Ok, so after reading more into this I didn't realize until now that the actual reason Nintendo doesn't want to publish it is because they thought it was an awful game? Lol, to be fair you can't blame them though, if something's going to be terrible they probably won't want their name on it or for it to be considered a "nintendo game" or something.

Kind of makes the whole point of them getting it as an exclusive pointless though lol.


Weird considering they funded it and likely helped develop it because of the funding. Kind of like Bayo 2. Seems like they screwed up if they see it as not being a good investment don't ya think?



Gotta figure out how to set these up lol.

Seems to be a pretty hot button thread but i'd like to ask everyone to calm down a bit and remember that forum rules still apply, if you want to vent then vent but try not to break the rules.



I was actually looking forward to this game since the newest Call of Duty game, once again, was skipping the Wii U. I do own a PS3 and so I can still hold out on upgrading to a PS4 or Xbox One for now.

I imagine someone else might still publish the game. Itagaki will do it personally. It is his will!

Yeah. I feel bad for them honestly, lol. They spent money on helping finishing development of the game and gaining another exclusive just to not want anything to do with it in the end because it's apparently not a good game. Waste of time and money in the end lol.

If that's true it is, but it's still their own fault. If they give money and become producers, they are directly responsible for it's production. If it sucks, that's on them.

Oh wow. This game will bomb even worse then, though I guess this is a rumor so will wait and see..

Actually it wouldn't really be their fault though. Nintendo themselves did not create the game or develop it, they simply saw that Valhalla wanted to finish it and paid the money to help them finish it and in return gain an exclusive. It's the same situation as Bayonetta 2, Bayonetta 2 recieved critical acclaim but it's not because of Nintendo publishing it that made it be acclaimed, but because of how great of a job Platinum Games did developing it.

It's probably why Nintendo wants to distance themselves from Devil's Third, people might look at it and think it's a game developed by Nintendo when it's not.

Even if Nintendo had nothing to do with development, which is unlikely since much as been said about their involvement with development. As a producer you over see every aspect of a game. If they didn't see it going awry, it is completely their failing. Nintendo has produced it, they gave money for the project, their name is on it now. It is their duty to ensure it's a quality title. 

Nintendo wanting to distance themselves from Devil's Third only makes them look like idiots since they funded it and every other part of Nintendo except NoA has brought it to market. Nintendo doesn't want to distance themselves from it, only NoA.
