Game developer Square Enix will release its Drag-on Dragoon 3 (Drakengard 3) fantasy action role-playing game for PlayStation 3 in a deluxe 10th Anniversary Box on October 31 for 19,800 yen (US$202). A standard edition will retail for 7,980 yen (US$82).
The 10th Anniversary Box will include the Drag-on Dragoon World Inside production designs, a chip music CD, the "History Films" bonus video content on Blu-ray, a Drag-on Dragoon Novel Prelude, a postcard book, and a download content code.
The game features two sisters named Zero and One with opposite personalities. The violent, pink-eyed Zero has a prosthetic arm and a flower growing from her right eye. The red-eyed One is intellectual with a strong sense of justice. Both are "Utautai" — "goddesses" who descended upon the war-fraught world, wielding magical powers and manipulating music.
The game is being produced by Takamasa Shiba (Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord). Drag-on Dragoon veteran Tarō Yokō is returning to direct the game and write the scenario. Kimihiko Fujisaka (Drag-on Dragoon, Last Story) is designing the characters and monaca's Keiichi Okabe (Tekken, Katamari Damacy) is composing the music.
