Didn’t like the new look to Dante in last week’s DMC reveal? Don’t worry: it’s all within reason, according to Capcom and developer Ninja Theory.
i saw nothing cool in the trailer for DMC least not character wise you also have to stop and consider that depending on where you live cool can be a very different thing for example this new dante looks for some reason it just looks so euro trash (no offense intended)and i can tell you that isn't cool in the least over here
Yea I think DMC came out last-gen & Dante was badass new Dante is wack. In my mind DMC is dead to me some ppl would agree with this new game the way things are going
Seriously, Ninja Theory, stfu and gtfo.
Actually, if one can believe the article at Kotaku, Ninja Theory only changed the character by a small degree, but CapCom said: "Do something extreme. Risk to make us angry." http://kotaku.com/5644446/s... So stop bashing Ninja Theory for doing what they were specifically asked for. Release your anger on Capcom if you must.
The fact that "dante" looks exactly like the Ninja theory director makes it easier to blame them. Also, they were the ones who ultimately made the design.
I hope there's a release for DMC HD Collection for PS3 and it outsells this DMC reboot. Seems like NT/Capcom don't have much interest in what the fans like, and are more interested in broadening the target audience (at the expense of it's existing fanbase). From the looks of it, they're marketing it towards teenage girls who love sparkly vampires.
^ lol, you mean the "fangirls" who drool at Nomura's FF character designs and spend all day imagining disturbing fantasies about Cloud, Sephiroth, Zack and Genesis without even playing the goddamn games.
They need to listen to their fanbase instead of telling US what WE want!"
Ninja Theory is really getting on my damn nerves lately. They act like their the best devs out right now. After playing enslaved i have no hopes for DMC. Enslaved is just Uncharted 2 meats heavenly sword.
As much as I agree with you, I should say Uncharted meets Heavenly Sword sounds delicious! LOL
not when you badly copy the bad parts of uncharted platforming sections.
...and Ninja Theorys comments as of this year have totally gotten on my nerves as well. I refuse to buy anything they put out. They spout of this garbage about what's not cool anymore yet we have retro games dropping every damn month and games that have been produced pretty regularly over the last 10 years selling like crazy but they have YET to really prove themselves this generation with anything besides Heavenly Sword. Ninja Theory isn't cool anymore deal with it!
Enslaved is a poor man's Uncharted Drakes Fortune meets Heavenly Sword.
Heavenly sword has a better combat system tho. Nothing against NT, but yeah they are annoying. Regarding DMC, I wonder what engine they will be using. DMC is a 60fps game, Enslaved is choppy, I dont think it goes above 30fps. So judging by Enslaved UE3 wouldnt be used for DMC. Hope they dont turn DMC in a slow 30fps game. I'll be totally pissed.
he comes off as more sinister and troubled. I don't like his jacket and hair though. Would look cooler with short cold black hair instead of the 'josh harnett from holloween h2o' haircut
hahahahaha these bitches be trolling this just in ninja theory is on my do not like list thats like saying cars that were cool in the 60s arent cool anymore when the 60s were one of the best years for car deign most of all cars to day are based on those designs i mean come on talk about heavenly sword like it was a mistake come out with enslaved practically copy and paste nariko into that game fighting moves back drops etc with slight changes and now change DANTE into NOT dante and unlikie cole from infamous im upset by this
I'm European and not all Europeans look like that, you can't judge a whole society like that. And the best way to resolve this issue? Just have the old Dante as a FREE downloadable skin and add some other ones as well. And Ninja Theory are there any plans for Heavenly Sword 2? I would be interested in HS2. Imagine HS2 with online co op. It's clobbering time!
this game is going to FLOP so hard capcom will regret not listening to us! one of the reasons DMC is so huge is because of Dante and Virgil! capcom needs to understand that the fans know a hell of alot better then they do in terms of WHAT WE WANT, HOW THE FUK COULD THEY SAY THEY KNOW WHAT WE WANT WHEN WE DONT WANT THAT!!!!!!!!!
