Devil's Third, an upcoming Wii U exclusive action title from Ninja Gaiden creator Tomonobu Itagaki, has received criticism in preview coverage from Videogamer among others, who criticises the game for its low framerate and unintuitive controls.

Now, Itagaki has commented on the previews on Facebook, by stating that the negative reception is caused by poor player skill:

At last, I was be able to understand about the reactions.
Devil's Third is the game which reflects the player's skill directly/vividly.
This is truth."

In another Facebook post, Itagaki outlines why the Wii U GamePad might not be the optimal choice for his upcoming game:

"I never wanna discount standard tab-controller.

But, Devil's Third is a super speady [sic] game. So Tab-controler has following disadvantages.

1. Four face buttons are positioned overcrowding. So you easily press the wrong button. In that case, you will die.

2. Distance of two analog sticks, are too far apart. So it's quite difficult for u to feel/grasp the battlefield.

3. Devil's Third is a game you play a long time. The standard Tab-controler is too heavy for such use.

Devil's Third is out on August 28th.
