DmC: Devil May Cry
DmC Screens Show Dante Doing His Demon-Slaying Dance
Written By

Capcom has released some more screenshots of DmC, this time showing Ninja Theory's dark-haired Dante doing what he does best. Slaying a load of demons in style, with his trusty Ebony and Ivory pistols, and his big sword, Rebellion.

There's a little extra backstory to these too, with Dante growing up alone within various orphanages, foster homes and correctional facilities where the demons running the institutions in question tortured the young, fledgling demon killer. Now, Dante understandably hates demons and wants to slaughter the lot of them.

In all, you'll find five new screenshots to peruse below, each looking more red and hellish than the last, with a freaky neon fairground carnival vibe, evident in the carousels, tents and so forth. DmC is out in 2012.

'Wolverine goes to a carnival'.

3 hype building screenshots should not put you off purchasing the game, but it's certainly making me think twice. I'll wait for a review...

@7 If you don't like an emo Dante fighting scrawny robots then you probably won't like any DMC game as they all feature emo characters fighting scrawny puppets and clowns.

at all of you mentioning emo, its not really emo if im honest lol, if you wanted to put it to a music culture then you probably find its closer to punk or grunge really

but that aside everyones entitled to an opinion wether they like the look or not, wether they will boycott the game or not is someones own opinion but that dont mean shit to anyone else im afraid, i will get this game, i like the look of it i dont care if any of you dont, thats my opinion...

it all boils down to fan boys lets take ps3 and xbox for instance how many xbox owners hate on ps3 and probably have never played one and vice versa

then theres the MW and COD debate haters for each, again how many haters have never played one or the other or dont like bf cos you cant run around like a noob etc

same goes with this, this could be the greatest DmC everrrrrr but majority having a mardy because oh no they have changed dante which looking back now looks a bit of a douche in todays standard of comparrison..

on the flip side it could be an absolute stinker but unlikely

Dunno about emo, but he looks like he's been through a nasty heroin addiction.

Looks more like he just came out of an Abercrombie store....with a heroin addiction. Or wait, maybe it's an Abercrombie addiction. Yeah, he cannot get enough of stupid overpriced clothes or bad music.

The description rich gives coupled with the screen shots is just plain confusing me. He lives in demon world while going to demon school/foster care and gets picked on by demons?! The first screen shot just does not impress. I get he's younger so he'd be skinnier but what is with the clothes? Leather cowboy boots, with acid washed jeans and a v-neck tank top?! Just when and where the fuck is this game set?

ANOTHER game with floating locations high in the sky? How many cames are going to copy the same crap? Also, The enemy designs look a little lacking compared to previous DMC games. I still remain optimistic, but doubt this one will be for me.

@11 Ninja Theroy doesn't know where they're taking this game. It's been obvious for the past months.

People are really starting to irritate me with their complaining about Dante's look. That seems to be the only bad thing anybody has to say about this game. Dante's look isn't what made the franchise what it is. It's the badass combat, insane combos, and the demonic/gothic art style. From what little gameplay they've shown us, all of that is still there. Don't automatically rule it out just because they changed the look of Dante. He's still Dante and this is still Devil May Cry.

I never liked Dante. He always looked like a cheap Sephiroth clone to me. This new version actually makes me want to try the game and see what the series is like. If anything, he now reminds me of a young Roland the gunslinger from Dark Tower, which is a much better thing to be reminded of.

Ninja Theory is what has me worried here. Heavenly Sword was an overrated piece of crap, so I don't trust them.

@15 Then you're not reading enough on the internet. There are plenty more deal breakers in this game.

To kind of take the heat off of Ninja Theory a little bit, it was Capcom themselves who told them to change the look of Dante and to make him their own. So now while I have never played a Ninja Theory developed game before, I can't really comment on how the gameplay will turn out. I just hope that they will do DMC justice and the game turns out well.

@15 I'm not really complaining about how he looks. Gameplay 'should' be fun. So basically Ill have fun playing it but I wont have fun looking at the tool of a game character he's become. A lot has happend to the franchise from the first time I played the demo for the first game.

This "demons" would look more at home in Silent Hill if I'm being honest and if it didn't feature a character 5 feet in the air I would have been fooled=P

Who the hell cares about all this shit? Nobody can predict exactly how this game is going to play out when it is released, so why is everybody going on and on and on about Dante's motherfucking hair? It's like if you had a girlfriend you really loved, but then dumped her immediately because she dyed her hair green or something. Since when has the ethics of clothing and style mattered so much in a game made for mindless teenaged boys?
It does not matter what color Dante's hair is, as long as the game adheres to its roots of gameplay and story flow, and maybe they haven't changed it because they are deafening themselves to the threats an accusations to spend time creating a better GAME, and not giving the people everything they want. Something needs to change, and maybe Dante's hair will become white later on in the game (maybe he goes completely insane or something), but hair color and character design shouldn't deter anybody from playing this game, because nobody knows exactly what capacity of enjoyability it possesses.
So, stop pretending you know better than the game designers, and shut the hell up about the way Dante looks.
DmC, I await your arrival.

This game will be awful. This is pretty much what would happen if a fanfiction writer had the ability to make a game based on another series.

Can't wait to see how much better this is than 4, Ninja theory are one of the best developers out there & have yet to make a dud game in my eyes, And to all of you moaning that they've ruined a franchise GET USED TO IT!

Everything you like & enjoy you'll eventually see ruined in your lifetime, Your favourite music, films, games ect will all turn to shit, everything does :)

Well I am not particularly fond of the new Dante the real issue for me is them switching from MT Frameworks silky smooth 60 FPS to the Epic engines 30 FPS.

I loved the whole "Devil May Cry" franchise.. But this isn't a game for me.

They completely changed up the series and now its going to shit.

The story so far makes no damn sense seeing as they wanted to bring a "new light" to the story.

Where it left off, well.. It wasn't the best of endings, I'll give it that.

But deep down, the game is the shit, but this one will be shit.

I speak on behalf of myself and anyone else that shares my thoughts that this game alone.. Will be the end of "Devil May Cry" as we know it.

I hope you rich pricks are damn happy that you ended "Devil May Cry" with a preppy little bitch that looks like those guys that will give head for crack.

#28 I could not agree more!
"I hope you rich pricks are damn happy that you ended "Devil May Cry" with a preppy little bitch that looks like those guys that will give head for crack" They apparently do not understand. Go ahead & make this game but do not label it a reboot or devil may cry or disrespect the Dante name with this fag = metro sexual dumb-ass character.
Again for those Idiots that did not get the main complaint it's the disrespect to the Dante we know & the game!!!
