Remember Devil’s Third? The promising action game from Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden developer/outspoken personality Tomonobu Itagaki? Originally shown at E3 2010, the game was being developed by Itagaki-san’s new studio Valhalla Games and being published by THQ for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, THQ decided not to continue publishing the game last year. Thankfully, according to website Eurogamer, Devil’s Third has been given another shot at release thanks to Korean publisher Doobic Games. What’s more, the game is also now coming to PC.
-Nick’s take: Devil’s Third looks like a promising mix of sword and gun combat. I don’t expect it to have the same quality as many triple A action games, but it could still be a lot of fun. I’ve never heard of Doobic Games, but maybe they can give Devil’s Third the resources and marketing it needs to be a hit.
