Okay, so it's a long ways off. So what? The game is insane enough to warrant some attention this early on, right?
According to Electronic Theatre , Valhalla Game Studios and THQ have said Devil's Third is slated for release in 2012. An over-the-top third-person shooter with Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive guru Tomonobu Itagaki at the development helm, the game turned a lot of heads when it was revealed earlier this year. Itagaki left Team Ninja in 2009 and maintains the "bad boy of gaming" label; this is also his first time working with the PlayStation 3. On his blog, he said:
"In the past, I created four unique games – Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, DOA Xtreme and NG Dragon Sword. Thus, this announcement will be the fifth all-new project in my lifetime. I don’t know if that number is large or small, but I know as a fact that every one of those announcements was a presentation of a new gaming paradigm from me to all of you."
Devil's Third is also Valhalla's debut title and if you somehow missed the big reveal some months back, here's the E3 trailer that got everyone talking.
