Poll: Devil's Third or Splatoon - which is Wii U's premiere multiplayer? (58 votes)

devil's third 19%
splatoon 60%
neither 19%

Everyone talks about Splatoon but what about Devil's Third? Surely the game can't be that bad if Itagaki is behind it. I'll put my money on that. Splatoon is 4v4 and looks like it could get boring quick (kind of like Titanfail). You, SW?

Splatoon looked fun from what they've shown.

Devil's Third looks downright bad.

Splatoon looks downright bad, while Devil's Third doesn't.

Okay. That doesn't look as bad as the footage I saw, but I still find Splatoon to be a much more interesting looking title.

Wait, Devil's Third has multiplayer? LOLOLOLOL. What the hell.

The video actually makes it look like it would have been fun, if it was a last gen PS3/360 game and actually ran properly with a decent population of players. I mean it looks kinda like a crazy version of last gen SOCOM with Ninjas. However I have NO DOUBT, that Devil's Third on the Wii-U will be a broken unplayable mess, and it will be all empty lobbies anyway. Why are they even bothering?

I think Splatoon might have a chance though.

I guess they both look fun. Personally I think Splatoon will be more fun.

Of those two, it'll be Splatoon. Although Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart will give both a run for their money.

Out of curiosity, why do you think it will be broken?

The poll would be more accurate if it listed MK8 and Smash TBH.

Devil's Third does look OK but Splatoon looks most interesting as it's doing something quite different. This always ticks a big box for me.

TC has provided us with 2 choices.

  • One of them looks like a banal shooter with iron sights and other crap I hate that also somehow ended up on the wrong console.
  • The other one is splatoon.

Hard to say, both games look to have fun multiplayers, not sure what or if any content will be there for Splatoon's SP, Devil's Third SP looks meh, but at least there's something there.

Premiere multiplayer will be the same for Nintendo as it has the last three generations; Smash Bros and Mario Kart.

I'm more excited about Devil's Third. Nintendo is going to give Itagaki the time and resources to polish that game until it runs silky smooth, and it is going to be great.

poor itagaki. his game's gonna suffer because he didn't make it look like a saturday morning cartoon for 12 years old. This is why nintendo's consoles are going nowhere.

But it's his fault too for putting the game on a console that none of his fans care about. You can tell by all the butthurt on twitter and on his facebook. Nearly everyone said they are not buying a Wii U for Devil's Third.

Yes, poor Itagaki. His game was in development hell because none of the major publishers thought it would sell well enough to fund it, and big, bad Nintendo decided to pay for his game. Now he will only sell about 500,000 copies instead of the 700,000 he would have sold if some good company would have funded him.

Splatoon is a fantastic concept. Their execution is going to have to be equally as good for it to go anywhere.

If devils third didn't go first person when you aim down the sight, I would be more interested, because as it stands right now it's clunky as hell.

But Splatoon has already impressed me with its mechanics and gameplay.

Splatoon is gonna be a pretty big deal when it comes out. They seem to have an incredible formula in place and the fact that the game has gotten thousands of fanart drawings already shows people are interested

Splatoon could be a hit. I like how the goal is not to kill lol. I'll check it out for sure. But a 40$ retail price would be nice.

Devil's third multiplayer looks better than the single player but it's still looking rough. I like the hand to hand and sword combat tho.

Splatoon.

Boy, there is a lot of Devils Third hate going on. Sure, the game looks rough, but it still has a lot going for it. Personally, I'm not interested in the multi-player, but the single player looks pretty fun even though it looks really unpolished from what we've seen.

There really is no wonder as to why Nintendo can't get 3rd parties it's because they keep overshadowing all of the 3rd parties they manage to get. 3rd parties can't seem to make money on Nintendo systems.

nintendo fanboys talk a lot of shit about graphics but I bet most of them don't care about Devil's Third because of how it looks. Isn't that ironic?

When it comes to challenging and unique gameplay I think Itagaki proved himself a long time ago when he saved Tecmo from bankruptcy with Ninja Gaiden on Xbox. And yeah, he made that super fun Snes game Super Tecmo Bowl too. Then again he made one of the best 3D fighting games in the form of Dead or Alive. A series that surpassed both Tekken and Virtua Fighter when they were at its prime.

Itagaki is boss.
