Devil’s Third is still on track for 2015

2 min read


I’ve got a soft spot for Japanese-developed games, despite the fact that many of them refuse to keep up with the times. It’s the sheer lunacy of those games that I find attractive,a descent into digital madness that has me convinced that my box of Tic Tacs may have instead been some crazy pills that I just swallowed. Cult favourite developer Tomonobu Itagaki has a new game on the way which ties into opening line, by the name of Devil’s Third. And it still sounds like a 2015 madcap ride.

Itagaki took to FaceBook to update on the status of his game, with Gematsu translating. According to Itagaki’s hype, the Wii U exclusive is going to demolish his previous efforts:

I recently received lots of questions about Devil’s Third from my fans.

I’d like to speak about development status of Devil’s Third in my own words, to the extent that I am allowed.

  1. Devil’s Third is a strong fusion between action games and shooters.
  2. Devil’s Third development is going smoothly. In other words, we finished editing the closing movie the other day.
  3. Devil’s Third will be released next year. Nintendo has already announced this in their press release.
  4. The scale of Devil’s Third‘s story mode is greater than that of Ninja Gaiden.
  5. Devil’s Third demolishes the standard of past console games in online multiplayer.
  6. Almost all specifications I wanted to do were implemented. I got an up-close look at the great forerunners Call of Duty, Battlefield, Gears of War, and my beloved Halo. On that basis, we added completely new level of playability that only we can create.
  7. Anyone can enjoy this game; from casual gamers to hard-core gamers. Let me put it this way. You guys can throw a fun party, or can kill each other in realistic war. You can play your heart out.
  8. This is all I can disclose to you today. I can’t tell you when the war will begin. It’s the way the world goes. I really want to tell you more, my fans waiting with crushing frustration.

It’s rough on a man!

Well, be patient just a little longer. Don’t miss it!

I’m legitimately surprised that there’s a Japanese person who adores Halo, let alone refers to it as “my beloved”. As usual, my Wii U is going to start gathering some dust after the December break. But I’ll be damn happy to have it for this upcoming mix-tape of gameplay styles.

    Start gathering dust, huh? Sounds like we have a casual gamer on our hands (or you are intentionally misinformed.)

    I have plenty to play (not including over 30 downloaded indies and another 15 virtual console,) and so do other real Nintendo gamers: http://oi62.tinypic.com/2v34iua.jpg

      mike patton? Just started getting back into him 🙂 Legendary artist. Wii U owner too – me. I’m watching Devil’s Third closely, maybe we could get a Patton clan going online in Devil’s Third.

        Dude, I am writing a book RIGHT NOW called the Gospels of Mike Patton. I would love for you to add me on NNID.

        My NNID is: PattonFiend

        As you can see, I am down to play just about anything. I have 40 disc games, 30 indies and another 15 virtual console games so far since December 2012.

        Hit me up, man.

          I will. I’m the same way, I haven’t counted, but I’m damn near close to 40 with discs, lots of indies, a few virtual consoles. I had skipped two generations of gaming, and got my Wii U about two months after you. Good luck on your book. I own a few isbn #’s in case your interested in a simple d.i.y. publishing option. I’ll have to wait till the Wii U is free to add you though. That’s usually never in our house.
