The staff that worked on Devil May Cry 4 is currently hard at work on Capcom’s upcoming hack-and-slash for the PS3 and Wii, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes.

During an interview with Siliconera , producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi revealed that, like Sengoku Basara, which has quite the female following in Japan, Devil May Cry 4 was developed with female gamers in mind.

Yet this seemed to warrant more for 'men'

Lady's breasts were pretty small in DMC 3 but in DMC 4 they were ginormous. And yet they are talking about how they made the game to appeal more for girl gamers.

Unless, well im sure you could imagine what kinda of girl would get turned on by that, but im sure they can get off by it, i know i had to keep mine at bay ;)

if you actually read , they are telling you they made it for both genders .

TnA for male was already there , they just added more eycandy and a puppy behaving hero , for the girls

Forbidden_Darkness3207d ago

I just didnt feel like reading it, title told me enough (3 hours of sleep doesnt help my attention span)

In the same way Bayonetta was made to appeal to men?

Dear lord , explain the worst "co-hero" of all time : Nero ...

alphakennybody3207d ago (Edited 3207d ago )

agreed 101%, playing him was one of the worst gaming experience I've had in years.

Slient Knight 93207d ago

there was only 2 things i liked about Nero, 1 the devil bringer and 2. his devil trigger.

i got bored of having to finish what Nero started, while playing as Dante.

Baka-akaB3207d ago (Edited 3207d ago )

seriously , i had issues with raiden in mgs2 at first , but mostly because of the way he hogged the spot and was introduced ... but in the end the game was still awesome , and he was in fact quite well fleshed and at the certain of a great plot twist .

Here in DMC4 we are with a failed character period . Hell they knew people wouldnt like him without cloning dante/Virgil's look .

Just imagine you are enjoying a great action franchise (die hard , lethal weapon , pick whatever you like) , and out of the blue , and for no reason besides gender marketing , some emo kid , basically edward cullen from twilight , hog the spot for half the movie ... and that's the first half !

He hogs the spot and bring nothing good to the action or the plot ... how are you not disgusted ?

Next time make a dmc game , for well maybe dmc fans...
