Devil’s Third – 30 FPS, no split-screen or voice chat, other specs and Itagaki comments

Posted on July 17, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Tomonobu Itagaki made a Facebook post earlier today covering some additional information about the title.

First, the game is set at 30 frames per second. Split-screen has also been ruled out for offline and online play, as the team “used all the power of Wii U for single player.” There is also no voice chat because Valhalla Game Studios “maxed out its bandwidth to achieve online play by 16 users.”

Head past the break to read up on Itagaki’s full comments.

[Dear media guys and gamers]

It seems that the world is in disorder…no way. I feel that the informations on Devil’s Third are tangled.
So I decided to tell you guys about the Specifications and recommended playing devices best suited for Devil’s Third, plus useful infomation for you guys.
I felt the time has come for me to talk about.

[About the specifications of Devil’s Third]

Frame rate: 30fps.
*note: I promise you can fully enjoy this MASSIVE shooter with 30 fps.
Split Screen: This game don’t have split screen feature for both offline and online play. ‘Cuz I used all the power of Wii U for single player. That was tough tradeoff for me. Plz understand.
Voice chat: We don’t equip voice chat feature. ‘Cuz we had maxed out its bandwidth to achieve online play by 16 users.
Yo Guys,
Don’t disappoint, and don’t be negative. I promise the wide/deep/brandnew playability for you guys today sunglasses emoticon

[Recommended Playing Devices]

Wii U of course smile emoticon
TV set.
PRO contoroller.
USB keyboard.
Wired Internet.
Thanks for your constant support for Devil’s Third.
Let’s make the future together!

“Why do I recommend Pro-controller? I never wanna discount standard tab-controller. But, Devil’s Third is a super speedy game. So tab-controller has following disadvantages:
1. Four face buttons are positioned overcrowding. So you easily press the wrong button. In that case, you will die.
2. Distance of two analogue sticks are too far apart. So it’s quite difficult for you to feel/grasp the battlefield.
3. Devil’s Third is a game you play a long time. The standard tab-controler is too heavy for such use.”
Coming from Valhalla…
To: Media Friends who preview the multiplayer mode
As Itagaki mentioned in his FB column, please use PRO controller along with a USB keyboard when you preview Devil’s Third.

(Tablet controller is not recommended)
For your information, the multiplayer mode of Devil’s Third is designed to be played by tens of thousands of players. We understand it’s going to be a very tough job to evaluate such a game. It will be much appreciated if you will use your imagination to get the depth when you play the multiplayer mode.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and your attention to above.
