Devil’s Third

A few new screenshots from Devil’s Third have appeared online, and they’re all in the gallery below. I’m not entirely sure where they’ve come from, but we’ve heard talk of media members in Europe getting their hands on the game. The images likely come from that build.

Thanks to Zon2 for the tip.

Nintendo of America has finally shared an update regarding Devil’s Third in North America, though the message was brief.

On the NOA Twitter account, the company acknowledged fan interest in the title. Nintendo also said that they’ll be sharing more news soon, and “are excited to bring the game to Wii U”. That comment may suggest that Nintendo is still handling publishing duties in North America.

Here’s the official message:

I’m honestly surprised that Nintendo even commented on the situation at all. We’ll have to see how everything plays out!


Word on the street is that Nintendo will not be publishing Devil’s Third in North America, unlike Europe and Japan. However, Siliconera claims that another company has already picked up the game for release in the states.

The site states in a new report, “Siliconera has learned Devil’s Third will be released here by a publisher Siliconera readers are quite familiar with.”

I’d guess that XSEED will be handling Devil’s Third in North America. I could be wrong though!


Nintendo of America has been noticeably quiet regarding the release of Devil’s Third in North America. Whereas it’s already been dated for August in both Europe and Japan, there hasn’t been a peep about its arrival in the states.

Liam Robertson, who has a fantastic track record of digging up information about cancelled projects as well as games that are still in the works, reports in a new video today that Nintendo won’t be publishing Devil’s Third in North America. It’d be up for Valhalla Game Studios to find a new company to handle its distribution in order for a release to happen.

Tomonobu Itagaki, creator of Devil’s Third, has given some hope that the game will see a release in North America.

In a message posted to his personal Facebook page, Itagaki writes:

I will release my Devil’s Third in North/South America!
My will.

English isn’t Itagaki’s native language, so don’t worry too much about how the above message was phrased. The takeaway here is that Itagaki seems to give hope that Devil’s Third will end up seeing a stateside release.

There have been some concerns as of late that Devil’s Third won’t launch in North America. While Nintendo recently announced that the game would be coming to Europe and Japan in August, no such confirmation has come in for North America. Devil’s Third was not at all present at E3 either.

Update: I’m not too sure that this is really an indication of anything, but the game has apparently been pulled from the “future releases” section of the Wii U eShop. Make of that what you will!

Devil’s Third was recently dated for August in both Japan and Europe. In North America, however, Nintendo has been keeping quiet. That continued into E3 2015, where Nintendo of America’s senior director of corporate communications Charlie Scibetta had nothing to say about it.

When asked about the status of Devil’s Third last week, Scibetta only noted: “I don’t have anything for you on Devil’s Third. Sorry.”

No one seems to have a clear idea about what’s going on with Devil’s Third in North America. Let’s just hope that we hear something soon.


Last night, Nintendo revealed that Devil’s Third is heading to Japan on August 4. That was followed by a release date announcement of August 28 for Europe. North America is now the only piece of the puzzle that’s missing.

If GameFly is to be believed, Devil’s Third is also coming to North America on August 28. We’ll need an confirmation from Nintendo before we can take this out of rumor territory, but the one thing I can say is that this retailer has proven accurate in the past. In any case, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see official news during E3 next week.

The retail version of Devil’s Third is seeing a limited release in Japan. As it turns out, Wii U owners will only be able to purchase the packaged edition on Amazon Japan. The eShop is an option for those who wish to buy the game digitally.
