New Dante. Absolutely. If they're going to make another game like that, I'd be more interested to see them give him another go.

They can always go back to old Dante if they feel like it.

Pretty sure that posting just a youtube video without any text discussion is considered youtube spam. So you might want to write something up.

DmC Devil May Cry is a good Western interpretation of the DMC series but the new Dante feels like an imitation. Classic Dante is goofier, way better with one liners and generally just sillier. Old Dante all the way.

Classic Dante is a fun character (mainly in DMC4, he's kind of a douche in 3 but that's sort of the point of his arc in that game) so I'd love to see him come back.

I have no reverence towards old dante or new dante in fact i think ive only ever played DMC2. Which i guess was the bad one?

I don't care. Rebooting the series with a new dante and then going back to the old one seems like a really REALLY dumb move though. Why not just have character growth / aging that pushes new dante more into the shoes of the old dante? Seems like a dumb question.

Seriously just make the new dante develop in a direction that addresses the concerns of the fans of the older games. Problem god damn solved.

New Dante. Simply because I want to see more of him. I want to see more of that world. We've already had the original Dante for 4 games.

It wouldn't be the first time.

I'd rather that they make another game with the original Dante. The new Dante just never struck a chord with me.

Well they aren't really comparable. bomberman and dante i mean.

I'm just saying it'd be super jarring and weird. Why would they go back to the old dante? because of people complaining? Didnt the new DmC do well both with fans and critics? I know Brad really liked it.

Plus going back and forth between the different versions of the protagonist is confusing and offputting to the general public. So rebooting him just to toss the rebooted version away because a minority didnt like him as much seems just ridiculous to me.

All they have to do, is maybe make his hair white all the time (which to me seemed like teh biggest complaint), make him goofier and age him a couple years, BOOM problem solved. Same damn character. Dante is just a white haired red coated oneliner machine anyways. I dont get peoples reverence for him but thats me.

Why keep the new Dante? The whole point Capcom pursued was to create a Devil May Cry that would attract a larger audience. They didn't succeed, and Ninja Theory is working on something else now.

And it's not just a matter of making new Dante's hair white. The new Dante is a fundamentally different character from the old one, from his attitude and personality to his lineage. You can't just say that this new Dante is a younger version of the old Dante because that is fundamentally not true on numerous levels.

DmC in general did well with critics but poorly with the actual fanbase, and it's the lowest selling Devil May Cry despite Capcom having hopes of it being the highest selling. Devil May Cry 4 was both the best selling DMC and one of Capcom's highest selling titles ever, (Number 11, only behind a handful of Resident Evil, Street Fighter and Monster Hunter games) so that combined with the fanbase wanting classic Dante back makes a return to the original universe make sense from a financial standpoint.

Yeah, you could make the new Dante more like the old one, but you're still going to have a bunch of people be super skeptical after not liking the last DmC, and if you're just gonna make him into old Dante why not just bring back old Dante? Making Devil May Cry 5 would instill a lot more confidence in fans who felt scorned by the reboot than making DmC: Devil May Cry 2 would. It might be jarring to the fans of the reboot, but there aren't a whole lot of them anyways.

I don't see why can't just do a Devil May Cry 5 sooner, and a dmc 2 later.

As long as it gets on XONE, I don't really care what they do.

Old Dante, not because he's a better character, (They're both pretty bad) but because it would help put them on better terms with fans.

Maybe a Devil May Cry 5 can be good, but my hopes aren't high. I'd be hopeful if Hideaki Itsuno was directing it.

Or hell, maybe Capcom gives Kamiya a giant sum of money and begs Platinum to make it. Now that'd be good!

Doesn't really matter to me, I thought both versions were alright. Now the combat mechanics leaning more towards 3/4 than DmC, that I would care about.

Classic Dante. Also, classic gameplay, instead of the downright broken easy, watered down shit from the reboot.

I liked DmC but I'm not attached to new Dante in the least. He felt pretty throwaway. I'll gladly take the over the top cheese of old one back.

It certainlywould not!

New Dante by a wide margin. I liked how flawed his character was, and look forward to seeing his arc.

A third Dante, this time with a mullet and 70's mustache. I want to see if it's possible to make fanboy heads literally explode in anger.

Definitely the new Dante. I don't understand the complaints of the new Dante. Sure, he was a jerk sometimes but wasn't he always like that? Besides, by the end of that game, he really had grown as a character and the ending really sets up the universe nicely so I would be excited if they made a DmC 2.

It doesn't bother me in the slightest which Dante they go with, as long as they revert to the DMC4 gameplay systems - preferably with some additions. DmC was far too shallow and easy compared to the previous iterations.

Newer Dante was slightly better on the personality front; plus his hair's white now so everyone likes him for no apparent reason.

They both suck. I kind of liked Dante in DMC3, but they ruined him in 4. I'd rather have another reboot. A more Gothic Japanese one.

If the game is fun, I don't much care. I enjoyed the new game well enough that I would not be opposed to seeing its story continue.

New of course so we can further distance ourselves from the old, dated gameplay of the previous titles. Stylistically the new one already outdid the old ones by many magnitudes.

Well they must have rebooted it for a reason. If DMC 4 was as successful as some of the people in this thread are claiming, then how come they didn't release a new one for like 5 years? And why did they decide to reboot it if they felt like everyone was so happy with it? Maybe there was something about the production of those older DMC games that made them unsustainable. I don't know, but even in 4 it seemed like they were trying to reinvent that franchise. Dante wasn't even the main character.

They both kinda suck, but DmC Dante (after having finally played it) is just real fucking dull. It's not even just the design (though that too was pretty boring), DMC3 Dante has much more...spirit? Was at least more fun to watch, and I'd prefer going back to that sort of writing philosophy.

Also, maybe leave the demon/angel weapons at the door. Neat idea, but I didn't love the implementation.

Old Dante. I feel like the new Dante spends too much time talking and trying to make himself seem cool and edgy. It comes across as some 12 year old kids idea of what being awesome is like. Curse a lot, and be angsty. Old Dante for the most part acted ridiculous instead of talking and it was more fun to watch because of that. Also having to use the angel and demon weapons against certain enemies wasn't fun.

DmC is dull. The story takes itself too seriously and there are too many cutscenes. There are only like six enemy types, most of them with bloated health. DMC3 had cooler bosses and more of them. DmC's bosses are almost all ugly. I remember DMC3 having more enemies on screen as well. The color pallet or world design wasn't as monotonous, and the combat allowed for more variety. DmC doesn't need two evade buttons. And DMC3 didn't have fucking boring levels like where you follow Kat as she's being pursued.

I'm not too fussed, tbh. While I wasn't "outraged" at the way they overhauled the series, I was disappointed in the direction they took the combat.

Sure thing brah. You're totally right. Those are absolutely the reasons why DmC Dante is winning this poll.
