The announcement of a new Devil May Cry game has everyone in a commotion. Is it the gameplay, the setting, the timeline? No, it's Dante's new redesigned emo look. GameZone takes a look at who might have inspired this redesign.
I actually dont care what he looks like, so long as the game is fun!
If they're gonna make me stare at him for 8-12 hours, they better at least make him likeable and not looking like someone that's swapped his dinners for cocaine!
So you rather look at a white haired emo for 10 hours, ok.
Weird, never seen a muscular emo before...let alone one with white hair...do you even know what an 'emo' is meant to look like? But let's pretend you even know what you're talking about: White haired muscular, cool 'emo' > black haired, malnourished coke fiend emo
If they changed his name, people might not hate the look so much. Hopefully the gameplay kicks ass.
I dont think its right to say its Capcom's Dante because that Dante from "DmC" is created by someone from NT.
Actually its capcom the one who aproved the design so its their fault 100%
that's emo done right... right?
By right do you mean totally drugged out and malnourished?
maybe there's a backstory for his drugged out looks? Maybe he's a coke fiend in the game and he has to have more to stay in his trance to eliminate foes
I really don't like this new Dante but if the gameplay is kickass I might forgive them a bit.
I'm not a fan of the DMC series, but I definitely preferred white haired Dante over emo Dante. Although some of those picks were pretty funny.
... Will we see him dancing like how Peter Parker does in Spider-Man 3..? :D http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Oh god....the horror >_< They ruined the franchise (talking about both spiderman and dmc here)
lol you defeat new dante by hurting his feelings XD Monster: You're Hair looks funny Dante:.....(Runs to his house to cut himself with his blade and accidently commits suicide) Game Over LOL
I agree with craazy, what matters is how good the game is. I don't know if anyone's done this sort of thing with game series before, but look at the James Bond movies.
James Bond had years to do that and if I'm not mistaken, MGM stated that that would be a thing that they do for the bond films, years ago. And I'm not too sure but the name James Bond isn't really their name (think Jason Bourne, that wasn't his real name)just a code name, so it makes sense. DmC. No, to me it's Capcom cutting ties with Hideki Kamiya and "trying" to appeal to the west and Europe
Hilary Swank from Boys Don’t Cry
The trailer set me in commotion about everything. I will never play this game again. 4 was my last one.
Like I said they better have kick a$$ gameplay, making a drastic change for a character 7-8 years established is... not a good idea to me as a fan. Now, if I was an exec at Capcom, this is exactly the publicity (more or less) Capcom wanted, they shook up the gaming world, with a title less known than Street Fighter and MvC.
The new Dante looks like he stumbled out of a cocaine bar and woke up on the side of the road 3 days later he looks digustingly awful ........ like LeShin said if I'm going to look at him on my 30" LG HD tv using a HDMI cable then dammit he needs to be more appealing to look at...... I'm not saying I wont get the game if the gameplay and storyline is bad a$$ but come on really why change Dante's look !!!!!
Do people even know what "emo" means? Was Peter Parker really "emo" in that scene? I think people just throw that out there without really know what it means, but I'm not surprised at that sheep-like behavior.
You'd think after Raiden, Nero and Cole you'd think game devs would know better than giving a character a face-lift with little to no warning. Offer some context why. Especially when they have established industry history.
For Cole a rumor was going around saying that his lighting powers de-aged him and Sucker Punch was going to go off of that.
Do you even know what a reboot is? There's no why to anything... There is no relation between the old and new Dante.
Guess they wanted to modernize the character? All those images and comparisons were pretty funny.
And the other Dante looked awesome????! He had white hair, guys! And in DMC 3 he didn't wear a shirt.
kratos doesn't wear a shirt, leonidas doesn't wear a shirt
Yeah... Tell that to the THOUSANDS of girl gamers out there who fucking LOVE him... The "REAL" Dante is fucking AWESOME!!! >:0 It's easy to tell who's been a fan of DMC and who isn't just by reading through all the comments. *sigh*
Old Dante = 2001 emo style. New Dante = 2010 emo style. Both are not really cool, I'm just curious about the gameplay.
Not that I dictate these things, but isnt Emo a little outdated?
I really dont know what to think about this at the moment....
I'm all for reboots, but only when they're done right. I'm already in disagreement with this new design for Dante. It didn't look like they were trying to reinvent the character more than just make it appeal to the greatest number of people or what's deemed trendy now. With Raiden, they took a androgynous V.R.-trained soldier and turned him into a deadly cyborg ninja you don't want to mess with. Good on you, Kojima! With Dante, it honestly looks like they're changing their target audience completely by making Dante's design appeal to people who love everything emo, Twilight, et cetera. Yes, one can argue that the point of a reboot is to get more people to look at the series, but alienating the original fanbase is not good business. The "grown-up Eddie Munster" comparison made me laugh the most in the article, I have to say!
new Dantes is gay...periodddddddddddddddd
the disagree here is gay too
Im just waiting for the Devil May Cry movie
What in the world? What was wrong with the old Dante? I don't think this re-imaging is necessary.
that new thing they call Dante is sad Im sorry i dont care for good the game play is Im not Buying this Game i been a DMC fan for a long time from the games to the Anime and to see what they did to Dante is just sad im all for a reboot but this is just a kick in the face what would you say if they reboot Batman and gave him an all pick suit how would you feel
He looks like Hilary Swank and not in a good way. Time for Capcom to follow Sucker Punch's lead and go back to the drawing board.
I'm really not sure what to say here. As a guy, I don't care what he looks like. I don't play DMC because of Dante. I play because of the game. As long as Dante is still kick-ass and not a passive 'Emo' then the game will be fine. Change the look but not the attitude. It's all good.
