Original Devil May Cry Creator Sticks Up For the New DmC

Game developer Hideki Kamiya of Platinum Games and recent Bayonetta fame will field just about any question on Twitter, whether he's well-versed on a topic or not. Something he knows a ton about? Devil May Cry games. Kamiya was the director on the original Devil May Cry back in 2001 and a very good authority on what makes a Devil May Cry game great.

Not surprisingly, fans and foes of the newest game in the Devil May Cry series, the newly-released DmC, want to know his thoughts on it.

The story is too old to be commented.

Certainly better than NT did when announcing they were taking over the franchise. Which is part of the problem.

I feel kinda guilty for actually being entertained by nerd rage for once.

Is this what being a troll feels like?

Army_of_Darkness1954d ago

He didn't actually say that the new DMC was good, he simply said that even though he had nothing to do with the series for years now, he is happy that fans are still supporting the DMC franchise till this day.
I didn't see anything stating that he thought that the new game was good personally....

DragonKnight1954d ago

I find this to be strange. First of all, Kotaku are the ones that posted the article that he hated, and now what are they trying to do with this one?

Second, wtf is up with the Ninja Theory account talking about how they are fans and yet when the game was announced and interviews happened a little afterward, Ninja Theory (admittedly mostly Tameem) put down the older series and even Kamiya himself?

Kamiya has taken a very diplomatic stance though. Gotta agree with Vile that it's classy especially when so many have called him racist or an asshole (even though he's not).

Nerdmaster1954d ago


Well, he said "DmC is a very unique title, and I honestly hope that people enjoy it." and he agreed to the guy who said "Glad you feel that way. Ninja Theory is a really talented UK studio and they've treated your game with respect."

I bet Capcom paid him to say this stuff...

/end conspiracy

wishingW3L1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

he is just being polite, just look at what he did to Kotaku and what he said about the PS All-Star game. Piss him off a little and see what will happen....

j-blaze1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

it's very clear Kamiya didn't write those tweets, the sentences were very organized and with punctuation marks too....publicity work? obviously!

@ DragonKnight

well said, NT doesn't deserve any respect especially from Kamiya, NT's head was disrespectful towards us, Kamiya and everything related to old DMC games

Karum1953d ago

I dunno about respect, I neither love or hate NT but I am a DMC fan since the first one was released and have been enjoying the new game.

I couldn't really care less about the developer, how people feel about them etc. just as long as I have fun with whatever game I've chosen to play that is enough for me.

Grap1954d ago

says the one who is going to destroy MGS series.

Allsystemgamer1954d ago

If ur talking abou rising ur a fool. It's a spinoff that showcases raidens skills AS HE IS IN MGS4. There is phantom pain and GZ which are SOLID titles. Not MGR.

SO your trolling is terribad.

wishingW3L1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

it's no spin-off, it has already been confirmed that is cannon (sadly). And while the gameplay looks great the writing and story are looking pretty terrible. People and especially fans of the series are in all their right to complain since "story" is a huge chunk of what makes a Metal Gear game be a Metal gear game.

But the question is, what is it with you people that condemn any kind of negative opinion? We are all different, we think differently and we have different opinions you know.

TheCagyDies1954d ago

Hideki Kamiya stated a thousand times, he has nothing to do with MGR.

SAE1954d ago

Kojima him self went to bayoneta developers and gave them the game because his team was having issues to make it work together . so he could have canceled it him self but he like the idea ...

mgr will be amazing or at least fun because it's trying something new not like DmC . that's why im buying it new day 1 :P

OptimisticPrime1954d ago

Dmc not trying something new? The fuck?

wishingW3L1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

DmC is all new. And the original plans for Metal Gear Rising were that PG was going to do the gameplay and KojiPro the story but then things went a little wrong when the director (from PG) changed the time-line and the story too.

This decision brought a huge dispute between KojiPro and PG but since the director was from PG they had to go for the alternate time-line. Now the story is just pure anime cheese ala Vanquish and Bayonetta because the PG director wanted to make the gameplay really over-the-top.

If you ask me the fans would have been happier if the story stayed as originally intended with less over-the-top gameplay. ;___;

And yes, the story is cannon.

SAE1954d ago

Ok, My fault . New means exciting new ideas in gameplay. it is trying to be what it is but DmC is changing to the bad . the character act like a teenager with the word 'Fuck' . the gameplay is easy as hell, it wouldnt be a problem if it was a new ip but it is because old dmc's was famous for being challenging...

i know nothing about the story in mgr so i cant judge that but the gameplay looks amazing and refreshing in a good way (And hopefully challenging too) . that's what i mean..

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1954d ago

Kamiya has nothing to do with MGR im not sure what your talking about. Atsushi Inaba is the director of Rising.

"We all know ninja theory paid him so much $$$ to get him to sell out and defend this game!" -every enraged fanboy since this game was announced.

Root1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

Even though he said in the past he didn't like it....yeah like I'll believe him now

He even said how NT didn't respect it, now he's saying they do

What the hell is going on

Lets not forget NT have called him and his creation in the past


LOL disagrees....yup keep disagreeing even though it's the truth. Some people just can't stand the truth I suppose

vallencer1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

God you're on this one too spewing your conspiracy theories. What if, and this may be hard for you to understand, he really does like the game and thinks its going in a good direction?

The feud between them is their own I honestly don't care but they both are respecting each other now and that's all that matters to me.

Root1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

Oh for the love of GOD

Whats wrong with you....seriously, just let others have THEIR opinions. Your so bothered about what other people think, that you have to comment on them and try to
undermine them

"he really does like the game and thinks its going in a good direction?"

Even though he said he didn't and he said the exact opposite for the past two years since it was announced.

Two years of being disappointed with it and don't just change your tune like that....You whiteknights can say what you want but at the end of the day it's common sense and you wouldn't just change your opinion like that

amaguli1954d ago

"Some people just can't stand the truth I suppose"

Like maybe the fact that Kamiya may have some respect for the game?

vallencer1954d ago (Edited 1954d ago )

You can have your opinion but why can't I have my own opinion about your opinion?? I'm not undermining you at all. Honestly you get more up in arms then anyone I've ever replied to. I don't really get bothered but I do like having discussions and it's fun with you cause you freak out and get so flustered. Plus you called me a twat and it was rude. Especially when I thought we were just having a discussion.

Someone's link from below disproves you sir.

DangerousDAN1954d ago

thanks for clearing that up, man. I hate that these guys are always putting words in other people's mouths. They can have their opinion, sure, everyones does, but theirs is based on pure biased hate that makes it very difficult to respect.

Norrison1954d ago

@Your Reply
You're being such an hypocrite, you're telling him to let others have their own opinion when you said that your opinion is a fact.
