Huh. File this one under “Didn’t see that coming.” Dante is going back to basics in franchise reboot DMC.
Well, we did see it coming in the sense that we knew Ninja Theory, the team responsible for Heavenly Sword, was developing the new Devil May Cry game. That rumor came about earlier this year. But its kind of odd to find out that it’s a reboot. Dante has been redesigned from a hipster looking dude with white hair who doesn’t wear a shirt to…a hipster looking dude with black hair who doesn’t wear a shirt. It may seem like a small change, but from what I’ve seen the Internet isn’t happy with it. But then again, when is the Internet happy with change?
“We’re hoping to make a game that even Capcom can be proud of,” Ninja Theory director Tameem Antoniades said when the game was announced. Good deal Tameem. I like the cut of your jib. Let’s hope the gameplay matches up with your sentiments. And speaking of gameplay, I’d like to talk about gameplay, but all Capcom has shown us is a trailer with no gameplay. So hey, if you like bullshots, this should make you all sorts of tingly happy. It at least looks neat in cinema form. Let’s hope we get to see what this looks like in an interactive form very soon.
