Magic brooms and murderous robot bears: the wackiest games of Tokyo Game Show 2013

Drag-On Dragoon 3 (PS3)

What Is It?

Drag-On Dragoon 3 (PS3)

PS2 gamers may remember the Drag-On Dragoon series; it was first released in English as Drakengard in 2004. The first two games were third-person hack-and-slash fests in the vein of the Dynasty Warriors series, with its hook being that players can ride a dragons either on the ground or in the air.

The upcoming third game stays true to its big-lizard-piloting and beat-em-up roots, but also introduces two female protagonists, Zero and One. Zero has four manservants who protect her and render, er, other services. Oh, and she also has a flower growing out of her right eye, because of course she does. In line with the game's hack-and-slash gameplay, Zero and One can level-up their combat skills once they are completely covered in (other people's) blood on the battlefield.

Chances of seeing it outside Japan?

Very high, given that the first two games made it to the UK before. However, publisher Square Enix hasn't announced an English version yet.
