Devil’s Third hasn’t been received well. We aren’t going to link to any critique of the game here, but suffice to say that Google is your friend, and if your Google-fu is in order, you’re going to read some not-so-great things about the game. In light of the reception, the game’s creator, Tomonobu Itagaki, has come out in its defence. Itagaki posted the following message to his Facebook:
[Dear media guys and gamers]
It seems that the world is in disorder…no way. I feel that the informations on Devil’s Third are tangled.
So I decided to tell you guys about the Specifications and recommended playing devices best suited for Devil’s Third, plus useful infomation for you guys.
I felt the time has come for me to talk about.
[About the specifications of Devil’s Third]
Frame rate: 30fps.
*note: I promise you can fully enjoy this MASSIVE shooter with 30 fps.
Split Screen: This game don’t have split screen feature for both offline and online play. ‘Cuz I used all the power of Wii U for single player. That was tough tradeoff for me. Plz understand.
Voice chat: We don’t equip voice chat feature. ‘Cuz we had maxed out its bandwidth to achieve online play by 16 users.
Don’t disappoint, and don’t be negative. I promise the wide/deep/brandnew playability for you guys today [sunglasses emoticon] [Recommended Playing Devices]
Wii U of course [smile emoticon] TV set.
Thanks for your constant support for Devil’s Third.
