Devil’s Third destined for the Wii’s successor?

Tomonobu Itagaki, the former head of Team Ninja, was interviewed about an upcoming Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 game of his, Devil’s Third, during the Tokyo Game Show. He spoke about how the game’s technology was scalable and easily adaptable to other platforms, facilitating the bringing of the game “to as yet unknown hardware as well.” Asked if he was hinting at the game coming to the PlayStation Portable’s successor or the Nintendo 3DS, he had this to say:

More than that, although I can’t say this easily because I don’t have any information, it’s possible that Nintendo could release a higher end console. Something like that.

He doesn’t appear to be aware of any details about Nintendo’s next home console, but it’s possible that Itagaki may have some relations with Nintendo. Perhaps he will be given a developer’s kit as soon as it becomes available. However, Nintendo also has a track record of having sworn their third-party developers to secrecy, requesting them to deny having any insider knowledge, even if confronted directly about it. Either way is possible, since there is no evidence to prove it either way.

Now, you may be wondering what exactly this Devil’s Third is all about, anyway. Details are still a little sparse, but the game was first announced just before E3. According to its creator, it will be a bloody shooter that will give the player “a more direct feeling of killing your opponents,” using a combination of gunplay and carefully crafted melee combat to achieve this. It’s the first project of Valhalla Game Studios, the studio Itagaki formed after leaving Team Ninja.
