Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo of America has dropped Plans For US Release of Devil's Third

And I notice a lot of people are conveniently ignoring Itagaki himself saying "Dudes, chill the fuck out. Why are you guys so quick to trust some no-name website?"

To be fair, he didn't seem to fully understand the rumor (ie: nothing was absolutely saying Devil's Third wasn't coming to NA), primarily due to the fact that English isn't his first language or one that he seems to be terribly proficient in. Unseen64 isn't no-name either, and Unseen64 Tamaki has proven to be a relatively reliable source of insider information (from my understanding, at least). Even then, the Unseen64 report was right. NoA did drop Devil's Third, and the speculation that a different publisher may pick it up ended up being accurate.

To add on to that, the word of a hopeful dev for a game that is clearly on the road to being critcally panned isn't exactly golden, especially when they don't give further details when things seem to clearly be going downhill. Otherwise, for reasons I stated a few posts up, it still seems like Devil's Third coming to NA isn't a certainty. I predict that we won't hear more about the NA release of the game until a week or two after the European launch where we will either hear a release date, or we'll hear that the game is cancelled for North America, entirely dependent on how the game performs in Europe primarily and Japan secondarily.

Uh, NEITHER of those rumors are confirmed. That's why they're RUMORS. Seriously, if you're so desperate for gossip go pick up a tabloid.

Ok, after having looked this up, Devil's third is only going to come out on the 28th of august in europe. This story of review codes beeing shipped and an embargo date for the 16th of July make no sense at all. Why would review codes be out 2 months before release? And reviews be out a month and a half before release? This rumor has lies written all over it. Theres no way EU outlets have review codes yet and if that isnt true (the whole 2 generation behind graphics was already sounding dubious) then even the NoA "source"can be put in question.

Well, German YouTubers and journalists got an almost finished version of Bayonetta 2 in April last year.

And I've read on ntower.de today that they'll release a preview of Devil's Third's SP campaign in a few days.



But do you know that Devil Third was playable at Japan Expo in Paris ? From what i've heard it fits to what Unseen 64 says



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

Fan fucking tastic

The only Wii U game I was actually excited for. The game was made by Itagaki; at the very least it would have been decent and thats fine. Dynasty Warriors, Onechanbara, Earth Defense Force are all cheesy B/C class games with average to below average production values, but are still entertaining games. Let the consumers decide! How many times are they gonna let this attitude get in the way of their games. There not our fucking parents.

Imagine if reviews/opinions of out of touch old farts effected the release of games. How many gems would we be out?


I'm glad someone else sees DT for what it was truly meant to be.

I think that fact Devil's Third was always meant to be a grindhouse, B-tier type of game went straight over Nintendo's marketing heads.

It's sad to see Nintendo gloriously fail at taking advantage of the opportunity. Even if the game is terrible, it's a sandbox for a lot of ambitious ideas and on paper is more fully-featured as a action/shooter game than anything else on WiiU, including Splatoon . In backing away from the title, they're making themselves look foolish. If the quality suffers this close to release, they have only themselves to blame. They had a practically complete game to work with and many months to polish it when they first rescued the project.

DT will live on in infamy. Every time a mature title is a near-miss for a Nintendo platform, DT will be brought up for discussion.



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

There shouldn't be any difference in US/EU localizations, but I was talking about the long lag from Japanese release to Western release primarily. Why Xenoblade is all the way in December, I'll never know.

I would blame it on Treehouse because translation time seems like the only logical argument, but NoE has to translate to multiple languages and they've had games come out before us. So I have no clue. I'll just blame Reggie.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

i hope they fire some guys if the gae becomes a hit in europe/japan



Didn't realize that I didn't post here.

Just wanted to say that I'm confused, and pretty disappointed that they're not localizing it.

Chill, another publisher will step in and publish the game. So it will come to NA.
