The redesign of Dante's character is a huge drawback for me. I never owned a PS2 and was so happy to finally play a DMC game on my PS3. And of course I was looking forward to the franchise continuing on the next gen consoles. And now they made a mediocre punk out of my white-haired bishie! >:(
I'll still get the game because I enjoy the fast gameplay, but Dante will never be the same to me again.
That seems a little melodramatic don't you think? You're placing too much emphasis on his appearance; just because he doesn't have the same hairdo anymore shouldn't (and judging by the trailers, won't) alter who he is as a character. Which is to say a wise-cracking, confident overall lovable douchebag.
People's misgivings over how the gameplay will shape up is more than understandable, but still getting peeved over his change in appearance at this point feels unnecessary. Still, ''mediocre punk'' is at least much more restrained than the nonsensical ''emo twilight fag'' generalisations he's been given ;P
