    People seem to have this incredible paranoia of people getting paid simply for having a different opinion.

    Either way, this looked pretty awesome :3

    EDIT: Two dislikes already. What a surprise

    The hate here is pretty strong today. They REALLY don’t want this game to succeed

    • John Diamond

      disliking your comment isn’t the same as not wanting a game to succeed

      • Kaihedgie

        Then explain the mass dislikes on most of my comments simply because I expressed a positive opinion about this game

    • You are right, sometimes people just have no damn criteria and really low standards, or they are really stupid.
      -b…b…but opinions

      nah, opinions are like religions, i respect your right to have one but that doesn’t mean i cannot call you stupid for believing that shit.


    Well, that was fun…

    But why all the trailers of this game keep telling that yes, that guy is Dante.

    Even with the white hair and red coat is clear that this is game it’s just a new IP using the DMC name, I played the demo and think was bad but enjoyable in a guilty pleasure kind of way, definitely not in the awesome way that the Metal Gear Rising demo was.

    • Superior Spider-Man

      in my honest opinion, I didn’t even find the demo enjoyable. It’s not as bad as DMC2 but not as good as DMC4. If i were to rank my DMCs it would be DMC3>DMC1>DMC4>>>>>>>>>>DMC2. If I just take the demo by itself id rank it DMC3>DMC1>DMC4>>>>>>DMC>>>>DMC2. but hey, that’s just me maybe.

      I mean I am still gonna get it. but I get the feeling I’m really going to regret it.

      • ZEROthefirst

        I can actually throw DMC2 above DmC so far. Even though it’s abyssmal gameplay is what holds it back almost entirely, it’s actually fun once you get used to it. Not to mention even though as flawed as it is, it still feels like a DMC game. DmC just feels like it’s trying to say it’s part of this, but it just doesn’t fit in.

        • Superior Spider-Man

          DMC2 above DMC!!!!????? that’s harsh man! The problem I see with this so far is not just the fact that the gameplay isn’t all that. (Once again Ive only played the demo and seen a few gameplay videos) It’s the fact that it has DMC as a title, which, over the past decade has established itself as a high speed, stylistic hack and slash (If you forget about DMC2). It plays like your generic, almost slow hack and slash that you would see in the $20 bin 3 months after release. I’m looking at you Dante’s Inferno!

          Ive taken into account that this is a reboot and it’s gonna be different (honestly I stopped paying attention to the story after the ” Remember me, Dante? You’re my brother” trailer. Along with it’s obvious betrayal foreshadowing.) but there is only so much a guy that has been playing this series from the beginning can take.

          Though in the end my official decision about this game will come up when I pick this up on the 15th and I PRAY i don’t regret it. Why am I going to get this after everything I just said? Because I am a Devil May Cry fan! *sigh* I still have DMC2….

    • puchinri

      I hate to be saying it again, but I really think the game should have just been a new IP. Putting aside how my reaction to and enjoyment of it would differ (which, I still have problems with it outside of the DMC-“related” roots), it just seems like it strays so far from what makes a DMC title a DMC title.

      • Spirit Macardi

        I actually think the game could even work as just a spin-off to the series. Having it be a different character in the same universe who’s dealing with his own stuff. I mean, it would make sense that there could be more half-demons out there than just Dante and Vergil.

        I totally get where you’re coming from though. I understand that it’s a series reimagining, but there’s a line between interpreting something differently and just plain missing the point.

        • puchinri

          Actually, yeah. Even being a spin-off would be significantly better. (In general, rebooting the series was a very silly idea to me, but if you’re going to do it, I don’t think this was the way to go.)

          Indeed. To me, a reboot would imply taking plenty down a different route, but when you get to a completely different place, sounds like your path has strayed far off enough that the origin (and thus the connection) didn’t mean a thing.

        • Spider-Man

          Didn’t Capcom say it could be seen seen as a spin-off and that the original series was still there?

  • Maybe games should stop having CG trailers altogether.

    • eilegz

      or maybe have capcom do thems, they do the best trailers….. (with spoilers included)

  • Sergio Briceño

    The bank heist in GTA4 (Three leaf clover) was still cooler in my opinion.

    “My name is DanteY” can’t get enough of his pronunciation.

  • British_Otaku

    Capcom really are trying to beat us over the head with the “My name is Dante” stuff… >_>

  • Kaihedgie

    Seven dislikes already. For people who hate this game so much, they sure do care about every little thing about it

    • Hating something usually implies they care to some degree.

      • Kaihedgie

        When people hate something, normally try to avoid it as best as they can, not constantly go to every single subject pertaining to it. For instance, I really really like dislike Touhou, but I’m not going to look it up on the search engine just to convince everyone with a pulse to dislike it with me

        • Some are more vocal for as a fan of a series if they see it go in a direction they dislike it is perfectly understandable for them to lash out. Your example of you hating Touhou is not viable as you give the notion of not liking it at all. You must see from the perspective of one who has loved the series and with this reboot feels betrayed by it. Everyone has a right to their opinion. Far be it from you to deny them that right.

