Drakengard 3 Director Hopes to Make Drakengard 4 on PS4, But Lacks the Money

With Drakengard 3 out in Japan for PS3, and coming to the west this year, many are wondering about the future of the beloved JRPG franchise.

A fan named DragonKiddo actually asked director Taro Yoko on Twitter to make Drakengard 4 for PS4, and Yoko-san responded, stating that there's no lack of will to take up that challenge, but the problem is more practical. (Drakengard 3, PS4, Yoko Taro)

Drakengard 3 Pre-Render CG Character(as shown in the image above) in RealTime Gameplay!

Sony have been Generous Lately, Sony translated Drakengard 3 into Chinese. Possibilities for more generosity is there.

Plug in Luminous Engine tech on Drakengard 3, and Boom! Awesome Fire Breathing Dragon Cute Girl Flying Action! Plus it helps Kingdom Hearts 3, FFXV development.

Drakengard 3 could be a Great PS4 seller. Greatness Possibilities!

problem is Drakengard is a niche title and doesn't really sell that much. Also the CGI opening in Drakengard 3 is mostly likely outsourced or made by another team in Squeenix(mostly their usual CGI movie team for FF and KH). But I hope it sells well in Japan and I hope Nier's reception helps it as well in the west.

One: It was one thing for them to port the game to China, its another for the West and US. Which I doubt has been announced.

Two: Like with most HD game engines, I have serious doubts that Luminous will be able to handle flight sim mechanics. Since the PS3 and 360, gaming has been largely about first person perspectives and high quality, up close, textures. I just don't see S/E fronting the money for the needed modifications.

@kowan

Dragenkard 3 is a full mainstream Action-JRPG and sell very much, http://www.4gamer.net/games...

SquareEnix owns Drakengard IP, there won't be any problem if they want to use CGI characters in real-time gameplay.

@Godmars290

There's a full-blown DRAGON in SquareEnix's Agni's Philosophy. A hint for Next-Gen Drakengard?

GameEngines have modular design, with module such "game mechanics" and "visual" since the PS2 era. FFXV for example, many of it's game mechanics is as old as the PS2, with visual updated by plugging in Luminous Engine Visual module on to FFXV game engine.

Plus, Tomb Raider Definitive Edition for PS4 is in the making. What other games that SquareEnix have, that they don't want to sell on PS4? SquareEnix probably already taken Fourth Mortgage on their Office to put Kingdom Hearts HD 1.75, 2.75 & FFX/FFX2 Definitive Edition on PS4. XD

Greatness Incoming!

"There's a full-blown DRAGON in SquareEnix's Agni's Philosophy. A hint for Next-Gen Drakengard?"

How about a carefully crafted CG cutscene using a uber-end PC?

Likewise as much as you may wish to fawn over Drakengard's CG movie, the truth is the actual game looks like a mid to early build of a PS2 title. It doesn't push the PS3 at all. And while not trying to diss it, if overall its team failed to really utilize that hardware, I have serious doubts that they'll do any better on the PS4.

A Drakengard 4 might look good, but its not going to look as good as D3's CG cutscenes. its just not.

I never said about Drakengard 4 RealTime Gameplay looking as good as Drakengard 3 CG cutscenes.

Godmars290 assumption successfully failing his disagreement.

If SquareEnix wants to spend everything they have, work hard, diligence, trying to get Drakengard 4 looking near as good as Drakengard 3 CG cutscenes. I have no objection.

More Greatness for the PS4.

Comment underneath,
"Drakengard 3 Pre-Render CG Character(as shown in the image above) in RealTime Gameplay!"

unlike Godmars290 who doubts human's ability to do better.

It is the ability of human to do Better, creates Greatness!

Drakengard 4 on PS4?

yes make it happen, get dat funding
Inception  +   470d ago
Hopefully, Drakengard 3 sell really good both in japan and the west...even though i doubtfull on the western part. But as a fans of Drakengard, surely i will play my part on buying the english ver day 1.

I'm definitely buying Drakengard 3, it looks awesome, but I never played the series before, anyone know if i need to play the previous titles to understand the story?
HellzAssassin  +   470d ago
Nah, not really. It doesn't look like it has anything to do with the others in the series. Either way, I'd HIGHLY recommend you picking up the original if you're interested in the third. The original is an extremely dark and ****ed up game. Incredible in many aspects, and I'd highly recommend it, as it's one of my favourite games on PS2.
Inception  +   470d ago
You don't need to play the previous Drakengard. Because Drakengard 3 is the prequel for Drakengard 1 & 2.
tulholdren  +   470d ago
English version day 1 so that the PS4 can get a number 4 on it.
