Briefly: After a little confusion over who's publishing the game, it's been announced that Devil's Third — the next game from Tomonobu Itagaki — will be coming to the West in Q4 2015. Valhalla will be publishing the PC version of the game themselves (which will be free-to-play), while Nintendo will be bringing it to the Wii U.

While it seems somewhat unclear as to who is publishing Ninja Gaiden creator Tomonobu Itagaki's latest game, Devil's Third in the West, the game will definitely be out in Japan next month. Thank goodness.
Devil's Third, was announced as a Wii U exclusive at E3 this year. A bit of a surprise considering the game was originally slated for release on the PS3 and Xbox 360. So why the change in platforms? And what's the game about?
It's been nearly three years since Devil's Third was announced. From Tomonobu Itagaki, creator of Ninja Gaiden and Jiggly Ninja Girls Galore -— I mean —- Dead or Alive, and his studio, Valhalla Game Studios, the apparently hyper-violent action shooter has had a rocky time getting made. So where is it now?
The creative force previously behind Tecmo's Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive series, now on the upcoming Devil's Third, Tomonobu Itagaki, says he has wanted to make games since he was a teenager. He just didn't want to make video games.
Tomonobu Itagaki, the man formerly behind Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive games, did not bring his latest creation, Devil's Third, to E3 2011. He promises it will be at Tokyo Game Show, however, and wants to bring death by dildo to yet another THQ-published game.
Until 2008, the head ninja of Team Ninja (not pictured) was Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki. Then he left and filed a lawsuit over unpaid wages. More Tecmo developers left, too. What's that like for the other ninjas?