          • Kaihedgie

            Except I’ve played through the entirety of the old DMC games and I still want to play this, so I fail to understand why people need to constantly keep coming to every single video when they’ve made their point clear months, if not, years ago.

          • Luna Kazemaru

            THAT OPINION DUDE THAT OPINION!!! They have to repeat the same shit over and over and seek out everything about it to lash out kids because its that OPINION bro. No matter how redundant its gotten.

          • Kaihedgie

            Apparently opinion these days in gaming means “You can’t tell me what to do! I can say whatever I want”

          • M’iau M’iaut

            If they wish to scream it into the ether, that might be true. A few blind hate rights are lost when then choose to come here and cry.

          • Kaihedgie

            So the next best thing: Mass downvote everyone simply for thinking differently

          • M’iau M’iaut

            It has definitely been a bad day for that across numerous threads. My apologies to the community for that.

          • And I can accept that. But then there is “them”.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Yet reboots aren’t a new concept. JRPG sequels have largely always been new worlds and experiences. Movie franchises change everything every other installment, and comics are even more fluid.

        • tell that to all the people who has died by hate crimes

          • Luna Kazemaru

            That wasn’t funny at all dude.

          • you mean millions of people dying because of human stupidity is not funny? well maybe if you arent from outer space.

        • Göran Isacson

          I would say that the difference here is exactly what you write here: you have never cared about Touhou, but to those who really do care about DmC and dislike where the franchise seems to be heading… well, what else CAN they do but keep making their voices be heard? Silence is all too often taken as consent these days, and if you really care about a franchise and don’t like the changes, why shouldn’t you voice your concerns: how else will Capcom know they exist? As such I don’t think you can really compare this situation with your dislike of Touhou. You never had a horse in the Touhou race to begin with, but to the fans of old-style DMC a franchise they hold dear turning in an unfavorable direction is at stake.

          But then I see the people who give you like 17 downvotes just for saying that you don’t mind this games existence, and then I just sigh and must face the fact that some people really ARE just whiny little children. Oh well. At least all that stuff I wrote up there is MY reason for commenting on these threads, even if I seldom have that much positive to say about the game.

          • Kaihedgie

            Touhou is one of those many things being shoved into my face everywhere I go and has an insanely large fan-following so instead of going into everything just to whine about it, I simply avoid it when and however I can because whining about it is counter productive.

            Here’s the problem though, voices have already been heard…for two straight years. Everyone has gotten the message and frankly, a good deal of us are tired of it, so I have to ask: what’s the point? It hasn’t stopped development or convinced anyone to quit and it’s coming out in a couple of weeks despite all the crap being flung at it. People, both familiar or new to the franchise want to try it out. If you’ve already made your point, then you don’t need to look at any more videos or articles about the subject.

          • Göran Isacson

            When you say “shoved into your face”, does that mean that you see it talked about on a lot of forums to the point where it’s just part of the background noise wherever you are, or that people constantly confront you about it and get angry when they realize that you don’t share the interest? I ask because I’ve far too often seen people use that phrase when they really mean the former.

            I don’t know if you can really say that there’s a date of expiration on messages, though. Because at what point DOES apathy become the appropriate response? That it was going to be made was never going to stop happening, anyone but the most delusional realized THAT so I don’t really know how relevant that is to bring up. It will be made, and the hesitant will keep on following it because, again, they have a stake in this race. Whether this game turns out bad or good is important to them, so they will continue to discuss it until it is no longer a relevant topic to discuss.

          • Kaihedgie

            It’s the former.

            Tell that to the Star Wars and Gundam fans :U

            The prequels have ended long ago. People are still whining. SEED Destiny has ended several years ago and has been”fixed” in a few games. People are still whining

          • Göran Isacson

            I have to admit, I’m not big on Gundam so I don’t know what SEED Destiny did wrong… although I seem to recall a lot of people complaining about the protagonist Kira “Jesus” Yamato and the romance? Was that it?

          • Kaihedgie

            It apparently has something to do with the director. Shinn was originally suppose to be the lead role until Kira took over again because fans wanted to see more of the old characters again. I haven’t watched much of SEED Destiny myself, but it doesn’t seem bad from the episodes I did see. Unfortunately, the criticisms REALLY got out of hand and they pretty much swallowed every single aspect of the character, from his mannerisms and looks to even his own Gundam.

            And yes, these are usually the same people fanboying over the UC era of Gundam

    • They are all tsundere abt this game :3

      • Kaihedgie

        How is the concept itself so funny yet tumor-inducing when done?

