If you thought the Street Fighter and Mega Man cross-overs with Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise were ridiculous, then you haven’t seen anything yet. Capcom’s latest character to be tossed into “Pilico Costume” territory is none other than Devil May Cry’s Dante.
And not just any Dante either. Not the reboot Dante, not the quiet and brooding Dante from Devil May Cry 2, or the smash-talking teenage Dante from Devil May Cry 3. This the Dante as I best remember him, from the unforgettable original game. Same red coat, same Alastor sword. 100 Percent “vanilla” Dante, if you will, a true killing machine before he was injected with multiple personalities.
This trailer is hilarious, perfectly capturing the style of the original game as well. Now that the Nintendo 3DS has taken off in terms of graphics, Monster Hunter Ultimate 4 even looks like an early PlayStation 2 game!
We’re still waiting for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate in America, and we are expecting an early release in 2015. We are still waiting to find out if these latest costumes will make it to the States, and so far, all of them have been confirmed to do so. Pretty sure Dante will follow.
