New Devil May Cry Is “Less Campy – More Darker”, Says Capcom Producer

Capcom’s US producer Alex Jones has claimed that the forthcoming Devil May Cry reboot is less cheesy and more grown-up than the original series. (Alex Jones, Capcom, Dev, DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

So you think the last games were campy...REALLY

Yeah thats it Capcom go a head and call the previous games like what NT are doing. This is why they don't deserve success with this reboot, it's not just because it looks terrible, it's because they just don't give a crap about DMC, the fans or respect the franchise.

Oh and cheesy...yeah and this game isn't ¬¬

That's the point! What the hell, Capcom you have betrayed your roots with this game.
Yeah the game is "campy" but most heavily influenced Japanese games are!

Look at MGS 1-4's dialogue. These games are Japanese and WEIRD. But that's what I like about them. Ok, so DMC4 got a bit stale, but so the hell what?! Just change the character acting and make it more serious. No need to involve NT and re-design the whole thing!
Honestly, I think Capcom is pulling at strings because of the negative buzz this game received.
They are REALLY trying to sell this game. Thing is, I bet Capcom already lost a ton of money on this game. How many re-designs for Dante? Doesn't time=money?? So now sales are really important, and I feel this games sales will suffer. Big time. Time will tell.

They were campy, but that is what made them so amazing. These developers have no idea what made the original games great. This game will never live up to or even be comparable to the real Devil May Cry.

How campier can you get with that???

Almost sounds like something out of Twilight.

That's cheesy, not campy. Peeps need to know their words.

The last games were campy? Ha!
vallencer  +   1190d ago
They were campy man they really were. That doesn't mean they're bad. The campyness was awesome but it's not like he's wrong. It's like watching the evil dead movies they're campy but awesome.
Myst-Vearn  +   1190d ago
Still not buying this. I want this to flop so bad that they make a proper DMC5 soon.
vallencer  +   1190d ago
Why would you want a game to flop as a gamer?? That then means the company who made it could get into financial trouble and go out of business and Ninja Theory makes good games regardless of what you think of this one. If you're not going to enjoy it for whatever the reason then let other people enjoy it if they're interested in it. Remember that not everyone has every played a DMC game before.

"Ninja Theory makes good games regardless of what you think of this one."

I'm sorry what games did they make that were good? Heavenly Sword was a terrible clone of DMC that nobody cared about because....oh yeah it's a terrible clone. Enslaved was a terrible rip-off of Uncharted that dropped to twenty bucks within two weeks of it's release.

They haven't made a single good game in there life.
KUV1977  +   1190d ago
Heavenly Sword was great. In my view much better than DMC, both artistically and from a gameplay perspective. If at all it was rather a God of War clon, which isn't neccessarily bad in my book. The only trouble it had was that it was a bit short and technically not really all that great. Enslaved was also a good games as most reviews attest. Technically however it seemed to be even worse than Heavenly Sword with a really low framerate and pop-ins all over the place. DMC played much smoother than that already so I am looking forward to it.

@ Vallencer......Agreed 100%!!!!

best DMC ever
KUV1977  +   1190d ago
I played it at GamesCom and besides the monster design really liked it. Nice fluid gameplay, descent environment graphics. I'll certainly buy it.
PersonaCat  +   1190d ago
Say goodbye to your bubbles :(
All jokes aside, I agree. This looks like it'll be a lot of fun to play.
Vandamme21  +   1190d ago
I'm looking forward to this game..but I still want DMC5 after

I hate this generation's trend of making things "darker" and "edgier". It's not just games that do this either. A lot of recent movie remakes/reboots have been darker and "less campy" in order to appear "cooler" to a younger audience. What's wrong with a bit of fun and campiness?
pandehz  +   1190d ago
Its hard to do good campiness when 80' and 90's used up all the campiness.

So today anything campy has to be campy for the 2k generation. It will come in a few years.
-Gespenst-  +   1190d ago
YES! Finally someone who shares the same opinion as me. I'm thinking the Dark Knight and the recent Spiderman reboot. So freakin lame. Waaaaay too serious. Superheroes / vigilantes are necessarily ridiculous, stop trying to make them so dark and edgy, it's just juvenile.

The same applies to this DmC reboot, god every trailer's just cringy and smug as hell. It really is laughable.
-Gespenst-  +   1190d ago
And that's why this new one sucks. Takes itself waaaay too seriously.
pandehz  +   1190d ago
Thats why its a REBOOT?

Maybe thats one of the changes. Maybe they want us to take the plot seriously and understand Dante or whatever?

Dunno we'll see.

Its easy to judge things when all you know is based on the earlier DMC so yea everything other than that will be crap unfortunately.

This is what a reboot does.

So yea I wont be judging, we'll see when it gets here.
-Gespenst-  +   1190d ago
Why does the fact that it's a reboot have to mean that it becomes more serious in tone? It doesn't, and all they're doing here is pandering to a shallow trend in this generation of entertainment.

Why does "less-cheesy" = "more-grown up". Such a juvenile attitude. Cheesiness, campiness and absurdity can be "grown-up" in their own way. Humour can be just as if not more profound and serious than anything that claims to be as serious as this.

It's just laughable to me when people try to make absurd ideas serious, believable and real.

"Darker" is actually a fancy word for "another DMC 2"
brettyd  +   1190d ago
"more darker" wouldn't that be "darker"?
BlackFalcon  +   1190d ago
"More darker" would more likely be "darkerer".

But yes, they should have typed just "darker". Apparently, you don't need higher than a D in English class to get a job writing video game articles.
matgrowcott  +   1190d ago
That's the dev, not the write-up. You can see it in the original VG24/7 interview.


Apparently you don't need much in the way of qualification to share uninformed opinions on the internet either?

Then he should have written "more darker (sic)" to let readers know that he is directly quoting the original source and recognizes it as an error.

matgrowcott  +   1190d ago
Or he could assume his readership has a modicum of intellect. It's in quotes, it's followed by the words "says Capcom producer" and the original article, with the original grammatical mistake, is linked within. It took me three seconds to click across to VG24/7 and see the original quote. I also think that the words stated are perfectly fine in terms of using it in a title and knowing what was meant (it is darker in comparison to previous games in the franchise), so being pedantic aside, I can't imagine anyone really cares. The point was made, the job done, the English language served its purpose, communication was made.

But, of course, if you take any of that into account you can't insult the intelligence of games journalists. Hope you had fun there, big man.

The tone does seem a bit darker(serious),the other DMC games were somewhat campy(cheesy)with it's one liners & quirky dialog but they were fun it didn't hinder my gameplay experience in any way so I won't judge this game or know how serious or campy it is till I play it.

We...I, play games that I can get immersed in. Playing darksiders 2....love it. Its no where near real...but it works because its serious. Same applies to DMC. Though, I do want Dante to be witty and a cool operator, I don't want silly camp.

I've been playing games since colecovision...and times change, games change too.
Adolph Fitler  +   1189d ago
So glad they have handed development duties to Ninja Theory.....they may actually put some life back into the series after the backtrack-A-thon that was DMC4.
Heavenly Sword is awesome, Enslaved is awesome, Ninja Theory are awesome & there DMC looks awesome from what I've seen so far, so as long as they don't do a Capcom DMC2 job on it, I should be adding it to my collection.

And huge DMC fans not happy with the developer change up should go out & get Bayonetta (if they already haven't), as it is the closest game I have seen to DMC ol' skool gameplay I have seen this gen. It is also regarded by many as a better game & it's spiritual successor.
