After the Japanese release date for Tomonobu Itagaki’s new game Devil’s Third was revealed yesterday, Nintendo UK have now confirmed that it will launch in the UK on the 28th August exclusively on the Wii U. Sweet. It’s a surprise it was revealed now rather than at E3, but that seems to be the trend this year.

Devil’s Third is set in a a hack and slash game set in a world suffering with the loss of all satellites, leading to war around the world as the balance of military power is thrown into chaos. Itagaki has a good track record in this genre with his Ninja Gaiden releases so hopefully this will live up to that standard.
