Drakengard 3 is hacking and slashing its way to North America in 2014, Square Enix has announced. Developed by Deadly Premonition studio Access Games, the action role-playing game is helmed by series producer Takamusa Shiba and features music from Nier composer Keichi Okabe.

Despite being the third entry in the series, Drakengard 3 transpires prior to the events of the original game, which released for PlayStation 2 nearly a decade ago. Square Enix suggests newcomers should feel perfectly comfortable jumping in with the prequel when it arrives exclusively for PlayStation 3 next year.
