Capcom: Continuity With Previous DMC Titles 'Very Important'

"Addressing another developer full-house, on Sunday at Eurogamer Expo in Earls Court, London, Capcom US Producer Alex Jones and Ninja Theory Communications Manager Dominic Matthews took time to talk fans through what they can look forward to from the next instalment in the Devil May Cry franchise." (Capcom, DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

That is great news for fans of the franchise. The game looks to be awesome. Hope it lives up to previous Ninja Theory games.

It's not great news at all.

What they're doing is grasping at straws.
Carl_Shocker  +   1153d ago
Exaclty...they are trying to give people hope to give them the push to buy the new one thinking that Capcom sitll care about the old games.

Fact is if this sells enough they won't give a crap about the old games or old Dante anymore.

“We wanted to make sure that the combat was accessible to as many people as possible..."

This explains the combat gameplay vids we've seen, especially the demo video in which the guy was just pressing the same button over and over again. It was like Easy Automatic. They're aiming at casuals instead of the hardcore fans.

thennnnn why didn't you make it like the series at all? You can't tell me this is at all like the original games because it's no where near being like the originals.
SolidGear3  +   1153d ago
I agree. It's a hell of alot better

"It's a hell of a lot better"

Spoken like someone who hasn't played much of the Devil May Cry series.

Go away Tameem.

New Dante will always be uncool compared to the REAL Dante.
As long as Capcom ruin their franchises (DMC, Megaman,Resi) I will keep boycotting it.
ThanatosDMC  +   1153d ago
Oh yeah, they killed Megaman too.... wtf is wrong with Capcom?!
JellyJelly  +   1153d ago
I bet they said the same for Resident Evil, and look how that turned out.
abzdine  +   1153d ago
ok ok !

what about Resident Evil ?
pandehz  +   1153d ago
I like this new DMC.

Im all for change
PopRocks359  +   1153d ago
Virtually changing everything that made the series appealing to your fanbase and having it all developed by piss poor developer is not a good change.

You're open for change until it sucks. Just throwing that out there.

Why is it that when a person has a personal opinion about his/her tastes and choices, it tends to cause leaks in other's egos and similar backlash ensues?
GillHarrison  +   1153d ago
As much as I understand why people wouldn't like the game with all the changes, Ninja Theory is not a piss poor developer.
Kureno_Nakamura  +   1153d ago
You're all for us not getting a conclusion to a story we were quite invested in. What about the people who were here first, who were waiting to see Dante's next adventure? 4 left the saga COMPLETELY open.
PopRocks359  +   1153d ago
I'm just calling it as I see it, that's all.
breakpad  +   1153d ago
i dont care about continuity in gameplay mechanics (you cannt change that anyway you will have a sure failure then..)it bothers me(and all the fans) that you dont keep continuity with the art direction
Max-Zorin  +   1153d ago
Judging from the comments, if Capcom went out of business, not a single tear would be shed for good reasons.
LiquidSword93  +   1152d ago
I care about the same stuff everyone cares about. Story, characters, gameplay, style etc. this game makes me sad because it has no style, the story and characters suck, and the gameplay is like the original devil may cry's (you know, the good ones) but only on heroine. Lots of it.
