Combos, soul-sucking, devils who might shed a tear – it's just another day in the life of Nero, your neighborly demon-slaughtering anti-hero. He's new with a similar arsenal of weapons, combos, and single-hit attacks as Dante had before, plus new ways of inflicting pain on the world's second most gruesome creatures. (The first most gruesome are found in Resident Evil and Silent Hill.)
Devil May Cry 4's mechanics appear to be the same as the last time we saw Dante with the addition of a user-controlled camera system. By pushing the right analog stick, players will be able to adjust the view on-the-fly, just as they did in the creepy and remarkable Dead Rising.
Note: while this is a good preview, the author incorrectly refers to the new DMC4 lead "Nero" as the old "Dante". This has been edited here for clarification.
