Drakengard 3 website opened, debut screenshots

See Zero splashed with blood in almost every screenshot.

Square Enix has opened the official website and shared the first screenshots of Drakengard 3, or Drag-On Dragoon 3 as it’s called in Japan, its newly announced PlayStation 3 sequel in development at Access Games.

The site currently has pages detailing the story, characters, system, and specifications. Find the story summary below.

In the distant past, the dark ages swept the world with wars and tyranny, and the Utautai goddesses appeared before its suffering men. With the ability to manipulate magic through song, the goddesses subdued the world’s feudal lords and peace was brought to a rough earth. The goddesses were revered as Utahime (songstress), and were entrusted to govern the world.

The Utautai known as One has a strong will to bring peace and stability to the world. She is the person who will unite the goddesses and stand on top of the world. But one day, her older sister Zero appears before her with a dragon. Zero, too, is an Utautai, and the strongest of their kind. Why did Zero appear before One? Why does she fight alongside a dragon? What exactly are the Utautai? Dark clouds hang over the world once more.

Drakengard 3 is due out for PlayStation 3 this year in Japan.
