Capcom Reveals DMC and a Brand New Dante
Capcom is throwing out a lot of info at their Tokyo Game Show press conference, including a brand-new Devil May Cry game.
Titled DMC, the new game features a younger Dante with a whole new look. He’s younger, without his trademark white hair, and appears to be in an asylum in the trailer we’ve seen.
Here’s the official description of the game, straight from Capcom’s press release.
Set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC will depict a duplicitous world where nothing is ever as it seems and the line between good and evil is constantly blurred. Spurred into action by the promises of a trusted relation, Dante bursts into this world intent on revenge at any cost. DmC will retain the series’ signature mix of sword and gunplay but add additional weapons, all new powers and a revitalised gameplay system as players encounter the game’s devilish mix of enemies and navigate the rich, interactive environment.
Developed by Ninja Theory, who also brought you Heavenly Sword, DMC is slated to release for both PlayStation 3 and XBox 360.
The new Dante is raising some hackles among long-time fans of the series. Over on Ninja Theory’s forums, many folks in the community are voicing their displeasure over the new look, with many others are calling for it to be changed.
Will this character end up like Cole in Infamous? Will the community end up causes changes to his look? We’ll have to wait and see, but I can tell you that the new Dante isn’t the most popular guy right now. Get your own look at the new Dante in this trailer, and in the screenshots below.
