Capcom has revealed the final box art that we can expect for DmC 'Devil May Cry' when it launches for the Xbox 360 and PS3 on January 15th, 2013.
Ew... Lol, unless the pre-order bonus is a palette swap to the "original" Dante... No thanks. They totally ruined Dante's backstory too, half angel my ass.
Even if there was a alt skin all it would be sadly is the same character model with the same coat but in red and white hair. The same will proberly be done for Playstation All Stars like his Lv 3, they won't actually put old Dante in...
He's actually wearing a red coat on the box art, only it's inside out.
What's really annoying is they released the HD remake then just poops all over an established franchise.
This guys are sooo bullheaded... this game feels so generic
yall are crazy man get over the fact they changed his look, dante is known for his combat and as long as its there who the heck cares. Also NT didn't want to change the look, they actually brought capcom a different look which was identical to old dante but capcom said its a reboot we want a different model but seriously people are still sour about his look get over it or how about this don't buy the game gamers complain about every little thing
Yes, Capcom agreed to the look. Capcom sucks just as bad as NT. They ruined one of the few games I actually like by them these days. I consider DMC4 to be the last. I'd rather see the series die out than go this route. Also, I'm not as mad about the look as I am about the change in his backstory. Dante was never, and will never be "half angel".
You can't call people crazy because after months and months of going through the same arguments you still think it's about the looks. Take a look around the internet friend, it's not just about the looks. Gamers have solid reasons to why they find the new DmC a horrible mess. Read into it. You want to know why gamers today get walked all over on by developers, because anytime someone voices their opinion people like you say they are complainers, crybabies or whiners. How are peole supposed to get what they want if they are hated on for voicing their opinion. I;d understand if the game was perfect up to Uncharted 2s standards where the developers couldn't get anything else more perfect but it isn't sadly. Let people have their opinions, I'm sure there was a blog made on this situation going on here
its not just looks the combat system has changed, the fps was lowered 60fps to 30fps this is not devil may cry its something completly different
@cee773 Out of the 4 DMC games only 2 of them actually ran at 60FPS. The other 2 only ran at 30FPS....so I hate to inform you, but the game running at 60FPS isnt what made it "devil may cry" as you say.
@VileAndVicious: There's a difference between not running at 60FPS because the game can't and not running at 60FPS because the developers don't want it to and are using an old and overused middleware engine because it makes their life easier. Of 4 games, half of the games run at 60FPS thanks to improvements. Why should we not want those improvements to progress? Why should DmC's regression be dismissed?
@DragonKnight I agree with you. I just wanted to point out that not all the DMC games ran at 60PFS But they were still very fun to play. I still think DMC was the best followed by DMC3, and while technical advances can certainly add to gameplay they dont necessarily determine the outcome of an experience.
"gamers complain about every little thing " Yeah including complaining about other gamers, like you are doing. I don't know about you, but I have been a longtime fan of this series for what it is. Nothing else. I got the demo in a rental of Code Veronica for the original DMC. I didn't even PLAY Code Veronica, just the DMC demo. This was YEARS ago. Since then, I played every game (including DMC2) and loved every second. There is alot of appeal with the DMC series for me INCLUDING it's Anime roots. So when they changed the series roots and style to gain sales and a bigger audience, I felt (along with many other gamers I'm sure) like they were saying, "You nerds aren't cool enough, I'm gonna go hang with the popular kids now" That, to me, is what Capcom is saying. Just because YOU don't feel that way, doesn't necessarily mean that's what everyone thinks as well. Live and let live. DMC to me is 60FPS FIRST OF ALL, Anime roots, white haired Dante, fast FURIOUS over the top action, and made by Capcom. Not NT. I would even take Platinum Games as they offered to help. This new DmC is is NONE of those things. To top it off, gamers are the customers, the ones PAYING for the game, why WOULDN'T we cry?! Have you ever been in Customer Service before? No, thats probably because you're too young to work, yet alone judge a game that the big boys like. Wrong topic.
