Itagaki Takes to Facebook Again to Give Another Update on Devil’s Third

We’ve been covering Devil’s Third extensively since its first major reveal back at E3 2014. As the famed Tomonobu Itagaki’s next game, we have been anxiously awaiting it as well, as the man best known for his work on Ninja Gaiden has a pretty decent track-record when it comes to producing solid action titles. Still, updates on Devil’s Third have been few and far between since June of last year; thus, when a new one is released, we report on it.

In a Facebook post yesterday, Itagaki addressed more details on the upcoming Wii U shooter, stating that it is the largest project he has ever worked on, and that it’s more than just another shooter. Below is the full post:

Hey gamers gathering here.
I know you guys are craving for the latest information on Devil’s Third. Devil’s Third isn’t a simple shooter, but an unprecedented massive shooter to be played by tons of players. So there’s many things to set before we release it. The game contains a lot of elements well over the volume to be provided by two regular games.
This game will be the biggest game of life for me and my colleagues, including you guys, not to mention.
It took two years for the concept working and four years for the development. It’s not surprising at all. Such amount of time is needed to create a totally new game from scratch. I’m sure you’ll dig what I mean if I say we spent four years to develop Ninja Gaiden.
But, I know your mind. Such development matters have nothing to do with gamers. So I and all the members of Valhalla really appreciate that you guys have waited for Devil’s Third for a long time.
What Devil’s Third is?
Such announcement will be made over time. Thanks for your patiense. Devil’s Third will meet you guys’ expectation for sure!
Thanks again from the bottom of my heart.
