Devil's Third coming to "wide range of digital devices"

Valhalla plans to turn Devil's Third into a multimedia franchise

Devil's Third, the first title for Ninja Gaiden creator Tomonobu Itagaki's Valhalla Game Studios, will coming to more than just PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The rights to the title have been returned to Valhalla by THQ, who previously funding the game, and Valhalla has decided to expand what's being done with the IP. In a statement about the rights, Valhalla Game Studios CEO Satoshi Kanematsu said that game would be coming to more than the originally-planned platforms.

"Valhalla Game Studios would like to announce that after negotiations with THQ Inc., and with their generous cooperation, both parties have reached an agreement whereupon all rights related to the Devil's Third project, including development and distribution rights, have been transferred in full from THQ to Valhalla Game Studios," said the statement.

"In addition to the home console and PC versions, we at Valhalla Game Studios intend to bring the Devil's Third universe to a wide range of digital devices. We are also looking beyond the boundaries of video games and plan to work with other various forms of media, including manga, novels, animation and film, to create a blockbuster franchise."

That's a lot of hope for a game that hasn't been released yet, with no concrete release date in sight.

YAY! Devils Third Social... Now we can play on facebook and also Android and iOS versions with innovative touch screen controls so you can feel the blood on your hands.

Seriously... i just hope they dont release a half assed game on multiple platforms to just make money. Its great that they want to make money on other types of products, i just hope the core game is a quality AAA game expirience. really tired of games being toned down or having production assets cut down in order to appeal to a wider audience. If you wanna make a game for a wider audience, you make games like pokemon.

I enjoyed the devils third trailer, i hope they keep it that way and dont jerk it down for kids and girls. Or tone down the grafics, so you can stream the game over internet through one of these cloud gaming services. cloud gaming seems to be the big thing now, just as with social gaming 5 years ago.
