Devil's Third to Be Exclusive Title on Wii U

Valhalla Game Studios' Devil's Third has emerged from the wilderness as a Wii U exclsuive.

According to Joystiq, which gleaned the information from an IGN livestream, the one-time multiplatform title will ultimately be released on Nintendo's console after more than two years of uncertainty.

Itagaki broke the news during an IGN E3 stream, though the developer most famous for the gravity-defying Dead or Alive franchise offered no further information on what we can expect from the Wii U game. Nintendo "really understood my vision," Itagaki stated, "so I felt I really had to work with them."

Devil's Third was one of the casualties of the long, slow decline of THQ during 2012, leaving the game without a publisher in the middle of development. THQ then returned the rights to the franchise to Itagaki and Valhalla.

In the following July, Valhalla announced its intentions to release Devil's Third on "digital devices" in addition to consoles, before revealing a partnership with the Korean company Doobic to launch on PC and tablets.

Evidently, that deal no longer stands, and Valhalla Rising has become one of many titles - and no doubt the bloodiest - on Nintendo's growing Wii U release schedule.
 
Nintendo also announced other platform games that will be arriving later this year or sometime in 2015 with Reggie Fils-Aime showed the inclusion of Mii fighters in Super Smash Bros. (which is also coming to 3DS on October 3), and he then unveiled Nintendo's version of Skylanders-like toys called amiibo. The figurines use similar technology and will enhance the experience in many upcoming video games, he said, starting with Super Smash Bros.

"Nintendo has always represented a unique source of video game entertainment for the widest range of gamers," said Fils-Aime. "We create timeless games with twists and turns that provide hours of enjoyment for fans of all ages, and this year with the introduction of amiibo, we're pushing the creative envelope forward in compelling new ways."

Nintendo made two other important announcements. One was for the previously rumored Mario Maker, which is now confirmed and offers players a chance to use the Wii U GamePad to design levels from scratch. The game is slated for the first half of 2015. The other big reveal was for a new IP called Splatoon, which is a four-on-four multiplayer title where players of each team spray ink on the ground around them while blotting out the opposing team members.
