No matter how much you may hate the new punk look of Devil May Cry's Dante, keep in mind it could have been worse.
When developers Ninja Theory were asked by Capcom to come up with a new look for the star of a reboot of the popular action game, now known only as DmC, publisher Capcom told the studio they wanted extreme redesigns.
But Ninja Theory, perhaps worried about messing too much with so beloved a character in such a storied game, came back to Capcom with three or four new looks for Dante that were "maybe five percent improvements."
"We said, 'No, no, we want you to risk making us angry," lead DmC producer Alex Jones said in a recent interview with Kotaku. "We want it way out there and then we will walk the design back."
