Quirky Japanese action-adventure Devil’s Third is getting a surprise western release for PC and Wii U.
Devil’s Third is a quirky, “over-the-top” Japanese action-adventure title from Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki’s new studio: Valhalla Game Studios. Like most quirky Japanese titles, we had assumed this one wasn’t getting a western release, but lo and behold today Valhalla and Nintendo have confirmed that the game will be making its way stateside: on both the Wii U and the PC.
Nintendo said the release that it would be publishing the Wii U version of the game, and Valhalla would be working on the PC port by itself. Before you get too excited about a PC version, while the Wii U version will feature both a single-player story mode and a multiplayer mode, the PC version “will offer a multiplayer experience tailored for the platform.”
What this means is up-in-the-air, but Valhalla did describe the port as “free-to-start”, which presumably means free-to-play with microtransactions. Hooray.
The game will be released both at retail, and through the Nintendo eShop, and should hit shelves some time in “Q4, 2015”.
