Today, Square Enix has announced that Access Game’s latest entry in the Drakengard series that also acts as a prequel to the first game, Drakengard 3, will be localized for Western regions.

They also uploaded an announcement trailer, launched the game’s Western website, and uploaded¬†screenshots on the’s Facebook.¬†The same PV trailer that was revealed at this year’s Tokyo Game Show last month, but with subtitles and the Western release date. Like we said earlier, the developers for this franchise don’t seem to be bothered with showing a bit of spoilers in their trailers for their games. So spoilers abound, watch at your own discretion, you can watch the trailer below. The song in the trailer is called “This Silence Is Mine,” sung by Chihiro Onitsuka for those wondering.

A prequel to the original Drakengard, Drakengard 3 transports players to a medieval world where six sisters wield special magical abilities as the “Intoners.” These sisters have brought peace to the earth with their power to manipulate magic through song. Harmony is disrupted, however, when the eldest sister, Zero, attempts to murder her younger sisters with the help of her dragon companion, Mikhail. As the story progresses, players find themselves in a battle to unravel the mystery of Zero and learn her true intentions.

Drakengard 3 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive title, and will arrive in North America and Europe next year following the Japanese release in December. It will be released in physical form exclusively on their online website and offered digitally on the PlayStation Network for North America, while only being released digitally on PSN for Europe.

    • paulz

      can you conceive the notion that not everyone lives in murica but there are human beings in europe as well and that some people just want to go to the store three blocks away to purchase a game instead or having it shipped and pay with credit card?

      Other Regions gamer can just import from North America, Since PS3 Region Free with Games

      Interestingly enough I’m in the opposite boat – I want more digital versions from Square Enix. I’m not sure I’m picking up the Kingdom Hearts HD Remixes because I want them Digital not Physical. I’ve been holding onto my PS2 just for my KH games and really don’t want to have to keep holding onto a system just to play a set of games. While the PS4 won’t be backwards compatible, it may play PS3 games later via Gaikai (not holding my breath though).

    Now, if they’d just release the Drakengard & Drakengard 2 on the PS Store it would be great.
