The third part in the PS2 debuting Drakengard series, titled Drakengard 3, has been confirmed for an October 31st release in Japan exclusively for the PS3. Unfortunately publishers Square Enix didn’t announce any plans for a western release but previous releases in the Drakengard series have arrived westward so there’s still a very good change for Drakengard 3’s localization.
Along with the normal edition Drakengard 3 will also be getting a 10th anniversary box set available from Square Enix’s E-Store, the normal edition will be available for 7,980 yen ($82) while the Drakengard 10th Anniversary box set will retail for 19,800 yen ($202).
The 10th anniversary Drakengard 3 box set will include:
- Drakengard World Inside book with a poster from series artist Kimihiko Fujisaka, commentary from Yoko Taro and a story written by Sawako Natori that connects all of the games (Drakengard, Drakengard 2, Nier, and Drakengard 3) together.
- Drakengard Chips Music has 24 tracks remixed from Drakengard, Drakengard 2, Nier Gestalt, and Nier Replicant with an 8-bit feel.
- Drakengard History Films is a Blu-ray disc with movies from earlier games in the series, trailers, and commercials.
- Drakengard Novel Prelude (details will be announced later)
- Drakengard Visual Book (details will be announced later)
- Drakengard 3 DLC code (details will be announced later)
- Drakengard 3 for PlayStation 3 with an illustration drawn by Kimihiko Fujisaka with characters from all of the Drakengard games together.
Now that’s a ton of stuff!
