Tomonobu Itagaki, designer of Valhalla Game Studios’ upcoming title Devil’s Third shared an update on his facebook account yesterday regarding the state of the game.
Apparently, Itagaki had been away from Facebook for a while because he was busy working on the game and assures fans that the final product is coming along nicely.
In response to fans sending him concerned messages, he assured them everything was alright, but it will be totally natural of him to be inactive on Facebook in the future as well due to work schedule for Devil’s Third.
Devil’s Third is a third-person shooter involving melee action being developed by Valhalla Game Studios, which was created by Itagaki himself along with members who left Tecmo, for Xbox 360 and PS3.
The game is Itagaki’s first title since he left Tecmo back in 2008 and is different from his previous hack & slash and fighting games such as Dead or Alive.
Devil’s Third’s backstory revolves around the Kessler syndrome theory. Debris from satellites orbiting the Earth leads to the destruction of all military and civilian satellites. This results in constant conflicts among military powers throughout the planet.
The game is scheduled to be released in 2014 and is being built on the same engine used by Darksiders 2.
