Unfamiliar with Drakengard, or a newcomer to the series? Drakengard 3 is a great way to jump in by playing the prequel to the original Drakengard. Drakengard 3’s setting takes place in a medieval world in which the “Intoners”, six goddess-like sisters, have brought peace to the earth with their power to use magic through harmony. Zero, the eldest sister, attempts to murder her younger siblings with the help of her dragon companion, Mikhail. The “Intoners” true intentions are revealed and the mystery of Zero is unraveled as player’s battle to learn the truth.
