    Dante is the star of Capcom's Devil May Cry series and the son of the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda. He is also the owner of his own business as a demon hunter, stationed at his Devil May Cry shop along with Trish.

    Anyone saying Dante is no longer cool in the new DmC...

    You know, I don't ever even use this word, but I can't think of a better word than "douche" to describe how Dante looks here.

    That Ninja Theory guy Dante "mysteriously" resembles must think incredibly highly of himself.

    He's still a punk.

    I will never be satisfied until he is not a punk again. He wasn't in 1 and 4. And even in 3, he was only kinda punky.

    Which is a shame, because the game actually looks pretty cool. Not gonna buy it though. Unless I do. But I'm going to resist.

    I'll wait until they put out Ultimate DMC: Off the Record. (cough, Capcom joke, cough)

    My only issue with the New dante is that he is based on the likeness of the Head Dev.

    Well as someone who literally knows nothing about DMC, looks fine to me. Also isn't this a prequel? Doesn't it make sense that he's a little more rash and 'punky' in his youth?

    It's a reboot. DMC3 was the prequel where he was more rash an punky.

    @DonutFever: I was about to say the same I never saw and I think most never percieved Dante as "cool" more as annoying japanese cliche.At least now he's not a cliche and more of a douche but hey progress is progress.

    I feel like the internet sees Ninja Theory is Judas with Caiphus and Annas as Capcom to Dante's Jesus.

    Especially with this bit of information about Capcom I got on Wikipedia.

    "Reception to the new design of Dante and direction of the series was largely negative. In an interview, Capcom revealed that they knew Dante's new look would be met with negative backlash and that they pressed forward with this in mind. DmC is an origin story. In August 2011, new screenshots revealed that the design for Dante had undergone changes.

    If I was a bigger DMC fan, I'd be much more worried about Ninja Theory's questionable reputation on the gameplay front than anything else.

    I still think he looks ugly, but it really doesn't matter what dante looks like. What I'm most concerned about is whether or not Ninja Theory is capable of making a good DMC game.

    This Dante can only be cool if two things happen,

    1. He gets a really, really good Voice Actor
    2. He shows a lot of character dept, possibly through the use of a love interest.

    If these two things happen then we will get a very badass character

    Thats what Ninja Theory does though. Narrative and voice acting are top notch (based on Enslaved). So the character seems like he'll be well done when the game actually comes out.

    Dante was never cool. He went from one shitty design to another shitty design. It baffles me that anyone cares or considers Dante a visually interesting character in any way.

    Fuck I hate Japan and its awful, awful character design.

    It's strange. Why would they change his looks after all this time? Capcom can suck it. (Well not really, I just enjoyed Dante's looks before this.. this hoodlum, thug dude)

    I suppose to me he looks badass with the long, white hair.. he looks more like a son of Sparda...? Although, perhaps that is just my thoughts.

    Dante was cool to some people and not cool for others. Some people that thought Dante was cool are acting ike assholes when it comes to the new design. Some people who thought he was never cool are acting like assholes by saying stuff like this. @Meowshi said:

    So keep an open mind. Don't act like an asshole. Realize that many different people have different opinions on what is "cool.

    Because I'm not a vegetable, I clearly know that what I'm saying is my own opinion, and not everyone else's. Because I'm not braindead, I'm well aware that not everyone else will feel this way, and that my views aren't fact. Thanks for reminding me though. I sometimes slip into a coma when I post.

    Still looks like a wimpy emo kid to me, but he looked like a wimpy emo kid before as well so, who effin cares.
     
    Japanese devs must learn the definition of badass I think:
     

    I don't know about you, but when I'm playing a game I rather have a character who is a badass and not some wimpy emo BS.

    While I think there's been a big over-reaction about the new character design, I don't exactly think these images are going to win back anyone who already thinks the new look for Dante sucks.

    I have no problem with it. Sure it's trying hard to be "cool" but that has always been the tone of Devil May Cry games.

    Dude, I don't even really connect with the DMC games and I think his new look is pretty rad.

    EDIT: wait, just read the other comments, and no longer think he looks cool. I think he looks like a cunt.
