New Devil’s Third Gameplay Walkthrough Pins Down Japanese Release Date

Famed developer Tomonubu Itagaki showed off a decent chunk of new gameplay from his much-anticipated Wii U exclusive Devil’s Third. Early into the video, the game’s release date in Japan is confirmed as August 4, 2015.

If you’re like me, you don’t speak Japanese and a lot of the fine details here are going to completely wash over you, but you’ll be able to piece together some details here and there, and you’ll be able to see some of the prominent characters in a handful of cut scenes. You’ll also see a whole mess of gameplay footage. Devil’s Third looks like it places its focus on mixing precision swordplay with some third-person shooter gunplay; if you’re a fan of Itagaki’s past work like Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive, you’re probably already excited for Devil’s Third, but personally, I’m going to need to see more before I’m convinced it’s anything I actually want to play just yet.
