As a wink to the audience, the newest in the demon-hunting series shows what the new Dante might look like with a white mop-top. Get all the details below.

Is this an insult to the hardcore fans, or just a playful poke from Ninja Theory? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

Original Dante’s White-Hair Homage

  • During the first mission of the game, before Dante’s fight with a massive boss, a white wig lands on our demon-hunting hero’s head. The wig looks just like Dante’s original style from Devil May Cry 1-4.
  • Our new rebooted Dante takes a look in the mirror, then throws the wig away after (teasingly) stating, “Not in a million years.”
  • His statement isn’t quite correct — for completing the game, you’ll unlock a white-haired version of Dante. It’s also rumored that Dante’s original DMC3 look will return as DLC.

    “Is this an insult to the hardcore fans, or just a playful poke from Ninja Theory?”

    It depends really. From the get go Ninja Theory and Capcom have been trying to make a joke out of the fan backlash by making it look like it was all about the hair. It really wasn’t something as simple as that to many people and Capcom and Ninja Theory are only losing potential customers by not taking their concerns seriously. To these people something like this would be an insult. I myself can’t help but shake my head at the whole thing. Capcom’s handling of the situation, along with various other instances leading up to DMC, has caused me to avoid buying Capcom games.

    Will you guys be doing a review on this game? I’m curious as to what Gamefront thinks of it.

    That’s so great. People can claim the hate is about how the game “HAS SLOW/BAD COMBAT” or “ISNT 60 FPS” or “IS FOR CASUALS” “TOO AERIAL FOCUSED” “TOO EASY” “BAD STORY” or other they copy pasted from the web, but if this game had white haired Dante they’d all be “9.5 OMG”

    Its an insult really, the game is okay I guess but all in all its an insult to the REAL Devil May Cry series.

    As we can see from images, Dante gets white hair by the end of the game anyway. The backlash didn’t die at this realization either. In fact, I was willing to give this game a chance after the first trailer but everything i’ve seen since then has been dissapointing. So really, it has nothing to do with the white hair at this point.

    @Matthew
    I think the key thing here is that Capcom clearly wasn’t interested in keeping the original Devil May Cry fanbase. They wanted a new and bigger audience that would give them bigger sales. What gets me is that they would put this game under the name Devil May Cry to begin with, thus enraging their existing fanbase. Then to add insult to injury, they proceed to belittle the original fanbase every chance they get. I’m curious to see if they will actually make nice sales with this game especially after Resident Evil 6′s sales failed to meet their expectations.
