Drakengard 3 Director Yoko Taro Is Currently Unemployed After Finishing His Latest Project

Drakengard 3 was just released in Japan and it was directed by Yoko Taro, the director of the original Drakengard and Nier. It seems like Yoko Taro is unemployed again after finishing his latest project at Square Enix.

This news came from a Japanese blog in which Yoko Taro posted about his New Year Resolution.

My New Year Resolution for 2014.

I know you have to work hard this year. Going life is crazy difficult.
Now, Drag-on Dragoon 3 is released in Japan. I have no plan for next
year because I will be no-job person. But I hope you will be happy in
the next year. bye.

Drakengard 3 was a project initially started by Square Enix’s previous CEO Yoichi Wada. It sold a decent amount of copies during its opening week in Japan but came short of matching the opening week of original Drakengard series on PlayStation 2.

Drakengard 3 is also slated for a release in the West this year. It is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and a sequel to Drakengard 2 on PlayStation 2.

Hopefully Yoko Taro can find work soon or return to direct his cult favorite Drakengard series in the future.

    the game looks absolutely mediocre though. I don’t think he’ll find a job any time soon. ;(

      You are moron of epic proportions . Games are no judged only on graphics alone .also art style , music and ambiance in DoD 3 is simply breathtaking … Game itself is stunning and one ofthe best games I ever played …because of single cell orgnisms like you we have less and less diffeeremt daring games and more generic crap. Putting game on 1080 p or 2560 x 1440 in 60 Hz doesmt automatically make it sublime .in fact more often than not makes it shit for everyone which means generic ….
      People like you make me sick .
      I m halfway through DoD ,3 and game is 10 out of 10 fro me …

      Already played it and still trying to finish the D branch boss, I love the game and the story behind the characters but the game IS mediocre, I’m sorry but that’s the truth, there are waaaay better hack and slash games in the market than this one and even if I love this game so much I can acknowledge that this game is mediocre at best, I’m not surprised that Yoko Taro lost his job, but I sure hope he finds another one soon, just wish he stays out of the game industry though.
