The Drakengard series is awesome. Cant wait to see more from this game
Andreas-Sword  +   990d ago
yes, the Drakengard games are very nice.
I love the Dynasty Warriors series, and I love also the Drakengard series.

Looks like they are maintaining the Japanese essence of the game and not westernizing it. I am glad that they decided that way. I am tired of all the westernization and the insecurity of Japanese developers. I really have craved good Japanese games this gen which are not ashamed of their Japanese heritage and do not pretend to be western.

Best news of the year. Easily one of my favourite series, up there with Wild Arms.

is this a PS3 exclusive?

Where is a new take on the old Panzer Dragoon Saga?!?!? of the best dragon riding/dragon combat jrpgs ever made. Hell, I even loved 1st two Saturn "On-Rails" games too....and even Orta on the xbox.....Saga needs a redo...either a HD remake or a new sequal all together or a HD Collection of all the original games.

This is Sega you know...
No Shenmue, no Panzer Dragoon but hey... We get Sega Bass Fishing, Space Channel 5, Super Hang On and Sonic the Fighters on PSN / XBLA which... Nobody asked for.
Thanks Sega!

Man, I know! They did really good releasing HD Jet Set Radio and even Nights, but I would have liked to see all the Panzer Dragoons, Shenmue, Skies of Arcadia, The "Real" Sega Rally, Daytona CCE, Burning Rangers,Virtua ON, and the Virtua Cop Series all in HD. Oh, and a Virtua Fighter like the PS2 version that included the Original Game, but in HD.. Throw in Fighting Vipers 2 in HD too. Come on SEGA!

They managed to get Yoko Taro on board!? Take all of my hype!
Qrphe  +   990d ago
Exactly, they got enough people to make this game genuine.

SQUEE whered this come from i was just thinking of drakengard
Dagobert  +   990d ago
Oh shit, Square Enix is doing something right this time? I'm surprised. I just hope it gets released here because it's about time they made a 3rd Drakengard game.
TheRichterBelmont  +   990d ago
Great to hear. Maybe this opens things up for a NieR sequel of sorts?
FantasyStar  +   989d ago
What's more to do? We all know what happens. A spiritual successor but IMO what makes NIER powerful is the fact there was a story and it concluded itself very well. (granted, there's a gap in worldly lore outside of Shades and towns).

From what I remembered from my fuzzy memory of playing Drakengard, its basically Dynasty Warriors but with epic dragons. This is gonna be great :D
NiteX  +   990d ago
If it's like the previous games, dragon combat and dynasty warriors combat I'm all in. I just hope it doesn't release only in Japan.
araman  +   990d ago
Am I the only one who really hated the first Drakengard and couldn't bring myself to even try the 2nd?
Hicken  +   990d ago
-Gespenst-  +   989d ago
Well I know it's not held that highly in critical regard, but I'd still like to try it having not played it myself...
WeAreLegion  +   990d ago
That's...weird. I can't wait to play it.
TheObserver  +   990d ago
Drakengard series has a tragic story. I love it. Also, a lot of mind f$^*.

ISNeko  +   990d ago
RIP Cavia :(
j-blaze  +   989d ago
the director of Drakengard and Neir is directing the game, so don't worry :)
i hope Nier music composer Keiichi Okabe is working on this game too!
Edit: several original developers working on Drakengard 3 after all and Keiichi Okabe will be doing the music

@ knifefight

agreed :)

Same! Keiichi Okabe is the man. NeiR's soundtrack is one of the best in gaming.
MegaLagann  +   990d ago
Holy sh*t. I thought the series was done for good after Nier flopped. But not only are they bringing Drakengard back, the entire dev team is reuniting and the same composer. Hype level maximum. I also hope they bring Emi Evans back for the vocals. Oh, and Square for the love of god do one thing right and bring this over to the West.
theEx1Le  +   990d ago
Oh SquareEnix, you make me hate you then do something like this... Here take my hype along with a little of the faith you have just restored.
UnitSmiley  +   990d ago
Hope this doesn't sound too sexist lol. But is anyone else disappointed that the two main characters are both female? I have such a hard time getting into Rpg's with female main characters. Any other genre it's fine but I just can't with rpgs.

Caim was freaking awesome too, this will be weird..
dafegamer  +   989d ago
sorry but that sounds pretty sexist dude
Baka-akaB  +   989d ago
Quite honestly i'm a bit dissapointed that there isnt a third male protagonist to play . But that's the kind of things you get over quickly
-Gespenst-  +   989d ago
Yeah that's sexist... You're obviously not used to or comfortable with empowered women. Which is eeehhh, not really a good thing to be. You should probably play it anyway. You might find you really enjoy it- enjoy the characters.

Although I will say, that picture- seems like another hypersexualized female videogame character to me...
UnitSmiley  +   989d ago
I just mean that I prefer to play as male characters, as I am a guy. Not that I think anything is wrong with female main characters lol. I'm still excited by it, and i'll have to wait and see.

Though Gespenst you are right, it does look like that.
Simon_Brezhnev  +   990d ago
I can barely remember Drakengard. I know i stopped playing when them giant babies kept giving me a hard time. I dont know if thats part 1 or 2.
Z501  +   989d ago
w00t w00t! So happy. Caim > Nier > Nowe
e-p-ayeaH  +   989d ago
cool i remember playing the demos they were pretty cool games but there were so many good games coming out at the time (like REsi4 for example) i almost completely forgot about these games.

Square could at least bring the 2 games on the store alongside with Dragon Quest VIII :)

never played one of these games before.. Looks cool tho.. How is it? what do u do?
jc48573  +   989d ago
So they have access games doing the grunt work, the same people behind deadly premonition
topgun33  +   989d ago
Is this coming stateside?
jc48573  +   989d ago
It depends, but Japanese companies have been very hesitant to release their games. He second game was actually co published with ubisoft mainly bc the first didn't sell so well. The taste of consumers in the states has really changed overtime, while Japanese games have been widely ignored. If it isn't something they even heard of, they will most likely miss it. One thing may possibly happen is that developers are doing this on purpose so that western developers hop on to the next gen as soon as possible so that Japanese developers use the last remaining years to steal the spotlight. They don't have to compete with western games and use the opportunity to reconnect with the gamers.

The first one was good except for its crappy camera.
The 2nd one had better controls but the story and characters were more bland.
And please add checkpoints to DG3!
ShaunCameron  +   988d ago
It looks like it's gonna be a PS3 exclusive since no other platforms were mentioned. I might give it a chance if it gets a worldwide release date.