Why do Capcom fans get so pissy at every game they publish? I think it's time to stop calling yourself a fan and stop buying their games. Clearly nothing they do can be good enough.
I'm absolutely NOT a fan of Capcom. At least not this generation. I "used" to be a fan of them, but these days they've just proven themselves to be completely money hungry and obviously don't give a crap about their fans in any way shape or form. If people don't see that by now I feel sorry for them, I really do.
Help me understand then, if you don't mind. If you don't like this version of DMC, why not just let it be? You guys seem to have such conflicted feelings that you spread your negativity across every article, story, and comment section. It's tiring to read, honestly. Just give it a rest already. You either like something or you don't. Clearly if Capcom doesn't give 2 shits about fans like you claim then they won't change for you. Especially since you seem to be offering no constructive criticism, just petty whining about Dante's clothes and hair.
@Mike_Tha_Hero Thats because apparently its more fun to complain and be negative about things than to go on about their business and actually find a game that they do like. I have been asking for the longest time if you dont like the new DMC then why not just ignore it? Its seriously as if they enjoy complaining about the game. Almost as if if they scream loud enough Capcom will apologize and just cancel this. But I do think the box art work is pretty ugly.
@Mike_Tha_Hero Read above his reason is them changing the back story an that is a valid reason.An why should he let it be he was a fan of the game he has the right to say what he wants as many times as he wants.An the change of looks is also a valid reason for people to speak their mind.
@Mike_Tha_Hero - As Dark_King said, I absolutely offered a reason as to why this entry insults me as a long time fan of the series. Changing the backstory and the character makes it a completely different game. I'd have been fine if they'd just called this something other than DMC. Make a new game, don't ruin a series that people love. That's all I'm saying. You think Halo fans would be quiet if Master Chief suddenly had no Spartan suit on in the new game, and had his story changed? Absolutely not. Don't get me wrong, the gameplay itself looks pretty decent from what I've seen. I just have a problem with NT doing this DESPITE fans' "clearly" reasonable disappointment with the direction the game is taking. I'm not trying to attack you personally or anything. I totally respect your opinion, despite you saying that I'm just whining without constructive criticism. However Capcom absolutely does NOT care about fans, that's clearly evident by them constantly putting out overpriced DLC, disc-locked content, 4 versions of each of their fighting games, etc. You simply cannot tell me that's not just being greedy.
ok mike tha hero since you don't get it lets put it this way what if for halo 5 they say MC powers was because he's half alien and they put a guy that looks like a Chinese body builder with a motor cross suit wouldn't any master chief fan be mad.Even better a Mexican looking Mario with a Greek body and a slim Cratos with long hair and high pitch voice. No offence to any Mario, Cratosor Master Chief fans just a example for a kid that just started gaming this generation.
It's true that Capcom has fallen quite a ways. No longer about unlocking items through game play, now you buy DLC. Plus, where the hell is Mega Man for god's sakes?!
But capcom games are fun till they crap all over the franchise.
Because they WERE good Mike. They attracted us with their games so we come to expect that sort of behavior from them. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Yet they keep throwing the monkey wrench in there because they want to attract "The Call Of Duty crowd" RE6 anyone?
Ruined his backstory? This is a reboot. A re-imagining. A different take. New Dante can be whatever because he's not the same guy. These two Dantes are related in name only. That's it. I don't see how people don't understand that by now.
First, to the people saying "if you don't like it ignore it" you're missing the point. We loved the Devil May Cry franchise, we don't love DmC. We don't want MORE DmC. If we say nothing, Capcom will think this game is universally praised and will continue on with this crap. If it doesn't sell and we said nothing that can give them reasons why it didn't sell, they'll end the franchise thinking there's no more interest in it at all. That's why we voice our opinions. To phigz18: Your argument is flawed because Capcom are trying to cash-in on the Devil May Cry franchise name and its protagonist. They thought the fanbase would just flock to it because of the name, and they thought the new style would bring in new fans. Therefore by linking the two through the franchise name and protagonist, it is right to say they ruined Dante's backstory. They only started calling it a re-imagination because people were pissed off. Half-Angel Half-Demon is something straight out of Darksiders and I don't remember Dante being a Nephilim do you?
@Phigz18 And that is why they should have made it a different game and if anything let the Devil May Cry legend die with Devil May Cry 4. Because this is the only gaming franchise that didn't need a reboot just a sequel. Prequel this prequel that it gets old. You actually got something that can unfold with Dante and Nero and Virgil and a remnant of Mundus or something. But Dante being Half Angel and Half Demon makes the story seem very stale. What made him likeable was the fact that he was half human and he had feelings and cared. He obviously does exhibits feelings in the new game but it begs to ask, why even change the origin of his heritage at all? Especially since Angels never have really been involved with Devil May Cry outside of a mention in the manga and possessed empty armor in Devil May Cry 4.
Where is Dante? That's not dante..
Don't give the game a chance....
Not a bad box art. Too bad the game is going to suck.
I don't know man, I kinda like the box art. and the game looks pretty decent. I'll check it out when it hits the €40 mark
Ahh the infamous "Blue and Orange" colour scheme on another box art.
It really looks splendid, cant wait to see it! I'm sure it'll look even better when it goes gold! :-)
Me to, I think when we see better than expected scores then alot of the complainers wil get the game and back track saying they were never part of the ones hating.
Anyone who listens to reviewers is a lost sheep. I've never once listened to what reviewers have said and I'm happier gamer for it. For example, I actually enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever and I think Killer7 is a masterpiece. Reviewers can eat it.
Genesis cover ftw
The last picture made the article worth reading.
At least the box art looks nice. Maybe I will get it for the Genesis.
You may not like the new design,or the changed back story, but come on....you'd be downright lying to say the gameplay doesn't look fantastic. I really don't think Ninja Theory will drop the ball on this game. Color me interested.
You do realize NT made Enslaved right? Dropping the ball for them isn't a foreign concept...
LMAO Bubble for you.
Enslaved had great gameplay, but I never bought it - the visual style gave me a headache.
And what was so bad about Enslaved? Besides the sales I mean lol. I happened to enjoy what I played of it. I dislike NT because of all the trash talking they did about Heavenly Sword and how it didn't sell enough. That being said, I do believe they make good games. After all this fan backlash, I think they are going to make DMC there best game yet.
You realize Ninja Theory has not changed the combat at all right, everything has been copied and pasted on. You got the stinger in the game, rainstorm in the game, you got something that looks like the Ifrit melee Gauntlet in the game, Nero's devil bringer in the shape of Rebellion, they still got the scoring system the same but dumbed down alot more to where you can do the same combo over and over again to acheive S Ranking. I know I have not played the game myself but watch the demos and they are not jaw dropping, they are the same combat, just dumbed down and slower combat with a new angelic scythe. If you played a Devil May Cry game before you should be disapointed especially since the promise of this new game is fresh and new gameplay...
That's because combat was handled by Capcom. They said it themselves. That's the only part of this game that looks good, and compared to other DMC titles, good, not great. DMC had ridiculously fantastic EVERYTHING and it went from that, to having good combat and that's it. How could you even say copy/paste with the combat anyway?! The controls changed, we dropped to HALF the frame rate (which is important in this type of game), and we lost not only the taunt function, but also the freakin lock on! It was a lock on based system!! WTF?! @OMAR (below) Omar wrote: "to those who always talk crap about this game; would you be more interested if the name was completely different?" NO, BECAUSE WE WOULD BE TOO BUSY PLAYING DEVIL MAY CRY.
