Access Games-developed sequel set for December.

Drakengard 3 has been delayed from its initially announced October 31 release date to December 19 in Japan. The reason, according to Square Enix, is to further enhance the game’s quality to meet player expectations.

Thanks, Re: Gigen.

    I know I don’t live in Japan but I’m glad they’re delaying it for said reasons.

    As long as the end result is good, I guess that’s fine

    ’Further enhanced the game’s quality’, i hope it’s about the graphics …. i don’t mind if that’s the reason

      Quality means everything =)

    Maybe it’s just my imagination but I’ve been hearing the word “delayed” quite often lately.

      this is either the 3rd or 4th time a game I’m looking forward to has been delayed recently

    Good, this should give them time to sort out the performance. There were several occasions in the trailer where the frame rate fluctuated, on top of having quite a perceivable amount of screen-tearing. After taking care of the performance issues, implementing MLAA would certainly be very much appreciated.

    Isn’t that always the reason? :P

  • Bob Obb

    I’d be upset but this fall’s Japanese lineup is already so amazing.

  • Zancrow

    Wonder if this one will continue Drakengard’s proud tradition of killing children.
    I doubt it, though, considering Cavia is gone….:(

  • Pyrofrost

    It’s probably due to fall already having such a robust line-up. I dunno, I just hope this leads to a possible localization.
