Former Tecmo developer Tomonobu Itagaki has been working on Devil’s Third for quite a while since starting Valhalla Game Studios, and the game is planned for release in 2015. Itagaki recently shared his excitement in an end-of-year feature with 4Gamer.
“It looks like Devil’s Third for Wii U is just about done. It’s been two years spent on designs, and four, six years of development,” Itagaki said. “We’ve really kept all of you fans waiting, but for our first title since going independent, it wouldn’t be fun if we released a small game, so [Devil’s Third] is the result of making something while going all out.”
Itagaki also mentioned the singleplayer aspect of the game, although Devil’s Third’s appeal is supposed to be the multiplayer mode.
“The single player is made to be like the action games of yesteryear,” he stated. “And the online competitive multiplayer mode was designed on a scale that will make you go ‘this much already?!’ The release date announcement will still take a little longer, but let’s play together when it releases. It’s loads of fun!!”
