Tomonobu Itagaki has finally broken the silence about when fans can expect his upcoming action title Devil’s Third. Unfortunately, it will be quite a while before we’ll be able to get our hands on it. Check out this line from THQ’s fiscal earnings report:
The company announced an agreement with Tomonobu Itagaki’s Valhalla Game Studios(TM) to publish the studio’s premier video game title, Devil’s Third(TM), for the Xbox 360(R) and PlayStation(R)3. The game is currently scheduled for release in THQ’s fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.
While the date does seem discouragingly far away, Itagaki went on the record saying that he expected the game to sell at least “four million copies”.
So I suppose when you’ve made a statement like that about a game, you have to take the extra time to ensure it’s of the utmost quality. Say what you will about his arrogance, the man’s games are brilliant. Let’s hope Devil’s Third is worth the wait.
