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.

Hope it never comes to the 360…I'm still mad about Dead Rising 1.

@ Ben,

I'm not sure if Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes is Devil Kings 3 or if it is just a side story (the way Sengoku Basara 2 Heroes was a "sequel" to Sengoku Basara 2) because I recall Capcom announcing Sengoku Basara 3 for the Wii, which would be Devil Kings 3.

Never heard of this franchise before but I've never liked the whole dynasty warriors take on combat it annoys the hell outta me. If capcom's adding DMC flare then maybe it'll be worth a look but in the meantime no T^T and they better get to the real news soon or im gonna burst! ^_^

I wonder why Capcom is not making a 360 version yet will be making a Wii version?

Did Microsoft piss in their cornflakes?
Anyways glad to see my PS3 will have another game to choose from!

I remember Capcom saying they have better return on the PS3. That maybe why. I don't see how since we got nothing but Crap(com) from them this gen.

Ok ok, excluding DMC4 for you DMC fans out there. I personally don't like DMC but I can respect others fondness for it.

Certain kinds of games sell in Japan, but don't sell sh*t in the West. So in such cases, it makes more sense to sell it only on the ps3 and wii, the two top-selling consoles of Japan.

@Aftab,

True. But then why are there so many JRPGs and shmups releasing exclusively on the 360 in Japan? Two genres that historically sell better in Japan than elsewhere. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Devil may cry 4 wasn't even that good. So I don't see why a fifth installment would make a difference. Unless the series goes back to being a playstation exclusive.

I've never liked it either. It always felt, too generic and tacky if that makes any sense.

I know exactly what you mean. It's almost as if it was born from a discarded idea, oh wait it was. It was a thrown out plan for Resident Evil 4. ūüėČ

DMC wasnt that good but it certainly wasn't bad, in fact its far from bad.
The best DMC to date has gotta be DMC3 Special Edition.
Anyway, I've always liked Devil Kings 1, its similar to dynasty warriors but it has its own touch n it feels much more intense than dynasty warriors IMO, so I'm really looking forward to Devil Kings 3!!

Capcom is probably just waiting to announce DMC5 when they actually have something to show off. Do you want Capcom to just go, 'hey everyone, we're making DMC5, but we don't have any media so here's the game's logo.,' like SCEA did when they announced Agent?

Why do i get the feeling that MOST of the ppl that said DMC wasnt good, either got stuck somewhere or sucked-ass at it? Never hearda devil kings. . . Awaiting trailers.
