Drakengard 3 (originally released in Japan as Drag-On Dragoon 3) is the third game in the Drakengard series and a prequel to the original game. The game, like the rest of the series, features a mixture of ground-based hack-and-slash combat and aerial battles. The story focuses on Zero, a woman who can manipulate magic through song. Partnering with a dragon named Mikhail, Zero set out to kill her five sisters, who rule the world's regions. As she travels, the player discovers the true reason behind Zero's rampage.

The game, created to cater for hardcore role-playing game audiences, was developed by the same team who created the original Drakengard and series spin-off Nier, including producer Takamasa Shiba, director Yoko Taro and writer Sawako Natori. The music was composed by Keiichi Okabe, who also scored Nier. Unlike previous titles in the series, the team developed the game at Access Games, due to the company's experience at developing action titles and the team's wish to address criticisms laid at the gameplay of previous Drakengard games. Drakengard 3 received mixed to positive reviews and sales in Japan and mixed reviews in the west. The ground-based gameplay and story were generally praised, while common criticisms included the dragon gameplay, graphics and multiple technical issues.

Original EU PSN verison DLC bug

The original release (v1.00) of NPEB01407 had a bug where DLCs were not recognised correctly. Instead of pushing an update to fix this issue, Square Enix pulled the entire game from the store and replaced it with the fixed version (v1.01). Users who had downloaded the original version were required to completely uninstall the game and re-download the fixed version. Fortunately, if a user tried to download the game today, only the fixed version will be downloaded. It is therefore important for owners of NPEB01407 to download the newer version of the game using the instructions mentioned in out game dumping guide. License file is unchanged between the two versions.
