If they make a new game I hope they go back to classic style Devil May Cry.
Treezy504  +   502d ago | Well said
That would be nice if Capcom would actually listen to fan feedback.
Godmars290  +   502d ago
Because they've given every indication of doing such in the past. Rather than go as far as to blame fan feedback for a game failure or cancellation.
abzdine  +   502d ago
dmc is a very good game, but the look of Dante is really terrible.
bring back the original one or at least Nero with the same gameplay
minimur12  +   502d ago
I wouldn't ind a PS Vita DmC, I heard there was one for PSP but I think it was in the early days where it wasn't too popular and it was cancelled :(
Conzul  +   502d ago
I just finished DmC since it was on PS+. I rather liked it, but I can appreciate how a big change in character look would piss some people off.

I can't imagine how pissed I would have been if SP had gone with that "new" Cole for inFamous 2.
DragonKnight  +   502d ago
@Godmars: The difference between then and now is that Capcom literally can't afford to piss off the fanbase this time. They simply don't have the money to absorb another flop like DmC was for them.
Lord_Sloth  +   502d ago
Just throwing this out there. Capcom has already stated they were pulling their resources back to internal development and Itsuno wants to make DMC5.

If it ain't the classic Devil May Cry Dante.
Don't buy it, let Capcom go under and go bankrupt.
Maybe then the next person in charge would treat their fan base better.
Godmars290  +   502d ago
No, pretty sure during their last stock meeting, they blamed fans for the general failure of the new direction of the RE series. Said that we were too old.
Sevir  +   501d ago
I thoroughly enjoyed DmC:Devil May Cry! The world made sense, it was cohesive, and the characters gave some pretty believable and meaningful performance!

The pacing was great, and the combo system while simple did feel pretty rewarding when attempting ing the cancels and reversal counters!

NT + Capcom please make it happen on PS4... A DmC:Devil May Cry 2 at 1080 60fps PS4 on Panta Rhei, or UE4!
sonic989  +   502d ago | Well said
advice for capcom :
Delete that WESTERNIZED style and story all together and return to the main thing master it evolve it .
other than that thank you
Twiggy  +   502d ago
.. We still need a game with Sparda as they main character, the prequel of prequels, :(

I want a Devil May Cry not a DmC. I know some people thought it was good, and I agree TO AN EXTENT, that being that I see WHY some people might like it a bit, but this was not the Devil May Cry I have known since RE Code Veronica's demo disc.
I don't need another video showing the similarities either (whoever posted that last time, thank you but that's not my point). Please just bring back the series Japanese roots, white haired Dante (by white haired, I mean the ORIGINAL Dante attitude, Ruben Langdon, the calm collect DANTE...not DUNTE with white hair) and lets have some devs that actually have a clue about the series this time.

I say give it to Platinum Games....

Presentation easily goes to DmC, the concept of limbo being the demonic dimension sells that verse so well (are we going to get a angelic limbo this time?).

Gameplay however, easily goes to Capcom. DmC was fine, but I want DMC gameplay when I play Devil May Cry, not Heavenly Sword 2.0 (although I would love a new Heavenly Sword Sony).

Combine the two and we have the best DMC yet, IMO.

It would be best to offer two skins so gamers can play as Old Dante and New Dante so there's no complaints. Plus I like both of them.
CryofSilence  +   502d ago
Emo May Cry. ;)
ABizzel1  +   502d ago

I'm hoping for a hybrid of the two 80% original, 20% new. DmC brought some good ideas that sell the believability of DMC. Limbo just makes sense and should become part of the franchise from now on, demons in control of politics (makes sense in the real world too), angel / demon hybrid for more unique weapons (I enjoyed the angel weapons).

Other than that everything else can go back the way it was especially gameplay.

As long as Capcom is in control of the gameplay I'll be happy. If it's a definitive edition (which it likely is) I'm guessing 1080p @ 60fps + DLC. Hopefully they learn from Square's Tomb Raider incident and sell it for $40 as a GOTY edition normally would.
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   502d ago
slim are the chances for that, i bet its going even more casual this time.
-Foxtrot  +   502d ago
Maybe a DMC game thats actually a DMC game

dmc was crap, it was an inferior DMC game in every way yet it got better scores then DMC4.

I mean WTF.....sorry say what you want about my silly tin foil hat but something is going on there, especialy when all of a sudden the month before it came out journalists suddenly started to defend it despite not saying anything about it the 2 years it was being criticized. Oh don't forget the majority of big site reviews sounding all the same and talked more about the so called "haters" then the actual game it's self

Seriously they better go back to DMC and forget about dmc.

Ninja Theory should not be allowed it after what they did to it, they were so disrespectful.
ABizzel1  +   502d ago
Because it wasn't crap as you say.

I completely agree gameplay-wise it was nothing like a traditional DMC, but overall the game was still good and enjoyable. There were some good ideas there, unfortunately Capcom didn't do the combat (thus Heavenly Sword 2.0 was the combat) and Unreal Engine was used instead of Capcom's which resulted in many of the technical issues.

If Capcom can take DmC's ideas, with their own engine, bring back DMC gameplay, and offer both Dante skins for both fans then DMC 5 should be the best in the franchise.
sonic989  +   502d ago
off topic :
woow fox your comment is just perfect btw is that tails on your avatar just asking
on topic :
yeah i saw most of the reviews they were talking more about what the old ( whining ) fans will do when they see this or that , and didnt truly review the game based on what it did offer .
its simple personally i wont buy a DmC game i will buy a Devil May Cry game
-Foxtrot  +   502d ago

Thank You

Yeah exactly, thats what most of them said. I felt like the other half of the good reviews just forget what a DMC game was supposed to be like

Hey people can like it but when it's got something to live up to then you can't give it better scores then the last game which was better. It has a name to live up to

Oh and yes...it is Tails :)
vallencer  +   502d ago
It got better review scores then 4 because well, 4 was complete crap. The ONLY good thing about 4 was Nero. The whole game was just a backtrack of things you already did as Nero and they were worse as Dante. No devilbringer as Dante was the worst decision ever. I also understand he couldn't have that but why not give him something with reach to bring things close to him.

Oh and I'm a huge fan of the new DmC game but I also really like the old ones too so sue me.
DanteVFenris666  +   501d ago

Just had to add in Dante had a devil trigger In dmc 4. I think dmcs gameplay was the best, both characters were fun. But yea level design was poor on Dante parts because they were previous places
ZombieKiller  +   501d ago
@Abizzel: You say there were good ideas. Which ones were you thinking of?
I didn't see any good ideas come from DMC that weren't used already in the previous games.

Maybe the Angel/Demon weapons but honestly, with the enemies only taking damage from certain weapons, all that was doing was forcing you to play a certain way. Taking away from the freedom of combat.
We went from 60FPS to 30FPS
We went from clean crisp textures to dirty, slimy nasty ones.
Dante was easy to control, now he stumbles.
No lock on.

That's to name a few. To tell you the truth, I feel like we lost alot with NT making this one.
Rodney25  +   502d ago

CryofSilence  +   502d ago
Let the new Dante die and disappear.
noctis_lumia  +   502d ago

CryofSilence  +   502d ago
White hair doesn't change his personality.
Muffins1223  +   502d ago
Honestly besides the shitty script and characters in the reboot,the story was actually nice in it and the game play was fucking awesome.If they do make a sequel just keep the characters more like the last ones and a better script writer and it will be perfect.
GetRealOne  +   502d ago
What is not classic about the title from ninja theory? Perhaps you don't like DMC any more and somebody else is guilty. The Character looks like Dante, you can see it in Chapter one in the hair scene. The gameplay is totally DMC. The Game was nearly perfect. What you are complaining about?
Bhuahahaha  +   502d ago
lol reboot a reboot
RAAMzilla  +   501d ago | Well said
Forgive the apparent willy-waving, but having beaten every mission of every DMC with an S rank (excluding DMC2) I still found the DmC reboot to be better and more enjoyable than the classic series. Think what You will of Ninja Theory, but I felt that they delivered an excellent game.
Relientk77  +   502d ago
Sweet bring on another Devil May Cry
Hopefully they continue with the DmC storyline. This time it won't be outsourced but they can still follow that same storyline.
rezzah  +   502d ago
I hope they don't.

Bring back the original.

We still have unfinished business with Nero.
ZombieKiller  +   502d ago
Rezzah I would love that. I wish they would ressurect Virgil after DMC4 and create team attacks with Dante, Virgil, and Nero.

Then make in 3 player co-op.
Dante, Nero, Vigil tag team combos would be awesome.

Wouldn't really call 1.4 million copies sold bad though Capcom obviously expected more

I'm fine with either style. Love these hack-'n'-slash games.
Eamon  +   502d ago
I guess the real question is whether Capcom made a profit or loss, and if it was a profit, was it significant enough?
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   502d ago

noctis_lumia  +   502d ago
it is bad considering heavenly sword a exclu game same genre and unknow sold better than dmc
DanteVFenris666  +   501d ago
Dmc 4 if I remember correctly sold 4 mill. They were doing the reboot to broaden their audience,. So it was a total fail
sonic989  +   502d ago

but guess what they got the opposite LOL .
well i wont get too excited about this rumor in case they use the same style again because that would make it an automatically ignored game for me

No. Like it or not there are New Dante fans who will complain at the switch to Old Dante.

