DmC "Home Truths" Trailer – Dante Finds His Roots and Lots More

You gotta wonder if Capcom and Ninja Theory wanted the controversy surrounding DmC: Devil May Cry. Ever since that awful reveal trailer turned off millions of fans, the game has slowly begun to look more like an actual Devil May Cry¬†title. Maybe they figured that nobody would be talking about a new DmC game if […]

New DmC: Devil May Cry Trailer Teases Weird Messages

Regardless of where you stand on this controversial reboot, one thing about this latest DmC: Devil May Cry trailer we can all agree on is that there is an overabundance on the words “Obesity” and “Stupidity.” Whatever developer Ninja Theory is going for here isn’t revealed, but it does make for a lot of needless […]

DmC: Devil May Cry Demo on the Way, New Trailer

If any game in recent memory needed a demo so badly, it would have to be the Capcom’s latest western developed reboot, DmC: Devil May Cry. Fans have cried out at this game’s western aesthetic ever since it was announced back at Tokyo Game Show 2010, and although backlash seems to have finally simmered down […]

Ninja Theory has converted me into a believer with their upcoming Devil May Cry reboot, DmC. While the world sits back and waits to see if the haters will have the last laugh of it, Capcom can smugly say “We told you so.” Two more trailers have found their way onto the net, and if you can handle the constant screaming of a raving lunatic, then you’ll be in for a nice treat.

Combat has always been the first and foremost important aspect of a Devil May Cry game, and Ninja Theory has not forsaken this core belief. The first trailer has the hip young Dante showing off this most stylish combos and racking up insane points. Based on our demo impressions, the combat feels just as fluid and intuitive as it looks. It’s never been easier to make Dante look like a killing machine.

On the other hand, Dante’s twin brother, Vergil has also been confirmed for a DLC release, titled Vergil’s Downfall, not too far down the road from launch. Similar to his personality, Vergil’s fighting style is much more efficient and to the point, lacking the flash of Dante’s maniacal flailing but dispatching enemies with quick effective strokes.

Regardless of whether yo are a fan of Capcom’s new aesthetic or the game’s horrific writing, each release trailer is proving to make it harder and harder to say bad things about this title’s potentially amazing gameplay. With the little time we’ve spent with it, we’re ready to set our differences aside with this new Dante and give him a chance of retail.

Will you be giving him the same chance?

DmC Devil May Cry will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on January 15. The PC release will be available later in the month on January 25th.
