After he left Team Ninja, Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki began work on a third-person shooter titled Devil’s Third. The game is being published by Nintendo and will be released for the Wii U sometime in 2015. Of late, Itagaki has been using his personal Facebook to reach out to fans of the shooter, and recently, he shared a few more tidbits of information with them.
When asked what the title “Devil’s Third” means, Itagaki said it has to do with music. Itagaki could be referring to a “tritone,” a musical interval composed of three whole tunes or six half tones. This is colloquially sometimes referred to as “The Devil’s Interval,” but whether or not this is what he was referring to remains to be seen.
When asked if Devil’s Third will feature both a single and multiplayer campaign, Itagaki’s reply was as follows:
“We made this game for single play (campaign) and online online multiplay gamers. ‘Cuz I know I have to respond to expectations by both gamers. So, in fact, we invested double amount of resources than general development in this industry, to accomplish to develop this game. I can’t show you specific length of single play mode, ‘cuz we’re still tuning this game. But you can estimate the total length of single play mode, by my saying above.”
Itagaki was also asked what framerate and resolution the game will run at, to which he replied that the game’s specs are still being worked out.
