VGR: So with all of this being said, why the heck is Ninja Theory doing Devil May Cry? Devil May Cry has been a pure action game with a nonsensical story and forgettable characters (save Dante) seemingly as a rule. To bring in a developer known for having great story and bad combat mechanics seems a bad fit. My prediction is this: traditional Devil May Cry fans are going to HATE DmC (and by and large, they already do). There’s no way the combat is going to hold up to the lofty standard of past games in the series, and if Ninja Theory stays true to their roots, there are going to be some deep themes explored in the game’s story, instead of a thin skeleton of plot made just to push the player from combat scenario to combat scenario.
