Square Enix outlines the story:

A prequel to the original Drakengard, Drakengard 3 transports players to a medieval world where six sisters wield special magical abilities as the "Intoners." These sisters have brought peace to the earth with their power to manipulate magic through song. Harmony is disrupted, however, when the eldest sister, Zero, attempts to murder her younger sisters with the help of her dragon companion, Mikhail. As the story progresses, players find themselves in a battle to unravel the mystery of Zero and learn her true intentions.

The action role-playing game (titled Drag-on Dragoon 3 in Japan) will debut in Japan on Thursday, while the North American and United Kingdom branches of Square Enix announced that they will be releasing the game next year for US$49.99.

Japan will have a 10th Anniversary Box which will include the Drag-on Dragoon World Inside production design collection, 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.

Two manga adaptations based on the game are running in Square Enix's Young Gangan and Big Gangan magazines.
