Drakengard 3

Square Enix has released the latest batch of screenshots for the latest in the Drakengard series, Drakengard 3. This time, they feature the varied weapons available to the protagonist, Zero. Throughout the game, Zero can wield her default sword, a spear, arm and leg braces, and chakrams.

The last lot of gameplay footage showed her switching weapons and demonstrating more of the capabilities of each of the weapons, as well as the combos you can achieve by switching weapons more often and even on the fly. The old weapon system is returning, with each weapon having their own macabre stories. Each weapon is capable of being strengthened using the materials found for up to four levels; each level means more attack power, more combo opportunities, and more abilities. Like the previous entries in the series, it takes cues from other such beat ’em ups like Dynasty Warriors.

Drakengard 3 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and will be released in Japan on December 19th. A digital Western release will follow at some stage next year, published by Square Enix themselves. Once again, North American fans can pre-order a hard copy from Square Enix’s online store; a physical version has not been confirmed for the PAL region.

    This really needs to be sold in other online stores. Pre-ordering through SE (In other words, through Digital River) makes me very uneasy. Digital River is unprofessional and extremely unreliable.

    I’m hoping to get a physical copy of the game somehow.
