The devil is in the detail

Remember Devil's Third? At last year's E3 the game was confirmed as a Wii U exclusive, but we've seen precious little of it since then - a strange situation when you consider it that many assumed it would be launching this year.

While little has been seen of the game, creator Tomonobu Itagaki has still been talking about it - in a roundabout way, at least. He spoke recently to People's Daily about smartphone games, and ended up chatting about this forthcoming Wii U release as well.

Interestingly, Itagaki - who is most famous for his work on Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive franchises - revealed that the game is much more than just a shooter, and will incorporate elements of diplomacy:

We always seek to innovate in games, and so it means they will not be the same. We're currently working on a game called "Devil's Third." It is different than previous games up until now, as it is not just about fighting, but about diplomacy and forming treaties in the midst of a war in a realistic world setting. All of this is mashed up into one game. It is a world where peace is sought. My colleagues and I worked to put all this within a "war game." Eventually it became a household game for the Wii U, but we are currently developing games for mobile too.

It's likely that Devil's Third will form a large part of Nintendo's presentation at this year's E3 - are you keen to see more of the game, having read Itagaki's fresh comments? Let us know by posting something below.
