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.
