Secret GTTV Game Is Itagaki And THQ's Devil's Third
Well, that was interesting.
THQ boss Danny Bilson and that "legendary game designer" we've been hearing about have now revealed their new project on GameTrailersTV, called Devil's Third. The world premiere trailer just went on the air about two minutes ago and the video is below: as most of you know, Itagaki - often known as the "bad boy" of game developers - once worked with Tecmo to produce some of the finest action games available; they featured the name, "Ninja Gaiden." Well, Devil's Third is clearly a visceral combination of those classic Japanese influences with Western intensity; there's a huge amount of blood, massive gunplay mixed with sword-fighting, dudes running along walls in traditional ninja fashion whilst dodging incoming minigun fire, etc. Towards the end of the teaser, a female character runs up a wall and decapitates an unknowing enemy with ferocious speed. Itagaki himself made the announcement from Tokyo (and he always looks the same), and he said his new team at Valhalla Games wanted to embrace new forms of movement and action.
It certainly looks promising. They're combining elements we really never thought we'd see combined; one minute, it looks like a bloodier version of NG and the next, it's a third-person shooter with outlandish platforming. Gotta keep an eye on this one.
