DmC: Devil May Cry
Fresh DmC Screens Pull the Devil Trigger
Written By
View author's profile

Some new screenshots for Ninja Theory's rebooted take on Devil May Cry have surfaced today, showing more of the new Dante cutting up twisted demons on the streets of Limbo City, where the buildings, streets and environments are also a hazard to look out for, as they shift and morph around you, providing a constant threat.

Luckily, Dante can activate his Devil Trigger if things get hairy, transforming the world monochrome, as Dante's jacket blazes bright red and his hair turns white. Hmm... Why does that look familiar? There's also a look at some of the new bosses you'll encounter in DmC, and those weird warping locations.

Capcom and Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry reboot will hopefully be shifting perspectives, when DmC launches, which is... erm, goodness knows when. There's still no release date. Check out all 10 screenshots in the gallery.

They need to release a demo for this game for me to even consider playing it.

New Dante is SO BAD ~sadface~

It probably will be fun to play tho, for whoever can pass the new Dante style.
DMC has born and grown with an only Dante to me

It looks cool, but Ninja Theory? Didn't they make Heavenly Sword? I found that game to be very disappointing, so I'm not getting my hopes up here.

I love DMC, and am hopeful that this is another quality title.

On another note, when I look under "game info" on this page it shows 3 people have this game in their collection.

@1. Agreed. I don't like that it a new dev, a new direction for the game, AND ANOTHER prequel. I always wanted a sequel to Devil May Cry 2, but that'll probably never happen.

I always played as Sparda in DMC. And if I wasnt using a Sparda skin, I was usingt he classic DMC skin where Dante looks more formal. =/
I already wasn't a fan of Dante BEFORE they turned him into a junkie.
I'm hoping Ninja Theory at least has the common sense to add alt character costumes, like Sparda or something. Or old Dante sets just so these crybabies can calm down about having to play as "new Dante" =/

But whatever, haters gonna hate. As long as the gameplay isn't retarded in the new version, it won't be any different to me, personally. I'm just interested in seeing what the weapon arsenal is and what they are capable of. As long as the weapons are satisfactory (though most look nearly the same just with different shapes so far... not a good sign...) and the gameplay is smooth, I'm fine. But, knowing Ninja Theory, the weapons won't be very diverse at all... Sword, Chain sword, Axe, Scythe, bleh. I liked the diversity in being able to use gauntlet weapons, a guitar, lucifer, agni and rudra, even pandora...

I don't see why people keep saying this is a prequel, because it's not. It's a reboot. It has nothing to do with the original franchise. This is an entirely different Dante, with entirely different origins, in an entirely different universe.

The thing is though, the franchise didn't need to be rebooted. DMC4 sold very well and was an amazing game. A reboot after 2 would have made sense because that game is by far the weakest link, but after the critical success of 4? It's mind boggling. I want a sequal to 4. I want to know more about Nero, or even a prequel that explains his origins. The reason I dislike DmC is because they're leaving a ton of things unanswered in order to create a ton of new questions that'll probably remain unanswered.

@2 not at all man i think it looks great.Best looking one yet as far as im concerned. I liked 1 3 and 4.Hard ass games on the higher difficulty levels no doubt.Devil May Cry has an arcade like feel that is a good escape from most games you play regularly.

Well, the game will probably be good.
It's the new "Dante" that I'm worried about.

They made dante look like a hipster CUNT (extra enphisis on the CUNT) seriosly in an interview with ninja theory they said the old dante would walk into a bar in Tokyo and get mocked??? thats disrespecting a gaming icon aswell as a massive fan base. at least the old dante would order a beer or straight wisky. this new look dante would order a wine cooler. Lastly DANTE DOES NOT SMOKE and his personality is all about being cool and stylish not depressed brooding little bitch.

I would not of cared about the change as much if ninja theory had gone about it better one of the devs alex basically said that the fans dont know anything about games and that they dont make games so they dont know how cool the new dante is. They basically pissed in our coffee.

I'm just tired of hearing this dante looks cryout on internet, I LOVE DANTE because of his action and attitude not because of his looks. Nero looked beautiful in DMC 4 but was a damn boring character that's why when Dante came and kicked ass in his style I loved it.

And Ninja Theory is a great developer Heavenly Sword was their first game and came out early in this generation and was a decent title, Ensalaved on other hand was a brilliant game the setting, graphics, story, characters and drama were all top notch but gameplay was nothing extraordinary. you should realize the creative control is still in the hands of Capcom, I have high hopes and expectations from Ninja Theory, you guys should have a little faith ;) and in meantime go give Enslaved a shot.

In the end game looks freakin awesome thus far and yup they should add skins this time too, Can't wait for HD collection in the mean time

This game is gonna be asstastic.... Crapcom is D E A D.


You've whored out Street Fighter and MvC to no end with ridiculously overpriced DLC, you've ruined Dead Rising and most importantly you've killed the blue bomber...fuck you in your stupid asses.

I no longer support this company.

My thoughts have already been posted on this site about this game and I stand by them. As others have said though I'm wicked excited for DMC1/2/3 HD this Feb. My only question is are we talking Special edition DMC3 or normal DMC3?

I have also played Enslaved and while I do agree with you that the story, characters, environments etc etc are all really cool, the gameplay is not. Combat is mediocre and platforming is just bad, ridiculously scripted automatic bullshit. I´d rather just watch a damn movie. Not to mention the camera that seems to have a mind of its own, hello, I want to look THAT way! :-////
Hopefully they have hired some new people because I can´t deny that I´m worried about the gameplay.

Special Edition, this was confirmed. :)

I could never get into original series. This might just be what I needed. Keeping close eye as it looks pretty good so far!

You have to admit, to say it's not the Dante we know and love, this new direction DOES look pretty rad and darker, not saying it'll beat the classics, it sure looks sexy.
