square Enix® Online Store. Drakengard 3 Digital Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation®3 system is available exclusively on the PlayStation® Network for $64.99.
