New Drakengard 3 TV CM in both Normal and Hard flavors


This looks like a Drakengard game

The first two Drakengard games are not very good. In fact it's no stretch to say that they're fairly bad. That being said, both Drakengard and Drakengard 2 (especially the former) are incredibly strange gaming experiences with dark twisted narratives that go unrivaled in many ways. The soundtracks are odd and experimental, and the whole thing makes you wonder how they even got made in the first place.

Nier, made by the same folks that made the Drakengard games, is an extraordinary game that is far more than the sum of its parts. In a recent interview with director Yoko Taro, he explained that the team had tried to get Drakengard 3 off the ground but could never get the ok. As a reaction to that, they went on to make Nier, a game that he and his team considered to be Drakengard 3 up until recently.

It still blows my mind that the Square Enix of today is publishing a third Drakengard game, but here we are on the cusp of its release.

SE has released a pair of new TV commercials for the game in both normal and hard flavors. They're not super different, though the hard version is a bit more graphic and sets a slightly darker tone. Check out the hard one above, and the normal below, and let us know what you think in the comments.

I'll probably be writing a thing or two about Drakengard 3 over the holidays, so keep your eyes and ears peeled to Japanator.

Drakengard 3 hits Japan on December 20, with a NA and EU release coming sometime next year.
