Itagaki Finally Explains what Devil’s Third really is
Dead or Alive creator Tomonuobu Itagaki has a new game on the way, and after many years of silence we finally know what it is.
Since the game had not had a formal reveal before THQ let it go, we haven’t known a thing about it. In a Famitsu article translated by Kotaku, Itagaki finally spilled the beans on what exactly Devil’s Third is.
A third-person action game with both hack-and-slash melee and shooter gameplay, Devil’s Third is set in North America and has players battling for survival.
Itagaki said the project hasn’t changed at all since conception, although he’s been building the lore over the past two years. The story involves the destruction of electronic technology by an EMP, while a former Soviet force works to trigger revolutions across the globe.
“At first, you start from the position of a citizen, and all you have as weapons are metal pipes and normal guns,” Itagaki said.
“Insurgencies are happening everywhere, so you can try the road of the lone mercenary, or you can find allies and build up your own vigilante group or armed organization – clans or guilds, you could call them.
“So it’s a massive shooter where tens of thousands of people play trying to control the North American land.”
