Devil's Third creator promises highest-budget production yet

Renowned videogame creator Tomonobu Itagaki has revealed that his newest game, Devil's Third, will be by far the largest-scale production he has ever taken on.

Speaking to Game Informer, the games designer - who is legendary for his role in creating the Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden franchises - said the budget of Devil's Third is bigger than any game he has ever made, despite his CV including more than 30 titles.

"If you put a little bit more money into the one I'm making now ... I could make all of the 30 games I made before," he explained.

Devil's Third is an ambitious Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game set in a future world that has been wracked by a global catastrophe, with Itagaki's brand of dynamic action set to be present and correct.

Developed for THQ by the designer's new team at Valhalla Game Studios, the title will combine ranged combat with high-speed melee brawls, while also delivering stunning visuals and online modes.

Itagaki added that it remains too early to share any further details on the secretive project, but assured fans that it is still on track to meet its planned 2013 release date.
