Collect items from chests or snatch them from enemies.

In Drakengard 3, side-quests are unlocked as you progress through the game. If your results are satisfactory, you can earn rewards upon clearing them.

Quests include taking away items from enemies within a given time limit, gathering items from treasure quests, and other activities.

Each quest has restrictions, like limiting players to the sword or disabling items.

There are also things similar to bonus stages. As you defeat enemies, the amount of rewards you earn will increase.

View screenshots of the game’s side-quests at the gallery. The game is due out in Japan on December 19 in Japan, and 2014 in North America and Europe.

    As much as I don’t like ScrewEnix “sell your soul to the devil past with M$” but I am stoked for this game. and KH 2.5 from the old Squaresoft.

    I wonder if the limits will be handled by the game, or if you the gamer have to cautiously not do something, and if you mess up, you gotta start over?

    Will there be smth like “sidequest is for moron” this time as well?

    Joke aside, I’m really hyped for this.

  • LunarHaven

    I can see the similarities with Nier, especially the weapon design and graphic style etc. and with the same composer as well, I have no doubt this will be a winner!

  • Pyrofrost

    I am pretty hyped for this.
    So much so, that it will likely pull me off of FFXIV for a short while. :p

    I’m looking forward this but man Here’s hoping that the frame rate at least sticks to 30fps because releasing a screenshot with obvious screen-tearing like this is not a good sight for the performance of the game…

  • bldudas

    I’m interested in this game, and these side quests seem interesting as well.

  • Budgiecat

    Interesting that they’ll localize this but not Dragon Quest or FF Type Zero

    • LunarHaven

      Yeah, I support these developers a LOT, but not localizing a huge scale FF game but this, seems completely mental haha..

      • Budgiecat

        No problems with the developer S-E is using; it’s S-E themselves. Too inconsistent and braindead this gen in terms of publishing decisions and lack thereof at times.

    Most anticipated game of 2014 by far. I’d take this over a Kingdom Hearts or a Final Fantasy any day.

    Rewards for sidequests, you say? Why has no one thought of this before!?
