THQ has released an ultra hard teaser video for Devil’s Third, the next game from Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki. The mock documentary follows Japanese television comedian Masaki Sumitani, who’s playing Hard Gay, his most popular character. If you’ve never seen the comedic styling of mister Hard Gay in action, prepare yourself. You may find the strange teaser to be hilarious, bewildering, offensive, or all of the above.
The Devil’s Third video follows the usual format for skits featuring Hard Gay, who often takes viewers on tours through interesting places and businesses and engages random passersby on the streets for interviews. Sumitani has received criticism for his over-the-top portrayal of gay men.

According to the teaser, Devil’s Third won’t be playable until this year’s Tokyo Game Show in September. But GamesRadar will be meeting with the folks from THQ at E3 next week, where we might just have do a little hard gay investigating of our own.
