While little concrete information was given, Itagaki hopes to have unique multiplayer elements in his new action/shooter game not found anywhere else. Itagaki also mentioned continued support for Devil’s Third’s online play.
At E3, Nintendo and Valhalla Game Studios revealed that Devil’s Third will boast 16-player multiplayer matches that take place between 13 different North American based maps. The game will have ten different multiplayer modes. Clan integration was promised, as were unlockable gear and a leveling system.
Devil’s Third is a Wii U exclusive and currently has no release date.
Well, we all hope our projects are unique and special, but hoping and doing are quite different. I like what I’ve seen about Devil’s Third, but the few details about the game’s multiplayer we do have don’t say much. 16-players isn’t new, and neither are clans or unlockable gear. Right now, the game looks like a high budget version of Gunz: The Duel, which isn’t a bad thing, but I do hope the game becomes more than that.
