Devil's Third is headed to PCs and tablets via a partnership between developer Valhalla Game Studios and Doobic.
Devil's Third, the third-person shooter from producer Tomonobu Itagaki, is headed to PCs and tablets via a partnership between developer Valhalla Game Studios and Doobic, according to a statement today from Valhalla CEO Satoshi Kanematsu.
Doobic, a Korean developer of online PC shooters, will partner with Valhala to form a joint venture corporation called Valhalla&Doobic Co., Ltd. The joint venture corporation will allow the companies to share technology and development.
"We would also like to announce our decision to contract the development of the PC and tablet versions of Devil's Third to Valhalla&Doobic Co., Ltd.," Kanematsu said.
Earlier this month, original publisher THQ transferred all Devil's Third IP rights to Valhalla. Kanematsu later released a statement saying that "we at Valhalla Game Studios intend to bring the Devil's Third universe to a wide range of digital devices."
Itagaki, famous for his involvement with the Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive franchises, has been developing Devil's Third since 2009. Though a release date has not been announced, Itagaki has said that development "is in its final stage." In addition to PCs and tablets, Devil's Third will also be released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
