When DmC: Devil May Cry was announced, many fans weren’t exactly happy with the new aesthetic direction and reboot. Dante with short, dark hair? Blasphemous. However, it has been proven time and time again that gamers are reluctant to change, but change isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, sometimes change is exactly what a franchise needs to revitalize itself.
Style made the Devil May Cry series popular in the first place, and the reboot has been pumped with an extra pound of attitude. The original Dante was cocky and always cool, and Ninja Theory made the new Dante, well…cocky and always cool with short hair. This may sound like a minor change on paper, but in reality the new Dante is very different, which may take fans of the old Dante–including myself–some time to adjust.
