There's more than a hint of Alice: Madness Returns to Capcom's latest DmC gameplay vignette
The gameplay short shows moody protagonist Dante darting through a bizarre, dreamlike landscape. Being a Devil May Cry game, there's some midair brawling too. The game looks uber-pretty and the combat sharp. But dare to venture into the game's YouTube comments and you'll find fans whining about the game. The..
It'd be euphemistic to say that the reception to Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry has been less than favourable, but it's always puzzled us exactly what everybody's got their panties in a bunch about
Sure the new Dante looks like he listens to way too much My Chemical Romance, but everything Capcom's shown of the game has looked pretty darn stellar. Not least this brand new trailer that shows the..
We know fans of the franchise absolutely hate what Ninja Theory's shown of its Devil May Cry franchise -- or DmC as we're supposed to call it
But everything we've seen of the game looks nuts. Drumming up our hype is this rad new batch of screenshots, which shows Dante sprinting through an almost Wonderland-esque skyline. "But why's he got brown hair?" There's more screens available..
Finally, an explanation for the emo look
Developer Ninja Theory has revealed that its new Devil May Cry reboot, DmC, takes place in a parallel dimension to previous entries in Capcom's popular series, lending some explanation to the not-so-subtle tweaks the British developer has made. Capcom's said that the traditional silver-haired Dante might return in future entries, with the favourite appearing..
Controversial as it may be, Capcom's pushing on with its Ninja Theory developed Devil May Cry title
The publisher has released a new trailer of the title as part of this week's Tokyo Game Show. You can catch it after the jump. (We still think it looks rad).
We doubt the GamesCom trailer for Ninja Theory's DmC is going to do much to quell fear amongst fans
The combat looks decent enough for sure, but the game just looks empty — perhaps through the fault of its edit. The trailer showcases a variety of environments, but we still need to see much more of DmC before we can form an opinion on it. The game still looks very early to us, and that's..
Look, Devil May Cry fans are going to find a reason to hate on this brand new DmC footage -- but we think it looks great
The action looks sharp and suitably flashy. Similarly, we like the game's visual style. There's even a glimpse of the white-haired Dante that everyone loves. But yes, we're aware of the old adage: "Haters gonna hate".
We're putting on our flame shields just in case
Why? Because Ninja Theory's just confirmed that their divisive Devil May Cry reboot, DmC, will run on the Unreal Engine. You know, the licensed engine that's resulted in a number of unstable and graphically flakey releases this generation. Why is it such a big deal for fans? Because Devil May Cry as a gameplay experience requires a stable frame-rate..
For as much backlash is being thrown at Ninja Theory and Capcom right now, the reality of the new Devil May Cry trailer is that it's actually quite good
Sure, the Dante character model looks a bit awkward. But this appears to be an origins story; hence the rebellious, younger looking character. We reckon it's too early to be writing DmC off. Remain sceptical if you must, but let's have a bit of..
Dante's got dark hair
That's probably the biggest thing you can take out from the screenshots released for the new Devil May Cry title, which is in development at the British studio Ninja Theory. According to Capcom, three top-level Japanese staff will be flying over to the UK to work with Ninja Theory on DMC. Capcom's honcho Keiji Inafune was coy in regards to dates, stating it was too early to..
