Aims to "increase appeal, sales and audience".
Everything will change with time. But sometimes, change isn't good, and with Dante, although he needed some change, maybe a tweak in personality and more up-to-date style and ability, what Ninja Theory's done is totally outlandish and uncalled for. Listen to the fans.
So we can expect to see Dante coming out of the sea wearing nothing but a pair of swimming trunks?
next thing youll know dante will say.. Bartender-what drink would you like MR Dante? Dante-vodka Martini, Shaken not stirred! :/ GOD I WANT TO KILL CAPCOM
I just looked at the trailer again with the intention of giving new dante another chance and, nope, he still looks like a d1ck.
sean connery to roger moore to RANDOM GUY (who was in one of the best james bonds!) to I forgot but he was good too to Pierce Brosnan to Muscle Man basically, JAMES BOND ALWAYS HAD DIFFERENT LOOKS. because the series lasted longer than the acting lifetime of the actors... DMC is a videogame, and if I'm not mistaken, THE REAL DANTE WAS IMMORTAL! smh....bullsh!t reason =/
Well in the DMC anime, Dante asked for strawberry ice cream, so wanting a shaken martini isn't so bad...
I think it was a typo. Dante "inspired by Twilight series"
Damn, even I start to think they might went too far and I love new Dante's design.
Why not have Dante look older or just have an option of choosing different character skins? His new look is okay but his old look is better.
Well this is the first thing that striked into my head, that they are going to do a Casino Royal-like Reboot.
Devs simply won't get a reboot right this gen... At least not without fan feedback. Just look at InFAMOUS 2, with hairy new cole... They got it right after all the backlash, The Comic-Con Cole is new but still good for us already introduced to the series. But that early Drake rip-off with lightning bolt hero pants and stupid tatoos... What were they thinking?
The only redeeming factor in the DMC trailer was the music. Everything else was pretty... bleh. It's on my radar nonetheless. I've never really considered myself a fan of the series, but this one has potential I suppose.
Inspired by Daniel Craig's James Bond, huh? That was successful because they swapped Pussy Pierce for Kickass Craig. Ninja theory are doing it the otherway around, which is SO not appropriate.
I was giving the game the benifi of the doudt, but with that logic this game is going to stink :(.
When they see the sales and see how bad it flop i'll just laugh. I bet they do the samething Square Enix did with Nier. Japanese get their Dante and west get this twilight fag.
I sympathise with him too.
that reminds m etha twe need legend of dragoon 2 lol
Wow, that's a cool pic. Thanks for the link.
Poor Dante, I'm with you.
James Bond reboot sucked balls imo. It's not Bond anymore, it's a macho man that cries in the shower with his girlfriend or whatever. The action is good... but Danny Craig ISN'T bond and never will be. Similarly this ISN'T Dante and NEVER will be. If you're going to reboot a franchise do it like Nolan did Batman.
Craig is closer to the book Bond than any of the past actors. What now?
Don't really care about the books, Bond films were never meant to be 1:1 versions of the book anyway.
No, they weren't, but how can you complain about the character being different when it's closer to the original character and Bond has never had a "set character" in the movies?
Because all Bonds; Connery, Moore, Dalton and Pierce followed a persona that Bond stood for, if you follow the films there is no real change in BOND as a character until you reach the Daniel Craig versions. Admitedly all the actors gave a different expression of Bond but they were all sophisticated, brutal, secret agents, clever, quick-witted who loved women. The fact is that all bond parodys were so funny and easy to do because it's Bond. Quantum of Solace/Casino Royale are just action movies.
Its funny how they always forget George Lazenby...
Lol Bond has always have the same character for 3 movies then they choose a new one.
We're not that stupid. He was inspired from Edward Cullen!
They think this is gonna sell more? really capcom? REALLY? they're gonna be sorely dissapointed.
I dont care where the inspiration comes from . Imo people should be worried about more than them changing the model of the hero or not . This is gameplay according to ninja theory : http://i51.tinypic.com/oh4u... And no it's still like that in enslaved , with now as an extra dish platform phases with shiny object you can't miss . Imagine that clunkiness and floaty controls in "DMC" and cry . Trust me it will be there
wtf does james bond have to do with devil may cry, i seriously don't see how they didn't think fans would hate this new look
They come out and stay some stupid retarded shit like this.
You know why you were not happy with sales of DMC 4? because it didn't star Dante. You know the main character in the series that is just begging to be fleshed out storywise, but no, you ignored the fans and introduced and emo-tard. That is why it did not sell to you expectations and that is exactly why this piece of crap will not sell. It is no longer DMC and I am no longer interested in this garbage, DMC 1 is to this day my favorite game of all time and Capcom you have alienated fans that made the original so successful so much that, I no longer care about one of my favorite characters of all time. You know why, because it is not Dante. Fail.
it couldnt have sold better even with Dante only , with only GoW in the genre match et surpassing their sales . They were even actually happy about the sales It just a case of pure greed ... and panic over almost all their latest project failing , besides fighting games and dead rising case zero
Looks like a drug addict, alcoholic gay emo kid. Whoever came up with this design probably has some major mental issues. This is the worst character makeover in the history of video games. How dare they call this pice of shit Dante? It's FAIL!!!!
as long as the action is solid and the graphics are decent, who cares what he looks like. Stop being little girls,and complaining about everything.
