Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive veteran designer Tomonobu Itagaki's upcoming action game Devil's Third is poised for a comeback. The developer today shared a new logo for the game on his Facebook page and said the game will finally be officially (re)-revealed later this year.
Itagaki left Team Ninja in 2008 and later established Valhalla Game Studios with other veterans of the Ninja Gaiden developer. The studio announced Devil's Third in 2010 at which time THQ was expected to publish the game.
After THQ went bankrupt in 2012, the game's fate was left in the balance. However, Itagaki reclaimed the Devil's Third rights from THQ and said late last year that the game was 80 percent complete and on schedule for a release in 2014. The game was at one point scheduled for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, though it's unclear if the game has shifted to new consoles like the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Wii U.
Valhalla Game Studios has major plans for the game, as it expects to expand the Devil's Third property into other forms of media, including manga, novels, animation, and film, in an effort to spin the fiction into a "blockbuster franchise."
