Today Nintendo released a batch of screenshots and a trailer of the upcoming Wii U exclusive by Tomonobu Itagaki’s Valhalla Games Devil’s Third.
I really really want this game to be good. The more action games we get the better. Gameplay looked a little rough at e3 2014, Its looking a little smoother in this trailer. Excited to see it at E3
I can PERSONALLY guarantee that they are going to sell at least one copy ;)
Make that 2 copy's!
Make that a third one. Barring any drastic changes in the quality of the game, I will be buying it.
you missed a chance to say Devil's third or make some kind of pun with third
I too expected a pun. And aye; a 4th for me.
Itagaki looks like mafia gang leader ...the game looks fun but the FPS quick change is confusing and bad IMO
My Wii U is currently broken, and not covered by warranty because my 3 year old put a bank card in the drive. Fair enough it isn't covered, but Nintendo want £127.50 for the repair. Jokers. I have to play Itagaki's games though, so I suppose I'll buy a new one when a good offer comes around.
Make that 4 one for me and one for my nephew
Personally, I just can't get into it. Its design/art direction look pretty bland.
Remember Itagaki San developed the Ninja Gaiden games so this has to be good. And for those missing out on the pun earlier here's one. I'm not desperate for a Wii U so I will pass on a Devil's Turd. Ok you can throw the rotten eggs at me now.
Looks like a B quality title, hopefully it plays better than it looks. I want to believe in you, Itagaki! Sadly, it will bomb at retail.
and all you people who say it will bomb can make a different by buying the game
I preordered Devil's Third a few days ago. I'm so psyched to play this game!! I think the people on Miiverse that shunned Call of Duty might gravitate to this awesome looking game I saw a lot of detail in the screen shots. Cool!!!!
I already paid off my pre-order at Gamestop several weeks ago, I'm more than ready for this game to come out.
bubble up for you ... we need more posters like you having more say.
As long as it runs at a good framerate, its fine with me. The combat looks a lot crunchier and less technical than ninja gaiden, almost like a western take on HnS games. The dynamic first person switch though is where it will get technical.
People complain when there's no B-tier games, then when there is they complain that it looks like garbage.
Because this one particular B game looks like it was designed to compete directly with AAA games. I feel like B-tier games should appeal to the niche markets that AAA games don't go near. AAA games have the "big, dumb, violent shooter" genre saturated. The best B games are the ones that are just slightly too conceptually unsafe for pubs to dump mountains of money onto, but still creative and accessible enough to appeal to just about everyone. Who knows, though. Maybe Devils Third will be just weird enough to be different.
Did I just see an August 4th release date dropped in that trailer?!
Yes, but the August date is only for Japan's release schedule. @ OtakuDJK1NG I'm willing to buy almost any game as long as its good despite some flaws. @mike1015 It's not exactly a good looking title even on Wii U. I don't necessarily have a problem with B quality titles (have played my fair share of em in the past), but I was just making an observation is all.
Multiplayer looks awesome!
Vast improvement over what we saw of this game last year. Looking forward to seeing more at E3.
God damn, that multiplayer looks fun as shit! Uh, and I mean that in a good way.
Nintendo is throwing out a lot of information I would have expected at E3......makes me wonder how many secrets they got going on right now. This maybe an epic digital event.
this game looks like a F2P game, dunno why.
Day 1 buy for me! I see a September release coming! I can't wait!
Another Japanese hack and slash. Gonna flop like that one damn game... what was it? Oh yeah, Metal Gear Rising....
MGR sold pretty... hmm... well.
I would love to know what blockbuster games you're comparing it too. It's not Call of Duty. It's not Battlefield. It's not GTA. It's not even up there with Mario...
Everything that doesnt sell that well is a flop? Wow, LOL
Visuals look horrid.
The game itself looks like it can be fun ,however I agree the game is visual fugly
Most people know I love Nintendo, yeah this LOOKS last gen. In fact it may have looked better last e3, before they chang d the look. Oh well still looks fun, and if it is I will pick it up for sure. Fugly graphics, textures and all.
