In rather unexpected news, Square Enix has announced that Drakengard 3 is in development for the PS3.  The game is being developed by Deadly Premonition developer Access Games, with some of the creators of the original Drakengard games and Nier on board as well.

Um, should they really be touting the development skills of the guys who made Deadly Premonition? I mean, that game was ambitious, but it was a cult hit in spite of its terrible gameplay, rather than because of it.

Kotaku has this set for a release date of May 20

plus an unusual pre-order promotion:
Quote
Square Enix has set up three tiers of preorders for Drakengard 3. In order to receive the Japanese voice DLC for the game, fans must preorder before March 4. That's the first tier. Those who preorder after March 4 but before April 8 only get tiers two and three — unannounced bonuses — and after April 8 only the third tier. P

plus, they've got a pic of the collector's edition, from SE's site only, limited to 5k copies - $79.99:

Quote
All three tier pre-order incentives mentioned above
The Complete Novella
Official Soundtrack CD Sampler
Prequel Stage DLC – Play as Zero's sister, One, in this additional level
Caim Costume DLC – Protagonist of the original Drakengard (Once equipped, stamina consumption decreases by half when using a skill)
Giant Baby Hat DLC – For your in-game dragon companion

So, any more word about the quality of this? I could use a good new RPG, just not sure how this series usually plays, and the quality of the stories.

A few people on Neogaf have said that the Japanese press found it to be mediocre. The first two games, iirc, we're nothing to rave about, either.

I think they have generally been regarded as a great premise but mediocre execution.  It's Dynasty Warriors with dragons.  What I remember most was the annoying as hell battle music that played in the first stage.  it only had about a half dozen notes and looped in less than 3 seconds.  The grind to improve your weapons was also pretty bad iirc.  These are definitely niche games and I think the sentiment expressed earlier is spot-on.  "how did they manage to sell enough copies to warrant a sequel?"
