Capcom has shared new story details for the DmC reboot. Any Devil May Cry fan will recall that in the original first 4 games Dante and his twin brother Virgil were sons of a human woman and demonic male, named Sparda. Not so in this reboot.
And cue the whining.
Damn right! That's garbage! Just called this the "Story of Little Nicky" Official Title- The Story of Little Nicky: Release the Evil
POPEYE'S CHICKEN IS F**KIN' AWESOME!
So true this is becoming more of a reboot for Little Nicky. btw very funny movie.
Oh, for F sake. Good job NT for turning a good storyline in to this stupid cliche garbage. Demon & Angel child, the F was that? He sure turns out to be a human-like creature, with symptoms/appearance of a drug addict. Seriously, the f*cked up gameplay is just not enough, NT now feel the need to f*ck up the story too. Freaking sad.
good luck with that capcom
so a demon and angel make out and give birth to a hideous looking human with a british flag on his jacket?? A F***ING HUMAN?? HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!!
yeah man, havent you ever heard of British Angel Demon babies before.
Oh Capcom... At least try and make some sense about it! Like, its wasnt an Angel but a Godess who became ashamed of her affair with a Demon and since she couldnt kill her own son, she sent him to live amongst the humans. Oh wait, greek mythology did that about 3000 years ago!!!
Again for all retards. CAPCOM had nothing to with this game other than create the first 4 travesties!
This game is getting my D*** WET!!!!!
"child of a demon and an angel" WTF
Not only that but somehow he ended up half human and demon.... So.... What now?
It sound like Bayonetta now... good/evil hybrid >.>
Son of Sparta. Not an angel. They're screwing with the plot..wtf man.
its a reboot, did you know in a reboot you can alter plots?? crazy huh /s
This isn't a reboot, it's cliche westernization BS. Devil May Cry deserves better then this. How are they gonna do this to a franchise that hasn't been completed yet. Still so much they could've done with the series. Screw this.
What the hell is the big deal its a reboot? Reboot means things change the story can be altered. Besides its not like they ever really talked much about his mother Eva to begin with. All you ever really know about her was her name, she was human, she died and trish looks alot like her. They are just trying to make a coherent story for once. I SWEAR you guys are starting to sound like a bunch of star wars nerds or something jesus just wait a play the game.
Lol well arent you passionate baker boi. And such a large vocabulary :-)
Why stop there? Why not make him just the son an Angel. Angel named....Frank, yeah, Frank. And turn it into a role playing game with crappy combat. Or better yet no combat. What's the saying? If it ain't broke, don't fix it. AND Dance with the girl you brought. Capcom seems hell-bent on breaking both of them at the same time.
Dude it WAS kind of broke the story was NOT the strongest element of the past dmc games combat was. I mean lets be completely Honest for a second there are 4 devil cry games currently 2 of them were not the greatest Most people dont like dmc 2 and dmc 4 was pretty garbage compared to the third and first... So what is that? 50percent half of the games in this series are truly masterpieces the other two while not necessarily bad were not great by a long shot. But it wasnt broke? The story made perfect sense before? Remind me again was nero vergil.... Or.. Was he another brother??? Oh thats right it was never explained. Come on man. I love devil may cry it was the reason i bought a ps2 i own every game in the series... But it was FAR from perfect.
Your judging from an unfinished product. Unfinished cars cant start. Would you judge from that? Probably not, shut up and let the game come out. If you dont like it dont buy it. Ninja Theory spent their time and money not yours. Your wasted went to Capcom for part 4 of that garbage game. Yes, 4 was ass and all of you bought. You paid for DMC1 when you bought. Rehashed character and a generic ass story. Oh boy, yet you whine about change. Go play super nintendo!!!! Has a nice day! :)
How is this game still even getting made? The fans don't want it, Capcom aren't going to get many newcomers to the franchise either, The plot's a joke! This re-boot is likely to kill the franchise... They'd be better off scrapping it and making a proper DMC-5.
WTF?! so why is he in "HUMAN" form?????? the original dante was Son of a Demon and human that was the reason why he looked human that can transform to a demon right?
Want to know what the best part is? This line..... "Capcom also promises that DmC ”will remain true to the Devil May Cry DNA so cherished by the fans, ...” That is the best part.
Oh Yeah, I lol'd when I read that.
F#$k Ninja Theory and Capcom
That's it, way to go Capcom congratulations on killing the franchise. What utter BS! How much more can they ruin this game!?, Half Demon/Human made sense he was fighting on our behalf. Demon & Angel? What a joke, This is Team Ninja's doing I just know it.
How exactly is Human/demon any better or worse than demon/angel? Also "half human/ demon made sense made sense because he was fighting on our behalf. " Vergil was the same as dante half human/demon and he was evil and fought against humans how does that make anymore sense? Its the same thing you have one brother that will side with humans and one brother who will side with the demons same shit diffrent details. @ bellow What i just said doest matter? Lol sir i just proved my point what you wrote up there is the same thing i wrote demon/human or demon/angel..its pretty much the same one brother is good one bad you guys are nitpicking at the details. But let me ask you this... How does it make sense that dante who is HALF demon and HALF human is waaaaaaay more powerful than any other demon? I mean wouldnt it make sense for him to be weaker or flawed? However if he was one part two different types of super natural begings why wouldnt he be freakishly powerful. I mean guys i understand they are changing things but it a reboot... things are supposed to change in a reboot
None of what you said matters, the half Demon/Human plot worked because Dante had Human emotions and wanted to protect people, vergil on the other hand only wanted power, he didn't care about the Demons or Humans he just wanted his fathers power. Anyway I've already said on a few other posts that i'm not against a re-boot, Im against this failed attempt. It looked bad enough before they started messing with the whole plot.
