Here are some new details of the new Devil May Cry game straight from Capcom at E3
I really appreciate Ninja Theory efforts, but this no longer feels like DMC 2 me
it doesn't look like any DMC game... capcom says that the game going to have new world,new Dino and new style, so why not rename the game and make it a whole new ip?
I think it looks awesome :) Didn't know they re-changed the new character design though, sweet
Next level of fail.
Ninja theory failed with two games they released from gameplay aspect (Heavenly Sword sucks in gameplay) Thats what I worried about the most, and of course the Emo dante :P .
Nobody cares Sean....Nobody cares .... Oh wait, got that wrong Nobody cares Capcom.....Nobody cares
The game could play exactly the same, if not better, than the others, but the fans will still moan because they "ruined" Dante.
Pretty much this.
I agree that character design is the least of their problems. But NT have not exactly tried to win over fans of DMC. Anyway, looking at the E3 2011 trailer, it will be amazing indeed if they manage to get the gameplay to measure up to the original DMC's. They've got a long way to go.
bad news- its a reboot good news- "Fans of the previous games will be pleasantly surprised at who will be in the game" ^Vergil
Fans are upset at more than the fact that Ninja Theory transformed Dante into a crackhead. As someone below mentioned. Two of the big issues are with the framerate and that Ninja Theory is developing the game. Framerate - The Unreal Engine, being used for the game, is not really designed to run above 30 FPS. The only games that run at 60 FPS are the Mortal Kombat games which are limited to 1 on 1 fighting with simple backgrounds. Ninja Theory - They couldn't design a combat system to save their lives. The most recent trailer indicates that the combat system already has some glaring timing issues.
I was unaware of any framerate problems, i'll put that down to me being ignorant, and the combat system, i don't think it looks that bad, time will tell. I'm a fan of the series and i want this to be good no matter who develops it and how it's designed.
Exactly... Frame rate is a big issue here for any true diehard fan of DMC. NT even messed up with the music... :(
1st, changed that fuckin emo twilight Dante with the original Dante! than we're talked CRAPCOM!
It was actually Ninja Theory's design choice. I agree 100% though.
Under the direction of Capcom.
@deadlyfire well just like fun&gun said, it's actually capcom who wants NT to change Dante. and of all developers, why on earth capcom choose NT to develope DMC? why not choose Platinum Games???
I don't understand why Capcom felt the need to reboot a series that never needed to be rebooted in the first place.
Let me be honest. Every game I played by N.T. looked promising and had great visuals but the gameplay always felt boring after an hour or so... ....but that is my personal opinion. I think there wasn't a worst studio to pick for the next DMC. I would have let the professionals make the next DMC and let N.T. make something new, another mediocre title.
"Fans of the previous games will be pleasantly surprised at who will be in the game" Wow! Do you think Dante will make an appearance?
I understand your sarcasm, however you all need to calm your tits. His hair turns white, therefore he IS Dante. Happy?
@Quagmire So by that standard we can have a drugged out plumber, put on overalls and a red hat, and call him Mario?
Exactly....whats this about frame rates?? Because other than the combat in the trailer being horribly edited-how does it look bad?
No thank you. Ninja Gaiden 3 looks like crap and now Devil May Cry has been ruined....all my hopes rest with Devil's Third. Sigh... I dont know who that guy is in the trailer...but he aint Dante.
"Fans of the previous games will be pleasantly surprised at who will be in the game" Don't ruin Vergil too please...Dante is enough
Once again don't agree on the design of Dante either nor why they chose Ninja Theory as a developer, but one thing that still gIves me some hope is te fact that it's still Dante because it's Not a reboot but an origin story.
i dnt see anything wrong with this game and mabe they changed the P.O.S camera angle from the other games people only bitching because the girly white hair is gone cum on mofo's give them a chance
To the next low level
I am more concerned with the combat and with Ninja Theory developing the game than with the character design but why on earth do we need another protagonist with a mohawk/fauxhawk? In this generation it seems that you can bank on either the main character having a shaved head or a mohawk/fauxhawk. 'Originality' dumbasses, look it up!
Guys for first time they said the truth do u know how that easliy : Because next level it mean super saiyan. As we know Dante now don't need to turn to demon form and that stuff he right now just need to get angry and his hair turn to white color , that sound somehow he will become a saiyan and the next level is the super saiyan. Loool. Just why hackers didn't hack them yet ??!!
hahahaha well said
DAMN IT, why a damn reboot???!!! so devil may cry ended in the second one???!! because the time line. 3,1,4,2. c´mon i cant belive it!! so good bye nero, dante (yes...dante.) trish, lady, besides mundus (the emperor and the final boss) at the end of the first game said that he will return!!!! ive heard some people said that ninja thory doesent want a "cartoonish approach" and that the old dante looks like a "anime cliche"!!! so what??!! then if NT think that way so reboot everything then... just because devil may cry is funy and stylish that doesent mean its wrong!!!!
First Capcom decided to reboot the DMC franchise not Ninja Theory. Being that NT is being employed by Capcom they pretty much have to do as they are told. I believe the reason they are rebooting the franchise is because DMC4 was heavily criticized for being more of the same and not "Next Gen" (Not my words) I dont think theres anything with a reboot and Im not a person that believes that everything will go to hell if a few things get changed. That was a pretty breif trailer that still says gameplay a work in progress. Im willing to give it a chance because I love DMC and own them all.
that doesent change anything. no matter who had the idea of "reboot" because a reboot is a reboot. DMC 4 doesent look so dated to me, and there are many fans out there that think the same, im going to give it a chance because of curiosity, i hope they manage to make the story to fit well (if its not a total reboot) because dante always had white hair since kid. anyways lookin foward to the HD COLLECTION if it comes out (fingers crossed) :)
the fan in me will buy this game, as Ninja theory will craft an excellent story driven game, but that's it. story will be great. combat will be... slow not deep, and totally void of dmc dna, if we want a balls to wall action game, welled have to look for bayonnetta even though I didn't like that too much and ninja gaiden 3.
That title is one of the most confusing things I've read in a while...
