Valhalla Game Studios is seemingly at work on its next game

Devil's Third wasn't everything I hoped it would be, but I saw the skeleton of a great action game underneath all that muck. Maybe with a remaster on another console that fixed the technical issues and the plodding pacing of the campai...

Devil's Third multiplayer to go offline at the end of 2016

When Devil's Third launched, practically nobody managed to get their hands on a copy and even fewer critics ended up liking it. Our own Chris Carter gave the game a fairly tepid review, calling the campaign "disappointing" but giving the mu...

Review: Devil's Third

Devil's Third has been in the pipeline for so long, that any given year I completely forgot about it. Announced in 2010, after the infamous Tomonobu Itagaki left Tecmo in 2008, the game has been in development limbo, passed around with...

Where is our review for Devil's Third? No US review copies

Tomorrow, Devil's Third, a game years in the making, will be released in the US on Wii U, published by Nintendo. So where is all the fanfare, and reviews from US outlets? Nowhere, because Nintendo isn't sending out review copies for it...

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...

Devil's Third Online announced for PC

Valhalla Game Studios has always noted the existence of a PC edition of Devil's Third, but today, it officially announced Devil's Third Online. It's basically a stripped down version of the Wii U game, which eliminates the campaign and only...

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...

Photo realistic cat heads in Wii U's The Devil's Third

It's weird clicking a mature content warning on a video on Nintendo's YouTube with Mario staring innocently at me. But the collaboration between Itagaki and Nintendo for The Devil's Third, revived as a Wii U exclusive, is weird, too. ...

Itagaki talks collaborating with Nintendo on Devil's Third

First Bayonetta 2, and now Devil's Third. Two unexpected but welcome games arriving exclusively on Wii U, thanks to Nintendo. The latter title, long in development at Valhalla Game Studios and led by Ninja Gaiden's Tomonobu Itagaki, resurfa...

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 coming next year, promises Itagaki

I haven't exactly been wondering what designer Tomonobu Itagaki's been up to as of late, but now I'm curious. His team at Valhalla Game Studios was working on Devil's Third last we heard, although updates on the project have been few and fa...

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...

How Aerosmith and Armageddon changed Itagaki's life

My eyes roll at Aerosmith's hit song "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing," but game creator Tomonobu Itagaki gets tears in his eyes when he hears it. He explained how the song and the Bruce Willis movie Armageddon changed his life, during a talk at...

Interview: Speaking to Tomonobu Itagaki for Devil's Third

While certain people in the games industry make me jump up and down with excitement, there are others who make my personality do a complete U-turn and Tomonobu Itagaki is one of them. Instead of swearing and squealing I become al...

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...
