DmC Gameplay Trailer Has (Literally) Mean Streets

Who cares if Dante's hair is dark in DmC? He still kicks ass with the best of them, as this latest gameplay video proves, as the moody young hero wields what appears to be a flexible blade, able to seamlessly change forms from sword to scythe to a stretchy grabby-thing that's ideal for some aerial juggling moves.
In the trailer, we also get to see more of the shifting architecture, which looks to have been possessed by demons, as cameras morph into eyeballs and walls burst with spurts of unctuous, otherworldly black goo. It's almost as bad as walking through the backalleys of London, but without the stench.
It all looks slick and speedy despite still being a work in progress video, with all of the combat features that make Devil May Cry the frenetic hack and slasher that it's always been. As long as dual pistol juggling is in - and it is - we'll be perfectly happy, white hair, dark hair, pink hair, blue hair... Whatever. DmC is out who knows when. There's still no release window yet.
