Kotaku: Some hate it. Some love it. There is going to be a new Devil May Cry game called DmC: Devil May Cry, and the reaction has run the full spectrum. Time to ask the diehards.
reaction of japanese= I HATE the new Dante! :P
Reaction of western gamers: "I hate dante" Japanese devs are really out of the loop, they must have taken 1 look a twilight and assumed all western kids like that $#!+. I like males to look like males in games, and my females to look like females, something japan will never grasp.
Actually this game is being made by the European company Ninja Theory, who also made Heavenly Sword and the upcoming Enslaved.
Yeah, but they shouldn't go changing Dante. He's like an Icon for the past 10years or something..
They also manufacture Sony TV's in china...that doesn't make them any less Japanese.
Capcom is clearly going for a younger western, and therefore larger demographics. Problem is they are doing it at the expense of the established fanbase, which Capcom is assuming will still buy the new entry in the franchise. They are wrong! Many long time fans of DMC like myself will want nothing to do with it, and the game will flop so hard in Japan it's not even funny. This should be an entirely new game, not a "reboot" of a successful and acclaimed franchise. Heck, they could even call it the spiritual successor to the DMC series, as long as they changed the name of the game and the main character.
Ninja Theory manufactures Sony TVs in china? lol, I need to smoke what you're smoking.
At least they're still TV's that STICK to the design SONY created. I don't see them manufacturing "Sony Xianbo AiRen x550". -End statement
How is that relevant... I did not draw a comparison between China and Japan or of their products, I simply stated that a Japanese product is made elsewhere, much like DMC5...but that will not make it less of a Japanese product. @Eamon I was being generic, by 'they' I just meant that sony tv's are manufactured outside japan.
"I like males to look like males in games, and my females to look like females, something japan will never grasp." Exactly! You know there's something wrong when a male protagonist is cosplayed by women and they actually pull it off... >_<
"I simply stated that a Japanese product is made elsewhere, much like DMC5...but that will not make it less of a Japanese product" That is precisely what my example meant. China, Thailand, Indonesia can manufacture SONY's products and still be Japanese because the designs are FROM Japan/SONY. This is NOT the case with Devil May Cry as the design of Dante was handled by NT. Therefore, it is now A BRITISH product. The only "Japanese" aspect of it... is the game title. Nothing more, nothing less. -End statement
@Anarki An Icon to who? Dante and his games suck and blow compared to Uncharted 2! Oh and Killzone 2-3, and your mother.
Cosplayers don't necessarily mean hardcore fans. These are the people who watch the Anime, read the comic books and play the game on easy. Please.
We'll send death threats.
. That's really cute seeing cute girls cos-playing Dante & Vergil, lol. On topic, their reactions: "What a letdown! I was so disappointed." "We don't know much about it, though." "Is it a prequel? Is it a spin-off?" "His hair looks different!" "But I'm going to buy it." "I'm going to buy it, too." "I'm going to complain about it, and then buy it." "I'm going to complain while buying it." "I think all fans of the series are going to say they don't like it, but then buy it." "I might like it!" "I'm going to buy it new. I'm not going to buy it used." "It's good to have low expectations." "I have low expectations." "Yeah, I'm going to buy it." "Me too." --------------------------- I'd still buy it.
"I'm going to complain about it, and then buy it." That pretty much concludes it.
I'm the "I'm going to complain while buying it" type.
the new Dante is lame. it looks like some gay emo guy. i cant believe developers want to turn every character into some transexual weirdo like Square-Enix does. boycott this trash.
You'll offend some cross dressing cosplayers with talk like that, if you haven't got 6 gig of C.P on your HDD then you are doing it wrong in Japan. Androgyny for lyfe! *puts on a David Bowie CD on and sings drunken karaoke* http://media.ebaumsworld.co...
Have a bubble for making me laugh.
But that kind of attitude is the reason why some things in this world will never change.
Is that the name of the lead designer from Ninja Theory? http://i54.tinypic.com/16m9... http://lh6.ggpht.com/_38kPt...
. His name is Tameem Antonaides. Also the founder of Ninja Theory. The 2nd pic closer between him & the new Dante, though... And lol at the frankenstein.
haha, so this is possibly where they got his character design from.
"I'm going to complain about it, and then buy it." That is what I call taking it up the backside. looks this gen is filled with those kinds of people because developers are making bad decisions all over the dam place. No wonder I hate this gen, no complaining = titles are dying
You take Indiana Jones out of the Raiders series and what do you get? IDK, you tell me? Because it's not the same shit. You take the REAL Dante out of Devil May Cry, and what do you get? Well, I can say this much, it sure as shit might have the action and signature moves, but without its "Indy", it ain't shit. Explain that to me, folks? I for one WILL NOT buy it and I will still complain until us consumers get what we want. And guess what? I'M ALSO A COSPLAYER... >:0 My friend even made an entire DMC4 Dante cosplay herself and it looks F-ING AMAZING, and she too is in rage with this awful new Dante design... =___=;
If we spam capcom threads with Boycott Dante will be back soon.. 1 can dream am i right? cmon Guys lets do it ! WE MUST BRING DANTE BACK !!! Dante needs our help he is in pain as he watches that "THING"
Im With ya.
"Some hate it. Some love it." They make it sound as if people were truly divided about it , they are not , most fans dislike the new guy , and most of those who like it werent that much into dmc .
Exactly. It's not just the design, but nothing in that trailer made me think this was a DMC game. I don't think too many game franchise have dealt with something like this so you really can't compare. They've made so many changes to it that it's not recognizable anymore.
I'd say the only thing that felt similar was the dual guns. But that's about it.
I wasn't into DMC (I only played the 4th) and I still don't like the new one.
I didn't put this in my first post but I would just like to confirm one thing... I am MOT buying this game and that is 100% guaranteed! I've played every other DMC game but this one isn't worthy enough to receive any of my money.
not buying it either ... i dont bend to "peer pressure" for bigger profiled titles such as mw2 and cod in general ... i certainly wont for fake DMC .
I meant 'NOT' and not Ministry of Transport aka MOT lol
yep, I'm skipping this too. I wonder if enough people complain on the Capcom forums, would they decide to take away this project from Ninja Theory? BTW, I think the reboot is due to the ending in DMC2. It's the reason why DMC3 and DMC4 were set before DMC2.
This piece of rubbish will never ever be DMC in my eyes! My eyes hurt everytime I see this faggy piece of carcass pretending to be Dante! Screw Capcom! I'm not gonna buy this game and I hope the real fans should also protest with their wallets to let Capcom know that we don't want a Twilight DMC! We want the DMC that we fell in love with so many years ago!
why the hell does DMC need a reboot, of all games they have to choose. its like in DMC4 they were like "heres a new character you gonna play as his nam is nero" and us fans were pissed that dante wasnt in the game untill the middle and all you did was backtrack with em. and now there like "ok you guys didnt like nero very much so lets change dante into something else you might like"FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUU
I hope the story in this new DMC is just Dante having a nightmare. At the end of the game there should be a cut-scene which shows Dante suddenly waking up with sweat dripping from his forehead saying "Whoa! it was just a dream"
http://www.petitionspot.com... Someone posted this on Capcom's DMC forum. Like I said before, this game has potential, but it just shouldn't be called DMC.
they look like emos lol old and new it dont matter cuz the industry is gay
Ha the more things change the more they stay the same.
