Well this is a surprise.
Devil’s Third, previously announced for PS3 and Xbox 360, is now a Nintendo-published Wii U exclusive. The game is the vision of Tomonobo Itagaki, and is being developed by his studio of ex-Team Ninja devs, Valhalla Game Studios. It was originally slated to be published by the now-defunct THQ.
A quick glimpse at the trailer and you’ll notice one thing: this is far from your typical Nintendo fare. One has to question if the company would have ever made this decision if not backed into a corner by lackluster Wii U sales. Regardless, here’s hoping for more bold moves by Nintendo in the future.
