This pretty much gets rid of any worry I had about Ninja Theory taking over the DMC franchise. This combat looks solid and a lot of fun to play.

Can't wait for this to come out and get my DmC on!

The art direction looks fantastic. Though, I really don't like the look of the main character.

Posted by clank543

Well, it looks like Devil May Cry, that's for sure. Lots of overcomplicated aerial combos that my fingers cannot possibly do! Whoooooo!!!!!!

I liked what I have seen so far of the new DMC.

However, seeing is not the issue, since the series was never about graphics. A demo is the only thing that can dissipate my doubts for good.

I love how "images show game still in development" is plastered over it, something you don't see too often in trailers. Basically pre-emptive damage control. Still not very impressed.

This could be the first DMC game I play since the original

Posted by tayls

Ninja Theory has, as always, knocked the art direction out of the park. I'm excited.

Nice art but the combat is an absolute mess and people are still going to pretend this is about character design.

What else is new?

Posted by Itwastuesday

This game still looks good, but now that we know RISING REVENGEANCE is on the horizon I just don't know if there's room in my life for other character action games of the future.

Big fan of Devil May Cry as it was, so I'm still sort of skeptical.  But I'm also a big fan of Ninja Theory, so hopefully this works out.
 
I just hope they can nail the bosses, which I've always found to be a strength of the series.

Looks a little slower than previous DMC games I've seen played. Then again, the guy showing off the combos could just be a shitty dev/player. Get it in the hands of a DMC player and we'll probably see a different side to this game.

Hope this game does well, though. Even if it's not really up my alley, I'd like to see Ninja Theory do good.

Wow, that's some nice ass art.

Copyright from the future!
 
I understand that that game will be (c)2012, but this here trailer is released in 2011 (unless I've pulled a Rip Van Winkle and didn't notice) so wouldn't that be (c)2011?
 
And it looks like we've got the makings for a great set of comments here:
"...looks great!"
"...looks like shit!"
"...combat looks good!"
"...combat looks terrible!"
(I still don't get how you can tell this by looking, but I guess that's just me.)
"...stupid main character!"
"...the main character looks fine!"

After seeing Heavenly Sword and Enslaved, we know Ninja Theory can do gorgeous art direction and level design with their eyes closed. What I'm curious to see is how they handle what appears to be a very active and demanding combat system. Games like Bayonetta and God Of War have really set the bar high for a modern, polished character action game.

Having said that, this installment interests me more than any DMC since the first ones.

Also, it's always nice to see that Giant Bomb is a haven of great commenters, sheltered from roaming wild packs of Japanophiles tearing games to shreds because Dante isn't kakkoii enough.

You know what I finally understand it all see Hideo Kojima look at these trailers and went eff this if they're not making a DMC I will and so that's how Raising Revenge came about and when people told him that's not MGS he said chill guys I'll make MGS5 one day and besides you really think a cyborg ninja will make a good stealth game I don't think so.

Posted by enune77

Am I the only one who noticed that the level design is a carbon copy of Bayonetta? IMO the action and combo system look OK but the level design and the graphics (at the games current state) are lacking.

Posted by McGhee

Combat and graphics look cool but I'm getting a little tired of the "kill all the guys to unlock the door" kind of gameplay.

The music sounds like the first 45 seconds of a neurofunk track.

The last one was really good if you only play half of it.

Posted by Terrents

I actually don't see the problem people had with Nero. Personally I enjoyed playing as Nero and his move set much more than Dantes. The devilbringer kind of spoiled me. That said I respect that others might have liked the Dante part more because he is the title character so to speak - I meant that the game is great until you get to that point where it basically makes you replay everything from end to beginning, fighting the exact same bosses that employ the exact same attack patterns. The end of the game where they make you fight the bosses for a third time, now one after another just sent me really over the edge.

Possibly the laziest design I've ever seen in a relatively modern day game.

Posted by ESREVER

@Humanity: I had no problem with Nero. Its just that Dante is... well, Dante. I liked playing as Nero, its just if given the choice, I would choose to play as Dante over him. The design was pretty lazy, but I still really enjoyed the game.

Wait, how much of this game have you actually played? Do you know something I don't?

