We've all heard how Nintendo is "kid friendly" and will turn Bayonetta 2 into a child friendly game. The notion that Nintendo is, somehow, incapable of publishing a Mature rated game is utter nonsense. This trailer continues to prove that.
Devil's Third, developed by Valhalla Game Studios, was originally going to be published by THQ, but the publisher's closure allowed for Nintendo to pick up the title and place it onto the Wii U. I just can't hate this trailer. It looks like Valhalla Game Studios plucked up an 80s action film and decided to make a video game out of it. The story is supposed to be about how the destruction of all the world's satellites causes a world war, but, let's face it, the plot isn't important. I mean, come on, the first action scene shown is the shirtless protagonist fighting cyber-ninjas with a katana. The only thing that would make this trailer perfect is if Vin Diesel was voicing the main character.
I'm certain the game will be average, at best, upon release. There has been a recent surge in mediocre, third-person action games and the small glimpses of gameplay shown here really does nothing to disprove those concerns. Cover shooting with third-person hack-n-slash just doesn't seem like a good mix. I can still enjoy the hell out of this trailer though. Devil's Third is expected to release sometime this year for the Wii U.
