the biggest problem i've seen and heard from the head developers in regards to devil may cry has to be the comment they made, stating "Dante wasn't cool 13 years ago, when the PS2 first came out" When a company developing a game doesn't even know the history behind a system and game then why are they touching it? Devil may cry originally came out in 2001 that's almost 9 years ago, and the PS2 came out in 2000 just barely 10 years ago. So where did the extra years come from? If they can make a good game i don't care about what the character looks like, but if they are picking up a franchise that is already in place and have no idea what they are doing then please leave it alone. This would be like someone taking resident evil saying it came out 25 years ago and the remake they are doing will have you hunting bears, lions and tigers, while not having anything to do with zombies. I'm sure just about anyone can take a franchise that is in place and if done right re-invent that franchise, but I don't have much hope with ninja theory they made heavenly sword which had a boring story and the gameplay was pretty weak, and enslaved looks like they took someone else's story and have the same gameplay from heavenly sword. So i'll wait for this game to come out, so i can try it out and see what they do with it, but from the picture i've seen of ninja theory's co-founder the character design for dante is just tameem antoniades.
