Sony NGP: Devil May Cry dev calls PSP2 a 'clear shot at the hardcore'

CVG: Heavenly Sword and Enslaved developer Ninja Theory has told CVG that it's excited by the "high end capabilities" of Sony NGP (PSP2) - and that it considers the device a "clear shot at the hardcore".

The UK studio, which is currently hard at work on Capcom's reboot of Devil May Cry - dubbed DmC - has also joined millions of gamers in applauding Sony's decision to introduce twin thumbsticks to the console.

Too bad I cant say the same for mister Twilight Dante.

Zinc2793d ago

Adam Lambert? Oh, excuse me... I thought you were someone else.

stuntman_mike2793d ago

looks like his just been beat up in that pic lol.

visualb2792d ago (Edited 2792d ago )

the look you get if you go to a deathmetal concert with a Twilight Shirt and make up (as he probably did)

I do find the whole dishevelled look is [email protected]

they have a point though - NGP is looking pretty hardcore friendly

+ WTF? THEY AREN'T DMC DEV.

not the REAL DMC anyway, maybe EMO WILL CRY

Just when I completely forgot about Twilight Dante, he pops back up, and the rage begins to build.

ABizzel12792d ago

I actually want to see DMC at E3 this year, I'm keeping an open mind, but I do miss old Dante, maybe we can unlock him as an alternate costume.

Don't even tease! That would be fantastic. Such an underrated game.

George Sears2793d ago

They already had sequels in mind so who knows. Maybe Sony can pass the baton to someone else.

What about Sony Santa Monica studio?

pain777pas2792d ago

Here's the dillema. Another hack and slash for Santa Monica. Totally different universe but, it will be a GOW game with new aesthetics and motion gameplay (if the translate that which they can). Santa Monica should be able to do whatever they want at this point like Naughty dog who had no previous experience with a mature rated title and nailed it first time. Santa Monica making a teen title would be intersting to me. A completely new set of fans for their games. But you're right CTK Santa Monica is the perfect candidate.

Hedberg2793d ago

Heavenly Sword on this would be sweet and I totally agree it was greatly underrated....still one of my favorite games on the system.

sinncross2793d ago

I think the NGP si a great opportunity for Sony to look at older IP's and attempt revive fo them through sequels.

Heavenly Sword and Lair are two such examples... even older stuff like Medieval (if a 3rd for PS3 is not already in development) would be great. It is a shame to see some potential IP's from Sony's arsenal go unused.

Heavenly Sword: Resurrection coming to PS3/ NGP
After years of being Death by the Sword she swore to protect with her life , nariko was granted with new powers and a new opportunity to keep evil away from the unique powers of the sword , play as Nariko in this new revolutionary way to play video games being on your home console or your new portable machine , live the excitement , the plot , the characters and this unique new adventure , Nariko is back and she is even stronger than ever , coming exclusively to PS3/ NGP LMAO

stuntman_mike2793d ago

Kurisu2792d ago

I would love to see Heavenly Sword on the NGP! :D

"Devil May Cry dev"

Like hell you are . i'll never acknowledge it .

It's DmC :p

GSpartan7772793d ago

It disgusts me to when I read that.

Burning_Finger2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

Damn, I wish capcom would remake the orginal DMC on PS2 for PSP2.

The Original Dante must be weeping right now because of what NT have done to him. Dante May Cry (DMC)

Stealth20k2793d ago (Edited 2793d ago )

the 3ds is pretty hardcore too

and its sad and pathetic that people consider remakes or ports to be anything other than money grabs (nintendo included)

NeutralGamer2792d ago (Edited 2792d ago )

Sure Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid 3 is not for hardcores...

visualb2792d ago

wow...lots of insightful dots =P

true...but

red steel, the conduit and a few others are for the hardcore on the wii

doesn't make you automatically assume Wii is a hardcore console though does it <_<

NeutralGamer2792d ago

There may not be much hardcore on Nintendos consoles and handhelds, but they still are some LOL

And since does hardcore mean imba graphic?

For me Contra on NES is as hardcore as it gets
