Devil’s Third

Valhalla Game Studios is using Unreal Engine 3 to create Devil’s Third. That’s according to an official post on the Unreal Engine blog, which lists the Wii U title.

Devil’s Third was re-announced at this year’s E3 after several years of silence. A release date hasn’t been determined at this time.

This information comes from Devil’s Third creator Tomonobu Itagaki, speaking with Joystiq…

“We developed the game up to an early playable version at THQ but then there was the unfortunate end of that company. Then, when we went looking for partners and found Nintendo who really supported my vision. I’m not really sure if it would have been possible ten years ago to be honest, but I’ve had a long relationship with Nintendo going back to the Nintendo and Super Nintendo. Once I went independent, I definitely went over to Nintendo to say hello.”

“I like to think of myself as a warrior. There will always be accidents on the battlefield. You have to find ways through those and adapt. The world has been through financial crises in the past few years yet we’ve all found ways to continue on. One thing that’s different from my previous company is my relationship to the people I’m working with. Previously I wasn’t necessarily responsible for hiring and taking care of everyone, but my position is different now and I feel a lot of responsibility for my team.”

“I’m not one to go looking for fights in back alleys. I prefer to find them in a big avenue. That’s why I tried to pick the most major genre I could think of, the modern shooter. That’s what led me to make Devil’s Third.”

“When people play this game I want them to think, ‘What does it mean to live?’ I want them to think about life itself. What does it mean to be alive? What does someone believe in a world like this? We’re all citizens in a very fragile world order, as if it’s made of a glass, that can shatter at any moment.”


Tomonobu Itagaki and Valhalla Studios have revealed that Devil’s Third is coming to Wii U.

We haven’t covered much about Devil’s Third here, but the project has been in development for many, many years. Devil’s Third was originally going to be published by THQ.

Itagaki made the announcement during an IGN live stream show currently ongoing.
