Devil’s Third was easily one of the biggest surprises for Wii U owners at E3 looking for a more over-the-top and mature experience. A unique blend of Third-Person slashing (Ninja Gaiden) and First-Person shooting, Devil’s Third has potential to be a real killer app in both terms of single player and online multiplayer experiences that Wii U owners can tout to their friends with other consoles.

In a recent interview, Itagaki shared his feelings on how he felt the game will do in terms of finding a market on the Wii U, which isn’t flooded with games like this like other systems:

“I’m not concerned. Looking through my Facebook already I’ve seen a lot of comments that say, ‘I’m going to buy a Wii U just for this.’ I feel that ultimately gamers are the ones who make the future. I remember back when I took Dead Or Alive to the Xbox instead of the PlayStation – there was a certain Newsweek reporter who said, ‘Sony got steak and Xbox got hambuger.’ But what ended up happening is fans of my game came to the platform and it succeeded in the end. I wonder if looking back that reporter would still say the same thing now and if he’d be embarrassed about having written that article.”

Devil’s Third has no firm release date yet, but hopefully we will find one out soon.
