Devil’s Third Gets Positive Ratings in Japanese Magazine Review

Devil's Third

Devil’s Third has had a struggling and tough development cycle, but for a while now it seems to be heading into the right direction. Though many had lost hope in the hack-and-slash action game, those who have been following it have been anxiously waiting for some kind of positive feedback.

Although there is still over a week to go in its release to the western market, Devil’s Third has been out in Japan for several days. Japanese magazine Famitsu has been quick in reviewing it in their Issue 1394, and has given it a decent accumulative voted score of 33/40.

Note though, that Famitsu does have a rather unorthodox rating standard, often exaggerating both negative and positive ratings, so it would be advised to take them with a pinch of salt.

In addition to Devil’s Third, the following games were also reviewed this week:

  • Everybody’s Gone to Rapture (PS4) – 7/6/8/7 [28/40]

  • Girls Like Robots (Wii U) – 8/8/8/8 [32/40]

  • Puchikon Magazine: Soukangou (3DS) – 6/7/9/8 [31/40]

  • Rear Pheles: Red of Another (PSV) – 5/6/6/6 [23/40]

  • Rollers of the Realm (PS4) – 6/6/8/6 [26/40]

  • Rollers of the Realm (PSV) – 6/6/8/6 [26/40]

Interestingly, despite getting high ratings from other critics, Everybody’s Gone to Rapture has received a rather underwhelming score. It does seem like Famitsu voters tend to give general preference to hack-and-slash and RPG games.

Hopefully, we’ll see similar (or better) scores from other critics when Devil’s Third is released in the western market on August 28.
