I thought this was going to be about Limbo the game and DMC together, c'mon

Posted by Tan

Wait what.

Posted by Gazaar

As a pretty huge fan of the series I can say I don't mind where they seem to be going with the design. More Western, less anime fiesta with white haired people everywhere.

Posted by Morningstar

Curious about this one.

Posted by Drakoji

Sexual Deviant? Really?

Come on.

Posted by Dustpan

Looks interesting.

Posted by klimdeeni

dont know how I feel about a dante without white hair... he's just some dude... but hack and slash is always fun with gun play thrown in so let's just see how this turns out

Posted by FlamingHobo

Interesting trailer. Think I'll need to get my hands on a demo of somekind before I decide how I feel about this.

Posted by EastboundSpider

Anime.

HEH.

My thoughts exactly... Is that shit really needed. Ughhh

This also looks boring.

At least hey changed his hairstyle from that first concept?

Still not a fan of the way this game looks, though. As I said in another thread, this looks like they're trying to turn Devil May Cry into a Tim Burtom weird-for-the-sake-of-weird fever dream. Regardless of the changes made to the actual gameplay, the changes made to the character of Dante and the general aesthetic take things too far from what Devil May Cry was. They might as well just change both the game's name as well as Dante's and claim it's something completely different at this point, because that's the vibe I'm getting.

In short: No, sir, I don't like it.

Garbage. Call it something else.

It looks pretty interesting. So long as it has hardcore music for the main score I'm in.

Posted by oliveshark

Hey, sure. It's been long enough since I cringed my way less than half of DMC 4. Please be good.

I hope that they cut out the "getting dressed while flying through a trailer" bit. While kind of cool, it just seems excessive to me. I will say that the combat looks really fluid and I'm interested in this. Also, I don't know if it's just because I've seen it so often or they changed something, but Dante's character design looks a lot better than when it was first shown.

Posted by t0y

this game looks like utter trash.

Posted by Drakoji

@Hailinel: I'm with you on that, if they didn't name this game DMC, I would be a little bit less septic about it.

I liked the level design of the fair to be honest, the setting seems interesting, it's just what they are doing to the concept of what Dante must be that feels wrong to me.

Posted by TheHT

Still looks cool.

Whoa! Okay, color me interested. I picked up DMC4 and did not care for it at all but this actually looks like an interesting title.

Posted by mbr2

Too bad I don't buy my clothes at Hot Topic or I might've liked this kind of game. Also, nice Naked Gun homage.

It looks kind of cool, but I still don't fully understand the character redesign. What exactly was wrong with the old Dante? Is brown hair supposed to connect me to the character more? I'm not really against it, I just don't understand the reasoning behind it.

Posted by Ett

Thought #1 I love me some Ninja theory.

Thought #2 Lets see how Capcom fucks this up.

Posted by yakityyakblah

@Emeryl: Have you played a DMC game before? Excessive is the point.

Posted by PassiveKaerenai

So what, Dante's a male model now? Will Lacoste bring out a DMC fragrance?

Posted by Kyle

This looks cool, fuck the haters. I'm interested to see more.

Posted by Aronleon

Well at least from what I gather this game has nothing to do with the others, still have no interest to play it there is just something I don't like about it.

Posted by SagaciousJones

Familiar mechanics if you played Heavenly Sword, maybe.

Posted by rebgav

I can't wait to fight up to two enemies at once, just like in this trailer.

I'm pretty sure the Bill O'Riley-esque talking head isn't saying anything actually true about Dante, otherwise he'd also be a terrorist.

Posted by IAmNotBatman

Looks interesting, I'm in.

Posted by Drakoji

@TheSouthernDandy:

Oh I know, but I mean, is that really going to be a plotpoint? That the media questions the sexuality of Dante? I don't really want to play a game around that.

Posted by Soulblitz

Still looks like Devil May Cry.

Edited by Quantical

I've never played any of the DMC games and I won't be playing this one. Nice trailer though.

Bitch.

the reason the character changed is because they have completely rebooted the series and starting from scratch so this is Ninja theory's design for Dante it's as if the old DMC games didn't exist so why would you have the old character design for a reboot that makes no sense, this this the problem the fans of the previous DMC games cant get into their heads or just don't want to except.

...Why WOULDN'T you use the old character design? How does any of what you said make any more sense? What the hell defines a reboot, anyway? Completely redesigning everything? Retconning everything? Making a completely different series while riding on the name of the old one?

Don't get me wrong, I don't give a shit either way as DMC means nothing to me, but your post was just silly.

Not really. A reboot is making a fresh start in an old universe. So keeping the exact same character isn't much of a reboot, it'd just be stuck in some weird half sequel limbo that wouldn't make much sense from a cannon point of view.

Posted by DeadPan

Looks......ok. As a huge DMC fan il play it, but the HD collection is more worth your time

Posted by EndlessLotus

Still weird, but they're moving in the right direction now....

Posted by coribald

This looks...realllllly bad. Like. Really really bad.

Posted by RustyMagus

Having been one of the biggest naysayers to this reboot, I'll have to admit this does look pretty good. The graphical style is a definite keep, and the combat looks about as fast and free flowing as DMC has been in the past. Having said that, the new Dante still has that "let's make him cool and edgy" design by committee feel to him, without any irony to him. Which makes him seem a bit... lame.

Edited by crimsonlordofwar

@Drakoji: -_-.....last time I checked sexual deviant means any deviation from the norms of what is considered normal sexual behavior. Meaning that it can range anywhere from pedophilia, Necrophilia, cross-dressing, domination, even getting off to watching someone undressing, and of course Homosexuality.

Anything that is considered abnormal in sex is considered a sexual deviation(like a Ménage à trois).....it can be simple or server. Not sure where this notion that it immediately means sexual orientation came from....and its not just you.

Posted by Redhotchilimist

Really liked how he changed clothes while flying through the air. That looks pretty much like what Shimomura was doing with the cinematics in DMC 3, 4 and Bayonetta in terms of stupid great action. I sort of wish they went the other way, though. If they aren't gonna top the insanity in Bayonetta, I feel like going down to earth would be more fitting.

This seems like little step forward, anyway. DMC4 felt so similar to past games I felt like it was a generation behind.

Good to see that Drewbie is getting work these days.

Some guy doesn't know what 'reboot' means.

Posted by HerbieBug

Nevermind my own opinions on the direction they have gone with the design, I'd like to ask:
 
Who is this for?  What demographic do they hope to target by this change?  Is this just difference for the sake of difference?  All I'm seeing here is a conscious effort to make an recognizable character less so.  Ideally if you're going to do an alternate reality style reimagining of an IP, there should be clear reasons for the new direction.   I don't see anything here beyond a marketing team telling design to "make it look different". 

Posted by Maitimo

So much for doing their own thing - between this and the gameplay videos, it's quite clear they're aping as many superficial aspects of the earlier titles as they can. Just without the charm or depth.

Sad that both Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden are falling from grace in the same year.

Posted by gaminginpublic

Wow.. They made Dante into a douche bag. Congrats!
