    Itagaki, the mad genius behind Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive, is proving that there is life after divorce. In advance of E3 proper, Itagaki has announced and revealed his new game, Devil's Third, which is currently in development at his fresh studio, Valhalla Studios. It will be, of course, published by not-Tecmo.

    Judging from the footage of the game released recently, Devil's Third appears to be a third-person shooter first and a beat-'em-up second. This would be accurate, according to Itagaki. "If you think of it as a shooting game that includes a level of melee combat and fighting that has never been done in a shooting game before," he told Eurogamer in an advanced conversation, "that's a good way to think of it." 

    No Caption Provided
    == TEASER ==That seems like an odd combat design direction for the guy behind Ninja Gaiden, a game that featured brain-numbing hack-and-slash combinations. The fact that it is different is the reason Itagaki decided to go guns-first. He told Eurogamer later that he didn't want consumers to confuse it with a Ninja Gaiden- or Devil May Cry-type of experience. Silly consumers.
      
       
    Devil's Third is set in a post-apocalyptic universe where dudes have a lot more blood in their bodies than we do. The game is clearly over-the-top; air juggles make enemies appear as if they're meat-sprinklers, while the on-the-ground stuff is just as nasty, if not moreso. Big guns of the Gatling variety are confirmed, as well as fast-paced combat, acrobatics, and fluid hand-to-gun fisticuffs. Man. Call me silly, but I think I want this already even though Itagaki has never made my cup of tea.

    THQ is set to publish the title on the Xbox 360 and PS3. No release date was announced, but the media have been told not to expect this one within (roughly) the next two years. Bummer!

    Not sure if i'm fan of the setting or style but the idea of fast past third-person gunplay mixed with a decent enough melee system could be pretty awesome & itagaki has yet to dissapoint as far i'm concerned.

    Fuck everyone this game looks sick as fuck.
     
    Could use a better name, though. Something that catches the eye.
     
    Like NINJA EXPLOSION or something.

    Devil's Third? More like Devil's Turd! Amirite? Yeah, it's super obvious. I wonder how many more times it will be said in these comments. Take a drink for every one you notice!

    It looks pretty cool, just hoping it's not going to turn out like WET, because that is what this game is looking like. Looking at the gameplay this game would have some exciting multiplayer.

    It sure looks like an Itakagi Game and that's a good thing in my book.

    I don't think that'll happen because NG2 was never supposed to be released on the PS3 in the first place and Itagaki was heavily against the idea of a PS3 port; but when he left they decided to do it anyways.  Devil's Third has been announced for both platforms out of the getgo, so pulling an exclusivity deal at this point would be a damn bold move I don't think a publisher like THQ would pull.

    I am worried to be honest. The concept sounds awesome but games that focus on blending this idea between melee and shooting generally seem slightly flawed for one reason or another. I wish them luck, but I think Valhalla have a real task in front of them.

    It looks like it could be one of my favorite games I'll play this year (assuming it comes out this year), or it could be a huge disappointment.  I loved NG:B and NG2 VERY much.  Definitely my favorite action games of all time.  I'm just worrisome that this being a shooter it won't turn out as well.  The shooting has to have a lot of precision and has to feel right for me to enjoy a shooter at all.

    The animations look awesome.
     
    The art design, not so much.
