Devil's Third, the long-in-development action game from Tomonobu Itagaki and Valhalla Game Studios, is now a Wii U-exclusive. Nintendo announced the news today at E3. The game was revealed in 2010, and was originally intended to be published by the now-defunct THQ for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

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.

For more on the title, be sure to check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

I'm not really interested in this game, but I think it's great Nintendo is adding more variety to an awesome list of exclusives for the Wii U. Even better that this is third party developed.

<< LINK REMOVED >> If you were interested in it, this is probably the only way it was going to get published... It also has Bayonetta 2 so it has a decent amount of action games(not many in the market these days).


TBH only the multiplayer looked interesting the rest of this game seems generic...

<< LINK REMOVED >> right...

It probably wasn't getting published till Nintendo bought it... THQ went under and with it most of the smaller IP's went with it.

Tbh, I was vexed at first sight of the news but after seeing this trailer, I'm not so upset... The game looked way better to me in the original trailer. Idk why Itagaki changed the main character so much, but I'm still glad he got a shot to put the game out.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I love Itagakis games and was really looking forward to it. But I guess it's as good as cancelled being I'll never get a Wii U. I've been waiting for news on this game forever and am so disappointed that his game is a Wii U exclusive (of all the places).

No comments except that they should hire Vin Diesel to voice that character.

You lying assholes said it was coming to PS3 and 360.


Well, I hope the developers are happy when this game doesn't sell.

<< LINK REMOVED >> oh look the guy that has been predicting Nintendo's down fall since the N64 comes in to complain...


News flash, THQ went under and the developers had to find a new publisher.... I'm sure they are happy their game managed to find one considering how small of a market it is aimed at.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I wasn't really into the original Bayonetta, but Hyrule Warriors and Devil's Third sound right up my alley. There were quite a few great games in the NDE, but sadly quite a few are 2015 titles.

Splatoon looks like it might be fun, but I hope it isn't online only. Also...who do I have to pay off to get Ori and the Blind Forest onto other consoles?

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> It does look pretty sweet. Since we're creating the main character ourselves, I wonder if it will turn out like White Knight Chronicles (where the created character was little more than a silent participant in events).

I am also a big Ninja Gaiden Black fan I also like NG2 and partially can put up with NG3 so I hoped for more stylish action at least on the Xbox or PC.

Right, in the meantime those of us not missing out on games just because of a need to complain that the Wii U has no games, will enjoy them...

<< LINK REMOVED >> Those games sucked because Itagacki left the developer before they came out to form his own studio. This is his first game on his own. The last Ninja Gaiden game he did was NG2. He's an epic action game developer and I'm so disappointed it's a Wii U game.

Great!

Finally, the Wii-U gets an exclusive specifically created for the average, mostly uneducated joe. Maybe it will sell better then!

I saw the multiplayer and single player demo on ign. And from what I have seen I am in. Especially with that multiplayer. It is nice to have cool games on the wii u. And if people don't like this tough. If third parties supported the machine nintendo would not have to buy the games you may have wanted for other systems. So come in or complain over a game. Seriously so pretend this or bayonetta is like nintendo getting fallout as a exclusive.
