Is Itagaki's career in AAA development over?

Tomonobu Itagaki got his start at Tecmo back in 1992 working as a graphics programmer on Tecmo Super Bowl for the SNES. It was a fitting start for a man whose career would be largely defined by creating games that fuse Japanese-born passion...

Buy tickets to see Dead or Alive's Itagaki in court

I say "Dead or Alive's Itagaki" because perhaps you forgot about the brash Team Ninja head. You wouldn't be at fault. Since leaving Team Ninja in 2008 all he's managed to put out is Devil's Third, an incredibly poorly received Wii U game th...

Want to see tons of Devil's Third footage? Well, it's out there, as Japan has had the game for roughly a week, and tons of new videos are available, including this one above that starts out really, really strangely. But really, I want...

Devil's Third still looks batshit in this new launch trailer

Devil's Third has had a bumpy ride, but it's nearly out in Europe -- it's set for an August 28 release date. In the meantime, you can take a look at what the game is all about in this new launch trailer, and man is it both intentional...

Devil's Third has microtransactions, hopefully they don't ruin the game

More details are coming out for Devil's Third by way of the official website. Evidently, multiplayer has multiple modes (as we've seen in the past), a few of which are Deathmatch, "Cross Fight," and "Carnival." The latter involves two teams...

Devil's Third multiplayer actually looks kind of fun

While the first few minutes of this new official Devil's Third trailer looks fairly boring, the multiplayer component, which starts at 2:30, actually seems kind of cool. Like Itagaki has said in the past it's a military-like affair, w...

Nintendo confirms it is publishing Devil's Third Wii U, PC version published by Valhalla

After rumblings that Nintendo of America had dropped Devil's Third (and that XSEED had picked it up), the publisher just confirmed to Destructoid that the game will launch in North America in "quarter four of this year" under its banner. Th...

Itagaki blames negative Devil's Third previews on player skill

The situation surrounding a North American release for Devil's Third remains precarious, but it's launching next month in Europe, where critics recently got some hands-on time with the game. The reaction thus far has been overwhelmingly neg...

Itagaki throws GamePad under bus for Devil's Third, talks recent press criticism

Devil's Third footage is now out in the wild, and depending on who you ask, it's either glorious or terrible. For the most part the consensus from press who have played it seems to be that it's unintentionally bad, but may end up being a cu...

Nintendo acknowledges the odd Devil's Third situation with a tweet

Something weird is going on with Devil's Third. We learned recently that the game was rumored to be dropped by Nintendo of America due to quality concerns. Allegedly, the game is not shaping up to be up to snuff for Nintendo, and more ...

Rumor: Nintendo of America drops Devil's Third for US release

After Devil's Third was a no-show at E3 this year and its listing on the Wii U eShop recently disappeared, many were left scratching their heads and wondering if the game would even release in the United States. Turns out Nintend...

Itagaki pledges to release Devil's Third in the Americas

Devil's Third has been in development for half as long as some of our readers have been alive, and it shows. The game feels a lot like something that might have been big in 2008, mixing sword-and-gun action with unintentionally funny machis...

Devil's Third gets a new logo, more info coming 'this year'

It feels like Devil's Third, action veteran Tomonobu Itagaki's latest venture, was announced forever ago. That's probably because it was, and after all these years, we haven't gotten much info at all on what the game is actually about. But ...

Devil's Third is now fully owned by Itagaki and Valhalla

Some time ago, THQ had picked up Itagaki's latest action game Devil's Third, hoping to distribute it worldwide at some point in time. Then, years, later, we find out that THQ was actually attempting to offload the project onto another publi...

Devil's Third is having production troubles

Who would have thought, right? It's no secret that I have great respect and admiration for Itagaki and his games. But it's also fairly obvious that wherever Itagaki goes, trouble will follow. The issues his new production company Valhalla S...

Itagaki-developed Devil's Third won't launch until 2013

We've seen hide nor hair of anything developed by Itagaki since he left Team Ninja in 2008, and according to the Prince of Videogame Darkness, we won't be seeing anything in the near future either. Not until 2013 at the latest, which is whe...
