All Articles: Drakengard 3

PS Store Today: Transistor, Wolfenstein: New Order, Drakengard 3, more


This is the week your PlayStation 4 has been waiting for. OK, maybe it’s just the week that my (hypothetical) PlayStation 4 has been waiting for. Either way, there are two very cool PS4 games available for purchase through the PlayStation Store as of today.

Supergiant’s Transistor is a sci-fi action RPG and the followup to their blockbuster breakthrough, Bastion. If you’d rather blast mecha-enhanced Nazis in the face with a bazooka, you may want to check out Wolfenstein: The New Order. The latest entry in the venerable FPS franchise is the debut project from MachineGames. And from the looks of it, they’re going to be around for a long time.

But if you’re a PS3 owner, don’t worry, there’s plenty more for you this week, including your own version of Wolfenstein: The New Order. However, fans of quirky Japanese RPGs will be most satisfied with this week’s PS3 slate as NIS America released Mugen Souls Z, Square Enix released Drakengard 3, and Atlus re-released Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga.

More information about all of these games and more (including a quintet of import PS1 Classics) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

New Releases: Wolfenstein: The New Order, Drakengard 3, Mugen Souls Z, More


In Wolfenstein: The New Order, the Germans managed to win World War II through a combination of mechs and mutants. Now it’s up to William “B.J.” Blazkowicz to turn the tide and make this alternate 1960 a very Nazi-unfriendly place. Wolfenstein: The New Order was developed by MachineGames and will be available for almost every current platform including the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

PS3-owning RPG fans will find a pair of interesting new games on store shelves next week as well. Square Enix will bring Drakengard 3 to Sony’s system while NIS America will release Mugen Souls Z.

Finally, a few re-releases round out next week’s batch of new games. First up, Grasshopper’s Killer Is Dead will make its way to the PC as Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition. Also next week, Nordic Games will re-release a few of the games they picked up from the THQ auction including the Darksiders Collection on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360; the Red Faction Collection for the PS3; and Red Faction Complete for the PC.

A complete list of next week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Drakengard 3 will be released on May 20; Collector’s Edition announced

Drakengard 3, a prequel to Drakengard, is the latest action RPG from Square Enix, who announced the game’s Collector’s Edition earlier today. In Drakengard 3, six sisters have used their powers of music and harmony to bring peace to the world. However, Zero, the oldest sister, and her dragon, Mikhail, try to kill Zero’s younger sisters. Check out the trailer above for some really strange and interesting graphics and character designs.

The Collector’s Edition, which is limited to 5,000 copies, includes a novella, a soundtrack sampler, a poster, and some DLC. Both the standard ($49.99) and Collector’s ($79.99) editions have pre-order bonuses available. If you pre-order the game between now and March 3, you get a Japanese voiceover DLC and unlock two other bonuses (not yet announced). If you pre-order from March 4 to April 8, you get the two unannounced bonuses. If you pre-order between April 9 and launch, you get the last of the unannounced bonuses.

Drakengard 3 will be available on May 20 exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

Square Enix bringing Drakengard 3 to PS3 in 2014

If there’s one thing that the PlayStation 3 has a bevy of, it’s quality role-playing games. And who’s gonna complain about one more, right? Especially if that one more is Drakengard 3, announced today by Square Enix. The title will actually be a prequel, so if you haven’t played the first two games (*slowly raises hand*), you won’t be missing anything.

Drakengard 3 is set to hit North American shores sometime in 2014. While you wait, please enjoy the trailer, which includes some amazing music.
