Square Enix, publisher of Drakengard 3, has announced an official release date for the action-RPG title in European and other PAL countries. As for North America… well, the rest of us will just have to wait.
Drakengard 3 will be digitally released in Europe on May 21st, 2014. This will be the only format available in those countries; North America, conversely, will see a retail release.
Though it is the third game in the franchise so far (which included Nier as a spinoff title), Drakengard 3 will be a prequel to the original game. Set in a time of total war with an apparent connection to Nier, players will control Zero who is on a mission to murder her five sisters.
Gameplay continues the action tradition of the series, featuring battles controlling Zero herself and as she fights astride her dragon in aerial combat.
In addition to the release date, Square Enix also posted an English release trailer:
