Devil May Cry 5 Director wanted to make a game that would appeal to Western audiences and saw "Avengers" as an inspiration.
I hate the whole "appeal to Western audience, Eastern audience, etc." line of thinking. As if your location has anything to do with what your interests are.
Just be yourselves as long as it's good. Look I'm going to buy weaboo games there known to be weaboo and interest me.
Oh god it's the PS3/360 era all over again. I thought we were over this
What makes them think they weren't appealing to a western audience before? It's a Japanese game made by Japanese devs, there is no need to move away from your roots, us westerners love Japanese stuff.
The more I hear about this game the less interested I get.
As if this type of thinking didn't almost bankrupt Capcom just a few years ago.
One good way to appeal to a mass audience would be to not have micro-transactions for XP.
You do realize we fell in love with DMC without the western influences, right? In fact, it’s when you try to appeal to the west that things end up crapping the bed...
To be fair, the first game was heavily influenced by the west. Dante himself was actually based a lot on the characrer Blade in the movie. But I completely agree with what you mean tho. I was so glad when Keiji Inafune left the company because of his push for westernization.
Aiming for our wallets with MT
That confirms that it will be garbage. Well, that & the art style being closer to DmC than the original DMC games.
