We all know that the change in Dante’s hair colour in Capcom and Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry wasn’t what all the fuss was about leading up to the game’s launch this month, but it was an issue for series fans and acted as something of a catalyst when the game was first revealed.
While fans continue to rage over this or that direction choice for DmC, at least one of their complaints will be addressed with an upcoming costume pack that will, in some small way, return the classic Dante look to fans.
Releasing on January 29th and January 30th in North America and Europe respectively, the alternate DmC: Devil May Cry costume pack contains three new looks for our hero, Dante, including the classic version we came to know in the first four titles.
On Xbox LIVE, the costume pack will cost 320 MS Points, or $3 on the PlayStation Store.
What do you think of the new costumes for DmC? And do you think this is another example of developers trying to assuage their fans, or just a nice extra for players to enjoy? Lisa’s editorial on the subject of pleasing the fans at the expense of a game developers vision may give you pause for thought on the matter…
