From E3 this year we have found out a lot about new games but their is one game I hve forgotten to mention that might bring some adult support to the Wii U. Following the digital event yesterday Nintendo announced a whole host of new games and while third party developers have just about fled the site of the Wii U there has been one game announced for the Wii U that is actually an exclusive. This game is Devils Third, this is a first person shooter, third person hack and slash game and it looks as interesting for the adult audience as it looks strange. Thus certainly does not seem like a game for Nintendo platforms and it has been explained in an interview with the games creator Tomonobu Itagaki and you can find it below:
“We developed the game up to an early playable version at THQ but then there was the unfortunate end of that company. Then, when we went looking for partners and found Nintendo who really supported my vision. I’m not really sure if it would have been possible ten years ago to be honest, but I’ve had a long relationship with Nintendo going back to the Nintendo and Super Nintendo. Once I went independent, I definitely went over to Nintendo to say hello.”
“I like to think of myself as a warrior. There will always be accidents on the battlefield. You have to find ways through those and adapt. The world has been through financial crises in the past few years yet we’ve all found ways to continue on. One thing that’s different from my previous company is my relationship to the people I’m working with. Previously I wasn’t necessarily responsible for hiring and taking care of everyone, but my position is different now and I feel a lot of responsibility for my team.”
“I’m not one to go looking for fights in back alleys. I prefer to find them in a big avenue. That’s why I tried to pick the most major genre I could think of, the modern shooter. That’s what led me to make Devil’s Third.”
“When people play this game I want them to think, ‘What does it mean to live?’ I want them to think about life itself. What does it mean to be alive? What does someone believe in a world like this? We’re all citizens in a very fragile world order, as if it’s made of a glass, that can shatter at any moment.”
I am severely hoping that this game brings some deserved support for the Wii U and adheres to the adult audience, I don’t really know what to think of this game but I think the vast majority of adults might actually be attracted to this.
