Hideki Kamiya, creator of the Devil May Cry series, doesn’t seem too fond of Ninja Theory’s new take on protagonist Dante.
they turned his beloved creation into shit.
When franchise reboots go wrong. Shit looks... well, like shit.
He looks a little flamboyant if you know what I mean.. with that haircut and the way he smokes the cigarette.
+bubble for epic comment
I dont think anybody is to fond of the new dante
twilight fans are
Let's see how bad the destroy this franchise. I hate reboots, for games or movies or TV shows. DMC was a great series(if you take out number 2) and now I don't even know if I'll get this game.
I have already lost my faith in Capcom with this crappy reboot. He looks like a hobo, smokes likes homo and stinks like an emo!!
and who the hell in their right mind thought that this new Dante is any better than THE Dante we loved so much?? IMO reboots are for when a game became stale and downright boring but what went wrong with the series was Nero and the pokemon-like enemies!! what the hell was they thinking putting up colorful clown monsters as enemies? monsters are suppose to be scary, not fvcking POKEMON!! it's like Capcom went the Ubisoft route with PoP and we knew how THAT turned out! I'm 100% feeling that the new Dante is GAY as hell! that's like a b1tch slap in the face for Kamiya san and I really feel for him! RIP Capcom
No intelligent life form on this planet is fond of the new Dante. I'm going to laugh so hard when this game flops.
I didnt realise a single game character design held the balance between a hit and a flop
lol, Quagmire, Dante made a lot of us LOVE Devil May Cry. Of course, the gameplay was just awesome. This time it's not made by the same developers (who are now Platinum) but made by Ninja Theory.
True, but the character design is just the tip of the iceberg. It symbolizes a radical departure from the franchise's mythos and style, that I'm not sure was desired by any fan. I certainly don't remember asking for it. It looks like a completely different IP! Bottom line, throughout the years DMC has established a fanbase that came to expect a very specific type of gameplay/presentation/style/ experience from the franchise. This is not it. This is NOT it!
Resident Evil 2 Devil May Cry Okami Viewtiful Joe Bayonetta you can't get anymore genius than that
This pretty much confirms our assertions. First, Shinji Mikami refuses to PLAY Biohazard 5/Resident Evil 5. Now Hideki Kamiya is not to fond with this...... "Twilight-may-cry" character. I see a VERY strong pattern here. What's next, the Street Fighter creator leaves and capcom sends it off to the "westernization" factory? -End statement
Did this franchise really need a reboot? What was wrong with the old Dante? One of the greatest characters in gaming imo. I'm not too fond of ninja theory taking the reigns for this either, i don't think they can really make a great technical action game. Heavenly sword was pretty stiff in terms of action. I hope they prove me wrong.
I agree. I'm not too fond of him either. But I do like Ninja Theory and will give it a try.
Nobody is... Honestly i never completed a Devil May Cry game but I know what Dante looks like and what he's supposed to be and this is not how he looks like or supposed to be
is this supposed to be a twilight game? Because it looks like one
I hope they doesnt Do anything with story.Dante is a half demon.It will be complete shit if they make a half vampire
Please. I hope this motivates him to come to an agreement with capcom and work on the next DMC title. As far as I know Capcom still owns the IP of DMC.
Or...you know, work on this and bring back the real Dante.
He looks like a borderline zombie. Who's idea was it to change Dante...seriously wtf. There was nothing wrong with the old Dante, AT ALL, why change him???? Dante had swagger, this dude looks like something that just crawled out of the ground.
Poor Hideki-sempai T_T Dante can't be dead he just can't be!! he has to go back down to a deeper level of hell and fight Virgil where we finally get the shock of seeing him having to act and fight seiriously! that's whats supposed to happen!! that's whats supposed to happen........ WAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!! Screw you Crapcom Screw you Ninja Theory and keep your f***ing theories to yourself! they stagnated Onimusha and now they write dante off! I hope the game's a colossal fail!!! that'll show em!
RIP DANTE 2001-2010
RIP DEVIL MAY CRY 2001-2010
RIP DEVIL MAY TWILIGHT 2010-2010 yep, this will flop.
I dont like him either, but if the gameplay is good then whatever, ill give it a shot.
Gameplay looks like that vampire dude from twilight flying around if you ask me.
Ugh, every time I see that trailer, I want to punch that emo kid in the face. I still cannot believe they ruined Dante. Now, this definitely ain't on my must buy list.
*facepalm* what the fuck Ninja Theory.
"Devil May Cry creator not too fond of new Dante" No shit, anyone with a sense of sight hates new Dante.
try to change Kratos from God of War,and lets see how David Jaffe will react,[email protected]@,motherf$%$#,its normal he doesn't like it but what can you do,still i never judge a book by its cover,so lets all wait and see how the final game will be
New Dante is ok,.. ( he is a bit to thin and to young,.. makes him look like a junkie,..) Old Dante has 1-dimensional personality , he is cocky and arrogant,.. that is it,.. And to people that say the new one looks emo-gay ,.. maybe is punk-rock-rebellious ,.. and added some psychological depth to the character,.. Only think that bothered me about the new one was last 8secs of the trailer,.. the way he smoked,.. wanted to break his fingers off,.. fagget,. smoke like a real man ,.. like Snake,.. or vanquish dude,.. And to say the original is not a metrosexual,.. he more gay than a new one,..
