Valhalla Studios' beinharde actionspill Devil's Third hadde ingen enkel start. Kritikerne slaktet spillet og spillskaperen (Tomonobu Itagaki) slaktet kritikerne, men hvordan har det egentlig gått med Wii U-spillet? Svaret er nok at det ikke har gått spesielt bra, for denne uken kunne Nintendo of America fortelle at de har stengt onlinefunksjonen i spillet for godt. Her er annonseringen:
