Interview: Hiroyuki Kobayashi Talks Devil May Cry 4 Storyline

Wired News got the chance to sit down with Hiroyuki Kobayashi, producer of Capcom's upcoming Devil May Cry 4, at Tokyo Game Show last week. Read on to get some inside dirt on the game's story: from the secret in-game love affair to how Dante nearly got Nero's arm:

"We thought to put such a weapon on Dante in the early days, but because he can turn into a full demon and then back, we thought it would be strange that he would have just his arm change, so we left that part out of the earlier game. But in this game, with the new character, we had the opportunity to bring this idea to life; we wanted it to do something cool, so it's the Devil Bringer."

WHAT only 20 or so missions no way i though it was gone be much bigger than that, i hope it lasts me a lot longer than 15 hours, and i know the replay value for a dmc game is very high cuz i still play 3 and 1 but still i want the main story to be long

PSTAVY4071d ago (Edited 4071d ago )

all of them were in the 20 mission range i just hope the make the missions longer and where is Vergil

yea i think he did die but i know he got his arse kicked bad by Dante but it would be great for them to at least show him its like everyone elsse is back ie. Trish and Lady

Kenshin_BATT0USAI4071d ago (Edited 4071d ago )

He died like twice, once in part 1 (yes he was the guy who looked like sparta) and once in dmc3 i think, or did he just get his ass kicked?

@1.3 and he did die in one which took place after 3.

DemiseofPandas4071d ago

Yeah just his ass kicked in DMC3 if you can call it that... especially on DMD mode -.-

Like i said before, not interested. Typical japanese plot when they have a succesful franchise: Create a lookalike, with the same style, same type hair, uncanny ressemblance, same fighting style sword + gun, and yes same Demon hybrid. I dont know im just not interested in a Devil May Cry game without Dante as its main character.

picker3324071d ago

ahhhh why not ask about if Vergil is in it or not.Have to know!!!

Looks cool. Can't believe the interviewer asked such a stupid question about whether DMC4 would come to the Wii.
