New footage from Captivate 2012 for DmC suggests that the developers may have taken on fan feedback a little.
NT is just backsliding all over the place.
I don't think so. Dante now looks a lot like Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
NT never listen to fan feedback, they just mock us, its because of Capcom who have a lot at stake with this game that they cant afford to let it release midst fan fury
Why is his head so small?
The newer Dante does appear to be less emo. I'm glad that dodgy fringe has been shortened.
seeing him like that, i actually dont think he looks bad at all anymore. i could support this one. admittedly i still prefer the old one but he is solid now. in the end though it was/is irrelevant, i have planned to buy this day 1 since it was announced
Agreed. People have made too much of a fuss over the character design. As long as the gameplay is solid, why should we care? I've played every game in the series and it's not like I have any emotional attachment to the old design. He's a bit of an arse no matter what he looks like.
The gameplay looks a little slow paced though from what I've seen. DMC is usually quite fast paced so hopefully capcom can fix that issue.
One is a rendered proof of concept scene and the other is ingame almost 2years later...of course they wont look the same. No game developer comes up with a final character design at the beginning of a project, this is not news. oh and nice to see whiners creating articles like this one where they try to convince themselves their moaning had an effect on anything. Hope this game kicks ass.
The game may be good (NT is a good developer) but the fact that the DMC fanbase feel betrayed (for changing many things including the whole personality of the main character) is what it will make the game fail (at least with DMC fans).
it's a reboot after all
Whatever happened to original character designs? Nowadays characters from many games just look the flippin same, and what the hell is wrong with NT! why do their character models have yellow skin and what seems to look like skin rash? This actually looks like Enslaved which looked like crap. I can't believe we will never again get to see a game that has the same vibe, feel and atmosphere as DMC1,2,3 & 4. Oh well everything's going to shit and people are supporting it so what can we do?
first off DMC2 was the worst in the series and This dmc looks leagues better than that crap. Mikami didnt even make 2, it was just some random cash in that the original dmc creator didnt know about. 2nd, dmc1 was good, it was, Chaos legion sorta felt like it but wasnt as fun. DMC3 was awesome instory and gameplay, it was the best in the series. 4 was awesome, loved nero, dante and well everyone except that dude with the monicle. gameplay was great and story wasnt horrible. and now there is this wanna be dmc that looks like it plays good (the previewers say it plays good) and they fixed his design compared to the original black haired version. No we will never have the original DMC back cuz mikami is busy making Bayonetta/anarchy reigns and isnt part of capcom. But im sure this will be the only time we see a black haired dante. Capcom had all their forces working on resident evil 6, thats why they outsourced this dmc. eitherway looks fun, and i want it. would like to see Nero meet his father Vergil though, would be awesome to see him Fight vergil
What looks good to you? the over the top color contrast, I bet there's tons of jaggies that would literally make this game game unplayable for me. YT vids tend to hide AA problems in many games which is why a game like Tekken 6 which looked great on YT was literally slicing up my eyes when I bought the game. This new DmC also looks kind of washed out which also pisses me off. The atmosphere and vibe I'm getting from this game is nothing like DMC3. This will be the end of franchise.
I honestly liked the first Dante character design they came up with aside from his goofy haircut. I liked how he looked and sounded sort of like an evil/vile street urchin. This newer version isn't bad, but he's certainly not edgy enough to be Dante.
dammit! just forget devil may cry, NT, and work on f!cking heavenly sword 2! EVERYONE WANTS IT EXCEPT YOU MEATHEADS OVER AT NT!
Now he just looks like a predatory gay man. And a little like someone out of jersey shore or something.
Ugh, can we just get Dante and a sequel to Devil May Cry 2. No alt. dimension Dante/DMC, but Dante, Sparda, Virgil, Mundus (remnant or whatever they can pull together) and no half demon/half angel story line but half demon/half human story line please Capcom...... -_- Heck I'll even take cry-baby Nero over this chump. The combat is copy and paste basically with a few different weapons. Plus on top of that switching weapons on the fly reminds me of Heavenly Sword, where he goes from a fast weapon but does not alot of damage to the base weapon that takes a good amount of damage and keeps the speed and a heavy melee weapon that slows you down but takes a huge amount of energy also add in the angel whip/Nero's devil bringer ugh man fresh gameplay huh NT? Dont make me laugh -__- So im also guessing that this game will resemble the extreme button mashing game that Heavenly Sword is instead of the combo-centric game that Devil May Cry was based on the video that im looking at right now. Plus air combat looks dull. But that's my opinion at least!
He's aimed towards homosexuals and Emo teenagers. In the one scene he's twirling around naked and his clothes are sliding onto him.. Come on, this is like the Gay Director getting a hold of the Batman franchise (Batman Forever/Batman & Robin) and making it all gay. Those movies flopped big time!
That is still not dante
So is a ps2 quality avatar with bad proportions and the oddest damn skin tone for a human character really a improvement, over the original dante.
