Devil's Third launches in Japan and Europe next month and as a result we're seeing plenty of fresh information relating to Tomonobu Itagaki's forthcoming action title.

The official site for the game has just gone live in Japan, and contains plenty of interesting data. For example, the game's online mode is explained in more detail. The main multiplayer mode involves fighting for control of the United States, but there are other modes available, including Team Deathmatch, Cross Fight and Carnival - the latter of which involves players fighting over pieces of fruit. We'll be covering the game's online portion in greater depth in our second Devil's Third preview.

Interestingly, the game will also feature microtransactions which allow you to buy in-game currency using real-world cash. Golden Eggs can either be turned into in-game money or traded for gear which can be equipped in multiplayer. You'll also be able to share your "play status" to Miiverse.

Finally, the size of the game is also detailed. Devil's Third will occupy a whopping 16.4GB of space on your Wii U's internal storage, and each player save file takes up an additional 16MB. If you don't already have one, now might be a good time to invest in an external HDD.

Devil's Third launches in Japan on August 4th and in Europe on August 28th. A North American release is coming later in the year.
