The memories begin on March 6 with One and Two.

Drakengard 3

Square Enix has released the first screenshots of its upcoming Drakengard 3 story downloadable content.

The first two add-ons, which let you play as One and Two, respectively, will be released on March 6 for 571 yen each (plus tax). Three will follow on March 13, then Four on March 20, Five on March 27, and Zero on April 3.

Through each add-on, you’ll relive an episode of its Utautai sister’s past. In Zero’s case, you’ll relive her initial encounter with Mikhail the dragon. Memories are told through short stories, and each time you level up, you’ll unlock a new story. You can get the weapons of each Utautai sister through each add-on’s scenario. Many of them become very powerful when leveled up. And just like the weapons in the main game, they each have a Weapon Story.

    Old cartoon style? Funny.

  • DrForbidden

    I honestly believe that these chapters should have been unlockable in the main game, but I guess this is how the industry works now…

    • Budgiecat

      Yep.

      Sucks…

    • Elvick

      Eh, development costs have risen tremendously. While game prices have not to accommodate.

      I think it’s fair when done properly. I think these are done properly.

      $3+ for one costume in some games is nonsense though.

        Tales of series for example.

        • Izzeltrioum

          Nah, Nothing beats FF XIII-2 costumes (God that ME one). Don’t properly know about XIII-3 ones.

          Kind of agree, except that Tales of costumes at least change background bgm; alter ending quotes, or give unique artes (Vesperia PS3; in-game unlockable, though).
          It’s the fanbase’s fault. They continue supporting the idea. I don’t know how Bamco does it but, apparently, works, and it always will. Now SE is following suit. Same goes for Falcom’s Sen no Kiseki.

          But the king of clothing as DLC award would be for Team Fortress 2.

          Gaben: “X game will be ported to PC, supporting achievements, etc…”
          Players: Meh
          Gaben: “X hat with pre-order/purchase”
          Players: TAKE MY ****ING MONEY

          • Budgiecat

            Bamco started it with Idolm@ster

  • Martian Wong

    I really wish I dont have to buy from SE store. Digital river is hideous from what I heard..

  • bloodiOS

    Each sold separately?

    There’s rumors going around that SE is doing the physical copy exclusive thing to keep Drakengard 3 from outselling Lightning Returns.

    • Budgiecat

      lol what that doesn’t even make any sense….but then again it is S-E….

    • Anime10121

      Financially and business wise, that would literally make no sense whatsover, ESPECIALLY given the fact that SE aint really doing as well as some of its competitors in Japan (Bamco for instance)…

      • MogCakes

        Bamco has positioned themselves VERY WELL for the forseeable future.

        • Budgiecat

          Bamco also has Sunrise and their toy lines which they could live off alone dont forget

          SegaSammy has their Pachinko & Pachislot machines and Casinos they could live off alone as well

          SNK Playmore has…..

    • almostautumn

      Well if they really think Drakengard 3 is going to dissuade the ten remaining tasteless morons who think the FF13 trilogy is worthwhile, then I guess they’re making the right call if less money = stronger business.

      • Anime10121

        The insult was completely and utterly unnecessary. I happen to like both XIII-2 and LR, and would rather not be called a moron just because of differing OPINIONS on a game :/

        And I can assure you, there are far more than 10 of us …

    Can’t wait to play as Two

    • AnimusVox

      I’m kinda looking forward to playing as Three personally, what with the scissors and stuff.

        Yah , hopefully we can use her swords

  • Pyrofrost

    It would be awesome if a voucher for these packs was one of the top tier CE pre-order rewards :3

    I think if people demonstrate more support for their games and IF she had many sales on their games, today she would a lot of different games like in the past generation.
