Devil's Third gets European release date

New trailer lands for Wii U exclusive title.

Nintendo has confirmed the European release date for Devil's Third, revealing that Tomonobu Itagaki's next game will be heading to Wii U on August 28. Here's some details from the official press release:

At the heart of the single-player campaign is Ivan, a former mercenary let loose from his incarceration to right the wrongs of his past and take down a shadowy terrorist group he once belonged to. With the world's satellites and electrical weaponry having been wiped out, and warfare once again reduced to close combat between soldiers, Ivan must use a colourful array of weaponry to shoot, hack and bludgeon his way through any foe standing in the way of his attempt at redemption. With fast-paced combat and bone-crunching finishing moves galore, a day in the life of Ivan is anything but ordinary...

The game's online multiplayer mode, meanwhile, offers up a grim future whereby the terrorists have won, and chaos reigns supreme. As an ordinary citizen, you can join a clan and help reclaim the United States by forming allegiances with other factions, or go all-out as a mercenary and endlessly assault other player's bases, opting for anarchy over clan diplomacy! But at the heart of the online play is the ability to customise your base alongside other members of your clan, with successful battling resulting in rewards that can be used to improve your defences. With constant assaults from other clans, you'll have to be on your toes to defend your territory.

The Wii U-exclusive from Valhalla Studios is set to launch in Japan on August 4. While we European's have been given a new teaser, the Japanese trailer (which shows of single and multiplayer gameplay) can also be seen below. You can even check out the boxart if you are so inclined.

"The thing is that Devil's Third has a certain charm if you decide to cut it some slack (a lot of slack, to be honest)."