I hope this game flops, it will teach Capcom a lesson.
Damn the new DMC looks stupid; i found the trailer boring as hell. From the trailer it seems the story might also be retarded. Sh1t i don't want to play as an even more emo version of Edward from Twilight.
I WANT THE OLD DANTE BACK. This guy looks awful. If the action was like that and we had the real Dante, okay then. But what the hell, this guy is terrible looking.
What it's September??? So their serious?
naw they are just late
You have got to see this picture. http://s7.aks98.com/images/... (look closely)
Everyone, your opinions of what is cool are totally off....Just stop having an opinion and accept whatever they say! /S
“But, you know, what was cool 12 years ago – I think that was when the first game came out [It actually came out nine years ago for PS2 - JC] – isn’t cool any more." What was cool 12 years ago aka 1998 SNAKE and today Snake is cooler than before... without looking like an EMO They have taken everything from Dante and made him a EMO...
but this new dante isnt cool at all.
Even the old Snake is kickass compared to emo Dante. I thought they were asking for suggestions? They did not make DMC and even Kamiya does not approve the new Dante. Just give us our old Dante back please!
. Leon & Chris too probably concerned about the Resident Evil reboot...
Poor Dante. He looks like he's about to cry. ._.;
'euro trash' How dare you compare my french dustbin to that kaweeeeer Dante.
You tell me... Last time I checked Twilight, Emo songs and other melodramatic crap cames mostly from USA.
When did Emo's suddenly become cool? Angry teenage nerds where never cool. A quote from the article "We had a shirtless version of Dante, with just suspenders. That went nowhere" WTF & Capcom didn't fire them after that concept. N.T. couldn't get transvestite Dante or D in but made sure they got an equally [email protected] character, thanks. (/s)
I like emo fashion styled girls...
Thats just bullshit they dont even know the definition of cool. I guess if you make a character that looks like the producer its cool.
I don't like this new makeover on Dante. :(
So this suddenly became uncool ?
That music did. But Dante didnt ;)
. Is "smoking" considered cool for him then? I actually support Hideki Kamiya's old Dante about a NON SMOKING-cool-male character. /: ( Smoking is a waste of time, money, and health. I thanked GOD I never smoked in my life.
Dante kicks the asses of 100 demon's only to stop for a moment to cough up a lung. Yeah, good look!
smoking was cool "in the past" when snake was using it to look out for traps ,it isn't cool anymore ..
So making millions and selling millions like the Devil May Cry games have done in the past is uncool now? I want this DMC to flop hard! Everyone go to this FaceBook page. Get millions of people to sound off against this debacle! Power to the players! http://www.facebook.com/pag...
No Ninja Theory, a good character design stands the test of time. Like Dante did.
Remember all the fuss about Nero? Eeeeeeveryone hated him... Doesn't look so bad now, eh?
Is that a joke? Nero complaints were NO WHERE NEAR this one sided. Practically 99% of everyone hates this new Dante.
Read below comment (11.3 by Eamon).
Loadedklip, he meant that having Nero as a main character again would not be as bad as this new Dante.
I didn't have a problem with Nero, I liked him, it's this terrible Dante now......
I also didn't have a huge problem with Nero... well after they announced you get to play as Dante during the second half of the game ;)
be careful NT wat u say out of your mouth, it can backfire in your face.
that's a pretty shitty excuse if you ask me...
the main protagonist of Enslaved,isnt exactly 'cool'.This is ridiculous.So,Edward Cullen Sparda is cool?insane...
the protaganist from enslaved looks like a fucking idiot. Like one of those guys in their mid thirties trying to rock a pop culture ugly ass fad hairstyle. Every time I see him I want one of those robots to buzz is hair. Seriously it looks stupid
In other words: "Emos were not cool 12 years ago, but now they are. We thought it could sell a lot better if we turned one of the most iconic game characters ever to a Twilight inspired, weed smoking emo. Teens will f#cking love this."
