Drakengard domain name secured by Square Enix

Tuesday, 1st October 2013 01:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Now why would Square Enix US be buying up “DrakengardGame.com” just as Drakengard 3 approaches release in Japan, I wonder?

According to this WhoIs record, Square Enix’s US arm picked up the domain name on September 27.

Square Enix did publish the first two Drakengard games in the west – with some content cut – as well as related title Nier. The publisher is quite fond of the series, bringing the old Cavia team back together for the third entry after the studio was disbanded.

Drakengard 3, or Drag-on Dragoon 3, is due on PlayStation 3 in Japan in December.

Thanks, Superannuation.

    The logical explanation is that they’re considering bringing it stateside.

    But I think it’s more likely to be a precautionary measure. These days, people buy domain names solely so they can sit on the domain names and wait for companies that want them to make a good enough monetary offer.

    Finally *some* news about a possible localization.

    @2 Why on earth would someone squat on an domain for an obscure series like Drakangard? Go away!

    @4: Because people like money. And it’s hardly “obscure.” If you want obscure, try Ephemeral Fantasia, Quantum Theory, or Galerians. And even those may be a stretch to call obscure. People actually know what Drakengard is, especially when considering that people know a new game is on the way.