I can see alot of people are fond of familiarity, thats why y'all think GOW3 and MGS4 were so great. I myself believe things should evolve, if it wasnt for evolution we would still be sitting in caves smashing each other over the head with bones and clubs
This is not EVOLUTION! This is an ABOMINATION!!
Agree!! People who say its okay to change everything about DMC aren't fans! What the point? The only thing left with DMC is the name of the series and the name of the character. If you changed this game's title no one would even notice that this is a DMC game! Don't fix what ain't broken! Edit: I felt the same when they "Americanized" Godzilla. If that's evolution then I'd rather be stuck in my comfy cave.
because it was part of a trilogy. KEYWORD THERE BEING TRILOGY. and the new god of war whenever it comes out will evolve its commmon knowledge
Well the game is still far off SO NT still has time to bring good ol Dante back! NT, please bring Dante's old look back and take this ABOMINATION back to where it came from.
I just don't want Ninja Theory to keep working on it, ever since I heard the rumors about it being developed by them a couple months ago, I knew there was gonna be something I wouldn't like, and it turns out I was right, I wish Kamiya to go back to the series, but he ain't with Capcom anymore, unless they make a contract or something, the character of Dante is very well established, 4 games, 1 anime, special guest character in a RPG, appeared in PS2 versions of Veautiful Joe, and is in MVC3, all of this, and stupid Capcom and Ninja Theory completely changing him, morons!!!!!
Nobody likes this Crap .Change is comming soon.You can bet on that
Do you know why I pulled you over? No? Well, you misspelled a couple of words, and the Grammar Police don't take fond in that. I'm going to have to write you a citation for your grammatical error.
should have a male lead who looks just like the original Dante and show NT and Capcom how it is really done, Kamiya's new character would kick the shit out of this twilight cash in now apparently British piece of shit panzy.
WHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Nice pic dude! +Bubbles!
that is EPICly funny! +bubbles!
LMAO!!! Bubble +
I love IT!
I can bet if the final game comes out with this new Dante, and there be a cheat code to use the old Dante, everyone who plays the game will use this cheat code and never now what the new Dante looks likes! lol
...I wasnt.Capcom just killed DMC for me.. Just like they did Resi...basterds!
Seriously misguided reboot.
There is already a face book for the "I hate Dante" crowd. Maybe if we can generate enough buzz they'll wise up like the Infamous 2 Cole.
i have nothing wrong with a revamp.. not been huge fan of DMC so i can see why ome hardcore fans are disapointed, although nobody knows the reaon for the character re-design.. not until you know the full story details behind the game.. maybe its younger years(then it wouldnt make sense for him to the look the same) maybe for this game hes been sent to some alternative world r something :/.. im sure theres a reason other than lets change him for no reason lol
"not been huge fan of DMC " maybe that's why you don't understand everyone cries of anger toward this BIG change
I wonder how would this guy feel if his own favorite game and character had this much mutilation? @xalmostpro You're not a fan so you have no right to say it's okay to have these changes.
i hate the new dante
Sorry but i hate the new Dante. Why do developers do this? just improve the gameplay, Dante looked fine before why mess with it.
I wont buy this emo bitch give US ORIGINAL DANTE @#$% CAPCOM!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well DUH !? Blame Crapcom for their money hunger trying to appeal to western market and Ninja f***ing Theory to screw up one of games most great icons !
Of course he dislikes it. The old Dante was a gaming icon to many fans who was very appealing and very awsome and now hes an ugly brain eating blood sucking vampire zombie!!!
I dont trust Ninja Theory, 1 mediocre game is all they have done not enough to carry the weight of such a relevant video game franchise IMO, I guess the same could be said about mercurysteam and castlevania but so far castlevania looks great and DMC does not, I could be wrong, we'll see... but the new dante is fugly and thats a fact
Really? No sh*t. The new Dante looks like some faggy vampire who didn't eat in ages. I would be all for a reboot of the series in the sense that it becomes more serious and darker.
Hey capcom, you know the bullshit dlc you gave us all the time? Now is the time to use this strategy, give us a character skin of the old dante as dlc, then maybe ill buy the game
He & Mikami felt they are bigger than the company who made them,they left their beloved franchises and fans to a new devs,RE-DMC-Okami-Viewtiful Joe-God hand all these Superb titles suffered the unknown future because of their greed to be independent devs. By the way Kamiya Bayonetta's design wasn't good either.
Kamiya and Mikami didn't own the licenses to their creations. And also, its well known now that Capcom went behind Kamiya's back while he was finishing up the first DMC game. He had no idea that Capcom had picked a new team to make DMC 2, he didn't know until a localization member went up to him to gather info about Dante and such. So don't blame Kamiya or Mikami. Besides, even if they gave DMC to Platinum Games, where Kamiya now works, he would have to change alot of stuff from DMC 2, 3 and 4. Since it didn't follow his vision of what DMC is for him. DMC 1 is quite different from the others in that it has a Castlevania feel to it. After the closing of Clover i guess Mikami and Kamiya felt Capcom was holding them back so they decided to leave.
That happens when a game is westernized. Street Fighter American cartoons all over again...
lol oh god not those!!! I remember my friend showing me them...and I just wanted to punch him afterwards!
The new Dante seems to be inspired by 'Emo Spider Man" from spider man 3.
He seems a little pissed off.
Yeah especially when he says "Whatever". But i think he's more disappointed then angry. He said "He misses Dante" and stuff like that.