And I agree with what you say, I say copy/paste because the move set/combat looks the same but alot slower and clunkier instead of smooth, fast and seamless combat! And as you said minus lock on , frame rate drop and taunt. I just didnt go that far into detail. But totally agree everything was great with everything on the originals but needed to progress the story. Also if they named this anything else it would be seen as another Devil May cry Clone/ripoff thats borrowed too many elements from the original series as Chaos Legion and many other beat em ups have; also as Enslaved used too many elements from Uncharted in which it was labeled a Uncharted clone with a different story; also as Heavenly Sword was a God of War Clone but with atrocious controls compared to God Of War. When you watch gameplay your too busy in the air slashing at enemies while they wait around to be hit. There jsut seems as if not much is going on while air combat is going on.
to those who always talk crap about this game; would you be more interested if the name was completely different? if it was called something else would you actually end up getting excited for this game?
No, nothing about this game is actually worth getting hyped about in my opinion. Hell, most people would probably just ignore it if it wasn't called DmC. That is what most of the hate is about, taking a lot of peoples' favorite franchise and bastardizing it, plain and simple. And no, it is not just about the hair.
This, one million times. The game is classic Ninja Theory stuff, flashy, eye-catching (the art director Alessandro Taini is genious) but totally shallow gameplay wise. Heavenly Sword is very boring but eyepleasing Enslaved is...wrong, clunky Both games didn't have a jump button and gameplay wise weren't satisfactory. The changes in the story and characters are very bad...NT said that if the old Dante would enter a bar in Tokyo, people would have laughed at him, well, they didn't understood that the old Dante would have been "cool story bro" and wouldn't have given a f'! Vergil looks like a fat kid and the coat is awfully terribad. They quite messed the game badly. Maybe it will be a good game in the end (Awesomeness is not in NT standards) but it has a really bad name. I'm an old DMC fan, but I'm more interested in RememberMe than this. Last thing, I think it's unrespectful that some people fails to understand how old fan feels, you are...pathetic. I like what I see from RE6, but I don't try to change the mind of the old fans that are attached to the old games, and have their fair reasons to complain.
You said it. If it wasnt for the name, no one would look at this game.
Pretty cool boxart. Really looking forward to the game. I'm past the point of arguing with the haters that seem to invade EVERY SINGLE ARTICLE concerning the game, even when it's something as trivial as the boxart...
I cant wait for the price drop
I would actually be looking forward to this game if it was a spin off. They should have not used Dante's great name and Rebellion in this game. And to further slap us in the face they bring in a new Vergil without the slightest hint of his previous badassery either. I would have been just fine if this was in the same universe as the others, with the cast having new names and weapons, but alas that is not the case.
I agree, they could've avoided all this unnecessary backlash if they went with a spin-off. And why Ninja Theory? I'm not hating—but Let Ninja Theory make their own games and create their own franchises. I commend them for taking a creative risk and having the balls to stick by their guns, but looking back in hindsight, this was probably not the right franchise to do it with. I hope for Ninja Theory that the game scores favourably. I'm sure they've been under quite a bit of pressure putting this one to bed.
Aw come on man! A day before my B-day?!? That trash?!?
Still have to chuckle at all the people demanding the old Dante. I guess its gaming's version of the Edward/Jacob rivalry.
We have to fight off all the Twilight infections we can.
Let us bitch and complain in harmony my brothers and sisters!
Looks like I'll be pre-ordering at Amazon then unless Gamestop has a better pre-order bonus.
I hope this title bombs...so hard. Like...worse than Enslaved hard... Hell worse than Diakatana back in the day.
I know you dont like the gamebut dont wish bad for others.
No I will...this game needs to bomb. Capcom needs to learn a lesson.
HEY! Enslaved was GOOD!
Enslaved didn't bomb hard it just didn't get any buzz just like suda51's shadows of the damned but it was a great game stop hating the game because everyone else does im a fan of the series and im looking forward to the the new dmc game.
honestly he loks just like the old dante just short brown hair like myself haha
THE combat is allthat matters.
everything about this game is forgettable...
Attention all...buy this game used if you have to. Don't give Capcom/NT money. They don't deserve it... By buying it used you save some money, Capcom/NT don't get money and you still get to play the crappy game. It's a trifecta of win.
So you talk shit about the game you wish for it to bomb yet admit you are interested in pkaying the game? Un-fucking-believable . Look what the world has come to.
