Devil May Cry Creator Speaks Out About DmC
Written Friday, September 17, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
There have been quite a few big announcements coming out of TGS 2010 over the past few days, but none have resonated quite so much as Ninja Theory's massively divisive Devil May Cry reboot, DmC. Some people despise new Dante, some people don't seem to mind so much. Us? We're willing to give him a chance. We haven't even played the game yet, for crying out loud!
So, the Devil May Cry fans have spoken out in numbers, but what does the original Devil May Cry creator make of the bold new direction that the UK-based developer is taking with the character and the franchise?
Responding to questions on Twitter, Hideki Kamiya, who is also responsible for Bayonetta claims that he misses the old Dante and replied with a simple "whatever" when asked about how Ninja Theory might look to evolve the game.
Solivagant: "Do you think (Ninja Theory) will evolve the action game from your Bayonetta standard?"
nss_13_: "I miss the Dante you made."
Kamiya: "I miss him, too..."
Kamiya's "whatever" response might be interpreted as a means of avoiding talking about a game he has no personal involvement with, rather than a "yeah, whatever mate", but it's clear that there might be a degree of bitterness and cynicism about Ninja Theory's new take on the character.
Could it be that Kamiya dislikes the new version of Dante just as much as the majority of Devil May Cry die-hards? Maybe. We'll just keep an open mind and wait until we get a chance to pick up a controller for now. This Dante's innocent until proven guilty as far as we're concerned. As long as the spirit of the character is preserved, then that's fine by us.
