E3 2011: First DmC Gameplay Footage Has Demons
Written Wednesday, June 08, 2011 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Here's a trailer for Ninja Theory's DmC: Devil May Cry for you, along with five screens. It's the game's first public appearence since its ill-received reveal back at TGS last year.
More importantly, however, it's also the first time we've seen in-game footage.
Though it's currently "work in progress," the gameplay seems to be ticking all the familiar Devil May Cry boxes. There's demons and sword swooshing and dual-wielded pistols all over the place. It's as over-the-top as you would expect.
In fact, given that this is a reboot from an entirely different developer, I was expecting something a little different from the series' usual business. Perhaps they are playing to the hardcore in an attempt to win a few friends back.
That would certainly explain why Dante's hair goes back to white when he uses the Devil Trigger. The character model revamp - including a change of hair colour from white to brown - was at the centre of fans' consternation, after all.
No release date yet.
