Capcom: Fans Are Warming to Dante's New Look in DmC

We'll see

Fans are warming to DmC’s re-imagined Dante, according to Capcom’s Alex Jones. The protagonist’s makeover prompted rabid followers to pepper developer Ninja Theory with death threats upon the title’s initial unveiling, but the publisher reckons the outrage is now finally beginning to die down.

"There was always going to be people who saw new Dante and who didn't want it, and that's fine,” he told VG247. “Being angry about it – yeah I get that – but we always said, 'When you see the game and you play it, trust me, you're going to understand that we were doing the right thing’. Now that's happening. So yeah it's vindication, but it's not like smugly sitting back and going 'ha ha’. It's more like, 'We understand why you guys had doubts, and we knew that we had to prove this to you, and we were happy to do it’. That was our responsibility."

Jones added that, despite Dante’s new look, the character will still be recognisable to fans of the series. "He's still irreverent, he's still – at the end of the day – the guy who will kick your ass and drop a cool one liner afterwards."

But he hasn’t got white hair, so let’s all whine in the comments...

I agree with Capcom, I actually like his newer look, doesn't look so anime looking now, looks like a character to be taken seriously!!! He looks completely more awesome than his past integration.

I wouldn't say anything right now. The game's sales will tell the real story of what happened here.

Is it a vocal minority on the internet who makes out like the whole world hates the new Dante? Or is it actually the truth? FIGHT!

All I know is that I didn't buy the last one, but will defintely buy DMC. The fact that the team who is making this also created Heavely sword makes it an absolute buy for me.

When you start at absolute zero you have no where to go but warm up.
It's like saying we are all older today than yesterday.
