PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners already have to wait quite a long time for the arrival of Valhalla Game Studios’ upcoming third-person shooter game Devil’s Third, and now it looks as though they will have to wait even longer than they originally expected.
In fact, Anoop Gantayat from andriasang.com reports that Tomonobu Itagaki has confirmed that his new game will not be hitting stores until the early part of 2013. When asked about the game’s completion percentage, Itagaki gave two completely different numbers.
Itagaki said that although it is 100% complete in terms of the mechanical sections of the game, it does need volume and replay value etc, so on that side of things it is only around 20-30 percent complete. However, Itagaki did reveal that the game’s multiplayer component is already in a playable state.
Judging by Itagaki’s answer to a question about how many people will be able to get in on the action, it looks like the multiplayer side of Devil’s Third may have support for up to 32 players. The designer also revealed that the campaign mode will only be single player and will not feature co-op.
It looks like there could be one good thing coming out of waiting so long for the game to be released, as Itagaki also hinted that the Devil’s Third game may even come to the newly announced Nintendo Wii U console. We can expect more details at the Tokyo Game Show later this year.
What do you think about the possibility of the Devil’s Third game coming to the Wii U?
