Nintendo Australia today announced that Devil’s Third, a “larger-than-life military thriller”, is set to debut on Wii U this August.
“At the heart of the single-player campaign is Ivan, a former mercenary let loose from his incarceration to right the wrongs of his past and take down a shadowy terrorist group he once belonged to,” Nintendo said of the game.
“With the world’s satellites and electrical weaponry having been wiped out, and warfare once again reduced to close combat between soldiers, Ivan must use a colourful array of weaponry to shoot, hack and bludgeon his way through any foe standing in the way of his attempt at redemption. With fast-paced combat and bone-crunching finishing moves galore, a day in the life of Ivan is anything but ordinary…”
The title also offers a multiplayer mode pitting revolutionaries against terrorists, essentially, offering gamers the chance to form allegiances with other factions or simply go it alone.
Devil’s Third will be available on Wii U from 29 August.
