    does drakengard 3 have dual audio?

  2. Power Jusho

    Needs more 2.5 and KH 3 release dates

  3. Jolyne Kujo is allergic to fajitas

    Got my Collector's Edition coming in.  I am ready!

  4. Dark Angel Rafael

    The English voices actually don't sound as awful as I thought. I might actually play through it on the English dub. Maybe not. Either way my Drakengard 3 Collector's Edition can't come soon enough! ??

  5. ASMR Life

    He is amazing… thank you Keiichi Okabe 🙂

  6. Exebiel

    He made Ace Combat's OST series and Nier, Nier for me is an absolute soundtrack  masterpiece I've ever heard 100/100. I know his works on Drakengard 3 won't dissapoint 🙂

  7. Muggshotter

    Oh yes, the way the vocals sound in the various fights (Disc 2 on OST even moreso) is really fitting in my opinion and the intense trance-rock (or heavy?) is very much headbang material for me, so damn good. That said, knowing the soundtrack has convinced me in it's all goodness I am anticipating this game with great interest. May 20th cannot come soon enough!

    Love the music Okabe san has done for Nier, can't wait to hear more from Drakengard 3!

  9. Wazi the pa

    Holy crap….. the voice acting is appauling…… they sound so stale….. no emotion given out from them….. I hope they include Japanese voice acting because I've heard better in Ni No Kuni

  10. Dale North

    Oustanding music! I can't wait to hear it alongside gameplay. Thanks for this video!

  11. JiPoshy

    Is it just us or is the English voice acting really off? Hopefully these clips aren't the finalized NA version. :/

  12. Dulldozer Cannon

    NieR GOD TIER Soundtrack.

    I don't care what anyone says otherwise. Will buy this game and the ost cd day one. 

  13. Adam Sherman

    Lip-synching seems off occasionally, but the voice acting doesn't sound half bad.

  14. The Milhouse Experience

    Only 12 days left.
