Love it or hate it, a new Devil May Cry action title is in development at Heavenly Sword/Enslaved developer Ninja Theory. Currently known as DmC, the new title will feature the action-packed antics of a re-imagined younger and more rebellious Dante, the franchise-long star of Capcom’s Devil May Cry games.
According to the publisher, DmC will “redefine the franchise” but “retain the series’ signature mix of sword and gunplay” adding “additional weapons, all new powers and a revitalized gameplay system.”
But, as is to be expected, not all the fans are happy about this re-imagining of Dante and the new Devil May Cry. Perhaps hearing from Lead Producer Alex Jones and Chief Creative Director Tameem Antoniades will help to explain what they’re trying to achieve by toughening Dante up a little bit and giving him a harder edge.
