Now that I have your attention, it had better be great with a development cycle this lengthy. Even though Devil’s Third was revealed early last year and developer Tomonobu Itagaki made it clear that a 2011 release window was out of the question, news comes today that even 2012 is too soon to expect Valhalla Studios’ debut game. The words are from the horses mouth; or Itagaki himself.
It should also be noted that while the game play of the title is nearly finished, the complete game is only about 25% finished. Furthermore, Itagaki and co. are interested in the possibility of bringing Devil’s Third to the Wii U, Nintendo’s newly revealed home console. Both involved parties could benefit greatly from such an arrangement. All I can say about that release window is, I certainly hope Devil’s Third is worth waiting four years for.
