Seems that Capcom is trying to ruin some of its best franchises with dangerous experiments.
Devil May Cry has an established fanbase, the fans wanted a new entry in the series, not a reboot. dante it was his attitude and his style that made him great in the first place.
there are way too many stupid gaming websites Is gosspidgamers trying to ruin my day with half-ass articles they write?
Capcom need to take America's D.... Out they A.... NA MEAN? It's gettin A tad bit annoying.
yes for crying out loud, let americans deal with western style games, the japanese with jap style games, and those in between with Downloadable inde games, [ lol :) ]
Will this ever stop?
a company is trying to ruin a franchise they own. Makes perfect since.
enough about Dante's fucking looks. Sheesh. I'm just as upset as the next fan but ffs get over it! No one played and liked Devil May Cry 1-4 because the characters looked badass - it's the gameplay that matters at the end of the day
And since when Ninja Theory is known for gameplay? Just look at Enslaved, for god's sake.
For real, september called, they want their article back. This is like the 1000th story on the subject. Why approve this?
i see your point, but its funny that you point that out because when dmc1 released in 2000, i was barely 10years old. i was with my father walking through walmart and seen the boxart of dmc and i knew i had came across something epic. Red trench coat (fav color, badass) white hair (unique, badass) shotgun (destructive, badass) dragonsword (legendary, badass) from that moment i knew i found my new favorite game character and life idol (but like i said i was a kid, lol) to simplify what happened...
Agred, but Dante's been with us for a long ass time. Then they screw with him.
not really it was the cutscenes the show offs that made many people like the game gameplay isnt all that much,enemies feel more like zombies and not demons... so bring the old fking dante
well actually one of the reasons why DMC is so well known s because Dante is one of the most Badass Mofos in the gaming, that and the intense difficulty, turning him into some emo, metro-sexual dork, just lowers him on the cool meter
limbo city? so stupid and unoriginal. it's a like a fourteen year old wrote the game script.
In Dante Aligheri's Divine Comedy, Limbo is the first circle of Hell that Dante and Vergil enter in. Limbo is portrayed as being an area where virtuous pagans reside in. Although the virtuous pagans in Limbo are (according to Dante) shown to be good natured individuals compared to the heretics of the sixth circle of Hell, their lack of Christian faith prevented them from entering Paradiso
And the fact that Dante was just fourteen years old when he wrote The Divine Comedy is just mindblowing. From the looks of it I'm expecting the soundtrack to be handled exclusively by My Chemical Romance.
They are trying to ruin it, on purpose. They don't want anyone to buy it at all. Ever. No rentals either. Clearly a strange plan, but that is definitely what they are doing. No doubt in my mind.
why of course T__T
Its stupid because he looks like freakin Edward Cullen! Do the Japs think we ALL like twilight!? teh hell is wrong with em?!
Well technically Capcom said ninja theory could go crazy. And ninja theory is based in England. And BTW has anyone gone back to see the heavenly sword making offs? because in second video they have the look of the main character when it was originally going to be a guy, and it looks very similar to Dante (probably more emo though). I'm just wondering if this is really just their style.
...it’s all part of their intricate marketing plan to go broke...
"Is Capcom trying to ruin Devil May Cry series with Dante's new looks?" No, they already did that with DMC3.
I think you are mistaken...perhaps you meant DMC4? Cause 1 and 3 were the 2 best of the 4 game series...
Yeah, it's DMC4... i think he made a mistake. I hope.
ummm so if u dont like his look in 3 and 4....i assume u loved DMC2 huh?
DMC2 just doesnt exist for most of the hardcore fans.
i think u meant DMC4, because DMC3 was the best in the series.
But there is nothing wrong with Dante's look in DMC4..
No, there isn't anything wrong with Dante's look in DMC4 but, sadly, a lot of the other stuff was pants. Why did we have to play the same game twice and one of those times as sodding Nero(his demonic arm was the only good thing about him and, being fair,. allowed for some good and different gameplay at times)? Why was every boss recycled over and over? What were the "puzzles" and "platforming" bits about? And, really, what were they thinking? That we'd swallow anything as long as we got a glimpse of Dante somewhere? And wasn't the bad guy the most obvious "twisty" in games EVER? To me Capcom are generally just a lot worse than they used to be and DMC3 being a lot better than DMC4 serves perfectly to illustrate their fall from grace alongside series as varied as BC and Resi also failing to reach their former heights. Am I alone in seeing this trend? Farming it out to western developers and a ton of other games which didn't need western direction too isn't the answer either./ Why can't they, like Platinum, allow their talent to just make good games without caring about Oriental and Occidental influences. Good = good, no?
Completely agree, mastiffchild.
LMAO @ the new dante.
he looks like a flamer just like all the square enix characters. is capcom the next company to go down the drain with tranny heroes like square?
Are these the same whining tards that complained about the new Cole in Infamous? Jesus Christ that blows my mind. Some games demand reinvention, and if it means an overhaul of the character then so be it. At the end of the day the game is still going to do ridiculous numbers. I'm glad artists are actually changing the look and not the fans. If you're so displeased with it then why don't you draw your own Dante? Oh wait... didn't they do that? and wasn't it unbelievably pathetic? LOL, what a bunch of creatively devoid gluttons.
Very little of it now is about the redesign of the character (which still looks terrible admittedly). Now that it's being handled by a pompous prick (Tameem) and a studio who seems to garner some inexplicable good grace from the gaming press despite only being really known for two mediocre games (HS and Enslaved), both of which have piss poor easy gameplay. Oh, and Jim Sterling seems to love them just for being British. Huh, whoduhthunkit.
This new Devil May cry (if it is a Devil may cry ) looks more like prototype,a beat em up on a open world, it could work but only if this is apart from the series, assuming this is not DMC5.
seriously enough with the freaking whining. cole ending up getting even more uglier and this dante isn't half bad. sure the dmc3 dante was the best but this one is starting to rub off me. i personally can't wait for the new DMC and hope they don't change the new dante.
100% agree, the newest Cole is horrible. The new DMC might become a decent game, if it's not casual like Enslaved.
@j-blaze What are you like 12?
Oh look another Dante article, I had enough of those. To top that of, it's being developed by Ninja Theory :(
It should make sence why he looks different. At least solid snake turning old was explained within the story. Dante turning goth doesnt make sence.. He looks cool and mean as f*** but I still see no plausible reason for his drastic change.
Capcom is trying to do. Ruin a million or billion dollar franchise cuz that's what video game companies do right? They are intentionally trying to ruin a franchise by trying to bring new life into it. Exactly.....
Much ado about nothing.
No-one wanted a reboot. no-one wanted a dante redesign. NO-ONE wanted Ninja theory to become the dev. Hopefully this bombs so that we can get a Real DMC5.
Established fan bases are a dime a dozen but love dont pay the bills. Im going to hazard a geuss that having an external dev developing the game is a sign the franchise is in decay. Yea iv had my fun taking cheap shots at the new look but when it comes down to it im looking forward to seeing how this game turns out. And to all those spamming the rage what the f#ck is wrong with you people?! You bring shame to us all and gaming in general.
capcom has played out it's franchises so much that they are now making their characters drug addicts just to make ends meet. I understand that we are in a depression and all, and that they need to make money, but there are better ways to make money then to promote drug addicts whacked out of their minds on smack. Just say no people, just say no.
He looks like a zombie version of that emo vampire from Twilight. WTF is wrong with Capcom. This looks terrible...
