Dante got replaced by the nigga from Twilight
Wow. This is retarded. Fuck off Ninja Theory, go make Heavenly Sword 2 or something.
I mean, I’m all for a reboot, DMC 4 shat the bed(I liked it but anything after DMC 3 was gonna underperform). But what they’re giving us is just…the bad design, the VA for Dante that doesn’t fit, and it’s pretty soon for a reboot anyway isn’t it? Most companies wait like a decade for those.
WHY?!?!?! I don’t even understand the purpose of this. It’s not like DMC was from that long ago and Dante, as he is now, is an established Capcom character with defining traits.
I’m VERY disappointed that it’s a reboot. With that said, it could turn out to be a decent game. Ninja Theory is very talented and the last thing they would do is make a bad game, but this new approach to the series isn’t really doing it for me.
There’s a trailer for it on 1up.com. I really hope this doesn’t turn out to be a disappointment, though I’m majorly pissed off about them replacing the original Dante with…this guy.
I decided to ignore the story completely and just be excited about the gameplay. That being said I can’t wait for this game.
This abomination doesn’t even need its own thread, really.
Fuck you Ninja Theory, go away.
Team Dante up in here tho
I could understand if they’re reimagining/remodeling a game from many, many years ago, but DMC isn’t that old. It doesn’t need a reboot. Let’s reboot God of War, Metal Gear Solid, and Halo while we’re at it.
Its the reflective Karma from MvC3 not only existing, bu having Dante…
I’m not trying to be a dick here, I’m really not, but…
You’re excited about the gameplay…from the dudes that made…Heavenly Sword??
Um…would someone get me when Bayonetta 2 is announced?
Why a reboot? And, I’m nowhere near the biggest fan of Heavenly Sword…at all. I’ll reserve my gameplay comments until I see actual footage of gameplay, but um…this was unnecessary. Changing Dante into this shit makes no sense either. Just use a different character…
Small nitpick, but why another fucking axe. Dante’s inferno already had that…oh…har har. NT.
This shit can be hit or miss. I still crown the original DMC king and that bar hasn’t really been surpassed by a large amount of games. We’ll see. Can’t be any worse than DMC4 was.
Yeah. Yeah I am. Heavenly sword was what? 4 years ago? And I’m pretty sure considering the crap they got for that game they know better now. Plus didn’t the dude from capcom said it was going to remain a truly DMC game?
At this point we’re all hating/excited based on suppositions. We have no fucking clue what it’s going to turn up as so we can either shut it down or keep our minds opened. I prefer the latter.
Honestly, design-wise this “Dante” reminds me of what GRIN did to “Nathan Spencer” in the horrid 3D Bionic Commando.
I hope M. Night helps with this game, we need a plot twist at the end saying something like “Oh this was all just a dream of Dantes”
You haven’t played DMC2, have you?
I haven’t seen the trailer yet (I’ll watch it when I get home from work), but the screenshots already have me less than thrilled. Dante was fine the way he was. This just screams of the Bionic Commando treatment. Admittedly, I enjoyed the new BC, but not for its story and main character. DMC is fun because Dante is this silly, over the top guy, not because he’s a grim and gritty badass.
At this point M. Night would be a godsend, because then “the twist” can be that this game never gets released.
I’m going to bed.
The hell?! was the first thing that comes to mind, no need for a reboot this soon. It isn’t even like Devil May Cry skipped a console generation
I’m having a hard time accepting this change.
Ninja Theory still haven’t proven themselves imo.
They may be able to capture Dante’s personality but this new look is unwelcome. Is this what Capcom imagines westerners think is ‘manly’ and ‘cool’.
eh, I’ll probably buy it anyway…like I always do…even DMC 2
Ninja Theory not Team Ninja. If Team Ninja were behind this we might actually have something cool to look forward to.
