Devil's Third Back on Track

Devil's Third Back on Track

Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil's Third may yet be released thanks to Combat Arms developer, Doobic.

The last we heard of Devil's Third, the first project from Ninja Gaiden director, Tomonobu Itagaki, since his departure from Tecmo, was that the game was half-finished and desperately seeking a publisher. That didn't stop Valhalla Game Studios from announcing they were turning the IP into a full-blooded multimedia franchise, an announcement that seemed somewhat optimistic given that THQ had just dropped the title due to concerns about its profitability.

Today, Valhalla Game CEO, Satoshi Kanematsu, announced that the studio has established a "mutual technical collaboration contract" with Combat Arms developer, Doobic. Doobic will apparently be helping Valhalla finish the game while it seeks a new publisher. The new entity created by the collaboration contract has been given a somewhat less-than-catchy name, Valhalla&Doobic Co., Ltd.

Not only is Devil's Third now somewhat more likely to see the light of day, Doobic will also be working on PC and Tablet versions of the game.

I usually include a video of Devil's Third in action for these articles, but that picture of Itagaki and co is just irresistibly goofy. So here's a link to the game's trailer instead. Enjoy.

Hey I'll still buy it. Never heard of Doobic though I hope they do a good PC port.

Wow there is a downright lethal level of "Deal with It" radiating from that photo.

I'm not usually a fan of these crazy, over-the-top games from Japan, but this one actually looks pretty cool. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

Game looks great, here's hoping someone picks it up and publishes it. But a tablet port? That one's gonna be fucking terrible.

Not as bad as this girl.

They all turned sixteen and got each other pregnant.

In my opinion they're trying too hard. There's an almost Salingeresque level of phony dripping from that photo.

I`ve lost my interest. It took a bit to long with lots of promises without showing enough from the game. To me it looks like it`s going downhill. Like always i still hope that it turns out good somehow.
