The new Dante hasn’t had the easiest time finding acceptance from fans. It would seem his white-haired predecessor was a little more popular than Capcom thought he was. The thing is, Devil May Cry’s selling point has never been the old Dante. He was cocky and consistently fun to watch, but his absence has no negative effect on the series, which is and has always been about slick, fluid combat and pummeling demons as stylishly as possible. If this is what kept your interest in Devil May Cry, DmC has all that and more. READ MORE
As far as trailers go, this is a busy one. Lots of music, action, demons, and Dante just ruining everyone’s day, including a poor little girl who only wanted to drink her tentacle cola. It’s a gorgeous CG trailer, and while I’m usually not a fan of these because they never show us any actual footage from the game they’re promoting, we’ve already seen plenty of gameplay from DmC, which you can find here,here, and here. It’s a fun watch, check it out after the jump. READ MORE
This morning, Capcom’s PR team sent me a very stylish Christmas card that feature’s Dante from the upcoming Ninja Theory developed Devil May Cry reboot. That got me thinking about how exactly Dante would celebrate the holidays. When I imagine the parties he throws around Christmas time all that comes to mind is blood, sex, and pizza. Not a bad way to spend the holidays, I think. Check out the card after the jump. It’s pretty great. READ MORE
Capcom’s reboot of their stylish demon genocide simulator series isn’t coming out until next January, but if you want to get a taste of what this game has to offer, now you can. The demo for DmC: Devil May Cry is available now on XBLA and PSN, so if you need to get your daily allotment of demon whoopassery, you should totally check it out. In the demo, Dante fights the demon Succubus, and after you successfully beat her down you’ll unlock the ‘Son of Sparda’ difficulty level that should really only be experienced by the most hardcore of Devil May Cry fans. DmC releases on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on January 15th, with the PC version following sometime later. Check out the demo’s action-packed trailer after the jump. READ MORE
Ninja Theory’s colorful take on the Devil May Cry series won’t be out until January, but that isn’t stopping them from giving us a taste of the game’s first DLC, dubbed Vergil’s Downfall. The DLC will bring with it a brand new storyline featuring Dante’s twin brother Virgil, as well as new weapons, attacks, enemies to attack with your new weapons, and places to paint with the blood of the new enemies you just attacked with your new weapons. The DLC will be made available soon after launch — that’s January 15 for those keeping track — and will cost 720 MSP on XBLA, or $8.99 on PSN. Punch that ‘Read More’ button in its stupid ugly face if you want to check out the DLC trailer. READ MORE
For those of you who haven’t joined me in frothing at the mouth for the new-and-improved DmC, developer Ninja Theory has confirmed there will be a demo released prior to the game. None of that post-release demo nonsense, because Dante doesn’t put up with that shit, no sir. The demo should give gamers a taste of what the game has to offer so everyone can make up their minds by the time it releases on January 15th on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Head past the break for a brand demon-spanking new trailer from Comic Con in New York. READ MORE
Now this is a little disappointing. I’ll admit I got some vibes from the recent trailer where Dante wasn’t afraid to show some skin and was described by an anchorman as a “sexual deviant,” a term that was thrown around a bit in the 70′s and 80′s when intolerance of homosexuality was commonplace. While most games are busy sexualizing their women, DmC has been focusing on its lean demon slaying protagonist who winks a lot and sleeps in the nude. Sadly, according to Ninja Theory chief designer Tameem Antoniades, the new Dante hasn’t changed quite that drastically. More after the break. READ MORE
I’ve said it again and I’ll say it until DmC comes out and proves me wrong: this game looks incredible. Dante is looking spicier than ever, the world is absolutely gorgeous, and the combat still looks like it will make me look like a complete badass, even when I don’t have a fucking clue what I’m doing. If you’ve been aching for another dose of Dante the demon slayer, I highly suggest checking out the brand new trailer after the break. There’s some dancing, a little bit of music, and a giant demon butterfly that sits in the corner and has its eyes on you. READ MORE
I’m usually not a huge fan of studios giving their series to new developers, especially when I’m a big fan of the series being shared. Sometimes it works out–Silent Hill: Downpour being a good example of that–and sometimes not so much–like with Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Whether or not the game ends up being great, it’s always a little nerve-wracking wondering whether or not the series you love is going to retain all the things you loved about it after a new developer has had their cold, clammy hands all over it. It’s a good thing Ninja Theory’s hands are warm and firm, and boy, do they know how to use them. I love what they’ve done with DmC, transforming it into a vibrant, hyper-stylized world while retaining the things fans love about the series, including its wicked combat and bizarre monsters. Today, Capcom announced when we can expect Dante’s next outing, and that date is January 15th for the PS3 and Xbox 360, with the PC version following sometime later. READ MORE
There’s really no denying how incredibly cool the new Devil May Cry looks. Everything about it is vibrant and colorful, and as far as reboots go I think this one stands a decent chance of being one of the great ones. Ninja Theory has a history of making beautiful games, including the PS3 launch title Heavenly Sword and the more recent Enslaved, and it’s obvious DmC is continuing this trend.
To whet your appetite for the game’s impending release sometime this year, Capcom has released a handful of screenshots and weapon art for the game. Head past the break to check them out! READ MORE
Devil May Cry is getting reimagined with the upcoming DmC and despite slick visuals and some incredibly cool looking combat, Dante’s new look was what many gamers couldn’t stop talking about. I love the new look, it’s a breath of fresh air and I’m definitely a fan of the series’ new style. Below you can see the game in action, and if you were at all worried about whether or not DmC has retained the over-the-top demon slaying kickassery that made the previous games so fun to play, this new trailer should massage your worries away.
DmC releases sometime next year for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, and so far it looks to be shaping up quite nicely. READ MORE
Whether or not you like the new Dante I’d say it’d be tough to argue that this game doesn’t look good – the only problem is that, to me, it barely resembles a Devil May Cry game. Where’s the gritty environments, the cheesy dialogue, or the strategically placed devil doors (not real name?) that keep my frightened ass from fleeing the battle? I’m not entirely sure if I dig Dante’s emo look, I’ve seen enough brooding protagonists in my video games thank you very much. But this isn’t about that, so I’ll shut up now so you can check out the game’s brand new trailer and decide for yourself whether this is a direction you want the series to head.
Quick question, did Dante go super saiyan near the middle of the trailer? Check out a handful of new screens for the game after the break. READ MORE