DAT AIR JUGGLING

DAT SUN THAT IS BURNING MY EYES

Posted by doe3879

Hard mode better be available from start, DMC enemy should never be this passive. 
Attack!!!!!!!! 
getting there... 3 , 2 , 1 now attack 

Edited by BoOzak

Scenery looks cool, but damn. After going back and playing some more Bayonetta, the combat in DMC looks like garbage. Granted I havent played it, and it's hard to tell from these videos, but just judging from the speed and the transition between combos this seems pretty dull. Hope it gets better before release! I'll probably end up playing it regardless because i'm a beat'um up whore. (that sounded kind of wrong.. oh well)

Posted by Toxin066

I got two things from it. 1) The move set looked awfully repetitive for a game about stylish action. That's not really how I would show off my combat. And 2) Bayonetta set a new standard in crazy stylish action. I feel like I might like this game more of it came out before DMC4 and Bayonetta. The art design and colors look aight, but man - that was depressing. And just when I was getting optimistic.

Posted by dezvous

Cracks me up how some of you act as if you've played it already. While it might not look as insane as Bayonetta, it definitely looks like it demands a bit more as far as actual knowledge of combos goes. Which is something DMC has always been about, you could just button mash and win, but a higher level of enjoyment came out of really mixing up the combat.

Glad to see the devil bringer back in some form, I thought it was a great addition to the series and playing as Nero in DMC4 was way more enjoyable than playing as Dante in that same game because of it. Also, I didn't really enjoy how they portrayed Dante in DMC4.

Game likes solid.

Posted by Arx724

Oh, man, that UE3 texture pop at 00:36. And I'm nitpicking, but did the pistols sound like your generic FPS' M4 to anyone else?

As for the game itself, I enjoyed both Heavenly Sword and Enslaved, but the action just... didn't click for me. It felt a lot more repetitive and automated compared to Devil May Cry games. That, and the game seems to go a different way with its CRAZY, which I don't really think suits the series.

Oh well, we'll see.

Posted by Tesla

This looks fun. Why so critical?

Posted by Manos

This looks more like God of War than Devil May Cry, from a level design stand point and Dante having a lot of HUGE reach on his attacks that take up a lot of the screen.

Gone is the finesse and in its wake is left button mashing.

@NoelVeiga: I have access to the exact same information you do. We may just have different perspectives on it.

For example, the incredibly floaty and free air combat takes away any actual incentive to get good at air manipulation or understand it. Or the "cinematic" camera angles getting between you and what you actually are trying to see. There's the confirmed limitations of your combat options in terms of weapon choice. There's 30 frames a second, and the effect that has on the smoothness and preciseness of everything. We know plenty. It's your choice as to whether you care about it or not.

Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam

It could do without the bright flashes every time Dante hits a dude. Makes it difficult to see who's about to attack you. Other than that, looks like the game is shaping up nicely.

Posted by theuselessgod

Fix that framerate, gosh.

But I'm still super pumped for this.

You're reading too much into this sentence.

Posted by Petruccio

Bayonetta kinda burried slow paced combat of DMC for me.

Posted by Lydian_Sel

You know what? Fuck it.

If they're going to all the trouble to reboot the franchise and cop this amount of flak from the fans anyway then I'd rather they just gut this game and make it unrecognisable from any other Devil May Cry title.

Seeing the door blocked off till you killed all the minions in the room just stuck out as something really dated, to be honest I'm not really sure if that kind of thing should still fly in contemporary games.

Devil May Cry has a huge place in my heart and always will but what's the point in going through all of this drama if the only drastic changes they're making are cosmetic? The HD collection is all the nostalgia we need so Ninja Theory should just leave all of that stuff to the previous games that the fans love and make DMC the game to push the franchise forward in new and different ways.

I don't care what anyone out there says. This game looks crazy awesome, & I can't wait to play it!!

This game looks fucking awesome. The haters -- if there are any after this month's latest batch of videos -- are really stupid. "His hair isn't white anymore", is soooo moronic. How could you possibly justify that excuse against all the awesome stuff going on in this game?

It's also offensive to keep hearing these buttholes call Dante "Emo-looking" when he's clearly punk rock inspired. Kids today; don't know shit about music, or anything.

You're a moron. This is as Devil May Cry as can be. And if you can't see that, than you're blind. It's amazing you ever noticed anything in the original games. Because DMC's combat, style and attitude is still here - all the punk rock-infused demon killing you could want. Just because Dante's look is different, you're really going still be this ignorant? I'm ashamed to know there are gamers like you out there somewhere.

Everyone's entitled to their opinions, mate. If you have no problem with the new look, thats great. fair enough. But dont start calling people morons and igorant just because they've got a different opinon to you.

Where'd I put my copies of DMC 1-3???

Posted by phantomzxro

It looks like you will love this game or hate it but it just seems weird for all the trouble they did to throw everything out to try so hard to recreate the same battle style and not do it as well. They should have added something new to the table because if this is a crappier dmc4 with a new coat of paint i do not want. But i guess it's a damned if you do damned if you don't.
