With the Wii U eShop about to shut in 2 weeks, I made a decision to select up one of many Wii U’s most forgettable and actually hardest to search out Nintendo-published video games. Devils Third shouldn’t be an excellent recreation and it by no means was. I performed it years in the past and thought it was a reasonably common and corny expertise. It nonetheless is! I simply needed to choose up a digital copy in order that I might re-expereince such a bizarre Wii U unique.