Why re-boot it at all?. Look the game worked the way it was why change it? Dante being stronger because he was a Demon/Human I always assumed the mixed blood made him stronger, but that's not the point it just works. Demon/Angel Dante fighting Demon/Angel Vergil just sounds so damn corny!, it really doesn't matter anyway, Capcom are only re-booting the franchise to hook new fans and that's a fact. Im not saying the original games where flawless and they did have some huge plot holes, but changing everything this much is just upsetting the fans, the people who they want to buy the game. If you need to change something you do a better job than the original right? But ask most fans and they will tell you they think it's worse, Im for a re-boot if its good, this one though dosent look good to me. Dante is no longer the Dante we liked and the game style, atmosphere the whole thing feels off... Maybe it will be good but right now I just don't like it.
Because his father was Sparda, a Demon who fought a Army of a 1000 Devils...by himself.... Did you forget that while you were so caught up in your hype for this reboot? Even if you do own the entire series, it seems like you don't even understand what DMC is. You bash it like it was never a good series.
@rezzah Actually rezzah to tell you the truth im not too hyed about this particular game. Not because it looks bad or anything there are just other games im hyped about (like deus ex) I find it interesting and ill probably play it. But i do really enjoy the franchise, though maybe it doesnt seem that way. Im just trying to say sometimes change isnt bad. My stance is that yes this game is different but it may still be worth while. And while i really liked the other games in the series they werent perfect contrary to what some people may think. I think that when you like something like lets a say a movie or music artist theres nothing wrong with criticizing certain aspects of them while still enjoying certain things about them. So maybe its the frustration of reading the outrage from fans that seem to nitpick over certain little things here and there but i want to... Not defend the game. But simply say reserve final judgment of the game until once its finished. I think any real fan or enthusiast of something would want to do that.
Just like this game is the child of a company out of touch with it's fanbase and an egotistical producer at a middling games company.
they rather cancel Mega Man Legends 3 than this? Now I know what game I don't care about.
All the style and flare that made 1 & 3 such cool games has gone, now it just feels like a standard hack and slash. The last game wasnt bad it just didn't feel like a DMC game, I wish they would go back to the original to see what made it so special and build on that.
One of the major themes of DMC is that Dante chooses to live as a human instead of a demon, and vice versa for Vergil... Dante's mum was not a friggin angel..smh did they ever mention... In fact as far as I remember they don't mention angels, if I'm wrong correct me. Screw Ninja Theory for tampering with this game. Screw Capcom for letting this even happen.
Lol, it reminds me of Hellblazer / Constantine movie maybe some point in the game, Dante will meet Contstantine / Papa Midnight and they have a party for sending demon's or twisted angel back to heaven...uh...hell :P also throw a little twist that Dante in fact is lucifer son XD btw R.I.P DMC :)
they are just changing everything
WTH is the point of MvC 3's Dante.... Ugh Capcom why! This is garbage! Im actually hoping they dont make a new Onimusha It def will end up like this crap. (Capcom head) Hmmmm So lets make Samanosuke an american demon with blond hair and name it Onimusha and take out all of the Japanese elements in the story and make it westernized!
Practice....not a game practice....Go dante new story
Son of a Demon and Angel..wow..i have to say ninja theroy, you have intrigued me now.
Dmc2 wasnt the smart ass Dante people wanted. But he is supposed to be older....like late 40's. He acted appropriately. I enjoyed it for what it was. And th chick was a cool designed character. Only at the very last cutscene does Dante act like the youthful Dante. It made the cutscene and ending more dramatic.
I'm sure anything anyone says about this now is to be labelled as "whining" and dismissed as unmerited, baseless complaining, but this is pretty dumb. It's one of those typical, obvious plot devices, used just in case people were in doubt that the story was your typical "good vs. evil" dichotomy and the main character is the "key." The Japanese origin story actually made more sense, and set Dante along a possibly tragic story arc. He was the son of a demon knight and a human woman. This meant he could be a violent, supernatural and brutal force, yet display a certain humanity and emotional vulnerability at times (as evidenced by his weakness for Trish, who looks like his mother). A human side also makes him relatable. Using this angle meant you could show an inner struggle to maintain humanity, despite the immense and macabre power within him. Angels and demons lack a physical form and are typically incomprehensible to humans. If he is to be a product of these, then he lacks humanity and thus relatability. And if he is to have a very human character, then it would belie his origin story and seem incongruous. Granted, the story-telling of the original left something to be desired, but the foundations were there for a decent story. And when you're already taking flak for changing things around and making the character's appearance unlikable, silly and whimsical changes like these only serve to compound things. I'll not pass judgement till I've played it, but much of what we have seen of it has been detrimental to fans' hopes of a successful reboot.
What the.... ...
Is that why he looks emo?
fuc this game
I'm starting to believe that this game was a feint to increase DMC HD Collection sales.
