Itagaki responds to criticism of Devil’s Third


Earlier this week, several outlets who have had access to Devil’s Third posted their initial impressions of the game and none of them were too kind. Many people stated the pacing and the combat felt wooden and stiff instead of responsive, while others said the framerate stutters and technical aspects of the game made it a slog. We highlighted a few of those Devil’s Third first impressions.

The game’s creator, Tomonobu Itagaki has taken to Facebook to defend his game to the media and gamers. Here’s what he posted:

[Dear media guys and gamers]

It seems that the world is in disorder…no way. I feel that the informations on Devil’s Third are tangled.

So I decided to tell you guys about the Specifications and recommended playing devices best suited for Devil’s Third, plus useful infomation for you guys.

I felt the time has come for me to talk about.

[About the specifications of Devil’s Third]

Frame rate: 30fps.
*note: I promise you can fully enjoy this MASSIVE shooter with 30 fps.

Split Screen: This game don’t have split screen feature for both offline and online play. ‘Cuz I used all the power of Wii U for single player. That was tough tradeoff for me. Plz understand.

Voice chat: We don’t equip voice chat feature. ‘Cuz we had maxed out its bandwidth to achieve online play by 16 users.

Yo Guys,

Don’t disappoint, and don’t be negative. I promise the wide/deep/brandnew playability for you guys today [sunglasses emoticon]

[Recommended Playing Devices]

Wii U of course [smile emoticon]
TV set.
PRO contoroller.
USB keyboard.
Wired Internet.

Thanks for your constant support for Devil’s Third.

Let’s make the future together!
