Drakengard 3 is an action RPG developed by Access Games and published by Square Enix. It is a prequel to the first game and has the player assume the role of Zero, the eldest of the five Intoner sisters who control powerful magic through songs. Zero’s goal is to kill her sisters with the help of her dragon mount, Mikhail.
The game features fast-paced ground and aerial combat with combos, special modes, and on-the-fly weapon switching. The Japanese release was rather well-received by the reviewers.
The pre-order bonuses for Drakengard 3 are separated into 3 tiers, and the earlier you reserve your copy, the more of them you will get:
- Wave one: pre-order before March 4th to get all three bonuses (Japanese voice-over DLC as well as the second and third bonus).
- Wave two: pre-order after March 4th but before April 9th and you will be eligible for the second and third bonus.
- Wave three: pre-order after April 9th and you’ll only get the third bonus.
Available for preorder exclusively at Square Enix Online Store, the $79.99 Collector’s Edition of Drakengard 3 includes the following goodies:
