Original Devil May Cry Director Hideki Kamiya provided an interesting point of view on a new direction that Capcom could take with Devil May Cry 5.
Anyone remember DMC, not exactly the same thing we're talking about, but you get the picture.
DMC5 with no jump button? No thanks
Is this what you took away from that tweet? lmaooo
Yeah because the tweet was referencing just that specific thing lol smdh
lol really. Comprehension fail.
God of War was always an action/adventure game first and foremost. The combat is really fun and satisfying but far from deep. The new God of War should be fine as long as it can keep up the pacing and that action/adventure feel. Devil May Cry on the other hand was always about the "anime-style hack and slash combat" as Kamiya puts it. There would be outrage from the fans if they moved in a more cinematic direction -- you saw what happened when DMC simply removed some of the complexities that DMC4 introduced. It was still a hack and slash with SOME depth but the fans still went crazy. I love Kamiya and there's obviously a much bigger market for cinematic games these days than character action games, but I don't think the new game would survive the backlash from series veterans.
I'd rather just have the regular ol Dante from Dmc 1. But if I were thinking extreme, a more darker game at the level of the original Berserk anime. And when Dante swings his sword, someone dies and gets cut through. And Ebony and Ivory would be a cheese factory with the amount of enemies they turn into swiss from lead poisoning. But I'd still want him eating pizza.
Enen dmc1 remake would be amazing
Much prefer to keep the formula we know. It's the personality of the game.
Good thing he isn't in-charge. Itsuno-san elevated the series to new heights.
Stop dumbing down hack n slash games ffs. No jump button = no purchase
How can you even justify that? You haven't even seen gameplay in GoW yet you dismiss it because you can't jump? From what I remember (although platforming was a big part) it's called Hack N Slash, not Jump N Slash. God of War will be amazing regardless of a jump button or your purchase. You're screwing yourself on that one
Ummmm... the initial reveal was gameplay?
Nooo.... Please, just nooo....
He was being sarcastic guys...
Maybe just better production values? Keep the combat and make it better.
Wait wait wait... are we all forgetting 2013 darker/grittier emo style DMC reboot that got all the fans panties in a twist? Poor old Kamiya’s playing a dangerous game here!
He’s probably seen it and is trying to soften the blow
Lol, then why bother? If the devs want to try something new with an IP then make a spin-off. Don’t take what fans love and then completely change it, there’s a reason people like the game and it’s not because they want it to go into a different direction.
... didn't Ninja Theory already try that?
I hope not. Last time they decided to change the "style" of it look what happened. I say stay with the original (evolved) design. I like who Dante was becoming before Ninja Theory rubbed their taint all over him. "Dunteh" was a f----ing joke of a character along with most of the cast.
lol @ this kamiya man... so he wants only the switch to have a stylish action hack n slash game yeah? Well thank GOD he isn't in charge..
