    I greatly anticipate the release of this software.

      In other words, “WANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”.

    I never played any of them. Although number 3 looks pretty good. Should I buy the 3rd game?? Or just start with 1 and 2?

    • $83030187

      Drakengard 3 is a prequel, so you’ll be fine.

      I’d recommend a Let’s Play of the original Drakengard if you are interested in it, because while the story is fantastic, the gameplay is much less so.

    • DarthBrian

      3 is a prequel so you can start with this one if you’d like.

  • Alex TSi

    That trailer just gorgeous !!!
    In a long time, i don’t have so many emotions, only just from trailer!

  • Alkhan

    I’m still surprised that SE is localizing this for the west.

  • Pyrofrost

    Now if we can just get a western date, and an answer on whether or not the game is going to be completely a SE store exclusive.

    • surakian

      And if we’re getting the Caim or Kaine DLC from buying it from their stone. I don’t want to order it and get nothing from my Digital River troubles.

      • Pyrofrost

        Yeah, If it’s SE store exclusive, I will just wait on an Amazon or ebay seller. Since it’s not limited (though it may be low volume production), value should shoot up for a little while.

    • DarthBrian

      I believe the physical version is SE store exclusive but there will be a digital version available on PSN as well. That’s the latest I heard anyway. *shrug*

      • Pyrofrost

        I would prefer getting a physical, but if the sellers decide to price gouge them, I have no problem getting digital. Thanks for the info.

      • Jay

        I hope you’re wrong… This deserves to be part of my physical collection.

    • $83030187

      As much as I despise Digital River, I think I might have to give in for this one.

      This newest trailer has only weakened my resolve, and once the OST hits, what’s left of it will surely crumble.

      • DarthBrian

        I already did pre-order it because I am weak. T_T

  • Raiyu

    All that blood at 3:03….

    For those who don’t know, that childlike voice is the dragon.

  • Elvick

    Get hype.

  • epy

    Aw man… not story DLC…

  • bloodiOS

    Heh, looking at that Furiae costume reminds me of Caim’s moment of constipation. Looking forward to hear more from Angelus.

  • Anime10121

    Hot damn that trailer was sexy as hell! And the character models keep getting more and more polished! I’m LOVING IT! I just hope Digital River does my order right… I had to call them today to let them know I moved. Hopefully there wont be any issues…

    • Budgiecat

      Yeah well too bad we cant control the assist characters like we can in Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll and the Dragon Age games

      • Anime10121

        It would be quite nice to control the apostles (or even the sisters themselves) :)

  • Jay

    Just give me english subs, I don’t wanna wait til next year :,(

    I found a translaton for the trailer. Warning: Spoilers

    >Mikhail: Zerooo! >Zero: What?
    >Mikhail: I need to go take a pee-pee…

    >Her flower… a song from the land of the dead.
    >Her sword… a dragon from the land of the living.
    >The countless endings make not a beginning.

    >??: I imagine you’ll feel quite secure with a dragon protecting you. Be grateful!
    >Zero: I’m not sure how secure I’ll feel with one like you, Mikhail.

    >One: Though we came into this world in the same way, and both know the danger it is in… still, have we no choice but to kill each other…?

    >Zero: You’ve grown strong, Mikhail…
    >Mikhail: Zero… you dummy…!

    >???: This is the story of six sisters who protected the world with the power of their songs.
    >But one amongst them wished for destruction… the traitor Intoner, Zero.

    >One: This… is what birthed the Intoners!
    >Mikhail: Zero, get on me! We’ll fight together!
    >Zero: I… I!
    >Dito: This is the world of chaos I’ve always wished for!
    >Octa: I wished to bed you one more time, Lady Zero!
    >Decad: This is the greatest of rewards…
    >Cent: I’m just a fool, after all.
    >Two: Cent…! CENT…!
    >Three: Hee hee… not bad.
    >Four: The world is singing for me… and for you, my sister…
    >Five: I want to twine together with you so tightly it drives us both mad, Zero!

    • bloodiOS

      Hmm… here’s hoping that the localized version of the game would have a different translation for Utahime, rather than lumping both Utahime and Utautai together as Intoner…

  • new_tradition

    This game is definitely one of my anticipated titles for 2014 ^^

    I think I’ll probably even buy a few of the costumes if the ones I want make it over to our PSN store.

    Story DLC will be a definite buy. An annoyance, but since the game is cheaper than standard MSRP, I’ll hope it balances out…

    “DLC Schedule”


    • bloodiOS

      I would support it with all my might if it means keeping this series alive.

      • MrRobbyM

        Yeah, no problem, especially if you love the series.

        I just get the shivers when I hear “DLC Schedule”.

        • bloodiOS

          To be honest, it irks me too… but not too much.

    • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

      I need the dlc

  • fallen

    God… that music… It’s got that Nier feeling again. So yes. Very want.

  • Budgiecat

    240p? Why is the stream quality of these always so bad?

    • bloodiOS

      Not that it’s any better but the resolution of the downloaded video (both the mp4 and webm version) is 520×288. Not sure why it’s only 426×240 when watching on YouTube…

  • ddsfan2

    Looks like game of the generation to me…