  • Tien Ron

    I LOVE THE NEW TRAILER!! also the fact that he actually has a transformation! instead of it just being gameplay

  • eilegz

    while i didnt enjoy it so far it was better that what i expected, and the critics and reviewers have been so nice with it. lets see how it goes. personally i hate the whole “preorder” bonus, and the DLC and its seems that capcom cant understand it….

    A lose lose situation here

    • “and the critics and reviewers have been so nice with it.”

      just like TORtanic, dragon age 2 and mass effect 3.

      • Richard N

        Just like Shadow of the Colossus, Resident Evil 4, Dark Souls, Heavy Rain, Dishonored, Persona 4 Golden, and hell even DMC 3.

        • Asura

          Heavy Rain was godawful.

  • that isnt a new trailer…

    • It’s only been shown in cinemas up until now.

      • i guess that’s where i saw it! haha.

  • burning steak

    ‘Tell them, IM CUMMING’

    What the?

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    A pretty good trailer. The graphics were awesome for a Devil May Cry game. Dante did not swear and even saved that girl while acting like a douche. However, there is no need to keep introducing yourself when the whole city knows about Dante.

  • Shadowman

    This trailer is Boss!

  • Spirit Macardi

    I know they’re trying to make him seem more like the real Dante by having his hair go white in devil trigger, but with his body build and the shape of his face it makes it look more like he transformed into an old guy x3

  • Patricia

    This looks amazing.

  • Richard N

    I’m gonna be glad when this game is released, than we won’t have anymore DmC articles filled with these stupid debate and arguing we’ve had going on for years.

    Lets go back to complaining about COD, that never gets old.

    • John Diamond

      cod is da greatist

  • Valtiel Ikari

    any body else is getting anoyed as how in every single trailer new Dante just keeps saying over and over again “my name is Dante”?
    By this piont it’s give the impresion that the only things he can say is “my name is dante” and “F!ck you”

    I do admit that the trailer is not bad, definetly the best so far, but it still can’t convince me that the game will live up in any way to the Devil May Cry name, not in character nor in gameplay, the first trailer shows Dante as a sadistic torturer (whit the whole cigar to the face) and gameplay shows segment in wich he will turture enemy boss just for the sake of torturing, so why try to make him look compasionate now? He’s name s Dante, ok, but he is not and never will be Devil May Cry Dante, they should just change the game name already, the characters name are ok, just change the name of the IP.

    • Kaihedgie

      Been over this several times before: If they change the name, people will just call it a DMC ripoff

      • puchinri

        I would just think it were a new NT title, but I’m sure some people would. (Then again, a lot of things are called DMC-ripoffs anyway, right? And that can’t *really* be an insult.)

      • Valtiel Ikari

        and that would actually hurt less the game, trying to pass itself as a Devil May Cry game while being so far off remove from the actual franchise is what hurting this game.

        • Kaihedgie

          Yeeeah, no it wouldn’t. It would merely just fuel more fire towards Ninja Theory already. The fact that the people who have made their point long ago are still whining about this game should be an indication of how they handle any situation

          • Valtiel Ikari

            I insist, if this was merely a ripoff, it wouldn’t get the hate it’s getting. The greatest fear and reason to hate this is classic universe of Devil May Cray being replaced by this take on the franchase.
            so Yeeeah, it would help this game to change it’s name and be a different IP, since it’s already a different IP by itself, it is already a rip off, only that it’s making itself look like the real deal, that the problem whit this game.

  • Pat Kosa

    Dunno, seems like an average bank visit to me…especially the demons. Actually, seems Dante has got it easy…

  • heartless141

    My view on DmC.
    First, i was never for a second, against the new dante since the first trailer.
    Second, this time, the fan kindda ruined it. see? look up the first trailer, dante smoked, then he badassively poke the cig butt into a harpie or whatever it was. BADASS i tell ya. none of the trailer had voice back then i think? but dante maintained a really dark and emo aura.
    then the fans step in, so they fixed it, added the white hair (ok this wasn’t bad) and start forcing DMC3 esque lines on the new dante. so now my view on DmC is exactly what i felt with this trailer. The new dante is cool, as long as he keep on with the “more killing, less talking”.

    he can be mute for all i care.

  • kfrye

    I sort of get why people are butt hurt about this game but please stop riddling every single DmC article with complaints about it not being the same as the old Devil May Cry games. It’s getting sad.

  • Göran Isacson

    … Eh, not a very exciting trailer. The way it was shot left the action pretty muddled and slow, and it does raise a question I’m curious about. Is the real world affected by Dante’s progress in the demon world at all? Like, when we see the world shift into demon realm and cars fall into pot holes and Dante starts shooting stuff up, does he simply shift into the demon world and leave the human world behind, or is there some interplay between the two?
