Capcom has announced two new games and while one of them is exclusive to the Nintendo DS, the other will be headed to both the PlayStation 3 and Wii.
It's known as Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes in Japan, but we'll know it as Devil Kings 3 in North America. Past entries in the series have always appeared on PlayStation platforms but this new installment will boast faster, flashier gameplay, ala Devil May Cry . We'll get over two dozen playable characters, you'll take the field against hundreds of bloodthirsty opponents and DMC producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi is currently working on the project. Furthermore, for the very first time in the series, the PS3 version will have online co-op play, which could be an absolute blast if you've got a friend who enjoys hackin' and slashin'. The structure appears to be similar to Dynasty Warriors but with that added DMC-ish panache, the final production might be that much fresher and more appealing. Of course, we would much rather have heard about Devil May Cry 5 at TGS but perhaps we just have to wait a bit longer… Don't leave the avid franchise fans hanging, Capcom!
Devil Kings 3 is slated to arrive in North America and Europe some time next year. We'll try to scrounge up more details and information – and hopefully some media – in the meantime.