I'm all for a reboot 'n' all, but as for destroying an iconic character just to remake him so that he will appeal to the teenage-vampire demographic is completely stupid. Now, I do actually like the punk feel of the new DMC, but this new "Dante" has to go. Pronto. Spiderman is getting a reboot with the movies. Now, what if they absolutely changed Peter Parker into an arrogant, fat, pompous douche, that also happens to be going through a vampire phase, just to gain new younger fans that don't even like Spidey to begin with, and shall only like it because it's the new thing, and they'll stop liking it when they grow up and ditch their idiotic phase. And what if they changed Spiderman's costume into a red & blue hoodie, and completely getting rid of an iconic costume. The fans wouldn't be happy. And I think this is what is becoming of Dante, I'm afraid (the attitude, coat, look). Point is: Change can is a great thing, I mean just look at Batman - but I'm afraid that what they've done with Dante is a complete abomination of the character. I hope that I am wrong about all of this, and they'll make this game great & that this guy named Dante will grow on me, but for now, I am not really into this game.
They have changed spidermans costume plenty of times lol. The most recent change they did for a while was the civil war spidey. And to be fair dude technically they didnt change dante. If you ga back and read their interviews they say that this is the same dante, just before DMC3 they explain why his hair is black, they explain where he gets ebony & Ivory ( and Im assuming why "In loving memory of Tony Red grave" is etched along the sides of them). He will apparently be the same Dante that we have always known (or so they say)..at some point. Which in a way kind of makes sense Dante Im sure he wasnt quite a badass at the ages of 16-17. I think we all should just relax. Not alot of info is known about the new DMC. Ill wait for the gameplay details (which is what Im now worried about)
meh.. dante had white hair as baby i doubt they can explain that part. this kid doesn't even look like dante tho. I mean unless he went through some serious plastic surgery theres no way they can explain dante looking nothing like he does in 3
For spidey it was that , mostly costumes , not a change of character (with the exception of the clone) . And notice how they always go back to the classic costume ... it's fairly obvious why it's bs , there is a portrait of dante and virgil even younger and they still have white hair . And he doesnt smoke , given his character he wouldnt bother with cheap tricks to looks cool like that , and he's got plenty adrenaline as is . It's a reboot that got very little to do with it , plain and simple . Stop trying to convince others and yourself that it somehow fits some continuity .
wasnt dante ONLY like 17-18 in DMC3?
Ok again let me state this Im not a fan of the redesigned dante personally more his mannerisms than his hair but -MAYBE just MAYBE There is a reason his hair is black with a little bit of white coming in. MAYBE his hair really is white he just died it black because hes confused about who he is or he doesnt like the fact that hes a demon. MAYBE this is when Dante went by the name Tony Red Grave, which is only breifly mentioned in the novels. MAYBE Dante looks completely different by the end of the game. MAYBE they did decide to completely redo the entire back story of Dante, that hardly existed in the first place. There could be at least a hundred or so reasons Ninja Theory/ Capcom decided to change it. But its done, this is the new Dante for better or worse. If you dont want to give it a shot then dont, there is always Bayonetta which is from the same creator. I dont really care for the changes myself, but they say they will explain it. So I will give it a chance because I like Devil May Cry. But I personally dont give a damn if you think it fits "some continuity" as you say, nor am I trying to convince you or anyone else here. Im simply stating that we dont really know a whole lot about the new DMC so stop complaining. Wait till we see more or they explain more of the story before you jump to conclusions. We have only seen like 2 minutes worth of cut scenes that haven't even shown gameplay. Its irrational. @ Unself Im not sure but I believe Dante was only 18 in Dmc 3.
screw you crapcom for messing up such a great franchise, no one wants to play with twilight faggy vamps or some western emo shit looking characters, give us the old Metal Dante, screw that techno/emo rubbish character
we should all sighn the petition, spread thw word http://www.petitionspot.com...
Last time I checked, James Bond, or Batmans evolution made the character "more of a badass", not more of a dickheaded crackhead!
this is decreasing sales and audience as far as im concerned
increase audience/sales my ass,how will it increase if the real dmc fanbase won't buy it?
All the Bonds have had something in common, Cool, debonair, Good under pressure, and ladies men. This Dante has nothing but namesake.
new Dante inspired by this 8=====D
I'm not a Devil May Cry fan, so I can't speak for those guys, but I don't mind a redesign. The problem is that if you're going to redesign an iconic character (or any character, really), you should make him better than the original.