Nevermind that Capcom never really help that argument by switch back and forth between old and new in cross promotions.
sonic989  +   502d ago
hi Mr.CEO of capcom oppps its not you.
Capcom knows what they should do old dante sold more so in terms of business they should return to that style but evolve the game to make it more interesting for gamers
Godmars290  +   502d ago
Literally just saying, as someone who didn't like New Dante, that people will complain if he doesn't show in the next game.

Just like I was pointing out new Dante was in Sony All Stars, while old Dante popped in Street Fighter and is no going to be in some DW clone.

Ad if anything proves that Capcom doesn't know f*** all that they're doing it should be almost everything they've done this console gen. From MML3 to DMC: DmC.
sonic989  +   502d ago
i agree capcom were clueless this generation .
-Foxtrot  +   502d ago
Well those new fans are the minority

Theres actually DMC fans out there and we were here first.

You don't change a franchise into a shadow of it's former self and let the new fans it's brought it dictate where the franchise should go next. They only like it now because it changed and it was more accessible to them....they didn't actually like DMC for what it was

It's the same with new Resident Evil fans, if you started to like it with RE5/RE6 then your not really a RE fan.
madcowz64  +   502d ago
I really hope it's a sequel but if you read the last few sentences they mention it could possibly be a definitive edition which might be cool but I'd prefer a sequel.
WeAreLegion  +   502d ago
I really liked DMC, but Devil May Cry 5 needs to happen. It's better. It's more popular. It's easy money for Capcom, if they do it right.

The question is... Does Capcom have a team talented enough and who respect this series enough to make a Devil May Cry 5?

I'm doubtful. :/ I would trust Platinum, but Kamiya seems to have lost touch with his former self.
Roccetarius  +   502d ago
Itsuno would be able to do a DMC 5 game justice. Not that new generation, western baztardization of a game.

It truly shows how bad development can go, when you outsource a game.
darren_poolies  +   502d ago
Yes please, a sequel to last years would be fantastic, absolutely love it. I'm a big fan of the old games and I thought DmC was great, far better than 2 & 4 and just as good as 3 so I would love Ninja Theory have another crack at it.
WeAreLegion  +   502d ago
Just as good as 3?

You're dead to me.
SpiralTear  +   502d ago
I'd be pretty surprised if the rumored new Devil May Cry is another DmC. I kinda figured that would be some one-shot detour and then they'd revisit old-school Dante and his PS2-era pals.

I didn't really have a problem with DmC, but I never interpreted it as the future of the series.
DivineHand125  +   502d ago
I Don't care what those other guys who did not play the game say release DmC 2 because I wan't to see in Angel Trigger form. DmC added more possibilities to Dante where Dante was originally a half human half demon but in DmC he was half angel half demon who could use both demon and angel weapons. Please don't use the unreal engine this time and make the game 60fps then no one will have a valid reason to complain. Also for the fools who complain about his hair being black, at the end of the game after his devil powers awakened his hair turned white.

That would imply that Capcom actually LISTEN to their consumers! This could never happen, therefore the next game will simply be DmC 2, which hardly anyone actually wants, and they'll do their best to make the new "Dante" somehow even douchier than he was in the first game!

Mikefizzled  +   502d ago
Capcom releasing DmC on consoles with low install base? Nope. PS3 and 360 have to be in there for them to think about it.
LawlessSXE  +   502d ago
I'm guessing that this will be a return to "classic" Devil May Cry. Check the listing proper: https://oami.europa.eu/eSea...

It's about halfway down that page, and it's clearly a different listing to that of DmC. Never mind that this isn't really news as Capcom already said that they wanted to get a new Devil May Cry out in 2015, but no continuity was confirmed.

For me, I'm happy with either. The classic series had gameplay that was better, but DmC had a more appealing visual aesthetic and a MUCH better story, IMO.
Roccetarius  +   501d ago
The visuals were an eye sore in DmC, plus the story in that game was probably one of the worst attempts at it.

The originals didn't have the best of stories, but it was definitely better written. The games releasing out of order, and messing up the time line was due to developer changes.
staticdash22  +   502d ago
I'm also of the opinion that I liked the reboot more than the originals.

Here's hoping it's true
darren_poolies  +   502d ago
Not more than the first which is still of one the best games ever made. I think it's on par with 3, most definitely better than 2 and 4.
CrossingEden  +   502d ago
^ Considering that this is the standard of hack and slash gameplay that DmC established already despite the vocal minority that didn't even play the game in the first place, i'd be happy for a sequel. DmC was the best hack and slash this year and the video above proves it, no other hack and slash released this year gives you so much freedom for combos.

But you know what came out earlier and had more freedom than DMC.......
