"I think it’s a stage big enough for Ryu Hayabusa to play an active role"
We haven't seen Ryu Hayabusa on a Nintendo console for nearly nine years now. Though Ninja Gaiden 3: Razors Edge made its way to Wii U back in 2012, rumours had previously surfaced about a reboot trilogy compilation on Switch. Like many popular characters, Ninja Gaiden's...
"Now I feel like I want to make a game again"
Tomonobu Itagaki, the man behind the Dead or Alive and modern-era Ninja Gaiden titles, is ready to get back in the game after four years away. With his flowing hair and ever-present sunglasses, Itagaki is one of Japanese gaming's most recognisable characters, but he hasn't produced a video game since...

It seems that people and companies in the modern age will find just about anything to get upset over enough to sue each other. It can be quite entertaining to see the things that get brought to court, such as the infamous case where Red Bull had to pay $10 to anybody that's ever bought the energy drink...
"That’s extremely unfortunate for everyone involved"
Devil's Third is out now in Europe and the reviews haven't been glowing. Tomonobu Itagaki's Wii U exclusive has been given something of a drubbing by critics, with outlets such as IGN, Eurogamer and GameSpot handing it dire critical assessments. Itagaki has taken to
"I was be able to understand about the reactions"

The rumours appear to be true
Yesterday we brought you the shock news that Devil's Third has been canned by Nintendo of America in the U.S. due to concerns about the final quality of the product. We noted that an alternative publisher will have to be found if Devil's Third is ever going to see the light of day in America. It appears that the rumour...
An alternative publisher may need to be found for the Wii U exclusive
Remember Devil's Third? An action title from the creator of the more recent Ninja Gaiden games - Tomonobu Itagaki - it was first announced a few years ago for the PS3 and Xbox 360, but when publisher THQ went under the game was left in limbo. Nintendo shocked everyone by picking...
New trailer and screens explode into view
It's been a while since we heard any solid information on Devil's Third, but with E3 fast approaching it seems like Valhalla Game Studios is making up for lost time. Studio boss Tomonobu Itagaki may have kept any insights relating to the Wii U exclusive close to his chest, but that has all changed today -...
"Not just about fighting, but about diplomacy and forming treaties"
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...
"The game isn't just a simple shooter"
Devil's Third was one of the big shocks of E3 2014. The brainchild of former Team Ninja head Tomonobu Itagaki, it was previously announced for the PS3 and 360 but is now a Wii U exclusive. Speaking to Famitsu, Itagaki has revealed a few more details regarding the game's story, gameplay modes and the process of...
