DmC Devil May Cry: “We don’t want the series to die”

X360M - Ninja Theory hasn’t exactly had an easy ride since it revealed the new-look Dante that would take the spotlight in its forthcoming reboot. But Capcom’s supervising director and Devil May Cry veteran Hideaki Itsuno is pleased with what the studio has done, and explains why it outsourced one of its most cherished franchises in the first place.

According to a lot of fans, the series is dead.

OptimisticPrime2563d ago

It's a good fuckin game.

Next topic for cry baby fanboys to bitch and moan about please.

No, it's a decent game but a miserable Devil May Cry title.

If it were a new IP it would be viewed on it's own merits but since it is not, it is being stacked up against it's predecessors to which it does not compare.

Also, here's a note, New Dante is 27 and this game is a reboot, not a prequel. This isn't the same Dante, he will never grow into the same Dante. It's an entirely different timeline.

You obviously haven't played the game.

NeXXXuS2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

I don't think it's dead. I however think that the series never needed a reboot in the first place. DmC 4 was amazing even though you only use Dante for a slight portion of the game. Nero was a pretty amazing protagonist.

@Optimistic - It might be a good game, but it certainly isn't Devil May Cry.

For future disagrees - This would have made a good game if it wasn't DmC. Ninja Theory changed it up too much and didn't listen to the fans of the original DmC. I'm not buying this game because Ninja Theory fails as a developer. Now look at Naughty Dog. They know how to please their fans and listen to their concerns. That is what a real developer should be like. Even Bioware listened to fans and tried to make up for that terrible ending in Mass Effect 3. They did a good job too, even if the new ending was bittersweet.

@Optimistic again - I have to respectfully disagree on too many levels. Reboot means that the series is restarted. The game isn't a prequel. The old Dante had a cool personality and was a ladies man. Facial features for the new Dante are obviously completely different as well. Again, the game isn't a prequel like you think it is (I hope you don't):

"It is SO believable that young dante grows into the dante everyone loves from 4. He's older, less immaturely brash..."

There was no reason to reboot the series when it was already an amazing game in the first place. Dramatically changing the story, the way Dante looks, and the environments are not original DmC.

OptimisticPrime2563d ago

It isn't what dmc USED to be... It obviously was made by western developers but I have played through the new game 3 times already and I was inspired to play through 4 again. It is SO believable that young dante grows into the dante everyone loves from 4. He's older, less immaturely brash...

But what most of the flamers don't realize, the new dante chills out on the "FUCK YOU!" nonsense by a quarter of the way through the game. I have literally laughed out loud a couple times cause the actor does a good job w his humor. I think they did a good job.

Technically speaking? Unreal was a poor choice. Historically poor performance on ps3 (which is where the majority of the fan base is) and the downgrade to 30 FPS are regrettable, but the game itself is good and it still really feels like Dante's personality would have been when he was younger...

1) DMC1 was the very first fast paced action game ever created. This game is innovation in its purest form.

2) DMC2 is a mess of a game from gameplay to story to overall design. The only good thing about it is that it had better graphics than the first game.

3) DMC3 made Dante younger and it was the first hack and slash game ever to allow original combos thanks to cancels ala 2D fighting games. This is DMC at its best.

4) DMC4 brought a new protagonist and when you finally got the chance to play as Dante near the end of the game it was just to backtrack through the same stages you have already beaten (sames bosses too!). This game is the very definition of a lazy job but it has the best battle system in the series.

5) DMC reboot, NT ruined everything. The game still has cancels but they are ugly, slow and pointless because you have infinite air-time with the angel weapon and you can string any kind of move-set to one another with no timing or skill required. NT turned the series into a button masher with an angsty protagonist, excessive cursing, tacky sex scenes, pointless platforming and bad frame-rate. If people like this game it's for the wrong reasons. They like it because it's easy and flashy, this game is the Call of Duty of the series.

OptimisticPrime2563d ago (Edited 2563d ago )

No I don't think it's a prequel. I'm just pointing out that he has the same personality as the dante that everyone wishes he was, just younger. If (or when) capcom continues this new Dante's story, it would seem at least at a character level that he is like the old dante to some degree. Hell, he matures a lot throughout the story. He isn't the same at all by the end as the overly expletive dick he starts off with in a threesome with 2 strippers

I know you haven't played the game because YOU can NOT button mash through DmC. You will die. And its not a cake walk through the game on harder difficulties like all the haters say it is which goes to show they never played the game. It is a challenge to beat it. I just beat Son of Sparda and it was challenging.

DmC Devil May Cry: We don’t want the series to die. We could not, would not, should not try.

I would not eat it in a box. I would not eat it with a fox.

I do not like green eggs and ham.

LOL this gave me a good laugh. Encore!

strigoi8142563d ago

its just starting with me..

TemplarDante2563d ago

If Capcom (Those backstabbers) carry on with Emo drama queen Donte, the series is ALREADY dead to me.

ziggurcat2563d ago

bu-bu-but i thought it wasn't about the hair?

wheresmymonkey2563d ago

No they got rid of him and replaced him with a cocky swaggering drunkard.

New Dante is less of an emo kid than the original one. Funny how every last hater instantly forgets all the moping he does in dmc1 and how agnsty he is about trish and his mum.

vork772563d ago

i just want this reboot series to die and them work on Devil may cry 5
