Wii U-Exclusive Devil's Third Gets New Gameplay Trailer, Release Date

Tomonobu Itagaki's action game will be here sooner than you might have thought.


Nintendo on Wednesday shared more details about Devil's Third, the upcoming Wii U-exclusive developed by Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden's Tomonobu Itagaki and his team at Valhalla Game Studios.

First up, Nintendo has confirmed that the game, which combines shooting and hack-and-slash elements, will launch on August 28. That date applies to Europe, while a North American date was not announced.

A new trailer has also been released, in which we see Itagaki setting up--in Japanese--what we're seeing. Though you may not understand what he's saying, there is still plenty of new gameplay footage to look at.

Being a Wii U-exclusive, we wouldn't be surprised if Devil's Third showed up during Nintendo's E3 briefing next week.

Devil's Third was originally going to be published by the now-defunct publisher THQ. At the time, it was an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC game, but later shifted to become a Nintendo-exclusive.
