Dear Ninja Theory:
I, Zack, am a fan of the Devil May Cry games. I like the varied weapons and how the ability to choose between different kinds of “devil arms” and guns allows for a surprisingly deep combat system. I like the cinematics, so lost in their ridiculousness that they eschew any kind of pretension and try to hurl as much fun, stylish, sword-swingingly, pistol-blazingly awesome stuff at the screen as they can. I like Dante a heck of a lot; in practice his actions are a wonderful mixture of camp and awesomeness, but now and then the occasional stop to consider his half-demon, half-human heritage makes him if not relatable, then at least endearing.
I am not going to sugarcoat this. I do not believe that you are the developers right for this franchise.
