The hack-slash game announced as a Wii U exclusive has a new teaser for its excited fans. A new trailer for "Devil's Third" was released for E3 2014 and the release date, though still vague, is still set for next year. As the anticipated debut nears, fans cannot help but clamor for more news about the upcoming game. So if you are one of them, here are the latest news and spoilers about the upcoming "Devil's Third" game.

"Devil's Third," underway since 2008, was unveiled last year and given the 2015 release date. Fans may want a specific premiere date but the game developers and publishers kept it just as that. Luckily though, there have been no news of debut delay yet as the Valhalla Games Studious is reportedly in a "continuing production process."

The upcoming game is dubbed as a not so ordinary first-person shooter video game as it involves a lot of hack-and-slash strategies. In terms of its storyline, "Devil's Third" is based on a Kessler syndrome theory. This principle is about the chaos brought by the collision of debris from the outer space. Players will be involved in an unrest and war as "the balance of power is tilted" because of the destruction done by the fallen debris.

Game designer Tomonobu Itagaki also announced the protagonist in the upcoming game is named Ivan. "Devil's Third" players will be exploring the entire hack-and-slash game with the male lead character from America to Europe and even Asia.

"His name's Ivan, and he's the protagonist of the game," the Japanese game designer said. Itagaki also said Ivan will be their way of showing to the world the "Valhalla spirit" as influenced by Nintendo's Yamagami. The lead character for the "Devil's Third will" also be their own "take on ninja" which has been known as Japanese warriors.

It can also be recalled that "Devil's Third" is originally planned for release on PS3 and Xbox 360, until the game developers announced it will be made exclusively for the Wii U. Itagaki also said that the reason behind the change of platform is because no one love games like Nintendo does.

"It's because [Nintendo] loves games more than anybody. It's because they love play," Valhalla Game Studios head said. "That's why [Valhalla Game Studios] went our own way in the first place - so that we could create in an environment where the first thing we could do whenever we decide anything is ask ourselves, 'what is a game?," he added.

ValhallaGame Studious head designer also expresses his commendation for the Japanese game developer and publisher. "Nintendo isn't about being a certain way 'because it's Nintendo.' It's about 'What is a game? What is play?' and for the past few years, all we've discussed is what players are looking for," he said.
