Nintendo has confirmed the Japanese and European release dates for Wii U exclusive, Devil’s Third, the new action/adventure, hack-and-slash game from Tomonobu Itagaki.

Itagaki himself features prominently in the latest trailer, which you can view below. Despite the trailer being in Japanese, there’s plenty of gameplay to whet your appetite, starting around the 1:40 mark, and it goes for almost the rest of the 10-minute video.

In Devil’s Third, you’ll play as Ivan, a tattooed hero who fights with his fists and weapons in a semi-post apocalyptic world reeling in the loss of all satellite communications. Online multiplayer and level editor will also be included.

Devil’s Third will be released exclusively for Wii U in Japan on August 4, and in Europe on August 28. We’ll be sure to let you know when a US release date has been announced.

In the meantime, check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts on this game in the comments section.
