Dante's Biggest Fans Weigh In On New Devil May Cry

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.

RockmanII72800d ago

Actually this game is being made by the European company Ninja Theory, who also made Heavenly Sword and the upcoming Enslaved.

Anarki2800d ago

Yeah, but they shouldn't go changing Dante. He's like an Icon for the past 10years or something..

Nihilism2800d ago

They also manufacture Sony TV's in china...that doesn't make them any less Japanese.

Information Minister2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

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.

DigitalAnalog2800d ago

At least they're still TV's that STICK to the design SONY created. I don't see them manufacturing "Sony Xianbo AiRen x550".

Nihilism2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

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... >_<

DigitalAnalog2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

"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.

@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.

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.

CobraKai2800d ago

I'm the "I'm going to complain while buying it" type.

menoyou2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

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.

Nihilism2800d ago (Edited 2800d ago )

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!