Anyway we can stop this from happening??? There has to be something we could do!! I mean.. this guy obviously has no respect for the gamers opinion, so who is he making this game for? Are they so stubborn that they cannot listen to the opinions of all the fans of the franchise??? If anyone has an idea of something we could do please say something. MaideninBlack posted a link to a facebook page up there, but that looks a little indirect, like the "Die Bobby Kotick" pages. We need something more solid, like a signed petition or something.
And Twilight is? My concept of cool must be F'ed up!
No your concept of cool is fine. Twilight was never cool. From what I hear, the vampires sparkle....That ain't cool.
“If Dante, dressed as he was, walked into any bar outside of Tokyo, he’d get laughed out" lol!!! If this new Dante walked into a pub here in the UK, the women would shun him for looking like a crack addict and the guys would probably beat him up and take his beer money! “What Devil May Cry did when it launched was it brought everything that was great about action cinema like the fashion, music – it was like a cultural melting pot – and I feel like now, for Devil May Cry to have that same impact, it needs to draw on new things" Does anyone here dress like the new Dante?? Here's a better question: Would anyone here want to be/look like the new Dante?? Since when was it cool to be REALLY skinny, crack addicted and look like you haven't had a bath since the launch of the Atari 2600?! I really don't know what 'fanbase' they are looking to appeal to. I've been reading that a lot of people think he looks like a 'Twilight' character...I'd wager that majority of the people who buy these sorts of games are not 'Twilight' or 'Emo' fans :-)
I think Ninja Theory are trying to pass the message that "Drugs are bad for the kids, but smoking is okay".
Looks like if I buy it I must buy used because I want to be cool.
I don't really care much for DMC, so don't have much personal investment in the character of Dante. A shirt is always a net-positive on a dude. I do however think that new jacket is ridiculous and that mustache is faggy. Lip hair like that has never been cool.
The whole article is already biased. It only lists everything that lets Ninja Theory look bad. If you read the article about the same thing on Kotaku, you actually get what CapCom said (by CapCom no less) and that is that Ninja Theory only changed Dante to litte, so they said: 'No, do something extreme. Risk to make us angry.' And that is what they did until CapCom was happy. http://kotaku.com/5644446/s... So it is fine that you don't like the new design but don't hate on NT alone. For me it is pretty much ok, because i didn't like the old DMCs but i perfectly understand you being unhappy about that. Even if i am ok with the new design, the smoking part is annoying - smoking has never been and will never be cool. Also i hate the Twilight-Vampires as much as the next guy, but i am willing to look at the final product before judging.
It's cool that the developer/designer guy looks like the new Dante.
some of you guys are too much, flipping out over a character redesign. You're acting as if they changed the game play compared to the previous titles. Like it's a first person shooter now rather than a 3rd person action game. People get a grip please...seriously. And you guys really need to read the articles thoroughly. Ninja Theory was told specifically by capcom to completely and radically redesign Dante! Now if capcom told them that, then that's what they did. If any of you guys ever worked in the design field and have been told to redesign something, you don't come back and show a slightly tweaked version. You come back with something different but that still keeps the integrity of what your redesigning. Now if you sit here and say that the new Dante doesn't keep the integrity of the original character ie. 2 guns, giant sword, over the top action, demon slayer, bold attitude etc. Than i truly don't know about some of you guys. I for one know I'm gonna play this game, because it does have the integrity of a DMC game, not playing it because of his different "look" is a silly excuse to miss out on this. Especially if you're a fan of the series. And i sure as hell know you guys didn't play those games only because you liked the way Dante "looked"!
Disagree. How can you say you know you're going to play this game? You haven't seen ANY real gameplay! Having seen any review builds... just one trailer! For all you know, it could actually be crap lol The devil may cry fans have valid opinions because they saw the trailer and can comment on the way the character looked because at the moment, that's all there is to see. Also, I don't think its whether people played the first Devil May Cry's because people liked the way Dante looked. But I can tell that a lot of people won't play the new DMC if they hate the character design. If character design wasn't important, like you make out, then answer me this: Why did they bother to change it?
