Going in to E3 2015, many fans were very eager to hear/see news on Nintendo Wii U-exclusive, Devil’s Third. Especially after seeing a Japan-specific video that featured game director, Tomonobu Itagaki of Valhalla Games speaking about the game while also showing new gameplay footage, just days before E3. However, disappointment set in quickly at the glaring lack of its showing (or even being mentioned) during the week.
There have been many rumors circling the game’s release in North America, which have only been worsened by cryptic assurances from Itagaki-san and silence from NOA…until today. NOA finally mentioned that existence of the NA version of the game, via Twitter.
It should also be noted that during the video mentioned earlier, the Japanese release date with given as August 4 and later given for Europe as August 28. It is reassuring for many, that NOA has indeed addressed the fans and their concerns. For some reason lately, many fans have chosen to subscribe to the sentiment that Nintendo is not hearing the fans and customers, and I hope that this helps to calm some of those people.
Have you been anticipating the Devil’s Third NA release? Does this tweet help to reassure you? Let me know in the comments below.
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!