Dont care what anyone think, this game look like it will be a lot of fun, switching between gun and weapons, and that multiplayer, oh my, I love what he doing for the multiplayer, this will be day 1 for me........ prepare to lose who ever meet me online
While it may not look great graphically, it's Itagaki. This guy makes making badass action games look easy. I mean he is a total badass, if that video was anything to go by. Either way, he's got the pedigree with this type of game to ensure that this game is going to be awesome. Also, that multiplayer looks like so much crazy fun!
Graphics look awesome trust me your blind,these directs are in low res and upscaled....
Uh, there is no way those textures are going to look much better. The game looks fun, but no dice on the textures. There were some very decent explosions. Hey graphics are not always everything. I have been comparing Sonic All Star Racing to MK8. MK8 definitely has some extremely beautiful lighting, textures, and so on, Transformed is blah compared to the fatastic looking MK8 tracks, however I have spent way more time playing Transformed, because the game has more content, and I think its a little more fun. Devils may not be as pretty as I'd like, but it still could be an awsome game.
Pre-ordered last year. Very hyped. I typically enjoy these B games more than most AAA games anyway.
looks fun as hell,more fun games than the boring swarm of serious games we're getting please
Day 1 purchase
I have a feeling, while the gameplay definitely wull be fun, the story will be average despite having interesting character design.
Kessler syndrome theory boring?!!
Syndrome what? I've been playing all Itagaki's games since DOA1. When he made Ninja Gaiden & Ninja Gaiden 2, those two definitely were great games, but the story seems shallow. But that doesn't matter though...
looks way better than last years trailet and yes multiplayer looks fun cant wait!!!
Visuals is the least thing i'm looking on a title, if the gameplay is solid then i'm sold:)
Hopefully this gets ported over to the PS3 and Xbox 360 at some point if sales don't materialize of the WiiU.
Hopefully you will do some research first, it won't get ported because Nintendo is publishing and funding the game, they own the IP. Its not happening.
Microsoft published the first Mass Effect... which still came out for PS3 several years later. Just because Sony / Microsoft / Ninty publish a game doesn't mean they actually own it. Sometimes that's the case, sometimes not. Are you sure Nintendo does, in fact, own the Devil's Third IP?
Good game wasted on the Wii U.
If it wasn't for Nintendo this game WOULDN'T EXIST!!!!!!
u mad bro?
This game looks bad ass af, but sadly i wont be buying a wii u for it.
Could be fun. Seems pretty multiplayer focused though. I hope Nintendo push it into some homes. At least in the west.
looks really good.. thumbs up from me.
No advertisement No retail release Mega Bomba confirmed for Japan.
Bullshit the Wii U is riding high in Japan thaks to some help from Splatoon. As long as it's marketed properly this bad rider should soar!!!!
There is alot of detail in the graphics if you pause it you can see the graphics are very nice and these direct videos are never in high quality and the screenshots look impressive cant wait to see it being played at E3....
The gameplay looks intense! despite what a few children are saying here, the graphics are not bad at all.
This game and Splatoon are all the more important now that Black Ops III is skipping the Wii U. Glad we've got two good shooters to offset what little feeling of loss there is in that news.
I couldn't even watch the video enough to see the game. The moment I saw that slimy bastard Itagaki, I had to turn it off. That guy seriously turns on my rape alarm.
He's married and has kids. That whole persona of his is just a facade for the media.
The accusations of sexual harassment by female Tecmo employees, misogynistic comments in interviews and smack talking of other game creators much more talented than him are NOT "just a facade for the media". This guy is a genuine creep.
This is going to be nice.
I'm so glad the game is looking a lot better now. Day one for me.
Loved the Ninja Gaiden games, but not sold on this.
He reminds me of a Japanese Stephen Tyler.
So, when's the NA release date?
This looks like it has potential, some of the transitions to cover were a bit jarring. Hoping they smooth some of this out before release though!
The music score for this is absolutely awesome. Beautiful soundtrack starting at minute 8:52. Kudos to the composer.
