Capcom’s ‘Happy’ They Proved Fans Wrong About Devil May Cry’s New Dante

Even though Devil May Cry fans may not like Dante’s rebooted teenage appearance in DmC: Devil May Cry, Capcom says that everyone is slowly coming around to liking it. And as the developers put it, they’ve been vindicated.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think the hardcore fans still loathe it, it's only the new people or some regular fans who are liking this "Dante". Personally I hope they make this a separate series and continue with DMC5 made by either Capcom Japan or Platinum Games (miracle needed for the latter).

After release news article: "DMC fans 'happy' they proved Crapcom wrong with the a-hole Dante with reports of abysmal sales".

i couldn't agree more with that statement. it's basically all about numbers for capcom now, they're ignoring hardcore fans more and more since their numbers aren't getting any bigger.

StraightPath1908d ago

i wonder how this game is going to fair..

ninja theory have been have games with abysmal sales game after game..if this continues i see ninja theory being closed down very soon.

Platinum games need to get back DMC.

It's not that I like the new Dante. I've been playing Devil May Cry since 2001, and I will fully admit that the new Dante looks like a total tool.

But in spite of all that, I think the rest of the game is looking pretty dang good. It just looks different. If it's bad when I play it, then by god, stop the presses, we have a BAD GAME ON OUR HANDS YALL.

I don't mind admitting that the game is bad. But I don't mind admitting when a game is good either, so until I play it, I'm still going to remain optimistic...because seriously, aside from Dante it looks pretty sweet.

HammadTheBeast1908d ago

I don't really mind or care about how he looks, it's the way they completely changed the franchise, game play and story wise, that pisses me off, and they did all of this while still claiming it's DMC. It's not DMC, it's a whole other game, yet the label will get them hate.

BkaY1908d ago

that does it... i swear i was going to buy that game on half price but with that comment made by capcom..

no fuking way... they r not getting my money thats for sure


Led-Zeppelin1908d ago

The actual quote was "We understand why you guys had doubts, and we knew that we had to prove this to you, and we were happy to do it.’ That was our responsibility"

It doesn't sound so provocative and rude as in the title.

I'm still buying this game day 1, haters have nothing but to lose by hating, I'll be playing DMC come January.

BkaY1908d ago

provocative or not but it was

"Fuk you fans"

so from me ... no money for crapcom anymore

ohh after the RE6 that it XD


Jaces1908d ago

"Capcom’s ‘Happy’ They Proved Fans Wrong About Devil May Cry’s New Dante"

WTF? Capcom haven't proven anyone wrong, Im still as much against Dante's new design and meth addiction as I was when I 1st heard about it.

Also with every new piece of information released, I get even more annoyed at the utter crap Capcom and NT are turning one of my long time beloved franchises into.

I wish Capcom would stop lying and deluding themselves as well as others, the hate has not died down at all, we hardcore fans that are still against it have just gotten bored of being lied to and ignored.

doogiebear1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

Due to my studies I haven't been paying much attention to this series--so please tell me your kidding when u say that Dante is a meth addict. That's not really the story right? He just looks like a meth head only right?

Also, did they negatively mess up the gameplay of the game? I know the new Dante looks like a male crack whore on Hollywood Boulevard, but if the gamepay isn't all that effected, then is it worth so much commotion? Please help me understand as I know nothing about this reboot.

zerocrossing1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

Yeah the meth addict think is just a joke,but you cant really say its not a possibility lol. But everything else is spot on.

Seriously, Im not sure why they couldn't just make this a new IP and leave the Devil May Cry franchise in the hands of a competent dev, would really love to see what platinum games could do with it.

Actually yes, the combat looks like it's been stripped down so even the most fresh of noobs can pick it up and SSS all the missions 1st play through, and the seemingly endless air-combos are a joke! just where has all the skill gone?

doogiebear1908d ago

Competent Dev? It's a different developer? Why?

zerocrossing1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

I have absolutely no idea.

Apparently Capcom must have realised that the devs they had at the helm when the series was in still in its prime have all jumped ship, and there now complete and total lack of competence forced them to outsource the franchise, unfortunately for the hardcore fans and everyone else involved they chose Ninja theory...

Whitefox7891908d ago

Capcom seems to be full of themselves recently with this one (I guess its a case, if they say it enough times it must be true).

I can honestly agree with you and say that I'm annoyed as well though exactly like you said its tiring. I mean you just look at the pro combo videos on youtube of DMC3 and 4 and see how hard it is to get into the SSS status then look at this and say where did the challenge go?

Culturally the game is confused as I believed Castlevania Lords of Shadows is; great game however it doesn't feel like Castlevania (Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness felt more like Castlevania then LoS and this is from a guy who's played nearly every game even the gameboy ones!). Like you said earlier this game should of been its own IP so it can compete against games like DMC and Bayonetta. I think Capcom is scared to make anything original (that's why their sticking to outside developers to make their games except SF and RE) instead their clinging onto the names of their franchises for life support and using those names as a safety net.

user54670071908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

Totaly agree....very well said aswell

They just seem to be ignoring the hate now and pretending like everything is fine and dandy

ANOTHER reason not to support this game...Capcom are just as arrogant and ignorant as Ninja Theory why would you support a developer like that. Can't people stand their ground for once.

Godmars2901909d ago

Definitely a comment you wait for sales numbers before saying. Good numbers at that.

NickTheHitman1909d ago

U sir took the words out of my mouth. U got a bubble up. :D

firelogic1909d ago

It'll sell the same as any NT developed game. The DmC license isn't going to help since they're basically not using it all other than including some familiar names.

jimbobwahey1909d ago

Could go either ways in that case then. Heavenly Sword sold over a million copies, whereas Enslaved sold about 80,000 across all platforms if I remember correctly.

Personally I hope this game bombs just to send a clear message to Capcom that they've made a big mistake, but I have a feeling that the general public who couldn't care less about how the franchise has been butchered will gobble it up regardless.

I also think that the real tragedy here is that people are so hung up on the look of the new Dante being terrible, that they're failing to notice that the combat itself looks vastly inferior to the old DMC games as well.

Kratoscar20081909d ago

New Dante is almost the same as DMC 3 Dante, both annoying but over time i get acustomed.

I must admit that Cashcom doesnt know what they are talking about.
